Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a mother of two and a historian and librarian. I currently live in NW Louisiana and have lived in and photographed in SW Georgia in the past. I am often times very busy, but will get to messages just as soon as I can.

I love visiting cemeteries. I tend to take photos with genealogy in mind, therefore I try to get a photo of the entire grave, close up of any transcriptions, and photos of neighboring graves. I also will note anything that may help in a genealogy search. Also, if I take a photo for you or have posted a photo to your family member's memorial, I have no problem if you use that photo elsewhere for nonprofit. I would appreciate credit for the photo, but I have taken it for you and have no problem if you use it personally.

"Show me your cemeteries and I will tell you what kind of people you have." -Benjamin Franklin

Alma Timms, Bradford Sanford
Hi Alma's headstone spells her last name as "Tims" and Bradford's headstone lists his birth year as 1898 not 1900. Just wanted you to know. Glad I could help.

Hi Tarah, would you mind removing your request for a picture in the Lone Jack Cemetery. I'm not sure why it didn't show that it has been fulfilled but by you deleting it is the only thing I can think to do. Thanks! Karen

Abraham Davis Cooper
Hello, Tarah. I just saw your tribute on Abraham's memorial about his obituary, and also on his photo on my family tree on Ancestry. He was the brother of my great great grandfather John Russell Cooper. I have written a book of their family history and genealogy--almost ready to publish-- and I would dearly love to be able a copy of his obituary if there is any way possible. If you can obtain and email me a copy, I would be FOREVER grateful! My email address is Appreciatively, Fran

Myrtice Andrews
Not sure if I am related or not--but its likely. All of the Andrews in Essex are related in some way shape or form, and I am a descendent of one Essex Andrews family on my father's side.

RE: William Dyer
I found another marker within a few feet of William's that was of the same material and vintage as his. I created a memorial for Nancy Dyer. Check it out, it may be one of your Dyers.
