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.

After retiring from the AF I was employed by the Drug Enforcement Administration as a Federal Investigator and accountant.

RE: Willam, Mary,and Lucianne George
1. Ah, busy time of year for you then!

2. Thanks. Nice to have the location and photograph!

3. I suppose it should be changed to 1901 since that seems to be the prevailing opinion, but we need a better source. Hopefully we can get a photograph. Have you submitted a request yet? I'd do it, but I've used up my 20 requests for the week.

4. Check this out. If you like it, I think it would be great on his memorial.

RE: William and Mary George
Just realized I forgot to respond to your question about cemetery photos. I'm curious where you saw such a statement. There are currently 861 memorials in Casa Cemetery and over 700 of them currently have photographs attached, so I'm thinking the statement may be inaccurate.

In general, I've never heard anyone say that a cemetery should not be photographed.

RE: William and Mary George
I should get to Florence Elizabeth George in the next month or so. My current effort on FindAGrave is to locate and connect all the memorials for the descendants of John Prescott & Hester Bennett Brooke. There are many thousands, so it's a bit of a slow process. I've just started working on Littleton & Narsissus Edwards descendants and have a few other branches to explore before detailing the children of William & Mary, but I'll eventually get there and will let you know what I find. Thanks for your quick response and the nice notes you left on their memorials! :-)

RE: Ruby Lois Bell
I am Ruby Lois Bell's (born Wallin) grandson. The connection between Ruby and Emma Lou Maxey Bell (Memorial# 124689517) is that both women were married to Olcie Lee Bell (Memorial# 351055). The husband and wife plots were originally purchased for Emma and himself, but Emma passed away first in 1958. Olcie thereafter married my grandmother Ruby (formally Falconer). When Ruby passed away in 1979, I don't think he had any money used his personal plot for the burial. 6 years later, Olcie Bell passed away. As he was a in the Army during WWI, Olice Bell was awarded a military burial. His grave is located at the National Memorial Cemetery of Arizona, Phoenix.

RE: Martha Goldsmith
Yes, Thomas Benson of Scotland Co., MO married Martha S. Miers of the same county in 1867. She died in 1933, location unknown, perhaps living with a daughter in Colorado at the time. Martha Goldsmith appeared in the 1870 census in Dunklin Co., MO, born ca. 1855, Tennessee. Some family trees show her death in 1919. I can't confirm anything about her after 1870. However, Martha S. Benson appears in later census records showing that she was born in Missouri, 1843. There are photographs of the the Miers sisters (Sarah Cowell, Martha Benson, and Arminta Bartlett attached several family trees. I'll let you know if I find any clues as to post-1870 location of Martha S. Goldsmith.
