Bio and Links
Bio Photo My home is circa 1784. Its situation is such that it fell in the line of battle during the conflict between the States. When my father died, I was too early at the cemetery for the appointment concerning the necessary arrangements. To pass the time I paid a visit to the antique shop close by. Displayed there was a book which possessed a title that gave me the idea that my home may be mentioned within. Upon opening it, the pages fell directly to a description and photograph of my old place. It was not intended for the purpose, but the volume became a much worn field guide as I sought to visit and photograph other ante-bellum homes in the vicinity. I pursued that objective with interest and vigor. This caused me to notice the old churches en route and I began to photograph them. Behind the churches were cemeteries. Cemeteries that I found to be serene and sublime, full of lore. In turn they led me here and I stayed.

Hi, George. I was at Hollywood today visiting g-grandad's grave, and snapped a few other pix, just in case they weren't entered here. I noticed that you and someone else have this Jones entered, with different dates. It looks to me like 2005. Do you have any idea what the little statue is about? It's fascinating. I can't tell what he is holding.

RE: Cornelia Peake Mcdonald
When you say Colonel are you speaking of her father? My concern is Cornelia and her reentry to Find A Grave was made:

Created by: George Seitz
Record added: Feb 22, 2015
Find A Grave Memorial# 142948584
Who is the Colonel you speak of?

HER father: the Dr. Humphrey Peake who was just transfered to me by dMf.

Maintained by: JoAnne Peake Lotspeich
Originally Created by: dMf
Record added: Feb 11, 2015
Find A Grave Memorial# 142466013

These entry dates of Feb 2015 is not many years ago.
Pease don't take all this as an insult to you, that is not my intent and I am certainly not into Quantity of memorials, but this family is now so messed up due to whoever deleted all their memorials recently. The Peake family has been a work of love for over 30 years for me and yes I am concerned, sorry I do not mean to offend you in any manner.

I'll make a trade.....I will give you all the McKee's I manage total of 10, for ONE Cornelia Peake McDonald.

your memorial #142948584 and the other of #18809342 by Project Manager who took over the original but without any pictures.
I am so confused on how all this happened. I had originally posted the pictures of Cornelia on the very first entry by whomever it was. I have worked on this Peake line for almost 30 years and never dreamed anyone would simply delete everything they had.

Would you consider a transfer of Cornelia to me if possible. My ID # is #46980645. She will be well cared for and I am in frequent contact with her ggggrandaughter also a Cornelia McDonald.

Thank you
JoAnne
