Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have to add this before my profile: I'm realizing now that I have created duplicate memorials for my ancestors. So, I'd like to apologize to anyone who had previously created the records I duplicated. I jumped into this site without reading the directions or rules very thoroughly! DUH! I think I just naively thought people were only entering their own relatives & ancestors so therefore mine would not be in the database yet. I greatly admire the hard work done by others & am constantly amazed at how many memorials various individuals have created.
I'll do my homework from now on before entering new records!
I first started asking questions about my family's history when I was about 15 years old.
My mother had a great memory & knew details & stories about all her cousins & aunts & uncles and this peaked my interest.
When I was 15 my grandfather, Hiram John Dougherty Latchford, whom I'm named after, took me to meet his cousin, Helen Latchford, who had been doing the Latchford genealogy for decades. She died not too long after our meeting & we inherited all of her research material.
Thirty years later I bought Family Tree Maker & started inputting information. My mother supplied me with dates for many people and the game was on!
I drifted in & out of doing research for years. Now that I'm retired & recently joined, I'm trying to fine tune all the information I have which includes the burial places of many people in my family tree.

RE: Henry A. Mercer
Request complete. By the way, I am not receiving emails that you are leaving me messages. I just checked my page for any edits and saw your messages. Sometimes I think Find A Grave has a mind of its own. Have a good one!

RE: Peddicord & Randle tombstone photos
I had added another picture to Charles' memorial. It shows the whole plot. It might help you find it better. The big celtic cross at the top right can be see from the road when approaching the section.

RE: Peddicord & Randle tombstone photos
Use any photo you would like. The Randles in these plot are distant relations to me. I believe they are in section P. This section is set up in family plots, all blocked off nicely and in neat rows. I am sure I have been in RR. Have you checked my memorials for who you are looking for?
