Bio and Links
I live in central Florida in Brandon (just east of Tampa). I started doing genealogy just out of curiosity about 15 years ago. My mother gave me a genealogy project that my great aunts had started years earlier (before computers) and my hobby began. I am married and have 3 grown children and 4 grandchildren. Genealogy is my passion and I wish I had more time to spend doing it. I also enjoy helping others, hence my submissions to "find a grave". I like to walk cemeteries and photograph the stones. I have even drafted my husband into helping me, but I love the "alone" time. I know that when I run across something new that has been beyond my reach I am so excited. I hope by submitting headstones that I am able to help someone else find that little something they haven't been able to achieve. You may email me privately at if you prefer. Any photos I take are open for public use. You do not need to ask my permission. Happy hunting.

RE: Henry Marion Knowles
although I am a Knowles, I cannot find a link to his side to be my relative! So, no need to transfer, just sharing info I found while trying to see if we were related. You are very kind to offer!

I made corrections on the above mentioned memorial the beginning of June. If you are unable to complete the edits, would you please transfer the memorial to me? My number is 48051734.

Thank you very much.
