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.

RE: Salem at Fall Creek
We've done these cemeteries many times, but a fresh eye is never a bad idea. I'll contact you when we get home later in the week...

Salem at Fall Creek
Re: TATE family John and Mary Tate are my husband's 3rd-gr grandparents. I'm sure John is there, too, the boys just never got around to putting his data on the stone. I'd like to add a virtual record for him and define the relationships in this cemetery and in Hopewell not far away (Family of John Robert Tate--1st son) We're on our way to Indiana for July 4th weekend and plan to walk these cemeteries again on Sunday. I'll be sending data when we get home next week.

She is one of the cousins in my Fischer-Morlock family.

She sometimes went by "Margie" or "Maggie".
Death Certificate lists her date of birth as 18 Jul 1876. Date of Death is 25 Aug 1945 in Anderson, Madison, Indiana.

She never married.

Thank you SO much for all the gravestone photos for the Moses and Sarah Haymond Meal family, not just the ones I requested. Having multiple shots of the stone is very helpful. I really appreciate all your time and effort to photograph this family!!

RE: Unknown Pedigo
My mother was the first female Pedigo in the male line in our family from when they came to America. We should keep in touch.

Unknown Pedigo

I saw you put an unknown Pedigo Photo in the Mt. Tabor Cemetery, Boone County IN. I took photos of this grave in the 90's when it was easier to read. This person is Lucinda Alice Pedigo, date of birth 29 June 1865 and date of death 11 November 1894. She was my great grandmother. If you could add that information, I'd appreciate it.

Her parents were Daniel Smith and Leannah Smith who later married James Shirley.
