Bio Photo Because the website is arbitrarily removing work I submitted I am not contributing or participating unless I become more comfortable with it's operation. I will miss this. Many years, many friends.

My home is circa 1784. Its situation is such that it fell in the line of battle during the conflict between the States. When my father died, I was too early at the cemetery for the appointment concerning the necessary arrangements. To pass the time I paid a visit to the antique shop close by. Displayed there was a book which possessed a title that gave me the idea that my home may be mentioned within. Upon opening it, the pages fell directly to a description and photograph of my old place. It was not intended for the purpose, but the volume became a much worn field guide as I sought to visit and photograph other antebellum homes in the vicinity. I pursued that objective with interest and vigor. This caused me to notice the old churches en route and I began to photograph them. Behind the churches were cemeteries. Cemeteries that I found to be serene and sublime, full of lore. In turn they led me here and I stayed.

No courtesy, no action. You churlish lot best steer clear of me.

Please do not post Certificates of Death on entries of my origin.

Thank you.

I am very sorry you feel uncomfortable with this web site. I have spent hours looking for the Beaver Cemetery today, and I really would like to photograph it before I return to Fl., If you know where it is, could you please let me know, I have followed a dozen people different directions unsuccessfully and I really would like to do this.
Eager to hear from you.

Hello George,
Thank you for posting the photo of my great great grandfather. I have the tin type original that is in your contribution. The important thing is that if my original had been destroyed by a mishap then there would have been a copy. Thank you for your huge efforts on find a grave. Jeff Thomson
