Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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 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 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....

RE: Mathew Strickland Headstone:
You are very welcome. I am on a mission to photograph Springvale Cemetery because of a family tree I am working on. I have yet to find there headstones, but even when I do, I will continue until I am done. LOL

RE: Headstone Photos
Latitia, You are welcome as always! While looking at your requests, I saw you had one for Hopewell United Methodist Church Cemetery of Newton Grove. So I decided to locate said cemetery, photograph marker for your request, and just any other markers that needed pics on other Memorials. Wow, hit the jackpot! Lots of pages that you created that needed a picture!!! Yay, I love it! HAve done a lot , but more to do. HAve to make another trip over there to photo more after finishing posting the ones from the first trip. On another cemetery, looked for 2 Tew and Baysdon marker requests at Piney Green Missionary Baptist on HI 242, Salemburg with NO luck!
I, so, enjoy doing with "job".
PS Spring colors of the Dogwoods, Red Bud trees, Bradford pears, azaleas, etc. have been gorgeous!

I just read your BIO and completely agree with you.

Sometimes like today, a death certificate will help clear-up things. It is the right of a family member or researcher to add them.

Thank you for your hard work and time.
