Bio and Links
I joined "Find a Grave" to originally create a memorial and request a photo of the grave area for my father-in-law's dad. It was requested in the hopes of seeing a grave & headstone in Colorado for someone in Alabama, who would probably never be able to travel there. To our delight and answered prayer, someone did deliver within about a week.

Since then my wife & I have purposed to return the favor of those who request photos in the area we live in and travel to. We have also been able to create the many memorials for our loved ones and ancestors who have went before us. It is always a joy to connect with those who share some of the same linage and DNA. We believe that "Find a Grave" has been an asset & help in adding to the stories, photos and genealogy for our family tree & branches.

So just a advance "shout out" and big "thank you" to all of you who post & participate in this wonderful website.

Jack and Lucy Bates - Photos
Wanted to thank you for your time and the photos of the stone for Jack and Lucy. Lucy Byrd Bates was a 1st cousin. The chances are slim that we would be able to get to Alabama anytime in the foreseeable future so the photos of the grave site mean a lot. Again, thanks.

Wayne Byrd.

Thank you for photographing Clarence and Ocie's markers. They were my Great Uncle and Aunt. This will help me complete the data for my grandfather's siblings. I appreciate your efforts, as I am a photo contributor, as well.

RE: L. Gonce Photo Request
Thank you so much, Phil. I will have to make another trip to Stevenson City Cemetery and see if I can find him. I don't remember seeing the obit when I made the photo request but I am sure it was there and I just did not read it carefully. I will definitely follow up with Wanda Bradford once I do a little investigation. I have deleted my photo request. I appreciate your help.
