Bio and Links
Bio Photo Thought for the day: If you're waiting for your chance to win the lottery, take a look at some of these headstones where the person lived a few decades, a few years, a few months or even just a few hours and then you'll realize you're already the big winner.

I've been doing general genealogy for a little over a year now (as of August '09). I get pictures of headstones here and there hoping it will help somebody somewhere and I consider it an honor to post cemetery information of the men and women that served this great land called the United States of America.

I've taken cemetery pictures in 36 states, DC, Canada and the Bahamas. My favorite place for pics is definitely (southern) Louisiana.

Some of the surnames in my tree include Thompson, Liles, Southards, Chester, Stacks, Causey, Shipp and McDaniel.

The (famous) ancestor that I am most proud of is King Robert (the Bruce) I of Scotland.

UPDATE: April/2012 (I almost made it three years without putting some sort of gripe in my bio) - If you're going to ask for a transfer, please don't use some cheap excuse like, "I would like to link them to my family" or "I would like to make updates". Any knucklehead can do those things. Just ask for the transfer and I'll probably do it. I generally don't even care about the transfer guidelines. Honesty is more important. Just say (something along the lines of), "They are directly or indirectly related to me and I would like to have them."

Gripe #2 (July 2012) - Please don't post death certificates where you are supposed to put pictures of the person and headstone. Send a SAC with the birth and/or death information and parents if available. About the only thing left is what they died of and do we really need to know that?!?!

Great thanks to all the

A name correction is needed.
Cam Thompson,
My wife is buried in the McKenzie Cemetery near Oletha,Texas .Faye Sanders Texter.
You have a name that you attached to her name of "Fanny" which is not true, she never used that name.
Please put a correction in "Find a Grave" showing the elimination of the name,"Fanny".
Thankyou. Don Texter Nov.22,2015

Union Cemetery, Monroe County Arkansas
Hi Cam... I have found a family who I believe should all be buried in this cemetery but there are only 13 memorials posted. Not that I can remember every single cemetery I have worked on, but I am wondering if you remember back to 2010 and this particular cemetery well enough to say if you listed all the known graves, or just a few selected ones. Thanks for any insights.

Thanks for the info about the duplicate memorial, however her death cert states burial in San Fernando #2. Before I remove my memorial I will have to do more research. Thanks Beverly

Photo Error
I just wanted to let you know you posted a photo of a headstone on the memorial for a Maria C. Scanio Find A Grave # 31457800 and if you look it is the incorrect Maria because of the date of death; your photo matches the dates of Maria F. Scanio Find A Grave # 31457923.

Just wanted to bring that easily made error to your attention so you could delete the one photo and add it to the other memorial. Your photo has three people listed on the headstone.

Thanks so much for posting pictures from St. Joseph's #1 in New Orleans. Francis Varenholt and Theresa Patmuller are recent ancestors, and I've not seen their grave(s) before. You provided some info I did not know. You can read more about them and find out a bit more about relationships on Wikitree if you would like; thanks again for your volunteer efforts to digitize this information.

I've never done anything on Find-A-Grave before, but I attempted to link a few of the family members in your entry to other family members (Meyers-Varenholt) entered by someone else for the same cemetery. If it didn't work, happy to help link them all together.

RE: Beatrice Moore
(Cam, the following is taken from an article by the late historian Eric Brock. If attribution is given please credit 'Eric Brock'.)

Beatrice Hawthorne Moore of Shreveport was the first woman in Louisiana history to serve in the state legislature. She was born in Dunkirk, Ind. in 1898 but moved with her parents to Shreveport, La. at a young age. She graduated from St. Vincent's Academy and from State Normal College (Northwestern State University) at Natchitoches, La. In 1920 she married Waldo Wightman Moore, city editor of the Shreveport Journal newspaper. Mrs. Moore taught math in the public schools in Caddo Parish and it was during this time that she headed what was then the largest PTA in the state of Louisiana. In 1940 she was elected to the Louisiana state legislature. Among her progressive ideas eventually enacted into law: the 12-year school system instead of 11; the abolition of fraternities and sororities on public high school campuses and insurance for varsity athletics. She died in 1990 at the age of 91, a champion of women's rights and public education to the last.
