Bio and Links
Bio Photo When I was a kid, my grandparents would take me with them to visit the cemeteries where relatives were buried. They would stand by a stone and talk about the person buried there. I wish I could remember those stories. This is a way to record stories I am now told. There is a story under every stone and cemeteries full of untold stories. I hope this will give people a chance to record a memory before it is forgotten, then lost.
Recently, my husband got a Harley and we have combined our two interests. We ride the bike to various cemeteries that folks request photos from and have fun reading the old names and hunting for the requested gravesite. Sometimes just finding the cemetary is quite the challenge!
I do research on the following family lines: Lillpop, Askren, Green, Bell in Indiana. In Mississippi I follow the lines of Taylor, Ferguson, Scott and Holden.
"Do not, my Brothers and Sisters, think of the cemetery with tears, nor meditate upon the coffin and the shroud with gloomy thoughts. You only sojourn there for a little season, and to you it will not appear a moment; your body will sleep, and if men sleep all through a long night it only seems an hour to them, a very short moment. The sleeping time is forgotten, and to your sleeping body it will seem no time at all—while to your glorified soul it will not seem long because you will be so full of joy that a whole eternity of that joy would not be too long!" Charles Spurgen

Greenleaf Cemetary
Patty, could you possibly give me directions to the Greenleaf Cemetary near Coldwater, MS. Or give me an idea of how to find it. Thanks

Hobart Pate 33568353 and 8271646
I was doing research on My Aunt Romona Pate and noticed that Her Father is listed twice. Once by yourself #33568353 and once by CK (who is inactive) Memorial #8271646. Worse than that they are listed in different Cemeteries? This is just so you know.

You are very welcome. I think it is wonderful that you and your husband ride and explore cemeteries. My husband & I both own motorcycles and have combined our hobbies of riding and visiting cemeteries also. Maybe one day our paths will cross. Take Care :)
