Bio and Links
Bio Photo "When you remember me, it means that you have carried something of who I am with you, that I have left some mark of who I am in who you are. It means that even after I die, you can still see my face and hear my voice and speak to me in your heart." Fredrick Beekner


First of all, I would like to thank the many volunteers that give freely of their time, knowledge, and efforts on behalf of people searching for answers and hoping to breathe life back into their ancestors, walking cemeteries, taking photos, editing photos uploading and creating memorials.

Find a Grave is kept up by a United community of genealogists, historians, (beginners and experts) all of which of course, are VOLUNTEERS. We do not get paid for what we do here.

Creating memorials and fulfilling photo requests is a labor of love for me. If you appreciate something I've added, please pay it forward! If you receive "freely", give "freely"

I firmly believe that our ancestors deserve more than just dates and a cold hard stone on their memorials. It is because of that I try to add as much information as is available to me.

Please click the "Edit" tab on the individual memorial, then the "Suggest A Correction" link on the specific memorial you would like me to update or transfer. PLEASE DO NOT SEND CORRECTIONS AS PUBLIC MESSAGES

If I SUGGEST A CORRECTION to you, please copy and paste the info into the bio and add dates and places in the appropriate fields so they can help others locate the memorial. Maiden names and links to parents are also helpful. If you want to see my sources please just ask. You can also check the memorial, as over the last three years I have been trying to give credit to those that submit valid info in the bio of the memorial.

I spend a lot of time traveling, photographing, editing and posting my photos because I love doing it. It also gives me a lot of satisfaction if I can help others find their family. I do not mind if you use the photos for PERSONAL use.

I do not transfer to requesters who are rude/demanding, have no profile or who are collectors -- however,I'll always update and link memorials within a day or two or as time allows.
Transfer requests should be requested on the "edit" tab. Include your relationship, and your contributor name and number.

Keep in mind, those of us who list these memorials are only human, sometimes we make mistakes, let us know,and Never forget: We Are Volunteers. VOLUNTEERS. Our time and work are given freely.

The quote of Fredrick Beekner is borrowed from my cousin Mike Perkins memorial.

I am of the belief that no one is truly gone, until they are forgotten.

So with all this said, I will continue to visit cemeteries and take photos of graves, and hope someday to find more of my family,and maybe some of yours. Until then I will remain.... Calmly Searching..........

RE: Communication
As far as I know, we aren't related. I send lots of messages and SACs about memorials, and that's probably where you heard my username. I don't expect contributors to acknowledge my messages or thank me for them unless I ask for a response. I know they are all very busy people with lives, jobs, and families to take care of.

The photo on my profile page isn't one of my dogs. I never manage to catch one of my dogs doing something funny when I have my camera or smartphone in my hand. Right now, my husband and I have seven dogs, two of them very old. We have been adopting abandoned dogs for 39 years now, every one of them well loved and well taken care of, as they all deserved, hence the name DogMama. Our sons are following suit, just not on the same scale because they don't live in the country!

I'm sorry you had some rough times in your life, and I hope everything is much better now. When I have problems, I just love on my "babies."

Re your email
Hey no problem, happens all the time we get excited to find a family member to only realize opps wrong one...

Good luck in your searches,


Their suggestion:
Hello Lisa,

I sent a request earlier for a transfer. I have went back into my records, and I believe this is the incorrect Cecile P. Dickinson, no matter how I try, they just don't match up. Sorry.

Forgive me for bothering you about it. I will keep looking.

Hope you are having a happy Sunday.

RE: Abeyta and Duran
I think on the last one there was a difference in the name as first published and when the final obit came out that would probably explain one of them, I also have often found with Find A Grave that a general search will come up with no results only to find when then checking the cemetery when more info is available there it is even spelt the same, I think their search criteria still has some way to go, thanks for your help I only am pitting the Chieftain ones on that keeps me busy enough.

RE: Mount Auburn Cemetery
I'm doing well for almost 79 yrs. thank you for asking. I don't know if my side of the Parsons family actually knew Mary and Rosamond. They lived in the same town, Auburn Me. My grand-father Harry B. Parsons 1887-1956
a 1st. cousin was an alcoholic, and so he didn't always get along with his relatives. He did however take his older children to vist Cora Parsons and her sister Annie Grace "Parsons" Peasley a widow in Lewiston Me. right across the River from Auburn. this may have been the late 1920's or early 30's. I had the please of meeting a Tom Peasley grandson of Annie Grace while visiting Fl. years ago. He was such a nice person and lovely wife Dorothy. He's since died. I do hope you get to visit where your ancestors lived and are buried.. Take care and please keep in touch.

RE: Hazel Blevins
I suppose it would be too much to make a photo request of her cremains?

Just kidding. ;-)

RE: Hazel Blevins
I mentally regurgitate as I find new information. Sorry. My bad.

I think for a non-burial that you can indicate she was cremated and where her ashes were scattered as a reference to anyone looking at her memorial. If not, you might mention it in the notes or bio section.

Thank you. Didn't mean to be a pest. :-)
