Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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!

I drove over to take other photos in the cemetery and notice there was 1 with him in it. Sorry for using "your" photo. It's all of our Geneology.

RE: virtual cemeteries
My father was an Otey. Most came from New Kent/Bedford County in Virginia. I will look at those you added. I don't know of any that ended up in Florida, but its not a common name. Thanks for the info!

RE: Helen Rhudy Matthews
I guess that "Southern Hospitality" phrase still counts in some ways. I have never refused a transfer and, since my family is from this area, I have never been denied one. But, some of the bios I read are ridiculous in their refusal to transfer. You would think people that volunteer time to add to the site would be able to keep the drama off of here and give respect to the deceased and the family that would like to maintain that memorial. I guess some people just need numbers.
Thats my venting. Thanks, lol.

RE: Parklawn Memorial photos
You are welcome, Sharon. And, yes, you have my permission to use them on (Note, they were taken at Peninsula Memorial Park - not Parklawn.)

Harold and Rudolph Kellerman
I have transferred Rudolph's memorial to you as you requested and also his brother Harold. Sorry it has taken me so long to get these transfers completed. Sometimes I have more edits and requests than time. Glad to make the transfers.
