Bio and Links
Bio Photo "When you remember me, it means that you have carried something of who I am with you, that I have left some mark of who I am in who you are. It means that even after I die, you can still see my face and hear my voice and speak to me in your heart." Fredrick Beekner


First of all, I would like to thank the creator of Find A Grave Jim Tipton,for the wonderful online site, then all of the many volunteers that give freely of their time, knowledge, and efforts on behalf of people looking/searching for answers and hoping to breathe life back into their ancestors, walking cemeteries, taking photos, editing photos uploading and creating memorials.

Find a Grave is a free and an extremely useful tool for genealogy!!! They are in our favor....meaning FAG is "for" us. Kept up by a United community of genealogists, historians, (beginners and experts) all of which of course, are VOLUNTEERS. We do not get paid for what we do here.

Creating memorials and fulfilling photo requests is a labor of love for me. If you appreciate something I've added, please pay it forward! If you receive "freely", give "freely"

I firmly believe that our ancestors deserve more than just dates on their memorials. It is because of that I try to add as much information as is available to me. Thank you for either your help or your understanding when I fall short.

Please click the "Edit" tab on the individual memorial, then the "Suggest A Correction" link on the specific memorial you would like me to update or transfer. PLEASE DO NOT SEND CORRECTIONS AS PUBLIC MESSAGES

If I SUGGEST A CORRECTION to you, please do not merely copy and paste the info into the bio. Dates and places belong in the appropriate fields so they can help others locate the memorial. Maiden names and links to parents are also helpful. If you want to see my sources please just ask. You can also check the memorial, as over the last three years I have been trying to give credit to those that submit valid info in the bio of the memorial.

I spend a lot of time traveling, photographing, editing and posting my photos because I love doing it. It also gives me a lot of satisfaction if I can help others find their family. I do not mind if you use the photos for PERSONAL use, but if you wish to publish or repost them, please ask prior to doing so.

I do not transfer to requesters who are rude/demanding, have no profile or who are collectors -- however,I'll always update and link memorials within a day or two or as time allows.
Transfer requests should also be requested on the "edit" tab. Include your relationship, and your contributor name and number.

I know how to add links and copy and paste biographies, so if updating is the only reason for your request, please send the info, and I will add it. Creating a duplicate is not the answer, create instead a virtual cemetery to gather your loved ones in.

Remember, those of us who list these memorials are only human, sometimes we make mistakes, let us know,and Never forget: We Are Volunteers. VOLUNTEERS. Our time and work are given freely.

The quote of Fredrick Beekner is borrowed from my cousin Mike Perkins memorial.

I am of the belief that no one is truly gone, until they are forgotten.

So with all this said, I will continue to visit cemeteries and take photos of graves, and hope someday to find more of my family,and maybe some of yours. Until then I will remain.... Calmly Searching..........

Hi, thanks for the updates and additions.
I love it when I find a picture and connection to findagrave - by adding it, the picture is no longer lost and hopefully someone will come along and request the original if I still have it. Yes, I have to do a genealogical workup on each picture to know where it belongs and so I gather more info on it - thanks for adding this info.

Duplicate Entry
Hi, I see we entered the same person on the same date. I am the Sanford Cemetery record keeper and have included the plot number and a photo. Would you please be so kind to remove your entry for Benson Ryan Boughner, #124888712.
Thank you.

Twite twin infants
Hi Phyllis,
How about I transfer theTwite twins over to you, since your are family, and you make the necessary changes.
If you are ok with that I will do it. Just let me know.
