|Bio and Links|
Generally interested in genealogy. I became instantly fascinated with this site once I saw relatives graves from 100+ years ago!|
I live in Bemidji, Minnesota, but I am from Richland, Washington. I am usually in the Tri-Cities, WA area one to two times a year.
I am more than willing to transfer memorials to relatives, according to F.A.G. policies, and even beyond F.A.G. policies. If you're a relative even ten generations removed, and I'm not a relative at all, then why not let you maintain it?!
Feel free to send me any memorial updates/additions/edits through the appropriate link on specific memorials. I don't always get to them right away. Have patience.
If you would like to request a photo of a stone for a memorial, please follow the F.A.G. guidelines about Photo Requests, at http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=listFaqs#55. If you want to use any photos I have taken, I hereby give permission but request that you credit me as photographer, using my first name and my Find A Grave profile URL.
My (close) family names are Hevel, Hampton, Guerrant/Guerin, Westgate, Travis, West, and Tenpenny.
Some further family names of mine (directly descended from all) are Kressin/Kresain, Heazle, Done, McCulley, Hill, VanHooser, Craft, Coon/Gohn, Strayer, Stockton, Graham, Gray, Hall, Beggs, Berger, Crantzdorf/Cransdorf, Derr/Dörr, Rodgers/Rodger/Rogie, Weidler/Widler, Davidson, Klein, Patton, Ryan, Wohlgemuth, Hoffstetter, Gutt, Reckner, Sachser, Schnewli, Clayton, Forgus, Harris, Epperson, Ireland, Morgan, Perrow/Perreau/Perrault/Perault, Thomson, Trabue/Trabuc, Renno/Regnault, Doughty, L'Orange, Vereul/Verrueil, Chibailhe, Prodon/Prodhomme, Whitehead, Witham, Andrailh/D'Andrailh, Mariette, Azam, De Marty, De Gascon, De Lambrail, Du Fay, Couillard, Hoag, Tevenin, Nepvue, Auber, Rousselin, Boucher/Bouchard/Le Boucher, Donnet, Verson, Duchesne, and possibly Robinson (connected with Witham).

U are very welcome....
Thank you Melanie for this photo. We have a lot of family names in common from the Virginia French immigrants. Peter is my fifth great grandfather.

Thanks for the Grave Marker photo for Maurice Ferden.
|Barbara Stott||Thomas Gerald McArthur|
Saw message on my E mail to delete my Find A Grave on him. No dups
allowed. So I deleted mine. Now I don'T see one at all. I didn't
know there was one. He's buried in Bejou City Cemetery, MN.
Someone said no grave headstone. Aren't Military supposed to
get on from the government?? Sorry about the dup. Tommy was
my favorite cousin, my father's sister's son. Thanks, no harm
intended. Barb McIntosh-Stott
|Gloria Jennings Lowrey||Update|
Wanted to let you know that I just received email notification from Find A Grave letting me know that someone had fulfilled a couple of my photo requests. Don't know why they had a temporary lapse in notifying us, but I'm sure glad that they are doing it again!
|Vera B Andrews||E Mail|
Could you send me an e mail so I can write
to you. Did you know Mary Frances died last month?
|Gloria Jennings Lowrey||Distant Cousins|
Hey Melanie. Yes, it does appear that you and my husband are very distant cousins through your common ancestor, Daniel Stockton. Nice to meet you too! You mentioned something about possibly contacting Find A Grave about no longer sending notification whenever a photo request has been fulfilled. I just want to caution you to be very careful not to get them "ticked off" at you. I have read some of the comments that other F.A.G. members have posted and they warn that you should be very careful not to criticize Find A Grave Admins or call attention to yourself in a negative way. Some people say that the Admins have retaliated by deleting some of their memorials. Tread softly!
|Lloyd Cunningham||RE: David D Stockton|
Nice to meet you too Melanie. This is actually Lloyd's daughter Cathy as Ive been managing his account for him lately and forget which one I'm one when I reply. We are happy to share information so let me know if you need anything on the Stocktons.
|Gloria Jennings Lowrey||RE: Wow, that stinks!|
Daniel Stockton was my husband's 4th great grandfather. Bless you for being a volunteer photographer. I am hoping that Ancestry.com will eventually resume sending email notification to let us know when our photo requests have been fulfilled. As you said, that is probably why you have not received sort of acknowledgement when you have posted photos. I would like to think that most people would be grateful and thank you if they realized their photo request had been fulfilled. I do hope this doesn't discourage you from continuing your generous work as a volunteer photographer. Even if you never receive a "thank you", your photos are invaluable to folks who would, otherwise, never have the opportunity to see the final resting place of their ancestors and loved ones.
