Bio and Links
Bio Photo "When you remember me, it means that you have carried something of who I am with you, that I have left some mark of who I am in who you are. It means that even after I die, you can still see my face and hear my voice and speak to me in your heart." Fredrick Beekner


First of all, I would like to thank the many volunteers that give freely of their time, knowledge, and efforts on behalf of people searching for answers and hoping to breathe life back into their ancestors, walking cemeteries, taking photos, editing photos uploading and creating memorials.

Find a Grave is kept up by a United community of genealogists, historians, (beginners and experts) all of which of course, are VOLUNTEERS. We do not get paid for what we do here.

Creating memorials and fulfilling photo requests is a labor of love for me. If you appreciate something I've added, please pay it forward! If you receive "freely", give "freely"

I firmly believe that our ancestors deserve more than just dates and a cold hard stone on their memorials. It is because of that I try to add as much information as is available to me.

Please click the "Edit" tab on the individual memorial, then the "Suggest A Correction" link on the specific memorial you would like me to update or transfer. PLEASE DO NOT SEND CORRECTIONS AS PUBLIC MESSAGES

If I SUGGEST A CORRECTION to you, please copy and paste the info into the bio and add dates and places in the appropriate fields so they can help others locate the memorial. Maiden names and links to parents are also helpful. If you want to see my sources please just ask. You can also check the memorial, as over the last three years I have been trying to give credit to those that submit valid info in the bio of the memorial.

I spend a lot of time traveling, photographing, editing and posting my photos because I love doing it. It also gives me a lot of satisfaction if I can help others find their family. I do not mind if you use the photos for PERSONAL use.

I do not transfer to requesters who are rude/demanding, have no profile or who are collectors -- however,I'll always update and link memorials within a day or two or as time allows.
Transfer requests should be requested on the "edit" tab. Include your relationship, and your contributor name and number.

Keep in mind, those of us who list these memorials are only human, sometimes we make mistakes, let us know,and Never forget: We Are Volunteers. VOLUNTEERS. Our time and work are given freely.

The quote of Fredrick Beekner is borrowed from my cousin Mike Perkins memorial.

I am of the belief that no one is truly gone, until they are forgotten.

So with all this said, I will continue to visit cemeteries and take photos of graves, and hope someday to find more of my family,and maybe some of yours. Until then I will remain.... Calmly Searching..........

Cherie Gruber
Hi, you have a picture posted of Cherie's husband, Roman, from Meadowlawn Memorial Gardens. There are two photo requests for her and her husband. Cherie recently passed, so the picture does not have her date of death on the plaque. Do you by chance have the area/plot in the Garden of Memories Mausoleum? I'll gladly go take an updated picture, as having the plot makes it easier, and this cemetery is not very willing to assist in locating plots. Or, if you would prefer to take the pictures, that's fine too. Thanks in advance for your help. Betsi

Transfere please ...
Hi! I would like to start by saying thank you for all that you do.

I can't figure out how to do a transfer or what it entails. But I would like to have Find A Grave Memorial# 123357321 transfered. Don Hammond, he is my uncle.

Thank you for your time,

RE: Delmer J Bender
Dear Searching,
Thank you very much for the transfer that I most certainly did not expect. As you probably already realize my goal is not to gain control of numerous memorials. Instead, I'm working to honor our Ancestral Pioneers by bringing Families together!

Many thanks to you and a suggestion
Dear Searching;
Thank you so much for doing what you do. I have worked on our family tree for many years off and on, and have visited Rico Colorado myself and photographed a few family headstones. I also see some here that you photographed that I never did.

My relatives are the Hicks and Koenig family, and I have found quite a bit if information and photos on them.

A suggestion, would be to allow users to submit photos of them so a face goes with the grave marker, if that is not already here and I missed it. I have some great old black and white photos of my family members in several cemetaries and would love to share.

Again, thanks to you and everyone that contributes to this site, I, we, really appreciate it.

John Henry Davis
Hello there !! John Henry Davis would be my Great Grand Uncle. He and my Great Grandma would have been brother and sister.

I have grown up my entire life hearing of the Cherokee ancestry that we have in the family. It has always been told that it was on the Davis side. However I have never been able to find anything....Until today. I stumbled upon John Henry Davis memorial page and notice that within the text it mentions how his mother was 1/2 Cherokee.

May I ask where you got that information or better yet... Was it passed down from HER mother or father?

Thank you so much in advance
