Bio and Links
Bio Photo
I am a Wife, Mother, Grandmother and Great-Grandmother. We collect, glassware, vintage jewelry, Cowboy Collectables, and dust. We love Flea Markets, Country Auctions, and long highway yard sales.

I started Find a Grave as a Photo Volunteer and decided that was too hard. I started photographing the entire cemetery, this way I could add them to the Computer at the Research Center and put them on Find a Grave also.

I walk the Cemeteries and take the photographs of the memorials I put on Find a Grave. I do not set at the computer and put memorials on in another state that I have no intention of putting a photograph on with it. I do not do this for the numbers, I do it to help others.

I will have to add to the above and say this winter I have been going through our county Cemetery Books and Creating new Cemeteries and making memorials for the ones buried in Family Cemeteries. It has been interesting to find them on Census records and connect them. I will try and locate the cemeteries and make a picture if I can. Sometimes the older family Cemeteries do not exist anymore. I did not want to add memorials that I could not add a picture. I decided that these people did not deserve to be forgotten, thus said here's hoping I can find a picture to add to the memorials. Keeping our County as up to date as possible.

I believe family should be with family. I make mistakes, I am human, just be nice when you let me know. It is not my intention to make duplicates, but names, initials, nicknames are not all known, and I gave up mind reading a few years ago. I try to correct, link or transfer as fast as I can. I do not believe it takes two months to type a few numbers.

If I add a photograph it is from the Funeral Home until I can add the gravestone marker. If I add the obituary it is from the Funeral Home or from the Daviess County Public Library, Owensboro Area Obituary Index database.

I look at the old monuments that have weathered many storms and mowers and wish they could tell of what lies beneath them. I feel that by photographing them now could be the last means of preserving them for our generation. Find a Grave is a wonderful site for sharing the photographs of family and discovering death and birth dates that might have been lost.

It is wonderful to meet and make friends with people I would otherwise never know. I love being able to help others in any way I can.

I believe in God, Family and Country. If this offends you, I am sorry. This is a short bio of me.

God Bless you and
God Bless the United States of America

Roach Farm Cemetery
Hello Anita,
I saw that you have taken pictures at the Roach Farm cemetery in Aetnaville in Ohio County. I have been trying to find the cemetery so that I can visit the graves of my ancestors, but I cannot find where it is located. Can you tell me how to find the cemetery?
Thank you so much for your help!

RE: Lockett #113247159
Hi Anita, Thank you for your very thoughtful email about my Lockett family. It looks like you have several cousins of mine and I have done a lot of research on them. I like to do as much on their memorials as I can and when a closer relative comes along I am happy to transfer them. They are not forgotten. Some, sadly, have no family remaining. I will send you edits on each of them as I can requesting transfers. Again, thank you very much. Very sincerely, Mike Lockett

RE: McCarty
Hi Anita,
I got your note re: M McCarty Bio and want to thank you for your support. I have another question for you. My connection to the McCarty's is through Michael's wife Elizabeth Bowlds who was a sister of my gr-great grandfather John N Bowlds. What do you do when you have a relative whose gravesite is unknown?

Also I saw your note about sending me two photos, but I never got them. Try sending me an e-mail without an attachment so outlook will recognize you when you send the attachments.

Thanks again for all your help
