Bio and Links
Bio Photo Genealogy has become a hobby for me, kind of like working crossword puzzles. Taking an inventory of local cemeteries gets me out of the house, a little exercise and I feel like I'm contributing. I enjoy it.

I am related to very, very few of the persons that I identify. Therefore, if you are a relative that can provide a bio and/or update the relationship links, I will gladly transfer the memorial to you, ... just ask.

If you would like to request a Transfer, please do the following. (Make sure you are logged in to

1. From the memorial that you would like to acquire, select "Edit" followed by "Suggest a correction ...".
2. Enter your relationship and any other comments in the text area, then submit the form.

This will provide me with all of the information that I need to perform the transfer, and it provides good documentation.

These transfers are very much appreciated. I am in awe of your massive work! Just think of the joy you bring to families like mine with your very generous "hobby". Thank heaven for people like you --we all benefit. Kindest Regards, Nancy, a proud WHITFIELD/ROGERS descendant

You recently requested changes to several memorials. If these are family, please request transfers regardless of generation guidelines. Thanks.

You show him link to Laura Louetta Parker Haynes as his wife but this is his mother. Laura Louetta Parker Haynes was married to Elisha Maxwell "Lish" Haynes #26686662 and no one else. Cleveland went by the name Coy and shows him with his family on the 1920 census and is 7 years old. Please correct asap.

Thank you

Mr.dgresh ,
This is in regard to a gravestone that you took a photo of in Ball Ground Cemetery in Murray County , Georgia. It just had a date on it 12-6-1838. I am certain that this is my great-great-aunt Elizabeth Ballew Elrod. Her husband John H. Elrod is buried in this cemetery and so are her parents Daniel and Mary Harriet Jackson Ballew. This date is also her birth date. Just a note for any genealogist out there searching for Ballews or Elrods. These two families also lived in the Ball Ground Community of Murray County. Both her and her husband were born there. Cindy Ballew Wells.

Hi dgresh,

Thank you very much for the transfer. Your hobby is a benefit to all of us who are not able to visit their loved ones.

Thank You
Hello. I wanted to take a moment and say thank you. I have been searching for my fathers grave for a very long time now. In fact, I wasn't even sure if he was dead. Today, I got on this website and found the picture of the gravesite for Johnny Ed Long, thanks to you. You have no idea how much this means to me. I am inspired now to pay this forward and submit my own photo's to this website.
I wrote down some of the requests for photo's and went out today and visited a few cemeteries and took pictures.

I'm not sure what prompted you to take the photo, but I am forever grateful. I had not seen my father since 1993. Now, thanks to you I know the location and I can visit his grave now.

Keep doing what you're doing. You made an impact on my life and I'm sure you will for others.

Take Care,
-Jonathan Long

Are you related to this lady? I have her ECA records and she was Sarah Jane Chastain, daughter of Obedier and Mary Ann Keith Chastain. Her step father was Silas Pinkney Bohannon. She is listed in the census records as Bohannon. Her father died just after Mary Ann's 4th child, so all kids were real young. Sarah states most of her family history in this ECA. Please reply or email me. Thank you.
