Please note: My husband passed away recently(July 22, 2014), so it may take me a little longer than usual to get to requests. My apologizes.|
I started doing genealogy many, many years ago. I became involved because both of my grandmothers were adopted. Most of my research is in the Northeast (Boston, New York and Philly).
I have been doing genealogical research for about 30 yrs. Names that I am researching are Bohman, Braun, Baur, Blind, Chevillat, Chieux, Crevoiserat, Duff, Fleury, Fox, Kauffman, Koelbel, Lachat,Luther, Lutz, Macker, Marx, Mewes, Saner, Sanner,Schaefer, Steiner, Sutter, Tschan, Walch, Warre, Weinhart, Horrigan, Kreger, Salzman, Wilensky and Schultz.
I am presently a member of APG, NGS, NEHGS, NYG&B, FSGS, FGS Tampa and the President of the Florida Genealogical Society, Tampa.
I have submitted cemetery records for Garden of Memories* in Tampa. These are from published books that FGS-Tampa, compiled in 1985. I have submitted vol. 3. I have taken over additional entries from these volumes, due to the death of Noreta Wells(#84883785).
I have now finished submitting Lake Lindsay Cemetery which is in Hernando County, Florida. I have also photographed all headstones in the Fort Taylor and McGeachy Cemeteries in Hernando County.
Additionally, I have submitted Spring Hill Cemetery in Hernando County. My sister, Julie, and I walked stone to stone copying the info and photographing the stones. This cemetery is being destroyed by local teenagers who use it as a hangout. We are now also working on what is left of the old confederate cemetery, in the same area.
Please contact me if you have any additional info, photos or corrections for any entry I have made and I will be happy to add them to the memorial. If you request a transfer please tell me how you are related -please use edit button on memorial and make sure you give your contributor number! Thank you.
I am willing to photograph headstones in Hernando,Citrus,Pasco, Sumter, Hillsborough and Pinellas counties. My dear husband, David, is willing to chauffeur me to these areas and help me find and photograph the gravesites.
NOTE: DS means double stone, TS means triple stone.
*NOTE: I will do photos at Garden of Memories, but PLEASE contact cemetery: (813) 626-3161 and request grave location. They will only give location to FAMILY member. UPDATE:(Oct 2012) It has been brought to my attention that Garden of Memories/Myrtle Hill are now telling family members that their families are not buried in the cemeteries in order not to give grave locations.

|Richard Belz||Evan P Landrum, Sr|
I found the memorial you posted for Evan P Landrum, Sr, Find A Grave # 65728002 and am somewhat confused, since he is shown as the spouse of Arlene Elizabeth Ladrum, Find A Grave # 94857869.
Evan Sr was the second husband of one of our “shirt tail” relatives, and her children by her first husband are our “kinfolk.” Based on dates of birth and death it seems more logical that Arlene was married to Evan Jr. instead. Evan Sr had several children of his own, including Evan Jr. I have been unable to find a Find A Grave memorial for Evan Jr and his siblings, but they are all in the 1920 US census under Landrum (as is Cora Lee Townsend, our “kin”).
Since Evan Sr isn’t our “kin” I am not asking to have his memorial transferred to me, but I thought you might want to remove the spouse link.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
Find A Grave # 47107290
