Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been interested in genealogy for many years and in researching have found myself in many different cemeteries and have fallen in love with them. They have so many stories to tell, some happy and some not so. And as the years pass and the old stones are getting more and more worn and hard to read I am so glad to know so many are trying to preserve them by taking photos and transcribing the stones and getting them up on findagrave. What a wonderful place this is with so many hard working contributors.

It is not necessary to "own" a memorial to make changes. I try to make all edits, corrections and links in a timely manner. Please use the edit tab for this purpose.

Please remember to check your edits at the top right of your profile page.

Hiram Brown
Hi Janice,

Thank you so much for the photo of Hiram's headstone. I really appreciate you volunteering your time! I submitted an edit--no rush, but Addie was actually Hiram's daughter. :) Thanks for helping to further my research!

Thank you
Thank you for updating the memorial request!
I wish more people on Find A Grave cared about it or
would turn "their" memorials over to someone else
if they are not willing to put in the time like
people like you.
Thank you again
