|Bio and Links|
I have been interested in family history and genealogy for about 20 years. For several years I have used Find a Grave as a research tool to help fill in information on my family trees. It seemed a natural progression to become a photo volunteer and I truly enjoy filling those photo requests. |
I try to fulfill any corrections or additions to memorials as soon as possible within Find a Grave regulations.

Thank you so much for fulfilling my request for a gravestone photo for Dr. John Aldis.
|Dorothy Cox-Woodruff||RE: Bertress Cox|
I know there are two memorials for my great uncle Bertress E. Cox. I have written to the one that made the memorial #79100839 for Bert E. Cox to let them know that it was a duplicate memorial. I also wrote to the one that posted the tombstone photo to see if they would added it to the Bertress E. Cox memorial #9923577. I have also asked for a change to his name to include his nickname Bert.
I am the one that made memorial #9923577 back in 2004, the other one was made in 2011.
|Kenneth Watts||Duvall & Olive Watts Gravesites, Evergreen Cemetery, Fort Scott, KS|
Julie, My brother Leonard Watts, my cousins, Jimmy and Billy Watts and I (Kenny Watts) are all great grandsons of Duvall M Watts and his wife Olive who were residents of Fort Scott, KS from approximately 1905 until their deaths in 1934 and 1921 respectively. Duvall and Olive are both buried in Evergreen Cemetery in Fort Scott. On 4 & 5 December 2014, the four of us and our spouses visited Fort Scott to see where our great grandparents lived, where our grandfather was raised and married our grandmother, and where our fathers were born. Via Ancestry.com and Find A Grave (and your photo) we knew Duvall and Olive Watts were buried in Evergreen Cemetery but we had no idea exactly where the graves were located. The cemetery office was not staffed so we had little hope of finding the graves among the 10’s of thousands of graves there. While dining at Crooner’s Restaurant the evening of 4 December, we were explaining to our host, Jared, why we were visiting Fort Scott and our disappointment that we were unable to locate Duval and Olive Watts’s graves. I told him we had a picture of the headstones and he immediately said his mother had taken and posted the pictures on the Find A Grave website (What a small world). He called you and, based on your information, relayed the exact section and row of the graves to us. The next morning we returned to Evergreen Cemetery and walked directly to the grave site.
We had a wonderful stay in Fort Scott, including the Candlelight Walk at the Fort Scott National Part on the evening of 5 December. And thanks to you and Jared, we were able to locate our great grandparent’s final resting place. Thank you for taking time and effort to photograph and catalog all the grave sites and I hope your efforts are as helpful to all other families retracing their Fort Scott family roots as they were to us.
Thank you for adding a photo of the Hart headstone (Memorial# 78429530)! Very happy to have it.

Thank you for the photo of Patricia Reno's marker (#117504198). Would it be Ok with you if I post your photo, with credit, to my Ancestry.com family tree?
