Bio and Links

I am researching my family surnames on my Mother's side Traffenstead/Traffanstedt/Garrett (AL/GA/TN) Hartsfield/Cross (AR) and my Father's side (Galloway/Carter/Cook/Oliver (SC/AL/GA). I've been interested in geneaology since August 2006 when I started looking for my Mother's biological family whom I found within 2 weeks. From my Mother's side, I am Cawtaba Indian, German, and British. I'm still working on my Father's side.

Please take a moment and visit my family. Thank you so much.

My Daddy
My Mama
My Brother

This dear sweet woman has been part of our family since I was a little girl. She will never be forgotten. Love you Ms. Frances.

If I have offended anyone, please let me know and I will remove the memorial of your loved one. If you aren't a part of Find A Grave, you can still contact me through the edit tab of the memorial. I don't mean to offend anyone. All memorials are created out of respect. The purpose of me adding names is because I believe that people should never be forgotten, and also I like to help people who are searching for their ancestors.

I will be happy to transfer memorials that are a part of your family with the exception of the ones of my family within Find A Grave's 4 generations guidelines. You MUST state the relationship with your ID number. All RUDE requests will be ignored!

Duplicates - These are errors, and not created on purpose. I search before I create a memorial and after every time. Long time users will tell you that FaG searches can be flaky at times. Please bring any errors or duplicates to my attention so I can correct them. If I have created a memorial and you create a duplicate, do not send me a message that the one I created is a dupe and for me to delete. I will not delete any memorials if you created a dupe. Don't create a dupe memorial just because you're related. If you are family, kindly ask for a transfer or you can add photos and send me information to be added and I'll be glad to add it. If you are within the 4 generations, please ask for a transfer. Please read the FAQ's for this site on creating memorials.

***Please do not take any of my photos 📷 without permission. If you would like a grave marker photo that I've taken, just ask. The reason for this is I spend many hours in cemeteries to take these photos. I've seen my pics show up on other sites without giving proper credit. I keep a record of people who have asked and been given permission. The only EXCEPTION is if I post a photo of someone and their spouse doesn't have one, feel free to take the photo and upload it. Just give me credit. I'm a chronic pain sufferer but I do this anyway because it's something I love to do and contribute to this website. Thank you for understanding. :)***

Charles Cousins edit
Hi Dana,
He was a Sgt in WW II and died in this century. I already list his rank and when he served in the inscription, and also is shown in the photo. So I haven't accepted your edit.

You must be up and around now if you're moving. Any more operations coming up?

About corrections
Dana, since I take alot of your request, I would like to email you in person about some of the ones I have looked for and can not fine.
I also have some questions about corrections and how it is suppose to work.

I am so sorry that I have not worked on this for months now. I have had to stop and care for 3 loved ones, two of which died. It has been an awful spring and summer.

Thank you for sharing your brother's story. I'm sorry his story couldn't be happier, but he is no longer fighting his battles.

God bless

RE: Mann Family Photos
Thank you for permission to use your photos. I do appreciate the work you did to obtain them and am glad to credit you for your excellent work. I do not know if there are any Mann family members in the Hillview Memorial Park. Right now I have kind of switched my attention to some other aspects of my research and I am not sure when I will return to this area of my tree. If I do revisit this line of research, I will let you know. Good luck with your endeavors and thanks again. - Allison

Mix Up with Geraldine Eustice
My pologies - I got Doris Tarpley mixed up with Geraldine Eustice - too many graves to research in Maplewood.
Doris Tarpley is buried in Maplewood according to the Cemetery Rep - when I went the locations the Rep pointed to - there was no stone for Doris Tarpley - she is supposed to be buried beside "Winnie" Harding - there is a stone for one Winnie Hardy - but no stone next to it.
Sorry about the mix - up. Hope this info is helpful.

Doris Tarpley-Maplewood
I was at Maplewood yesterday and met with the Cemetery Representative in the office.
Their records show that Doris was buried beside her daughter Pamela Beets - the grave is unmarked. The photo of Pamela Beets stone does not show a marker on either site. Note - the bio states that she was cremated - that would be the reason - thought you would want to know this info before removing your request.
