Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am an avid amateur genealogist, researching many different lines for both family and friends. I include all collateral lines, so my area of interest is extensive.

I have added many memorials in the hope of helping a fellow researcher. Permission is granted for personal use of any of the photos I have added, please just cite the F.A.G. memorial number and cite me as the photographer. This includes - it's so disappointing to look at a public family tree and find one of my photographs without mention of the photographer.

I decline to give permission to use my photos for resale, for profit, or to upload to a different web site. Do not copy them to other grave related sites such as

Since you are creating a record of the cemetery in addition to photographing a single stone you should take several images of the same marker. For example:

1. One showing the whole cemetery.

2. Shoot an image that includes the closest stones and provides context.

3. Photograph the whole gravestone so that inscription and carving are visible.

4. Make sure to take at least one picture where the inscription fills the camera frame.

Unless you are extremely lucky, most of the stones you want to photograph will not be straight due to ground settling. In the case of leaning stones, tilting the camera should eliminate the slant."

Our greatest treasure is our family, not only the warm circle around the Christmas tree, but all those whose lives gave us life, and those who will carry our love into the future. ~ Anonymous

It avails not, neither time or place—distance avails not;
I am with you, you men and women of a generation, or ever so
many generations hence;
I project myself—also I return—I am with you, and know how it is.

Just as you feel when you look on the river and sky, so I felt;
Just as any of you is one of a living crowd, I was one of a crowd;
Just as you are refresh'd by the gladness of the river and the bright flow,
I was refresh'd... ~ "Crossing Brooklyn Ferry" by Walt Whitman

Perform, then, this one act of remembrance before this Day passes - Remember there is an army of defense and advance that never dies and never surrenders, but is increasingly recruited from the eternal sources of the American spirit and from the generations of American youth. -W.J. Cameron

For death is no more than a turning of us over from time to eternity. ~William Penn

Those we hold closest to our hearts never truly leave us. They live on in the kindness they have shared and the love they brought into our lives. -Author Unknown


Perhaps they are not stars in the sky, but rather openings where our loved ones shine down to let us know they are happy. -Anonymous

Travis E & Elizabeth Catherine Pate Windrow
Personna, for your information

With reference to a photo request I received for Elizabeth Catherine Pate Windrow. I spoke with a Windrow family member and to her knowledge and my search in the Triune Cemetery, we do not believe Elizabeth Catherine Pate Windrow is buried in Triune Cemetery. She told me Elizabeth married a Dyer after the death of Travis E. Windrow who is buried in the Windrow Community Cemetery. She also stated Windrow Community cemetery in not in the best of condition and some markers are very hard to find or read.

There were two more children born to Travis E. Windrow and Elizabeth Catherine Pate Windrow. I have linked John Carson Windrow, b. July 9,1860, d. May 18, 1944; buried Triune Cemetery, married Sara Elizabeth Glenn. The other son was James Travis Windrow, b. May 1, 1862, d, May 4, 1941, burial unknown.

Sorry, I am researching and working on a bio for father, mother, and his brother Byars Windrow, and had forgotten I had made a previous request. He keeps turning up in my research. Sorry to disturb.

Thanks for getting back to me on Travis E.W. Windrow. I understand your wanting to hold on to him. I am not directly related to him, but my direct line comes from his sister, Indiana Windrow Jackson.

Thanks for all you do by adding these Memorials. I know the time and preparation it takes. You are really appreciated. Would you mind transferring Marshall's Memorial to me. I manager his Father's (my great uncle) and am in the process of getting all the relatives connected in F.A.G. Thank you so much. Barbara
