Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm a preservationist and historian descended from many generations in Texas.

I was so happy to find some "lost" ancestors through Find A Grave. I joined the Find A Grave community as a volunteer, to help other people find where their ancestors and loved ones are buried, and to see photographs of markers in cemeteries they will never be able to visit personally. So many wonderful, dedicated people have volunteered time and money to make this website a success. I am disappointed it is now owned by a for-profit company, using the time and efforts of numerous volunteers.

Please give credit to the volunteers who have created memorials, and ask permission to use photographs. I will be happy to add information to memorials, with proper documentation, and to transfer memorials, following the guidelines of Find A Grave.

William Shaw obit
Thank you for the obituary for William Shaw which confirmed the info I found in the City Cemetery survey I used to create the memorial. There were some transcription errors in that survey probably due to poor handwriting. So, it is nice to know when they are accurate.

William J Polk
I just saw the email you sent me with the newspaper story about the fire at the home of William Polk. It certainly looks like it could be the same man who is buried in Old Settler's Cemetery in Charlotte. I will have to do a bit of research to find out for sure. Thank you for sending that to me, and if it is the same man, would it be alright for me to include the article you sent on his memorial?

Thank you Sheron. It is so sad that the entire Wellborn cemetery, including the grave of General James Wellborn, was bulldozed and paved over in the name of progress.

Hello Sheron:

I am in the process getting the entire cemetery onto Find A Grave. While doing so, I try to make as many family connections as I can. Capitalizing the last names is a code for me. When capitalized I know I have connected them to their parents.

It's Sheron, not Sharon.
Excuse me for misspelling your name.

Thank you, Sharon, for getting the gravestone photograph for this memorial.

I would like to ask for your permission to use that photo (and others you may have taken of gravestones of my ancestors) in my family tree on Because the photographer has a copyright for each photo, I always ask before using a photo on another web site. I will, of course, put your name as the photographer and the web site of the memorial(s) as the source.

Thank you for considering my request,
