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. 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 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....

Good morning, thank you for the info sent for Parmelia, and just a note I am going to transfer her memorial to you and maybe you can word it better than I can. Would appreciate it very much to see the correct info on it.
Have a great day.

RE: Golda Ethel Mooring Love
No problem - glad to assist! I work my entries every day and try to do the edits as soon as I see them or at least the same day for sure. If I don't get to an edit in 24 hours it generally means I'm uncertain about the suggestion and am researching it.

And yes, every entry is a labor of love. For me I try to maintain them all as if each one were my own personal family. And thanks for the kind words, they are appreciated!

Transfers of Basses
Hi Latitia,

I don't know if I have told you, but I have metastasized breast cancer that is spreading through my body. I have chemo almost every week, and it exhausts me so much that I have pretty much stopped doing any work on F/G or anywhere else. I need to transfer my memorials to others, and mostly when people ask for changes, I am just transferring the memorials to them. I think I transferred some to you a while back because you enjoyed the documentation part, and I had rather do the photography. But I also know that you have a large number of memorials that you maintain, so I don't know if you want any more. I will transfer these two, and if there are others you would like to have transferred, let me know and I will do that... Thanks, Connie

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).
