Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello,
I was born in up-state New York. I was born a VanWinkle, but shortly after I was born my parents divorced. My mother remarried, and my Mother's new husband adopted me, which changed my last name to Bump. I continue to look for my biological family who I have never met. My mother told my bits and pieces about them, so I do have a little to work with.
I am married to my wonderful husband, and have two children, and 4 grandchildren.
I appreciate Find A Grave, they all have helped me in putting my pieces together about my family.
God Bless you all,

RE: William.VanWinkle...
Hi Linda :
Hey Houston! We've got a problem....I just went to add a picture to your Uncles memorial only to discover there are 2 memorials up for him.
Yours was the 1st one put up so my question is ...
Do I add pictures to BOTH memorials or to just yours ??? Last I knew-it was a no-no according to Find A graves rules/regs to have duplicates up so I'll leave it up to you as to what you want to do.In the meantime-I will be emailing you all of the pictures taken of both your Dads & Uncles stones....

RE: William.VanWinkle...
Hi Linda:
You are so very welcome for the pictures of your Dads stone. That one was a toughie for me to do,especially after reading the message you left for him as it pulled on my heart strings :( I will be making a trip to Maine this summer & getting a picture of my Dads military stone to add to his memorial I have up for him. I haven't been back home to get a picture of his stone since they took it out to my Moms home & I can't put in a request for a picture because its on private property & my Mom is adapt to give whoever a lashing w/her cane if she catchs someone on her property w/out having her permission :-)Let me know when you put in your request for your Uncle & I'll get it posted for you as well.
Have a great day,
