Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have always been facinated by cemeteries. I grew up across the street from a large cemetery in Hot Springs, Arkansas and would spend my summer afternoons wondering through the graves admiring the unique headstones. This love has followed me to adulthood as I travel with my job and prefer to pack a lunch and find a lovely cemetery to eat at and wander through than to eat in a restaurant. I just recently found Find A Grave when I began doing genealogy research. I was so touched to see that someone had been sweet and taken a photo of my baby girl's headstone and realized what a wonderful way to be productive when traveling Arkansas and enjoying my lunches and cemeteries.

I give my permission for family members to use the pictures of headstones that I have taken. I keep all of my pictures and will be happy to provide a high resolution picture through email.

RE: Ruth Irene Kelly Mason
Yes, second cousin.
My mother was her first cousin.
My grandmother, Rosa Lee Dodson Newcomb was the daughter of Clayborn & Virginia Dodson. They also had a daughter named Virginia and one named Alice. My mother was named Virginia Alice after her grandmother Dodson and her two aunts!! A lot of Virginia's in that family!! Well, Aunt Virginia wound up with the nickname "Jennie" and my mother with the nickname "Virgie" which she hated all her life!! I never got to meet your great-grandmother, Jennie. She died so early, but your great-grandfather, my great-uncle Tony was such a delight. I remember him and my grandpa James Arthur Newcomb talking Sunday afternoons away on the back porch of grandpa's house about old-times on the farm. I wish we could have somehow gotten those conversations down on paper or some medium so that we could all enjoy them the way we all did back then.

Nice hearing from you.
Write again,

Dear Freida Karen,

While working an unconnected Dellinger branch in Virginia, I came across John & Drisilla and when I read the updated Contributor bio of JMB.

She has post notification that should anyone be interested in any Transfers, they should use the Edit/Correction system to request same. As they are 2nd cousins 5x removed of yours, I thought you may be interested in taking over the care of their memorials. :-)

Always, in F-A-G brother/sisterhood,

This appears to be a duplicate, just with the incorrect spelling. Please correct. Thanks

Clement Herman Henry Taphorn
Clement Herman Henry Taphorn is my Great-Great Grandfather. I would love to exchange any info on him and his family. To be truthful, I have very little info on the Taphorns. Ernest Taphorn is my Great Grandfather. Clemons Henry is my Grandfather and his daughter, Evelyn Louise Taphorn is my mother. Thank you in advance. Cissy Flew Nichols

I was wondering if you could go to Mount Olive Cemetery in Bauxite and photograph the headstone of my Mom and post it to find a grave... It is located next to the graves of Orbery &Lois Childress large grey marker with Thompson on the back and on the front it has daisies on it.

I think you have Frank Gwisdalla posted in the wrong cemetery. He is at the St. Mary's Catholic Church Cemetery in Parisville, Huron Co., Michigan Please check this out (read the obit that you have posted) and change to the correct cemetery. Thank you
