|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....

I am curious...I see you added the entry for my best friend Rebecca Dell Hall from Fayetteville, NC. I am from Fayetteville, NC and Rebecca was my best friend from the time I met her in junior high until her untimely death. I still love and miss her. Was she a relative? Are you related through the Godwin side of her family? My great aunt, Effie Guy (my maternal grandfather's sister), married Elbert Godwin. Any connection???? Would love to communicate. Small world!!!

I know....wish we could tell who did the linking so we would not send the message to the wrong person! Ah, well. Things do have a way of getting fixed, even if it takes a while. Thanks for listing Anton's grave! I was so glad to be able to add dates and location to my tree! Robin :)

Hi, I was just wondering if you have proof for marriage to Anton Lahmeyer. I cannot find this marriage anywhere. I have the following about Anton's marriages:
Anton Hermon Lahmeyer married Susan Alma Shirley on 28 May 1945 in Duval County, FL and was divorced in 1954 in Duval County, FL. He then married Vera Estelle Davis after 1954, but also ended the marriage in divorce on 31 Oct 1984 in Duval County, FL.
He was born 1917 and died 1992 in Florida. I do not have any reference to him marrying Mary, who was born in 1886, and would have been 31 years older than him, very unlikely. Plus, she was born and died in Utah, and Anton was born in Missouri and died in Florida. Could you please tell me what evidence you have for the marriage, or was it an error?
