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.

RE: John Allen @ otterbein cemetery
Pat, being an Orangeman is not really a good thing. They are members of the Orange Order in Northern Ireland which was started in 1795 and were supporters of King William III of Orange. They are anti Catholic and their object is to maintain the political ascendency of Protestantism. They are the cause of all the war and bombings in Northern Ireland that is still going on today!
Yes it is sad that his son, William, lost almost all of his children to a diphtheria epidemic in 1861.
Like I said, I don't really need to own these relatives, you are doing a great job for me!!! Thanks, Lucy

RE: John Allen @ otterbein cemetery
Hi Pat, I read your bio and agree with everything you said. I wish there were more people like you on this site. I don't understand the competition aspect of owning the most memorials! I don't need to own my great great grandfather's memorial. I'm just so happy that you took the time to take a photo, write his bio, and put him on this site. Thank you so much! All I know about him was that he was a very proud Protestant "Orangeman" from County Down, Ireland. Your photo confirmed he was from there. Thanks again! Lucy

Pat - thank you again for transferring Ruth's memorial to me. I just found her brother who also died at the age of 2 years, so I finally have all my husband's great grandparents, grandparents, his Mom and Dad, and all of his aunts and uncles together. You were a great help!

Thank you so much for the photo. This poor lady has had her name changed on Find A Grave several times. The photo now solidifies her name. Every census, marriage, birth records, etc is different!

Puzzle solved:)

RE: Weadicks @ Mound Hill
You truly are "the goods." Thank you so very much!!!. There are likely more Weadicks that I have not listed as yet. There is one in particular. Thomas J. Weadick Jan 5, 1945 to Sep 2, 1984. Shown as being in Sect. 5, Lot 56 EH, Grave 2. Hopefully he is among the other Weadicks. Thank you again. You're great!

Etta Shipley Howard 13163039
Morning to you -
No, unfortunately, I know nothing more about Etta. I inherited this memorial and am not related to her. If you have her DC and would like to post it, please do. I won't add any of the info you just sent about her unless you want me to. And I still miss him all the time - bet you do too...
