|Bio and Links|
I am researching my ancestors with surnames Davidson, Hardin, Mabary, Watson, Farnsworth, McBurney, Prine, Hamilton, Adams, Hines, Belieu, Chamberlain, and of course, many many more. I live in Seattle, WA.|
I am happy to do research in my area, and to take photos of graves that are near me or near where I will be travelling. It's the least I can do, since I'll be requesting the same of others. Feel free to contact me for whatever reason.

|Pat Ault||RE: Adams and Hines|
WOW! I got another message and am finally beginning to really read the messages. I apologize profusely for taking 6 years to transfer ownership of the gravesite to you. We own the land adjacent-- the only access to the cemetery. When we bought in 2000, only 3 graves were visible. Over the 9 years we lived there, we found many more, some merely stones set upright; we wondered if some of those were early graves or perhaps slave graves. We loved the tranquility of the cemetery. I found it had been written up in "Graves of Warren County" and was described decades before as very remote and in disrepair-- will probably disappear within 5-10 years. We worked steadily to restore the sites and individual graves and researched the stories behind the people-- finally we tracked them to Moses Taylor/ Elizabeth Prevatte Taylor and their emigration from North Carolina to Kentucky in 1796. The Wileys, Adamses, Hines, Daughertys, etc., were in their entourage/ had lived nearby in Craven County, NC.
I am so pleased to know you are family. I look forward to seeing what you post. We still own the property, plan to sell this year perhaps but when we go back in the spring we will definitely check on the cemetery and tell you if conditions have changed markedly. The house has been rented for 5 years and I doubt the tenants have done any upkeep. If you want or need any more information, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Thanks for the link to their song. It makes me fell like I know them a little better. That is more than I expect in return for taking a picture. Let me know if I can take any more for you in the LA area.

|RAJ||RE: Dorothy Gomez Bragino|
Glad to do it. I had to go back twice because the name was different. I looked right at it the first time, then had to check with the office to see if it was the correct location. Very odd because their records show her name was Bragino. Do you know if there is any film available of her performances?

My interest in this gentleman was through the Labbee family who married into the Morford line.
|bill wealot||RE: Graham Memorial|
I think its a combination of being protected from acid rain by overhanging trees and when it fell over enough debris covered it to protect it. I'm hopeing the other Grahams are in the same area as its very overgrown in there. I actually walked by the cemetery the first time without seeing it because of all the foliage. If yu ver get to this area and want to go out there let me know. Bill

I posted a picture of the Graham memorial you added - # 90988395. I also added one of another one in that family line - still looking for the other memorials as it's badly overgrown in there. Bill
I'm working on my husband's Sparks line so not closely related. His 2 great grandmother was a Sparks and I'm following her youngest brother's family and descendants right now. Leona's grandmother was a Sparks. I'm glad you could fix the problem. Many thanks, Roberta
I requested a gravestone picture for Frank Winandy (76556048)and Leona May Winandy buried at Enumclaw Cemetery. The cemetery says they have no record of them. Could you help with this problem in anyway? Roberta Everett
You are very welcome, Dave. It was a pleasure working on the Flake memorials. I was wondering if you might take over their care, so that they would be with family?
