Bio and Links
Bio Photo Thank you for visiting my page and for all you do here at Find A Grave. I enjoy this website and have met new friends and distant cousins as a result. Thank you to everyone who has provided photos, links, and other information.

The vast majority of my memorials are relatives. Some close, some distant, others in between.

Please be sure to use the Edit tab, then the Suggest a Correction . . . link when requesting updates, transfers, links to family members, etc. This feature is designed to eliminate frustration on all parts due to misspellings, having to search through multiple memorials, etc. Unlike some, I will not ignore/delete your public message regarding the above without first contacting you, but do require you use the proper avenue.

Find a Grave guidelines stating: "Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren." are, in my view, just that. If you're more closely related than I and have information to add to a memorial, I'll more than likely transfer to you. Be sure to state your exact relation when requesting a transfer.

It would be most appreciated if you would not post obituaries or death certificates as photos on any of my memorials. Also, please note that Find A Grave guidelines state you should not post biographical information via a Virtual Flower. I think it may partly be because the creator/manager of the memorial is not notified when a Virtual Flower is left, and may not run across this vital information for days, months, or even years.

RE: Chiles photo requests at Oak Ridge Cemetery
Hi Anna,

I was glad to hear from you again. I wrote the information about it that is included on the cemetery's front page at Find A Grave. My husband's parents are buried at Oak Ridge Cemetery and I have done a lot of work there recording graves. I usually take a look at the photo requests each time we go out there.

There are a number of local cemeteries that begin with, "Oak," and I think I have previously looked unsuccessfully for the Chiles grave so I wondered whether I was looking in the correct cemetery. Sometimes I forget that other people are not on the same page as I am. From your additional info I'm sure you have the correct cemetery. Oak Ridge is privately owned and, unfortunately, not as well maintained as it could be. The death date occured before the cemetery was transcribed in 1998. Since the surname is not included in the transcription (which was painstakingly completed by the DGS) it could be that the grave is unmarked or that the stone had been destroyed prior to the date of transcription.

The cemetery does not have a regular office but they do have records. You might try to contact the sexton, Alan Bradford. His family owns the cemetery and he has been cutting their grass for over 30 years. He could probably tell you whether there is a stone, and might even take a picture for you with his cell phone. I know he has done that for someone else. You can leave a message for him and he will call you back. His cell phone is: 734-775-5159. Keep me posted.
Best Wishes,

Chiles photo requests at Oak Ridge Cemetery
Are you sure of the cemetery name? I have the transcription done by the Downriver Genealogical Society in 1998 and that surname is not indexed.

RE: Keith's
Elmer Logan Keith was the son of William James and Mary Ann Plummer. Williams parents were William Drake and Christenay Lawrence. and William's dad was James T Keith. James is 5th generation from William that came over from Ireland, comes down from Noble Keith.

And, yes it always great to find another cousin!

RE: Keith's
Then we are related! My grandpa was Elmer L. Keith. I have also traced back to Ireland.

Seeing as you have so many with the surname Keith, I am guessing that they are relation? If so, which one are you descended from? My grandpa was Elmer L. Keith.
