Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm a fairly recent enthusiast of cemetery photography. I suspect becoming a site contributor and photo volunteer was inevitable.

I live in the Cumberland Mountains of Tennessee. My involvement in the Society for Creative Anachronism (the "SCA") means that I travel to other states - notably Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, and Mississippi.

When possible, I now "fit in" cemetery photography sessions while away from home.

Most of the memorials I have made are for people I am not related to. They've come about from picture-taking adventures and subsequently learning that no memorial existed. When appropriate, I add photographs to existing memorials.

A good number of the memorials I manage but did not make are my family. Some were created before I came along and were kindly transferred to me by other contributors who are not related to them. Others originated from the U.S. Veterans Affairs Office and were transferred to me by Find A Grave Administration.

A couple of memorials I now manage are of non-relatives for whom I suggested rather extensive editing based on information I had gathered ... and the non-relative originator chose to transfer management to me.

If you find that one of your relatives has a memorial made by me, I'll be happy to transfer management - WITHIN the 4-generation direct relationship guidelines as given in the Find A Grave FAQ. --->> Please do specify your exact relationship in the SAC! <<---

FAQ #162 states that the 4-generation direct relationships are as follow: "This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren."

Kindly DO NOT copy my photographs for use on other websites. Yes, I ***REALLY*** DO mean: DON'T post photographs that I have taken to or to any other site.

Copyright for images posted to Find A Grave remains with the photographer, who in this case reserves the right to not permit further sharing on the Internet.

I have 3 other photos of Scotts that were next to the grave you requested. Let me know if you want them and how. Thank you.

Oshia Adkins
Leach Cemetery, I found a marker for Oshia B Adkins at Leach Cemetery in Anderson County, Tn but has slightly different birth & death dates. I thought it was a different person but then noticed the one you requested had same birth and death dates as spouse. Very unlikely. I suspect wrong dates. Let me know if you want me to upload the one I have. It could easily be a spouse.

RE: Marjorie Faye Whelchel - unmarked grave photos
Tangent, You are very welcome. Her name is spelled Welchel, so had a little problem looking for the photo I sent, but finally found her memorial. Feel sorry about the deceased that never got a headstone. Leon

RE: Cemeteries in Biloxi
The cemetery across the street is part of the same cemetery and I don't remember any gate. There may be one at the one entrance by the Gulf. The thing I didn't like about it was one road through the cemetery was actually a road with a name and you could get run over by traffic. It seemed to be a favorite cut through. I still have my photos from the smaller section across the road. Take care.

RE: Attributions on memorials
thank you for the info on a rule infraction ! I do not want to do that in any manner ! I will begin removing them now, however I find little difference in the reference line attached to so many memorials. I know there has to be a reference point and now I need to look this up again. Thank you again for all you do will find a grave. bren

RE: Cemeteries in Biloxi
It was Biloxi City Cemetery. I forgot about these photos until the other day I found a USB stick with about 2,000 photos on it. This cemetery has been photographed pretty much completely by other folks and I don't get to post many of mine.
