Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am always happy to transfer a memorial to a family member closer in relationship than I am. Just let me know which ones, using the edit tab in the upper right and then under "suggest a correction" ask for the transfer of the memorial and include how you are related.

I have been doing genealogy for 45 years and have published family history books for my parents, my husband's parents, my daughter-in-law's family and my son-in-law's family. I am a retired librarian and have traveled with my husband as we volunteered to help build Habitat for Humanity homes all over the country. We have visited all of the cemeteries of known direct ancestors for all our families; I have loved adding them all to this wonderful website.

My genealogy is downloaded to the World Connect Projects link at Rootsweb.com. I have 7 gedcom databases, accessed by typing in the database name in the "jump to specific database" box or by searching by name and looking for my entry with one of the database names below:
gravleesellers, druinlewis, macyblair, barchliger, lewisadams, rudisilltrigg or fieldmasser.

RE: Liberty Hall Cem
I wanted to update you and let you know I found Liberty Hall Cemetery or what is left of it. I cannot go in there until cold winter because it is so un-kept. It is located in woods behind a building and easily accessible but very un-kept. It made my heart sad to see such a mess and that no one cared enough for it to take care of it. However, I plan to rectify that if I can. I am going to check with a local Boy Scout Troop and see if maybe they would be willing to help me for a community project this fall or winter to go out and clean that up providing I can find out who's property this is located on and get permission. I did see a few of the stones and they are all pretty dilapidated. I did see one name and a bit of a message saying "my darling Sophie". That is all I could read. I will see what I can find later on this fall.

Diane -- Thank you for taking the headstones of my parents, Patricia Lee and Legrand Hughes Radley. Now that they are gone, I don't know if I would ever get back to Greenwood. Much appreciated having these. Elizabeth Radley, NYC

The Fryers in Clayton City Cemetery
Diane,
I am Mary Lou Peake. You recently fulfilled photo requests for me of my ancestors in Clayton City Cemetery. You found and took pictures of Sarah C. Fryer and Annie Laura Grubbs Fryer. I also was thrilled to have the new picture of Charles and Annie Laura's grave markers lying side by side. Thank you so much for taking these pictures for me. I have been waiting for over a year to have this request granted. Now all my little family in this cemetery is accounted for and has pictures listed for them. Since I live in Mobile, Clayton is not very close to me, and I really appreciate your help and service.
You have blessed me!!

Diane,

Thank you so much for the perfect photos of the headstone for Frank. I really appreciate the information. I didn't have his date of birth until I was able to get the information from his headstone.

Thank you again,

Danna

One thank you is more than enough. I love your photo at the graveyard. Finding graves can be both easy and difficult but I love doing it.

Thank you so very much for the photos!!!

I had forgotten that I had requested them. This is like Christmas to me. Now I have a little more information for our family tree. The date of death matches old notes that I have and the birth date is new information!

Thank you so very much! Great service!
