Bio and Links
Bio Photo Well, I'm older than dirt. Have dabbled in genealogy on and off for awhile. Have a family cemetery in my front yard and have always been particularly interested in a couple of branches of my family.

Published my great-grandfather's memoirs and that was fascinating.

I tend to take spurts and found my family cemetery already listed here, so that's given me renewed enthusiasm.

I have no problem with someone else using any photos that I post, and am happy to transfer a memorial if it's not in my family line.

RE: Eugene Keeton at Mt Carmel
It was no problem sence I was going out there anyway. Sorry that I could not find it. The Jordan stone is hard to read and I was going to try and chalk it, but never found it. It is already posted on find a grave. Just wanted it for my records. Keep doing what you can when you can... THANKS

Eugene Keeton at Mt Carmel
I saw where you posted that you would look for this grave. I went out to this cemetery today looking for some Jordans. I did not find them, but while there I was also looking for James Scott(which I found) and Eugene(which I did not find). I found an old cemetery list and he is not listed. Maybe a field stone or a unreadable stone. I am going to post a problem but leave it open. Just thought I'd give you a heads up.

You are welcome. When I'm bored I do public service for folks. Findagrave is one of my favorite sites!

This memorial is pre-planned and is probably not your great-aunt's page. This is a double granite flat maker with Celia's plaque on the right, the other spot beside her does not have a marker. Please remove your photo request as the photo should not be posted until after she passes.

Good grief! What beautiful, BEAUTIFUL(!!!!) pictures of Boyd, Ila, and Lehman's Headstones. And overnight, too!!!!

I'm almost afraid to ask about the flowers. Did you, perchance, get there on Memorial Day? Or do you just keep gorgeous bouquets in you hip pocket for pretty pictures?

Thanks again, Miss Iris, they truly are lovely pictures.
