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 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.
LINKING NOTE: Too many errors have come up with people submitting "Edits". I will no longer change any memorial without a verifiable source being provided.
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: Still Living
Actually it was no goose chase. I keep track of this cemetery and the person was already in my data base as to not having a date of death. Therefore, I never posted it to 'findagrave'. When I saw that a relative posted the memorial I contacted him and asked for proof the person was deceased. He said that they were not deceased so therefore I did not add the picture of the tombstone. Just so happens that the next day you requested a picture. So all is good.

I have just noticed the photo of the cemetery is upside down. It doesn't give me the option to delete or correct. As soon as I learn how to correct this is I will. Sorry

RE: Alabama Tombstones
All the headstones except one was very readable. But the cows have broken every headstone. This was a very interesting site because you could read all the headstones. it was just one grave wide. The trees have grown all in and around the fence. If I can locate the owner, I will check on getting some work done on it.

Great question! I used the information provided by the Kentucky Infantry Photographic Collection. I'm happy to remove it, if you like. Thanks for catching that! Sherry

RE: John O'Neal # 62068771
Thank you, Kay....although after your original message, I realized what a horrible photo I have for his headstone. Since I took the photo, the cemetery has done quite a bit of repair, so maybe his stone is more "upright" now.

Thank you and have a great one!

John O'Neal # 62068771
Hi, Kay,
I have been slowly working on the cemetery John is buried in and I'm not related to anyone there. His info and Martha's info was forwarded to me from another Find A Grave member and I'm not positive how acurate they are. I'll have to research Martha a little more since her headstone states O'Neal and she should've been a strickland at the time of her death.

Take care,

Kay, I transferred Margaret, her husband and children to you. I am not a Knutson, but my great aunt was. When she passed away, all of her memorials were transferred to me. I am happy to transfer them to kin.
