Bio and Links
I've always been fascinated with grave sites, visited cemeteries, made rubbings, took photos, etc. and must say that find-a-grave is an ideal site.

I've worked on family history projects for over 35 years and will for as long as I can. I'm more than happy to share family history with anyone interested.

The primary names I research are STROOPE, KEA, Pitts, Howton, Trammel, Hopper, Hale, Thetford, CARPER, BARTON, Lyon, Phipps, Griffith, Ellison, Shumate and many allied lines.

When I document a grave site, I try to include some information on the parents, siblings, marriage, etc. hoping this will help someone identify their relative. In some cases, when recording my line, or lines, I've created memorials for as much of the cemetery as I've had access to.

I'm not likely to post obits. I prefer to glean information from any I receive.

I'll be glad to transfer your family member to you. Always remember the FAG # for the memorial page and, of course, your FAG #. PLEASE do not send me a big list of names with no numbers included... thanks... I really liberal with transfers, would like to see family manage their ancestors.

If I have grave site information in error, please contact me so that corrections can be made.

Recent projects include:

--Gig Harbor and Haven of Rest Cemeteries, Gig Harbor, Pierce County, Washington

--JCC Smith Cemetery in Texas

--Knight of Pythias and Sunset Lane Memorial Park, Port Orchard, Kitsap County, Washington

--Lovington and Resthaven Cemeteries, Lovington, Lea County, New Mexico

--Mountain View Memorial Park, Lakewood, Pierce County, Washington

--Mount Calvary Cemetery (Santa Barbara Cemetery) , Albuquerque, Bernalillo County, New Mexico

--Calvary, Old Pioneer and Tacoma Cemeteries, Tacoma, Pierce County, Washington

--Riverside Cemetery in Vassar, Tuscola County, Michigan

RE: Joseph Nurse
I though this was your ancestor/relative? How come you wanted him transferred to you?

Joseph Nurse

I am not a "Nurse" descendant, although they are distant "in-laws." I transferred Joseph Nurse to you, assuming you were a direct descendant.

Sincerely, Ruth Jaynes

RE: Griffith ancestry
Hi Kathy
Thank you for sharing your lineage with me as well. I love connecting with people that share lineage with me. It tickles me that we share a Great X# Grandfather in Daniel Griffith. I would love to communicate with you more regarding it. Perhaps share any old stories we know and you may be able to help me fill in some blanks too. I'm now determined to find the burial of Judeth's husband John T.Griffith. I have a few gut feelings I'm going to follow. It's the same feeling that led me to Grandpa Ike. Please feel free to communicate with me via my email at I will provide you more information on living lineage via email.

RE: Griffith ancestry
My lineage coming from the Judeth Rakes Griffith you messaged me about is as follows
John T & Judeth Rakes Griffith
Isaac & Lucinda Lilly Griffith
John Russell & Mary Laura Skaggs Griffith
Orla Paris "OP" & Ollie Mae Rickman Griffith
Dennie Eugene "Gene" Worley & Mary Rosalie Griffith
Then my father then me.
I finally found Isaac and Lucinda's place of burial this past Monday. The area is so grown up I'm going to have to go back asap with tools so I can clear to get better pictures and see if any other markers were obscured by the abundant over growth.

Kathy, do you have any idea if Clarence Jr is alive and where he may live? I have been looking at the Krueger family and found Norma with a son and had no good info on the father until I found this memorial established by you. Let me know if you have any good info. Thanks.

You sent me the following statement in my email. What source do you have for her parents ? I have 2 other sets and neither are these. Seems to be a hard family to prove. Thank you

Ruth's parents are Thomas Hale and Rachel Sheridan, both from Virginia. Her known siblings are Elizabeth, Jonathan Sheridan, Francis Marion, Thomas and William Hale.
