Bio and Links
Bio Photo I became interested in genealogy and discovered Find A Grave while searching for information on my ancestors. I am researching my paternal family of WEBB, SNODGRASS, REDSHAW, KESSLER, CARPENTER, HILL, and maternal family of FLEET, ALSTON, JAMES, KARNEY, WOLFE, HARGROVE, SANDERS and CADENHEAD. It's been a long journey and I still have pieces of the puzzle to fit together. I would like to thank all the volunteers that have helped me complete my family memorials. I was so excited to receive a response from my first photo request that I wanted to do the same for others. As a result, my husband and I have become photo volunteers. As weather permits, we find ourselves going to local cemeteries, taking headstone photos, and then entering the information on Find A Grave. I guess you could say our hobby is "grave walking". It is a rewarding service to do. If anyone detects errors in my entries, please notify me and I will make corrections. Do not hesitate to ask for a transfer of a memorial that is your family. I will be glad to do so, UNLESS, it should be my immediate family,as it is always a work in progress. No need to ask permission to use my photos. I believe photos and information for genealogy purposes should be shared. I think when we share information about our family, it enables us to discover more about our long lost loved ones and make connections we might not have, otherwise, found.

RE: Duplicate Headstone Photos
I have never meant any disrespect to anyone. I have had many requests for updated photos from family members wanting a more current pic to view the current condition of the marker or area. The most common reasons are cemetery vandalism, weather, and different angles to include various things. Also, flowers placed by other family members who are unable to photograph for whatever reason. If I have offended you or anyone else it was certainly not intentional and I do hope you and any others would understand and accept that. I actually have taken photos for one family member and then removed it for another, caught in the middle so to speak. It is just a photograph so I dont mind removing or adding per any request as my only intent is to be helpful.

John Fleet/Elmwood
Complicated. John Fleet is actually buried in Fowler Public Lot #4, Sp. 346. He was buried on 1-3-1878 and so likely died the day before. There is no marker for him. This area is currently referred to as "No Man's Land" because the area was turned into a series of mass graves for the Yellow Fever Victims who died in the Fall of 1878. Dying in January, he would not have been one of those. I attached a picture of this area.
