Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been working with cemeteries one way or another all my life. When I was a child, I helped my mother and my aunts clean the brass markers on the graves of my grandfather and my uncle and other family members; my maternal grandmother had beautiful flowers all in her yard and we were constantly taking flowers to the graves of relatives and people who were friends of my grandmother (though complete strangers to me) who "had no one else to put flowers on their graves." Later, as a daughter-in-law, I became involved in the Henry County Genealogy Society's cemetery book project when I volunteered to type up listings on the over 425 cemeteries which the group had compiled for publication. I enjoy taking pictures of stones for people who cannot personally get to cemeteries in my area, and I appreciate people who have done the same for me in their area. I have created several memorials in the course of my cemetery work. Some of the memorials are people who are not related to me, so I am always willing to transfer those non-related memorials to people who request them - hopefully allowing more information to be listed than I am able to provide.

RE: Jonathan Ross West Memorial
I received the photo of Jonathan's tombstone from his mother, and I posted it, forgetting that I had already made a photo request. Sorry for the confusion. Thanks for following up.

RE: Nora William Ross correction
Thank you for updating!
Curious if you have ever come across anything on Henry Franklin Ross b. 1834 and his father Little Berry Ross b.abt 1798?

RE: John Carr photo problem
So you did not put the plot information in or ask the cemetery for the location? Yes it could be wrong.

James Grroms
Did you find a James Grooms (d-2013) near Eula Grooms Robbins or Barbara Grooms Johnson at Hill Crest?
His obit does not tell a cemetery but thought he might be at Hill Crest?

Thanks, Susan

RE: Nathan Divine photo
Hazel Divine Well is beside Nathan. She could have been his wife. Her dates are 1901-1983.
