Bio and Links
Bio Photo Find A Grave is a wonderful resource, and I am so happy to have "found" this website. I have been doing family history research on and off since 1970. It is time consuming, as well as a labor of love, and extremely rewarding. Now that I have retired, I am able to spend more time on my favorite hobby.

I am researching these names (ancestors and descendants):
In TN and NC: Sharp/Sharpe, Cooper, Welch, Hatmaker, Duke, Hafford, Tinsley, Tucker, Farbridge, Burton, Mosier, Jarnagan/Jarnagon/possibly Jernigan.

In VA and GA: Watson, Halburt, Burdyne.

In Glamorgan, Wales, UK: Greenberry or Green Berry Hill.

In Kent, UK: John Stevens.

In UK: Thomas Fay/Faye; Margaret Maiter/Maher/Maier, Ellen Lynch, David Lynch, Bolling.

In NY: William Henry Stevens & Maggie/Mary/Mae Fay(e).

In Arkansas: Garrett, Wilson, Calhoun, Farbridge, Hamilton, Hafford.

In VA, GA & FL: Hill, Callahan, Cain, Bradford, Power, Sims, Caraway/Carraway/Cariway, Grisham/Gresham/Grissom.

In VA and OH: Moon.

In GA, AL, FL, TX and OK: Zellner.

I manage the memorial sites for several family members and ancestors, as well as some very dear family friends.

A special place in my heart is held for the FAG memorial # 26414618, that of my beloved daughter, Lauren Elizabeth Hafford .
If you visit her memorial, please leave a remembrance so I will know you have visited.

Here is a wonderful quote by a man I had the pleasure of hearing in person when I was a university student many moons ago: "I know for certain that we never lose the people we love, even to death. They continue to participate in every act, thought and decision we make. Their love leaves an indelible imprint in our memories. We find comfort in knowing that our lives have been enriched by having shared their love." Leo F. Buscaglia

I love my FAG friends, and have met some wonderful people associated with this website. I enjoy getting emails from fellow FAG members and visitors. You may want to leave a token at a memorial created in tribute to Fallen Gravers. These people have passed on, but were a part of our group when they were living.

One of my favorite things to do is leave flowers for infants, children or young adults who have been taken from us too soon. It makes me feel sad when I see a memorial that has been created and no one has left a flower for that person. I feel everyone should have a flower at their memorial site to show that someone remembers them.

If you see a memorial for one of your family members that I have created, please let me know how you are related to that person. I will happily transfer them to you, unless they are also a relative of mine. I feel the memorials should be with loved ones (family) whenever possible. Please use the Edit tab on the memorial for that relative to request a transfer.
I take great care with the memorials I create, and I like to include as much information as I have available. If you have a picture, information to add, or a correction, please let me know via the Edit tab. (Thanks.) I feel the memorials are not only a lasting tribute to the person, but they are a very valuale resource for fellow genealogists and family historians.

I sent you an edit on this memorial in early February but no action was taken.

You made 2 memorials on the same day for this man. The original is 87498340 and the duplicae is 87498418.

Could you please delete the latter one per Find A Grave guidelines. Thank you.

RE: Amon Cooper
I was just thinking about you the other day & was going to send you an email :) things are good & I hope they are great for you also! I have not been able to get back to the cemetery because Clara & Joe moved to Oklahoma. They said we could go up any time, but I don't know if the house has sold so I have been a little apprehensive about popping up if there are new owners haha! I did get in touch with another Cooper & she has sent me a few things. If you'd like to email me your address I would gladly mail copies :)

Talk to you soon

ty :)
ty for leaving my sister a message on her Find a Grave page. It's March, my favorite time of the year (sarcasm). It's been 26 years, & I'm starting to release some of that grief I had stuck deep down all these years. I was 14 when she died, not a good age to lose a 10 yr old sister. 14...13...the teens themselves are important years...coming of age. Her death interrupted all that. I had other things to deal with too. My disability, & dealing with living with it, mix that in with the death of a sister & it'd get ya messed up. I didn't drink, no drugs, didn't go insane...just walked a long & lonely road for a long long time. My parents made a DVD out of their ooooold 8mm film...some of it had Jennifer in it, from age 2-6, I look at them a lot. No sound, but still it's nice to have video of Jennifer smiling & being Jennifer. It helps. Hope you all are doing fine.

I sent you an edit re this memorial previously. Perhaps you overlooked it. You inadverently made 2 memorials for this man on the same day, #87498418 and 87498340. Could you delete the latest one per Find A Grave guidelines. Thank you so much.

RE: Ethelle Jones
I'm sorry I couldn't provide a death date and connection for the baby's father but do know that the marriage was 21 Jun 1938, Nassau Co., Florida. You're welcome to what I have but it certainly does not compare to your contributions.

RE: Memorial# 85649952
She is listed as "Lottie P" on every record I've found.
An tree (primarily of the Dickinsons) lists her middle name as Parnell. Of course, there is no source for this information. The marriage record I found: lists her as Lottie P.
