Bio and Links
Bio Photo I research many family lines>> They come from Pa to NC/TN, from KY to TX.Willing to take those of my family lines, extended families & those in our Smothers Tribe DNA project to manage when I run across them. I am glad to submit various family memorials as the info is gathered & given to me. It is my passion as a genial genealogist to assist others as much as possible.

..I like this from members pages "Let's make it a goal to add as much info, as we can possibly document, to these memorials."
.."I enjoy reading contributors Bio's but it's called that for a reason but Not, to use the space to reiterate guidelines by a contributor who feels the need to preach to others about how they should make their memorials. Believing we are all adults & know the guidelines most all do act accordingly & do not need preaching."
.."Any and all info or pics I have uploaded are meant for SHARING! I just don't understand anyone thinks different, if you don't want to share, than DON'T put them on a public site!"

Death certificates may be added via the "Add a photo" button on the memorial page. [that should end that discussion]Those who say not to add them are looking at them way too negative! Unlike many I appreciate DC's as I believe they help family understand why, for example, one might died so young or perhaps there was some hereditary disease involved, it's important to visitors and family, about inherited health issue. DNA test called 23and me helps families know inherited fatal issues; passed from generations down.
Also DCs help show parents, where born and has some good info 'guides' otherwise not known, so I for one, really like them posted and appreciate the effort. I see way too often where memorial folks assume a person dies where they are buried and often that is just not the case, if its a family plot and person died elsewhere, DC's really help distinguish that fact that family is more often than not, no matter where died, are buried with family, even being shipped there. I see no reason for DC's to be viewed as detrimental at all but enlightening.

"The Dash" based on little line on tombstone, between the dates of birth-death; ultimately, is a symbol represents each day spent alive on earth; how one spends the "dash" is what really matters; memorials hopefully give a glimpse into lives of that DASH!

Living on a working ranch, happily retired; heartfelt Passion for Genealogy; immensely enjoy working with members, helping folks connect with their ancestors; happy to make links, corrections & transfers. Esp appreciative of gravestone photographers; big Cudos!!Many kind thanks leaving flowers of ancestor memorials!
~Happy Trails!

PS-Not sure WHO deleted my pet peeve of going to my memorials, signing MY name and adding a forget me not flower I do NOT have in my scrapebook, but STOP IT! IT'S BEING DONE AGAIN PLUS DELETING SOME OF MY OWN SCRAPEBOOK FLOWERS! and JFYI I own our DNA flower token, no one else does, NO ONE, leave it ALONE and stop deleting it!!

Robbie Carnell Story
Charles Busby
I have entered more information concerning Mary and Charles Busby. Find A Grave would not let me do any editing or make links because you may have editing pending. I did all I could do for now. Thanks

Thank you so much for the reminder that he is between the stones. I think I knew that years ago, but had forgotten it. Thanks again

Nena - Thank you for the requests, hope to work with you again. Also, I wanted to tell you that the "bell for John's grave" you mentioned on the John Huffman memorial is a photo of his urn for his cremains. His wife's are in a "book-style" urn, more common in this mausoleum.
Thanks again, Stephen

Nena, I have added the information to Prudence Elmina's memorial. I did not add the daughters name since she is living. Thanks for contacting me with the info. Connie

I went ahead and made the link between Stephen and David Traxler. I figure that, although the burial is "unknown," it is likely the best we can do given the paucity of records for the period in which David lived.
