Bio and Links
Bio Photo
I am a Wife, Mother, Grandmother and Great-Grandmother. We collect, glassware, vintage jewelry, Cowboy Collectables, and dust. We love Flea Markets, Country Auctions, and long highway yard sales.

I started Find a Grave as a Photo Volunteer and decided that was too hard. I started photographing the entire cemetery, this way I could add them to the Computer at the Research Center and put them on Find a Grave also.

I walk the Cemeteries and take the photographs of the memorials I put on Find a Grave. I do not set at the computer and put memorials on in another state that I have no intention of putting a photograph on with it. I do not do this for the numbers, I do it to help others.

I will have to add to the above and say this winter I have been going through our county Cemetery Books and Creating new Cemeteries and making memorials for the ones buried in Family Cemeteries. It has been interesting to find them on Census records and connect them. I will try and locate the cemeteries and make a picture if I can. Sometimes the older family Cemeteries do not exist anymore. I did not want to add memorials that I could not add a picture. I decided that these people did not deserve to be forgotten, thus said here's hoping I can find a picture to add to the memorials. Keeping our County as up to date as possible.

I believe family should be with family. I make mistakes, I am human, just be nice when you let me know. It is not my intention to make duplicates, but names, initials, nicknames are not all known, and I gave up mind reading a few years ago. I try to correct, link or transfer as fast as I can. I do not believe it takes two months to type a few numbers.

If I add a photograph it is from the Funeral Home until I can add the gravestone marker. If I add the obituary it is from the Funeral Home or from the Daviess County Public Library, Owensboro Area Obituary Index database.

I look at the old monuments that have weathered many storms and mowers and wish they could tell of what lies beneath them. I feel that by photographing them now could be the last means of preserving them for our generation. Find a Grave is a wonderful site for sharing the photographs of family and discovering death and birth dates that might have been lost.

It is wonderful to meet and make friends with people I would otherwise never know. I love being able to help others in any way I can.

I believe in God, Family and Country. If this offends you, I am sorry. This is a short bio of me.

God Bless you and
God Bless the United States of America

RE: Ottis Burden
I place the information in the section of flowers in the event the creator ignores my request or refuses it. Also, if other add flowers to the memorial in time the information is pushed lower and risks being unseen. Having it IN the narrative of the biography makes it easy to see and permanent. If you'd rather not add it that is fine. Thank you for your response. gary

Frank L Johnston

I was cross checking some extended family information when I came across your memorial for Frank L Johnston, Find A Grave Memorial# 90192838. I don't know if it is a transcription error or if the stone is wrong, but the other information I have on him indicates that his name was actually Frank C Johnston. I thought I would call it to your attention in case it needed correction.

Anita, I know you and Carol are working together so I'll let you two decide but Julie Ann Weedman is posted twice in Sunnyside; once from you and once from Carol.
