Bio and Links
Bio Photo When I was a kid, my grandparents would take me with them to visit the cemeteries where relatives were buried. They would stand by a stone and talk about the person buried there. I wish I could remember those stories. This is a way to record stories I am now told. There is a story under every stone and cemeteries full of untold stories. I hope this will give people a chance to record a memory before it is forgotten, then lost.
Recently, my husband got a Harley and we have combined our two interests. We ride the bike to various cemeteries that folks request photos from and have fun reading the old names and hunting for the requested gravesite. Sometimes just finding the cemetary is quite the challenge!
I do research on the following family lines: Lillpop, Askren, Green, Bell in Indiana. In Mississippi I follow the lines of Taylor, Ferguson, Scott and Holden.
"Do not, my Brothers and Sisters, think of the cemetery with tears, nor meditate upon the coffin and the shroud with gloomy thoughts. You only sojourn there for a little season, and to you it will not appear a moment; your body will sleep, and if men sleep all through a long night it only seems an hour to them, a very short moment. The sleeping time is forgotten, and to your sleeping body it will seem no time at all—while to your glorified soul it will not seem long because you will be so full of joy that a whole eternity of that joy would not be too long!" Charles Spurgen

You are very welcome. I think it is wonderful that you and your husband ride and explore cemeteries. My husband & I both own motorcycles and have combined our hobbies of riding and visiting cemeteries also. Maybe one day our paths will cross. Take Care :)

James Britton
You have a photo of James Britton 1800 1879 tombstone and a memorial. He is Buried at Rose Hill Cemetery. I purchased the Cemeteries of Panola County book from the historical society and he is not there. Do you have a location of his grave so that I can try to have him added. If so; you could add that to his memorial. Thank you so much for all your hard work. LA

Palestine Cemetery
Hi. I visited Palestine Cemetery the other day while looking for an ancestor in nearby cemeteries. I took quite a few pictures because I hadn't checked before I went to see if they were on findagrave. It was a very sunny day and the light hit the headstones just right so that the pictures turned out incredibly detailed and legible. Would you mind if I post some on the memorials since they are so clear? I didn't want to do it without asking first. - Jill

Green Farm
I have provided some more names for this cemetery. The property owner kept private records and forwarded to me a typed sheet of paper with some details on them. There are many unmarked, or unreadable graves.

no sorry i dont use it, other than the free sections for my state etc., the subscription is a bit much for me at the moment. i do have a public tribalpages tree if you want to check it out, my email is, ill send you an invite to the tree through email so you can review the kesner stuff, ive been slowly ading the Kintner info, its actually a section i just got into, i try to verify every name in it with some type of documentation which is how i ran across your memorials on find a grave. lots of loose leaves on this tree as i use it to gather info and im so unorganized its easier to keep it all in one place on line than try to keep it on paper lol. thanks so much for getting back in touch with me.
