Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born and raised in the Wesley Chapel Community. My father, TommieJohnson is buried in the Wesley Chapel Cemetery. I still miss him. I would like to thank everyone who has left a flower on his memorial. He was a wonderful man. My greatgrandmother Anne Lightfoot,is buried in Widnes, England. She passed away not long after my Mother came to Texas.

I am also the ggggrandaughter of Captain Samuel Harrison Bowen, and also James Jennings. Who both served our Country when the Tea Party first sprang into action. I am a member of The Houston County Historical Commission located in the Courthouse Annex in Crockett.

I believe very strongly in cemetery preservation. Cemeteries in most cases are the only history of those that came before us. Like rare books in a library once it's lost it's lost forever.My only intention is to create a HISTORICAL RECORDING of those who are "Gone, but not Forgotten" before their tombstones are lost forever. This is copied from a fellow graver: "Get out and photograph memorials while they are still readable. This site is primarily for GRAVE photos not genealogy, preserve those memories that are quickly fading."

For those who wonder about such things, when the number of memorials managed is higher than the number of memorials created, this is due to a few members who decided to transfer their memorials to multiple Findagrave contributors .... . and I am honored to be one of the contributors trusted to look after some of those memorials.

How do I clean a headstone or grave marker?
Unless you are related to the interred on the headstone in question, DO NOT do anything to the headstone.

Please do not post death certificates on the memorials that I manage. I don't feel that it is in good taste and you will be asked to remove them.

FROM THE FAQS: If you want to add from an obituary: Newspapers represent a very good source of information as a public record. What we ask is that those who index and memorialize the deceased from newspapers and other 3rd party accounts do so with full respect of copyright, refrain from adding information about living people, and respond generously to the family of the deceased.

I am happy to share ANYTHING that I post. I have no crazy rules, My pictures are your pictures. Feel free to beg, borrow, steal with no intent to return. I take pictures of headstones out of kindness ... not for my ego or for the "numbers."

Be kind to one another because - One day we will all be, 'just a name' etched in stone. "Nothing is ended until it is Forgotten."

This is the day the Lord hath made. I will rejoice and be glad in it! (and not spend the whole day working on Findagrave!)

RE: Mack Roberts Sr
That's him! Thanks a lot. I was searching on Mack and M. C. and there were so many, I gave up. Please add him there and I will take care of the rest. Charles B. Tobler

Thank you so much for posting a picture of George Washington Hallmark and his wife Jane Duckworth. They are my fourth great-grandparents. My mother is elderly and will be thrilled to see a picture of them. Your generosity is truly appreciated.

RE: Transfer Request
Hi, Carol,

I can't seem to get my mother's memorial transferred to my care.
Can you help me?

I've requested that they make the transfer, but no one has responded, and I don't know why.

Can you make any suggestions?

Thank you for your help.

I have transferred your grandmother to you. You can correct the memorial to please you.

sincerely, Bea Bennett

RE: On vacation
Ok problem. I know that feeling. Sometimes these smart phones aren't as convenient or as smart as we would like them to be. :)
