Bio and Links
Bio Photo I transfer memorials that are not related to me. Please follow the guidelines and state your relationship.

I prefer not to see death certificates on memorials that I manage. Do we really need to know exactly how someone died? The descriptions of injuries can be very graphic. Homicides and suicides...Do we really need to know the details? We are supposed to be honoring the deceased.

My families are Pillow, Jordan, Yates, Cash, Campbell and Mays.

Feel free to use my pictures. That's why I post them here.

Please be sure of your facts before submitting edits. I recently received and edit to connect a spouse to my husband's uncle. His uncle's wife is still living. I rejected the edit. As a result I will be watching these edits more closely.


I wish there was a limit to how many edits can be submitted in a day. I just received 93 in one day. Don't get me wrong. I appreciate the edits particularly maiden names.

Hi Joan, Thanks so much for the photos of the 3 Johnstone markers. Also I appreciate your noting the errors on the dates and first name, that I found on the Washington & Lee University site for the cemetery.

It truly takes a village of teamwork. Appreciated,
