Bio and Links
Bio Photo I take great pride in adding details to any memorials and especially adding extra info and links to my own personal family that I can verify. If I manage an acct I try to add as much to the memorial as possible to make it more personal for each person.

I do NOT research edit submissions! If you find any info on an acct I manage that you feel isn't accurate, please let me know and I will certainly look into the matter. Thank you!

I am a very active baseball mom of three school teams and travel ball team as well as concession manager and it is baseball season now! I do check in but I may not be able to fill a request or edit nearly as fast as I normally do. Please be patient as my family does come first.

***sometimes when I post a picture from my I-pad while there at the cemetery, it posts sideways but will appear upright for me. Please let me know if I miss this so I can repost the picture. Thanks.

Anyone may use my photos for anything other than commercial purposes (unless express permission is given) or the creation of duplicate memorials on Find A Grave. You may copy and post them to other websites or use them in your family history or tree. For non-commercial uses and exempting creation of duplicate memorials my photos are gifts.

Helping those who live so far away from their deceased loved ones is not only a selfless act of kindness on your part, it is a cherished and priceless gift that you give to us. Your time and effort are much appreciated; you're an asset to this web site!

John Johns, Sr
Hi, I am trying to prove that John Johns, Sr who was born in Italy and died in 1925 in Etowah, Ala is actually Giovanni Di Giovanni, my uncle. I see you posted his parents' names as Charley and Mary, which matches Giovanni's parents-Vincenzo and Maria. Di Giovanni was often changed to Di John, John, or Johns. Vincenzo was often changed to Charley, don't know why they picked Charley. Where did you find your information? Thank you for sharing.

RE: Marty Scott memorial #141131598
Hi, Maria;

I've been doing further research, but still not sure exactly what the situation is either.

I am a distant cousin on Martha's side.

Since Martha died so much earlier then Martin did, I wonder if it could have been something like a place was bought/reserved by him for himself, beside her, at the time she died; but then he remarried, moved to Texas, died and was buried there; and the spot was never used.

I will update you if I make any progress in my research that might be relevant.

Take care!
