Bio and Links
Bio Photo I first discovered Find A Grave around 2001 by accident when I was trying to find the cemetery where Louisa May Alcott is buried, and Iíve been hooked ever since. Iíve been a graveyard explorer since I was little and used to spend a lot of time at a graveyard near where we live. I have also been a huge history buff most of my life, I blame my Mom, and would love to one day work in a historical field.


I had decided before I signed up that I would do out of guideline transfers. This idea was cemented after receiving out of guideline transfers from so many generous people. The only memorials that Iím sticky about are memorials for family and people I have known.


I really like Find A Graveís new way of sending edits to people, it makes things simpler. My only issue with it is that you donít get an email when you get sent an edit. So, if you send me an edit this way and want it made quickly, or itís been a while, then leave me a message so I will get an email notice. Things sometimes come up, and Iím unable to come on here for a while, and I donít know that I have edits.


You are free to use my pictures; I just ask that you donít use them on Ancestry. I donít care for Ancestryís picture policy, and donít like that you have to pay to see your own pictures. I would like my pictures to be free for anyone to see.

A Family Mystery

One family mystery that we have is that of my 3rd great-grandmaís nephew, Cash Sutton. The only picture we have of him says on the back that he disappeared in 1926 and was never heard from again. I have tried looking for him many times and have only found two census records he was in. If anyone knows anything more please leave me a message or send me an edit for his memorial. Link

Names That Iím Researching Are . . .

Erwin, Sewell, Collom, Hawkins, Callaway, Van Deventer, Hesler, Minnick, Ludlow, Boord, Allen, Schoonover, Bramblett, Arnold and several others.

RE: Krijger
Just trying to help. I'm sure your biography will be a beautiful tribute to this hero. I see another contributor left a message for me on your page accidently. If you want to delete it from your page, log in and in the right corner of the message, click on the x and it will delete it.

Take Care,

Honoring Their Lives
Hi Denise, I just wanted to tell how thankful I am to learn that you had sponsored the memorial for Officer Cottrell. His story touched me deeply as a fierce defender of our men and women in uniform who face danger each and every day on the job. Warmly, Helen Murphy

How to create Bold text:
To create bold text in your Find A Grave memorials or on your home page you need to first type < and next TYPE the letter b with no space and then type > NEXT TYPE THE TEXT THAT YOU WANT IN BOLD PRINT and at the end of what is to be in bold TYPE < no space then / then b then > with no spaces in between them.

How to create Italics text:
You can also do the same thing with italics by switching out the b and replace with i (for italics) using the same procedure.

Or you can do both bold & italics by adding both the corresponding HTML codes one following the other with no space.

Michael Wright Article
The article you sent me was a wonderful tribute. Unfortunately, it was clearly marked as copyrighted material without republication rights and so cannot, according to Find A Grave guidelines, be added to Michael's biographical information.

Sorry. Linda
