Bio and Links
Bio Photo When I was a little girl, my parents would drive through the local cemeteries on a Sunday, for something to do. (no tv then). We would look at the markers and the names and try to think about who that person was and what their life was like. If it was a child's grave, we would always feel sad. My little granddaughter likes cemeteries, too, so maybe it is in the genes. :)

Thank you
Dear Eleanor,
This is a belated thank you for taking and posting the photo of Charles Halbrook's grave. He was my great uncle. I'm so glad that his memorial has a photo now. Take care!

Hi Eleanor,
Julia Sims is my 3rd great aunt. My 3rd great grandfather is John Sims, Jr. He married Catherine Hover. John Sims, Sr was a patriot & in the Revolutionary War. I am trying to document everything to be able to join the DAR, .
I have no info on Julia Sims. Who was her husband?
I am interested in any information that you may have on our family! I could use some help!

RE: Cunningham

James Alfred Cunningham was my 3rd great Uncle. His brother Joseph is my 2nd Great Grandfather, Joseph Daughter Margaret Pearl Cunningham is my Great grandmother, her son Carl R Sheets Sr is my grandfather and my father is Carl R Sheets Jr. I just happen to have Cunningham as I married a Cunningham (although is not my husbands biological father's name long story) So Yes we are distant cousins

Thank you for volunteering on Find A Grave, it is a very helpful tool in doing research. I use it a lot.

In my research I noticed that James Ray appears on two different memorial pages and I thought you would want to know.

James Ray # in the Subject: and Capt. James Ray (Find A Grave # 6378639).

The other contributor (Done Tryin) does not have an e-mail address.

RE: Vincent Frazier (Frazier Vincent)
I posted the pictures of Daisy and Edward Vincent on new memorials and transferred the memorial to you on both.

Hope this will help you. If I can do anything else, just let me know.

God Bless
