Bio and Links
Bio Photo My primary interest is genealogy, so I photograph surrounding family members' graves when possible, even when those folks were not included in the request. Please feel free to use my photos in your family trees.

I am a retired English teacher in Austin, Texas. I am a third generation Texan if you count being born here, but there are five generations of my family buried here.

Please contact me if you have questions about any of the photos I've posted. For any of the memorials I've created, I'll be happy to transfer them if they are not related to me. Even if it is my relative, if you are a direct descendant and I am not, I will make the transfer.

Hello Shirley,
Thank you so much for getting this grave photograph for me. I really appreciate it. I'm doing this family genealogy for my friend John Bell whom has Alzheimer's but he still was able to remember his parents and grandparents names. This will make him happy when I show it to him.
Again, Thank You.
Have a nice day.

RE: re: Frances Fowler
Hi Shirley,
Thanks for the imput about Frances. She and Orrin were neighbors of my aunt and uncle and I was boarded with them from age 2 to 4 while my mother worked. They were very special to me.

Many thanks for getting the photograph for the marker of John Ryan. I never did get a notification from findagrave that you had taken the photograph so my apologies on the delay.
