Bio and Links
Just a guy that enjoys history and thinks that history and geneology are an important part of our lives. I was born and raised in Western Pennsylvania, and now I live outside of Houston, Texas. At home, I am trying to get as many local cemeteries listed as possible. I am currently focusing on "forgotten" and out of the way cemeteries in East Texas. I also travel quite a bit with my job, so in the evenings on the road, I visit local cemeteries and try to fulfill photo requests. I also travel back to Western PA frequently and try to get cemeteries there.

I try my best to try and find out as much as possible about each person using public records, obituaries, etc. However, I know that I will make mistakes. PLEASE let me know if there are any errors so that I can correct them.

Transfers: Please follow the FAG guidelines for transfers. If the person memorialized is not a direct relative - as defined by FAG - please do not ask for transfers.

The greatest thing about love is that no matter how many people you give it to or how much you give, you never have less than you started with.

Dorothy Faye Smith Dean
Thank you. Just so that you are aware, my cousin, Blynda Clapp (Dorothy's Daughter) just got on Find A Grave yesterday after I told her about the site. I transferred Dorothy's memorial to her since I thought it was better for her daughter to have it than her niece. ;)

Dorothy Faye Smith Dean
Hi Rick,

I was wondering if you would be so kind as to transfer the memorial of Dorothy Faye Smith Dean, memorial #64244445 over to me? She was my aunt.

Thank you,
Kim (Dean) Arrendell

Olive Opocensky
Hi Rick! Could you remove Georgia from being a child of Olive Opocensky? Olive only had 2 children, Willard and Gladys (it's also physically impossible for Olive to have conceived Georgia). Thank you so much!
