Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello! I have been working on my family genealogy/history for a number of years (!!) and would like to thank all those who have made contributions to Find A Grave....I finally got around to making contributions, at first involving mostly my 'immediate' family (450 memorials by now), but now mostly non-family.

Paternal ancestor surnames include: Wesley, Taylor, Randolph, Wilson, Huff, Craig, Smiley, Higgins, Pierce, Simpson, Thompson, Walker, Goodall, Campbell, Carson, Downing, Minor, Ford, Aiken, Hampton, Amend, McMillan, McCollum, Trumbo, Custer, Brown, Sutherland & Hale.
Maternal ancestor names include: Garden, Spreng, Baird, Coble, Horner, Merckle, Young, Stoner, Matthews, Barrett, Clark, Holsworth, Witten, Brandenberry, Murdock, Streeter, Knosp, Faber & Wells.

Ancestry includes English, Scottish, Irish, French-Speaking Germans and German-Speaking Germans.

The current Findagrave project on which I have been heavily involved, with other contributors, is to create a complete listing of the burials of the Stafford (Kansas) Cemetery. Most of the names are established already. Now we are making links and adding marker photos and obituaries/biographies to the memorials. Making excellent progress.....!!

RE: Patrick David Barrett, Jr.
Hi Again:

Are you the person who has actually been transcribing cemetery information for Valley Center Cemetery, or was your need for a photo of Patrick Barrett's headstone just a one-time thing? You mentioned that you had copied info from his headstone in a previous message.

Thank you.

RE: Forrest Lawn
Hey Richard, First, very glad to hear you had a full recovery. As men that is one of the awful things we tend to watch out for. I always head for the headstones that are military and of course many are your memorials. I feel a special obligation to make sure they are never forgotten.
All the best, James

Do you have or know of any photos of Serene? I'd like to add it to our McMillan family tree.

RE: Lula Belle Calder Godby
Thanks for that explanation!! Sorry to be SO dense. I'll blame it on all this rain we've been having. My brain is water logged. HA! As I said before it really doesn't bother me that it's a duplicate but the lady who emailed me requested that we delete it. I guess if it doesn't get done it's not the end of the world. :o)

Take care...Margaret

RE: Lula Belle Calder Godby
If you created it then you should be able to delete it. You made me the manager so I can't. Have you tried to delete it?

Lula Belle Calder Godby

I got an email from contributor Charlotte McConaha asking that I delete the memorial for Lula Belle Calder Godby because it's a duplicate of one she already created. It's also in the wrong cemetery. FindAGrave wouldn't let me delete it because I didn't originally create it. The one you first created is # 82407935

Charlotte's original is # 80671613 in case you want to view it.

Hope you're well and surviving this awful drought. Wish I could send you some of the rain we're getting here in Ohio.

I share this ancestor with you and I am wondering how you found info about his father drowning in Iowa in 1840? I have been unable to confirm anything about William's death. If you could provide any proof, that would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, J.S.
