Bio and Links
Bio Photo My interest in findagrave started when I worked on a family tree for my husband. We found some of his relatives and where they are buried through this site. It was comforting to look at their headstones and imagine what life was like for them more than 200 years ago.
I would like to thank all the volunteers for their time and effort in photographing and documenting the grave sites. I was so impressed with their work that now I am a volunteer and I enjoy spending my free time at the cemeteries documenting headstones of which some, unfortunetly, will be totaly unreadable in a few years.
In photographing cemeteries I noticed some of the older, hard to read headstones have been scratched to try and make out a name or date. I DO NOT alter the headstones in any way, instead, I take several photos from different angels to try to read them.
If you find any mistakes, please contact me. I am not perfect and do make mistakes and when they are pointed out to me I gladly make the correction.

Any photo from a cemetery that I've posted at Find-A-Grave may be used for family trees, personal use, etc.

Etta Jones & Family

Hi, first Thank You for photographing the tombstones in Johnson Creek Cemetery, Greene Co., MS. Due to you I have found my Etta Sims Jones & family and wanted you to know I added her maiden name to your memorial for her. I'm not sure I like the new set up of being able to edit memorials of mine or someone else. That is the reason I notify the contributor if I have made changes in their memorial. Hope you don't mind that I added her maiden name. Thanks again for your help and all the work you do at Findagrave. Bobbye Varner

Thank you for your photo of my mothers grave marker at W.E. Clark. I wasn't able to attend her service down there nor have I been able to visit my moms grave. Your photo is much appreciated and mades me feel that even though I've seen a picture of it I've been there. Also just wanted to let you know they have now installed a headstone there also. Thank you.

Thanks for the heads up, Monika.
I will ask Lonnie Hoover, who posted the picture, to transfer it to the correct memorial.

Thanks for adding a picture to my cousin Eddie's memorial. Linda

Transfer management
I was wondering if you could transfer a record you manage to me. Record #124313331 is my father who passed away a couple months ago.

Thank you
