I got into this research as a personal and final request for my mother just before she died. She had worked many years on the family history research and had done it with paper and pen. I promised her I would work to get it on the computer. Well you guessed it, I am now hooked as well.
I use FAG as a means of communicating to others the information I accumulate. I appreciate your postings on my memorials, but please, no death certificates. When I find a memorial created by someone else, and I have information that will enhance the memorial, I send a SAC to that person with the information. Each SAC I send is sent with love and a desire for valuable information to be shared. The only negative thing I have to say is that if you respond to me abusively, I will send your message, in its entirety, on to FAG, for appropriate action.
The surnames I am interested in are Breshears, Blackwell, English, Carter, Gantt, Tuckness, Arnold, Cooper, Hogg, Harden, Sherertz, McNair, Sims, Butler, Gallaher, etc.
I'll be happy to transfer records to you if you are relatives of those I have management of. Please let me know if you have corrections or additional information that you would like posted. The proper way to request these changes is not here on my profile page in the comments. To request changes of any kind, go to the memorial in question, click on the  at the top right of the memorial and then select the first option. That will give me a link to the proper memorial. Changes requested here on my profile page will be deleted with no action.
I create memorials for anyone that has a headstone in the cemeteries I survey. If there is no date of death, I am uncertain as to whether they are deceased or not. As a result, I create the memorial and connect them to the spouse that shares the headstone.
I post pictures of the persons based on what I have available. If you have better pictures, feel free to post them and send me a note so I can decide if I want to remove the one I have posted.
I have no desire to amass high numbers in any of the categories that FAG tracks. I hope you don't either.
I have added a link to my local Genealogical Society here in Polk County. You will enjoy our site. It is not my personal web site.

Hi Jan, I just wanted to thank you for the beautiful work you have done. I've just seen some tombstones of relatives in that cemetary that I have never seen before! Thanks so much for this! Rochelle

Hi, I was confused because there are two listing for Lindley Prairie Cemetery. One in Cedar County, the correct location. But there is incorrect Lindley Prairie Cemetery listed in Polk county. I almost listed a person in the wrong cemetery. I don't know how to get the incorrect Lindley Prairie Cemetery in Polk County off Find A Grave, do you? Vickie

Hi, Do you know if Lindley Creek Baptist Church Cemetery, Goodson Polk County and lindley Prairie Cemetery, Fair Play, Polk County are two different cemeteries? Thanks, Vickie BYRUM Schley
Jan: Thanks for answering my inquiry. I was just wondering where you were at the time as I lost track of you. Joe

Jan: Are you still stumbling around in them East Texas Cemeteries ?? Joe
Hello Jan. I did not post the GPS coordinates. Don't know where it came from. I did however, post two more photos for Martin, and one for Mary. I am not a Powell. But I have known family members for about 50 years. I will send you an email soon. Genealogist

I had requested a transfer a few weeks ago (that you kindly did) and started looking for some other memorials you might have created that I have ties to.
I have a lot of family members with roots in Missouri.
Wishing you a quiet and peaceful evening.
Hello Jan, fellow graver. We recently spent 2 Saturdays hunting for and finding this abandon cemetery. We chopped brush and saplings for hours and located all the stones, and am happy to let you know we found Martin and Mary. I do note that Mary had the middle initial of "E" on the headstone. We took photos and posted them here on Find A Grave. I got permission from the owner and he told me he would be willing to mow and keep it up since we went to the trouble to clean it up. Thought you would be glad to know, because there are a about 35 Powells in here. I am friends with a descendant of Elias Powell senior. One question, do you know which Powell is Martin's father? I would like to link them. Sincerely, Genealogist
