Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing genealogy research for over 30 years and it's taught me so much more than just who my ancestors were. I've learned history, geography, population dynamics, how profoundly horrible the Civil War was (as all war is), how to read really bad handwriting, and most of all, patience. It's like being a detective and I love to solve puzzles. I am researching the surnames Olvey/Alvey/Olvy, Wheeler, Williams, Gray, Sale, McBride, Martin, Hicks, Armstrong, Swaim/Swim, Sturdivant, Brown, Sparks. If you spot my mistakes or want to add information on anyone, please let me know at my email address or leave a message.

I am not one who believes this web site is a numbers competion. If you transfer a memorial to a family member outside the confines of FAG's stated rules, it does not subtract that transfer from your total. And I firmly believe that the vast majority of contributors to this site, do so overwhelmingly to contribute genealogy information. I think the rules for transferring should be changed. If you are simply entering the information from daily obituaries to see how many memorials you can own, and you are not at all related to the deceased, why would you care if someone who is related-in any way-would want to care for that memorial? Why would you refuse them that desire? After all, what you are doing is a voluntary choice, so refusing because it's your time or gas or shoe leather or whatever, it's strictly your choice. And nowhere in the FAG rules does it say it's a competition.

RE: McQuary Cem., Christine Co., KY
I added all the pics that I took.(I think) I added each memorial though from the cemetery book for Christian County. The stone wasn't there for this person.'s possible. I will have to get my external hard drive out to see if there are any other pics. I don't think there are, but it doesn't hurt to check. I've switched computers since then so...give me a bit and I will try to find them. Oh, I've sent you my email address, did you get it?

Talk soon,

Are you in the Globe/Miami, AZ area?
If so, please message me right away. A crew is coming to the Globe, AZ cemetery this afternoon, and I'm trying to find as many findagrave volunteers as I can to come.

Yes, I'd love any photos you might share of this family and their extended families.
Constant and Jane are my direct ancestors.

RE: Meredith Armstrong's marker
I agree! It's interesting in that there are six of these markers in that cemetery. So far, they are the only ones I've found. They are very safe from being stolen, however! I don't think you could budge one without a tractor!

RE: Birth place
I like that term, Harrisonian! If it wasn't a word, it is now! Glad to meet you! Hope the photo was satisfactory and thanks for your work on findagrave!

Meredith Armstrong
Sir, I'm from Newton County, and I plan on being at the Collins Cemetery before long, where I noticed you had a request for a photo of Meredith Armstrong's grave. I believe his to be one of the stacked rock cairns, and I'd be happy to get a photo for you, but there will be no info visible on it. I didn't want to just rudely upload a picture without asking if that would be acceptable first. If you would, just let me know. Thanks for your work! Have a great day!
