Thank you
#76294445 & 60241420 are my ancestors. I am most grateful for you taking the time to not only bless me with these photographs, but all of us descendants. May God bless you for your labors on our behalf.

I shall be adding all of their children and parents as Find-a-graves gives us the numbers. This site is a gift to all genealogists, in my humble opinion. This way others can learn what America is really all about, each of us helping others who can not help themselves.

As a person who is homebound, you have allowed me to visit my deceased relatives. I thank you and all those who do this work.
