Bio and Links
Bio Photo My dad calls me the grave hopper, I find cemeteries fascinating. When I come up to a grave marker I wonder about that person how they lived their lives and some lives didn't even get started, then there are the ones who's family didn't have money for a tomb stone so they get lost to the next generation like my sister who died a 6 weeks. I know about where she is burried, why every time money came available my devorced parents couldn't get a stone for her? My great grandmother has no stone, she died at age 22, he remarried and died an old man and he has a stone. Anyway... I love to find my ancestors, its a great feeling helping other to find theirs. It brings joy to my soul.

Memorial # 52232755

The memorial 52232755 you added for Telitha Carter is a duplicate of the one I added for her (my GG Grandmother) on Nov 27, 2008. To prevent confusion please delete memorial 52232755.

Brigette, do you happen to have a picture of your GPa Lonnie Benjamin PLUNKETT and GMa Katie MCLAUGHLIN PLUNKETT that you can add to their memorial page? Also, email me if you'd like a PLUNKETT Genealogy Report. Will gladly send you one. My mother and Lonnie were 2nd cousins. Doug McBroom (a PLUNKETT genealogist)

Stale Photo Claim
I took 81 photos this morning at the 2920 location. Could you release the claim on Arlin Watson so that the photo can be loaded for the requestor?

New Providence Cemetery
Hi Brigette

I've noticed that you've created some memorials in New Providence Cemetery. Some of these are duplicates to memorials that is listed in Providence Cemetery (the same cemetery, someone just left New off when created on Find A Grave). Usually I search for cemeteries by parish/county & go through each before adding because this is the case many times. Just like New Ebenezer in Castor is listed in many obits as just Ebenezer but the sign at the cemetery has New Ebenezer and that's how it's listed on Find A Grave. Anyway, I just wanted to share that with you as I was taking a look today to see if there were any photo request that I could fill today - hopefully I'll get out there!

Take Care,
