Bio Photo My brother & I are new to Find A Grave, although he has been doing our family genealogy 12+ years. I think Find A Grave fills the gap for people who either don't have the time or money to do full blown genealogy.

Being of the last generation to grow up without computers as a commonplace thing the family information & stories come from Family Bibles or across a campfire as a kid. If we don't write it down or input it now it will be lost to future generations. Also it's nice to leave a Memorial to passed family & friends, not to be forgotten. I think linking family Memorials to each other will be important to future genealogist.

I believe in taking the best photos of Grave Markers possible, for 2 reasons; For people who live a long distant away and can't make the trip, the other reason is it only takes one 14 year old with too much time on his hands and a sledgehammer to destroy history.

I will be glad to transfer a Memorial to a family member or friend who has more information then I do. I do this out of respect for the dead and history.

David, I am happy to see that this memorial is transfered to you. I went to school with the younger of their children up to Richard and knew Monroe through his business and children. I believe that Monroe remodeled the old house,but I don't know who lives there now. Good luck with the memorial.

RE: Edye Belle Simpson
David, thanks for the reply. I was raised in this area, about a mile from Jack and Edye Belle and went to school with the younger kids. They were well respected in the area. If I can help in any way please let me know.

Edye Belle Simpson
David, I enjoyed reading the story of Edye Belle and Jack Simpson. I believe that they are both buried in Bethel cemetery in Ouachita county. There is already a memorial for Edye Belle there but if you are relate I'm sure the creator of this memorial would transfer it to you.
