Bio and Links
Bio Photo Thank you to all the researchers who have told me that my work has helped them in some way. That is very important to me. I hope others who are able to take pictures and/or catalog cemeteries in the area where they live will do it. This is what this site is all about. Sharing with others who can't travel all over the country getting their family information.
I love getting corrections, transfers, and link requests, but PLEASE DO IT FROM THE MEMORIAL PAGE as it is so much easier. It gives me all the info I need.....along with your request, of course! I will not do requests from the public message page. I am much too busy to look up the memorial to make the changes for you. DO ALL REQUESTS FROM THE 'EDIT' LINK ON THE INDIVIDUAL MEMORIAL PAGE!
Also, I've had quite a number of requests from people who think I also do free research. No, I don't. I take headstone photos and try to make sure cemeteries are complete and online. I have other hobbies. I don't do paid research either.
Thank you.
Happy Hunting, Kathy

Carl Ross Swicegood
I think Henry and Susan were the grandparents due to how old they were at the time of his birth.
U.S., Social Security Applications and Claims Index, 1936-2007Name: Carl Ross Swicegood
Gender: Male
Race: White
Birth Date: 6 Jul 1888
Birth Place: Tyro Davidso, North Carolina
Father: George F Swicegood
Mother: Fannie Swicegood
Type of Claim: Original SSN.
Notes: Dec 1961: Name listed as CARL ROSS SWICEGOOD
The above information is what he would have given. I am helping my husband with his tree. Edith Marie Swicegood was his grandmother. If I have it right Carl would be a first cousin 3x removed. Thanks for taking the time to look at this. Kindly Karen.

Mariam Wilson # 19362325
I tried to provide a link to Mariam Wilson's WikiTree profile which I researched, but my link doesn't work, and I can't change it. Is there a way it can be deleted or corrected? Thanks.
I have also provided information on her parents based on my research.
Thanks, Susan Rachel

Grave photo
You have a photo of a grave marker at

The 95683804 memorial is a duplicate to 84540794 and I've asked the other Find A Grave member to remove her post since it is a duplicate. Can you post your photo on memorial 84540794?

Martha Susannah Reynolds
Hi! I just got around to seeing your message.

Martha Susannah Reynolds is the sister of Franklin Reynolds. This is noted in the Encyclopedia of American Genealogy and at

I think that Franklin was married to Isabel Wade. There is a marriage date of Jan. 26, 1884 in Guilford County, but I have not located her burial site.

Thanks and have a great day!

Thanks to You
Just wanted to thank you for all the updates you post with information I send to you. You're an example of what true "friends" on Find A Grave do for each other, and not those who see it only as a place to record burials and nothing else as to names, family ties, places of birth/death, etc.

If you ever need something from me, a lookup in the Register of Deeds, a grave photo, etc, please let me know.

Thanks again Kathy!

Hello Kathy,
Thank you. The transfer has been received and I have added the information from my memorial to yours.
In addition, my memorial has been deleted so there is no duplicate.
Appreciate your kindness.
