Bio and Links
Bio Photo As a preacher's kid, I spent plenty of time, even as a child, in cemeteries. At first it was for funerals, Decoration Day, or work days to clean up the weeds in the church cemetery.

From that I developed my own love of strolling through cemeteries, paying my respects, reading the interesting information on tombstones, and enjoying the peace, quiet and unique beauty in each cemetery.

Now I have the added joy of studying my families' genealogy. I only wish I had had the time to do it when my parents and grandmothers were alive to reap the benefits with me. Find A Grave has been a wonderful asset to my research, and has even helped me find a couple of new cousins. It has also given me great comfort in being able to add memorials and photos for family members. It has also been a great satisfaction to add memorial for friends and even perfect strangers.

Please remember when addressing another contributor that common courtesy is very important. Acknowledging the time and effort that contributor put into making a memorial, using phrases like "please" and "thank you" is received much better than "do this because I said so"! Also, please explain exactly how you are related to the deceased, and remember that you may not be the only person who has requested a transfer. Please be advised that I will NOT do transfers for "give me this memorial because..." Doing all transfers is at the discretion of the original contributor, and transfers for other than immediate family, per Find A Grave standards, is totally up to the original contributor. Courtesy, kindness and a thank you note, whether or not you receive the transfer, are always welcome. Please remember that you can add pictures to a memorial without a transfer, and can update it by submitting proper information to the original contributor.

If you would me to update a memorial, please submit a proper S.A.C.,("Suggest A Correction), which you will find by clicking the edit tab, then choosing one of the edit options and that will link me directly to the memorial and any others involved. Please also provide any proof you have available as well. I try to be as accurate as possible. I am only human and sometimes make mistakes. If you find a mistake, please let me know. I will gladly correct it as soon as possible. If you want the state, county of birth, county of death etc. added to a memorial, I will be glad to add that information if you send it to me.

Having said that, this is copied from a fellow graver: "Get out and photograph memorials while they are still readable. This site is primarily for GRAVE photos not genealogy, preserve those memories that are quickly fading."

**My schedule is tight right now with the holidays, plus I have been extremely ill recently. I am also doing full-time volunteer work at a local hospital. If you send me an S.A.C. and I don't respond quickly, it's because my time is not my own at the moment. I have your requests in a file and will work on them as soon as possible. Thanks for your patience.

RE: Sylvia Laverne DeLoach Carringer
Hi cousin. Thanks for the kind words and all the work you've done on Find a Grave. I can't seem to see what your name is from your different postings. Not sure if we've met but I'd like to sometime. I read your comments on my mothers page also. Thanks for remembering her. Have a Merry Christmas.

Silas O'Quinn Family Cemetery
Hello, I saw on here that you were related to Silas and Nancy O'Quinn and managed Nancy's memorial page I am related to them as well and was planning to make a day trip up to Georgia one day with my family and visit some of my relative's gravesites. I know that the cemetery is somewhere in Wayne County but I cannot find out the exact location I was hoping that you could possibly tell me what road it is on or some details on how to find it. Thanks

Davis Family Genealogy Aid Request

I volunteer as a genetic genealogist, and use DNA results to locate and connect unknown genetic family for those who are searching. I am currently working on a case that involves the family of Lawrence Edward Davis. (23235258)

I noticed you left a message on this memorial and may be in personal contact with the family, including his wife Kathleen.

If you would be so kind, I would love to connect with you and get into detail in regard to my case, and I would welcome any help I could get from a seasoned genealogist that is familiar with this family.

Thank you for your time,
