|Bio and Links|
I was born in Nebraska, raised in eastern North Carolina and after living in various parts of the U.S., I now live in northern Utah, just below the Idaho boarder.|
Proud to be a Veteran of the United States Air Force during the Vietnam War(did not serve in Vietnam) and am married to a Veteran of United States Army.
The family names I'm researching the most are TEW, GODWIN, HAYES & JACKSON out of North Carolina, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Texas & Florida.
OBERMIER, FINKE, WEIMER & AGGEN out of Nebraska, Wisconsin & Germany.
I've been doing genealogy for 40+ years and it is one of the things that I love to do.
You have my permission to use any photos that I have added to the memorials and that includes the Death Certificates. This site along with ancestry.com are sites to be shared. To insist on ownership due to my efforts to search would be meaningless to why they were created. But I do understand why others might not feel this way and support how they manage their memorials.
Thank you to those who have helped me out with my requests.
A special thank you to Aleta Hobbs that has gone to Spring Branch Cemetery in Sampson County countless times to photo my requests and then to just photo all the headstones that needed to be added to the memorials there. And she has done the same in many of the cemeteries in the area. She has been simply amazing....
To those who get their britches in a bunch because I leave a Death Certificate on their memorials I say this. I am busy with a project, should one be left after it has been requested not to, don't take offense. There are many contributors and should your name beforegotten, just ask and it will be removed. Don't mean to offend and to receive demands that are mean and hurtful is not how I handle things. In nearly 7 years on findagrave.com there have been 5 people that have requested this. You can get further in life by being considerate and kind.
And I add this to those that want to sit in judgment of those of us who "Sit Around" on our computers adding memorials. You need to know this. The research put into these memorials are not done with a hap-hazard attitude. The research is done with going through oodles of records, cross-referencing and rechecking data. So get over it. It is our way of contributing and helping those that are not genealogy savvy to have somewhere to start. I do not apology for my memorials. I do not "Own" my memorials. I am a care taker until someone who is family asks for them. Wow, the judgmental sure chaps my hide...
Also, please remember that some of us might have a very good reason for not being able to go out to cemeteries in our areas to photograph headstone so, please be kind and honor our request on your end. I was a "Photo Volunteer" but for the time being it is not something I can easily do...
Many, many thanks to the findagravers that have been so kind and thoughtful over the years....

Wow, great research! Thanks.
|Aleta Hobbs||RE: Lewis H Tew|
You are most welcome! Glad to do it again! Check out the pics I am putting on Find A Grave for Starling Cemetery where I went yesterday morning. It was a cool crispy windy Fall day in Sampson County eastern NC. Rather invigorating!!!
|David Florence||RE: Hills & Dempsey Headstones|
You're most welcome, glad I could help!
|Larry Draughon||Mittie Dudley Ward|
Thanks so much for making the cemetery name change. Larry Draughon
|J Ziggy||RE: James Mooring|
I looked at his TX Death Certificate and it specifically say NO in the box for "was deceased ever in the US Armed Forces". Possibly whoever purchased the plot was a veteran (maybe his father).

Thank you so very much for your work with "Find a Grave" - as well as for your military service. Your information has greatly helped my wife and I who are planning soon to visit sites related to her family the Butler's and Best's. However, in the entry you made on Vennie P. Butler, it's obvious that his father could not be John Francis Sargent who lived a century later.
