Bio and Links
Bio Photo I WILL BE HAPPY TO TRANSFER YOUR FAMILY MEMBERS TO YOU, if they are not part of our direct line. Thanks to everyone who has added information to my memorials. Find-a-Grave works because everyone shares and tries to provide accurate and complete information for each memorial. You're all very special people.

I specialize in "filling in the blanks". I like to research (even if they're not related to me) and find out who these people were, who their families were, where they lived, etc. In other words, I like to put "flesh" on the "bones" in the cemeteries.

The other reason I try to "fill in the blanks" is because of all the help you contributors gave me when I was just getting started in genealogy. THE FAMILY LINKS REALLY MATTER!

"...all these ancestors in your tree, generation upon generation, have come down to this moment in time--to give birth to you...You carry the hopes and dreams of all those who have gone before. Hopes and dreams for a better world" -Lawrence Overmire

re: Mabel Thigpen
That is such a wonderful picture of Mabel Thomas Thigpen and her husband, Jesse. Could you add the picture to Mabel's memorial as well? No, not related ... like you ... just filling in the blanks. They are related to me through DISTANT relatives by marriage etc ... and was working on others and trying to link up some other family. It would be wonderful if you posted the portrait of the two of them on both. What a great picture! Thanks ... and God bless you for all you do for so many!

According to marker shown on his memorial the date of death is 29 June 1949 rather than posted on memorial 6 July 1949. I tried to put the date on the edit page for you.
Thanks for all you do in remembrance of all those gone before. You are A+ in my book. I really appreciate your hard work and efforts. They mean a lot to me.

Tinsley and extended families
Thank you so very much for your work and dedication to the cause of Find A Grave. You are indeed a great friend to all of us who seek our extended families. Find A Grave is one of the greatest tools for genealogists today, because of caring people like you who like to tie up loose ends.
Thank you again for all your help. I wonder if you would mind if I copy your photos for my personal ancestry and family treemaker files. I am trying so hard to leave a trail for my family and descendants to follow. My time is running out and I seem to take two steps forward and four back.
Again I say thanks to you and all of Find A Grave workers who give of their time and efforts and resources to help others.

Indiana Taylor Family
I have been trying to fill-in some blanks with regards to my Taylor roots. I know I am related to the Taylors buried in Riverside Cemetery in Noblesville, Indiana, but do not know where to go from there. Martha LaPrudence (Mosier) Taylor is buried in Riverside and she was my great grandmother. Anything you may be able to help me with would be so appreciated.

Thank you,
Colleen 'Bledsoe' Marvel

Hi! Thanks for your kind offer to transfer. Unfortunately, we are the "photo" people of FindAGrave, rather than genealogists. We're up to some 23,000 photos in Find A Grave in some 25 Cemeteries!

The best person to transfer these to would be Lorraine Lambert (#47307083). She has family in the County, and is a very thorough researcher!

Here's the link to her profile page. You can send her a message, and she'll respond directly to you.

Nancy Ann Garren Duckworth
Hi! Took a look at the lady you tagged as her mother, Sarah Whitaker Lanning, and she does not have "Garren" in her name space. Is it possible she was married twice? Also, is it possible to have 2 daughters named Nancy? See

The Duckworth family is special to me. There were a dozen or so members whose graves were transferred from one cemetery to another (Blue Ridge Gardens). There are a bunch of "Unknowns" among them. Fascinating family!

The photo you have posted for Sophia Keitle Barton (#27311343) is actually her father's tombstone.

Thanks for your help.
