Feel free to use any of my gravestone photographs for any legitimate purpose.|
No need to ask my permission or give me credit for them.
My ego does not require it.
Want to manage one of my memorials? Just ask, I would like to transfer all of them (with exception of my own family, of course) - but just have some sort of connection to the deceased.
My grandfather was born in Hants County Nova Scotia so I have a virtual cemetery entitled The Dalrymples of Hants County Nova Scotia. If you have a Dalrymple in your genealogy with roots in Nova Scotia, be sure to check it out as well as the link below

Dear Mr. Daylrymple. For several years I have seen the work you have put into posting memorials for family who likely cannot visit the graves of their loved ones in person. So much of my family lived in the Tri-County area of Mississippi and you have entered photos and information on so many of them. A few years ago I strongly considered moving to MS because I wanted to live on the ground my ancestors walked on. I studied MS so intently, at times I caught myself believing I had been there. I remember seeing a Dalrymple house for sale, I believe it was out of Aberdeen and looking at it for a possible purchase. I did, at that time, have a realtor in Caledonia who worked with me. I believe I have become to old now to uproot and move anymore, but my heart goes to that area of MS with longing. My birth name is Sims. I am a gg granddaughter of William Sims whose old home is on 9th St. N. in Columbus. He helped lay out the original streets there. Ovid P. Brown married William's sister Lucinda and their home is now the visitors center. There are so many stories I would love to share with you, but I have questions too. My great grandmother was Mary Ann McClendon and I thought I found her grave out by Enid Lake. The tombstone says wife of Benjamin F. Sims. That was my great grandfather's name. A Pipkin relative in that area says that is the black cemetery. If it is can you tell me where in the world my great grandmother could be? Benjamin was a Capt. in the Civil War and his muster out papers are dated 1867 and say "died of disease contracted while in service. He was absent on and off during his service which must have been due to the illness. Another question, there is a Benjamin F. Sims buried in Aberdeen, but it says he died in 1820. I don't know if that could possibly have been one of my family. We are related to Littleton, Mayfield,Holloway,Mitchell, Isbell, Cocke, Brown, Foy, Bell, McBee, Pipkin, Benson, Barksdale, Walker, Phillips, and more. If you would like to give me all the Sims, I would be glad to take them and the others. I already have most of their families on paper too, so feel free to transfer whatever you like to me. I will take care of their memorials and love them because they are my family that I miss daily and look forward to meeting after this life is done. God bless you. Patty Sims
