Bio and Links

I always knew that I would do some kind of volunteer work upon retiring. I came upon Find A Grave while researching our (wife and I) ancestry. I have never enjoyed photography, but I truly enjoy claiming, locating, taking pictures, and posting the marker/headstone for the requestors. My biggest disappointment is finding that a gravesite does not have a marker or headstone.

I do volunteer photos, but I also enjoy taking photos of markers for the veterans interred at the National Memorial Cemetery of Arizona and posting them to the memorial that was established by another volunteer.

I served 20 years in the United States Air Force retiring as an E7 (Master Sergeant) 1961-1981.

RE: Minnie Elliff
Jerry-I will check again but I had the cemetery pinpoint the location on a map and that location had no marker. Grave 21 was in the front row so it would have been hard to miss.

RE: John Nix and Mary Ellen Beasley
Thanks for all the info! So, should I leave the memorial up and state that they are buried in another cemetery and this one is only a memorial in the Wyly Cemetery or just delete the memorial? What do you think? I don't want to confuse or mislead anyone on it.

Yes...I see what you mean about the memorials being duplicates. I went by a cemetery list..perhaps they made a mistake on it? I will be glad to remove it! The one you had showed the actual headstone! I don't live in the area to actually go to the Wyly cemetery and see for myself. The only way to know for sure......I have a relative that has two stones in cities 100 miles apart. One she was buried in and the other is a memorial with her husband. I wish I could be more help on this. Let me know if you find out and I will delete mine as I don't want have false info on the site! Thank You for letting me know of this! Have a great evening! Magpie

Really appreciate your efforts, Jerry. I'm working on the descendants of R.V. Goldsmith by his second wife, Betty Jean Lee, and was stymied by the birth date of her son, Johnny Ray Lee (born before her marriage to R.V.) but I found clues on your memorial pages that probably explain it. Now working backward on R.V.'s ancestors. Morris Simon in Alabama.

Thank you very much Jerry. I'm just finding info in bits and pieces but that's the way genealogy generally goes I guess. I thought I'd never find anything on Thomas' family until I wrote to the historical society and they kindly sent me his obit. I started researching the names in it and bingo....there's the daughter and son that grew to adulthood. Thank you so much for your response.

Jerry, my grandfather was first cousin to Mona's father, Thomas Triplett, of Anderson County, Mo. Thomas was raised by my gggrandfather, J.E.M. Triplett, who founded the town of Triplett, Missouri where I was born. I was so happy to find Thomas' first family as his second was in the town of Triplett, Missouri. He had several more children after having 6 with Permelia Hensley, his first marriage. His second marriage was to Angeline Anderson. They returned to Anderson where Thomas was a painter. He is buried in Triplett, Missouri in the McCullough Cemetery where most of my family is now. I would very much appreciate it if you can tell me anything about Thomas and where his son James Triplett might be. I know your family is Elliff but I thought you might know something or tell me how I might find out. Thank you. Barb Triplett-Brown, Gladstone, Mo.

FYI - Photo added
Re Bettie Frimodig - another volunteer has added the photo to the memorial that you requested. I noticed that the recorded name (as I received it in a database) is different than what is on the marker. If you know more than I do about this memorial, please feel free to add an edit request and I will update. Would appreciate any source info also, so we can update the bio. Thanks
