Bio and Links
Bio Photo **PLEASE Note**
If you are requesting an edit or a transfer and I am not related, I will gladly do so, however, you must go to the memorial page and click on suggest/edit and request from there. I cannot hunt down the memorial and then hunt down your member number. I have had 2 requests that I cannot fulfill, since the person has their messages disabled and did not give me the wanted memorial numbers.
**PHOTOS***
You have my permission to copy ANY of my photos for your genealogical and personal use.
I totally enjoy sharing :)
***Why Find-A-Grave***
I do this mainly for genealogy purposes and to dedicate memorials to the ones who have been lost. The information is of PUBLIC record, often found in newspapers, court reords or cemetery records or first hand knowledge from generation family members. This information and memorial will be put in by someone eventually, if not by me. If I have listed a family member of yours and is not related to me and you wish a transfer, please request the transfer by clicking the edit/suggestion button to the right of the memorial. I will transfer the memorial to you and if you wish removal, then you, yourself, may go through the removal process, as it has become difficult to remove them, per Find-A-Grave's new system. Even when a duplicate is made, the removal of the duplication now has to have a reason for it and get an approval before it will be automatically removed by the service. I apologize for the inconvenience this causes, but I am not the one who makes the rules & have no control over the process.****

Sandy
How can people who haven't seen me in 40 years say anything about me. And, Harolds family wasn't close. They probley saw me a dozen times growing up and I wasn't over 10 years old. think about it. And the grandkids around here don't even know Sandy, never heard of her. They are in complete agreement. Obviously you don't know about the family or how many of us are still living. and as for Sandy, I only said what was the truth. Her mother married my cousin.Sandy was already born when they married. Sandy had another dad. You are chasing the wrong family tree. you are a trouble maker. plain and simple. leave me alone

Karen, I did not say Sandy was ONLY a step grandchild. What I said was that she was not blood kin to the Rooks. This is not about Sandy. she knows she is not blood kin. Never the less that's not what its about. this is about vandaling and abusing centuries old tombstones. Ancestry now forbids it, but caring, loving kinfolk would never do what you did to the tombstones. Im thru with you, and don't make up any more stuff about my attitude.

Karen, I beg to differ with you as to you being blood kin. you are not kin, sorry. and as for what others say about my attitude,is blatently untrue. Look, I am an old woman and remember family members, have them all in my records. guess what, you're not there ! I have your first emails saying yes you chalked the graves but It did no harm. the chalk is still there. Ive also talked to others at other cemeteries who say you did the same thing there. Look, ancestry does not own the graves. Local officials DO have the right to stop vandalizing. and as for nasty, vicious emails yours sure was nice, wasn't it. You seem to have turned the subject to being about my attitude. you better believe I have an attitude when you destroy my grandparents and great grandparents tombstones. by the way, ive talked to all living grandchildren and they all agree.

Thomas Fling Obituary
Karen,
I just happened to find the Fling obituary when I was researching someone else. Since it is so often "iffy" to find info on someone you are researching, I always try to pass on information about someone else when I can, to help in others' research. I'm glad this obit was helpful to you.

RE: George W Rooks
Of course its the same picture you took. Understand, and read the writing under it. I wanted people to know I did not do the chalking, hence the message under my picture. and yes, that was originated in 2006, but your chalked pictures were added after that, and my ogiginal picture was changed from my name to "anonymous". Just to clarify things. and no matter the date, someone who is experienced with this would never chalk an old gravestone. There are more pictures on there that I didn't enter, my name is nowhere on it or claiming it. all with chalked pictures and your name on the pictures. This has nothing to do with Sandy, only with you.
