Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi!

A little about me...I'm a amateur photographer/genealogist/findagraver as well as an extremely proud mommy to six children (3 girls/3boys) and 16 grandchildren! :) I've been working on my own family tree since about 1994...not long after my Grama passed away...she raised me and so I do occasionally refer to her as my Mommy. Family that I am working on are Sanders, Denny/Denney, Cummins, Daglish, McCord, Heater, Galbreath and Lobb. I live with my best Ed as I call him! and our doggie, Jettie. I found Findagrave while researching our family and have been a die hard "Graver" since!

Update: Married my best friend, My Ed, Oct 3, 2014 and am now officially a "new" person lol

PLEASE If you want to request a transfer or updates to memorials do that through the "edit" tab/suggest a correction!!!! When I have many many many edits/transfers/messages to read and answer it gets frustrating to have to look up the memorials for each request when if done correctly I can just click on the link included with the suggestion/edit...quicker for me to get it done for you :) :)

If someone has an issue with any memorial I am involved with please be polite and adult and send a note through the SAC feature and I'll gladly do whatever I can to make you happy! Leave me a rude hateful message and I'll first delete it and then forget about it. That way I'm returning the favor!

From Find A Grave's FAQ...
"The ultimate goal should be to have meaningful, accurate memorials that honor those who have passed away, regardless of who created the memorial or who maintains it."

I have no problem whatsoever doing any updates or links to my memorials and definitely will transfer if I'm not related and you have a direct connection.
I love being able to link up entire families as far back or forward as possible!!! It's like a big puzzle and I also love puzzles :) It gives me a great feeling to get one done! I always try to find a little information to add to the memorials that I create so that it is more than the mere fact that someone was born and they died. Sometimes I'm unsuccessful but believe me I usually spend some time searching before I give up! Stubborness I guess lol.
If I ever add a picture to a memorial that you would rather I didn't please let me know but I prefer to hear from the "manager" of the memorial.

Ok thanks. I have your photos on my Uncle's memorial that I made and didn't know how they got there!

Overleese Cemetery in Rush Co., Indiana
I have been trying for years to get the county to take care of this old cemetery, but they tell me it is on private land and therefore, they don't have to care for it. It IS in such sad shape! I recently got emailed by an individual who said a similar old cemetery in the area was "taken care of" by a descendant, to the tune of $10K ! I don't have that kind of money to toss at it, but I would do it myself except I live in South Carolina and only get to Indiana once or twice a year to visit relative. None the less, I have offered to BUY the private property so that I can care for it, replace or repair some of the old tombstones of my ancestors. Let you know the outcome...Mary Ann Bumgarner, Travelers Rest, SC

Thank for photographing Hiram Lamkin head stone for me. It does takes great effort and time to locate upload photos and I thank you for that.
Great photos as well!

Thanks for helping with FindAGrave! Sometimes cemeteries change their names, or have an official name and a common name. I've been caught by this before! Cheers- Sheryl

Thanks for adding the military info to this grave. Used to live near this cemetery, but no longer.

RE: Matilda Kiste Hershman
Thanks for explaining. The listings made it appear they might even be in 2 different cemeteries.

I'm confused with the 2 markers. Are both in the same cemetery? One seems more modern.
