Bio and Links
Genealogy is a pay-it-forward thing. I can never repay the people who have so generously shared family-history materials with me. I can only pay it forward and help other people. Find-a-grave operates on this principle. I particularly enjoy the online community of folks who all understand this concept.

Feel free to reuse any photos that I contributed-- no credit needed. If other members have placed photos on my memorials, ask them for permission before reusing.

I often research my memorials and post bios. These are intended for the casual reader who may not have the time, skills or resources to research. My bios are not a "record" and are not a substitute for serious research. If the memorial is important to you, please independently verify my research.

Please do not lift and post my find-a-grave bios on or other places on the Internet. These bios are subject to change as new records may surface.

I approve edits only if I can document the information. If you send an edit, I may ask you to provide documentation.

Please do not post documents or images of newspaper obituaries on my memorials. I prefer to transcribe obituaries to the bio section. As for documents, in most cases these are easily found online, and don't need to be posted on findagrave.

RE: Louisa Brown photo request
Sorry about that. I did run across a Joseph H Brown a lot or two over who lived from 1812-1898. Could he be a relative?

Parents of Archibald Taylor's wife, Mary
I am a direct descendant of Archibald Taylor whose memorial you have written on Find A Grave. You state that Mary Mcdonald, his wife,parents names were Duncan and Catherine Fraser Mcdonald. I was wondering what your source was for that info. To the best of my knowledge, they were Duncan & Christy who settled in Sunny Brae, NS circa 1801. There were two Duncan Mcdonalds on the ship that arrived from Glen Urquhart but Catherine Fraser is not the mother of the Mary who m. Archibald Taylor.

Hello Amy,
I think that you are the one that I was thinking of. I have kept a printed up email that you sent me back in 2011 about Delancy and his parents and also about his wife's your ancestor disappeared with all that money.
You also sent me a photo of your farm house in Leeds.
Is this you?

RE: Salmon Brewster
I either found it in an auction, Likely, or in a historical society nearby. Either way it came with the provenance provided and usuallly I make sure the source is there.

RE: Shepards in Alvado
I did not find a stone for Erle Shepard. It may be missing. Doug Downing created the memorial for him.

if you write a bio, you can send it through the edit button the same way you did before. I can make sure to give you credit for the bio
