Bio

UPDATE:
My husband died recently on my birthday after caring for him through his illness. Within 30 days three family members died. I surprisingly find myself homeless. I used to help homeless folks and see many with shopping carts struggling. Seems I’ve surprisingly become one of those dear folks.
Can only get to this if / when time allows now.
Thank you for understanding or laughing. Both are appreciated.
Grandma once said,
If you can keep your sense of humor, you can get through anything in life.

NOTE: IF YOU TAKE A PHOTOGRAPH OF A TOMBSTONE, PLEASE ENSURE NO DEBRIS INCLUDING LEAVES ARE ON THERE. THEY COVER IMPORTANT NAMES. ALSO, PLEASE TRY TO TAKE A PHOTO STRAIGHT ON RATHER THAN AT AN ANGLE. AND IF YOU CAN TAKE TWO CLOSE UP AND AT A DISTANCE...WOULD BE WONDERFUL. ONE OF THE BACK AS WELL IS GREAT FOR FAMILY AND ANCESTORS TOO. Ty

There is a terminal illness in my family, so appreciate your patience. Also, a loved one recently passed away, so please forgive me if it has taken a while to respond. Ty Please know, that each of your loved ones will be in my thoughts and prayers. My Sincere Respect & Appreciation for ALL THE DEAR COUSINS & VOLUNTEERS WHO GIVE TOKENS & DO THIS OUT-OF-LOVE!

Life is Very Short! Don't waste it! DANCE IN THE RAIN!
I found Find A Grave through my hard-working okie cuz, Phyllis Long Rhodes

Our Family Goal has been to connect my direct line and children for many years(sadly, Met with some resistance)!! Why, I don't understand?
If I Request my family, and family requests them back, I'm happy to add what I have and transfer Family back to family. That's how my family would expect it! I'm an 'Old Soul'

Does THIS look like I'm guessing? PLEASE, "prove" me wrong! If not for myself & ; my dearest cousins, Much LESS would be known about our Ancestors! We owe Each one a Huge Debt of Gratitude!
If you are adopting out your memorials, I would like to adopt my main family surnames:
Long, Bradford, Harris, Dalton

I have been researching since before 1999. I was raised(in part) as a child by my Grandpa2 Mathern and Grandma Bradford! So, My BRADFORD line means EVERYTHING TO ME!!!
Their Life Story is Quite Amazing!
My Mom then raised me(my dad1 left just before or just after I was born) after my grandparents,
Mina (Lynn) Marie Long & Eugene Joseph Freitas

If you are family, I have some group pages if you are interested in joining. Please let me know if you are interested. I like to try and verify family connection etc before I give any strangers access to my tree! Ty

(I'm NOT trying to start new research! I'm simply trying to connect MY FAMILY! Why is that such a difficult concept to understand?)
****It is page 188-189 and does not list the burial location. Thank You Joan

So why is it so wrong to add whom you know are your own ancestors that no one else in all these years have still not added?
Simply only because no one knows and may never know the burial place due to being so old Cxxxs? You are very rude! Do not contact me ever again even if you are a Bradford cuz.
I wanted to get my family Line added for MY Future Generations since I know them and have been doing research for years and my future generations will not know these links that I know! It is truly shameful to complain to findagrave simply because I am trying to connect my own line! Why don’t you take care of your own lines and leave mine alone!! And this person that lodged complaint STILL has not added who it claims to be his ancestor! How Very sad that this info will be forever lost simply due to jealousy!

If you have information to contribute, I appreciate that over leaving unkind messages. I have Never disrespected You. Please don't disrespect me. I will Never understand someone sending in a complaint Over giving the manager of the Memorial the necessary info that will HELP them.
I thought we were all supposed to be working Together in KINDNESS, after all.
If you see any errors, please send me a correction a I will be happy to correct. Please use the 'edit' for changes or corrections. For those that share with me additional information of my family stories, from my whole heart, THANK YOU!
It means so very much to me. XOXO
For Kind Hearts, Please email me any time!
If I have added incorrect information on YOUR relative, please don't hesitate to let me know.

I am happy to transfer any memorials of your family as long as they are not my Family. Thank You! I have some Very Special family. However, if you were real close to someone, I will definitely consider transferring! I think it's so very important for Family to have care over their OWN family!

Thank You to those Dear-Hearts that leave Tokens.
You are Very Appreciated!
Huge Thank You to those dear-hearts that take the huge expense & time to go and take pictures of our loved ones Headstones. That is very time-consuming, especially these large cemeteries and our aged tired ones. If not for these volunteers, much less history would be saved!
What an honor to meet any of these dear folks!

Thanks for sharing okie cuz:

If you could see your ancestors
All standing in a row,
There might be some of them, perhaps,
You wouldn't want to know.
But, here's another question, which
Requires another view,
If you could meet your ancestors,
Would they be proud of you?
