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.

Hi Tangent. My name is James Tatum and I was hoping someone might be able to tell me something about Wilbur Glenn Marchman. You have the only info on him and I was wondering if you could help me. Thanks.

Thank you!
I greatly appreciated all the work you have done and the maintenance you performed today for my family. These are my Mom's Uncles, Aunts, Grandparents, and Great-Grandparents. She knew many of them well and will be pleased. We also know that Nellie, with her playful sense of humor, would have made the best of the misspelling of her name on her marker.

I am working on Lafayette Cem 1 in NOLA and saw your note about trying to read your photos. I have posted new photos to your memorial that are easy to read if you would like to check them out. I also took the side panel if you would like to remove one of yours I could also post that or I can just post to the name on the side panel and you can see them there whatever is easier just shoot me a note if you need something.
Have a great day.

Pansy Hart
I received an email in late January asking me to attach my aunt Pansy Hart to her husband. The number supplied was 62415268. That number belongs to her brother and my uncle Louie.
