Bio and Links
When I retired from the Penn State University Libraries, where I was a reference assistant and staff supervisor for many years, I began to research our family history, and this has led my husband and I to a number of cemeteries around the country, searching for family members and taking photos of their graves. It has thrilling for us to find the grave sites of long-lost relatives as well as to visit those of fondly-remembered loved ones. It has been equally thrilling to discover photos that have been posted to Find a Grave for relatives buried in distant places that we have not visited or are not likely to ever be able to visit. I am very appreciative to all of the Find a Grave community of volunteers who so freely give of their time and effort in creating memorials and taking photos, so that others may benefit from them. Likewise, we are happy to share our photos with anyone who cares to use them for personal research or on genealogical sites such as We aren't professional photographers, and our egos are not invested in our photos. That said, we would still love to hear from you if you are able to use our photos, simply to give us a little "glow" from being able to help you out, and it would be nice, as well, if you would give attribution to Find a Grave and to "Gwen and Bob," but that's up to you.

Most of the memorials we have posted have been for members of our families, but we will consider transfer requests within the Find a Grave transfer guidelines. If there are errors to correct and/or additions to be made, please let us know and we will attend to them as soon as possible.

RE: B Brown
cemetery records show that B. Brown died in Mt. Pleasant on the 26th and was interred in Aspen Grove on the 28th. He was buried in the same lot as other Browns, but there simply wasn't a marker.

Tami Michelle Rhea Hobbs
Recently out of curiosity I did a google search for "Tami Michelle Rhea Hobbs".
Tami was my 1st Wife whom passed away, but I believe you know this.
I was surprised to find a link to a website named findagrave, that included pictures of Tami's grave site.

I understand that this is legal and grave-sites are public property so I have no issues with legality of this.

My issue is that a family member of mine whom barely knew Tami would be so inconsiderate and uncaring of myself and Tami's parents wishes in such a personal matter to post this for all to see, WITHOUT getting any permission from myself or her parents.
This is a personal issue and it surprises me that you wouldn't even have the decency to ask my feelings before posting.

Please remove any references and pictures of Tami on the above mentioned website and any other websites you have put them on without consideration of my or her parents feelings.
