Bio and Links
Bio Photo Retired U.S. Naval Aviator, and L.D.S. Church member, I'm originally from the Richmond, Virginia area, and now live in Central New York State, near Skaneateles. My interests include genealogy and family history, photography, and the outdoors. Find A Grave lets me combine all three, and get a little exercise in the process.

Family names of interest include Powers, Amos, Collins, Vernon, Nuckols, Slayden, Cobler (& var. Cobbler, Kobler, Keppler), and Atkins (& var. Adkins), among others.

If you see a memorial I have created, and you are a descendant, or a relative, who wishes to assume custody and management of the memorial, please let me know. It would be helpful if you could explain how you are related (OK, so I'm nosy).

If you see a mistake that should be corrected, or you wish to add additional information to a memorial I have created, again, please get in touch with me (NOTE: If your article, or addition, has errors in it, please proof-read, and correct them, before sending it to me.
I prefer to NOT post information from electronically-scanned and digitized transcriptions of "old" documents that still contain illegible passages).

I approve the use of photos I have taken for personal, non-commercial use in family genealogy records. I do NOT approve commercial use of my photos by anyone. This includes for-profit (subscription) genealogy record libraries.

I have very little use for those folks who sit comfortably at their computers many miles away, and create Find A Grave memorials from transcribed records they've "discovered" on another database somewhere on the internet. This merely creates duplicate information (and adds a level of permanence to errors made by the transcriber or record keeper), and contributes nothing to the overall repository of knowledge for those engaged in research on their own family history.

You can send me an e-mail through Find-A-Grave by clicking on the "edit" tab at the upper right-hand corner of the memorial's page, or contact me at Mike13152 (at) yahoo dot com, or leave a Public Message.

Carol is my husband's grandmother and Sally, Carol's daughter is my husband's mother. I have been working on both mine and my husband's genealogy. I love doing it.

The Whiting's
Thank you so much for taking head stone pictures of the Whiting's. I live in Oregon and doubt that I'll ever get a chance to visit Indian Mound Cemetery.

Thanks again, John

Amos S. Stevens

I am writing to you in regards to Amos Scott Stevens. Our Boone-Nance County Genealogical Society in Boone Co., NE is compiling a Civil War book on the men who served in the war that lived in Boone County. Amos Stevens was one of these men. Would it be possible to use your photo for our book? Thanks in advance! Have a great day!
