Genealogy research has long been a passion of mine (at least since 1978 or thereabouts). When I retired in 2002 after 31 years of service with a major Texas police department, GENEALOGY was close to the top of my retirement bucket list. Now working again, I'm involved in property management and development (we take old, usually vacant, downtown bldgs and restore them turning them into something useful while maintaining their historical integrity), but I still make time to dabble in genealogy.

A latecomer to Find A Grave, I joined in 2011 and I've enjoyed it ever since. The exercise I get from walking cemeteries and the sense of fulfillment I recieve from responses to the photos are both priceless.

With the exception of members of our immediate family, I am willing to transfer memorials in response to requests conforming to F.A.G. policy. I am human and make mistakes; if you note an error on one of my memorials or spot a duplicate, please notify me immediately and I'll take corrective action accordingly.

RE: RE John Q. Adams
I just sent his parent's numbers to the manager of his memorial so that she can link them. Thanks so much.

RE: RE John Q. Adams
You are awesome. Thank you so much. Quincy had a son that died in a motorcycle crash in the 1960's. I only knew him by Dutch. He was close to my age and we were both in our teens. Quincy felt that because of an arrest he had made that Dutch was purposefully hit by a motorist. Quincy never let go of that. After Dutch's death, Quincy and his wife, Oleta, were divorced. He remarried and was happy until his death.

Again, thank you so much for your help. I will cherish the information you provided.

Submission of Edits
I know this must seem like I'm picking on you, but that is not my intention. Would you please use the "Edit" tab and fill in the information you would like added regarding links, dates, and places. The use of this feature drastically cuts down on the amount of errors, since you will see exactly what is being added before you hit "submit". Also, I a parent cannot be linked to a child from the parent's memorial. That needs to be done through the child's memorial. I hope this information helps you.

Please read my profile page before making requests for relatives that are out of guidelines. You even have on your profile page something to the effect that "I am willing to transfer memorials in response to requests conforming to F.A.G. policy." As you know, the policy is 4 generations of direct relationship.

If you have information to add to his memorial, I will be happy to update his memorial.

Loretta "Rettie" Pierce Alexander
I'm getting the same answer as you from folks trying to find a gravestone for her in the Johnson City Highland Cemetery.It does seem logical that since she spent most of her life in Johnson City that she would be buried there.Her sister "Addie" [Mrs. J.B. Worley on her death certificate] also lived in Johnson City, but the Worley clan are buried in Oak Hill Cemetery in Johnson City.Rettie's mother Mary, her brother, Stant and sister Virginia are all buried in the Highland Cemetery in Elizabethton where she was born. I have managed to get two of Rettie's children's memorials connected to hers. I just found her at age 63 in the 1920 census living with her husband Wilber Alexander in Greene County. Living right next door are James William Douthat and wife Barbara Elizabeth Bible. William was the grandson of James Pierce and Carmaline Wilcox.Best regards, Dale

Loretta Alexander
I believe that the Highland Cemetery that she's in is the Carter County one - she is not at Highland Church of Christ in Hales Chapel (Wash Cty). Loretta's mother is in the Carter County one, so would seem logical. I don't do surveying in Carter County, so I don't have those records. Hope this helps. Thanks, Gordon

I entered a photo of Mary Underhill Cushman’s headstone in the Needhamville Cemetery in Fort Ann, NY. It was taken about 1974or1975.

Henry McElroy Parker (San Jacinto Memroial)
I have uploaded a picture of Henry's marker to his memorial page. Elizabeth Tommie Hill Parker was next to him. I did not find a memorial page for her. When I replied to your last email with copies of the pictures it was returned. If you send me a current email address I'll be glad to send you all the pictures.
