Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi!

A little about me...I'm a amateur photographer/genealogist/findagraver as well as an extremely proud mommy to six children (3 girls/3boys) and 16 grandchildren! :) I've been working on my own family tree since about 1994...not long after my Grama passed away...she raised me and so I do occasionally refer to her as my Mommy. Family that I am working on are Sanders, Denny/Denney, Cummins, Daglish, McCord, Heater, Galbreath and Lobb. I live with my best Ed as I call him! and our doggie, Jettie. I found Findagrave while researching our family and have been a die hard "Graver" since!

Update: Married my best friend, My Ed, Oct 3, 2014 and am now officially a "new" person lol

PLEASE If you want to request a transfer or updates to memorials do that through the "edit" tab/suggest a correction!!!! When I have many many many edits/transfers/messages to read and answer it gets frustrating to have to look up the memorials for each request when if done correctly I can just click on the link included with the suggestion/edit...quicker for me to get it done for you :) :)

If someone has an issue with any memorial I am involved with please be polite and adult and send a note through the SAC feature and I'll gladly do whatever I can to make you happy! Leave me a rude hateful message and I'll first delete it and then forget about it. That way I'm returning the favor!

From Find A Grave's FAQ...
"The ultimate goal should be to have meaningful, accurate memorials that honor those who have passed away, regardless of who created the memorial or who maintains it."

I have no problem whatsoever doing any updates or links to my memorials and definitely will transfer if I'm not related and you have a direct connection.
I love being able to link up entire families as far back or forward as possible!!! It's like a big puzzle and I also love puzzles :) It gives me a great feeling to get one done! I always try to find a little information to add to the memorials that I create so that it is more than the mere fact that someone was born and they died. Sometimes I'm unsuccessful but believe me I usually spend some time searching before I give up! Stubborness I guess lol.
If I ever add a picture to a memorial that you would rather I didn't please let me know but I prefer to hear from the "manager" of the memorial.

RE: photo for Wynemah Kingen at Memory Gardens
I will try to get out to Gardens of Memory next week and get a close up of Wynemah's name. I didn't realize that the date feature was activated on the camera (I will blame it on my granddaughter who was playing with the camera!) until I started going through the pictures. Thanks for letting me know!
Take care,

Wesley Williams:
Do you have any information on Wesley Williams? My g-g grandmother Jane Williams Scott had a brother named Wesley. Now, I have heard two different stories about him. I'm wondering if this is him. My records show that he married Martha Jane Brumley. I noticed on his marker is the name Jane. This Wesley was buried at Collage Hill Cemetery, Brazil, Clay County, IN. Thanks for any information.

RE: Consort
Consort is a synonym of wife, and it's what the marker reads. I am a little embarrassed that I listed is as a surname knowing full well the meaning of it. You will see the name has been amended as well.

Thank you for suggesting her maiden name, I've added that as well.

Can you provide documentation of Mary Consort / Mary Kirby's name? I see the edit you submitted, and I'm only going off what I read on the marker, which is Mrs. Mary Consort N[ee] Kirby.

I admit I've not done the research, but I don't want to add misinformation.

Thank you for documenting this grave! Some day someone will come along and that will be just the connection they need and they will be most appreciative that you had the interest and took the time to document a grave with no information on it but "B A S"! I am adding you to "My Friend" list. There are so many really great contributors on Find-A-Grave. I haven't met so many good, kind people in one community before. I am very grateful for Find-A-Grave for many reasons. It must be great or Ancestry would not have bought it!!! I find the information I need from Find A Grave quickly and painlessly from this Find A Grave site. I AM ADDING YOU TO MY FAVORITE CONTRIBUTOR SITE. Thank you. Keep up the good work!
