Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Patricia, but mostly called Pat. I have four adult children, a boy and three girls. I also have 7 grandchildren, 4 boys and 3 girls. I have sort of dabbled in genealogy off and on for years, never really as seriously as some people, but have tried to get a little background of our family together just in case any of the grandchildren would be interested in their heritage one of these days.

I have always enjoyed taking pictures and have taken pictures for years of grave sites of my family and friends, so Find A Grave is right down my alley. I hope that I will be able to make some contribution that will be of some help to others. If you would like a copy of any pictures that I take, you have my permission to use them.

I live in South Central Tennessee and post mostly to the cemeteries in this area and some in North Central Alabama. I usually get my information from the Funeral Home obits, and some from the newspaper obits, so the information that is entered is all that I have. I also try to make trips to the local cemeteries to take gravestone pictures as often as possible.

I am not related to most of the sites that I am listing. If you find a member of your family among my listings and would like to assume the listing so you can enter more personal information about your loved one, please inform me. If you would like for me to add additional information, such as a correction of a date, or a link to a spouse or parent, or any other addition or correction, please let me know. For any transfers, please let me know your relationship. Also, you could consider setting up a virtual cemetery to include all of your relatives in one place regardless of their actual location.

To request a transfer, addition, or correction please go to the "Edit" tab on the memorial page. If you are a member of "Find A Grave", be sure that you are signed in to your account. Then go to "Suggest a Correction". You can write your request to me there under "suggest any other correction or addition". This will give me a direct link to the memorial that you are referring to. For any transfers, please let me know your relationship. Please allow sufficient time for me to respond, as I am not on the computer 24/7.

Tommy Sharpe of Mount Pleasant TN
I see your page for a woman identified as a sister of Tommy Sharpe of Mount Pleasant in which it states that he pre-deceased her. It is Memorial# 100011427

Just wondering if you know anything about his death, burial, etc. I can find nothing on Findagrave or by Google search. Last I knew, he was alive in 1983.

Thanks for any info you can provide.

Pat: I am not doing anything on Find A Grave now as I am working full time on my DNA. I have transferred this to you to do what you wish with me memorial.

I have another person saying I have a duplicate of two memorials that I was not aware of. They were both friends of mine and I always tried to check to see if there was duplicate before I add mine. I think they must have put theirs on a wrong cemetery and then corrected them. I have seen this happen before. I still don't know what I will do about them.

Thank you and I agree. So much competition. I only care to add family, friends, and pets / animal obits, and once in a while upon a request or such. I love Find a Grave because I love history and I love to see people's memorials because it is a great way to pay respects for a person who has passed. I appreciate your help and as I said, if I cam assist you in amy way please let me know!

God bless,

Thank you Miss Pat.I am so happy! I also wanted to ask you if you have ever had this happen: You know you added a memorial but another person adds one for that person because they said they didn't see you had done one.....I ask because a friend of mine passed November 1 this week and I added their memorial. Today, I did a search and it didn't show up. Well after the arrangements were made today, I added the cemetery and it shows up now. Do you think sometimes a memorial won't show up until the cemetery is added? I also did look for Paul before I added mine, but it didn't show....maybe the date of death not being posted can make it not show either? It's odd. You've been a member longer than I have, so I value your input. I appreciate the transfer. I appreciate your help and support!If I can ever take a photo for you here in Huntsville or area please let me know!

God bless,

Hello Muss Pat,

I did check before to see if Paul was listed but his name did not pop up for some reason I would ask you if you would consider transferring to me if you don't mind. I am not into numbers. It is very rare that I have added memorials for those other than family or close friends. You can see I only manage less than 300 memorials. Paul was so sweet and we had a lot of great times. He use to make me and my daughter t-shirts when she was little. Before I moved to Alabama, I was a member of the church he remained a deacon at until he passed on. Thank you for your consideration and have a blessed evening!

Hello Miss Pat,

I wanted to ask you about a memorial for Paul Wilson Carden.

Mr. Carden was a friend of mine and my family; in fact, he is my niece's grandfather, and has been a family friend for many years.I did his memorial the same night he passed after my sister called and informed me of his passing on October 30, 2016.

I noticed today that you had a memorial for him, but yours states that is was added in 2007! I don't understand that- he did not die until 9 years after the date listed on yours!

Could you please let me know what is going on? If you did one, I do not understand why the year 2007 is listed. My memorial is # 172018380.

Thank & God Bless!
