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.
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 are added within a matter of days, without my acceptance or denial. Please double check & verify all information before taking what you read as gospel.
PLEASE-NO death certificates on memorials I have created or manage!! Personal information should be kept personal.
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: Louie Wood
Hi Kay,
I went through the photos I took at the Richland Springs Cemetery and the first photo is Louie Wood and next to him is Thomas Jefferson Wood, then Maggie May Wood, James H. Wood & Everett C. Wood. Hope this helps. :)

I am James G "Bud" Dye's granddaughter. My son was named after my "Grampa Bud". I was 6 months pregnant with my first child when Grandpa Bud passed away. I was still in high school and very scared. On one visit to the hospital in the last few days of his life, Grandpa Bud told me not to be afraid, I would be a wonderful mother. I wasn't aware that he even knew I was pregnant.

Although I attended the funeral services at our Church and the short service at Fort Richardson, I have never been to the actual burial place. His wife, my Grandma Betty, passed away a few years later.

I went back to Alaska for the first time in 20 years about a year ago when my oldest sister passed away. I was still unable to make it to Fort Richardson.

I want to thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to see my grandparents final resting place. God Bless you!

Katie is listed on her headstone as daughter of S F and May Thornton.

Apparently, you are on the right track. Seaborn is one of my grand uncle's and I still have work to do with his family.

Sorry for the delay, my computer was down and I'm just up and running with a new one.

I have a Mary Barnett who would have been Seaborn Fletcher's second wife. I show they had two kids. I haven't verified any info on that family yet.

You're very welcome. I also added a memorial with photos for Patrick, Jr. in case you are interested. :-)

RE: Martha Jane McCown (#59668121)
No, I didn't. She was married twice. 1st to Sampson Walker, and he died in the CW, and then she married James Sorrell, and I only have record of two daughters for them, born 1865 and 1867. Sorry. It is an unusual name. Thanks for asking.
