Bio and Links
Bio Photo      I enter records here on Find A Grave for two reasons: First to help others find the graves of lost family members and second to remember our War Hero's who have "Given Their All" for our country!


If you'd like me to fix any of the records that I maintain ... please click on the "Edit" button on the top right of the record, click on "Suggest a Correction" ... Enter your note and/or correction and I'll fix them as quickly as possible.

When requesting a transfer use the edit tab on the memorial and follow the below from F-A-G.

From F-A-G

"Explain your relationship in the request! Any non-direct relatives (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc) are not required to be transferred. Keep in mind that the original contributor may also be related to the memorial and may not make the transfer. Bulk surname requests should not be made."


Also note from FAG rules:

"No photos of obituary's are allowed, No bio's in flower sections are allowed. The record added to the right cemetery first may stay and the burial unknown will be deleted regardless of the dates.


     I'm currently working on updating and entered Soldiers and Sailors who "Gave Their All" during World War II. To see more on this project please click on my website below...


     I originally started researching my Family Tree when my oldest son, Chris, came home from school one day and said that they had to write up their family tree as a project. This, of course, led me to many cemeteries and I quickly became interested in them also.

I've always enjoyed history and the two fell together.


     Again, If I've created a record that someone needs deleted (since some families do not want their loved ones on the internet) or that you want me to update please let me know and I'll be glad to update it for you.

RE: Donald Lee Gibson
Russ, as much as I would LOVE to have Donald, PLEASE keep him,,,,,he will get noticed MUCH more by all the people who visit you remarkable listings!

People that WANT to remember our BRAVE soldiers are more apt to go to you rather than me, and it IS all about REMEMBERING them!

Thank you so much for offering. Your listings keep all them together for eternity

Minnie Bounds edits
Hi Russ: many thanks for the Minnie Bounds edits. Her family members are distant relatives of mine so it's great to get 'em all linked.

Question.....if I were to create memorials for his gentleman's parents would you mind linking their son to them?? They are burried in the same cemetery directly behind him.

RE: Sgt Adam P Hafer, Jr
Absolutely not a problem. I have always held those who keep the home land safe in high respect and have honored those who lost not only their lives but returned to find that life here at home seemed to move forward without them leaving them to play "catch up." Two of my younger siblings were military. My sister was in the Navy until about 2007/2008 and my brother just retired from the Army in November 2014, so for me honoring any veteran for their service in any way that I can allows me to express my gratitude. Please let me know if there afe any other photos I can be of assistance with.

Missing headstone pics
Back in 2005, you took pics of the Tharp Family Farm Cemetery, Farmington, DE. There are some missing pics. I know its been a long while, however can you advise about James Madison Tharp, 12/25/1808 - 3/12/1849; Ann Jane Tharp Harrington, 1/22/1812 - 3/1/1888 and Jonathan Tharp, 7/24/1843 - 9/8/1855.
I am working on some missing pics requests. I have only been doing this for a short while, however I enjoy searching for the small cemeteries and getting pics of the headstones.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!
