|Bio and Links|
Ever since I was a small kid, I've always been interested in my ancestors. I'm sure I drove the older members of my family nuts by always asking who was married to whom and who their kids were.|
As an adult I've traced my lineage back four to seven generations and still enjoy working on filling in the blanks.
I also love to roam around in cemeteries and look for odd and different headstones. I have a scrapbook of photos of these stones that I started years ago and still add to it every chance I get.
My favorite is a stone that I found in a local cemetery in Bentonville, Arkansas... it's a man's headstone and carved by the monument company is this phrase, "I told you I was sick". I literally had to walk up to the stone and touch it to believe it was really there.
I first started using find-a-grave to look up famous people's gravestones, such as Bruce and Brandon Lee, those have to be two of my favorites, they are beautiful.
I finally, just in the last couple of weeks started working on adding information on the cemeteries where I have relatives buried. It's a great way to save and share information.
If you would like to either correct or add to a bio, or contribute any information regarding any memorial I have placed, please feel free to contact me. I welcome all information. Or I'll be more than happy to transfer any memorial page to friends or family. Please put "Find A Grave" in the subject field. Thank you!
If you have a minute please visit daddy and mommie's memorial pages. Joe W. Vaughn., Rhoda V. Vaughn.
and for my gramps, he was/is my special human. Will Vaughn.
...and for all of my FAG friends out there, I want to thank you for all the flowers left on my loved ones pages and all the sponsorships.
Only a member of this awesome family here on Find a Grave could know how much all of this is appreciated! :)
This is a link to some great pics of some of the military elite & medal of honor recipients buried in Arlington National Cemetery.
This link will take you to the official Arlington Cemetery site.
I also contribute to a site that focuses on just gravestone in Arkansas. There are so many older cemeteries and the stones are fast fading away. If you have pics of any stones from a cemetery in Arkansas feel free to enter the stone and or the cemetery. It's a relatively new site so everyone with Arkansas gravestones is welcome, the more the merrier! Here is the link.
Enjoy! Bev :)
I just added the dog that 'owned' me for a few blessed years, visit my beloved boy if you get a chance, Sandy Myers.
THE STONE SEEKER
Wandering among the stones I see
The stones so weathered and worn
‘Tis difficult to find the date
On which the babe was born
I stare at the stone and am struck with awe
At the life that I knew was gone
This was someone's child, a babe so sweet
With loved ones to carry on
So I take a photo for all to see
For the family that remains
An everlasting memory of
A child of God's domain
I brush the weeds back from the stone
And say a silent prayer
For the babes that had no chance to live
And for mothers everywhere
The dove calls out it's mourning song
Among the stones so still
Echoes of the woes, through time
The choirs of despair
The stone will someday perish
The flowers will be gone
But a photo now remains of this
Their memory lives on!
And so my friend, don't hesitate
To film the weathered stone
Those who live within your hearts
Are never truly gone

|Danita Willis||Searl Watson navy picture|
Searl Watson was my grandfather and I ran across the navy picture of him from WWII that you originally shared. I love this picture!
Do you still have a copy of it that we might could possibly get a copy of? The one on here we tried to print but it is very little and blurry. We don't have any of his navy pictures and would love to have one.
How do you know Searl? My mother is Paula Watson Frank, his first child and only daughter.
Thanks and have a great weekend!

|Nancy Cornelius||RE: Arthur Decker|
The person that is the owner of the Asbury memorial is his daughter. She describes Asbury cemetery to the tee as being where he was buried. Not sure what the deal is but hope to get out to Asbury soon and will check this out. Will let you know if I find anything.
|Nancy Cornelius||Arthur Decker|
I found a marker for him in the Douglas cemetery and not the Asbury. See Find A Grave Memorial# 54904697. I have contacted the memorial owner as well.

Thank you so much for sponsoring the father of David Clayton. I just read that he wrote, "It meant a lot to him."

If I'm understanding your message correctly,
William and Anna are your 4th Great Grandparents?
Assuming I'm right, your 4th Great Grandma's name was Anna Tidwell'' Dalton.
I have My Dalton Family Bible page and also My Tidwell Family pages from our elders.
If you are speaking of the Bottom Photograph on My GG Grandpa William David Dalton's page, the couple is that of William David Dalton and Mary Ann Cecil' Dalton. Received by my elder cousin whom His Family knew William David well and my Grandpa had the same' photograph.
Are you speaking of Matilda and Andrew's son, Thomas J. Self??
The ONLY one that has That Original photograph is my Living elderly cousin whom I am in contact with. He has the original as did my Grandpa, with the Same exact writing on them. If you have the Original, you should have the same writing on the photograph. If so, please let me know what that writing is.
Someone must have gotten the two mixed up.
Please let me know if you received my email.

I wanted to thank you for posting the photo of my g-g-g-granduncle Charles Amasa Clark's marker in Rodney Cemetery (mem # 114515741). It's the best picture I've seen of the inscription. I'm curious to know when that photo was taken. The whole stone was readable when it was transcribed in 1955, but when I visited the cemetery in 1992, it was evidently so overgrown by the tree that I walked right past it and didn't notice it. By 2010, it was all "eaten" except for one corner (see http://martykittrellphotos.blogspot.com/2010/03/charles.html ). Thanks for documenting it and for all your work in support of FindaGrave.
