Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm a Yankee transplanted to South to pick up the pieces of a life gone awry. After spending a great deal of my life in school studying history and working in the museum field, I have now settled on computers as a new outlet for my interest in history. My family's history can be traced back to at least the Norman Invasion of England and I (with my sister) descend from kings of the Scottish Celts, Irish Celts and Norman Scots, which I have known for as long as I can remember -- my history always being a part of my present. Because I grew up going to cemeteries with my parents to visit the graves of relatives, I have a long-standing affinity for burial places, whether a dolmen in Ireland or a weed filled forgotten family plot. My idea of relaxing when my mind is in turmoil is to go clean the graves of those long gone and forgotten, just to let them know that someone thought about them. My blog will be a place where I can showcase my interest in death art via photographic journeys through cemeteries and finding noted articles of interest. Feel free to contact me if you are interested in having me perform any research or photograph a grave in my area for your genealogy.

Memorial 138015480 Ellen T Harwick

First - you have a way with words. Have you considered writing a book? No kidding. I enjoyed reading your bio. And, no, I don't say that to everyone. However, the following question is the standard question I use to request permission to copy a photo for use in my family tree and is my primary reason for contacting you.

May I have your permission to use the photo you took of the cemetery (Evergreen) where, Ellen T Harwick, my 1st cousin is buried in my family tree? I really appreciate the hard work you have done for me and others like me who cannot. These photos, which I use in the Death and Burial section of my relative's profile page (not the profile photo) add a lot to otherwise barren pages of forms and statistics.

Thank you so much,

Sorry about the previous message, hit the wrong key. We respectfully request permission to use the cemetery sign photo in our online tree. Marie has a cousin interred there and the photo will make a great addition.

Thanks for your consideration.

Rev John E. Skipper

I am researching our church history Ė Ft. McCoy UMC in Ft. McCoy Florida. ( found your memorial for Rev. Skipper on find-a-grave (

Rev. Skipper was a pastor of the Burbank Methodist Ė which folder and merged with the Ft. McCoy church, thus he is part of our history. I know that he attended Birmingham College in 1915 and served about a dozen churches in north central Florida over the course of his career. But, donít know not much else about him and donít have a picture.

Just thought I would check and see if you would allow me to use your gravestone picture in our church history (website history section).

All the best, -Hal

Roberts Family
I am looking for my relatives. The story is long and bittersweet. My beloved grandmother was raised in the Baptist Children's home due to the death of her father when she was 6 years old. Her mother could not afford to care for 7 children... the year 1909. She attempted to keep them for a year after her husband's death, but at various times had to place one child after another in the BCH. Elliott Roberts and Angeline Roberts are my great great grand parents as I have recently found out due to the records still being available in the BCH. Their son was John Madison Roberts who married Cora Barnard. They had 7 children: Rena, Cassie, Alvah, Thomas William, Angeline(my grandmother), Elliot, and John( Cora was pregnant with little John when his father,John Madison, died). Is there any way for you to add a picture to his listing (J M Roberts birth and death unknown) or all of those that are in the family plot? My father has since passed on with all of his siblings with exception to one. My aunt is the last remaining child of Angie (Angeline's) and she will turn 90 in June. I would so very much like to include any photos into the booklet I am making for her as all in our family have missed knowing who all of these people were/are. Thank you for doing all that you do for those of us that no longer live in areas in which we can go to view for ourselves. Your interest and devotion fills a void many of us have had for years. Again, many thanks and blessings.
