Bio and Links
Bio Photo Happily unattached, traveling nurse anesthetist with a passion for genealogy, outdoors, and photography. I enjoy recording and sharing cemeteries I find in my travels with people on FAG. I am not related to most of my memorials; please let me know if I can transfer a relative of yours to you. I enjoy doing photo requests and try to take a few extra pictures while I am there. I try to prepare the stone for a nice picture but don't always have my tools with me (the airlines frown on gardening tools in luggage!) to trim grass, wash bird droppings, etc. Please let me know if I've made some typos and I will correct ASAP. Also, please let me know if you get a better photo and I will delete mine. I'll be always grateful to one of my high school English teachers, Marjory Sharp, Find A Grave Memorial# 117584719, for assigning a four generation pedigree chart and to my great grandmother, Eva Alta Jackson Yeokum, Find A Grave Memorial #20165966, who lived next door and helped me fill it out the night before it was due!

January 2012 - I am working to "link" my memorials. Links weren't around when I started here, so I'm having to do some serious backtracking! Thanks to everyone that sends additional information for the memorials--I get 10-20 emails a week--please be patient as I work on getting all this added, too.

RE: Good to finally meet you!
News about the "hidden" cemetery. Yesterday the men worked to clean it; did a good job until they disturbed a nest or hornets. Today I talked to the men while they were hand-digging a grave and now have the contact numbers to hopefully obtain permission to photograph and help clean the cemetery. I'll keep you posted.

RE: Good to finally meet you!
Ha, ha. I will try to find a way to obtain permission to do a clean up on that cemetery.

Good to finally meet you!
Just a quick hello to say that it was good to meet a fellow Find A Grave volunteer. Thanks for all you do for Find A Grave!

I'm also a family member, trying to find out where William Wroe and Minerva are buried. Have you been able to locate.

Yes, mine is a duplicate; thank you for the message. Several months ago I had asked Find A Grave to merge the two cemeteries - Wild Heron and Emma Grove - and asked them to delete any duplicates.

I will delete my memorial as yours has the earlier date. Emma Grove Cemetery is looking very good so I hope you will be able to add some new photos.

Thanks for all you do for Find A Grave.
