Bio and Links
Bio Photo In the early 1980's, I curiously began searching for my ancestors. It has gone from curiosity to a passion all consuming. There is always something new to discover!! I owe it all to my BFF, Geneva!!
For those of you who sit in front of a cemetery book or a newspaper obituary column copying deaths into a cemetery, I truly feel sorry for you. For those of you who complain about those of us who have "Unknown Burials". I believe the name of this program is "Find A Grave". The hopes of family researchers is that some one some where will FIND our lost ancestor and may even find a tombstone of that loved one. As for me, I am so proud that this site has come about where I can share my family with others and hopefully find long lost family that I would never have found otherwise. Thank you, FindAGrave.
If you come across someone I have entered in a cemetery that is your ancestor and you have pictures or a bio you would like to add, OR you would like a transfer, don't hesitate to contact me through the EDIT button. I will transfer if they are not related to me.
Please be advised that links and other data on memorials [other than those for my immediate family members] more often than not come from other Find A Grave members and/or guests and/or from Ancestry. It has come to my attention that edits/links that you don't approve within 21 days will automatically be added to the memorial. Please double check & verify all information before taking what you read as gospel.
LINKING NOTE: Too many errors have come up with people submitting "Edits". I will no longer change any memorials without a verifiable source being provided.
PLEASE-NO DEATH CERTIFICATES on memorials I have created or manage!!
VOLUNTEER PHOTOGRAPHERS: I appreciate your enthusiasm in taking tombstone pictures in cemeteries, BUT I do not appreciate additional tombstone photos on memorials when there is already a clear tombstone picture for that memorial.
FAMILY PHOTOS: I invite you to enjoy the family pictures posted, but ask that they not be copied and placed on any other website without my written permission.

RE: Maudine Shelton (#20530024)
Thanks for the heads up on this. I also sent an edit to Sparky. Maybe between the two of us it will get fixed. Thanks! :)

Kay, Tookie was the only name I ever heard her called. Don't know how she obtained the nickname, next time I see her husband will ask & let you know.

Sarah Pryor West #28376485
Hi!! It's been quite awhile since we talked. My family and I are making a trip up next weekend (october 7) and I am wondering if you have any idea where Sarah is buried? I'm afraid either she has no stone or it's indecipherable and she's the only West in the cemetery. Any help would be appreciated!!!

RE: Family Tombstones
I think both need to be left on there, and I think she is buried under the Smith marker due to the age of it. The Hanson one a lot newer. Probably put there by their children at a later date. Did you read the bio that I wrote on her?

RE: Margaret Smith (#26165588)
It is not a duplicate. There are actually 2 different headstones. They need to be left. I will try to put all of that on the Margaret Smith, since I did that one. But Judy needs to leave it on there. Sorry about the confusion,
I think the Smith was put up when she died, and the Hanson was put up at a much later year, by his family.

Margaret Smith
Kay, I am still working on Margaret Gray Hanson Smith. She has two headstone in McNeil cemetery, One is Margaret E. wife of JM Smith. The other is a double headstone with
HG Hanson. Very confusing, I believe she is buried under the Smith, and the Hanson was put in at a later date. It looks like a newer one. I will do the best I can. Do you know where J M Smith is buried, and when they got married.

RE: Maggie West # 159547472
I really don't know if they are the same or not. Have never found out. Not many people even know about those cemeteries. I think it will be ok there. Thanks
