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: James Pool photo request
Thanks Mary Ann. I just saw the request.
And will report as a problem. He did not have a marker at Walker.
Hope you are doing well.

Thanks so much for finding and photographing the grave sites of the Wallaces. I'm researching them on behalf of an ex, who is a lateral relation.

Cheryl Clark
Ora Webb Miller
Hi, My name is Cheryl Clark and I am the great granddaughter of Ora Webb Miller. I noticed on the post you did for her on her tombstone you have her as a calculated daughter of Rutha Ann Orrell Webb and Legrand Hamilton Webb. She definitely is the daughter of the above mentioned and I will be posting picture of the rest of the family that I took today when I visited the graves of the Orrell-Webb family gravesites. I knew her very well and in fact she lived very closed to my parents and often I stayed with her weeks on end. I heard many stories about Legrand and Rutha and the church at Bethlehem. If there is any information I can give anyone I am happy to do so. Lucida Devine was the mother of Legrand.
