Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have always loved to visit cemeteries and thought it was a little weird until I found this website. Visiting a cemetary satisfies many of my favorite hobbies: plants ( Whenever I go, I walk around watering plants that people leave for their loved ones but are unable to come back and take care of), photography, and history. I especially like to visit old cemeteries to take pictures of the elaborate monuments. I'm really happy to discover there are thousands of you out there that feel the same.

I try to put as much information as I can find on the internet with each memorial and also try to include the source. Feel free to use any pictures of headstones and grave markers that I have uploaded on your family websites or Ancestry,com.

Every man's life is a fairy tale written by God's fingers. ~ Hans C. Andersen

Eula Weston Deaton
Hi Sonia, I love your memorial for Eula--it is so interesting! You have on there that her parents are George and Margaret, correct? I believe they are buried in the same cemetery but their birthdates are after Eula's birth. Are you sure they are her parents? Maybe some dates are wrong somewhere?
