Bio Photo Hello - We got the Genealogy BUG in 1977 - been at IT ever since. Just found Findagrave (2009)- LOVE it. Has given me answers as well as created questions. Bill was working on Southern Varner's & all their connections from PA & NC. He passed away November 2015. Bobbye with some cousins has been working on all 13 children of Jacob Shadrach Champion, who died in 1832 in SC. As well as Robert Taliaferro & Thomas Boulware lines of VA. Thanks to all the Findagrave people who have helped us and drop a line if we can help you.

May 2016 - Received some edits earlier and some how they were removed. If I didn't get to your edit would you please send it again? Thanks, Bobbye

Couple of Gravers
Irene Edna Blum
Hello Bobbye,

I have photographed many stones in both Fairview and Greenwood cemeteries, in Cedar Falls, Iowa. The earlier memorial page, that I was unaware of, was created by Kent Schneider. He created many memorial pages from newspaper obituaries. I have created almost all of my memorial pages from photographed markers. Kent ran afoul of Find A Grave several years ago, and is no longer able to manage his own pages. Irene is definitely buried in Fairview Cemetery, and not in Greenwood Cemetery, but only Find A Grave administration is able to edit the original page.

Reviewing my photo files, I find that the Blum marker was taken on 10-1-2011, at 1234. The photos prior to and after are clearly at Fairview Cemetery, because of surrounding scenery visible in the photos of adjacent markers. I did not photograph any markers in Greenwood Cemetery that day.

The only way to correct the cemetery listed on the Greenwood page is to contact Find A Grave administration to request that the page be moved. I will post a photo on the Greenwood page with a note that she is actually buried in Fairview Cemetery.

Thank you for letting me know about this. If the Find A Grave admin moves the page to Fairview Cemetery, I'll delete my page. Until then, I'll post a note that she also has a page listing her burial in Greenwood Cemetery.

Thank you placing Frances and Nelson in the correct cemetery. I requested edits through the edit tab. I do not if there are obits for them but I do not have obits for them. Thanks again for your help.

RE: 'Galloway's
Hello, Bobbye, it has been awhile, hasn't it?
Yes, I believe this is the right Lindsey Galloway. The family was in Stephens County on the 1920 census.
I have made the appropriate links. Thanks for bringing this to my attention. -Bobbie

Christopher Shackleford
Thanks for the info. Christopher Shackileford is my 2nd great grandmother's brother. It is so very hard to get any info on him since he left Virginia for Texas. The rest of his siblings, including my 2nd great-grandmother, lived and died in Virginia, as do I. Virginia vital statistics began in 1853 to 1896; then a vital statistic void; then the records began again in 1912 to present. Therefore, I have no death records for his siblings. If you can find any documentation on him, I would surely appreciate it.
