Bio and Links
Bio Photo I feel these memorials should be maintained by family whenever possible. With that in mind, if I am not related to the person, I will be happy to transfer the memorial.

If I have a picture on the memorial you want to use, feel free, you don't need to ask.

I surely don't understand some contributors that hold your families memorials "Hostage", If you are not related then "Give it up", I absolutely believe in KARMA...(and Ghost) but that's another story...

I spend most of my free time working on my Family history and find roaming old cemeteries is amazing. Some of the headstones I see are nearly unreadable, some are eroded to the point they can no longer be read. If we don't try to preserve these at least by photos, they will be lost forever, no one will ever know who they were. By taking photos and sharing the info, maybe someone who is searching will find who they are seeking.

I'm back in Texas now but spent a few months in Pennsylvania. I found the cemeteries there are
unique and some so very old. I loved it and the trees and grass, lol everything was so GREEN!

Those we love remain with us for love itself lives on. Cherished memories will never fade, because ones loved is gone. Those we love can never be, more than a thought apart,for as long as there is a memory, they live with in our heart.

I saw this on another contributors page (R Schuerer #46794628), It is so true. Makes you think, don't it.....

I believe that a soul is awakening whenever someone remembers and thinks about the deceased person no matter how many years have passed. The soul may be an unknown, a distant family member or a very close relative. God knows the soul of this person who is never forgotten by Him.

It seems the lives of acquaintances or certain relatives, whom you had the personal opportunity of knowing during their lifetime, become more significant after their death. Upon reflection of their lives, you realize the importance of their individual needs that you did not fully appreciate while living. Little or no gratitude was ever expressed by you in appreciation of knowing a particular person.

It appears that we take life so much for granted that we miss the real important happenings and occasions. So many memories of life's events are so easily and quickly forgotten. Suddenly you realize upon death or some time afterwards, the significance of that person's life on your own.
Opportunities of love and/or friendship lost forever.

No person is ever truly dead until the last person forgets to remember them.

Joseph Oglevee photo
Hi Wichita Falls, I believe your excellent photo of Joseph Oglevee’s stone on memorial #52815053 actually belongs on memorial #76174492. Thank you for all your work!

RE: memorial # 101730308
Wichita Falls the photo that is displayed is the sign from the cemetery. if you check others buried in the same cemetery you will see the same photo shows on them. The photo says that it is the cemetery photo. It is the only identifying landmark to show the cemetery. I will not remove the photo you can check with find a grave maybe they can remove it from just that memorial. You can also request someone to take a photo of the headstone and add it to the memorial.

Beulah Maude Lumpkins
I see that you are related to her. She would be my GGrandmother on my fathers side.

I noticed on one of the pages you maintain you listed her name as Beulah Anne Maude (Dick) Lumpkins.

Do you have any info you can relating to the (Dick) part? I am unaware of any marriages/children for Beulah outside of my GGrandfathers kids (Isaac Sprague).

Thank You
Evidently you left a message pertaining to my Aunt Bessie Lankford New who is interred at Rosemont. That was very nice of you to do that..since Aunt Bessie has been gone for many years. She died 12 years before I was born so I didnt know her either. Sister to my Grandmother Lucy Mae Lankford. Next to her memorial is Annie Scarberry, my G Grandmother and the mother of Bessie and Lucy. I purchased their stones several years ago. Thanks again..I hope you get this message.

RE: Robbie B. McMahan Memorial# 111791221
I'm so sorry for the really, really late reply as I don't check this site very often. Unfortunately my grandmother is not the one you are looking for as my grandmother's maiden name was Bixler. Anything else I can help you with just please let me know. Good luck in your search! :)
