|Bio and Links|
Ever since I was a small kid, I've always been interested in my ancestors. I'm sure I drove the older members of my family nuts by always asking who was married to whom and who their kids were.|
As an adult I've traced my lineage back four to seven generations and still enjoy working on filling in the blanks.
I also love to roam around in cemeteries and look for odd and different headstones. I have a scrapbook of photos of these stones that I started years ago and still add to it every chance I get.
My favorite is a stone that I found in a local cemetery in Bentonville, Arkansas... it's a man's headstone and carved by the monument company is this phrase, "I told you I was sick". I literally had to walk up to the stone and touch it to believe it was really there.
I first started using find-a-grave to look up famous people's gravestones, such as Bruce and Brandon Lee, those have to be two of my favorites, they are beautiful.
I finally, just in the last couple of weeks started working on adding information on the cemeteries where I have relatives buried. It's a great way to save and share information.
If you would like to either correct or add to a bio, or contribute any information regarding any memorial I have placed, please feel free to contact me. I welcome all information. Or I'll be more than happy to transfer any memorial page to friends or family. Please put "Find A Grave" in the subject field. Thank you!
If you have a minute please visit daddy and mommie's memorial pages. Joe W. Vaughn., Rhoda V. Vaughn.
and for my gramps, he was/is my special human. Will Vaughn.
...and for all of my FAG friends out there, I want to thank you for all the flowers left on my loved ones pages and all the sponsorships.
Only a member of this awesome family here on Find a Grave could know how much all of this is appreciated! :)
This is a link to some great pics of some of the military elite & medal of honor recipients buried in Arlington National Cemetery.
This link will take you to the official Arlington Cemetery site.
I also contribute to a site that focuses on just gravestone in Arkansas. There are so many older cemeteries and the stones are fast fading away. If you have pics of any stones from a cemetery in Arkansas feel free to enter the stone and or the cemetery. It's a relatively new site so everyone with Arkansas gravestones is welcome, the more the merrier! Here is the link.
Enjoy! Bev :)
I just added the dog that 'owned' me for a few blessed years, visit my beloved boy if you get a chance, Sandy Myers.
THE STONE SEEKER
Wandering among the stones I see
The stones so weathered and worn
‘Tis difficult to find the date
On which the babe was born
I stare at the stone and am struck with awe
At the life that I knew was gone
This was someone's child, a babe so sweet
With loved ones to carry on
So I take a photo for all to see
For the family that remains
An everlasting memory of
A child of God's domain
I brush the weeds back from the stone
And say a silent prayer
For the babes that had no chance to live
And for mothers everywhere
The dove calls out it's mourning song
Among the stones so still
Echoes of the woes, through time
The choirs of despair
The stone will someday perish
The flowers will be gone
But a photo now remains of this
Their memory lives on!
And so my friend, don't hesitate
To film the weathered stone
Those who live within your hearts
Are never truly gone

|Travis Holt||RE: Manda Self|
I took that info from the book 'Newton County Cemeteries' but unfortunately, I can't confirm that. Just thought I'd send it to you for your consideration. I have found some other mistakes in that book, though!
Find A Grave Memorial# 14671196
You state they had 10 Children. I am wondering if I have my information confused or if one of these children is a grandchild.
Please see the census in 1900 Jefferson & Walnut Townships, Newton, Arkansas, United States
"United States Census, 1900," database with images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:M36R-RCK : accessed 7 May 2017), James Edgmon, Jefferson & Walnut Townships, Newton, Arkansas, United States; citing enumeration district (ED) 87, sheet 1B, family 16, NARA microfilm publication T623 (Washington, D.C.: National Archives and Records Administration, 1972.); FHL microfilm 1,240,070.
Can you share with me what you think?

|Vonda Dihm||RE: pics for Henry & Cora|
Thanks Beverly. That is strange - in the list there is an individual photo shown for Henry but not for Cora but there is definitely a photo on her Memorial. Have no idea what happened. Will see if I can fix it. Thanks for the heads-up.
No do not have a photo of Henry and Cora when they were older. Since Henry is my grandfather's brother you would think I should have one. I know Henry went to Oklahoma to visit my grandfather when he was younger but evidently they did not keep in touch in later years. Or it could be there were pictures and they were lost. My grandparents lost of lot of their possessions in a house fire.

Thank you Bev for the sweet gif of Bailey. I can't tell you how much I appreciate it.

Thanks for the info! Just ran across that in the cemetery book and thought I'd send it to you, just in case! Have a great day!
