Bio and Links
Bio Photo I enjoy researching my own families as well as helping others research theirs. My own family includes Stephens/Stevens, Ferrell, Christenbury, Ross, Smith, House, Richardson, Broom, Starns, Black, McCall, Elrod-Mostly from Charlotte and the surrounding area. Ross' are from South Carolina. My grandmother was Charlene Dumont from Belgium.

Transferring memorials...
I am very happy to do it. It makes me happy when someone in my memorials is found by a family member. I am also happy to transfer any memorial of someone who is of special interest to you whether you are related or not, as long as your intentions fall within FAG guidelines AND you plan to work with the memorial. If you don't plan to do anything with it, then there is no need for a transfer.
I WILL NOT TRANSFER FAMILY, I do not mind at all if you ask, but please don't be angry if I decline, as I likely will no matter how I am related. I have worked very hard on many of these memorials and I am always going back to research different family members and trying to add new information. So, I consider these memorials MINE. I am open to adding any information you have and I encourage photos, as long as they are accurate and within FAG guidelines.

My favorite contribution to this site is adding photos to memorials that do not have them. Most of my memorials come from the random pictures I take at cemeteries. I try to find some sort of information to add to every memorial I create. If I create a duplicate, just let me know and I will delete it and offer any information and photos to the original memorial.

I am noticing more and more contributors who send edit requests and messages who have no way to be contacted in return. If I can't confirm your request, I will simply "decline" it. So, if you receive a "decline", or see no change per your request, perhaps it was because I had no way to contact you to ask for sources.

Please, be nice:-)
I will likely ignore bully demands and opinions. Making a suggestion is one thing, badgering someone to do things your way is completely different.

Adding grave photos...
I appreciate very much when someone adds a grave photo to my memorials that do not have them, but if a memorial already has a perfectly good grave photo, please do not add another simply because you have it. This is a chance we take when we walk randomly around cemeteries taking pictures. I happens to me all the time.
Keep in mind that only 5 photos can be added to a memorial without sponsorship. I would rather save that space for family to add personal photos, and every memorial I create is with hope that a family member will find it.

**Please, when you can, take a minute to clean off grave markers covered in dirt or grass so that they are not buried forever:-)

RE: Thanks
We know very little about him. His family all worked in the cotton mills & it appears they had a tough life.

RE: William Hall Williamson
The headstone had to be there at some point. The church has both of them on their census on their website. I didn't find anything on ancestry either.

William Hall Williamson
You asked the question about William who died in 1886 and the mother died in 1886. You are correct - I transcribed this cemetery from an old file - I will have to go by there and check the headstones. Thanks for bringing this to my attention.

Pleasant Grove/just wondered if you go back to this cemetery if you could ck this grave and see if you could read it for me a little bit, I can read some of it but some greenery is in the way and if brushed away a bit might be able to see a bit more of it as looking for a person that might fit this one, just when you go back/if, would be appreciated allot, thanks kindly, happy trails.

Thank you so much for the picture of my friend's grave. It means the world to me and helps with closure.

Tracy, you have been too kind in transferring the Williams family. I wish that all contributors were as kind and considerate as you. Thank you for a true spirit of generosity. Blessings to you always. Your new friend.
