Bio and Links
Bio Photo If anyone has ties to anyone in my "family" cemetery, I would love to hear from you!!
I love researching my own family history as well as helping others research theirs.
My own family includes the names Stephens/Stevens, Ferrell, Wentz, Christenbury, House, Smith, Black, McCall, Ross, Richardson, and Donahue (through marriage)from Charlotte and the surrounding area. My grandmother, Charline Josephine Dumont Stephens, was from Leige, Belgium.

Posting grave photo to my memorials:
I appreciate it, but if there are already photos of the grave posted, please do not post your photo simply because you have it and you don't want to feel that you wasted your time taking it. I know the feeling, and I have had to delete many a picture for the same reason. I have noticed that some of my memorials have pictures that look exactly like mine posted by others. There is a limit of 5 photos per memorial without sponsorship, and I really would prefer to save that space for family members to post photos of their relatives.

Please, be nice:-)
My favorite contribution to this site is adding photos to existing memorials, so if I have created a duplicate, it was definitely not intentional. Just let me know and I will correct it, offering any photos and information to the original memorial.
Also, please make suggestions and corrections NICELY. Please do not make rude demands or send rude messages. If my memorials and photos are within FAG guidelines, I will likely ignore bully demands and opinions.

Unknown Cemetery...
Sorry-I do not link to relatives in "unknown" cemetery, as I do not believe this is truly "finding a grave". However, I am happy to add names of relatives to the bio. I also believe this causes alot of confusion when the grave of the person is found, and a memorial is created by someone else in the proper cemetery.
The person who created the original memorial in "unknown" cemetery edits the memorial to the proper cemetery,causing a duplicate, and then forces the creator of the first "legitimate" memorial to delete theirs. This is unfair.

Transferring memorials...
I am very happy to do it. It makes me happy when someone in my memorials is found by a family member.
I WILL NOT TRANSFER FAMILY. I do not mind at all if you ask, but please don't be angry if I decline.

**Please, when you can, take a minute to clean off grave markers covered in dirt or grass so that they are not buried forever:-)

Picture may be of interest to you
The picture beside this message is one of all Minnie Wentz Bradshaw and her husband Charlie R. Bradshaw's children. My dad, Ruchard Bradshaw, was the youngest and one still living.

Minnie Bradshaw & Sister Edith
Received your messages concerning Minnie W. Bradshaw, who was my grandmother, and Edith Eason her sister. I apologize for only getting back to you now. Lots going on. I had plans to add to these memorials as soon as I had time, especially grandmothers. I found Edith's memorial funeral card among grandmother's possessions. Thank you for your info and please send anything else anytime you want.

Photo Request
Re: Beatties Ford Memorial Gardens
I am new with Find a Grave, but my husband travels for work. I have the privilege to go with him, and have started visiting graves with requests for pics.
On July 6th I will be visiting this area for several days and would like to get these pictures for you.
I have noticed that Bonita Caldwell, president of garden. She said you need to call her to get location of marker and permission for me to take photo.

It looks like this may be her email? email is
Let me know, I would like to help.

Thank you!
For adding the picture of the stone on the Simpson grave sites! A pleasant surprise!
Added by Gerre on Jun 23, 2014 8:52 PM
Am wondering
if what appears to be a fresh grave is actually where the cemetery reseeded the area. I noticed the same thing on the Simpson graves..Possible maybe?
