Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a genealogy geek too! No surprise there! I love helping others and never mind transferring management of an acct or editing info. If I own an acct or even manage one don't be afraid to ask if you want it. Sometimes I suggest a date addition or something after taking the photo and people will transfer management of the acct to me to edit even though I am of no relation, so I am always happy to send to a family member to manage.

***I have recently taken management of a few inactive acct creators accts in order to make edits and links as I photo survey entire cemeteries. I am happy to edit info or transfer to family members. I have not accepted all their accts just select cemeteries as I photo them.

Feel free to visit my dad's page & leave a flower Find A Grave 43914016

***sometimes when I post a picture from my I-pad while there at the cemetery, it posts sideways but will appear upright for me. Please let me know if I miss this so I can repost the picture. Thanks.

Anyone may use my photos for anything other than commercial purposes (unless express permission is given) or the creation of duplicate memorials on Find A Grave. You may copy and post them to other websites or use them in your family history or tree. For non-commercial uses and exempting creation of duplicate memorials my photos are gifts.

Lorene L. Fleming Smith
Hi Maria,

Thank you so much for adding her obituary to her bio. I deeply appreciate your kindness in doing that for her loved ones and for all of those family members who will be researching and looking for her. Thank you to for the beautiful gave marker and grave area photos you took and added to her memorial. You did such a wonderful job and I really do appreciate it.

Lorene is related to me through my Ashley line... by her mother being my GG-grandmother's first cousin, and Lorene L. (Fleming) Smith's sister, Charlotte Jeanette "Lottie" (Fleming) Oliver is also my ex-father-in-law's mother and she is my son's great-grandmother, so Lorene L. (Fleming) Smith is closer kin to him. He researches on his father's family line and he sends you many sincere Thank yous for creating such a nice memorial for his Dad's great Aunt.

Until Later..... God Bless,

Josephine Ellen Hicks Rigsby (35115907) Please remove the information that you left in the inappropriate place (flower). I added your information to the biography where it should be. You only had to ask and I would add it.

RE: artha Delinda Coventon Horton Scott
Have you seen the Family sheet that I took the small amount of information from concerning the American Indian heritage and the family ?
If not I would be glad to send it to you

artha Delinda Coventon Horton Scott
Thank you for doing the edits for Ms. Martha this is way way out on a branch of my tree. But I too am a fanatic and once I find something I can't rest until all I can do is done.
I apologize for the double editing you have had to do on the spelling of her last name.
I haven't been able to locate her Dad's resting place yet.
Just wanted to say "Thank You" for helping me

p.s. - While leaving a flower for Anna, I saw that she is your 10th great grandmother. So at someplace along her line, we are cousins. She is my 8th great grandmother. Take care.

Thank you for trying to photograph the memorial of Anna, and I appreciate the addition of the burial confirmed photo in absence of a stone. Can you share any info you learned first hand about the accuracy of the dates, etc. on her memorial? I appreciate your efforts!

Ditto the above--the top pic appears rotated 90 degrees counter-clockwise.

Also, links are added only for parents and spouse(s), then automatically show up on the other end, so you'll need to contact the other person about that impossible link.
