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
Blessings
Anita

RE: Margaret Baize
Anita,
Thank you again. I would not have the photo without your generosity.

It means a lot to bring my family together after all these years.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Margaret Baize
Thank you very much for your photos. I appreciate the your effort and the time, it means so much to have this valuable information available.

I would like to ask if you have any additional information on Margaret Baize? You just posted a photo of her headstone. If she is Margaret (Maggie) A (Renfrow) Goff Baize, also listed in Sunnyside, then I would like to connect her with other members of her family.

I hesitate to do so if there are indeed two women named Margaret Baize. Please, if you have any more information I would appreciate it.

Thank you
Kim

Thank you for creating the memorial for William Trogden. I've been trying to find out what became of him after his marriage in April 1883 to a distant relative of mine. That being Sarah H. "Sallie" Richeson. These two were married on April 29, 1883, in Ohio County, KY. And NOW I see why I had so much trouble trying to locate him as his date of death here is shown as Nov. 27, 1883, i.e., roughly 7 months after he was married to Sarah.

I'm sure you are a very busy individual but could you please indicate when and who he was married to on his memorial. Thanks again for creating this memorial and for the photo as well. Best wishes - Kelly

This picture is not postmortem. This picture is from a friend of mine. She posted it on her FB page. She even wrote that it was their last picture together.
They are buried together, but this was not them in the casket. This was when they were both still alive.
Merry Christmas,
Angela
