Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have three general areas of interest here:

Basic family.

Amateur radio history and pioneers.

Crime victims.

Being a licensed Amateur Radio operator [NE1LL] and former deputy sheriff as well as former bail bondsman fuels my interest. Skills from this as well as all of the librarians in the family helps.

Originally I started out based on an interest in Herbert Akerberg my first memorial.

I only enter: Relatives, people I have known and in the rare case people I have extensively researched. On rare instances family or near by graves of relatives of my other post which are then researched.

I'm always happy to field a photo request. Helps a lot if you contact the cemetery and get a plot number. I often have maps of my regular "haunts". I'm always happy to transfer any memorial.

Beyond Find A Grave and Amateur Radio I visit hospice patients with my Havanese Therapy Dog Chloe. We are also Tester/Observers in that we test new teams to be registered Therapy Dog teams.

I may not be dead but flowers on my memorial are always appreciated.

RE: Richard Cotton W8DX
You are so very welcome. I also left you a flower on your memorial. It reads. William. Thank you for all you have done and all you will still do. You have done a lot already. It is wonderful that you help out with hospice and the therapy dogs. Thank you for the service to our country as both a veteran and a police officer. Keep it up. Have a great day.

Martha was born a cavender and had some sisters and brother(s)three of her sisters are DELILAH CAVENDER COCHRAN, OLIVE (OLLIE)G CAVENDER CALDWELL, AND OPHELIA CAVENDER. DELILAH IS MY GREAT GREAT GRANDMOTHER. I AM JUST TRYING TO FIND OUT WHERE MARTHA AND WALKER NEILL ARE BURIED AND WHO THEIR CHILDREN ARE IF STILL LIVING.

Hi there,

I see you left flowers for my Great-Grandma Daisy. I wonder if you are related to her? Her daughter Edna was my grandmother.

RE: Alice Neill
Thanks. Alice Neill was my great great grandmother. Her second husband was Benjamin Neill who was born about 1845 in Canada. I have any other information other than he was married to Alice and she died a couple of years later.

Thank you!
Hello William,
Just wanted to thank you for leaving flowers on my memorials. I was a Neill, could we possibly be related? My grandfather was Thomas, he isn't in the main Neill plot at Finleyville Cemetery, rather up the hill further with my grandmother, Mary. I don't know a lot about other relatives, but if you are related to the William Neill in the family plot we are probably cousins of some sort, because the William there is his brother. If not, it's an interesting coincidence. I can be reached at: if you would let me know, it would be lovely to have some contact if so. Again, thank you for your kindness, I very much appreciate it. Take care and enjoy your summer!

Thank you so much (long overdue) for visiting so many of my family members murdered in the Holocaust. We appreciate it so very much.
