Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have worked on genealogy for years (1976-now) and I came across Find A Grave while researching a relative and found them on here. Find A Grave is a great community and resource!

Memorials: Those I have created are of my family or while photographing in cemeteries and were not on here. If there is a memorial you would like transferred to you please just ask using the EDIT tab. The only ones I will not transfer are my own family members, unless you are a closer kin than me.

Remember photos taken after 1976 are under Copyright Laws, to use any tombstone photos without permission is BREAKING THE LAW. Please ask permission to use them and give credit where it is due!

I live in Lubbock, Texas.

RE: Transfer
That's great. How are you related? I have a few old photos I could email to you that you might find of interest. Bula Mae (correct spelling) was my mother's sister and my favorite aunt. Happy to meet a distant cuz.

Aubrey Floyd Franklin
Dave, you took the pictures on the grave of LaRue Franklin (51934343), one of them also has her husbands marker and I was wondering if you would add it to his memorial? Aubrey Floyd Franklin (163558756). Thank you, Beth

Hi, Dave. I just realized that there are two Martha Ann Sullivans attached to Calvin Luther Gill. One is yours--the newer, 28228152--and one is Landon Roberts'--40714438. It new meaning to "twins" in the family. You two could benefit by merging. Just a suggestion. Sandi Gill

PS. Always like to see your memorials. You're lucky to have so many family photos. Guess there were too few photos and too many kids! :)

Would you mind moving your photo on 65508881 to an earlier memorial - 65415094? Mary will delete 65508881 after you move your photo. I appreciate your help. Marilyn

You took a very nice picture of the Idalou Cemetary marker. I like it a lot.

Paul D Goins #5441666
Hi Dave,

My name is Valarie contributor # 46556824, I would like to ask your permission to use the headstone photo of Paul D Goins and Mattie Lee Hurst Goins on Ancestry in my tree? And I would like to request a transfer. This is my great aunt and uncle. The transfer request is missing on their page and the parents edit is still pending. I would very much like to link PauL # 54416666 to the rest of his family.

Thank You
Valarie Thompson
