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.

Glad to help, anytime. Actually, I found a few more graves in the other cemetery today, I'll let you know when I get them posted. They are your Broyles family 😊.

RE: James E Broyles
Hi Colleen, we finally found James Broyles in another cemetery, do you remember how to change the cemetery name? I put the correct cemetery on his photo on his memorial, let me know if you need help. 🤗

Mollie Surber Justice
This message is in reference to your Find A Grave #50950527. I don't believe she is the daughter of John Riley Surber and Jane Childs. There is not any reference to her in any of the census records. Further her date of birth would not be 1866 since it shows on the tombstone her age at 28y, 8mo, 14days which places here at Apr 11, 1861.

Still looking to see if she was a widow when she married E A Justice.

Hi Colleen,

Looks like you created two records for this person. Please see Find A Grave #159700566. Thought you would want to know so you could delete one of the records. Must have been one of those late nights spent doing data entry to Find A Grave! lol We all have them!

Thanks so much!
