Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi!

A little about me...I'm a amateur photographer/genealogist/findagraver as well as an extremely proud mommy to six children (3 girls/3boys) and 16 grandchildren! :) I've been working on my own family tree since about 1994...not long after my Grama passed away...she raised me and so I do occasionally refer to her as my Mommy. Family that I am working on are Sanders, Denny/Denney, Cummins, Daglish, McCord, Heater, Galbreath and Lobb. I live with my best Ed as I call him! and our doggie, Jettie. I found Findagrave while researching our family and have been a die hard "Graver" since!

Update: Married my best friend, My Ed, Oct 3, 2014 and am now officially a "new" person lol

PLEASE If you want to request a transfer or updates to memorials do that through the "edit" tab/suggest a correction!!!! When I have many many many edits/transfers/messages to read and answer it gets frustrating to have to look up the memorials for each request when if done correctly I can just click on the link included with the suggestion/edit...quicker for me to get it done for you :) :)

If someone has an issue with any memorial I am involved with please be polite and adult and send a note through the SAC feature and I'll gladly do whatever I can to make you happy! Leave me a rude hateful message and I'll first delete it and then forget about it. That way I'm returning the favor!

From Find A Grave's FAQ...
"The ultimate goal should be to have meaningful, accurate memorials that honor those who have passed away, regardless of who created the memorial or who maintains it."

I have no problem whatsoever doing any updates or links to my memorials and definitely will transfer if I'm not related and you have a direct connection.
I love being able to link up entire families as far back or forward as possible!!! It's like a big puzzle and I also love puzzles :) It gives me a great feeling to get one done! I always try to find a little information to add to the memorials that I create so that it is more than the mere fact that someone was born and they died. Sometimes I'm unsuccessful but believe me I usually spend some time searching before I give up! Stubborness I guess lol.
If I ever add a picture to a memorial that you would rather I didn't please let me know but I prefer to hear from the "manager" of the memorial.

Edits you submitted
As I listed on my profile page I don't accept edits. I am, however, happy to transfer memorials (as long as they're not part of my family). You must access each memorial you want transferred and request the transfer from there.

Quick Information
Hello Colleen,

Just want to check with you if you are related to Dorothy Mae Stanley (#91602102). The birth date checks out. She was born in Illinois and lived in St. Paul, Minn. Her mother was Adeline Stanley and stepfather Lloyd O'Donnell. Let me know if this clicks. Thanks a million for your time.

Just wondering if you have access to IOOF in Alexandria's records. On, it shows a death cert for William A Knapp 17 Sep 1968. If so, would you want to add him?

Thank you!
I just simply want to say thank you for taking the time to update this site. I never knew anything like this existed until I found it by accident.

Preston Robert Elmore
Would take the head stone photo you have on Preston at the Center Valley Cemetery in Hendricks Country, Indiana. Then put it on Robert Preston Elmore at the same cemetery? They are the same person. I will delete this one later
