Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello,

I'm a native of Logan County Kentucky and Amateur genealogist and historic site conservationist. Gravestone preservation and repairs are among my interests. Also photography and natural landscapes.

Please if you are a family member of a person I have created a memorial for, simply request me and I'll gladly transfer the memorial with photos. As usual all my photos are copy written so proper requests do apply as per the rules of Find a Grave.

Also PHOTOS: Please assume all my photos are copywriter privileged and ask me for your copy for personal family use only.
No dart boards made from my photos please.

Reclaiming abandoned Graveyards I have experience with. Archeological issues can arise, detail is important from first site to attempting to clean a stone to read it. Document everything.

If ever a question on something call the local historical society before acting.

Remember laws pertaining to visiting a graveyard and land owners property, vary State to state.

For safety sake, before waking onto someones property call upon the land owner before encroaching upon the property to see if it is the grave of a family member. Some land owners are very touchy about people hanging out on there property.

Rural Grave yards are a safety hazard, be careful.
Go with a friend, and a phone with a camera. Documentation.

I now reside in Franklin County, Va.

I only made the memorial NOT the relationship links. I'm not responsible for error relationship links made by others and cannot unlink.

RE: Child of OJ and Racheal, Hattie Ruth Knight
The link for the parents for memorials must be added to the child's memorial. If you are a member of the Find A Grave family, you can submit these edits directly to the person that maintains the memorial. I have sent the edit requests for the two children of O.J. & Rachael Knight that you mentioned in the messages that you left for me. Feel free to contact me if you need any help.

RE: Thank You for the Photo(s)
You're welcome. When I visit Twin cemetery I try to stop and pay my respects at their grave site.

I've known Julie's family all my life. Good people.

I will get you a name of a company that does that if you want to me to. I think it's less that 100.00
