Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have lived in Memphis for most of my life and have been doing genealogy research on my family for many years. My main research is done on the following families: Van Scoy, Whelpley, Barnes, Overstreet, Justice, Parrish, Johnson, Edmunds, Penn, Curd, and Snoddy.

I work full time, but would be happy to help with pictures from local cemeteries in Memphis and the surrounding suburbs. When I photograph a gravestone, I always take time to take pictures of the graves surrounding the one requested, because often these are relatives. I will post any photos requested in a timely manner.

If I have posted a photograph of your relative that is not in my line, and you would like me to transfer management of the memorial to you, I would be glad to do so. Also, you have my permission to use any photos I provide, as long as you give me credit as a contributor.

RE: Fred E Blood Headstone
You're welcome to use it. The other person listed on his headstone is (I believe) his wife. It definitely looks like Adam, but it's Ada M :) Hopefully that solves the mystery!

Bradshaw Memorial
I thought that might be the case. Yes, I have both of the pictures of John Wesley and his wife. I should tell you, we believe that the picture of Ferril is probably NOT her. It is probably his 2nd wife. We have a picture of his 2nd wife when she was younger, and the facial characteristics are the same. I would suggest removing that picture of her. I am still hunting more information. I have spent several years just on this side of the family and I believe the information is correct. No paper trail other than his marriages of course. The original pictures only say MRS BRADSHAW on the back and we know there are 2. Thanks Randy Bradshaw

John Wesley Bradshaw's Picture
Are you the owner of the picture that you posted for John Wesley Bradshaw? If so, I wonder if you have any others that you could share with me. John Wesley is my GG Uncle and I am always on the hunt for items that are my direct family history. Thanks Randy

Permission granted per the list you provided. Please list the credit for each back to Cathy & Tom, Find A Grave # 47115507. Please contact me again if you find any others.

Thank you for your offer regarding the Memphis area. My 5th great grandmother was buried there, probably in the Winchester Cemetery, which was destroyed in the name of civic progress. This is one of the reasons that we do what we do. Preservation.

RE: A J and Nell Palmer
Your more than welcome. It was actually my grandmother who was friends with Nell. My grandmother was a retired school teacher and I just remember her speaking highly of Nell and how good of friends they were. It truly is a small world.

Merry Christmas

RE: A J Palmer
You are very welcome. I was doing several photos in that cemetery today so it was no problem at all. Once I realized who Mr. Palmer was I went ahead and added a photo for Nell as well. Nell and my Grandmother were very good friends. Yes feel free to use any of my photos as you need. Glad I could help.

Chemung County Poor Farm Cemetery
Breesport, N.Y.

By Sharon Denson

Location: From Breesport, N.Y. and State Route 223, turn right onto Church St. and follow the road to the Chemung Co. Poor Farm. Continue past to the next road on right. Breesport-North Chemung Rd. On the corner sits a marker Chemung County Poor Farm Cemetery. Behind is a large hill mound and the burials circle around the hill. It is quite overgrown. The stones only contain a number and the initials of the person buried there. This is no internment list. The Bureau of Vital Statistics stated that a list existed but was lost in the June 1972 flood. The new Chemung County Nursing Facility and Vital Statistics Office opened just prior to June 1972. Some residents who died at the Poor Farm were buried by family in other cemeteries.
Here is the URL

Sorry I can't be of any more help.

Sondra - I hesitate to transfer as I am related as well - not as close as you thru his mother, Sarah Mangis. You can add pictures at any time.
