|Bio and Links|
I retired as an elementary school principal in 2000. As a person that sleeps only 4 hours a night that leaves 20 hours to fill. Sitting home is not an option. Now, I drive a school bus 5 hours a day and visit cemeteries every chance I get. I have never been to a cemetery that charged admission and seldom is there a crowd. My wife, Sandra, is of a like mind so it works well. We both enjoy the hunt and the thrill that comes with each discovery. Let us know if we can help. If you have additional information on one of my post or you are a relative and want ownership, I will gladly transfer it to you. Just ask. Oh! By the way just call me Doc!|
NOTE: Many times the family plot has names different from those on the headstone. I always attempt to provide a reference point for markers. Hope this is not confusing.
Two quotes worth remembering:
"Tread softly, dreams are buried here." Unknown
"If you wonder about your 'roots' you have two parents, four grandparents eight great-grandparents and 16 great-great-grandparents, and by the time you go back 10 generations 300 years or so- you had 1,024 people from whom you are directly descended. --Mady Castro

|Gina Townley Swinburn||RE: Mauney|
You were very kind to transfer. I'll KEEP trying to make us family :)
|Gina Townley Swinburn||RE: Chrisitan Mauney|
I would be honored to have him. Actually I was hoping you might be related... I'm always looking for "new", personable and friendly sorts to add to my tree :)
So, if we're not related, I would welcome the transfer.
|mattbly01||Pawnee Calaway Owen Rogers death location|
Pawnee died in Jacksonville, Duval, Florida. Here are 2 index citations. Please note that her name is mispelled on both of them.
Paunee Owen Rogers. "Florida, Deaths, 1877-1939," index, FamilySearch.
"Florida Death Index 1877-1998." ancestry.com
Has the same date but spells her name:
Mrs. Paunce Owen Rogers.
THis information has also been given to me orally by a grandson of hers.
She is buried in Thomas cemetery.
Thanks for all your work! I think this will help a lot of people.
|Luella Brown||RE: Louise Lightfoot|

|Anita Justice-Wages||Thank you|
Thank you Richard for linking WC Cooper with wife Cynthia Conley Cooper. I appreciate it.
|Luella Brown||RE: Louise Lightfoot|
Thank you Mr. Jordan,
That's an honor , is there anything special I need to do?, Richard LIGHTFOOT was her husband . Tell me are there anymore LIGHTFOOT's buried there?
Hello, i was surprised to see a picture of my Gr-Grandmother Louise Lightfoot, on her tombstone in Crawfordville Ga. At the Battery Bapt.Church.
being she was African American i didn't know they would do that. i was wondering how it was possible.?.That must've cost some money.
|T.A.S.||James Wesley Brown|
Richard, the photos you posted on James Wesley Brown's memorial (85274849), actually should be posted on James Woody Brown's memorial (132601283). Both gentlemen are in Gaston Memorial Park with similar names. Could you correct this? Thanks!

|Barbara Ann Shirley Rogerson||RE: Nellie Trivett|
LOL I am always happy to help where I can, Doc.
I think you have given me permission in the past to use your headstone photos, but could not nail down which one(s). I have found several more I would like to use in my tree on Ancestry. If you give me permission, I will give you credit for them. (I'll make a note this time so I won't have to bother you next time I find one).
Thank you very much for making such great contributions to Find A Grave!
