|Bio and Links|
Ever since I was a small kid, I've always been interested in my ancestors. I'm sure I drove the older members of my family nuts by always asking who was married to whom and who their kids were.|
As an adult I've traced my lineage back four to seven generations and still enjoy working on filling in the blanks.
I also love to roam around in cemeteries and look for odd and different headstones. I have a scrapbook of photos of these stones that I started years ago and still add to it every chance I get.
My favorite is a stone that I found in a local cemetery in Bentonville, Arkansas... it's a man's headstone and carved by the monument company is this phrase, "I told you I was sick". I literally had to walk up to the stone and touch it to believe it was really there.
I first started using find-a-grave to look up famous people's gravestones, such as Bruce and Brandon Lee, those have to be two of my favorites, they are beautiful.
I finally, just in the last couple of weeks started working on adding information on the cemeteries where I have relatives buried. It's a great way to save and share information.
If you would like to either correct or add to a bio, or contribute any information regarding any memorial I have placed, please feel free to contact me. I welcome all information. Or I'll be more than happy to transfer any memorial page to friends or family. Please put "Find A Grave" in the subject field. Thank you!
If you have a minute please visit daddy and mommie's memorial pages. Joe W. Vaughn., Rhoda V. Vaughn.
and for my gramps, he was/is my special human. Will Vaughn.
...and for all of my FAG friends out there, I want to thank you for all the flowers left on my loved ones pages and all the sponsorships.
Only a member of this awesome family here on Find a Grave could know how much all of this is appreciated! :)
This is a link to some great pics of some of the military elite & medal of honor recipients buried in Arlington National Cemetery.
This link will take you to the official Arlington Cemetery site.
I also contribute to a site that focuses on just gravestone in Arkansas. There are so many older cemeteries and the stones are fast fading away. If you have pics of any stones from a cemetery in Arkansas feel free to enter the stone and or the cemetery. It's a relatively new site so everyone with Arkansas gravestones is welcome, the more the merrier! Here is the link.
Enjoy! Bev :)
I just added the dog that 'owned' me for a few blessed years, visit my beloved boy if you get a chance, Sandy Myers.
THE STONE SEEKER
Wandering among the stones I see
The stones so weathered and worn
‘Tis difficult to find the date
On which the babe was born
I stare at the stone and am struck with awe
At the life that I knew was gone
This was someone's child, a babe so sweet
With loved ones to carry on
So I take a photo for all to see
For the family that remains
An everlasting memory of
A child of God's domain
I brush the weeds back from the stone
And say a silent prayer
For the babes that had no chance to live
And for mothers everywhere
The dove calls out it's mourning song
Among the stones so still
Echoes of the woes, through time
The choirs of despair
The stone will someday perish
The flowers will be gone
But a photo now remains of this
Their memory lives on!
And so my friend, don't hesitate
To film the weathered stone
Those who live within your hearts
Are never truly gone

Thank you for the beautiful message you sent me. Yes, we are so blessed to have such amazing promises from our Lord. The wonder and the awe on Ronald's face and in his voice was truly amazing. A special blessing from the Lord.
Have a super great Christmas.

|Mom to angels Bo and Chris||Thank you so much!|
God bless you for sponsoring Lola's memorial. I am so sorry I have not thanked you before now. The hurt that was caused our family by her death can't be described! The only justice we will have is the day the story leaks, or the day that person leaves this world! Thank you for your kindness and for sponsoring her memorial! Love ya! MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU AND YOURS!

William Diffendal Dodson in Green Hill Cemetery in Danville, Virginia. One day I hope to be able to take or make a photo like the one you posted. Marvelous. Do you give lessons or have you taken classes?

Hi Beverly, I was recently in Green Hill Cemetery Danville, Va...doing what all of us here do...walking around taking photos. This young child's marker drew me to it due to the uniqueness of the carving. I took a couple of photos and was about to post one here on the memorial when I saw yours. Wow! I don't know how you did that...but...wow! What an awesome photo! As you can see on my profile, I have taken thousands of photos and posted them here on the site. Your photo of this young child's grave just leaves me speechless. Wonderful :)
