I started working on my family tree in 2003 and was immediately addicted to genealogy and the importance of preserving tombstone pictures and information for future generations. Some of the individuals and pictures that I have posted are of no connection to me, only a memorial for future generations to treasure. If you find I have made an error or would like to add more information, please email me and put findagrave in the subject line. Families I'm researching CARSON, PARKER, JONES, GRIFFIN, HOWE, FOLEY, O'BOYLE, WILSON AND THEIR DESCENDANTS.
