Bio and Links
Bio Photo I think this "Find-a-Grave" website is wonderful, and I hope more people will add data to it. Hopefully my input will help someone out there.

I so enjoy finding & visiting the old pioneer cemeteries, where the dates go back to the 1700-1800's.

I'll be more than happy to make corrections and/or add data, make relationship links, etc, but I am curtailing (not stopping) transferring memorials due to a growing misunderstanding of what Find-a-grave is all about.

Please DO NOT not leave me a message of "any kind" without leaving a way for me to get back to you. It makes no sense to do so - it is useless and it will be ignored.

Your "e-mail" must be present in your messages to me.

DO NOT ask for transfers without return contact information either.

I only transfer memorials according to Find-a-grave guidelines so check first before asking please.

TRANSFERS: Per Findagrave regulations:

Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. This DOES NOT include aunts, uncles and cousins.

Please do NOT add personal data in the "Leave Flowers & Note" section -- that is NOT what it is for...... send the data to me & I will be happy to add it in the "Bio Section" where it belongs. Thanks!

Another contributor has ask my help in managing some of the memorials he created, therefore if I can be of any help to you with of the memorials he has transferred me let me know. I will be glad to make updates/corrections or links to them.

God Bless!

Check out my memorial below for my beloved kitty "Punky" that crossed over the "Rainbow Bridge" on July 20, 2014. It was such a heartbreak..... I miss her so much.
