Bio and Links
Bio Photo It has been a joy to work on Find-A-Grave during the last 6 years. I have tried to mainly enter memorials that I have photographed, because I feel that photo's don't lie. In our area there have been quite a few entries to Find-A-Grave using old handwritten surveys. I appericate the effort that was taken to get these surveys & the effort to enter them on Find-A-Grave, but the people that entered them made many mistakes and have caused families, looking for their loved ones, to not be able to find them. I hope that my photographs have cleared up some of the mess. If you need corrections please use the edit on the memorial. I will transfer, to releatives within the guidelines of Find-A-Grave. I do not link to unknown burials (please read Find A Graves rules for unknown burials) Location of body unknown is used for recent deaths where the disposition is not currently known. Final disposition must be determined and updated within 30 days.
My main family work is Meador, DeCocq, Sellers, Sanders, Graham, Turner, Lee, Johnson, Devin, & Stephens
God Bless Everyone that has helped me!!!

For some that don't get the hint. I am a Meador, My mother is a Sellers, My Grandmothers were Sanders & Graham. My G-Grandmothers were Lee, Turner, Stephens & Lucas. My wife is a DeCocq & her grandmothers are Bucklin, Johnson & Hastings

PLEASE DO NOT USE MY PHOTOGRAPHS on any site that you have to pay to get into the site. I took the photographs for the entire world to use for free!
I spent my time photographing, editing & entering them for their family so they might see what they look like now. I did not take them for someone that does not care about them one bit except to make a profit! Richard Glenn Meador

You have done it right. The other person put it in as 1948 and you are right in 1964.
I am trying to reach the other party so they will delete richard of 1948 in greenwood. I see you put the obit in and it explains it self

at least its corrected.

Thanks so much for taking the time to snap a photo of Myrtle's grave. She was my 2nd cousin.

Toppy Gorham
Actually Toppy was a girl. I have an article from the Greenwood Democrat circa 1934 where Ellen Gorham was named one of the Mother's of the Year. She is listed as having had 7 girls and 2 boys with 6 children still living. I know that Toppy and Lena died in early childhood and Freda Gorham Scales died in 1933. The article lists the living six children, Eva, May, Jim, Catherine, Robert and Willy"Shune". I personally remember a framed plaque in my Great Grandmother's house that said "Toppy, our angel in heaven". When I asked about it my Grandmother (Catherine Gorham Bailey) told me Toppy had died as a child.

RE: Toppy Gorham
I don't know anything about your Toppy Gorham. The one buried in City Cemetery in Greenwood AR was my Great Grand Mother's child. She was Ellen Black Hughart Gorham from Missouri. Her husband Robert T Gorham was also from Missouri.

Nolan Springs list
I printed out your post with all the names in the cemetery for my personal use. So I may eventually delete the post some time since it's so long. Thanks again-- I help people with their genealogies so I may need to reference it some time in the future. I never could figure out that cemetery so now I know.

RE: Nolan Springs
Thank you so much for the information. I had no idea of the origin of the cemetery. You have done a great service for people looking for their loved ones in the future.

Nolan Springs
Curious to know more about Nolan Springs Cemetery. I am from Fort Smith and have seen the cemetery for years, mostly when going to the Red Barn. I went to Forest Park today to look for some picture requests and decided to drive by Nolan Springs. It looked very nice, tidy and well tended today although I did not get out of the car. I was struck by how few stones there are. Considering how old the burials are and how far out away from Ft. Smith that was at the time do you know the history of the cemetery? Who was Nolan? Was it a private cemetery? I saw the recent request for Minnie Holland and thought I would go to the library and check for a funeral home record to maybe fill in the blanks. After seeing the cemetery today from a different perspective I realize the work you did in recording and transcribing this cemetery. It just makes me sad that more markers are not there.

That would really make me mad! How horrible...
after all that work and someone did that!!!!

I had some in the right Cemetery and someone kept insisting they were in another location, even after I found death certificates and contacted the Cemetery, so finally I just deleted mine...THEN he found out I was right! And gave them back...
Meanwhile a woman re-added some that I had done, and I lost three or four...
SO I am so sorry you were done that way.

I am always a little leery about transferring.. I also spend a lot of time on those that I add.
