~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ SOME PEOPLE HAVE ACCUSED ME OF BEING A "NUMBERS" PERSON, JUST ADDING MEMORIALS TO MAKE MYSELF LOOK GOOD. THIS DOESN'T BOTHER ME AT ALL! THERE HAVE BEEN TIMES WHEN I VISITED A CEMETERY FOR A PHOTO OF A PARTICULAR PERSON'S MARKER, AND ENDED UP PHOTOGRAPHING THE ENTIRE CEMETERY. IN ONE CEMETERY, I ADDED 2500+ NAMES AND PHOTOS. IN ADDITION, I TRY TO LINK AS MANY FAMILIES AS POSSIBLE. TOO MANY PEOPLE JUMP ON THIS SITE, ADD A FEW MEMORIALS; NEVER TO BE HEARD FROM AGAIN!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ DO NOT ADD OBIT PICTURES TO ANY OF MY MEMORIALS...THEY WILL BE DELETED! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Azel Johns I was wondering if you knew about the Azel Johns b about 1788. He is in the 1850 census. There are also similar given names, which lead me to believe that there must be some connection. His wife was Mary Dearman.

RE: Francis Zeigler photo You are most welcome for the photo. I agree. It's very sad when I come across an unfinished marker. We have discussed the situation at our cemetery board district meetings. I hope we can come up with a solution that doesn't interfere with any of the protocols that we have to follow.
About a year ago I ran across the headstone of my grandpa's cousin. You know how you see something every once in a while and then all the sudden you notice a detail? This man died in 1952 and his wife 10 years before. They had no children. Anyway, I was taking some headstone photos in the vicinity of their grave and I walked over just to say hi to these people since I was in the neighborhood. I brush them leaves off the stone and realize that the man didn't have his death year inscribe it just said 19 and the rest was blank. I asked one of our local headstone people if he would put in the dumper five to next time he was in the cemetery with his mobile stone cutting equipment. I would like to see the district to be able to do that inscribing in-house and it wouldn't cost as much money. I'll keep working on it and bring it up at every board meeting
