Bio and Links
I am retired. I have been doing genealogical research on my family lines for about 20 years. For the past few years I've put my research on the "back burner" but now that I've retired, I'm back into it. I enjoy going through cemeteries and each headstone tells only a very short history of that person's life. I now get to do several of my favorite hobbies, all at the same time, history, genealogy research, photography, walking through cemeteries, and motorcycle riding.
Not all of the headstones I list are family lines. If you find a correction or have additional information, just let me know.
If you have any ATWELL'S and transfer them to me, I'll take good care of them, but I will not transfer any ATWELL'S.
In the future, please use the change buttons that FAG has provided. I do check these to see if they are correct, so if it seems to be in error, I will decline them.
I will not link unknown burials.
DUE TO NUMEROUS FALSE EDITS AND MAKING EDITS FOR A CONTRIBUTOR AND THEN ANOTHER CONTRIBUTOR SAYING THAT EDIT WAS INCORRECT, VERIFICATION OF EDITS WILL BE REQUIRED OR THAT EDIT REQUEST WILL BE DENIED. IF YOU WANT TO MAKE AN EDIT BE PREPARED TO PROVE IT.

I've started putting G.P.S. locations on some memorials. The accuracy is supposed to be within 16 feet, so this should put you in the close proximity of the memorial. Not too bad for satellites 12,600 miles in space.

Sarah Pynes, #66664888, was my 4th great grandmother. I wanted to know if you would transfer her memorial to me? I am only asking for those that are in my direct line.

Hi Don, I am trying to get information to you so you can approved edits. Sarah Knowles Pope Stevenson 31701489 married Jesse E Pope 31701569
Dec 3 1882 in Henry Co Al. Daughter Anna Pope was born Nov 6 1886 31701456. Jesse E Pope is her father-not Samuel Redman Stevenson 31701532.
Anna Pope first married Andrew Jackson Corbin then a Mr Huff. So Corbin is not Anna's middle name-just a first marriage name. thank you so much for edits-you are doing a great job!

Find A Grave Memorial# 47999165 Martin Van Buren Capps
Hi Don,
Martin Van Buren Capps is my husband's 2nd G Grandfather. I am fairly new at this so will appreciate your explanation and help. I saw a note to read the rules for UNKNOWN, so I looked to see what I could find. Looks like I cannot create a permanent memorial for someone if I do not know where they are buried, correct? Is that the only reason you rejected the edit or is there another reason? I will delete the memorial for Hamilton Capps but if you have other information on this family line I would appreciate your sharing. I have noticed that you manage many of the Capps and Murphys (both my husband's family) and many in Pleasant Grove and Fellowship. Are you related to them?
Thank you
Barbara

MaryJane Phouts Ray
Hello Don, I received a email from ancestry that I had hints on Mary Jane so I went on Ancestry and I have found that your information says she & her husband was buried in Mount Pleasant Hill Cemetery in Barbour Co. Alabama. Your memorial# is 76491824. There is another memorial for them #42898880 showing the same headstone and that information says, buried in Sand Flat Cemetery, Tyler, TX.
I can not contact the owner of the one for Tyler, TX so I am hoping you can tell me which one is correct. Thanks you, Peggy Varnadoe

Lebia Lee
We realize the exact inscription is published from the burial plaque for "Lebia Lee."
However, S. S. Lee he reversed many of the letters but he made an outstanding effort! "Lebia Lee" was actually Ledia "Leady" Vickers Lee (1894-1928).
Additionally, our research shows Steven Lee's burial plaque should read Stephen Samuel Lee, 1874-1961 unless the incising reads differently. If possible, please publish the change. And, S. S. Lee's second wife was Leila "Lizzie" Johns Lee (1904-1986.
