Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been researching my family history off and on since 1980. Only recently became interested in helping others by taking photos when I can. I personally know how much it means to someone to have that info on a family member and it warms my heart to help out.

Gravestone Photo Permission
I am happy to see that you photographed the gravestone of Helen Alford Bankston in Lanier Cemetery (Memorial# 37482759).

I would like to add this gravestone photo to the (non-profit) Alford American Family Association's collection of Louisiana Obituaries, where her obituary is (or will be) included. You can see the current collection at

May I have your permission to include your gravestone photos? If so, the photo caption will say:

Photo from [cemetery name, city, county, state]—
Permission granted by the photographer, Cathy Faust

And thanks so much for your gravestone photo work!

Best regards,
Pamela Alford Thompson (Find A Grave #47195155)

Duplication of James Keegan
You have 2 #'s for James A Keggan. 135535287 and 135403604. The information is more complete and accurate and headstone picture is clearer for 135535287. Just thought you might want to delete 135403604.

Duvernay Family
Hi Cathy,

Hope you are enjoying all this wonderful weather we are having these days. Before you know it, we will be freezing; but right now it is wonderful>

Thank you so much for adding the Duvernay family to Find A Grave. Actually seeing the tombstone brought on lots of conversation between my siblings and I and some of the things we remembered and of course, things we had totally forgotten.

I hope to find someone who will clean the stone; it is terrible, and we are probably the last generation to do so.

I did want to send you some additional information, it is truly up to you as to what you do with it.

1. Marion Cecelia Duvernay Waguespack was a full sister to Edward and Robert and there was a third brother Francis "Frank" Paris Duvernay DOB January 26, 1916 DOD March 22, 2003. He is buried at All Saints Mausoleum in New Orleans.

I could not find an obituary for Robert. The closest I came was in the Times Picayune Records of the day he was listed as having died January 8, 1952 at the Veterans Hospital. He was married to Pearl Toler, they had no children.

Thank you for your research and the many photos and documents you have uploaded for the Hammond family. My cousin is also very appreciative.

You have been a great help with the four Hammonds in Greenlawn Cemetery with a total of ten with the Hammond surname in Hammond, LA. It is really great to have such a dedicated F-A-G volunteer living in the same city.

Cynthia, who manages many of these memorials, has finally approved several Hammond family edits requested in early April and I will send more details via email.

Thank you,
Del Gran

I don't know what you use for email. If you send me a message to i may be able to tell is you are using yahoo, gmail, etc.

Most email clients have a means of inserting or adding attachments, doesn't make any difference of whether the attachement is JPG, PDF, DOC, etc.

Do you have any method of uploading photos?

From what I know, everybody that uses email has a means of sending attachments including smart phones which I don't use.

A 1st marriage to Marcia Le Burdick or anyone else would certainly solve the problem.

I do not subscribe to Ancestry. Email of photos as attachments, preferably JPG but I can convert PDF to JPG as well. I prefer email for all communications as it is easier to follow the Q&A's. I also like to paste sources and information into my family tree which is also easier with email. However, I greatly appreciate your information regardless of how you prefer to send.

I need to do some other things today so may not be as responsive as yesterday.

When I found grandson at FamilySearch in 1900 Census:
Carl Loyd Grandson M 7 SD
living with John and Sarah only in LA

Does this look like father of John W Hammond b1834?

Emily (Emma) born 1854 immigrated from Germany in 1870, married John C Boysen about 1875 and had six kids. Census results for their son, Barney Frederick Boysen, provides a lot of information.

Sarah born Dec 1845 married John Wesley Hammond born April 1834 in 1861 which is 7 years after Emily was born and 9 years before Emily immigrated. Wondering if Emily is John's sister but no confirmation.

However, in the 1900 census, Sarah is mother of 9 with 7 living so the numbers agree. She could be claiming Emily as her step-daughter which would then mean she is John's 2nd wife.
