I was raised in Monticello, FL, where my parents and siblings currently reside. Following my retirement from the United States Navy (Submarines), I settled in Hansville, WA - which is rural community across the Puget Sound from Seattle. I enjoy seeing Seattle from a distance, but not actually going there. I suppose I'll always be a small town boy at heart.
I have been researching my family roots, off-and-on, for the last 20 years. Find A Grave is a natural outlet for my interests in this area.
With regards to memorials I have posted, I do not want to be guilty of playing a numbers game. If you are a family member I will gladly transfer the memorial to you when I have completed posting information I have researched. I will also transfer memorials to anyone who has adopted a particular cemetery for research and upkeep. For instance, I recently surveyed the Lamont Walker Cemetery and cleaned most of the headstones before I photographed them. Maybe you are interested in doing the same.
Take time to seek out those small forgotten cemeteries. I know, in the southeastern US, most of the African American cemeteries are almost universally over looked. Since the maintenance of these cemeteries is not up to par with the white cemeteries (usually across the fence) many of the headstones will soon be unreadable.
Billy Hartsfield / walkers cemetery Thank-you for putting Uncle Billy info up and doing the upkeep on walkers cemetery. I just found this and as I live out of state and am disabled I can't believe that they have an angel looking over them GOD BLESS YOU for taking care of my family
Viola Rodgers Jim, Thanks for transferring Viola Rodgers to me, that is kind of you. She was my late husband's grand aunt and the other Rodgers in Emery Cemetery are also his kin. (It is my goal to sponsor as many family members sites as I can, it helps in the support of a worthy organization.) Viola's next older brother was my husband's grandfather. Most all the immediate family is in this cemetery, but not his grandfather. Regards to you and thanks again. Carolyn
Neill Memorials...Walker Cemetery, FL Hello Jim, I am new to FindAGrave and was searching for my parents. I notice you set up their memorials...Ernest Brown Neill and Mary Elizabeth Sever Neill. They are in Walker Cemetary outside of Lamont, FL. I am so thankful that you took on this act of kindness. I would like you to transfer their memorials to me once you are done. I am not sure what you need from me. I am a member now.
Thank you, Martha Neill Williams email@example.com

Tyus family Jim, Thanks for including memorials for this forgotten little family from Lamont, Jefferson Co., FL. I just happened to stumble across some records which indicated that Sallie Tyus, wife of Joshua Nicholson Tyus, was the daughter of Nancy Pollock, a previously "lost" cousin in my family who died while Sallie was just a young girl. Glad you're giving some attention to these little neglected plots. Merry Christmas! -Vance
This is my gggrandmother - she is not buried as a Shiver. She is buried as Dorinda Beville in Sumter County. She divorced Isaac in 1869 and then married Dr. Robert Beville. She was the daughter of Dixon and Rachel McNeese Cross. Her daughters with Isaac were Emma Virginia (Jennie) and Lougenia. Jennie married John Crawford and lived in Leon County and Eugenia Lola who married Benjamin Franklin Zipperer. She is buried in Burnham cemetery. Jennie is most likely buried with John in Wakulla County - grave is unmarked. Thanks.
