Bio and Links
Bio Photo My love of research and genealogy since 1981, and my dedication to the cemeteries that I have been visiting for people to find where their loved ones are buried, is truly enjoying. We enjoy the peace in these old cemeteries. My husband and I love finding and taking pictures of the old headstones and wonder what history they must contain.

If you come across one of your loved ones which I have added, and there is an error, please feel free to let me know. I will be happy to transfer memorials over of your immediate family members, unless it is a family relative.

Please note & take into consideration that I am not related to a lot of whom I have added. I add them to Find A Grave so family members can also find where their ancestors have been put to rest.
Sincerely, Laura

Just sent an incorrect correction. Sorry about that. His death date should be as on the headstone which appears to be October 5, 1856. Thanks.

Thank You!
Laura, thanks for putting the obit of Charles Raymond Cross on Find A Grave. "Ray", as he was known, was my mother's brother and I had no obit for him until now. Because of the obit, I now know a second wife's name, as well as other new details about his life.

You have helped me as well as countless others because of your work on Find A Grave. Thank you for what you do!

JOHN P Patten
a link has been added to this grave My grandfather showing his mother as anna santee. as far as I know this is incorrect.. his parents show married july 3, 1901 and john perry was born oct. 1902.. I am gonna try to find his birth certificate or death certificate..hopefully one of my aunts or uncles, john perry patten's children will have it. I was just wondering if you could tell me or ask who did this to verify the information.. not saying it couldn't have happened and no one knew.. but I don't think this is right..please and thank you.

Luella Hartog Hogan
Find A Grave Memorial# 36037168 I suggested that you change the last name for this record because Forest Lawn cemetery records indicate that is her final name. Perhaps she was first married to John Hartog, but then remarried after his death to somebody named Hogan.

RE: James Warren Coan
You are welcome. I haven't been to Sparkman in a long time. I now live in GA, but that is where my mom side of the family is buried as well as where she will be buried. Lots of people could not afford stones back then. I made the memorial from the listing of Sparkman.

Carl John "Charlie" Peterson - great uncle?
How are you related to Charlie and Emma Peterson?

I have a picture of Emma. Are you related to Roy and Corrine Peterson also?
