Bio and Links
I have been researching my Tipton ancestors for about five years. Although there are many Tiptons in Tennessee, where I currently live, none of them appear to be related within the last six generation or so. So I am dependent on others for most of the photos and other data about my relatives. I recently joined Find A Grave to try to pay back the favor.

When I visit a cemetery in response to a photo request, I usually try to take photos of other headstones in the area. If there is not already a Find A Grave memorial for the person, I will create one based on the information found on the headstone. Since these are generally not related to me, I am willing to transfer the memorial to other members, even if they do not meet the relationship guidelines listed in the Find A Grave FAQs. Just ask. (If the memorial is for someone actually related to me, I will still consider the transfer but will be less inclined to deviate from the FAQ guidelines.)

Although photos published in Find A Grave are considered to be copyrighted by the photographer, feel free to copy my photos to other sites as long as the appropriate credit is given. Since the Find A Grave photos are generally published at reduced resolution, if you want a high-resolution copy, drop me an e-mail and I will send you a copy of the original file. Please include the name and Find A Grave memorial number for the photos that you want.

I try to respond to photo requests within Cumberland County (Crossville), Tennessee, and the immediately surrounding counties. However, if the request is for somebody in a private cemetery, I would appreciate it if the requesting party would make the initial contact for permission to access the property. I will try to help with getting contact information if necessary.

RE: Wallace James Hadley
You're welcome and good luck.
I was going to the library to do some look-ups, thought I would check for new requests before I left, found Wallace in the Riverview book, I knew the section he was in, stopped at the cemetery on the way home from the library and got the photo.
Sure wish it worked like that all the time.

Thanks for bringing this to my attention. I changed the dob to Dec. 9, 1930 but like you, I wish we had a birth certificate to verify his birth.
