Bio and Links
Bio Photo Haven't been on FAG much the past 16 months - working on and just finished my MBA and also a graduate certificate. Those who have taken accelerated classes, work full time, and have a family with a 7 year old know how crazy it gets. I'm ramping back up and going through all the emails and FAG notifications/messages I have received and will address each of your queries and requests as quickly as I can with the individual attention you rightly deserve. Thank you very much to those who expressed and emailed me with their understanding and words of encouragement.


**Rotated Photos: Some of the pictures I have been posting are rotated to the left. FAG is scaling them to the left when uploaded. When you click on the picture to full window, the photo will be in the correct rotation. I will go back and trying reducing the size of the picture and uploading again as time permits (I will have to play around with one to find the right file size).

I am happy to take photo requests and make changes to memorials, However, please note that I work full time and I'm the mother of an active 8 year old and wife to an amazing husband.

********DO NOT******** Leave a message, i.e. BRENDA ARNETT DARBYSHIRE, if you will not provide contact information to have a dialog as to why you believe a change should be made. If you wish to discuss privately - email me. I get a lot of requests to delete a few photos I posted --READ the comment(s) with picture(s) before requesting any changes to Andersonville and other cemeteries in California, Kansas and the U.K.. I try very, very hard to only post based on source information I have personally, or have access to. Once in a while I may have not saved that information correctly, and with your kind help I can fix that. I get a lot of emails in regard to Cullimore, Baylor, and Graham family members, and their descendants, having wrong information. I know I have an error in the Baylor line and have been working to correct, after adequate research. Variations of Francis for male and female and poor sources makes this line take a little longer to fix - to name just one issue. A few of my family members I trust with information as I know they are diligently researching - anyone else will need to email me with their source information for change requests. I have no problems discussing. Please give me time, I may not be able to respond as soon as you wish, but I will respond.

Some of my, and my husband's, family names being researched are listed in my virtual cemeteries.

I make regular visits to Andersonville National Cemetery to visit with my mom and brother and to put flowers on their graves. When I make these trips I take photos for others. I try to pop in and look in the cemetery database located in the lobby and talk with park rangers, most who have done extensive research on individuals buried there. They can sometimes provide additional information that is not publicly available. If you would like to look for information in the database without having to visit the cemetery - it was made public by the family of Jack Lundquist who developed it. When he passed away in 2009 his family put it on line at:

I have a passion for capturing and sharing information found in cemeteries. When I stand and look about I see the headstones and markers and so much more. They are markers of a life that once was. As I stand there quietly I listen, to the whispers on the wind that say "remember me."

Dear G.P.& P., Congrats on the MBA. I am researching the Cullimores for my son. His great-grandfather is Donald Grant Sharp Cullimore (1907-1989). His grandfather is Lee "Duke" Cullimore. I was wondering where the picture of DGS Cullimore came from and maybe where his ashes were scattered. Thanks for any reply. Lily

Verna & Stella Seeley
Hello Terry, I posted pics for Verna & Stella Seeley. While looking around for the other daughter, Cordia, I found memorials for them with the spelling Seely. Those memorials were added in 2011. I think Find A Grave etiquette says the older memorial stays, but that is between you and the Lloyd's who added the other memorials. Just thought I would give you a heads up. Thanks

RE: Frank Shipman
All of the Nuckolls County cemeteries are on Find A Grave so you might query them for the obits. If they aren't on the memorial let me know and I will scan them when I go to the newspaper office which is only 3 blocks from our home.

RE: Frank Shipman
I am so lucky that the editor allows me to bring home the bound newspaper books and lets me put the obits on Find A Grave. Glad I could help you out with your research.
