Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been researching my family history since 1987, over twenty years now. I am an avid reseacher and documentation is my pride.

I have a large collection of funeral memorbilia and do Victorian mourning talks. I had my display at Greenfield Village in Dearborn, MI for many years.

I have taken photos of all the burials in Dry Branch, Eastview, Shiloh and Howe Cemeteries in Benton Co, TN and added them to FAG. I have also taken many photo at Dalton Cemetery for family.

Enjoy visiting cemeteries and finding memorial symbols while taking photos for my family history volumes.

I take pride in joining this wonderful group of contributers on Find a Grave. Most of memorials have added information. I am not about numbers but want to assist others in finding more information about their family members.

I want to thank Rick Lambert for all the work he has done in Benton Co, TN cemeteries with memorials entered and photographs taken. I also want to thank him for all the tranfers he as given me. I will take good care of them all.

Elizabeth Arnold Puckett Potts
Hey Sharon,

I was wondering if you are related to this person or know any of the Pucketts of Eagleville. I am trying to locate next of kin in order to return letters that Mrs. Lizzie wrote to my mother-in-law, Florabel Potts Poore.

connecting some dots
Hi Sharon, I am researching the Wofford and Gillon families. All info you can help with is very appreciated. I can tell you that Dennis L Wofford(1950-2006) is the son of Wyly E (1920-1990)and Willie M Wofford(1931-1982). Michael Elmer Wofford(1955-1989) is his brother. I have a lot more info and have been trying to find more. Perhaps we can help each other out.

Janie R.Dobbins Henson
I found that Janie Dobbins Henson is my great grandmother and the mother to Della Lee Scott which is my grandmother was married to Jesse Scott in 1900 and he died on September 8, 1902 and my grandmother Della was born on December 21, 1902. Then Janie married Riley Curtis in 1903 and he died in 1912 after they had 4 children. Then she married Lon H. Henson in 1917 and they had 3 children together and Lon had 6 children from a previous marriage. I am just now finding out that my grandmother was basically raised by Ben F. and Drucilla Dobbins which is Janie's parents. I hope this helps with your research and Thanks.

Lucy Jane (Slate) Baldwin (1844-1895)
I was hoping, today, to get up to (literally - up a steep, cobblestone hill) the Methodist Ground at Springfield Cemetery to photograph the Baldwin lot. I may not make it. In the meantime, did you receive the additional information and/or documentation that I sent to your email address?

Respess Family
I enjoyed touring your site! Am interested in the Respess family as I am a Stephens of Kenton County where I am studying the family cemetery. The mother of Catherine Sanford Bristow Respess was Statira Bonaparte Stephens who m. Reuben Louis Bristow. Statira was the daughter of Leonard Stephens & Catherine Sanford Stephens.
*I have not been able to find the resting place of Statira & Rueben Bristow. Would you happen to know where they lived or died?*
We live in Springfield, IL & regularly walk in Oak Ridge Cemetery which is such a privilege. Many people from Kentucky came here to be buried near Lincoln - they are not Todds or Lincolns - perhaps personal or political friends. I've done a little reading on this phenomenon, realizing that many of these folks are "lost" from Kentucky families.

Holy Sepulchre Cemetery
I don't live in the area, but sometimes I am driving by it, so I called and got the location. I noticed there is a volunteer you goes there when the plot location is given. I would suggest removing your request, and putting in the location and requesting again, the volunteer may go and take the photo. He is in Section 28, Lot 84, grave 6.
