Bio and Links

I live just blocks from Greenwood Cemetery, Orlando, Orange County, FL. It's beautiful, and I'd be happy to take a photo if one is needed. I LOVE going to the cemetery!

I have been actively photographing and documenting the older sections of Greenwood. I am currently going through all their records to make sure we get everyone on findagrave.

I'll gladly transfer management of memorials upon request, no matter what your relation (unless they are my relatives - but I will transfer a relative to a direct descendant if I am not one). I create every memorial with the hope that their family will find them. Every transfer request I receive makes me know its worth it.

Please let me know if you find any errors or I've duplicated a memorial, I'll fix it! It's so important to have dates correct and names properly spelled - but we all make mistakes, and sometimes the markers are very difficult to read.

Feel free to use my photos (with credit to me - Merf works) for your personal genealogical project. My photos are of public places, and of no artistic (I can guarantee that!) merit. I don't believe I "own" a simple snapshot of someone else's grave marker. I volunteer here to SHARE and to make sure memorials are as accurate as possible.

My mother and I are researching our family who settled in Lee, Phillips and Monroe County, Arkansas.

In particular, we are desperately searching for parents and siblings of Thomas Trotter Bonner, who settled in Spring Creek, AR. He married Elizabeth Shackelford Bonner in 1834 in Marengo Co., AL.

Current projects:

Assisting my mom and the Annie H. Darracott UDC Chapter out of Lakeland, Polk Co, FL in the documentation of Confederate Veterans.

Completing FAG entries for Greenwood Cemetery using various sources including cemetery records and undertaker records. I'm only concentrating on the lettered, older sections.

Family surnames: Allen, Allred, Bonner, Coble, Estes, Gaines, Garrison, Gearhart, Gower, Hale, Harris, Higginbotham, McGee, Mauney/Mooney, Ottertail, Raymer, Redditt, Waldron, Walker, Whitfield

Graham requested photo at Woodlawn
Merf, do you have any more information on this grave? Family services said they would have many graves with this name and it would be difficult to research.

Maiden name of Mary Amy Moffat #63626388
The following obituary for Reggie Moffat gave his mother's maiden name:

RUSSELLVILLE Reginald Lawton Moffat, 83, of Russellville died Oct. 1, 2000, at Greenview Regional Hospital. The Sydney, Australia, native was a World War II Air Force major. He was a son of the late George Duncan Moffatt and Mary Amy Riley Moffat. Graveside service was Friday at Greenwood Cemetery in Orlando, Fla. Survivors include his wife, JoAnne Hedges Moffat; two daughters, Gail Padgett of Orlando and Bonnie Basham of Tallahassee, Fla.; three sisters, Lyell Parham of Orlando, Mary Kate Wood of Leesburg, Fla., and Barbara Root of Osteen, Fla.; two grandsons; and two nephews.

The edit tab refused to send the message; hence this message.

Cypert Cemetery
I'm wondering if you could give me the location of the Cypert Cemetery in Phillips County, AR. There is no map on the Find A Grave page and I can't locate it on Google.
