First of all, let's get this out of the way ... PERMISSION: If you are intending to use my photos for commercial gain, FORGET IT! If you are just using my photos to be part of your own family tree(s) knock yourself out with my blessings. I am a 68 yo Viet Nam era Veteran of the US Navy who retired in 2008 after 30 years of federal service working for the Departments of Navy and Defense. Started working my family genealogy 4 years ago and has a lot of catching up to do. I have found treasure troves of information from very friendly people and very distant relatives. I also have found out how fun history can be as I have found in my family tree, a possible Signer of the Mayflower Pact, several patriots who fought in the Revolution and several who fought in the Civil War on both sides of the conflict, possible very distant relations to the Spanish Throne, a "lady" to an early English king, amoungst the riff and the raff. I'm finding that it is easier to find and sort information on those who are long dead than those that have died in the 20th and 21st centuries. I lost my mother in 2004 and she is buried with my father at the Fort Bayard National Cemetery, New Mexico, as is her next younger brother and his spouse. I had not been back to the cemetery to check the headstone since the internment and needed a way to see them ... FindAGrave.com is perfect. And no, I am not related to pretty much everyone who's headstone photo I have taken, at least that I know of. I am also doing indexing for the LDS Family Search program with over 65000 lines indexed since I started in October 2010. Now that will sometimes blank your eyes and cross your mind. :^)|

Thank you, Jerry for taking the time to make a picture of the headstone of Mrs. Swofford. I have been in a large cemetery like this one, and I know how daunting it can be looking for a grave.

Thank you very much for these photos, and also for pinpointing the grave location in the cemetery as well - this will be a great help to extended family who want to actually visit the gravesite at some future date. Very best regards !

Jerry Thomas: Thanks very much for posting the pictures of the markers for Howell H. Abrams. Howell was my mother's youngest brother and my favorite uncle.
I grew up in NE Mississippi (Amory) as did he. I looked forward to Howell coming home to visit his parents. Could always count on an adventure of some kind. He took me on my first motorcycle ride and my first plane ride. Both activities were important to me in my life and in my 70s the latter still is. (http://www.oh2fly.net)
Again, thanks very much and
