Bio and Links
Bio Photo **PLEASE Note**
If you are requesting an edit or a transfer and I am not related, I will gladly do so, however, you must go to the memorial page and click on suggest/edit and request from there. I cannot hunt down the memorial and then hunt down your member number. I have had 2 requests that I cannot fulfill, since the person has their messages disabled and did not give me the wanted memorial numbers.
You have my permission to copy ANY of my photos for your genealogical and personal use.
I totally enjoy sharing :)
***Why Find-A-Grave***
I do this mainly for genealogy purposes and to dedicate memorials to the ones who have been lost. The information is of PUBLIC record, often found in newspapers, court reords or cemetery records or first hand knowledge from generation family members. This information and memorial will be put in by someone eventually, if not by me. If I have listed a family member of yours and is not related to me and you wish a transfer, please request the transfer by clicking the edit/suggestion button to the right of the memorial. I will transfer the memorial to you and if you wish removal, then you, yourself, may go through the removal process, as it has become difficult to remove them, per Find-A-Grave's new system. Even when a duplicate is made, the removal of the duplication now has to have a reason for it and get an approval before it will be automatically removed by the service. I apologize for the inconvenience this causes, but I am not the one who makes the rules & have no control over the process.****

I am Karen and I have, so far, traced my heritage to the year 1029, Flamsted, England, to my 26th great grandfather, Ralph De Toni and Isabel Montford.
I am a grandmother of 15, married for 33 years to my best friend. We both enjoy genealogy.

Alice Sentman
Alice is my husband's 3rd great-aunt. Her father is my husband's 3rd great-grandfather. I took a closer look at her stone and the year of death could easily be a 6 rather than an 8, so I changed it.

Greenberry Garrett
If he is your cousin,then you are my great great grandmother's cousin. His sister Mary is my GGgrand. She married a Maples and had one daughter Mary James Maples. Who Greenberry took on guardianship until she married at 16 to John Goodman Nickerson in Summerfield Dallas Co Alabama. I know very little of Mary Gwyn Garrett. I do know her Garrett line back to England. I am stuck on the Gwyn line in PA. But her info is sketchy. Unknown birth date, marriage ?, Mr Maples. Any ideas would be great.Bradley Sue Howell #46979664 Dallas,Texas

Charles I Kennedy
Hi Karen! As far as I can remember and looking at my photographs, Charles was in the same area as the other Kennedys. So, it is a good chance this one belongs to you.

Wrong Parent
The father listed on Allen Candler Reed - Memorial # 17994715 is incorrect. You can tell because the lister father's name is different and the dates don't make since.

His father is Perino Griffith Reed - he is also buried in that same cemetary in Georgia - Poplar Springs Baptist Church.

Allen Candler Reed is my great-grandfather and Perino is my great-great grandfather. I would change this but it says I have to contact you to make the change. Please correct this information.

Thank you,
Misty Reed Sposato

re: # 140993559 Merle KINZEY -d 1971
In reading old newspapers for my own families, came upon Merle's obit, w/a WELSH surname within... have added to memorial# 140993559 -- if part of your family (KINZEYs), I'll gladly transfer
