Daughter of Cecil Wray Rogers and Evelyn Alice Kurtz Rogers.I was born in Pinckneyville IL in 1964,My Father now retired Captain with The United States Marine Corps was stationed in Okinawa, Japan upon my arrival only received a telegram "It's a Girl" for a few days he believed he had a daughter named Ginger. Much to his surprise my mother changed my name. I have lived at the Marine Corps Base, Camp LeJune, NC, back to Pinckneyville (a small southern town in IL) and then moved to Orlando, FL in 1971. When I married my husband Ray we moved to Apopka, FL and in 1989 I was blessed with the birth of my son Raymond (III). I truly enjoy family history.There are books and articles for my dad's side which have been extremely helpful, and I have been researching my mothers side for many years now and came across this site in 2010. It has been very helpful to me and if I can help anyone else out I will. I create the memorials to show respect to those who have gone before us and as a way to help maintain "Family History". I feel that memorials should be maintained by family, they will be able to honor them better than I, and I wish others would do the same in return. Even though I try my best to create the memorial as accurate as I can, I to make mistakes. Please send corrections and I will do my best to correct them as soon as possible.
At work I do a lot of archiving old photos. Some of my customers bring me hundreds of family photos dating back in the 1800's. I find it so fascinating. I tell them about this site so they may find some of their family members information and leave a note or just some "virtual"flowers.

**************** F.Y.I************ F.Y.I.********* today October 17, 2012 I received a email from an angry "Lady" who threatened me for creating a memorial for her family member. If I create one and you would like me to remove it, threats are not needed. I feel I am very respectful of the departed and I KNOW many have appreciated the time we volunteers take to create and post memorials. I appreciate the information I have found about my families on Find A Grave, and I THANK EACH and everyone who volunteers! ~Sharon
RE: Arthur F Plemons thanks for your transcribing. I have changed the date to 2009. The Mausoleum had terrible lighting and it was a job even taking those up high. Maybe I will go back and take some more since I only was able to get a few sections..
Hazel Crawford Hi, I wanted to let you know I went to the Florida national cemetery and I am unable to Locate Hazel Crawford's grave. I also checked the computer system at the cemetery and there is another Hazel Crawford, but the birth and death years were wrong. If you have any other information that may help in locating her please let me know and I will try again.
RE: Thomas Gibbs Sr/Jr I would be thrilled to have your help!! I will call them as soon as I can get free and let you know. We have been dealing with family illness so it might take me a little while to contact you. I appreciate the offer so much as I doubt I would ever get to the area. It took me some time to even find where Sr. was buried. He is my mother's first cousin. His son is there, but I am not sure if his spouse is buried there or not. I had to order death certificates from Florida to get info. I do have an address for the son's widow in another state and hope to contact her when I have time.
