Bio Photo LAST ON LINE: 6 Oct 2015

Retired Federal Law Enforcement Officer with over 29 years of service. I am also the wife of a retired US Army soldier and the mother of a soldier who was injured in Iraq from an IED but was able to complete his tour of duty! SUPPORT THE TROOPS!!!! Honor them without complaining on memorials!

My memorials are lopsided as I manage a deceased cousin's contributions to Findagrave.

Some people believe the 1900 Census is all wrong for using birth dates. If that's the case, ALL the Census are incorrect. I know for a fact a majority of my relatives are correct in the 1900 Census...research people:)

DEATH CERTIFICATES are welcomed on my memorials as they are in the public domain and, although at times there are errors, they can provide a wealth of information.

Findagrave is again changing special flowers and modifying bios if they don't approve.

SUGGESTIONS: For those making suggestions, please research and provide the researched information for me to update. Additionally; 1: If someone has a duplicate memorial, courtesy is to ask that individual to delete it FIRST before asking Findagrave to get involved, and 2. When you receive an edit request please DO NOT update the information you received and then decline the edit you received - that is just NOT cool!

HEADSTONE PHOTO VOLUNTEERS-If you volunteer and post headstone photos, please take a photo of the COMPLETE marker and please take the time to ensure your photos are posted as right side UP (not sideways or upside down). I find more and more some individuals crop the bottom of the markers off - especially on military grave sites, which does an injustice to our veterans and the photos were supposedly taken by ex-military individual(s). You took the time to take the photo, then PLEASE take the time to crop correctly.

SSDI-Regarding the "Last Residence" in the SSDI: This is the last address of record, not necessarily where the individual died. Please do not ask me to list it as the place of death on memorial pages - to do so would only be a guess.

I work hard on Findagrave and have sponsored quite a few memorials. Please be a contributor and not just a person who adds names. It's great to see the people who do provide research.

Norman Henry Barnes
Thank you Greatly for posting his death certificate, as it proves he is not the same Norman Barnes in my family. Nor spouse of Florence Victoria Hunt nor father to Norman Earl., Adelia, Amelia, Mary nor son of Daisy Guy Barnes and Archie D Barnes. The headstone is very good and once you click is better read as posted on his memorial. Thank you for your helping proof he is unrelated but may aid others in future seeking him. Thank you very much. Carolyn

RE: Thorn
The Thorns have 2 large lots side by side. I am going to be in the area this weekend and can stop in and get a picture. I'm sure there is enough room for children to be buried there. Why don't you call the cemetery office and ask who is buried on Section 1 Lots 14 and 15. The lots are owned by B Thorn and Jas Thorn. They should have a record. Geo

I am asking the owner of the Thorn memorials to add them. I should have said that. Geo

Not sure why I have not put obituaries on the Thorn memorials. But I am posting them today! Geo

There was no stone for Jane Thorn on the lot. When I take pictures, I take a picture of every stone on the lot. In the Union cemetery, I have been taking all pictures in the section and posting them on Find A Grave.

Thanks for you help on the Thorn family. Geo

Mary A Burleson Hearne
Hey! Thanks for the note! I'm having fun with Canton Baptist Church cemetery! I didn't realize I (we) were related to so many people here! I took lots of photos that day and it's taking a while to load them all. I noticed an odd thing and thought it might be important… I was taking a photo for Mary Hearne… Find A Grave contributor Kim & Dana Grissom had a request out for it… noticed on her memorial you mentioned that her mother's grave was unknown. I took a photo of an Elizabeth Burleyson that is buried very near, if not right beside, Mary's grave. I don't remember exactly but could stop by sometime and double check. She already has a memorial on Find A Grave in Canton Baptist church. It may be nothing.. but you never know! Chat soon! Dana
