Bio and Links
Bio Photo Former volunteer, Secretary & Treasurer for the Montgomery Cemetery Rehabilitation Authority. I have spent the last nine years photographing, transcribing, seeking out records and descendants in various cemeteries. I have done all that I can, not only for this Historic Black Cemetery & her inhabitants, but many cemeteries in my area including Oakwood City Cemetery.
Wherever your information comes from, please take the time to put it in paragraph form, omitting all living persons born after 1945. The dead don't have a right to privacy but the living do & every contributor should respect that. Graphic, superfluous details, cut & paste records or obits will not be added. Information from records such as the census, markers, even birth & death should not be taken as the gospel. Estimated dates for birth will be noted in the appropriate slot when there is not a birth date on the marker.

Do not add biographical information to virtual flowers or photographs of obits to memorials I manage. Upon discovery I will ask the contributor first to remove them. After a period of time I will forward them to Findagrave Support for removal. You don't leave biographical information in flowers at an actual graveside or cemetery & you shouldn't do it here.
Do not add another similar shot of a marker to any memorial unless yours is significantly better. There are a lot of contributors to this website, while I am not perfect & make mistakes don't assume I am the source of erroneous or conflicting information which will always be noted in the appropriate section. IMHO, the greatest evolution of Findagrave are the family links. 🔗🔗🔗

All of this is covered in the guidelines established by Find a Grave & I shouldn't even have to reiterate it here. 📖 For the record, even if you didn't agree with them, you did agree to abide by them when you created an account with Find A Grave.
Mary Louisa Portis holds a special place in my heart. The remarkable story of her marble ledger solidified my belief that preserving the history that lies in our cemeteries is vitally important & reaffirming my love for bone yards, the stories they have to tell & the enormous peace that can be found there.

My photos are for your personal use only. If you wish to use mine or anyone else's anywhere just ask & credit the photographer because there are some incredibly good ones here. 📸🔎🚗 A sincere shout out to those who beat the bushes photographing markers on my behalf.
