Bio and Links
My kids think going to cemeteries is what everyone does on vacation. I am a native Pennsylvanian, but have lived in Georgia for over 25 years, minus three years overseas.

Many of the memorials I have created are NOT my family members, but after photographing, researching, and posting, they do begin to feel like family. I have no ancestors locally. Therefore, I have had to depend upon the kindness of volunteers living elsewhere to create memorials or take photos for me. In return, I try to take as many photos as I can locally to post to non-family memorials, hoping to "pay it forward." If I have taken a photograph you would like to use for your personal, private, off-line use, let me know, and I'd be happy to send you one of a larger resolution. Please do NOT post my pictures on the Internet.

I will *consider* out of guideline transfers of your relatives (who are not also mine) if you are an established, regular contributor to Find a Grave who demonstrates an understanding of the FAQs and purpose of the site. (Don't mean for that to sound judgmental. I am just hoping to avoid potential problems.) Please use the SAC function (edit button) to request transfers, and be sure to let me know specifically how you are related. If you are brand new here, welcome! Folks come and go often, and I like to make sure you're going to stick around and contribute regularly before I transfer. You may want to read the "help with Find a Grave" section to understand the purpose of the site. In addition, folks merely interested in genealogy might well be happier having someone more active to manage the memorials,and use other more-suited sites to build trees. That "virtual cemetery" feature is also useful in sorting out the branches of your tree. In the meantime, please feel free to send me as much additional info as you wish via the edit button on the memorial.

D Wyatt
It would appear you are correct, not to mention attentive to detail. I have moved the photo to the correct CSA soldier, D Wyatt.
Thanks for bringing this to my attention.

Fred Mattox
Peter Mattox #59093215
Your Find a Grave states that Peter is the son of Henry and Sarah. I am trying to ascertain if this Peter is a brother of my Thomas Mattox b abt 1780 in PA. Do you have proof of Peter's parents? And if you do would you share our info on Peter and his parents.
I have been working on this family for quite some time.
A Henry Mattocks (Mattox) is my 4th Great-Grandfather.
Any help would be very much appreciated.

Rush Tarwater Lewis

I saw your listing. Rush was my Great Grand Father and I have been having difficulty finding any info. I have discovered his Mother was Mary Halbert, but have had a hard time finding any evidence that his father was in fact Edward Hunter and who Edward Hunter was. Do you have any sources you could share?

Much thanks!

KENDALL family memorials
Thank you for re-sorting the KENDALL family FindAGrave memorials so that the "map" I added is last. It does look best with the map last.

Suggestion for Link Requests

Just a thought, when sending family link requests, it helps if they are in the order of:

Father: 100001
Mother: 100002

as that's the way the link windows have them listed, and it makes it easier to keep them in the right sequence when cutting/pasting them in.

hope this helps
