Bio and Links
Bio Photo My interest in cemeteries stems from my drive to find out all I can about my ancestral background.

I will transfer memorials that are no relation to me upon request.

**Unfortunately, there will be duplicates in Greenlawn Cemetery of Hammond, Louisiana. There were only 200-300 memorials online for Greenlawn when I began this cemetery. I will delete my memorial if it is in fact the duplicate; I didn't bother looking for any names as I added memorials one at a time, taking more than a year or so.

Thank you Cynthia
I am assuming you took the picture of my brothers headstone and gave him flowers.

His name is Stephen Douglas Myer born May 1957

How can I get involved with "help with find a grave?"

Thank you, Monica

Sorry for the Kemp/LA work I caused you
Thanks for straightening out the kinship on the Margaret Shaw Kemp (93532204) memorial. I'm sorry I gave you bad info. the first time around...old and slow, I guess.

Hammond LA duplicate entries
Can you combine the info. for John D. Kemp on your #93532183 with that on the late J L. Crall's memorial for Kemp on "#48000208? Then, please either link your John Kemp memorial to his spouse Margaret (Shaw) Kemp (#93532204) and combine your info. on her with the info. by J L Crall on her family record at #48000104.

Thank you.
