Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Patricia, but mostly called Pat. I have four adult children, a boy and three girls. I also have 7 grandchildren, 4 boys and 3 girls. I have sort of dabbled in genealogy off and on for years, never really as seriously as some people, but have tried to get a little background of our family together just in case any of the grandchildren would be interested in their heritage one of these days.

I have always enjoyed taking pictures and have taken pictures for years of grave sites of my family and friends, so Find A Grave is right down my alley. I hope that I will be able to make some contribution that will be of some help to others. If you would like a copy of any pictures that I take, you have my permission to use them.

I live in South Central Tennessee and post mostly to the cemeteries in this area and some in North Central Alabama. I usually get my information from the Funeral Home obits, and some from the newspaper obits, so the information that is entered is all that I have. I also try to make trips to the local cemeteries to take gravestone pictures as often as possible.

I am not related to most of the sites that I am listing. If you find a member of your family among my listings and would like to assume the listing so you can enter more personal information about your loved one, please inform me. If you would like for me to add additional information, such as a correction of a date, or a link to a spouse or parent, or any other addition or correction, please let me know. For any transfers, please let me know your relationship. Also, you could consider setting up a virtual cemetery to include all of your relatives in one place regardless of their actual location.

To request a transfer, addition, or correction please go to the "Edit" tab on the memorial page. If you are a member of "Find A Grave", be sure that you are signed in to your account. Then go to "Suggest a Correction". You can write your request to me there under "suggest any other correction or addition". This will give me a direct link to the memorial that you are referring to. For any transfers, please let me know your relationship. Please allow sufficient time for me to respond, as I am not on the computer 24/7.

Randy Stanley #96265404
Hello, Just to let you know I have attached a picture of Randy's headstone to his memorial and it looks like he shares a headstone with his father. You have him connected to another Billy Stanley as his father. I have created a memorial for Bill Warren Stanley (#182520596) in Mount Garner if you feel this is correct and want to add him as his father. Thank You & Have a great day, J.Hall

RE: Wiley Smith Towry
Thanks, Pat! I understand how this mistake happened and I'm sure you are right about the family wanting a memorial here. but I think some researchers on Ancestry are getting him confused with his son by the same name. This Wiley, father, died in the War before his son was born in the same year. So there are many errors out there.

Thanks again for your help and for teaching me a new word. Centotaph. I don't think I've ever seen one on Find A Grave.

Wiley Smith Towery
Pat, thanks for all your hard work for Find A Grave. Many are in your debt, including me. I would like to suggest a correction on Wiley Smith Towery/Towry, born 16 May 1895 in Lincoln Co.,Tenn.
Died: 29 Sept 1918 at Bellicourt, Dept. de l'Aisne, Picardie, France.

His Parents are John Hosea Towry and Lon Pinnie Wheeler Turner.

However, you have listed him twice as his own sibling.....with the same birth dates. Would you please remove?

I'm not sure of his siblings yet but will advise you when I am. He is a distant cousin of mine. My great grandfather is Joseph Marion Towery.
Thank you!
