Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing genealogy for many years. One of my favorite things in researching is visiting cemeteries. I love to just walk around the tombstones and try to imagine what the people's lives might have been like. I have been contributing tombstone pictures to this site to help fellow genealogists that are a distance away that can't visit their relative's gravesite in person.

My family has been a big assistance to me in my project for this website. My son, Trenton, my daughter, Alena, and my husband, Terry, have helped me take tombstone photos. So a big "THANKS" goes out to all three of them!!

Quote from Findagrave: "The goal is not to "own" every memorial of those to whom you are related. THE ULTIMATE GOAL SHOULD BE TO HAVE MEANINGFUL, ACCURATE MEMORIALS THAT HONOR THOSE WHO HAVE PASSED AWAY, REGARDLESS OF WHO CREATED THE MEMORIAL OR WHO MAINTAINS IT." Please keep this in mind when you request a transfer as it takes a lot of time and money to do research to add memorials to this site. I love working on this site, but I have run into some problems just recently.

I DO WELCOME ADDITIONS, CORRECTIONS AND FAMILY LINKS. The more information the better!! I usually get the updates done within 1 or 2 days.

Hiram Fugate gravestone photo
May I have your permission to download the photos of the gravestone of Hiram Fugate & his wives (Memorial# 41607218)?
I would like to upload them into my Ancestry family tree.
Thank you for your consideration.

I've had too many people suggest changes, only to find they were in error. So I don't do that any more. Please email me the document that shows Neal is the son of Joseph. I have the names (though not the memorials) of a number of his family; Joseph is not among them. Thank you, Roberta

John Crawford (Union Christian Cemetery)
Find A Grave Memorial# 29892898
--the Memorial says died in 1839 & that he was 34 years old, but looking at the picture of the headstone, it looks to me like it says 1859 and 54 years old. I wanted to ask before I tried to correct it, because I may just be reading the picture wrong.
I'm looking for a different John Crawford, but I thought I'd point this out since I saw it.
