I am a retired/Disabled US Marine. Since my retirement; I find that I have more time to do what I love most. Researching my family and assisting others in their research. I orginially got started in the family tree research in Junior High and have never let go. I love discovering the past and were my family comes from. I truly enjoy history which makes my research and photo taking a pleasure for me. I try and keep in touch with the local cemetery directors about when new stones are placed. My wife hates vacation trips with me - I make it a point to copy the list of graves needed for the area we are going to and swing in and get them. My wife is a decended of Elvis Presley and Gen John Bell Hood of the CSA. Which helps to get my kids interested in the family tree.
For those of you wishing to use my pictures on your personal or even online family trees. You are more than welcome to any picture I have taken. It was a honor for me to give your family a chance to see headstones that they may never have a chance otherwise.
I use generic URNS for my cremated memorials in order to place a memorial on this graves.
My current research revolves around the following families and their ancestors:
Dad's Side Rush's from Texas - Alabama Simmons' - Texas (van zandt) / Oklahoma Duke's - Texas
