Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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.

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. :)***

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.

Stella Johnson
I purposely did not post the picture from Raymond's memorial to Stella's because I'm waiting for them to add the death date to the headstone. I've known this family my whole life, my father worked w/Stella's husband and I'm still in contact w/their oldest daughter.

Mann Family Photos
I am researching the Mann Family and see that you have added several photos of gravestones for this family. I see that you wish to be asked for permission to use them, so I am respectfully asking if it is ok for me to use them on provided that I credit you as the photo source. Thank you for your help and please let me know. - Allison

Would be nice if you practiced what you preach- "***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."

You've taken my photo for Raymond Johnson (100921720) and added it to his wife, Stella Johnson (100857178), granted you've given me credit in the comments- I don't recall you asking to do it, which is what you request people do for your photos...
