Bio and Links
Bio Photo I ask that when photos are added to memorials that I own, please be sure it is a quality photo showing the entire marker, and that the photo is not sideways or upside down. I take great care to take nice photos for the memorials owned by others, going as far as to edit them on photoshop to ensure they look the best they can. I would appreciate the same care for photos added to memorials I own.

You may use photos I have taken of grave markers, but please note credit with " BJShields Find-A-Grave Member #47495665".

I appreciate any information anyone wants to share that can be added to any of the memorials I've posted. I don't mind transferring ownership if the memorial is not one of my own relatives.

If you would like to use a personal photo of a person, please check with me first (unless it is a photo I included from an obituary, which I note in the caption of the photo).

If there is a photo or any information that family members would rather not be included on a memorial, please don't hesitate to let me know and I will be happy to delete it.

If you happen to notice I've entered a duplicate of another memorial, don't get upset, just let me know and I'll be happy to delete it. I make every effort to ensure that I don't create duplicates.

Raymond H Jones #97013992
Raymond H Jones was my grandfather whom I only met once. I do know that he had four children. One was my mother Shirley LeCompte Enns who was born in 1926 and died 2013. The other child was a son, William Caulk Jones who is still living in Key West, FL. I put added a picture of my grandfather and his wife Nellie. Hope you will add these other 2 children. Thanks, Diane Enns Hooper

Alexander D. James (1856-1911)
I was wondering if you knew that Alexander D James is the son of Joseph James(1817- ) and Annette Frampton(1822- ). If interested I have posted the whole Joseph James family on Familt Tree. I linked into information someone else had put on there in the past. I am still working on who is Annette Frampton's father.

By the way on the previous question I asked, there are two Henrietta Framptons. One fits the birth date but both have claimed the death date. I applies to only one. Am still working on the other.

I do not know how long I'll run with this but have attached several lines together. Am hoping to get it all into one tree but will have to see how many wills, deeds and so on I can find. I already have a probate file filed in November 1919 and I can't find any of them in the 1920 census.

All part of the fun.
Thank-you for all of your work,
Larry C Dodge

Henrietta E Frampton
I am working on the Frampton families in Maryland. I have seen your name on a lot of their Find a Grave Memorials.

I have a question about a specific person. Henrietta E Frampton, daughter of George Washington Frampton and Eliza Caroline Ross. I have found her in census records through 1870 then I lose her. She is 13 years old in 1870 giving her a calculated birth date in 1856 or 1857. The 1860 census is consistent, giving her age as 3 years. I have seen a published death date of 9 August 1915 and burial in Saint Luke's United Methodist Church. The church's website says their cemetery is called Mount Olivet Cemetery.

You have a Henrietta Frampton listed in Mount Olivet that is a Higgins. The death date matches the one I have, but it is a different birth date. I am wondering if she is a different Henrietta Frampton. Is Goldsborough a previous married name? The Memorial, #114705168, has no picture of the stone. Does it have a marker?

I beg your pardon for imposing, but I am hoping you have some information that I don't have. I'll keep looking but if you can help me, I would appreciate it.
