Bio and Links
Bio Photo Up until I reach the magic age of fifty, I had never thought very much about my family roots, I knew who my grandparents were. With my children underfoot I was too busy to think about my family heritage. It wasn't until my children were raised and I started losing older family members did I see the need in preserving my family heritage. In todays fast pace world we have lost our family heritage. Long gone are the days of Sundays gathering at grandmas setting around sharing family memories. They have now been replaced with a burger through the drive through, and a dash to the next item on the list of today's chores. In today's world you don't visit your family you visit their electronics, whether it be a movie they are watching, video games they are playing or their checking out face book on their iphones.

I am now very much into Family History. I believe every person born deserves to be remembered. I would like to open a door for my family and help others families through so the future generations can easily track their heritage. Linking families together from generation to generation is fascinating and challenging.

I am so thankful to all Find a Grave Members who donate their time to help perpetuate the memory of our relatives. The memorials that I create are done in the hope that they may help others find their family roots and help crumble some brick walls. I take great pleasure being allowed the honor of being one of the many stepping-stones down your path returning to your family's heritage.

If I have added a name of one of your friends or relatives that you would like to maintain, if they are not relatives of mine I would be more than happy to transfer them to you. Please use the edit tab on the memorial page to submit a proper S.A.C., for any transfer or family linking which will link me directly to their memorial. I will try to be as accurate as possible. I am only human and sometimes make mistakes. If you find a mistake please let me know. I will gladly correct it as soon as possible.

Raymond Leslie Mapes
Thank you so much for bringing his memorial page back to my attention.. When I added Ray in 2010, the 1961 MO death certificate were not available online yet. They add a new year each year, this year they added 1964... Out of sight out of mind.
I keep thinking I will go back thru all my memorials and update the ones I couldn't find info on....I have added info to his Mpage and linked him to his parents.
Thanks again, very much appreciated..

Memorial # 91151298
I am attempting to correct numerous errors and confusion on the two cemeteries, Henry Cemetery and Henry Cemetery #2. These two cemeteries are both in Sevier County TN and are across the road from each other. Your memorial #91151298 for Large, Orton Lavater is listed in Henry Cemetery, but is actually in Henry Cemetery #2. I took a photo of the stone today. If you could please transfer it to Henry Cemetery #2, then I will be glad to add the photo to your memorial. Thanks, Dean Crosby

I have attached your photo of Lura Prudence Bates to my husband's family tree. If this is not okay, let me know and I will remove it. Thank you for posting the picture.
Thank you,

Laura Ryan Rousseau
I just saw the photo of Laura. I have been working on the Rousseau group all day today adding information on flowers and was so surprised to see her photo. My connection to the Ryans is Martha Ryan who married Alexis Fayard.

I enjoyed reading your note. Just like you I got interested a few years ago in finding out more about my line Fayard/Ryan ~ Husley/Krohn and I have been working like a mad woman trying to get as much done as I can. I am so addicted to genealogy that I even research those I am not related to! I decided to do the old pioneers of my community of Woolmarket in Harrison county and it has turned into over 200 family history working documents and growing. Like you I share my information with others so they will know where they came from, because without our ancestors we would not be here.

I uploaded these tonight for you. I also did a GPS upload but I don't see it worked. I can try again if you need me too.

RE: Brenda Joy Coleman Tuck
You are very welcome, I noticed that the temporary place marker was not readable after I had left the cemetery, if you know that a permanent headstone is placed, let me know and I will drive back out there.
