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 will have to decline your edits.

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.

RE: Balls @ Willow View
I believe he may be a brother to Johnnie, but not certain. All the info we have says Johnnie had a brother named Bobby, but he went by Bobby, so I cannot confirm that Robert is one and the same. If I find out different, I will let you know. Thank you!

RE: Balls @ Willow View
Thank you very much. I have been looking at the Willow View memorials and found that Johnnie Sr. is my cousin, so if you wouldn't mind, you could transfer management of Johnnie and Bernice to me, also their two sons. The numbers are:

That way I can maintain them in case other family members would like to add additional information. Thank you!

Hi Pat,
Thanks for catching that. Bernice was Johnnie's wife, not his sister. Sorry about the confusion!

Thanks for asking about the Motes. Yes, I'd be happy to take over the Mote Memorials. They are connected to my tree by marriage. Pat in OKC

RE: Bertha Anderson @ Hollansburg
Hi - These are Fouts & Coblentz in Otterbein Cemetery, right? They are 6th cousins 2 or 3 times removed; I don't need to maintain them, thanks. (I wish F-A-G would develop ways to sort (by date requested, date approved, name, cemetery, or page owner) & search (same fields) on the pages for edits pending & edits approved - I have over 120 edits pending & 2900 approved - and 28 declined.)
