Bio and Links
Bio Photo I developed taphophilia in Nov 2007. I'm adding what I can, photos and accurate transcriptions, because stones deteriorate and there's no better time than now.

On a philosophical note: I believe that an unmarried woman's surname should never be listed in the "maiden name" field, and a divorced woman who returned to her maiden name should also have that name as her surname

RE: Howdy :)
Ok, whew! Thanks. I couldn't think of anything I'd said that warranted such action (not in the past couple of days anyway...HA!).

I wonder if they're implementing, or trying to implement, the "new and improved" forums. Oh well. As mom & dad used to say, "We'll get there when we get there, now sit down and shut up!" lol

Look at all the time we'll have to work on our main site projects now. :)

RE: F a g forums
That's a relief! I was thinking what on earth did I do? lol It must be affecting the regular site too? I can't seem to load any photos tonight and I had gotten 5 requests I wanted to fulfill. :p Thanks for answering! :-)

F a g forums
Hey Chris, I see someone else has asked you this. I went to the forums tonight and find my account being suspended. I haven't done a thing and rarely even post there so I'm not sure what the deal is. Is it doing this to all, or just some? You're the only one I know who goes there. lol Not sure what to do?

Howdy :)
Are you allowed/able to find out why my forum account is suspended? At least, that's the message I get when I try to log in. :)

(What have I done now?) lol

Hope all is well,

Transfer of a Memorial
Hi Chis, My name is William H. Fuller would you please transfer my relative Gladys M. Pettis #50869559 memorial in Baltimore National Cemetary to me for management. Her Husband Otis Pettis is a cousin of mines. I would like to add her memorial to the rest of the Pettis family memorials I'm maintaining. Again, Thank you for all your work. William H. Fuller

Thanks for your observation, it deserves more attention, unfortunately time is not on my side, that's why I put the photo up. "Others have laboured and we have entered into their labours."

I am not sure what went wrong but I have uploaded another copy of the supporting documents for John Hann (Haltn).

Hi - At your suggestion I checked and found her with children. Your suggested name sounded like it was right, but found her under the other name. I added that information to her bio. It makes the memorial a lot nicer. Thanks for the suggestion. It made me look further.
