Bio and Links
Bio Photo First of all let me start by thanking the findagrave members who are the boots on the ground who are logging data and creating memorials, your work is invaluable to us all and no words can express my appreciation. I've seen some of my ancestors added to this site I thought I would never ever see.
I am a retired business man living near San Antonio, TX. As my tree grows larger so do the names of families I never knew I was related too.
My primary family names are Echols,Brett,Butsch, and Keith.
Love to hear from you and am willing to help in anyway I can, this is a huge group effort! Findagrave is an incredible resource and will only continue to be so in comiing years.

photo of Eugene Matthew Ford
Dear Mr. Echols,
I am a freelance writer working on a book about baseball in Northwest Iowa. The photo you posted of Eugene Ford is the first one I've found of him. Is it possible for me to obtain permission to use it in my book? A major league ballplayer in the 1930's, he was born and died in Northwest Iowa.
Thank you for posting this wonderful photo.
Sincerely, Joan M Thomas

Mary Jones
Any chance you have a Mary Jones, b. 1826 KY, married James Magee in 1844 Scott Co. KY, on your tree?

Are you going to add you picture from 1968? I would love for people to see the change and need for restoration and perpetual care. Please label the pix 1968. Thanks!

William David Gaston
Thanks for adding the great photograph of William David "Dave" Gaston. As a long-time figure in southern baseball, spending time as a player (second baseman) and manager in the South Atlantic and Cotton States Leagues as well as the Southern Association in the early part of the 1900's; it is great to see Dave in his baseball uniform. ~ with appreciation, George Gaston

Paul Companion
You posted a photo on his memorial in St Mary's Cemetery in Claremont, NH. This is actually Napoleon Paul Companion married to Mary Poulin and born on 10/20/1874 in Canada. Therefore, you have him confused with another Paul Companion.
