My mother and I have always liked to visit cemeteries. People may think it is morbid, but we like looking at old graves and imagining their resident's lives. My fiancee works at a Genealogy library and told me about this site and that they use photo volunteers. I just had to come.
Update: Now I am having so much fun finding and linking family members. It's like giving them a place.
Our family goal is to find who my great-great grandfather was staying with when he was shot and buried in a field. William Andrew "Taylor" Wilson. It was 1913 outside of Grady, Ok. In Jefferson Parish. We have been searching for about 20 years. If anyone has old family stories involving a shooting and burial in a field in this area, please let me know. The story goes he was shot by the sheriff over the sheriff's wife. Never reported in news at the time that we can find and no death certificate. We would really like to know his final resting place.
