Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello everyone,

I have been tracing my family roots for many years now and am grateful each time I find another link or family member.

I care about families and helping. If I have a loved one of yours and you would like that person transferred, please use the edit button (upper right hand side) and tell me how you are related and we'll go from there.

Please do NOT post death certificates on any of my memorials!

Also, if you leave an inappropriate message here, I will delete it without hesitation. I do not believe in anyone having the right to leave messages that are negative and nor would I do so on anyone else's profile page.

Any photographs I take of headstones are free to use EXCEPT for profit.

Also, if I do make a mistake and duplicate someone's memorial, I will absolutely remove it. All I ask is for you to be polite about it. I'm volunteering here same as you all are and everyone makes mistakes; none of us are perfect, only the Good Lord himself and his son, Jesus.

J. L. Alexander ID #133601650
I found his obituary on line and used the information in it to update information on his memorial and to find the ID #'s for his parents. I added edits for them to his memorial.

Can you tell me where you got the information he is buried in Lawn Haven Cemetery, Clovis, NM? I was over there looking for them to fulfill a photo request. I did not find them where they are listed as being buried and the lady there could not find them listed in her book or on her computer.

Nancy Ann Gossett Hallmark 113781116
Are you related to Nancy Hallmark? I recently received a picture of her Grandfather Roy Gossett and his siblings. While I am related, I am not a direct relative and would love to get this picture to one of them. Thanks for any help you can give me.

Carolyn K. Wilkerson memorial...
You put a photo of Ethan Andrew Brister's marker on the memorial for Carolyn K. Wilkerson (ID # 7279500). I put her marker on there today.

You created memorial ID # 112401695 on June 6, 2013 for him. There was already an earlier memorial (ID # 16968614) created for him on December 9, 2006. The earlier memorial contains a lot more information.

Mary Ann Smith
ID # 104922710.

You list Charles Smith who was born in 1915 as her son. She would have been 11 in 1915.

In Charles' obituary, it says he was born in South Dakota in 1915 and came to Clovis in 1946.

Charles Roy Smith, Sr.
His ID # is 104905530. I found his obituary on I sent an edit for his year of birth. It is 1892 on his grave marker.

I still need to know how you want me to send you the obituary for Frances Smith.

Mixed up gravestone & cemetery
Dear Tricia:
In searching for Robert Neal Smith on, I was amazed to find that two of them were born and died on the very same days, and that both were interred in Portales Cemetery in NM! After reading the info for Robert Neal Smith(#111468690), I realized that he was actually buried in Tennessee, but somehow on the header, Portales was listed.

The person I was searching for also has the very same name, but he is listed as Neal Smith (#26863674), and all the information is accurate, as far as I know. However, I suspect that Neal Smith's gravestone is displayed on Robert Neal Smith's (of Pocahontas, Tennessee)obit, since Neal Smith's birth name is also Robert Neal Smith. In Neal Smith's obit, it mentions he served in the Navy/Air Force, but no mention is made of Robert Neal Smith of TN serving in the military, except on the gravestone shown on his page. And, no gravestone is shown on Neil Smith's findagrave page.

Well, I hope I haven't confused you too much, here. Thank you for your time and trouble.
