Bio and Links
Bio Photo Born in hamilton county ohio but raised in knox county ky around the girdler comunity. i had six brothers and no sisters. we were raised poor, most times up a holler. proud of my raising though. it lets me know how much more we have now that so many take for granted. i give god the praise and glory for all things.

like everyone else, I do make mistakes. if you see one i,ve made i have no problem correcting it if you bring it to my attention. i think our loved ones deserve the respect we can give them through find-A-grave. sponsor a loved one.

please don,t add a bio to the flower section of a memorial that i have created, send me the info and i will add it with proper credit to you.

if I have added a photo to a memorial of yours you wish me to remove, please let me know along with the f.a.g memorial number. i try to get as many photo request as i can. if you have a request for a photo that has no directions or map to the cemetery, in most cases i will just pass it up. so, if you will add directions to the cemetery beside your request you might have more luck getting a photo of your stone.

if you add a stone photo to a memorial that is much clearer than the one i have on it,
please let me know and i will delete my photo rather than clutter up the memorial. Please ask before using one of my cemetery photo,s. I have done the leg work the least others can do is ask.

I sometimes send out obituaries to a memorial, this is to help connect deceased family members.

I want to thank everyone that has help link family members to their memorials. thank you one and all.

I see that there are quite a few pictures of the same angle on this memorial. Would you be so kind as to remove at least one of the roadside shots ( I am not sure how many were yours)...She is a g g grandmother of my step mother. Thank you

Cleo Campbell Memorial
First I want to thank you for the fine work you and others do on this site. If you do not mind, I would like to point out an error found in your memorial for:

Cleo Marie ellsworth Campbell (1913 - 2008)

Aunt Cleo was not an Ellsworth. She was my mother's half sister by an earlier marriage. Should you require additional info, please feel free to email me at I will provide whatever proof or information you require concerning Cleo's memorial.

Wynn Stones
Mike can you tell me when you take a picture of an old stone do you photo shop it to try and make it look as new as possible.My grandparents are buried in the Indian Creek Cemetery Chance Cemetery their names are John Johnny Wynn and Nancy Wynn.And an uncle Canner Wynn I seen where a picture was posted in 2006 by someone else it looks old and should. I also seen where you up dated it in 2016 it look new it looks like the stones may have been replaced and I cannot find a family member who may have done it.And if it has been would love to thank them.Thanks Betty

Mike, I would just like to say thank you for all the photographs that you have taken and posted to Find A Grave. I would not have been able to see them without all your hard work, and I do know how hard you have to work to get them.
