|Bio and Links|
My name is Sharron Nixon Carroll and I have been working on family history for about ten years. I love old cemeteries and visit as often as possible. This site is a marvel and I am excited about helping add information and pictures to share with others.|
It is my belief that these memorials should be a celebration of the lives these people have lived and not just a record of where and when they died. As such, I would request that death certificates not be added to the memorials I manage. I try to connect memorials to parents and spouses. I use death certificates as a tool but I would rather have pictures of the individuals as well as their markers and stories about their lives.
If you have something to share, let me know. If it is your relative and you have more information about them than I do, I will be happy to transfer them to you.
In my opinion, Find A Grave should not be about the number of memorials you can collect or post, but the quality you can add to each memorial in order to make Find A Grave the best free family history site on the web. To those people who work diligently to record cemeteries across America, I say God bless and greatly appreciate all your hard work. I truly and thankfully recognize the time and effort you have put into this project.
Through it, as you find and connect individuals to their parents, you follow the migration of the families across America. The research you have to do in order to make the connections helps to tell you their stories.

I have just read through the memorial you created for him, well done and thank you for your efforts...from the Leannah Mynatt Hallmark line.
I have made the corrections so you can delete your post of Tomas Looney.

Might this be the same individual as in memorial 8343282 Thomas G "Tom" Looney?
You show a death date that is one day off the date shown on the headstone on that memorial and you show the burial state (only the state, the rest is the same) as Alabama, rather than Tennessee.
I am trying to connect his father, William Carroll Looney (1842-1920) to my tree. I am certain there is a connection; "William Carroll" is a common name in my tree, as is the name he gave one of his sons, "Absalom David."

Sharron, I will assume that you are related to William. I am trying to do some research for a person in Austin. Can you tell me if your William was actually Wilhelm and did he drown in the Corpus Christi Bay. Thank you, Jim
Sharron, please let me know how you are related to the Webbs, you need to include this when requesting a transfer.

I just placed a photo of this lady's headstone on the memorial that you created. She is indeed buried in this cemetery! Bad news is that her headstone (and, I presume, that of her husband) is displaced in the cemetery.
Note: This Headstone is NOT in the main portion of the cemetery. There are a number of displaced headstones that are neatly lined up along the back of the cemetery. This one is one of those.

|Leon Edmund Basile||RE: James Richard Carroll obit|
Thank you for your kind message. You certainly can use the obituary in your ancestry site. It originally appeared in the CONFEDERATE VETERAN, Vol. 29, No. 7 (July 1921), page 270.
