Bio and Links
Bio Photo I once read that memories are essential to our life; they define us. I believe that. These memorials on Find A Grave are memories, if not to me, then they are to someone. Those that went before us deserve to be remembered, respectfully, lovingly…but especially never forgotten. Just for a minute, try swapping places with one of them in your mind and see if you don't agree. Even the tiny babies, too often un-named, deserve their place alongside all the others. They were people, too.
I treat each of these memorials as one of my own family and I find pleasure in being able to link mama & papa to each other, to their children, and children to their parents; even grandparents if they are there, too. And not simply posting a name with a couple of dates, no photo, and moving on like so many do…and then post photo requests for someone else to complete the job. If one takes the time to look and see whom you are posting and photographing, often there is a story, sometimes a sad story, to be read in the tombstones. Over here is the husband, next to him is the young wife gone at age 21, buried next to 2 or 3 babies, then sometimes another wife and another infant or two – how can anyone not take the time to link this family together? I feel that it's my responsibility to tell as much of their story as I can decipher. I have even been known to look up death certificates in order to help link individuals. Yes, that takes time but I believe that "quality" is infinitely better than "quantity" in this endeavor. I enjoy doing this.
Someone wrote that Find A Grave is not a genealogy web-site. I couldn't disagree more. Should my efforts help someone, anyone, find some of their family members or ancestors, then my work is well worth it.

James Stevenson Family Cemetery
Thank you so much for recording this cemetery. My 4XGreat Grandparents are in it. I would not have known where they are buried if you had not taken the time to record it.

Thanks, again!

Please note that I believe you have attached the wrong photo to #108477908. The headstone does not appear to be that of Samuel McCants.

Thank you for all you have done for Findagrave.

james family
I want to thank you for adding the James family to find-a-grave. I had heard the James cemetery was too grown up and hard to find. I knew I had family members buried there. D.T. (David Thomas James) is my great-grandfather and his wife if Frances "Fanny" Kesiah Colvin James. I am assuming the 9 you posted are the only James family buried there. I have not been able to find where Paul Woodward James was buried. He is the husband of Minnie James buried there.

RE: Tom Carroll, Potters Field - obit
when the obit was printed. I thought if someone was looking for him they may be interested to know there was an obit.
