I enjoy genealogy, history, and lineage societies. I am in school full time, but when I get a chance I traipse cemeteries. I tend to gravitate towards military headstones, freemason headstones, headstones for children/infants, and people born prior to 1930. At the time I joined Find-A-Grave, I worked full time and took headstone photographs on my lunch hour.
I am HAPPY to transfer a memorial if I have made one for someone related to you! I love it when people find a member of their family or one of their ancestors. Please leave me a message with the person's name and memorial number. The only reason I would not transfer a memorial is if the deceased is one of my lateral or collateral ancestors, in which case I'll let you know.
PLEASE NOTE: In trying to take photographs of graves, I often have very little information except for what is on the headstone or slab. I always search for the person before adding the page (usually with as little information as possible to get as wide a variety as hits as I can), but sometimes variations on surnames don't come up. If I have created a duplicate memorial, please let me know! It is NOT my intention to create duplicate memorials and I will be glad to delete my memorial if the deceased already has a page. If you have additional information for any memorial I have created, please let me know and I will be happy to add it.
William Lee Ellis Hi, You added a photo to the memorial that I made for William Lee Ellis in Rose Hill Cemetery. Memorial # 45690532
Birth: Nov. 14, 1842 South Carolina, USA Death: May 27, 1902, USA [Edit Dates]
[Edit Bio] Family links: [Edit] Spouse: Mary Gazaline Lamar Ellis (1844 - 1922)*
I really appreciate you adding it. But it doesn't match the dates for my William Lee Ellis. Your photo has 1870 - 1957. I see that there is another memorial with these dates for a William Lee Ellis. Would you please switch your photo to that memorial? Again, thank you for taking photos and sharing.
RE: Lewis & Margaret Groce Thank you so very much, Sherrie. I can't wait to view Lewis's tombstone. I have walked through many a cemetery looking for my ancestors. I think it is wonderful that you take the time to do this for others!! Have the rest of a wonderful summer.

George Edward Ricks Thank you so much for taking and adding the photos for George. Please know that your time and efforts in finding his grave, then photographing, and then posting, are very appreciated. The photos are very clear.
RE: Andrews Cemetery Thanks Sherrie for the response. Yes the cemetery has been neglected for a while, only getting a good clean-up only on occasion for a long time but not on a schedule. Twice a year is not enough to keep it looking good during the summer months. There are a number of unmarked graves there including some related to me but we don't know how id who is who and where except for sinks in the ground. There used to be stones that marked each location but those are gone now.
As far as transferring your information to me, please let me get more familiar with FIND A GRAVE before doing that as I am a new member and don't want to make a mistake that could jeopardize the history you have.
