Bio and Links
Bio Photo I now live in Gainesville, FL in a retirement community associated with the University of Florida. Since 1973 family history research has been more than a hobby - it has been a passion.

I will gladly transfer any memorial not included in my research. If you see changes, corrections, or wish to add additional information, please use the edit tab to request these changes. If your information contradicts my research, please forward sources so I can correct research errors.

Please feel free to use my photographs for genealogy programs, however, I would prefer to upload my own photographs for Find A Grave memorials.

Most all of my memorials originate from tombstone pictures or credible burial records. Obituaries can prove inaccurate and I try to confirm them first.

My father's families: George: Blackmun, Briggs, Gardiner, Hardy, Kennedy (Canada), Lilley, McCallum, Paxton, Tindall, Thompson (England), Watson, and Winch.

My mother's Families: Wilson: Andre, Blessing, Cochran, Cross, Fiscus, Jackson, McKinstry, Ross, Sober, and Stephens.

My wife's families: Gibson: Bechtel, Boling, Catron, Clark, (K)Coiner, Combs, Etheridge, Hattabaugh, Hurlbut, Misenheimer and My wife and I are members of the
Tarvin Family Association and volunteer to take tombstone photographs and record memorials for the Association .

If you do not want to take them over, I will transfer to Find A Grave for their care. Let me know and thank you for all you do.

Thank you for the photos of the markers for Ralph. I love how legible they are. Well done! Thanks for taking the time to do this for me. Much appreciated! How are things in Florida? I've been getting some markers up north photographed and they show snow on the ground… I guess that you don't need to worry about that!

Best wishes,
