Bio and Links
Bio Photo Looking at family history in Johntson, Bladen and Robenson counties in North Carolina for the Munn's Ryals, and Burney's. My wife's family is from the Chicago area: the Schoditsch, Buenzow, Petznick Ulrich, and Knauf.

If you find any mistakes in my entries,
email me and I will correct it. I would like to thank all who have added links, bios or photos, your kindness is appreciated. If you find a memorial I have added and would like to have it removed from Findagrave, please ask, and I will remove it. I don't have any intention to offend or upset anyone, just love to help and Findagrave is such a wonderful resource for honoring ones who have passed and for helping ones to connect to their family history.
I'm not related to most of my enteries, the information I add to each memorial is all I have.

I just wanted to write and say, "Hey" :)
I am still finding all kinds of good stuff in the books you loaned us. Next week we are going to visit Old Brown Marsh in Bladen.... any thing I can do for you there? We have not been before and are really looking forward to it.

Incorrectly posted photo
Hello once again. Clearly I have been working on too many memorials this early in the morning.
The photo is incorrectly posted on Ethel Coleman's memorial. It is memorial # 118480177

It is correctly posted at # 131469909.

Thanks and have a great day!

Hi Rich,
I was posting photos to Marked Tree Cemetery in Arkansas and I ran across one of your photos on a memorial. It is correctly posted on the memorial for Earl Pomphrey Sr, # 118480177, but mistakenly appears on the memorial for James O. Coleman, # 118480153. Could you take a moment when you have time and delete the photo from the James Coleman memorial? Thanks!

RE: Filling in the blanks
Thank you Rich. I feel a calling to "fill in the blanks" to help them be found and remembered. David

Hi Mr. Ryal:
First of all I would like to say Thank-You for all your hard work on all the memorials! I just started to manage my family's memorials(not a large amount)-I was hoping you may transfer 2 memorials- Andrew D. Pearson-#121796848 and his wife-Minerva Brooks Pearson-#121796933(Andrew is my Paternal Grandfather's brother or my Dad's uncle)!
