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.

Why does it look like from the photos posted that Susan Payton Ross Gibson has two very different tombstones?

Leven Green tombstone picture
We are the Nelson County C.A. R. Children of the American Revolution and we are compiling a book of the Revolutionary War Soldiers buried in Nelson county Ky. We hope to make it out to the cemetery during fall break, but if we cannot, May we use your tombstone pictures and V.A. Marker picture of Leven Green tombstones to use in our book? We will of course give you credit for taking it.
Thank you for all you do on find a grave. Pat

Ernest Eugene Walser
This is my father-in-law. His date of death is 27 February 1972, Panama City, Florida.

We are headed to Anderson Indiana next week to put up granite headstones for my husbands parents as the ones his mother did aren't exactly correct or complete. Thought you'd like to know.
We have decided if we will leave the old ones or not as they are at their feet for some weird reason.
My Husband is Robert Alan Walser and Thomas Walser was his half brother.
His dad is:
Ernest Eugene Walser
B: 20 May 1901, Alton, Illinois USA
D: 27 February 1972, Panama City, Florida

Lyyli Amanda Helminen Walser
B: 03 October, 1902, Tampere, Finland
D: 11 January 1978, Panama City, Florida

Her name is currently listed as Lillian but that was an american name she used and not her real name
Thanks for your interest in cemeteries. I do Genealogy and love it.

Please disregard my edit suggestions, it is unclear to me at this moment if the two names are linked and what the correct spelling is.

RE: notley swart
You may be correct, but this one I found From the 1870 census:

Notley Swarts
in the 1870 United States Federal Census

Name: Notley Swarts
Age in 1870: 31
Birth Year: abt 1839
Birthplace: Indiana
Dwelling Number: 124
Home in 1870: Pipe Creek, Madison, Indiana
Race: White
Gender: Male
Occupation: Farmer
Male Citizen Over 21: Y
Personal Estate Value: 850
Real Estate Value: 1250
Household Members:
Name Age
Notley Swarts 31
Agnes Swarts 33
William Swarts 9
Alonzo Swarts 7

Both Notley's died between 1870 & 1880. The younger is not the son of the older. I recommend you not change the memorial if you are certain of the age. Thanks

Dan E, Adams
There are two memorials for him; yours, #131760301, under "Dan E. Adams", with a photo of his joint monument with his wife; and a second one, #136501960, under the name "Don Eddie Adams", created by RATU50.

The correct name is Dan Eddie Adams.

I am sending a note about this to the other contributor also.
