Bio and Links
Bio Photo We completed a survey of all known cemeteries in McMinn County plus transcribed McMinn County death certificates from 1914-1955.
Surnames we are reseaching: Marvin's lineage = Templin, Click, Bryant, Sisk, Smith, Waddell, Gross. Samme's lineage = Carpenter, Simpson, Hutsell, Julian, Warren
Whenever we go out to fill a request, we try to take photos of a few of the surrounding burials. Never know when you might help someone find a lost relative. We also take tombstone pictures of any veterans we see, as we try to honor ALL VETERANS regardless of when they served.
A big "THANK YOU" to all the Find-A-Grave volunteers who have taken tombstone pictures for us.
We are working with International Wargraves Photography Project (#46770518) adding veteran memorials to national cemeteries.
Our latest project is helping FAG member Tom Brocher (#47674416) upload tombstone pictures for Golden Gate National Cemetery. Always glad to honor our veterans.
When asking for a memorial transfer, PLEASE use "Edit" then "Suggest A Correction" instead of posting message here. Thanks

Thank You
Dear Marvin & Samme:

Thank you for taking the time to visit the Spring Grove Cemetery and taking a photo of my Grand Uncle's grave Floyd I. Keys. I have downloaded the picture for my tree. It felt like time stood still when I viewed the photo. There is something indescribable about seeing a relative from your tree "come alive" for just a moment, if even in death.

Once again, many thanks.My husband and I are trying to pay the kindness forward by helping others on Find A Grave also.

I am hoping someone will answer my other two requests at the same cemetery (Spring Grove) for a photo of my Grand Aunt Norma Keys and Grand Uncle Glenn Wylie Keys...fingers crossed. :)
