Bio and Links
Bio Photo From the Arkansas Delta

I've been an active genealogist for 30+ years. I'm currently researching the surnames Lunsford, Linville, Norris, Ferguson, Meador, Cole, Williams, Tully, Byrn, Greenhaw, Yates, and Morelock.

I'm an avid cemetery transcriptionist simply because I believe everyone deserves to be remembered.

I don't post graves simply for the number of memorials I can stack up. I strive for accuracy, and in particular, finding unmarked graves. If someone is related to any of these memorials, just let me know. I will gladly transfer your family members.

Madie Darby (FAG# 119046049)
Hello, I received a request from you to link Madie Darby (Find A Grave# 119046049) with Mother,
Mary H. Sanders (Find A Grave# 30085742)

I added the memorial in question from an obituary in our local newspaper and have attempted to link her known family. Per the obit, her parents were: Arthur VanBuren Howe and Mary Sevilla Williams. Did her mother remarry a Sanders? If so, who was he? The reason for the questions is that this cemetery is full of family and I have a special affinity for this place and hope to be able to link all the family together. If you are family and would like to have domain over this memorial please let me know and I will transfer.

Madie Ellen Darby, 92, died Tuesday, May 13, 2008, at Golden Living Center in Batesville. Services are today at 2 p.m. at Willow Springs Assembly of God Church. Burial will be in Bethel Cemetery. Dickins Funeral Home has charge. Darby was born Nov. 22, 1915, to the late Arthur VanBuren Howe and Mary Sevilla Williams. She was preceded in death by her husband, Fred Lee Darby; one son, Carrolls Darby and one daughter, Ellen Maxine Darby. Survivors include: one son, Arnold Darby of Southaven; four grandchildren and two great-grandchildren

RE: James D. Hubbard FAG#27893099
That is fine. I think in order to link to a contributor, you would use the code ms&MSid=##### for contributor number rather than gr&GRid=##### for the memorial number. I could not find explicit instructions for linking to contributor in the Help section but it is similar to linking to a memorial but with a different code.

RE: James D. Hubbard accidentally linked to memorial 49007349 instead of contributor 49007349.

RE: Gibson Bayou Cemetery
I live in Michigan but travel a lot. I spent over 30 years in the Air Force which gave me time to visit a lot of cemeteries. We are on a three month trip right now but not getting very much cemetery time because of the heat. I'm not totally against adding bios and obits but when I get one 3 pages long that rambles on and on about this person's accomplishments, I put them on the back burner. I do eventually try to post them. When I'm on the road I have a tough time getting an internet connection most of the time. Anytime you want a transfer, just let me know. Take care.

You made a request to add a spouse for Arthur Dabbs. He is buried by a spouse. Do you have more information? Was this a second spouse?

Got the information added thanks for the help. Like you I think everyone needs to be remembered. If this is your family feel free to ask for her memorial. I've been trying to survey a lot of the cemeteries around by taking pictures. Just trying to help update some old lists.

You sent me an edit for my great-grandmother, Elza Lancaster.
I declined it because the death certificate states
she died June 20, but she was buried at Mt Tabor on June 19th.
I have found errors on many death certificates.

I'm sorry. I personally don't know about 99.99 percent of people in my memorials. I also get about the same percent of my information from walking the cemetery. I travel all over this country and before Find A Grave I walked with pencil and paper. Take care.
