Bio and Links
Bio Photo My white ancestors have Southern Roots traced to AR from GA, AL, NC, VA with names such as Gorham, Williamson, York, Murphy & McDade. We go back to the 1600s arriving in the colonies from England or Scotland. My northern Loomis line is equally long traced back to Indiana, Ohio, NY and CT also arriving before the American Revolution. I have Boyds in AR who arrived there from TX via Missouri, and Foxes back to England. Some fought for the Confederacy, others for the Union, they were on both sides of the Revolutionary War and some participated in the Indian Wars. Some had slaves, others did not. I'm interested in their history and creating a story to add to these names, dates, or tombstones. I want to provide this to my grandchildren. I also search for their African-American heritage and endeavor to trace their roots and slave history as far back as possible. Before finding FindAGrave, I have traveled around the world and even while at home always had an interest photographing tombstones. Now with great respect I have added memorials or photos to tell the stories of others. I appreciate those who have contributed and thru many links here I've solved puzzles or found missing ancestors. We are fortunate for this great site and the spirit of cooperation in which it encourages us all to share.

Nash Cemetery-Ar.
Hello I saw where you posted a note on Mr.Mason's monument in Nash Cemetery in Pike Co. Arkansas. I restore and fix monuments as a "FREE" hobby in my spare time. The Cemetery is in great shape, and I really enjoyed my time working in it. Thanks Cemeteryman

You will have to refresh my memory. What did you promise to do?

RE: Colleville-sur-Mer Churchyard
Thanks, cuz! The important thing is that we got these fellas in the correct cemetery. But as to the probable duplicates? You'll have to take it from here since I didn't keep a record of the names of those 10 servicemen. And if you didn't as well, then we'll just have to live with the dupes. Over time, perhaps other Findagravers will deal with those one-at-a-time. Thanks again, Tom

Hi! Of the 12 interments in this cemetery, you created and manage 10 of them. One of them is for a Robert M. Pierson who died in 1944. He has another memorial which I believe to be the "correct" one since it is in the correct cemetery - this one. I would suggest that you simply "move" those ten memorials to the correct cemetery and then I will advise the managers of the other two to move theirs, as well. Then we can ask the administrators to remove the "duplicate" cemetery from their database. Thanks so much.

Joe O. Eggert memorial
Hi,

I came along about 3 months after you posted your memorial to Joe, and did some research on him, to include writing for his military personnel records. From that information, I wrote a short biography for him on the memorial site I posted at # 56303588. Please write me at email: graveguy48@aol.com, so we can discuss Joe and other things.

Best wishes,
Morgan Benson

You are very welcome. I thought that you may not have been aware that his wife was there also. Barb

RE: Grandmother Mattie's Gravesite
You're very welcom for the photos, Bettye. Glad I could contribute to your searches. Mattie's gravesite also has one of the most beautifull views in the cemetery, being at a high, northern location. Hope someday you get a chance to visit.
Happy Hunting,
Don
