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.

Charles H. Edmunds
I wonder about the date of death. The will of Charles Penn Edmunds was written in 1883 and in the will he made a bequest to Charles H. Edmunds.

RE: Raymond Stiba
I agree with you..... I saw this on FB also.... and agree, that they come from all over and should have been destroyed. Just hoping there is a marker for this person in the cemetery where he is buried. Hopefully someone close to there can find it - I would just leave it for now, if you'd like.

Thank you for your military service!!!

RE: Raymond Stiba and Morrie Standish
I believe the stones Were stolen. Check memorials for some of the other stones that appear in Ed's pictures: #25210303, 84866824, 50219102.
All of these stones are identical and they are clearly in a cemetery. My father was also a veteran of WWII and if his stone appeared in someone's stairway or other home decoration, I would go to their house and remove it and I wouldn't be very friendly about it either. I found the photos of the stairs to be a disgrace. I don't want you to be harassed by your decision to post these photos since this is a very controversial situation. Of course it is your privilege, however, I personally wouldn't have chosen to do that. I only post pictures that I have taken.

I was wondering about those 2 veterans photos, are you aware that these stones were removed from the cemeteries and used to make a patio by some crackpot in Ozark County Missouri? I noticed that you added these photos to Find A Grave.

While I appreciate you adding this picture - I know it was NOT TAKEN at the cemetery where he is buried. I have put in another request for someone to take a photo of his site and stone as it is today in the cemetery. There is some info out there that the picture you loaded here is of a discarded stone. Just trying to confirm that.

RE: Crittenden Moss and Sarah Frances
You are more than welcome and I thank you for your offer. I don't know of any relatives in Memphis, but you never know who is going to turn up next.

Happy New Year...Babs
