I grew up in Plain Dealing, Louisiana, but now live in San Antonio, Texas. I have been actively involved in genealogy since 1968. I am retired and enjoy spending my free time working on genealogy and family history projects. I began adding memorials to Find A Grave primarily to provide genealogical information on those who lived in the Plain Dealing, Louisiana area, many of whom I knew personally while growing up there. Because I am not related to most of the people for whom I have created a memorial, and since I have not researched their family histories, I have included only that information found on the headstone in each memorial. If there are simple mistakes that I can correct, please email me with the corrections and I will change the information. If anyone would like to add additional information such as an obituary or a bio, or display relationship links on any of the memorials I have placed on Find a Grave, you can also email me with the information and I will add it to the memorials as time permits. I will also be more than happy to transfer ownership of any memorial to those who are direct descendants.
