Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a genealogy junkie! I am not as "owner" of graves, nor am I a "Collector" of names. I am a retired lady who has the time to comb records and record names that are not yet on this site. Recently, I had the joy of adding 2 small cemeteries to Findagrave. Something pulled at my heart as I listed babies, families and individuals that I could find NOTHING about. How I hope someone finds their loved ones because of the few hours I spent typing.

I discovered Find A Grave when I was doing a web search looking for information my great great grandfather. Imagine my delight when I found his grave listed by a kind gentleman who was not even related. I decided then, if I visited a cemetery, I would write every grave down, just in case someone else was looking for their relative. I did not ask for a transfer of that grave, I just thanked him for giving of his time to list my families graves.

I have had the joy of meeting many wonderful people who use this site.

TRANSFERS: I will transfer managements of graves UNLESS I AM DIRECTLY RELATED. Please send your request by edit and I will check my family tree. If your requested name is not in my tree, I will gladly transfer it. If it is there, I will explain my relationship to that person and why I do not wish to transfer. Please understand my wish to keep my family grave listings. I am sure that if you had taken the time to walk the cemeteries, search the records and list the names, you would feel the same.

I appreciate all the kind additional information and corrections. (Sometimes we all suffer from fat-finger syndrome and miss the right key!) Forgive me if I have made an error on your loved ones grave. Let me know and I WILL CORRECT IT.

The main names I am researching in my family: Knowles-Sandlin, Patterson - Brown, Gornto-Allen, Delaney-Roebuck, Entrekin- Martin, Beall-Watts and Holcombe -Watson.

And my husband's family, Miner-Hughes, Nail-Bibb, Freeman-Gantt and Rimel- Headrick.

RE: Miles J. /Milus J Robinson
These are the times I'm so glad my mother gave me a normal, easy to spell name. Too bad growing up, nobody could spell Nail. LOL.

RE: 64296800
The caption on the photo of the marker reads that the marker is shared with Angus Crumly. Apparently, Angus is a brother based on the siblings listed on their memorials.

According to the 1920 census, Jim Crumly lives in the house of his father (HOH), Charles W. Jim is an engineer at a powerhouse and is shown as single.

In the 1930 census, just four years before his death, James Crumley is HOH, single and an operator at a powerhouse.

I would doubt that he ever married and I found no marriage record for him at familysearch or ancestry.

Thanks! I do not usually do these, but this was short and sweet.

RE: Miles J. /Milus J Robinson
His grandson's military record and ss death index show Milas, so I guess it's anyone's guess.

Auto correct.
That should say "grandsons." My iPad thinks every plural is actually possessive and helps me bu changing it. :)

RE: Miles J. /Milus J Robinson
I found both Miles and Milas, but the only thing I saw with Milus was a census that also butchered his wife's name badly. I'll keep looking. One of his grandson's was named after him, so I'll see how his things are listed, too.

Thanks so much for your message, and for giving me a little information on how Find a Grave works. I'm sure it's going to be "trial and error" for me until I figure out what I'm doing. Obviously, with your experience you're probably an expert, so I may need to "message" you from time to time to ask for your help.

You're obviously doing a great job with this website, and I do appreciate what you've done with the Dail family already! Thanks again. Bonnie Peedin Burch
