Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been involved in genealogy since 1979. I am willing to help out in the Central New York area.

Harlan, my lab and border collie mix, loves to help me walk through cemeteries. She has made some good finds, too!

I have been thankful for so many volunteers, especially in the areas where my father's side lived. I have been able to find great information!

Token you left for Traci Fields
Thank you very much for the token you left for my angel daughter Traci. She was a wonderful gift from GOD, and she's in my heart and mind every single day. Her passing has left major holes in the hearts of her family and friends.

I appreciate you helping to reach my goal of 5,000 tokens by her birthday, November 20th. Actually, thanks to you and other findagravers, so far today Traci has received 6,026 flowers/tokens. That makes my family and I extremely happy. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

I'm thankful and blessed for your kindness. GOD bless you for your heavenly heart.

I am so overwhelmed with all the findagrave friends requesting flowers/tokens for my Traci. Thank you ever so much!

This is something I wrote for Traci:

It was a cold, quiet night at the cemetery. The snow was falling gently to the ground. The only sound that could be heard was the whistling of the wind. Off in the distance I suddenly heard the tiny sound of jingling bells. I looked around and wondered where the life was in the stillness of this cemetery.

As I gazed around, I saw a ray of moonbeam shining down on a small Christmas tree.

I thought to myself, "This is where the life is in the cemetery!"

Ring the bells this holiday season in memory of those you love.

RE: Lyle Lindquist
I am not related. I just volunteer for Find a Grave and live close to the Arlington Cemetery. I have taken all of the photos of the headstones two years ago and am back bringing the cemetery current.
Many Blessing!

RE: James Madison and Mary Louisa Baggs Smith
yes I believe I do and I will update you when I get that info dug out of my files. Cecil Calder Garrason has been doing our family genealogy for over 40 years and he did the entire garrasons and a lot of Baxters and Smiths.

Mrs. Shepperd,
Would you also be willing to transfer Sarah #44939881 to me? If not could you correct the date of death to Sept.12,1884. I have posted a pic of headstone that shows date.

Etta & Jesse Cloud
Hi, I saw your note regarding Jesse Walker Cloud on your photo request for Etta, in the Old Albemarle Cemetery. Jesse is indeed buried adjacent to Etta. I'm uploading the photos for you momentarily.

Sincerely, Rodney

Duplicate memorials
Please delete the duplicate memorials that you created for the Woolley's at Arlington National Cemetery -- I have sent you edit corrections for these. Please delete them, so that we don't have to bother findagrave admins to do it for you.

Glad to be of help. I live a distance from my father's family and without volunteers, I would not have some of the photos I have. Let me know of any way I can be of help.
