Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have no copyrights on my photo's, please share freely, of course please give me credit for the photo. As with many other members of the Find A Grave website, I started compiling my family tree and soon realized that Find A Grave was a huge part of collecting genealogy information because most of my family members did not have a photo/memorial when I began. Knowing how helpful this website has been for me in locating my ancestors is the reason why I began taking photo's for others who are looking for theirs. Paternal Surnames in my family: TAPP descendants of William Taptico - of the County of Northumberland in the Colony of Virginia and King of the Wiccocomoco Indians - Haplogroup Q. Maternal Surnames: FERRELL, GORDON, CORBITT/CORBETT, & MCCLINTIC.

Most of the memorials I create are for those I never knew personally and all are created with heartfelt respect for the individual and their surviving families, and I would hope that someday, a family member will be looking for those members of their ancestry family that I have photographed. Please feel free to check the memorials I have added to see if anyone you know is listed here and if they are YOUR family member, please ASK me for a transfer.

Please use the "EDIT" tab on the memorial page when requesting either a transfer or for me to correct information. I will not respond to any request for a TRANSFER which is made as a public message on my page since this could lead to inaccuracies. I strive to be as accurate as I can but I do occasionally make mistakes and I will gladly correct them when possible if I am notified of the error.

Estelle Sterling
I took a photo of Estelle Sterling's grave stone for you although there were no dates on the stone. The cemetery office indicated she was buried in 1975 but that was the only date he had. There is no record of her death at the Vital Statistics office in Blue Earth County, Mankato, MN.

re: Reidar Belland
While photographing Reidar I saw that he was buried with his wife and sister. I posted photos to Pauline's memorial page and created a memorial page for Anna Bjelland (notice the difference in spelling). If you have her birth and death dates it will save me a return trip to the cemetery as the dates aren't easily read from the photo but if not, not a problem- I love being in that cemetery. Jim

Charles Rockhold
I have been researching my ancestors for a while now. I have seen this site in the past but never really looked into it. Today I found the page of Charles Rockhold and saw the note you left about him being your 5th Great Grandfather. I had to laugh because he is also my 5th Great Grandfather.

This site seems to be a great site and I am looking forward to contributing.

Hello! Tapp Family
Hi Searching4Genes!

I found you through my connection. I am descended from the Tapp family, but I have very little information at this point. It appears there is quite a lot to know about this family line. Any information you would like to share with me would be greatly appreciated. I think we probably share some genes : ) !

Look forward to hearing from you. Sally (Tapp family cousin)

RE: Samuel Warden Memorial #118971600
I actually found that photo of Samuel in a book about his church from about 1900. There is no copyright on it so feel free to copy it. If you are looking for information about Samuel or his family then I strongly suggest you contact the Braddock Trail Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution. His former home, the one that is on the historic registry, is their home office. The building in absolutely beautiful! Roz Ashmun is their president and you can reach them at 724-423-3275. Good luck!

Mabel McGill
You have requested a photo for Mabel McGill. I have one but marked it in big red letters, Don't Put On Find A Grave. Unfortunately I do not remember why. Most likely a family member did not want it posted.
She is in the Vollintine niche with Helen (dates are 1844 - 1925) and Thomas dates are 1840 - 1911)if that helps. There is no further information at the niche level for Mabel, I suggest you contact the mortuary.
I have to honor the request to keep picture private.

I was more than happy to transfer your family to you. Just wanted you to know that they do not have a headstone. I've walked that entire cemetery to catalog it.

William Turner
I took your photo request for William Turner. There may be a duplicate page for him. There is only 1 William Turner buried in Section 5 and his Find A Grave number is #3064849. Is this the same William Turner you are wanting a picture for?
