Bio and Links
Bio Photo If I have entered a memorial for a relative of yours it is because when I was at the cemetery I look for other 'interesting' headstones and something must have drawn me to your relative. I will gladly transfer ownership to you if you e-mail me thru find-a-grave or at and give me your membership number.

I welcome corrections and updates...please use the EDIT tab on the memorial rather than contacting me directly.

You have my permission to use any of my FaG photos for your personal use. You will need to use the images on FaG because I do not keep the original .jpg images after I post...too many pix and not enough terabytes of storage!

I particularly enjoy visiting the remote rural cemeteries. I make every effort to find who is the steward of the cemetery and attempt to get a map of the sections and lot locations. (usually the county clerk at the courthouse has the steward information). Most of these stewards are old and all share a common frustration that nobody wants to take over the responsibility from them when they are gone. They are delighted to learn that FaG has taken the interest to list and photograph graves in their cemeteries.

Mem. #69366983
Hi - I was doing some research and a came across Mem. #69366983 for PFC William Reed WILSON, Jr. I see that you have posted a photo of a serviceman with that memorial, and I suspect that either you either meant to post it with a different memorial or that there are two servicemen named William Reed WILSON who have been conflated. Elmwood is an African-American Cemetery, and a newspaper photo of PFC WILSON has recently been posted with the memorial. You may wish to revisit your posting. If you did mean to place that photo with the memorial for some reason, you may wish to add a caption explaining who it is. Thanks for your work on FindAGrave. - John

Thanks so much for checking on my ggg grandmother. I was hoping that she was included under the large "Jay" stone where her son Charles and daughters Sarah White and Kate Green are buried but know we know for sure she is not. I appreciate your efforts! Nancy
