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.

If you do not have an email listed on your profile and you have your messages disabled, please leave me a message as to your source(s) for edits you have sent me, otherwise I have no way to contact you and may have to decline your edits.

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

Dear ohlw:

Thank you for your advance permission to use any photographs which might pertain to my Cheadle Family Tree. He is a descendant (5th great grandchild of the progenitor, George Chedel/Cheadle). I just wanted to let you know that I believe in giving credit where credit is due and usually use "Courtesy, ohlw (unless you provide and permit use of your full name), contributor, Find A Grave Memorial # ? ? ?" If you do not wish credit, I use "Courtesy of Find A Grave contributor who wishes to remain anonymous." I would appreciate hearing from you personally but, should I not by May 25 I will assume you have no objections. I, too (at 86), so appreciate the passion and commitment of Find A Grave contributors. It just isn't possible for me and my husband to travel and do this for ourselves. Many thanks from an old lady!

Thanks for the additional data and the feedback.

Gaw's headstone is the center marker of a 3 grave plot. The other 2 graves are marked simply by crosses, but no names. I've noticed that every year someone cleans the plot and leaves new flowers. I'm hopeful that someday or someone can help me identify the other two graves.
