Bio and Links
Bio Photo I encountered the website quite by accident while researching family members. Immediately I recognized the value of this resource for future generations.

I have been reluctant to readily discard family histories encompassed in the vast collection of funeral programs acquired through years. Find A Grave affords a perfect opportunity to share the valuable information contained in these documents.

My goal is to share accurate data as recorded in these documents or from my personal knowledge in hope that it will be helpful to others.

Current geneaological focus is on descendants of (1) Antrum Lesesne (Nero Lesesne, Derry Lesesne/ Lesane, Abram Plowden, Effie/Affie Plowden, Titus Abraham) and (2) Luke & Sarah Davis of South Carollina (Sumter and Clarendon counties).

RE: photo glitch today
Thank you Mary. It had to do with the hijack that occured last week. It has been quite a mess for them to clean up. I don't think they are done yet!

photo glitch today
Greetings Mary,

There was quite a Find A Grave website glitch this am.
I was working on Memorial# 93726388, Lucy A. Burbank Randall and her family. On this particular memorial one of your photos was added to this memorial (along with one other photo from a different member) I was hoping that you could remove it.
It was quite the glitch! Lucy's daughter ended up with info and photos from someone in Finland!
All three memorials I was working on at that time are messed up.

Thank you for your help.

Fort Jackson National Cemetery
Hi, I requested some edits for memorials in Fort Jackson National Cemetery and wanted to provide source information. The Department of Veterans Affairs has a website that gives the birth date, death date and plot number for each burial in National cemeteries.

Thanks for your contributions to Find A Grave!

Gilliam Family Cemetery, Gadsden Co
Mary, could you tell me where the Gilliam Family Cemetery is in Gadsden County?

I am the coordinator of the Gadsden County GenWeb site, a free genealogical web site about people who were born in, lived in, or died in Gadsden County. I have a lot of cemeteries photographed, but not this one. I would like to add it to my list of cemeteries.

Also, would you share your photos if I gave you credit for them?
Angela Cassidy,
Gadsden County GenWeb Coordinator

Incorrect photo
Hi, just wanted to let you know that the photo you have posted for BARBARA CONSEILLANT is the incorrect person (Kathy V Carter). I've placed the correct photo for Barbara but since you are the manager of this page only you can remove the Kathy photo.

James Myers Jr was a CSM not a Maj. I attached his headstone. Happy Holidays.
