Bio and Links
Bio Photo THIS IS A HOBBY not my LIFE!!!
I Have been researching Family lines for over 35 years.
In the SAME light.. this is NOT a Genealogy Research project this is about the Cemeteries!!!
while I like to get more info and do link ups and maybe a SHORT BIO page on the Person that lists an Obit and maybe little more, It is UNNECESSARY to put clips from census and other large documents and 'family histories' into the Bio. this really is NOT the place for your Genealogy Family Research to be STORED.(that is what the GENEALOGY WEB SITES ARE FOR! NOT HERE!!) PLEASE USE ANCESTRY OR FAMILY TREES for your data.. this is where the obits and short histories and locations of burial sites should be done.. family links are NICE and helpful to the genealogist... but I have found that they are NOT always right! having the obit to prove helps... (I myself have had supposed family members give me DIFFERENT links for the parents of one memorial.)
[FAG: "the goal is not to "own" every memorial of those to whom you are related. The ultimate goal should be to have MEANINGFUL, accurate memorials that honor those who have passed away, regardless of who created the memorial or who maintains it."]

Regarding Transfers: PLEASE READ FINDAGRAVE's TRANSFER REQUIREMENTS before requesting a transfer.
IF YOU ARE DIRECTLY RELATED (read FAG DEFINITION! does NOT mean Every cousin, Aunt or Uncle! or DISTANT family member!) to someone that I have entered and wish to request to have them transferred to you.. please USE THE EDIT tab on any memorial to make request. PLEASE!~ USE THE EDIT FEATURE TO REQUEST EACH ONE ~
PLEASE!~ USE THE EDIT TAB FEATURE TO REQUEST changes ~ I do not respond to "notes" left on this page for requests NOR do I respond to direct emails.
PLEASE NOTE.. CHILDREN ARE HOOKED UP BY LINKING THE PARENTS on CHILDREN's memorial. GIVING ME A LIST OF THE CHILDREN to "link" to the parents WILL Get you NOTHING. (I may not "own" their memorials in the first place)

Regarding Duplicates: (actually FAG policy is NO DUPLICATES) It is not my intention to create a duplicate on purpose. If you come across a duplicate I have made, please use the EDIT tab and let me know. I'll be happy to look into removing it. Please don't create a duplicate of my memorials; I would rather you ask for edits. Duplicates are the ones with the LATER date or number.

Regarding Messages: (PREFERRED) Please contact me USING THE EDIT feature in any memorial. I don't always respond to "private" messages.

A BIG thank you to those who send SHORT personal Bio, death notices, obits and links to add to the memorials. They are wonderful additions that I love to Add.

as of late I've been getting RUDE DEMANDS to remove my listings.. PLEASE REFER TO FAG RULES!!! if you can't be polite I won't listen to you!

infant adams in Old Lapile Cemetery
I am wondering about the death date of Dec 11th 1891, Minnie and James weren't married until 1894 and the date on the headstone really looks like 1897. Am I seeing it wrong?
I am sorry if I am wrong I will take the headstone off.

Fantastic! I look forward to seeing them. What is the name of your Grandmother? Did you make memorials for the Wells that were her step cousins?

RE: Troy Cemetery - Obion County, Tennessee
Would you share some of the names and photos? Are the people in the photos identified? This may help me identify some people that are in the old pictures I am looking at.I am just beginning research on this line and I know many of them were in Obion County. Thanks, Kathy

Hi Carol,

I noticed you created several memorials for the Wells Family in Troy Cemetery. My grandfather was James Reed Wells and I am just beginning to research his family. I was curious if you are related to this family and how you are connected?

Thanks, Kathy
