Bio and Links
Bio Photo I enjoy locating "lost" cemeteries and doing complete surveys of them and other local cemeteries. I add as many photos as I possibly can as time permits or whenever I see a photo request. But first I add the person's name and dates so you know where your ancestor is buried. I tend to get involved in the people buried in the cemeteries and try to use my genealogy skills of over 30 years to link those buried to their loved ones. This is done to make it easier for researchers to locate family members.


I am happy to transfer your family and friends to you, as long as they aren't mine too. DO give me a REASON to transfer to you though! I AM A CARETAKER WHO IS ONLY WAITING FOR A FAMILY MEMBER TO CLAIM THEIR LOVED ONE. These graves belong to those who loved them, even if they never met in life.

Find a Grave does not require that I search the entire Find a Grave system globally, only the individual cemeteries in which I am adding to. Please do not move your Burial Unknown or a person from an incorrect cemetery into the correct cemetery based on the information you found from my memorial & then demand that I delete my "duplicate". It is not fair that I spend my time, my gas, my $, hunt down owners of the properties, bee stings, ticks, poison ivy, and even risk to my life (bull in the pasture, scary men, and electrified fence-no snakes so far) to photo gravestones only later to find that an armchair F-A-Ger has placed a name in either an incorrect cemetery or has a burial unknown, finds I have actually found-the-grave, moves theirs to the correct cemetery and then expects me to delete my entry. I WILL TRANSFER my submissions after the incorrect entry is deleted. This way we both get credit and the person who makes the incorrect entry still has a memorial they maintain. I feel this is more than fair. This is in accordance with FAG rules! I refer you to Find A Grave rules: "In regard to duplicates, a memorial with a correct known burial location will always be preferred over an unknown burial location". Thanks for listening to my venting!

Happy hunting!

My Grandfather
Thank you so much for listing my paternal grandparents, Elmer and Martha Lilly (she actually died remarried with surname Moomaw). I moved to Florida in 1984 and have only seen those pictures in person once since, nearly 20 years ago. Now I have them with me always. I truly cannot thank you enough.

Olive Garnet "Ollie" Fleur Brown
Hi. I do not even qualify as a novice at this. I just looked up my Great Grandmother on FindAGrave and found the listing of her grave in West Virginia. I had never heard of the name Fleur before. Do you know where you came across that name? Just curious. I added a photo of her grave that I took when my mother and I visited a few years ago. My mom, Loretta Irene Brown, confirmed that it was the grave of her grandmother, Olive Brown. She remembered having to visit it every Sunday when she was a child. Her mother, Alma Marie Brown, and her aunt, Mable Louise Hurt, visited every week. It is an unusual grave stone in that the year of death is listed first and then the year of birth.

RE: Leslie Tyree
That would be fine for you to transfer him to me. I would love to have a copy of his death certificate. I am still searching. He died before April 8, 1929 at Grundy Presbyterian School, Grundy VA of drowning. Still looking for the obit that we think our grandmother had. This postmark 4/8/1929 was from the wife of the pastor at GPS. Leslie's parents were Susan Tyree and L.C. Lively. Susan's parents were Granville Tyree and Katherine Tyree. They are listed on the 1920 census with Lesley Tyree as age 6.

Yes, I'm related, but your daughter-in-law is closer and I'm not invested in owning memorials. Just trying to make sure they reflect accuracy (as much as I can) and are complete and linked where I have the information.

I have deleted my memorial.

Low Phillips Memorial# 148144865
Hello! On the referenced memorial you questioned if the Earlyn Phillips cemetery was the same as the Phillips cemetery? I don't believe so. I do know that Low's parents (Rufus & Sarah Phillips) are buried at the Phillips cemetery.

Kind regards,
Susan Holland Thompson
