2020 - 2021 Pandemic-COVID-19 Coronavirus
I have been doing Genealogy for over 8 years now with great passion. My sister, Sherrell, was my inspiration. She has been doing it since 1964.
I believe all grave sites deserve pictures and accurate information about those that rest in peace and I appreciate Findagrave for giving us an avenue to do so. I will be glad to answer any questions of anybody and I am willing to share at all times. I do not mind if you use my photos, after all, we do this to inform relatives of their ancestors. The reward is accuracy.
I have encountered some strenuous situations with rude and unkind contributors on Findagrave and I don't get it. Aren't we all working here for a common goal? To honor our Ancestors?
I am a Trustee for Mt Harmony Cemetery, Sebastian County AR near Greenwood. This cemetery celebrates "decoration" every year. 2021 marks our 137th year. Decoration is always the 2nd Saturday of May (usually the day before Mother's Day)
