Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been climbing around
on my Family Tree, swinging
on it's branches, and digging
at it's roots for over
30 years, (since 1975).
I have been widowed since 1991, retired in 2005.
I LOVE Find-A-Grave. It is a wonderful
asset to the genealogy world.
If I've created a record that someone
needs to correct, update or add
information, please let me know and
I'll be glad to add your information
for you;... or if the person is your
direct family member, and you would
like to have me transfer "ownership"
of that memorial page to you, please
let me know...If that person is not
related to me and they are directly
related to you; I will be glad to
transfer their memorial to you.
However, I want to note:
Nearly all of the memorials that I
have created are connected to my
family tree and are a result of a
lot of years hard work and research.

To all the members who have been
kind enough to transfer "ownership"
of my family members to me....
Find A Grave is one of my favorite
It has given me a place that I can
remember my loved ones and honor
their memory.

If you have time, please leave a flower
for my dear husband, Roy E. Hughes.

RE: Thomas Mabry #30913473
Thank you so much you really did not have to do that as long as you added the info. I seldom ask for transfers any more as long as the info is added. Appreciate all your work, it helps tremendously. God Bless

RE: Col. Ezekiel Franklin Polk #18808120
Oh my! I'm so sorry. Since I'm new to "Find A Grave" and this is a learning curve for me about who adds what/where/when, I alerted this to the wrong person.
Please forgive me for sending this to you and I truly didn't mean to come across rude. That was never my intention.
The portrait looks so lifelike that I really thought it was a photograph.
Sorry about the confusion and the offense to you.

William E Langford

Thanks for creating this memorial for William Eleby Langford.
Could you upload the obituary that you have for William E. Langford Jr. to the older William E. Langford as it mentions him as well. Since he has no marker, it would be great to have that article as proof that he was buried there.

Also, I have from family sources that he is buried in Row 9, lot 11 and the younger William E is buried in lot 12. They were buried close together as they died close together.

RE: Elizabeth Putman Error
I am sorry. The reason I use the word error was that we have no idea who FNU was and the data was not correct. As you understand that often people run with formation than goes into other people histories. Example: her husband was Elijah Lloyd which was killed 6/10/1847 and is buried in Mexico. FNU is in the Askey Cemetery in Gonzales. Thanks

Elizabeth Putman Error
If you added that Elizabeth Putman is widow of FNU Lloyd you have made a large error. She is widow of Elijah Lloyd and maiden name is Switzler.

Have you see this website?

I found some of the earlier family names but not Green's so was wondering if you knew if any actually connect to Green?

Thank you for your time.

Elizabeth W Sherrill 27166042
Hi LoRetta,
I am working on my Wilson ancestors in Coffee Co Tn. Do you mind updating the memorial for Elizabeth W Sherrill, please? The W is for her maiden name Wilson. Her father is Thomas Watkins Wilson memorial number 26957797. Do you mind making the link or transfer so that I can?

Thanks for all you do on Find a Grave,

I would like to pick up your photo request but Sparkman Hillcrest (SH) does not like to provide burial locations to volunteers, citing privacy issues. Your cooperation is needed in order for requests to be filled. The volunteers will need you to call SH and request the location. Their phone number is 214-363-5401. Once you have the location, please add it to your request. Thanks.
