Bio and Links
Bio Photo My hobbies are woodworking, genealogy and fishing. I have been working on genealogy since 1983. I am currently working on 18 different genealogies. I have been a member of "Find a Grave" since Oct 2009.

Lives are commemorated, deaths are recorded, families are reunited,
Memories are made tangible, and love is undisguised; This is a cemetery.
Communities accord respect, families bestow reverence, Historians seek information and our heritage is thereby enriched.
Testimonies of devotion, pride and remembrance are cast in bronze to pay warm tribute to accomplishments and life, not the death of a loved one,
The cemetery is homeland for memorials
that are a sustaining source of comfort to the living.
A cemetery is a history of people
A perpetual record of yesterday and a sanctuary of peace and quiet today.
A cemetery exists because every life is worth loving and remembering - always.....

"The following statement is my written permission that any photo I take(per request of another party on FAG),or (those I personally contributed (grave/photos)that I may have added of others or family members) can be used without futher permission from me, as long as it in an appropriate and decent content and for family and/or genealogy purposes. I would appreciate my name be shown on photo."

Now that you've read my profile, you may also want to make sure that your own profile is up to date. You can update it now.
Happy Hunting,

RE: Currie Memorials
We probably have the same data. I've been doing this for about 20 years. I am a Currie by birth and am a direct descendant of John "Jack" & Nancy Johnson Currie.

I sent the correction on Archie's place of birth, because he gave Kennard as his place of birth on his WWI Draft Registration Record.

I'm sure we will continue running across one another as we are working to connect all of the family members possible.

Thanks so much!

Currie Memorials
Are you related to the four Curries that you have management of? I am a direct descendant of John "Jack" Currie m. Nancy Johnson, as are almost all of the Curries in San Jacinto, Houston, Polk and Robertson Counties. I was wondering where you fit into the tree.

I am sorry for your loss. You are very welcome for the pictures. My sister and I were at the cemetery today finishing up pictures and documents for Becks Chapel. I am so glad we could help so there is a picture of the fresh flowers.

RE: Allen H. Council Photo
You're very welcome.

I'm glad your family is pleased; and I'm happy to be of service.

You may ... of course ... use the photo in your family tree; however, I would appreciate being mentioned as the source, whenever the photo is used.

RE: Terry Cotton
Thanks for the link. I'm not related. I had just posted Wilma's memorial and was trying to take care of whatever links could be made.

Abner T Smalley
I will be tied up today, taking a friend to the doctor. I sent you a little present. I didn't call him Abner, as I suspect the cemetery record just calls him Abner, as the person who knew where he is buried just called him Abner, etc, and others aren't calling him Abner T. Smalley.

I did quote you "inside" the memorial and called him Abner T. Smalley there. I do that sort of thing so I don't confused the photographers. (I did make a picture request.) They might not assume that Abner is the same person as Abner T. Smalley, but the way I have written the memorial, they may look for the name BOTH ways.
I can already see that the Smalley people came from Virginia. My Hemphills came from Pennsylvania. I will get back to you later, must start getting ready to take my friend to his appointment.
Have a fun day.
