Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi!

A little about me...I'm a amateur photographer/genealogist/findagraver as well as an extremely proud mommy to six children (3 girls/3boys) and 16 grandchildren! :) I've been working on my own family tree since about 1994...not long after my Grama passed away...she raised me and so I do occasionally refer to her as my Mommy. Family that I am working on are Sanders, Denny/Denney, Cummins, Daglish, McCord, Heater, Galbreath and Lobb. I live with my best Ed as I call him! and our doggie, Jettie. I found Findagrave while researching our family and have been a die hard "Graver" since!

Update: Married my best friend, My Ed, Oct 3, 2014 and am now officially a "new" person lol

PLEASE If you want to request a transfer or updates to memorials do that through the "edit" tab/suggest a correction!!!! When I have many many many edits/transfers/messages to read and answer it gets frustrating to have to look up the memorials for each request when if done correctly I can just click on the link included with the suggestion/edit...quicker for me to get it done for you :) :)

If someone has an issue with any memorial I am involved with please be polite and adult and send a note through the SAC feature and I'll gladly do whatever I can to make you happy! Leave me a rude hateful message and I'll first delete it and then forget about it. That way I'm returning the favor!

From Find A Grave's FAQ...
"The ultimate goal should be to have meaningful, accurate memorials that honor those who have passed away, regardless of who created the memorial or who maintains it."

I have no problem whatsoever doing any updates or links to my memorials and definitely will transfer if I'm not related and you have a direct connection.
I love being able to link up entire families as far back or forward as possible!!! It's like a big puzzle and I also love puzzles :) It gives me a great feeling to get one done! I always try to find a little information to add to the memorials that I create so that it is more than the mere fact that someone was born and they died. Sometimes I'm unsuccessful but believe me I usually spend some time searching before I give up! Stubborness I guess lol.
If I ever add a picture to a memorial that you would rather I didn't please let me know but I prefer to hear from the "manager" of the memorial.

Alice Ewell
Hi, I found the above child's stone and added a pic to the memorial. I did some checking with and found her death cert. Here's more info on her. BD Sept 22, 1927, in Indiana and died Dec 10, 1928, in Alexandria, In... also Her fathers BD is May 4, 1898, and he died March 20, 1944, and according to the invoice where his wife paid for a military stone to be delivered to the Odd Fellow IOOF Cemetery in Alexandria, In. His Name was Harry Alden Ewell. Childs mother was Hattie Mae Cox Ewell. I looked up both Alexandria cemetery's and Harry is not on the list. Maybe you can find him and add that to Alice Ewell's memorial. Kathy Bassett Davis

RE: transfers
Yes they are all my cousins, from my 4th gr grandaunt Mary (Gee)Taylor and their husbands or wives. That is why I would like them, bec no one has all the info and I do and would like to get it in and link everyone up. I usually get with you via email but was on here so just decided to do it that way.

Memorial# 107561280 can you transfer to me? Her mother was my 4th gr grand aunt.

All of the siblings death cert have dif maiden names for the mom, some have it correct others hav some other name but they all belong to the same woman. So somewhere someone made a mistake.

I know we do a lot of the same families but not sure if you do Gee family or not.

Anyway, I am trying to get the parents and all the kids linked up with correct info and then make note that some of the death cert have incorrect maiden name for the mom.
