Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was introduced to Geneology in 1980. I've been addicted ever since.

I am THRILLED to make transfers to ANYONE provided they are going to improve & take care of the memorials and that I have not placed a RED FLOWER on it. BRIGHT RED FLOWERS indicate my family, relatives and V.I.P.'s. I won't usually transfer these memorials. I'm not picky about relationship, family or not. Just because I walked into a cemetery with a digital camera or I opened a cemetery book and created memorials does not mean I own anything or have the right to be difficult or greedy ....... I promptly fix mistakes and delete doubled memorials, please let me know! These memorials belong to US as a group and they are actually OWNED by not me.

The TOMBSTONE and LOT pictures I have placed are yours to use for other genealogical purposes to include other sites.

This site is not called "Find-a-Document".
Documents take up what limited space there is for photographs of the PERSON, HOUSE, or tombstone and GRAVE AREA. Please respect the memorials I manage and resist posting copied paperwork or certificates to where the photographs belong.

If you have some corrections, requests, links, additional info., ect., PLEASE use "EDIT" tabs located on upper right side of each memorial for all these things, not this Bio. page or my Email. Thank you for your time and any help or corrections you can send!!!! !

I have great respect for "UNKNOWN BURIALS". If you have OLD memorials that are "unknown burial" and you want to move it to the proper cemetery just because you found my memorial posted there, fine, I am still HAPPY to delete my memorial provided yours is older and more complete. I will even move my grave pictures to your memorial if you prefer. Let us NOT have doubled memorials!

Need to Contact You Personally
Hi Todd,

I have been working in for 3 years now. I am also friends with a lady in my town here in Ohio and helping her go through old photos, mementos, etc.

She had a pile of photos, a baby album and a family photo album from the Dean family and extended relatives. She is not related but her mother (now deceased) somehow was keeping these things. She didn't want to throw them out but had no idea what to do with them. Because I work in every day, I did some sleuthing and then turned to Find A Grave and that is how I found you. You are the "keeper" of numerous Dean relatives' memorials so I know you will be very interested in this pile of photos I'd like to get to you or a member of your family.

I'd like to contact you personally instead of through public messages; let me know how you'd like to proceed.

RE: Shannon's
There are no other Shannon's at Acacia Cemetery, only Robert and Grace. As for Grace (based upon records) birth 22 Nov 1884, death 14 Jan 1969, buried 17 Jan 1969, plot: Sec. X Lot 182 N/E. I have a copy of her obit that was attached and will upload it to her page so you can see it. Regards, Rebecca.

RE: Beers family
That's okay, I didn't take it like that. I hope you are feeling much better.

Wow, thank you so much for doing that - way above the call of duty for certain! I can't wait to see what all you have found and added to the listing.

I really appreciate it very much! Thank you for all your hard work and effort on this.

Question of Isaac Shannon
Hi Todd, my name is Pam (Baker) Shirey. Issac Shannon was my 4th G-Grandfather. I've been doing family research on my family for some years now. I did a "Find a Grave" request for Issac and came across all this cool information that you have given on him. I see where you and i are related. :)
You referenced the Shannon family bible. My question for you is, did most of your information that you shared on Isaac, such as place of birth, etc.. come from that bible? I do most my research on and a lot of what i find on him is conflicting.
My email is:

Emile and Charlotte
Hello, Mr. Dean, I want to thank you for two things. First, I found myself smiling looking for "bright red flowers" thinking this was a great method for organizing. Also thank you for the transfer of the sunflower memorial :). Louis was my ggf's first cousin. It is a pleasure indeed to come across kind people on findagrave. Sincerely,

Merrin Transfers
Thank you for the transfers. They are all my family and I have already been able to link then in. Of all of them Richard L. is my closest relative. He is my grandmother's first cousin. I just discovered his murder. There was a front page article in the Mansfield News. I don't have access to Mount Vernon papers, but would love to find his obituary. By all means continue your work on him. If, when you are done, you would like to transfer him to me, I'd be happy to take over management. Thanks again for all of your help!!
