Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'd first of all like to thank all of my fellow FindAGrave friends for your submittals on upgrading my memorials; the addition of dates, family member links, biographies and the like continue to make FindAGrave a "Go-To" site for finding family information. For all your efforts I am indeed grateful.

I've recently started adding Geotags/GPS coordinates using a GARMIN Montana 680t; I won't guarantee the absolute accuracy but the coordinates should get you in the vicinity and very close to the referenced memorial. I do double check each entry on my computer to ensure the entered coordinates are indeed in the correct cemetery and not "half way around the world".

I've been into this genealogy thing for quite a number of years, but seriously only recently upon retirement and the internet. With my grandfather and father both being photographers, photographing cemeteries so others may fill in their family history is only a natural for me. Originally from Bakersfield/Maricopa California, I now reside in Huntsville, AL, and am doing mostly Madison and Lincoln County Cemeteries along with others in the surrounding area. If you find errors or if you'd like to add or change information let me know - I'm accommodating.

The main families I'm researching include Allen, Banta, Blodget, Crites, Jewett, Meriwether, Macmurdo, McCracken, Overton, Renfro, & Trimble on my side of the family, and Blaylock, Dean, Hill, Howard, King, McElyea, and Posey on my wife's side.

One of my other hobbies is collecting automobile pictures - that's a 1949 Buick Roadmaster Convertible.

Duplicate Memorial Correction Request
suggest the original memorial (created 24 MAR 2012) #87300436 be merged with duplicate memorial #89150414 (created 26 APR 2012). Both memorials have the same information, but the duplicate memorial has photos. Thank you. nepper #47074816

If you are not kin to Aunt Jean, I would love to have her memorial transferred to me, if you would be so kind.

Thank you in advance, and thank you for posting her memorial.

Transfer of management
Hello I'm replying to you because of the memorial you have posted for Roland Joseph Martin he is my great-uncle and I would like you to transfer the management of that Memorial over to me if at all possible. I'm not sure if your family or what the situation is or if you just may be added him at random but please get back to me at your earliest convenience if you could thank you so much for your time.

RE: Elizabeth Archard
Hey Sidney,

"Liz" was entered as her maiden name and I submitted a change to appear as her nickname, and then went back and submitted her maiden name to be Albright. It looks correct.

I sent you an edit for Hank Murray's parents. His mother Christine Murray was my aunt. I noticed you photographed the headstones before her death in 2012. I created a memorial for her, but I didn't have an obituary. Were you able to find any newspaper articles on her, J. C. or Hank's deaths? I have been trying to link all my dad's family together. I know they are not direct relations, but I would be glad to take over their memorials.
