Bio and Links
Bio Photo I love finding where our ancestors came from and where they are laid to rest. Have enjoyed walking through cemeteries since I was a kid, reading the markers and wondering what joys or sorrows each person experienced in their life.

I welcome any contacts relating to the following families:
The Rogers, Ventis, Lett, Cate(s), Warwick, Irick, Simmons ... all mainly east TN families.
The Cummins and Bishop families from KY (mainly Whitley Co area).
The McAbee's, Camp, Brady, West families from upstate SC and south west North Carolina.

Are you wondering if you can use my pictures on your family tree, tree or website? The answer is yes if you would kindly just add the notation 'photo courtesy of Jillanita through'.

For me, Findagrave is not about the numbers I is about connecting people with their deceased relatives. Otherwise, many of us would never be able to visit the final resting place of those we may never have met but still love and care about.

If you are requesting a transfer of a relative of yours, please make that request through the memorial.

Don't forget that as long as we keep their memory in our hearts, their names on our lips, we share with others about their life or we share a picture of their final resting place - these things ensure that they were here and their memory will live on.

Please invert the gravemarker photo, it is hard to read upside down.

Thanks for the photo marker. Sid Armstrong was an interesting person at Tabernacle ARP church. He was always well liked by all. His sister RUTH was also a favorite.

Thank you for accepting the update that I submitted. I wanted to let you know that I'm excited to have that information on his memorial. I was hoping you would consider adding his obituary that I found to his memorial's bio, since it contains such great information about his life and his family took the time to write it all out. Thank you for all the great work you do on Your work touches so many people whether or not they reach out to say thank you.
