Bio and Links
Although I've been using Find-A-Grave for searches for years, I've just recently become a member.

I was born/raised in Montana and have spent the last several years in Florida. All my life I've wanted to know about my ancestors but have not been able to find any info. This past summer, I unexpectedly found myself in Arkansas. I was shocked to find that the family I had been searching for all those years came from Arkansas! Thanks in part to Find A Grave, I was able to locate additional information and finally view the resting places of so many of my ancestors.

I am no professional photographer or researcher, I just want to get some information out there to help other people like myself find what they are looking for and maybe find some peace as I have.

UPDATE: I have found my way back home to Montana, and would be happy to help anyone who needs info from Missoula or Ravalli counties.

Hope Cemetery Photo
Thanks for the photo of the tombstone for Fred Dye MYERS. For some reason he was listed as simply Fred DYE in the Hope Cemetery inventory. Now I see his last name was Myers. Thank you!

RE: Lance Alley birthdate
Hi- I was going by the 1895 Kansas state census, where it shows Lance to be 2 months old. I agree with you, I have found many, many errors even in official documents such as SSDI and WWI Draft registrations! I am related to Lance, but very distantly through the Alleys (4th cousin, 3x removed). I was tickled to get his middle name from your obituary for him. Keep up the good work! -Sheryl

RE: Thank you
Trish,

You just brought tears to my eyes and a rush to my heart. It is so surprising to me how one's words can affect another person without you ever knowing it. I have had so many wonderful Find A Grave members tell me the same as you, the words of my bio touched them deeply. When I wrote it, I was simply trying to get on paper why I so despartely needed this site and to try everyday to show my gratitude for having found it by forging ahead with my life and making sure another day did not pass that I didn't work on finding out from who and where I came. I also wanted to help others by adding info of their loved ones that I happened across along the way. Thank you for your kind words and I wish you joy, love and happiness along your travels in finding your loved ones of the past.
Your Find A Grave Cuz, sj
