Bio and Links
I first became interested in our family's genealogy. Then I started collecting old family photos. As my interest grew, I started exploring cemeteries near my hometown, where I learned that tombstones often give valuable information.

Since I found Find a Grave, I have started walking through cemeteries taking pictures of all of the stones. I love the old stones, but they are often hard to read. I take multiple views, then photoshop them to enhance the lettering. I enjoy adding pictures of the tombstones to the memorials. If I don't find entries for the tombstones I have photographed, I add their names to Find a Grave.

You are welcome to copy the photos for your personal use. PLEASE, if you want to put them on Ancestry.com or any other website, please give credit to me. All you have to do is mention the Find a Grave memorial number or my name. It upsets me to see someone else take credit for uploading pictures I spent hours collecting or photoshopping.

If you know additional information you would like added to a memorial I created, I would rather transfer management to you than make the changes myself unless they happen to be members of my family.

RE: Nelson Myers
Doreen,I did not want you to do anything. I just noticed Nelson was on your findagrave.com. I came across his name from the 1936 of May news story about Martin Adams.

Find A Grave Memorial# 119774223 for Suzanne L Irey
Doreen,
I am researching Suzanne Irey and found the memorial (# 119774223)that you created for her. However I also found another memorial you created (Find A Grave Memorial# 119774222) for someone with the same name. Are these the same person. Only memorial #119774223 has a headstone. Please advise.
Thank you,
Shauna Fleming

Longacre transfers
Hi Doreen. Thank you for the Longacre transfers.
I appreciate your quick response.
You must live in the Marion County area. My husband's family is from Fulton in Morrow County, but his mom had lots of relative in the Marion area. These are his mother's grandparents.
Thanks again,
Nancy

RE: Clyde F. Wildman

Charles Adams
Doreen, Is this possibly the son of Martin and Sarah Belle Adams? i have a record of his birth as in 1887. Could be a typo. Sarah Belle Adams' findagrave memorial mentions a child dying early in life. This is from an obit in the Marion Star Feb. 8 1913. Thanks. Be Blessed Jon D Eager
