Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm Pat and have been researching my family tree for 30 years. My family lines are Bean, Gaw, Gore, Dennis, Kinnaird, Bullington, Judd, Terry, most all in the Putnam/Jackson County, TN area.

I have searched my local cemeteries in Ohio for other researchers and am happy to look for gravestones for someone far away. I know how thrilling it is to find another piece of the puzzle. I've had people help me so it's all about keeping it going.

For me, this is not a competition to see who can have the most memorials. My purpose is to capture the records of people who have passed for future generations who might one day look for their final resting place. I believe every person's grave should be respected.

If I manage a memorial for your family member and I am not also related I am happy to transfer to you. I do not follow the guidelines for transfers - I believe memorials should be managed by their family members or close friends, whatever the relationship. It would be selfish of me to keep your family members' memorial. Families have more information and photos and have an attachment to that person that a stranger doesn't have. So don't hesitate to ask for a transfer even if you're not in the 4-generation guideline!
You are welcome to use my photos in your family trees, ancestry, etc. A credit would be nice, but again, not why I do it.

I would say the one in Crestview is the correct one
Crestview was called Gallatin memorial when it first opened
I will delete the one in Gallati cemetery

Thank you for photographing the memorial and headstone for John S. Laughlin.
Mr. Laughlins wife was named Elizabeth she died (20 June 1918). The information on the death certificate coincides with family history and It lists the date of burial as 24 May 1918 a clerical error I assume; St. Mary's Cemetery Richmond Indiana, her maiden name is listed as UNK I created a memorial for her and I don't want to make an error. Was she mentioned on the monument?

Thank you again.

RE: MICHAEL family 94065623
Thank you Pat. Right now I am just trying to prove my relationship with the Michael family. My mother was adopted at birth and while I have lots of information on the birth mother I have only recently made a connection to the Michael family through DNA. If I can prove it beyond a shadow of a doubt then I'll be happy to take a transfer.

MICHAEL family 94065623
Are you by any chance related to this Michael family? I believe that David Deardorff MICHAEL was my 3rd great grandfather. I am working with another lady trying to prove that her Joseph MICHAEL and my David (Jr.) were brothers and sons of this man and his first wife Elizabeth Williamson. Since you added information to Phebe Harter Michael's memorial I am wondering if you have more that a passing interest in this family?

RE: Bertha Anderson @ Hollansburg
Hello (from a few months ago),
I found that the pending edits are sorted, in a way: all birth & death dates & places come first, then relationships, then names, etc. This is the order of the possible edits presented when requesting an edit. Logical, in a way.

Still it would be helpful if we could sort by name or date of request.

RE: Mary Fellers
Hi again, thanks so much for your response to Mary Fellers memorial. I to have ran into the same problem with names being miss understood, and that thought did cross my mind because I haven't had much luck finding anything on a Mary Howell. So I will turn my research to a Mary Howard now, and see what I come up with. Thanks again for your help.

Mary Fellers
Hi,I am researching the Fellers family for my cousin, and I am confused about his gr. grandmother Mary's maiden name (Howard) memorial # 117403122 . I know that she married Wm.B Fellers and he was killed by a tractor running over him, this was confirmed by my cousin. But on their son Andrew's marriage license (Ancestry) it states his mother as Mary J. Howell. Could you clear this up for me. Thanks
