Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am new to Find A Grave and discovered it when my Mother passed away in December 2012. She was always doing Genealogy in some form or another as long as I can remember. She used to drag me to old cemeteries for hours on end when I was just a girl. My brother has followed in her footsteps and is now keeping her legacy going. I never really understood my Mom's love of spending time in cemeteries until now. I have started taking some photos and wandering around cemeteries and I find this to be very peaceful and rewarding when I find that gravestone that someone is requesting. I am thankful to be able to contribute to this endeavor and I am even more thankful for this activity that makes me feel close to my wonderful and amazing mother.

William Campbell

Thanks for your efforts in searching for the stone for William Campbell. It was installed well over a hundred years ago, so it should be no surprise that some stones that age would be missing now. Thank you for looking. Rod Campbell Mackler

Thank you again for your efforts in taking photos of the gravestones for my cousins, Lucy Goodall and David Henley Russell Campbell. I really like the one with the hands shaking and inscription: Father & Mother. Great pictures. Many thanks. Rod Campbell Mackler

RE: David Campbell, 1781-1841
Thanks, again, Stephanie. It does look like a lovely place, full of Campbells, my people. You'll be seeing a couple of more requests -- it would have made your job easier if I have put them all in initially -- apologies. I think this takes care of the Campbells, but if you see something else there on the ground, I'd appreciate your letting me know. I am particularly confused about William Bowen Campbell, 1871-1898; I have a couple of other people by that name in my tree, but these names are recycled. (I'm a case in point.) I'll be making Find A Grave suggestions to link the folks, as well. Many thanks for your efforts -- they are appreciated. Rod Campbell Mackler (

David Campbell, 1781-1841

Thank you so much for the photo of the stone for my kinsman, David Campbell. The photo shows well the extensive inscriptions. I don't think I've seen before a stone with a marriage date on it. This David Campbell is the son of Judge David Campbell, founder of Campbell's Station, near Knoxville. Many thanks. Rod Campbell Mackler

Dee Winter
Steph, I am here for you any time that you need help. I need to send some names to Scooter and pray that he can find something in Bobbi's records. Miss her so darn much. Won't be the same going out to Gatesville in the Spring, but others need my help out there.

Your Momma
Stephanie, I just love the picture of you and your Mom. I keep your Mom's memorial front and center of everything I do on FG. I do so miss her. Will be back out in Coryell County in the Spring to see the "bubonics." I take it that was your name for them. LOL!! Luv ya!! Dee

I am not the one, but if I can Help you, all you have to do is ask.

If you read my bio, the both of us think alike in that there are others out there that are not able to make the trip so they depend on other Find A Gravers for help.
