|Bio and Links|
I was first introduced to FindAGrave through Ancestry.com when doing research for a photo book I was working on covering the ancestors and descendents of hy husband's parents. Several volunteers throughout the US took photos for me to use in my book. I was so overwhelmed, I became a volunteer and am determined to "pay it forward" in any way I can. What better way for a senior to enjoy the fresh air, get exercise and at the same time do something productive with their time! On beautiful days, I set out with my camera and head for a cemetery. If I make any errors please do not hesitate to let me know. I will gladly transfer any memorials to family members.|
Having just read very disturbing posts on the Find A Grave Forum site, I feel compelled to make an addition to my profile. When I take pictures of headstones, I am doing this for the family members of the person for whom the memorial was created. I am not doing this for personal gain. If anyone wants to use the pictures I have taken to add to their Ancestry.com family tree, please feel free to do so. I do not consider them MY pictures. I thought the purpose of this site was for the sharing of information for now and in the future. I want my photos to be found!!!
The fact that other "volunteers" feel enraged that their pictures are "stolen" is frankly beyond my comprehension.

I saw when you claimed them and was surprised to see the others there. Thank you for contacting the other individual. They may be new and unfamiliar with what a "claim" on a photo means.
At any rate.. Thank You, once again, for the great work you do. I appreciate it very much! :)

The transfer of Jesse Batten is greatly appreciated.

Thank you for the headstone photo for Jasper Purser Hixson and spouse Octa B Hixson.
You are right, sorry. I meant Ertie was John's husband. Ertie & Gertie were twins and they were both married to Hockins brothers. I also take photos and it is difficult when there is no headstone. I appreciate your time and work. Peggy

Thanks so much for searching. And thanks for taking the photo for John Ray Hockins, who was Gertie's husband. Good work. Peggy
