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.

Email me and ask me to fill you in Joseph H Michael & his wife Teresa (Cook) Michael. I am sure the C on her stone stands for her maiden name of Cook.

Thank you for all the pictures you take and work you do in this cemetery. I also love Find A Grave and could spend hours looking at headstones. I have just discovered I have 4th and 5th cousins buried here. You have taken pictures of many of their headstones. I greatly appreciate your efforts, keep up the good work, and congratulations on your 2014 marriage :-)

Wrong Cemetery Location-Harry Pittman
Upon searching cemeteries this week, I noticed that Harry Pittman is listed under the wrong cemetry. His stone is in the Wright-Bethel cemetery in Waugh. Would you mind changing the location and I will post the photo of the stone. Harry Pittman 1885-1961

RE: Memorial# 80590624
OK I will let her know. I don't know why she didn't see it?? Or if she can fix it now. I also ask you to transfer a memorial to me for Harry Lee Martin in Memorial Park Cem. He is my husb grandpa.

Frances "Fannie" Kemerly. Colleen, I think if you look over some records you will find her name was Manning. I find her death cert and it clearly says father Joseph Manning and mother Caroline ___ both born in PA. You might want to turn that tombstone picture around !! LOL!

RE: James Musco
I did find it after I sent you that note, and have asked Find A Grave to merge the 2. Thanks for the heads up.

Please send memorial # for the original and I'll gladly delete my 'duplicate'. Thanks.

RE: 80308294 Manifold edits
Thank you, Colleen, for the transfer offer. The Mendon Manifolds are cousins, indeed, but we only share an ancestor back in the early 1800s...maybe 6th cousins. If you want, then yes, please. I will continue to link my cousins as I get the time. You are most kind.
