Bio and Links
Bio Photo I transfer memorials that are not related to me. Please follow the guidelines and state your relationship.

I prefer not to see death certificates on memorials that I manage. Do we really need to know exactly how someone died? The descriptions of injuries can be very graphic. Homicides and suicides...Do we really need to know the details? We are supposed to be honoring the deceased.

My families are Pillow, Jordan, Yates, Cash, Campbell and Mays.

Feel free to use my pictures. That's why I post them here.

Please be sure of your facts before submitting edits. I recently received and edit to connect a spouse to my husband's uncle. His uncle's wife is still living. I rejected the edit. As a result I will be watching these edits more closely.


PLEASE, PLEASE STOP SENDING EMAILS TO REQUEST TRANSFERS. USE THE EDIT TAB. THIS MAKES IT A LOT EASIER TO PROCESS A TRANSFER.

Shanks at Stonewall Jackson Mem Cem
Hi Joan, Thanks so much for photographing their markers. Plus thanks for taking the time to correct the records I posted to match the markers. My source has been pretty good in the past but they really messed up on the Shanks. I found others, but corrected them using your marker photos. Glad to transfer them if you're related in any way. I'm not. Appreciated,

JOHNSTONEs 3 at Stonewall Jackson Mem Cem
Hi Joan, Thanks so much for the photos of the 3 Johnstone markers. Also I appreciate your noting the errors on the dates and first name, that I found on the Washington & Lee University site for the cemetery.

It truly takes a village of teamwork. Appreciated,
