Bio and Links
Bio Photo I grew up in Winslow, Arizona and spent many years in Texas. I now live in Salt Lake City and am retired from the Union Pacific Railroad and Delta Air Lines. Once I found out how many of my relatives had memorials on Find A Grave and how many more needed to be created, I was hooked.

Iím currently creating memorials from African American death certificates in Texas. Just finished Wharton County and now working on Fayette County. I believe in adding as much info to a memorial as possible through the death certificate and I realize death certificates aren't perfect but they're still better than having no information at all. This includes all birth and death info and connecting them to their parents if possible. The more you add, the easier it will be for future generations to find their ancestors. I always check to make sure Iím not creating a duplicate so, if you see one that Iíve overlooked, donít hesitate to let me know so I can delete mine.

Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

If you have extensive additions/changes to make to a memorial, please use the link under the "Edit" tab on the memorial.

Tim, I thank you for the heads-up. I would like to share with you the biography notes for Rev. Isam Kelly and his wife, Ida Brownlow Kelly, to you if you would like them -- before I reassign this memorial numbers. Please know that I will hold-off for 24 hours for your convenience.

Thank you for making me aware of the duplication.

Warmest genealogy regards,

Thank you for the edit suggestion for this individual. I have been working exclusively on segregated negro cemeteries since the beginning of 2017 in the Central Texas area.(Lee County, Gonzales County and surrounding Freed Communities) Anytime I come across a death certificate while searching for other family members in Ancestry, I make sure I save it and create a profile if one doesn't already exist and make all the connections I can. It's good to know I'm not alone in this hobby! Looking forward to crossing paths with you again.

Tim - I appreciate the time you took to located the grave of Ethel Chiles and adding your photo to the memorial. It takes many volunteers like yourself to "build a village;" in this case, Find A Grave. All your contributions you make to this site increases the value for individuals researching their family roots. Thank You. John

Tim. No I didn't. The server is misallocating images to the wrong memorials. I have had many people contact me this week. Driving me nuts, but I will delete.
