Bio

I love traveling and photography, mainly nature and wildlife. New to genealogy, have only been working on mine and my husband's family trees for a few months, but I have found it engrossing. I've frequently relied on Find A Grave since starting my family history journey, both for ancestors/relatives to add to my tree and to find the location of their graves to visit in person.

I'm from Jay, Florida, but am currently living in Jennings, Louisiana. My father's family is from the Dixonville, Alabama/Jay, Florida. The majority of them, including my father, are buried at Dixonville Community Cemetery. My mother is from Pensacola, Florida. My husband's family is from Lake Arthur, Louisiana. I have visited and photographed cemeteries in these areas.

I have taken pictures of a number of graves that I suspect have some relation to myself or my husband with the expectation of finding where they fit in my family tree if they're not already there. I'm sharing these photos here in hopes that they'll help somebody else. I also find it interesting to see how the condition of the headstones have changed over the years so I will add my own photos even if there is a clear, legible, but older picture already available, so that a researcher will have a better idea of what the headstone looks like now and will be able to find it more easily.

I hope to be able to begin fulfilling photo requests in the cemeteries I visit, if I am able to find the grave. I won't even attempt to find graves in larger cemeteries if there's no information available about approximate location. The pictures I post are taken in RAW and edited in Lightroom to ensure legibility.

Surnames of interest to me (not comprehensive):
Boyer, Calhoun, Dixon, Duhon, Dupuis, Eddins, Fulmore, Proctor, Teal, and White.

If you would like me to transfer a memorial to you, please message me and include your relation to the person. The memorials I have created have come from photographs I have taken but have been unable to find a current memorial for. My memorials are based solely on the name and spelling on the headstone, unless personally known to me. If there is another memorial, please let me know and I will gladly delete mine.
