Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm happy to make transfers. I need you to make your request using the “EDIT” tab on the memorial you wish transferred. That step saves time for me, as it gives me all the info I need in one place.

After spending a few years researching my family tree, I found very little information available on burials. When I found this site, I decided to volunteer, thinking it may help someone else researching their families.

I live in Baker, LA now, born and raised in Baton Rouge, and spent 3 years in Central Michigan in the late 1960's.

RE: Eddie C. Davidson # 53614885
Maybe I stated it wrong. Andrew Jackson Davidson and Addie Davidson are the parents of Orin Davidson. Andrew Jackson Davidson is the sibling of Eddie Davidson not Orin.

RE: Port Hickey Cemetery
Yes, it is. And many thanks go to Georgia-Pacific for preserving it. They could have destroyed it during their original construction but instead cleaned it up and fenced it so that others could enjoy it.

Port Hickey Cemetery
Rita:
I added two more names to this cemetery that were there in the middle 1990's when I transcribed the cemetery. Several grave markers in the cemetery were stolen in the late 1990's or early 2000's. The theft was reported to the sheriff's office but they were never found.

If you want the plot data you can get it from my memorial before I delete it. Ken

RE: Beatrice Stevens/McKnight???
Thank you for your response -- and the thought that went into it! How did you come to add a photo of Beatrice to her Find A Grave memorial, if you're not part of the family? And I think I have figured out that Beatrice's parents were divorced -- Kermit Stevens went to Panama during the '60's and actually died there, and was buried there. I know Beatrice was born after Kermit Stevens and Elsie McKnight were married, so her maiden name is unquestionably Stevens. And Betty Carol was a McKnight -- her cousin -- and her married name was Addison, not McKnight. I think Beatrice must have lived in her Uncle Martin Jessie McKnight's hh for a time and came to regard his daughter, Betty Carol, as her (one & only) sister. Judy

Beatrice Stevens/McKnight???
Are you a member of Beatrice Stevens Walker's family? I'm trying to figure out where Martin Jessie McKnight fits. Martin's obit does not name Beatrice or Betty Carol.

Betty Carol Addison names Martin McKnight as her father and Beatrice Walker as her sister -- yet Beatrice's obit names Betty Carol as her sister BUT Mary Elsie McKnight as her mother and Kermit Stevens as her father!

Can you help? Thanks, Judy

Please transfer F.A. "Granny" Blanchard Cole (22588716) to me. She was my aunt, and I'm trying to maintain all of the family.
Thank you!
