Bio Photo I live in DeSoto County Mississippi, with access to North Mississippi.

If you find errors or corrections or additions of any kind, please inform me. Sometimes the pictures don't come out real clear and I transcribe as best as I can. Sometimes I just give up and hope to get back and try again.

If I have management of a memorial that you wish to have, message or email me and I will be glad to transfer management unless it is in my genealogy line. If that rarity happens, we'll discuss each situation.

RE: Lena Schrader
I contacted them in February and they have no idea how this got on my grandmother's grave. Is there anyone else I can contact to correct this.

# 116766764 - Kate Eason

I think the Birth Year for Kate Eason should be 1889, not 1869.

That would make much more sense when compared to her parent's birth years.
