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.

I have spent months deleting obituaries and pictures from my memorials. If you find one please let me know about it so I can delete the obit or picture. FAG does not want Obits or pictures due to the Copyright law. I do not want my account closed from breaking their rules. You can read that for yourself in the Q and A on your contributors page.


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

RE: Clarence Davis # 56759796
Your welcome. When I found him I didn't know if he was the Clarence you were looking for but I thought I would point him out to you since the death date was the one you mentioned. Glad it worked out.

Glenville Methodist
Regarding your message to Jim Nelson in 2014:

Glenville Methodist on FG has a photograph of a KY historic marker. It is marker 830 on KY 250, 2.2 mi. W. of US 431 which is in McLean county. This is not near Glenville

RE: Clarence Davis # 56759796
I wish I had the answer. In doing family research I came across your memorial for Alma Blackford, noting she had a son Clarence, who died Nov. 10, 1944. I did a quick search and found that memorial for Clarence A. Davis, died Nov. 10, 1944. Is it your Clarence, don't know. Do you know if Clarence died in the Pacific? I agree about entering the service in Iowa, however it is not uncommon to see that. Good luck in your search.

You might want to check Birdie Lillian Rone-Millers site at 114179520. You have her headstone ok, but you also have Frank-John-Jennie Rone's headstone attached to her site.

Thank you so much for all your work. God Bless you.

Nellie Gailbreth Lovell
I believe this is probably the same person. I checked KY deaths and she is listed as Mellie Lovel. The listing in the cemetery book is Nellie.
When you were at the cemetery did you find her mother Hannah Gilbreth? She is not listed in the cemetery book when they "walked" the cemetery but is mentioned in notes Mrs. S.E. Metzker kept of those in the community that died and buried at Friendship Cemetery, her daughter continued keeping these records for many years. These records are names and date of death and most unmarked graves.

Hello Anita, I wondered if you wouldn't mind adding the tombstone marker photo you added to the above memorial for Marvin Glen Rowe, to his wife Ollie Gene Southard Rowe Evans #143894495. Thank you, Gennie.
