Bio and Links
I've always been fascinated with grave sites, visited cemeteries, made rubbings, took photos, etc. and must say that find-a-grave is an ideal site.

I've worked on family history projects for over 35 years and will for as long as I can. I'm more than happy to share family history with anyone interested.

The primary names I research are STROOPE, KEA, Pitts, Howton, Trammel, Hopper, Hale, Thetford, CARPER, BARTON, Lyon, Phipps, Griffith, Ellison, Shumate and many allied lines.

When I document a grave site, I try to include some information on the parents, siblings, marriage, etc. hoping this will help someone identify their relative. In some cases, when recording my line, or lines, I've created memorials for as much of the cemetery as I've had access to.

I'm not likely to post obits. I prefer to glean information from any I receive.

I'll be glad to transfer your family member to you. Always remember the FAG # for the memorial page and, of course, your FAG #. PLEASE do not send me a big list of names with no numbers included... thanks... I really liberal with transfers, would like to see family manage their ancestors.

If I have grave site information in error, please contact me so that corrections can be made.

Recent projects include:

--Gig Harbor and Haven of Rest Cemeteries, Gig Harbor, Pierce County, Washington

--JCC Smith Cemetery in Texas

--Knight of Pythias and Sunset Lane Memorial Park, Port Orchard, Kitsap County, Washington

--Lovington and Resthaven Cemeteries, Lovington, Lea County, New Mexico

--Mountain View Memorial Park, Lakewood, Pierce County, Washington

--Mount Calvary Cemetery (Santa Barbara Cemetery) , Albuquerque, Bernalillo County, New Mexico

--Calvary, Old Pioneer and Tacoma Cemeteries, Tacoma, Pierce County, Washington

--Riverside Cemetery in Vassar, Tuscola County, Michigan

RE: Howton ...
I have been deleting the Curtis out of Jonathan Curtis Howton. I have found no proof in this and it was from another families information on their genealogy. I have scratched it off of my history information in my book. I wish everyone will correct this error. I'm truly sorry for any misleading this has caused.

The Landstroms
I see you manage entries for Josephine Landstrom and Albert Landstrom. Would you like me to transfer over management rights for Joseph Theodore Landstrom as well? Let me know if you would like me to do that.

RE: Spencer and Mary Smith
This line is on my mother's maternal side.

Spencer and Mary Melinda are my 5th great grandparents coming down through Lettice Smith Galloway

I visit this cemetery from time to time.

We are in the process of making PVC crosses to place on four unmarked graves.

James W Smith
The death certificate for James W. Smith gives his middle name as Wilson. Do you have documentation that shows his name was Watson.

All the children of Spencer and Mary are listed on the memorial.

Thanks for the info on their marriage date.
