|Bio and Links|
Hello all. I've been doing genealogy since I got started with a project in 6th grade around 1983. I have always found the stories and lives extremely interesting, even though I sometimes bore others when I ramble on and on. I live in Minden and I have visited most all of the courthouses in Northwest Louisiana countless times, and have visited most of the cemeteries as well. My main families of research interest are the Holland, Canterbury, Caskey, Bates, Culverhouse, Herrington, Johnston, and Duckworth and associated lines on my side, and the Cage, Hicks, Hutson, Ellis, and Fraser lines on my wife's side. I'll help any I can, and look forward to contributing as much as I can to FindAGrave!|
The photo for my profile image is a very large and unique tombstone located in the Old Homer Cemetery. One of the reasons I find old cemeteries fascinating. Some tombstones are truly exquisite works of art!
Also, I don't mind maintaining any of my family branch listings at all, if you have any you want to hand off. Just ask! I understand the 4-generation 'rule' that F.A.G. has, however I am a firm believer that whoever is more closely related to an individual, they ought to be able to maintain a listing. A first cousin should be able to trump 'the 2nd cousin of my mother-in-law's brother' or stuff like that. I have no problem transferring any memorials to someone that is more closely related to someone than I am (except maybe a couple). I am not a 'numbers' person. Most of my memorials are related to me or family friends. I also believe that everyone deserves a memorial, even if you are unsure of where they are buried. That is what research is for. I also don't mind anyone using any tombstone pictures I may have taken. Feel free.
Good luck hunting!

Thanks for taking the time to photograph and post headstone pictures to find-a-grave for members of the Winn family. The time you took to do this is greatly appreciated.

Your welcome. I knew where the monument was, but did not know that she did not have a memorial. Good luck. If you need any other help in the Carthage area, let me know.
|Mary Anne ||RE: Bissell pics|
I enjoy taking pictures of tombstones. I was out at Old Union Church looking for my great-something uncle Alonzo Green Kidd and great-great-something grandmother Caroline Fort Kidd and decided to take the list of requests with me. Luckily yours was among them.

Barry, Thanks for the information.
|Charlotte Fulfer||Edwin Vernon headstone|
I went to the Ector County Cemetery and found that Mr Vernon is buried there, in the Rose Hill part, Row 2 plot 25C. But there is no headstone.

Barry, I'm just realizing (my 1st effort as Find a Grave volunteer) that this may not the same Roy Gentry that you had wanted. Where did you get those coordinates for your Roy Gentry? Those coordinates C,36,5,3 were in the FindAGrave request. This cemetery is 'single use' for graves so there are not 2 people buried here (versus New Orleans where policy is multi use as long as caskets are wood and 1 year and a day between burials).
it appears you had wanted Roy "C" Gentry who died in 1977, not Roy "DeWitt" Gentry who died in 1965. I believe Roy DeWitt Gentry is buried at those coordinates.
This cemetery's records are very manual in that the cemetery staff assist with these 'location' requests between internments and other duties to then investigate "historical books and card files".
Let me know. I will be going back next week for another request so could research your Roy Gentry further. Perhaps a cemetery staff member will go with me to the site to confirm I was at the correct coordinate. Nice people, however active cemetery so very busy.
Please delete photos if erred.
