I have had a fascination with cemeteries since I was very young and I wondered who these people were and what kind of life did they live, who were their ancestors and their stories. Find a Grave is a wonderful tool for helping those spirits to live on and I am happy when I can contribute to that.
On my mothers side, my ancestors go back 5 generations on the Georgia coast from St Mary's to Darien and before then from Ireland and Scotland. On my dad's side, my first ancestors arrived from Ireland and Scotland to Virginia then thru the Carolinas into southwest Georgia. I am excited to not only find my own ancestor burials but to help others looking for theirs as well.
I am a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution and United Daughters of the Confederacy.
Originally from Georgia, and a proud graduate of The University of Georgia, Go Dawgs!, …I have lived in Alaska now for over 30 years. I am a city commission member for Clay Street Cemetery, Vice President of The Fairbanks Genealogical Society and a member of the Pioneers of Alaska.
Please feel free to use any photos I add on a memorial to any ancestry sites, that is why I take them! I want to help other family members with their ancestry research.
If you wish a memorial be transferred to you just ask using the suggest other edits, I will be happy to do so unless I am related to them.
