|Bio and Links|
Like many Find-a Grave volunteers, I have had a life-long fascination with the people of our past, whether long past or recent past. I grew up on a farm and spent countless days exploring a pioneer cemetery hidden in a forest on our farm.|
I feel both at ease and exhilarated when I walk through a cemetery: Who were these people? What were their lives like? What were their hopes and dreams? What were their obstacles? These are the thoughts that consume me every time I walk through a cemetery.
I have a special affection for neglected cemeteries and am thrilled at the notion that I might be able to find and photograph an inscription restoring the memory of a life long forgotten.
I spent most of my adult life in the aircraft maintenance field and the aerospace industry in general. I enjoyed a 37 year career in the military and I am now retired. I have a deep interest in international affairs, national security, and the defense of our country.
I love to travel, meet new people, and enjoy good conversation. My passion is genealogy; that is how I became a Find a Grave volunteer. My Find a Grave activities will always be secondary to my genealogical interests, but I will always be glad to take time to take a photograph for someone who doesn't live near the cemetery in question.
You will see by my Find a Grave contributions that I have posted several photographs from New England states....you can request a photo from that area and I will see what I have, but I live over 1,000 miles away from New England so I won't be able to routinely fill requests from that area unless I already have one on file.
I live in southern Middle Tennessee and will gladly do what I can within a reasonable distance of my home

|Johnny A. Mc Laughlin||Clear Creek Cemetery in Arkansas|
I have added the information to H. S. Porter that you requested. I stopped by the Clear Creek Cemetery early in the spring this year. I took a photo of as many markers as I could find. I have a lot of relatives buried there, but most either did not have markers, or they have been lost in time. Thank you so very much for the information and photo. To me, the information about a person is the most important thing to have. Thanks again.
