Bio and Links
Bio Photo Genealogy is a passion of mine from when I was very young. My grandmother told me wonderful stories about our families and I have been doing family history for over 30 years. I have traveled all over the world photographing family graves and writing books on my different families. I need another 25 years to finish everything I have started!

PLEASE do not add birth or death certificates to my memorials. Thank You...

RE: Nellie Chambers
You are welcome. Now if I could find the memorials or more information of two other siblings another sister and brother that live into adulthood. There are two older sisters that died quite young and aren't mentioned in the other siblings obituaries. Chances are most family members don't know about those two that died quite young.

RE: Lydia Logan
I'm sorry that I spelled her maiden name wrong the first time, it's "Tustin" Our family records show her first name a "Martha", hence, being call "Mattie". Not sure where 'Lydia' came from but then many used names other than their given name. Thank you for making the change. Nancy

Re: Dr. Thomas Gerrard
If you cannot edit the bio of a memorial that you manage, then you must send a message to edit to get the bio unlocked. I can't help you.

The only way to get the 'bio by' line removed is to have FindAGrave do it and I have never been able to get one deleted. No mere contributor can remove that line.

RE: Dr. Thomas Gerrard
I can't do anything about this because I do not have editing rights. findagrave put my name there and they would have to take it off.

I can think of two ways we could do this. You could transfer the memorial to me and tell me what to correct and then I could transfer it back. I might be able to take my name off - I don't know.

You can ask FindAGrave to fix it. That will take some time. I have not been successful in having other people's names taken off bios.

What I have also seen done is to delete the bio above my name and then say that the bio is not by me. I don't know whether that will work or not.

Sorry about that, Chief! I'll send a note to the manager of Martha's memorial. Thanks for the fast action!

Thomas Gerrard
you may want to correct this You have
Rose born 1693 and probably should be 1603
as Thomas was dead by 1693
Thomas Gerrard married 1st, Rose Allerton Tucker, widow of John Tucker. Rose married third, John T. Newton I. Her parents, Isaac Allerton, Sr. and his second wife Fear Brewster, were early Pilgrims to New Haven, CT. Rose was born 1693 in Plymouth Colony, Massachusetts and died 1711-1712 at Westmoreland County, Virginia.
Thanks for all you do.

RE: Jessie Spencer
Hi Karen, you are welcome. It was my pleasure. I usually get way off the path when I am researching but I want to share all my findings for future generations. I hope in return others will do the same for my family. Judy
