Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been working on my Genealogy since 1979. I am addicted to it and will continue until I can no loger hold a pen. To know who we are, we need to know where we came from.

I currently live in Maine, and occasionally we go back to North Carolina. My families are all from New England, and my husbands are from Maryland to North Carolina and all points in between.

I am more than happy to transfer memorials I have created to descendants of the person memorialized. I also welcome information to complete memorials, so family can find them. I do volunteer lookups and photo in my area. I think information about our families should always be free, and love findagrave for keeping this site free. I also do transcriptions for two family history groups who also keep their sites free.

RE: Inez Bemis
Thanks for the quick correction. The Bemis's are not a part of my family, so no transfer. Thanks again!

RE: Nickerson
My mother was born a Nickerson.
May I ask, who are your aunts & uncles of which you speak of in your message, please?

RE: Alice Lankford
Thank you. Since graveyard info is not always correct, and since Find A Grave info is now linked to, I think it's important to keep info as accurate as possible on Find A Grave using info other than that shown on the stones. So, I send corrections/explanation to include on memorials as I encounter it. Thank you for including the info.

Information Question.
Did you receive transfer request to go to Account#48590898 within the past couple of weeks?
The Account# had a name, now says Anonymous.
Any information you can provide would be most helpful.

Ann Margaret (Heartz) Duffy
Hi Brenda,
Thank you for the additional information regarding Ann. I've run into a discrepancy with the year of birth. The Prince Edward Island Baptismal records states she was born Aug 4 1808 (which would match the inscription on the headstone) and that she was baptized on Aug 21 1808. Father's name: Martin Hearts / Mother's name: Ann Margaret Dawson.

Does that match with the information that you have?

I've noticed a lot of cemetery changes with the new Find A Grave under Ancestry so bet we see lots more changing of cemeteries and all! Glad it all got worked out :)

Richard Labree XFER
Brenda -
Thanks for transferring Richard Labree to me. I've sent him along to Peter Smith who is much more the Labree expert than I am and will do a better job than me of updating the information on the memorial. Your help and cooperation is much appreciated.

Harriet and James Collins
Hi Brenda!
Just noticed that you have two memorials for a couple...Harriet and James Collins...that you manage...they share a stone and there are photos on both memorials...problem is you have them in two different cemeteries and then there is one more problem I found...burial list on Cemetery Census shows them in another cemetery known as Fulk Family Cemetery which is located off Boyd Nelson Rd, Pinnacle, Surry Co., NC....the two cemeteries you have them in are Fulk-Denny and then Fulk-McKinney. These are very confusing I know as I've been looking for relatives in them as well lol...the memorial numbers are Harriet 60526666 and for James 47646490. I'm going to leave it to you to figure out which one to add them both to as I'm sure of one thing...they are in the same place! Good luck ;-) Just wanted to give you a heads up
