(John C. Carter)|
(Will be spending part of the summer in southwestern Maine).
Happy to photograph at any cemetery in the Tampa Bay, FL area! (or in the Lakes Region of SW Maine).
Born in Dover, DE, (to parents from NJ & WV), I lived in southern CA until age 12, & then in Raton, (a small town in N.E. New Mexico), which I consider my home town. I attended NM State Univ for 4 years (with a 1-yr exchange to Oregon State Univ), but did not complete a degree at that time, & later moved back to southern CA, settling in the Orange County area. After 10 yrs in the O.C., I moved to St. Petersburg, FL (Tampa Bay area) in 1990, & have been here ever since.
I have avidly worked on my family's genealogy since the age of 15 ... 40 years this summer!
I am a member (and former chapter registrar) of the SAR (Sons of the American Revolution) with 7 qualifying ancestors submitted (more to come!), a member of the SUVCW (Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War) with 10 qualifying ancestors or brothers of ancestors (more to come!), a member of the SVR (Sons of Veterans Reserve (affiliated with the SUVCW), a member of the S&DUSCT (Sons & Daughters of U.S. Colored Troops), a member of the Nanticoke Lenni-Lenape Indians of New Jersey, and an associate member of the Lenape Indian Tribe of Delaware.
I'm very proud that every single branch of my ancestry has been in America since at least pre-Revolutionary times.
Having taken numerous college courses over the years, I finally bit the bullet & enrolled in a program in 2003 to complete my degree, & graduated from Eckerd College (a local, private, liberal arts college) in May 2005 with a B.A. in Creative Writing.
Besides genealogy & writing, my other interests include: clock collecting, books, movies, photography, the Civil War, the space program, many types of music, & visiting cemeteries!
Thanks to the creators of this site for doing such a great job!

Thank-you for the picture, I am very appreciative of your talents and your kindness. May you be bless with all you do in your sharing.
|Bill||Ella V. Williams|
I figured out you had created a memorial for Ella V. Williams and added the photo for her grave. I deleted the one I created. I've already linked them as spouses. I plan to write to the FL Vital records to get her death cert. Maybe that will have her exact dob & dod, and her maiden name.
Thanks for taking the pictures.

I've resubmitted the updates for Mary's grave information. She passed away Jun 21, 1979 in Saint Petersburg. Thank you for offering to research her obituary.
|Mike Schreiner||Ludwig & Evelyn Seufert|
A sincere thanks for the photographs. They look great; it is much appreciated.
|Susan Bloom||Mary A Bloom|
Thank you for the picture of Mary's grave. I don't know who Barbara C Futcher is, if you could remove the double shot of the two of them I would appreciate it. Thank you again for taking the time to locate and photograph her.
|Zack Lofton||RE: Floyd and Rose Walther Long|
P.S. I have to contact the Anderson-McQueen Funeral Home again to try to find if Floyd's youngest son, Ernest Long was buried somewhere or cremated. I made his memorial and put "unknown" for method of disposition.
Would you be willing, or know someone who could look up Floyd and Rose's obituaries?
Thank you very much!
