Bio and Links
Bio Photo My Daddy taught me at an early age to love and respect cemeteries and the graves therein. Having become the family historian, there is great joy in documenting history with tombstone pictures.

I am appreciative of anyone who takes time to photograph cemeteries and add memorials. This attempt to do likewise for the benefit of others who may never be able to actually visit the cemeteries of their ancestors.

I would love to hear from you if you found this information helpful. Should you have any corrections, please contact me.

I have photographed and documented our loved ones with respect. If you want one removed or would like to have a memorial transferred to you so that you might add more information, please send an E-mail and I will be happy to honor your request.

RE: Smith Cooper Humphries
Transfering the memorial is unnecessary because I am not related in the least. I was just helping with posting photos that I had found to the respective memorials that didn't have them. Thanks for the suggestion. Wished other contributors would view it that way as well. I have a great aunt that I wanted to join with the rest of the family and was pertinently told that 'they' will have to keep them with their county geneology. Boy, that just boiled me. All of sudden, it is like one isn't able to keep their own history...some unknown person or group thinks that it is theirs. I am reminded of the kid 'fish movie' (can't recall the title) where the seagulls were all hollering, "Mine, mine, mine"...Ha, ha

Smith Cooper Humphries
Just added a photo of Smith Humphries. It looks like it is from a newspaper so it isn't that good. However, some of his kin may come around to this memorial and 'see' it for the first time. If you prefer not to have this photo posted because it is so grainy or for any other reason just let me know.

RE: John Melvin Gamel
Thank you very much for your lovely message. I enjoy it very much when others feel comfortable enough to share a bit of their own life story. I found it rather interesting. I never had much of a chance to study cemeteries as a child, but there was a funeral home between my home, church and my grade school, which I had to walk past almost daily. I use to go up stairs where the owners lived and they would give me cookies and milk. I grew up only having one living Grandparent so I was always attracted to older people that treated me as their own grandchild. Anyway, I loved to listen to stories of the deceased lives which were always filled in with events, family and friends that also lived near me. I don't think there was a living soul in town that I didn't learn something about by the age of 7. The main thing I enjoy most about creating memorials is doing the research and making them as personal as possible by providing as much information concerning their families and life. Everyone has a story, and I do enjoy reading about other peoples lives. Sorry this was so long, but your comment concerning studying the headstones at the cemetery your Daddy worked at, make me think of this childhood memory. I guess I was sort of a weird kid, looking back. LOL! Take care and thank you for the memorial transfer. :)

John Shelton Palmer
I am Jayne Palmer in Anthon, IA. I was born and raised in Tekamah, NE. I'm hoping you can help me straighten out some of these palmers.
My father is Jerry Charles Palmer - Tekamah
Grandfather is Lloyd Dallas Palmer - Tekamah
Gr-Grandfather is John Burton (Bert) Palmer - born in Elsberry, MO and died in 1962, buried in Tekamah, NE. From there I have a variety of names: His father could be John Sheldon or Shelton Palmer - mother could then be Mary Helena Stephens Palmer.
I really have no documentation to tell me anything about John Burton's parents. Hope you can help.
Thanks, Jayne

I am searching for a Oliver Clayton Womack from Kentucky.
He was a preacher.
I am told he raised my great grandmother after her mother died. (Susie Mae Cobb)

Do you research the Womacks
