Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been researching my family for over 45 years. It was slow going at first. Then came the computer and things got faster. Then came Find-A-Grave and doors opened. I have accomplished more in the last 10 years than before. After seeing how FAG helped me, I think it is important to record all cemetery records. Not just for the genealogy benefit, but also history. As one said, the headstones will wear, but the on line record will serve the test of time. I'm amazed how fast FAG is growing. I will create a memorial; go to create another and record numbers will have increased 30 or 40 in just a few minutes. I have heard folks say some are just entering memorials for the numbers. I disagree with that because the more we do; the faster the information is available.

First, I would like to thank all contributors that have helped me with my family records. With your help I now have over 16,000 names in my tree. I feel real blessed for your help.

I read somewhere, "If you don't have time to do it right…. When will you have time to do it over?" We are all trying to honor those who came before us, so let's do it right. If you find a mistake in my records, or just want me to add information, please use the "edit" tab so I'll find the record quicker.

I grew up in the Virginia Tidewater area and have since moved west and now in the Tri City, Virginia area. If I can be of help, please let me know.

"Life should not be just a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming woo hoo what a ride!" (thanks Suzy)

Thanks for the visit.

Susan Payne Jones Mathews
I was wonderfully surprised to find a photo of my great grandmother, Susan Payne Jones Mathews, in addition to her gravestone. Do you know the identities of the people in the photo? I would appreciate any information you can share.

Hi there Goldeneagle. What a wonderful service you are providing! I was thrilled to find my granduncle's grave indexed here by you. I know how much work it was to make the page. I hope you don't mind a little correction. I know his name looks like Gossie but it was actually Cossie! Thank you so much again... it really means a lot.
