Bio and Links
Bio Photo 20 July 2010,
I am seventy years old and have been married for 52 years. We have three children and five grandchildren.
I started working on the family trees, of my husband and myself, about 50 years ago. I was never told that there would be no end to it.
My children gave me my first computer for my birthday, this year. I am having the time of my life. Find A Grave is the best thing that ever happened to a genealogist. Pushing buttons is much better than reading film until your eyes cross.
I like history (local best of all) and I like to read.
Most of the memorials I have added are not my family. I will be more than happy to transfer those to anyone who can add information and/or pictures. You do not have to be related. A good friend is better than nothing.
Please do NOT add death certificates to my memorials. Just ask for a transfer and then when it is your memorial you can add anything you like.
Please send documentation with your edits. I don't change my memorials without documentation. You may prefer to ask for a transfer and that will be fine as long as it isn't my family.

Would of been nice had the person that took the graves, actually got close enough to take the headstones, no matter what condition...I take pictures of gravestones as well, and I always try to get the right light, and take some flour with me, when I can not read them. What is wrong with your posting of the info pertaining to Mary M. Cantell, is everything. Where did you get all the info form, cause a LOT of it is incorrect. Rev. Issac NEVER had the middle name of " Throton", He was NEVER married to Talitha Cloud, nor was the Cloud family living nearby...Rev. Isaac was ONLY married Twice, to Elizabeth Unknown and Mary Unknown, both Documented as well as his 19 children by the two wives...a LOT of Cantrell info on Ancestry is wrong, cause people just copied from trees without doing their own research... and thus the info is wrong and continues to be passed down...

RE: Fisher family
No they are not my family either. I just spent 2 days taking picture of all the gravestones there and hope to have all of them posted in a week or so.

Transfer inquiry #5215971
Would you like for me to transfer to your management the Hurst members of your family that I now manage? I have someone requesting I transfer Hugh Farmer Hurst to their management but it appears that she is not related...just has some information. I would rather transfer to a family member...
Please get back to me soon. Thank you

Old Collins Cemetery, the original now renamed
I have now separated the 2 cemeteries and their people. The original Old Collins Cemetery is now the Old Collins Family Burying Ground. I hope this will correct all the confusion and misinformation.

Old Collins Cemetery
Unfortunately, when you took this cemetery name much confusion and misinformation has resulted. 2 Old Collins Cemeteries appear to be 1 now. Entirely different groups and burials appear as 1 in the same location . I'm going to redo the first cemetery as the Old Collins Burying Ground. Please be aware this is NOT the same cemetery as the one you have entered.
