Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi!

A little about me...I'm a amateur photographer/genealogist/findagraver as well as an extremely proud mommy to six children (3 girls/3boys) and 16 grandchildren! :) I've been working on my own family tree since about 1994...not long after my Grama passed away...she raised me and so I do occasionally refer to her as my Mommy. Family that I am working on are Sanders, Denny/Denney, Cummins, Daglish, McCord, Heater, Galbreath and Lobb. I live with my best Ed as I call him! and our doggie, Jettie. I found Findagrave while researching our family and have been a die hard "Graver" since!

Update: Married my best friend, My Ed, Oct 3, 2014 and am now officially a "new" person lol

PLEASE If you want to request a transfer or updates to memorials do that through the "edit" tab/suggest a correction!!!! When I have many many many edits/transfers/messages to read and answer it gets frustrating to have to look up the memorials for each request when if done correctly I can just click on the link included with the suggestion/edit...quicker for me to get it done for you :) :)

If someone has an issue with any memorial I am involved with please be polite and adult and send a note through the SAC feature and I'll gladly do whatever I can to make you happy! Leave me a rude hateful message and I'll first delete it and then forget about it. That way I'm returning the favor!

From Find A Grave's FAQ...
"The ultimate goal should be to have meaningful, accurate memorials that honor those who have passed away, regardless of who created the memorial or who maintains it."

I have no problem whatsoever doing any updates or links to my memorials and definitely will transfer if I'm not related and you have a direct connection.
I love being able to link up entire families as far back or forward as possible!!! It's like a big puzzle and I also love puzzles :) It gives me a great feeling to get one done! I always try to find a little information to add to the memorials that I create so that it is more than the mere fact that someone was born and they died. Sometimes I'm unsuccessful but believe me I usually spend some time searching before I give up! Stubborness I guess lol.
If I ever add a picture to a memorial that you would rather I didn't please let me know but I prefer to hear from the "manager" of the memorial.

Thank you for documenting this grave! Some day someone will come along and that will be just the connection they need and they will be most appreciative that you had the interest and took the time to document a grave with no information on it but "B A S"! I am adding you to "My Friend" list. There are so many really great contributors on Find-A-Grave. I haven't met so many good, kind people in one community before. I am very grateful for Find-A-Grave for many reasons. It must be great or Ancestry would not have bought it!!! I find the information I need from Find A Grave quickly and painlessly from this Find A Grave site. I AM ADDING YOU TO MY FAVORITE CONTRIBUTOR SITE. Thank you. Keep up the good work!

I noticed that there is another memorial for my Aunt Josie, it was put up in 2011 (75026968).
Your memorial is more informative and accurate, thank you for that. Is there any way you and the lady who put up the previous memorial could merge them? Thanks so much in advance!

I see you took the photo of this child. She is related to me. Would it be at all possible for you to return to the headstone and unbury it as much as possible? Chalking over the inscription is not harnful as well. This might give a better rendering of the info on the headstone. Thank you very much.

another grave in Pleasant Valley Cemetery
Hi, just thought Iíd share with you that I stumbled upon this woman who was buried at Pleasant Valley Cemetery in Madison County in 1915. I found this on her death certificate, so I suppose she really was buried there. Her name was Vada P. (Day) Miner, wife of Hugh L. Miner. They had a premature baby, William Elbert Mynor,that died 3-6-1913 and is buried there also according to the death cert. In the 1910 census she had 2 sons: Harold and Carroll. She married Hugh on 19 Nov 1904. Miner is spelled several ways, and I havenít found Hugh elsewhere. They may be connected to the Thomas H. Miner buried there. Thanks very much for the fantastic work you have done! Everywhere I turn when Iím searching, I find youíve been there to pave the way!
