My maiden name is Hainsworth.
My parents names were Harold Dean & Mildred Pauline (McCort) Hainsworth.
My husband is John Brian Norris, his parents were Harold Richard "Dick" & Peggy "Jolene" (Hundley) Norris.
We live in South Central Kansas & enjoy researching family history. We had been taking a photographic history of Tombstones for both sides of our family and were pleased when we found the Find A Grave database. Looking forward to research & inputting information on the website.
Below is a poem I found on another volunteer's profile.

Today we walked where others walked on a lonely, windswept hill; today we talked where others cried for loved ones whose lives are stilled.
Today our hearts were touched by graves of tiny babies; snatched from the arms of loving kin, in the heartbreak of the ages.
Today we saw where the grandparents lay in the last sleep of their time; Lying under the trees and clouds - Their beds kissed by the sun and wind.
Today we wondered about an unmarked spot; Who lies beneath this hallowed ground? Was it a babe, child, young or old? No indication could be found.
Today we saw where Mom and Dad lay. We had been here once before on a day we'd all like to forget, but will remember forever more.
Today we recorded for kith and kin the graves of ancestors past; to be preserved for generations hence, a record we hope will last.
Cherish it, my friend; preserve it, my friend, for stones sometimes crumble to dust and generations of folks yet to come will be grateful for your trust.
