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.

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 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 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....

RE: Spring Branch Cemetery Photos
Latitia, The weather was cloudy, but good for taking pics. We found many, but are beginning to wonder if they all have markers. We will keep going back until ... Any way, you know by now that this is enjoyable for me. You keep adding and we will keep searching. And yes, it would be awesome to talk with you face to face about all this research!!!

Mary B Page Tyndall FAG#43657269
Hello, I am working on a tree for my neighbor and you were so kind to record the information for Mary B Page Tyndall, his 1st cousin 2x removed. I came across the 1940 census for her and noticed that she and her husband had an eighth child and thought you might like to update your note on Mary's page. The child's name is Leon Ottis Tyndall (Find A Grave# 103262075). I have also put in requests to the various page managers of all the children to add their parents (Mary and James).

RE: Spring Branch Headstone Photos
Latitia, The weather was much better yesterday for being out and about cemeteries. I am sorry to say that we have not been able to find several markers for which you have requests at Spring Branch.That doesn't mean we won't look again. So glad that we got the ones we did, especially the Hammonk one, since they are closely kin.That's always exciting.

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!

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!
