Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired pediatric nurse. My husband and I travel often, but mostly on cruise ships. Some day I need to convince him we need to travel on land. We both have so many historical figures in our family tree. I would love to see the areas of our country where it all began.
The headstone in the picture is where my 4th great grandfather John Curtis lies. On July 22, 2015 the Town of Milton organized a Revolutionary War Veteran's Ceremony for him. I will be eternally grateful for the love and care they gave to my grandfather. He had not been recognized as a soldier until November 2014 when I was excepted into the Daughters of the American Revolution.
I am always glad to transfer a memorial I have created to a family member or even to some who cares. I can't do justice to someone I do not know, happily give to those who can. Just remember to give me your FAG# ;-)
Many of the memorials created are taken directly from the lists created by Ancestry or Historical Societies. I have thousands more to add.

Just wanted to ask you to make a correction for Robert Borders. He was born in Glasgow, Kentucky and not Glasgow, Scotland. His father has passed away this week here in Glasgow. Thank you. Marilyn Thomas

Lucinda Kersey Chiles Memorial

I declined your edit for the parents of Lucinda Kersey Chiles. My research shows she was the daughter of Thomas Kersey, native of Ireland who died in Tennessee. This is according to a bio of her son Roland Chiles.

You can see what I have on her at:

RE: Doris Smith Farwig
Dear Debbie,
Really sweet of you to offer, but they are a couple of branches away from my tree.
I'm just an information geek and love to pass it along when I can. Maybe it will help someone in their search as I've been helped.
Thanks for making my day and for all you do on findagrave. Best Wishes--Lily

Doris Smith Farwig
Dear Debbie,
I just sent an edit to add the father of Doris (Smith) Farwig. It will seem odd as the poor man was named Dora M. Smith. His gravestone says "father" above his name and I have researched him.
Her mother was Bessie May (Gates) Smith. I cannot find her. Anyway, thanks for the attention to the edits.

Clarence Jones
Sorry I got that last message backwards. I should have said: Thanks for creating the memorial for Clarence Jones Find A Grave Memorial# 151952644. He was married to my great Aunt Essie Jones who is buried next to him I believe. Can you please edit his info to include her as his wife? She is Find A Grave Memorial# 116473885. Thanks!
