Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a genealogy junkie! I am not as "owner" of graves, nor am I a "Collector" of names. I am a retired lady who has the time to comb records and record names that are not yet on this site. Recently, I had the joy of adding 2 small cemeteries to Findagrave. Something pulled at my heart as I listed babies, families and individuals that I could find NOTHING about. How I hope someone finds their loved ones because of the few hours I spent typing.

I discovered Find A Grave when I was doing a web search looking for information my great great grandfather. Imagine my delight when I found his grave listed by a kind gentleman who was not even related. I decided then, if I visited a cemetery, I would write every grave down, just in case someone else was looking for their relative. I did not ask for a transfer of that grave, I just thanked him for giving of his time to list my families graves.

I have had the joy of meeting many wonderful people who use this site.

TRANSFERS: I will transfer managements of graves UNLESS I AM DIRECTLY RELATED. Please send your request by edit and I will check my family tree. If your requested name is not in my tree, I will gladly transfer it. If it is there, I will explain my relationship to that person and why I do not wish to transfer. Please understand my wish to keep my family grave listings. I am if you had taken the time to walk the cemeteries, search the records and list the names, you would feel the same.

I appreciate all the kind additional information and corrections. (Sometimes we all suffer from fat-finger syndrome and miss the right key!) Forgive me if I have made an error on your loved ones grave. Let me know and I WILL CORRECT IT.

The main names I am researching in my family: Knowles-Sandlin, Patterson - Brown, Gornto-Allen, Delaney-Roebuck, Entrekin- Martin, Beall-Watts and Holcombe -Watson.

And my husband's family, Miner-Hughes, Nail-Bibb, Freeman-Gantt and Rimel- Headrick.

I don't know which is correct, however, I didn't see the headstone with Mattie Claude Ellis in the area.

Do you think I should create a second record using Mammie Claude Ellis Smith in case someone is looking for that name?

Thanks for responding so quickly. Please don't think I am trying to question your expertise.

RE: Edits
That is fine I just thought it was a lot of work for you.

Oh, I wanted to mention to you after reading your profile that you and I are a lot alike in the respect of researching the graves in cemeteries. I live in Fort Worth and I have started taking pictures of Baby Land in one cemetery where my Daddy is buried. It fascinated me all the tokens of love that are left on the Babies grave. I was really surprised to learn that no one had took the pictures in that area and uploaded them to Find A Grave. Blessings, Debbie

Robin, I thank you for your kindness. I will send you more info as I find it. I am not related. I just like looking stuff up! LOL! I did send you another correction on his birth date. I read it says 1936 not 1935. It is funny the birth day says March 11 instead of 12 and the year says 36 instead of 35. My only guess is depending on who is left when someone passes away, the family may take an educated guess at their birth date. I know in my family there is a Bible that reads differently than what is on tombstones. LOL! You can do whatever you want with the info. If you want to keep it the way it is where it reflects the tombstone you may. You could just put a note that says Social Security says a different date. I leave it to you to do as you wish. Again many thanks, Debbie
