Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing genealogy for many years. One of my favorite things in researching is visiting cemeteries. I love to just walk around the tombstones and try to imagine what the people's lives might have been like. I have been contributing tombstone pictures to this site to help fellow genealogists that are a distance away that can't visit their relative's gravesite in person.

My family has been a big assistance to me in my project for this website. My son, Trenton, my daughter, Alena, and my husband, Terry, have helped me take tombstone photos. So a big "THANKS" goes out to all three of them!!

Quote from Findagrave: "The goal is not to "own" every memorial of those to whom you are related. THE ULTIMATE GOAL SHOULD BE TO HAVE MEANINGFUL, ACCURATE MEMORIALS THAT HONOR THOSE WHO HAVE PASSED AWAY, REGARDLESS OF WHO CREATED THE MEMORIAL OR WHO MAINTAINS IT." Please keep this in mind when you request a transfer as it takes a lot of time and money to do research to add memorials to this site. I love working on this site, but I have run into some problems just recently.

I DO WELCOME ADDITIONS, CORRECTIONS AND FAMILY LINKS. The more information the better!! I usually get the updates done within 1 or 2 days.

Margaret Jett
Hi, I noticed on the FindAGrave memorial page for Margaret Jett that she was your husband's relative. I am researching this family for someone and I have seen quite a few trees with James Atwood and Margaret Jett Atwood's children listed. I am curious if you know how this list of children was compiled or proven. Has there been a will or Bible record that I haven't located? I appreciate your help in this matter and thanks for your time!
.......Blessings, Lynda Brown

Thanks for catching my mistake, Lesa. I try not to make them, but occasionally I do.

Benjamin Crow
Hi Lesa,

Was wondering if you can email me a copy of the original image of the grave marker for Benjamin Crow, Find A Grave Memorial# 27743356, as the image is so dark on the memorial that I cannot read it.

Benjamin Crow is my 6th great grandfather.

Thank you,
