Hello, Teresa and I have been friends for years but only in the last couple of years did we discover our "unnatural" obsession with cemeteries. Our families think we are nuts and maybe we are but we LOVE being able to help people connect with their loved ones who have passed on. We think that Find A Grave is one of, if not THE best site for family researchers. Each memorial, if you are lucky, has the deceased name, birth and death dates, place of birth and death, place of burial, parents, children, siblings, and can help complete someones family tree. It helps loved ones who live thousands of miles away to be able to see the headstone and/or final resting place of their ancestors. We have made it our goal to find, document and photograph each and every cemetery in Choctaw Co. MS. (where we live), the ones that are known and especially the ones that are abandoned and forgotten. It doesn't matter how far back in the woods we have to hike, nor the millions of virgin thorns we seem to attract, all the mud, water, chiggers, snakes, rain, snow, sleet or hail.......ok maybe not so much the last five things. We are dedicated to our "passion" and plan to venture out to other counties that need our attention. God Bless all of our fellow "Find A Gravers" for all that you are doing for Find A Grave.|
Note: In light of some "negative" messages we have received lately I would like to make something clear.............Teresa and I are NOT in this for the number or memorials added, or the number of memorials managed, or the number of photo requests fulfilled or the number of photos we take. We are also NOT in this for the credit or the recognition. We are in this simply and more importantly to help people who are doing their family history, to find their ancestors to help complete their family tree for themselves and their future family. We are also in this to make sure that people who have passed on have something to show they were here, their life was important and they are remembered..........When we post a memorial or a photo we go to the cemetery they are listed in and make POSITIVELY SURE they are where they are listed. So many times we have photographed someone's headstone only to find out they are listed in the wrong cemetery. If someone lives out of town, state, or even the country and go to the cemetery that their loved one's are listed in, only to be disappointed because they can't find their stone anywhere. We have also noticed that sometimes even the obituary is wrong, so we never list someone until we have gone to the cemetery and checked it out for ourselves. We take a lot of pride in what we are doing and it is important to us that we do it right. When we get an e-mail or message of thanks it makes all our hard, but very rewarding work, worth it........

|Barbara Wiley Hamby||Victor Arnold Duncan|
his memorial number is 113299056....You added a picture to him...and was wondering if you could add the pictures for his wife...her name is Virginia Johnson Duncan (153352352)....i hope you are still able to add her picture.
Your amazing work in Winston County has completed once branch of my family and with a marker showing, it gives me the security of knowing the information is correct for location of burial. Thank you so very much!

Sorry about previous message, I hit the wrong key.
Dewitt is showing up in two different cemeteries, Enon Cumberland Presbyterian Church Cemetery and Weir Cemetery.
Can you clarify?

I think you have the right Rosa. My granddaddy John Wesley Horton's granddaddy was Thomas Watkins Clay.#54578766. Thomas Watkins had a son James L Clay #63105854,so this is probably his son. And my grandmother Mattie Cleo Cook Horton had a sister Rosa Cook. I guess they met through my grandparents. Now I have to find out about the Moore. Thank you so much! I only found out about Find A Grave about a month ago but I love it. I have found so many stories about my family.

I've always wanted to go to Yellowstone! I am oddly obsessed with volcanoes :) I did a DNA test through ancestry as well. There's a website called GEDmatch.com that will compare DNA from Ancestry, 23andMe, and FamilyTreeMaker (I think that's what it's called) but only for those who have uploaded their raw data to the website.
