(John C. Carter)|
(Will be spending part of the summer in southwestern Maine).
Happy to photograph at any cemetery in the Tampa Bay, FL area! (or in the Lakes Region of SW Maine).
Born in Dover, DE, (to parents from NJ & WV), I lived in southern CA until age 12, & then in Raton, (a small town in N.E. New Mexico), which I consider my home town. I attended NM State Univ for 4 years (with a 1-yr exchange to Oregon State Univ), but did not complete a degree at that time, & later moved back to southern CA, settling in the Orange County area. After 10 yrs in the O.C., I moved to St. Petersburg, FL (Tampa Bay area) in 1990, & have been here ever since.
I have avidly worked on my family's genealogy since the age of 15 ... 43 years ago!
I am a 28-yr member (and former chapter registrar) of the SAR (Sons of the American Revolution) with 7 qualifying ancestors submitted (more to come!), a member of the SUVCW (Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War) with 10 qualifying ancestors or brothers of ancestors (more to come!), a member of the SVR (Sons of Veterans Reserve--affiliated with the SUVCW), a member of the S&DUSCT (Sons & Daughters of U.S. Colored Troops), a member of the Nanticoke Lenni-Lenape Indians of New Jersey, and an associate member of the Lenape Indian Tribe of Delaware.
(Click on my profile pic above to read the story of the Civil War ancestor with whose headstone I'm posing).
I'm very proud that every single branch of my ancestry has been in America since at least pre-Revolutionary times.
Having taken numerous college courses over the years, I finally bit the bullet & enrolled in a program in 2003 to complete my degree, & graduated from Eckerd College (a local, private, liberal arts college) in May 2005 with a B.A. in Creative Writing.
Besides genealogy & writing, my other interests include: clock collecting, books, movies, photography, geocaching, the Civil War, the space program, many types of music, & visiting cemeteries!
Thanks to the creators of this site for doing such a great job!

Thank you for taking the time to get the picture of my parents headstone. I have become disabled and no longer drive. I have not been down to Bay Pines in years. I have added the picture to the family ancestry tree. Thank you, again. Lisa

|Rich Vance||RE: Your edit for Dorothy B. Bennett|
Thanks for the offer, but I'm not related, so no transfer needed.
Haven't seen ya in the Forums lately... ;-)
You might remember some comments there from the admins that the memorials should be all about the dearly departed and "shout-outs" & thanks to other contributors are discouraged.
About the only time that I'll mention it in a bio is if there's conflicting info from more than one contributor.
Take care - and may your 2017 be better in every way than 2016.
|Larry & Linda Davis Singleton||RE: William Perl|
Thanks for letting me know. The reason I made a mistake, Buddie has two stones. I sent you another edit for his Birthday on the old stone but you may want to leave it as is. I am trying to get all the stones on that I can. Thanks, Larry S
