Bio and Links
Bio Photo Retired from an exciting career in law-enforcement, and now living at the beach. The husband to a wonderful woman who is also my very best friend and the love of my life. Father to 2 great sons, and 2 new Grandsons whom I am so very proud. This has become a wonderful & exciting hobby for me, I think the biggest surprise for me was finding out that Elvis Presley & I have the same maternal Great-Great Grandfather. Visiting grave sites for a requested photograph is not a chore for me, but a chance to pay my respects to those whom I photograph their headstones. Always an honor and privilege, never a bother. I am also an avid collector of confederate currency since I found out that I have relatives that fought on the side of the Confederacy. Such a sense-less war, Brother against Brother. Nothing we can do about the past except learn from those mistakes. My heartfelt thanks & appreciation to each of you that have left tokens on my memorials, may God bless you & your families.

Mr. Rose,
FYI...If you have trouble finding the correct William Swain that you just claimed, I just saw one in the Old Smithville Cemetery.

Thank you.
I would like to say "thank you" for sharing the Capt. Charles Norton Swan memorial.

I personally am not related to him, but, believe it or not, my little sister is.

She was lucky enough to find her biological father about ten years ago, and she lost him recently.

This story made such a difference for her. You could see her pride as she was reading it.

For that, I will be forever grateful to you.

You are so welcome. But I'm surprised that you didn't already have the connection.

Fannie was a sister of my paternal grandmother, Hattie Deloris Askew Johnson and is buried with her parents and her husband Frank, who remarried, was buried with Fannie.

RE: Friends
You have such a positive BIO! It's great to have you on my friends list. Thank you for your service to the public in law enforcement. My dad served in WW II (Army) & a brother in the Air Force during the Vietnam war years. I've developed a habit of doing a memorial on soldiers because of them. It's the least I can do to honor them.

Thanking you from my heart, for leaving a token and note, and remembering my Wendy. Since, 1976, August 31 always made me happy. Once my child was murdered, this day causes my heart to hurt. I thought people had forgotten my child and it caused a different ache in my heart. Your kindness touched me deeply and has helped turn this week a little brighter. Thank you! I hope you have many blessings sent your way!!

Thank You
Hi Charlie,
Thank you for your message. I started in September 2009 trying to honor as many Confederate Veterans as I could find, so far I've placed just over 11,000 messages. Take care and if you ever get down this way let me know.
