|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.
Can't remember when I didn't enjoy going through graveyards. So being a part of Find A Grave is perfect for me.
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 and record would be meaningless to why they were created.
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 3 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...
Many, many thanks to the findagravers that have been so kind and thoughtful over the years....

|Stephanie Kenner Hairr||Thank You|
I thank you for putting the death certificate on my husbands great uncles profile. We are researching his family and any and all medical information is very welcome. Thank you for maintaining this site. The family we are researching are the Hairr/Hare family out of Sampson County, NC.
|Aleta Hobbs||RE: Headstone Photo|
Which one was this? Some are really terrible, even worse than I think this one. The worst aren't even on here. Some old cement markers have nothing. Weathering does it!
|Aleta Hobbs||RE: Bayne in Spring Branch|
And the weather outside is frightful and going to get even colder. Some of those temps I imagine you have. Really, it was only cold wind that day. And you are so welcome!

|Krista AQ Thompson||RE: Chester Hyrum Christensen|
Thank you for the heads up and for the linking to Chester's parents. I appreciate it!
|NEVER EVER FORGET......||RE: Photos|
|Andy||RE: Hazel McPherson & Mabel Colbert McPherson|
when I found them, I was excited... usually requests aren't so elaborate. I think it represents how terrible it must have been to lose them both.

|Larie (Tew) Morrill||Help!|
I noticed that last summer, you added a note "Family" on my grandmother's grave page. Her obituary is listed there, but I am trying to go back and get family history and I'm curious how far back you might have made it. And what is your relation to her? I have a few names that might be able to help us both, but I can't seem to dig up any grave information for them. Thanks!
|LaRae Lee||Memorial #105185636|
These are my husbands parents, would you please consider transferring this memorial to me. Thank you LaRae
