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 39 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?!?!

I am praying 4 U.

RE: John George R. Myers
Cam, I may have mistakenly led you astray, if so,
I want to apologize.

I don't know how the "Sr" got on the description
for John G. Myers. It needs to be taken off.

Also, no family member even knew his name was
"John George Myers" so if you don't mind, just
make it read:

"John G. Myers"

P. S. I also have a burial plot in the Heath
Cemetery. Being 85 years old, you just never know.
Footnote: My ex-wife and daughter upset me with
the tombstone that my deceased son, Bobby Kenneth
Myers, Jr. has. They made it read "B. Ken Myers"
which, as a genealogist, I prefer the full and
correct name to be put on the stones. Most families do use the legal names of their folks.
All I could do is refuse to pay my half of it,
but they want ahead and have his grave marked in
this grade school or immature fashion. He is
also buried in the Heath Cemetery. Thanks for
past favors.

John George R. Myers
Cam, I don't know how my gr-grandfather got a nick
name of "Rockwall"....he didn't have a nick name.
Please eliminate this "Rockwall" connotation.

Also, his name is not on the tombstone as "John
G. R." Myers as even his children didn't know
about the "G." part. However, in the Myers family
Bible his name is stated as "John George R. Myers".

Let's just leave his name exactly as stated on the
tombstone, leaving the "R." out as it would just
confuse some of the family. I have worked on the
Myers genealogy for 50 years and know he had no
nick name and, as I say, even his children didn't
know that his complete name had an "R." in it.

From studying the family records, I would hazard a
guess that the "R." was given him by his mother,
Eliza D. Stubblefield, in honor of her father who
was George R. Stubblefield.

Well, enough said, please just eliminate the nick
name, as there was none and take the "R." off.

Anaise Autin mother of Justillian Robichaux
Hi Cam,

I know it currently looks wrong, but Anaise Autin is the maiden name for Justillian Robichaux's mother. I have submitted a correction to the memorial to fix her name and change the birth date to 1830 rather than 1884.

But, thank you for asking. Keeps us honest :-)
