What I Am Currently Working On

29 Apr 2016 - I am finished uploading photos to the Crab Orchard Cemetery in Daviess County, Missouri.

I will be taking a trip to this cemetery during the first week of May--weather permitting. I will be setting a concrete base and a new granite stone for Moses Stephens, Jr.

As of 29 Apr 2016, I have spent about 1.5 hours at this cemetery.

There are 13 FindaGrave memorials with no photo. (A couple of these non-photo memorials are duplicate memorials. I do not upload photos to duplicates.)

7 Apr 2016 - Temporarily on hold while I go off on another tangent.

I am still processing my October 2015 photos for the Linwood (Beebeetown) Cemetery in Harrison County, Iowa.

I had taken (and uploaded) some Linwood photos in 2012, and over the last 6 months I have been slowly replacing those 2012 pictures with better photos that I took in October 2015. I meant to dedicate my full time and efforts to finishing these photos, but once again I got side-tracked with other cemeteries. I will continue working on Linwood, but will be doing other cemeteries at the same time. I will get Linwood done, it will just take a little longer than I had originally planned.

As of 28 Mar 2016, I have spent about 2+ hours at this cemetery.

FindaGravers should follow this simple rule: 'Quality not Quantity'

RE: Memorials to Manage?
The only Thompson ancestor of my family that you manage would be La Vern Thompson. He was the nephew of my Grandmother. If you would like to transfer his memorial to me, that would be appreciated. Thank you.....Dixie

RE: Prentice Rader
Prentice Rader is my grandpa! He was a great man and we miss him everyday! I have also noticed that you have left notes/flowers and manage a few Philpots...are you related to them as well?
