Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello!
I have been researching genealogy for over 25 years now and enjoy all aspects of it. I am a cemetery hopper and also enjoy helping others trace their family history. Joining has now become my passion and I am anxious to have the opportunity to assist others in their research as well as expand my own. Although I am only listed in one area code for photo volunteer I am willing to take pictures in other surrounding areas and when I travel. I am willing to share information with other genealogists researching my family lines. I carry a bucket of flags with me in my cemetery kit and when I find your loved one and discover he/she has served in the Military I will place a flag on their grave. I have also decided to take random photos of sections when visiting cemeteries and listing memorials for them. If you find your relative on one of my listings and want me to transfer to you please just ask. This picture is of me standing between my 4th great grandparents markers in Pownal Vermont. John Downer who fought in the Revolutionary War as well as the Battle of Bennington, and his wife Lydia (Dunham) Downer. This photo was taken on my visit to Vermont in 2008 to attend our very first "ancestral reunion". All of us 'cousins' who attended and met for the very first time all descend from these grandparents and branch out in different lines. It was great meeting and sharing information and photos with everyone. We all keep in touch and plan to gather again.

RE: Stolen markers
crazy isn't it. Think those markers were rejected due to errors. but to make a walkway out of them is so disrespectful.

I sincerely appreciate your efforts in memorializing my cousin, Sophia. However, I already have a memorial for her at Hillside in Cuero, TX where she is buried. Would you kindly remove your memorial at Hillside-Victoria at your earliest convenience?
Here is her memorial at Hillside-Cuero if you wish to view it: 137481275 .

Thank You Again,

Hello! I was wondering if you would allow me to attach (with appropriate credit given) your headstone photo from this memorial to my tree on Ancestry?

Thanks for considering my request. :)

RE: Jean Boelle Johnson
I have removed my memorial just now for Jean. Glad I was able to find the proper cemetery for your memorial, discovering it only because I was trying to connect up her husband and found yours!! Take care and keep up the good work!
