Bio and Links
Bio Photo ** I will be away from Find a Grave for an unknown period of time. I will tend to all requests and edits as soon as I am able. **

My name is Vickie. I grew up in Swannanoa, N.C. and now I live in Asheville. I enjoy researching family history and walking through cemeteries to read stones. Everyone deserves to be remembered. Someone somewhere loved them. Thanks to the great contributors here at Find a Grave, I have been able to see the graves of many family members that I would have never seen if it wasn't for their generosity. It is so nice to be able to visit a loved one's grave and not even leave the house.

If any of my memorials contain errors, or if you have information to add, please send me a message or an edit. All memorials are done with the utmost respect of those who have passed on and those of us left behind.

When my soul is restless
And things seem out of line,
I visit an old graveyard
To take a mystical step back in time.

I find the oldest tombstones
Then read the messages there;
I consider what their days had been
And how our lives in ways compare.

We all have lived though heartaches
As well as episodes of fun;
Surviving loss of loved ones,
And rewarded for a job well done.

Sometimes if I'm very still
I can hear what they have to say
And feel them reaching out to me
Grateful for my momentary stay.

RE: Frances E Seamon Taylor
Just as I thought, never did get a response back from you know who, so guess the error will remain as is. At least you did the correct memorial on Frances and thank you for that.

RE: Frances E Seamon Taylor
Thank you Vickie for your quick response.
I hear what you're saying. I just happened upon the mistake last night as I'm working on my ancestry family tree. After emailing you I went back into the Davidson memorial and clicked on edit and sent a message. Maybe I will get an answer. I am a Seamon and Frances E. Seamon is my 2nd cousin 1x removed. There's no need to transfer, if you don't mind. Thank you for your help.

Frances E Seamon Taylor
Memorial 145080856. This is the correct memorial for Frances. However, there is another memorial created, memorial 53056697 by cehb in 2010. This is not correct place of burial. This creator is not taking messages so I'm not able to contact her about this issue. I'm wondering if you are allowed to delete this memorial 53056697. Thank you for any help you can do on this issue.

Thank you for the edits for Sadie Steele. I really appreciate the work you have done. I've been out of commission for a while and am just now getting active again with Find a Grave. May have to wait until the weather gets cooler until I get back to more time in the local cemeteries.

Also, I appreciate that you sent me your sources for the information.

Best regards,

Sudie's Memorial
Thank you so very, very much for Sudie's memorial, and for taking such good care of it, and all of your memorials. They are precious, and you are a wonderful caretaker of them.
