Bio and Links
Bio Photo Although I do not currently live in the following areas, my family visits Clarksville, Montgomery County, TN and Decatur, Macon County, Illinois several times a year. If anyone needs a cemetery photograph in these locales, please contact me and we'll see if it can be worked out. I'd love to be able to help someone else out in return for all the kindnesses fellow researchers have performed for me over the years!

I left edits to link Patsy Weatherford's parents, William Sublett and Susannah Allen, to her some time ago using the edit tab on her memorial.

thank you,

Weatherford Family
Hi Karen,
Here is a website with some information on the Weatherford family. You may already be aware of this site, but I wanted to give it to you just in case you weren't.

RE: LTC Valentine Allen
Hi, Karen!
It has been awhile. I meant to write to Cathy, but never have. I made my tree public and have over 12,000 names now. I do have Susanna in my tree, but haven't gone down that line yet.

My wife and I are distant cousins, also! Another weird one is that the three Tuttle brothers, Richard, William and John, who came over on the Planter in June 1635 are all my 9th great grandfathers! Richard is my direct line, John's descendants marry back into Richard's line further down. Now William is the interesting one. He settled in Connecticut. Through his daughter, Anne, I descend through 5 generations of Hurds, then to Maria Beers who married my 3rd great grandfather, Wilmot Lake. His son Henry Lake had Clarence Lake, the father of my grandmother Marion Lake Means! Really a small world!

Hi Mert57, transfer is complete for Mr Weatherford's memorial. If you would email me and remind me, I will make an effort to get there and take a better quality photo of his marker.

cemetery photos
Thought you'd want to know....

General cemetery photos are not suppose to be added on the individual memorial pages. There only 5 photos allowed per memorial (without sponsorship) so that would leave 5 slots for family to add personal photos for the person. See the Findagrave rules:

"How do I add a cemetery photo?
Go to the main cemetery page and click on the 'Add a photo for this cemetery' button. Cemetery photos can include the main gate, the cemetery sign, or panoramic view of the cemetery."

"What kind of photos may be added to a memorial page?
You may add photos of the headstone, of the person, family, or home. Do not add photos of the cemetery gate to the memorial but instead add them to the cemetery's page."

On Memorial # 43189313 you have added 4 cemetery photos (2 are duplicates). You added the same photos to the cemetery page which was great. They are good photos, but you should remove them from the memorial.

Not trying to cause problems, just letting you know what the rules are for those type photos as apparently you didn't know.

Merry Christmas,
