Bio and Links
Bio Photo I transfer memorials that are not related to me. Please follow the guidelines and state your relationship.

Please use the edit tab for requests. This does prevent accidents.

Also, when requesting transfers or information remember to ask nicely. Questioning someone's faith is no way to get help.

Be patient with me. I work full time. The number of edits I receive is ridiculous. Twenty to forty per day! Personally I feel this is not a genealogy site.

I have actually begun to think about quitting this hobby.

My families are Pillow, Jordan, Yates, Cash, Campbell and Mays.

Feel free to use my pictures. That's why I post them here.

No more blindly accepting links to other memorials. I am getting conflicting information. I will be verifying these myself before accepting them.

Dora T. Wicker
Not a family member but was visiting Meade Cemetery yesterday and noticed no death date for Dora T. Wicker. I seen you were able to get the month & year when I checked here.I wanted to share with you that I found the death certificate on Ancestry and it's July 11, 1968. Just wanted to help out in case you would like to update it. Have a wonderful day. 8)

RE: Death Certificates
Would you object if I cut off the medical part and posted only the personal information on the death certs? For an example I changed your uncles. Dave

Elizabeth Brandt Beathe in the Mount Camel

I made a couple of corrections on Elizabeth's memorial through the white edit tab.

Below I'm sending you her U. s. social Security application that proves these changes.

U. S. SOCIAL SECURITY APPLICATIONS AND CLAIMS 1936-2007 ----- Name: Elizabeth Rowe Beathe - [Elizabeth R Beathe] - [Elizabeth Rowe Rowe] -- SSN: 227181068 -- Gender: Female -- Race: White -- Birth Date: August 3, 1913 -- Birth Place: Lofton, Virginia -- Father Name: Charles K Rowe -- Mother Name: Lillie A Brandt --Death Date: January 30, 1999 -- Type of Claim: Original SSN. Notes: June 1939: Name listed as ELIZABETH ROWE BEATHE; February 4, 1999: Name listed as ELIZABETH R BEATHE -- Source:

Thanks for all your hard work and your time and trouble in answering my request.

No hurry. I know how those correction come in bunches.

I was just reviewing some of the many memorials you've created, adding pictures, etc., and wanted to take this opportunity to say THANK YOU for all the hard work you've done. Your generous time and effort has touched more families than I can imagine, I'm sure. I know your work has meant a lot to my family! Eternal appreciation, Margaret.
