Bio and Links
Bio Photo I love visiting cemeteries. I know it sounds a bit morbid, but there is a peace there that is hard to find elsewhere. I love photography and the thrill of finding a bit of information about a long lost relative--that is why I have added (and will continue to add) cemetery photos.

I am related (in some way, sometimes remote) to many of the decedents I have submitted, and would love to provide whatever information I have to those interested. Also, I would be more than happy to go to any local cemetery to find information and take photos for anyone interested.

I WILL NOT transfer my relatives' graves - only non-relations. I would, however, be more than willing to add information and link graves to other relatives, if I'm missing something. When I entered many of the graves, it was not possible to link them - now I'm trying to catch up.

Please do not notify me that there is a duplicate of one of my graves unless mine is not the original. Thanks!

Thank you for making the requested edits. Other memorial holders did the same. Two unsolicited transfers to me are passed to you for your care.

I sent you a personal email from the public library in Oct, since I do not have a home computer at this time. I have not recieved a reply, so thought I would try this forum.

Mel Hughes was my biological father & I saw the other Hughes graves you photographed that included my great uncle, Charles Plau. I could not find anything for my Granmother, Hattie Plau Hughes. I remember someone notifying my other Grandmother when she died in Jan 1976 & that she had been in a nursing home & had a leg amputated.
I can find no record of her burial & I am feeling very sad that she may have not had anyone there to give her a proper burial.

Are you related to me? I would apprciate any information you could share with me. I have no close family left.

Thank you,
Pat Hughes

Do you mind If I would use a few on my own family tree on I always give credit to the photographer. Please let me know , but if I dont hear from you I will assume that its okay. Thanks in advance.

Hello Melanie:
I have sent several edit requests to you regarding the Law family buried in Columbia...
to no avail, am I doing something wrong in these requests that you have not replied. Am trying here in case you are not getting them thru the edit button. If this works and you are willing I can send info here, a transfer would be welcome but you said don't ask.
Kenneth's number is 8845314.
Will be home later to get response from you, can resend as soon as tonight if you wish.
