Bio and Links
Bio Photo I recently read on another bio, "our ancestors can't tell us where they are buried, we have to find them." So true. I'm so thankful to all the volunteers that have registered the graves in their areas. My personal goal is to help register graves in my area that will hopefully help others locate the final resting places of their loved ones.

Please remember that while FindAGrave is a great tool to use in genealogy research, the clear mission of FindAGrave is to register the graves. If you are new to FindAGrave, please click on the "Help with FindAGrave" menu selection and read the FAQ before starting.

Yellow daffodils I've placed on a memorial usually signifies a connection to me in some way.

I'm happy to transfer memorials within the FindAGrave guidelines found in the FAQ (and I'm somewhat flexible on that). To request a transfer, click the "Edit" tab on the top right of the memorial and then "Suggest a Correction" tab to send me a note requesting the transfer, indicate HOW you are related, and don't forget to provide your Member ID. I'll consider all requests, but you might want to consider building a Virtual Cemetery (see FAQ).

I'm also more than happy to provide links where the final disposition is known or add additional information. Again, click the "Edit" tab and "suggest a correction" to send this information.

A word about photos I've placed on memorials. I'll gladly give you permission to use my photos if you ask me, indicate that I have granted you permission, and provide a link to their FindAGrave memorial. I have found several of my photos posted in family trees on the web without my permission and without a source to FindAGrave. This is a copyright violation and poor research sourcing. Again, please just do the right thing and ask if you'd like to use anything I have posted on any of the FindAGrave memorials.

To all the volunteers that walk through long forgotten, overgrown, tick and snake infested cemeteries, taking photos of all gravestones (even broken or half buried ones), and create memorials, thank you. Those gravestones may disappear or become completely unreadable in the future. For your efforts in registering the graves, thank you for all you do.

Happy hunting!

Moulden corrections
I thank made the corrections you requested but I wanted to make sure that I entered all the info you wanted. Did you want me to remove the name reference that is on the census by each age category or just change the wording so that the info is more specific, such as "of 5 and under 10?
You can reply to if you want.

RE: I W Hankins #101137148
That comment about J W's father "possibly John William Hankind" should have been "possibly John William Hankins"

RE: I W Hankins #101137148
John W Hankins, born about 1921 in Tennessee. Parents were William Hankins (possibly John William Hankind) and Elizabeth Carpenter (sometimes spelled Elisabeth). Appears as John on the 1850 census and as J W on the 1860.

That's all I have so far.

I W Hankins #101137148
Is it possible that the entry for I W Hankins in Mount Liberty Cemetery, Madison County, Arkansas, should actually be J W Hankins (John W Hankins). The birth year of 1821 is correct for John.

Gravestone Photo Permission
I am happy to see that you photographed the gravestone of James Alford in Round Mountain Cemetery (Memorial# 58820546).

I would like to add this gravestone photo to the (non-profit) Alford American Family Association's collection of Arkansas Obituaries, where his obituary is (or will be) included. You can see the current collection at

May I have your permission to include your gravestone photos? If so, the photo caption will say:

Photo from [cemetery name, city, county, state]—
Permission granted by the photographer, S Barger [or your full name if you prefer]

And thanks so much for your gravestone photo work!

Best regards,
Pamela Alford Thompson (Find A Grave #47195155)
Obituaries Project Manager, Alford American Family Association

Witt photos
Thanks so much!

In the photo with the two monuments, could you add that the tall monument on the left is for her daughter.

Thanks so much.

From someone is claiming that there is a large grey rectangular WITT monument there that is for Little Berry Witt?

Would appreciate it if you could check that out sometime when you are at the cemetery.

Thanks again
