Bio and Links
Bio Photo Genealogy is a passion of mine from when I was very young. My grandmother told me wonderful stories about our families and I have been doing family history for over 30 years. I have traveled all over the world photographing family graves and writing books on my different families. I need another 25 years to finish everything I have started!

PLEASE do not add birth or death certificates to my memorials. Thank You...

Peachy Quinn Harrison
Hi Karen,

Just wanted to let you know that I am related to Peachy through the Harrison line. I was verifying his place of burial and checked with the cemetery. He is actually buried at Forest Hill Cemetery in Kansas City. It's located at 6901 Troost Avenue. He is in Block 13N, Grave 1208. He has no marker. His death certificate confirms that Forest Hill took care of his arrangements.
Peachy's memorial# is #80546181.

Thanks so much,

RE: Nellie Chambers
You are welcome. Now if I could find the memorials or more information of two other siblings another sister and brother that live into adulthood. There are two older sisters that died quite young and aren't mentioned in the other siblings obituaries. Chances are most family members don't know about those two that died quite young.

RE: Lydia Logan
I'm sorry that I spelled her maiden name wrong the first time, it's "Tustin" Our family records show her first name a "Martha", hence, being call "Mattie". Not sure where 'Lydia' came from but then many used names other than their given name. Thank you for making the change. Nancy

Thanks for letting me know it was worth the time. A lot of work here on Find A Grave will never be used. Thanks again

RE: Dr. Thomas Gerrard
I can't do anything about this because I do not have editing rights. findagrave put my name there and they would have to take it off.

I can think of two ways we could do this. You could transfer the memorial to me and tell me what to correct and then I could transfer it back. I might be able to take my name off - I don't know.

You can ask FindAGrave to fix it. That will take some time. I have not been successful in having other people's names taken off bios.

What I have also seen done is to delete the bio above my name and then say that the bio is not by me. I don't know whether that will work or not.

Sorry about that, Chief! I'll send a note to the manager of Martha's memorial. Thanks for the fast action!
