Bio and Links
Bio Photo I want to state clearly that anyone is free to use the photos that I take for any nonprofit purpose.

I enjoy genealogy. I consider myself fairly new at it. I was introduced in 2008 by a phone call, out of the blue, from a cousin I didn't know I had. She was researching our family and found me. We share a great grandfather. I was intrigued, and have been researching my family ever since. I find that I can spend all my time researching. There is no end to the information I want to know.

I research online. I was a computer person (I make my living as an author of computer books), before I started genealogy research. I had seen Find a Grave, but was focused elsewhere and didn't pay attention. Recently (May 2010), I stopped and really looked at Find A Grave. When I realized what it was, I became a fan. I had been meaning to photo a family grave at the local cemetery, so I took some photo requests with me. I discovered I enjoyed being in the cemetery. It is lovely and peaceful. The headstones are interesting. And my body appreciates moving more, rather than sitting in front of the computer all day. So, I created pages from photos I took at the local cemetery, but moved away before could photo the entire cemetery.

I enjoy several different aspects of this research. I enjoy the puzzle, of course. I enjoy sharing information. To me, an important part of the research is making it available to help others with their research. I also enjoy the community of genealogy, cousins, and Find A Grave.

I am quite serious about accuracy. I only enter facts that I am very sure about. If anyone finds errors, let me know, but be prepared to say why you believe my entry is in error. Also, I love to add information if someone offers good data. And, I have no problem with transferring a page to someone who is more closely related to the person.

I also maintain a website providing my Russell family research at the URL below.

There often is confusion even among Missouri residents because there are three different 'Jeffersons' in Missouri.

'Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery' is the largest National Cemetery in MO., BUT it is located in the southern end of the City of St. Louis; (land was previously a military post in the Civil War).

Jefferson County is located south of St. Louis County, and undoubtedly must have a National Cemetery, but I don't know where... most likely just a section of another cemetery, as it is a rural county.

And the City of Jefferson, (the capital of Missouri), which is about 100 miles due west of St. Louis, has a smaller National Cemetery. This appears to be the photo on this memorial page.

If someone is said to have been buried at the 'Jefferson National Cemetery' in Missouri, check first at the StL Jefferson Barracks, commonly called the 'JB' Cemetery.

Hope this helps you.

This is my grandfather, and Jessie H Perry is my grandmother. Naomi E Perry is my mother. All the Perry's listed at Hillcrest Cemetery are my relatives. Are we related? Who is ther person that is managing my mothers memorial? I don't know her either. It looks like she got the memorial from you. She has disabled her messages option so I can't contact her. Is she also a relative?

hi, it's a great hobby huh. I see you did my great great grandma Welmet Nation Endicott Kight. I am wondering if there is already one for her husband William Thomas Kight, if not I will make one. But I thought since you did Welmet's that maybe you did her hubbys too. My grandma was their daughter Eugenia Adelia Kight Cavett. I can connect the memorials of the Kights if you have others. Are you related...if you want you can transfer Welmet to me. I'd love to sponser all my great's. Deana
