Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in Ardmore, Carter Co, OK where my husband jokingly says that I thought Noah's Ark had landed.

For thirty plus years I have been involved in genealogy. When my mother died, she left some notes about a few ancestors she had uncovered and hoped I would continue her research. That was the hook-in-the-jaw that changed my life. I only regret that I have missed out on so many years that I could have used. Alas, all those family stories that went in one ear and out the other, and all those family members who took so much information to the grave with them.

I am, however, thankful for the tools that are now available and for FindAGrave, a platform that I have spent many hours gaining from and contributing to.

If I have created a memorial for a member your family, who isn't related to me, and YOU CAN ADD INFORMATION TO THEIR BIO (not just family links), I will be glad to transfer it to you. However, many have received a transfer/transfers & have never added anything. This isn't fair to kin who may come along later who can do so.

An exception to the above are my Bell, Dodson, & Love ancestors and kin, most of whom have numerous descendants. Much of the information contained in their memorials is the result of many years of tedious research, and as new information comes to light, I would like to be able to make those changes. For these memorials please follow FindAGrave guidelines for transfers.

Instructions for ALL REQUESTS for corrections, additional information, or transfers:

1. Go to the memorial page, which has an "Edit" tab located on the upper right side of the memorial.
2. Click on the "Edit" tab, then click on the Suggest a correction or provide additional information link, which opens a message page.
3. Type in your message.

Making a request this way insures that no mistakes are made, because it takes me to the exact memorial.

Thanks for your understanding.

Dunkin and Alexander gravesites
Virginia, did I meet you in June when my husband and I visited Green Springs cemetery in Abingdon, VA? I had asked about King and Berry relatives. We were driving a red car. When leaving the GPS coordinates and a note to thank you here I remembered meeting a Mrs. Brown. Mary Hughes

Capt. John Dunkin Thanks for photos
Thanks for posting the photos for John Dunkin and his mother on findagrave. Recently I had the opportunity to actually visit this grave of my 5th great grandfather and his mother thanks to the information you had posted. It really helped to have the picture to find the stones. Are you a descendent also?

Place of Birth
I am writing in regards to George Thomas Smith of Bryson, Texas (Rock Creek Cemetery) (11 May 1858 - 7 June 1925. Would you direct me to where you found Alabama as his place of birth. Truthfully, I am hoping you came across his death certificate.
GT was my GG-Grandfather.

Have a blessed day.
