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.

Louise Moore, Memorial# 93992230
Tks, Cynthia, for all your post. Louise's husband, Clifford Moore, with whom she share the headstone, is not listed in Find-A-Grave. Can you add him and his information? He was well known and respected surveyor and civil engineer. Clark

William Norwood Dye Cemetery
Cynthia, Thank you for the message that you added the gravesites of William Norwood Dye, Sr. and Mary Lafern Savage Dye. Their daughter Billie Dorene Dye Holland is also buried there. She was cremated and we buried her over her mother's heart. There is no marker for Billie Dorene Dye Holland, so adding her name on findagrave would help provide a record for her. Billie Dorene Dye Holland was born April, 1938 in Oklahoma and died 2008 in California. She was married to Larry Holland in California. Billie grew up in Salem, Illinois. She had no children. She was my step-sister and we grew up in the same house.

William and Mary laFern also had two sons, Roy Herbert Dye and Garry Lee Dye.

Thank you for your good work. Leona Sauser

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.

J. T.-Shaw
