I became interested in geneaology when my husband had a DNA test done on his biological side of his Dad's family, Thompson. He was adopted as a Winters.
I believe all grave sites deserve pictures and accurate information about those that rest in peace and I appreciate Findagrave giving us an avenue to do so.
I am a Trustee for Mt Harmony Cemetery, Sebastian County AR near Greenwood. This cemetery celebrates "decoration" every year. 2018 marks our 134th year. Decoration is always 2nd Saturday of May (usually the day before Mother's Day)
I am a UDC member, Varina Jefferson Davis Chapter #252, Fort Smith, AR.,
My family names are Stallings,McKinney,Crow, Fields, Beam, & Randolph, Wilson. My husband's side is Thompson, Springs (Wilson Co, TN & Saline/Williamson Co, IL) along with Burnett, Eckols, Stilley, Swan, Smiley, Motsinger (all ILL) then Johnson & Peterson in Minnesota & Michigan.
I will be glad to answer any questions of anybody and 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 am not running a race to have the most memorials managed or maintained. This isn't a competition. I merely request understanding, patience and friendship when participating on Findagrave. Don't be greedy, rude and hateful to those of us wanting to simply research our loved ones that Rest in Peace.
God Bless America and our pioneer families who gave us that Freedom.
