Bio and Links
Bio Photo Genealogy is my hobby. It is like being a detective on a case - but a really cold case. Having been a history teacher in another life, I know how precious memories are. These memories give a sense of pride, purpose,and connectedness. I would like to leave an understanding of ancestors to my children and children's children. Not all that is learned is positive and good but it gives us deeper appreciation of our current perception of who and what we are today and what will be shared with future generations. Some of the historical data is being lost to future generations through indirect ignorance and neglect. That is my hobby, it is a small contribution to preserving the past to guide the future.

Grave of William Dickson
I'm working on a third volume of grave locations for veterans of the War of 1812. Could I have your permission to use the picture you posted of William Dickson's grave in this compilation? I will cite you as the source.

Thank you.

Esther Cain Gillis

Thanks so much for the cemetery correction and also linking Frank to Esther. I live in the midwest and wasn't aware of when Frank passed, so thank you for that as well.

I love your bio, it is so well written and so very TRUE.

Thanks again.
