|Bio and Links|
|I started doing genealogy in June 1999. My goal was to find info on my father's father. My grandfather died in 1936 when my dad was 10 yrs old. Over the years my father would ask his mother questions about his dad and my grandmother would always say "I don't remember anything about your father." My father died in 1969 at the age of 43. After his death, I started asking my grandmother questions about my grandfather. I got the same answers my dad got. She didn't remember anything about him and she couldn't tell me where he was buried. Just somewhere in Pasco County outside of Zephyrhills. She told me I would never find his grave because it wasn't marked. When I found out that you could send for a death certificate, I sent for my grandfather's. When I received it, I found out where he was buried. We made a trip to Geiger Cemetery. First grave my husband walked to was my grandfather's grave. It was marked. He fought in World War I and had a military marker on it. He was buried with siblings, parents, and grandparents. All names I had never heard of before. By the time I started doing genealogy my grandmother had died, so I wasn't able to share this with her or my dad. When my father died my mother had him buried in a cemetery in Bartow, Florida. I decided that after I found my father's family, I wanted him to be moved from the cemetery in Bartow to Geiger Cemetery. I had called the local funeral homes but they were not interested in doing this. In 2008, I talked to Tim Haught, who owned Haught Funeral Home. He checked into the situation and on November 7, 2008 my dad was moved to Geiger Cemetery.|

|LRM||Sarah E. Wiggins|
I transferred the memorial to you, per your request. She is a distant cousin of mine, through the line of my paternal grandmother, Lessie Mae (Taylor) Meadows. Are you related to Sarah? Please let me know if I may of any further assistance to you. I'm originally from Pensacola and have lived in other areas of Florida, close to Bartow and Zephryhills, which are referenced in your profile. Sarah is buried in Babie, AL at the old Bethel Church, where my grandmother's family is buried. Have you visited there? I now live in Colorado.
Have a great day.

Hi, I added a photo of my father Robert Lee Smith and his mother Mariah Metts Smith. The photo of Mariah is a picture of picture that hung in Alva's house. I was with him when he went over to Alva's house and took the picture of the large picture of his mother.
