Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started doing this research on the cemeteries from the area where I was raised, but once addicted, I go on and on. The memories of those from home are wonderful. I've even been able to go back in my photo albums and find photos to add to many memorials. I have no specific family I'm looking for, I just want to keep those memories alive.

Most of the contributors on Find A Grave have been wonderful to work with. Only a few haven't been willing to make additions, links or add bio's. I try really hard to include a bio with as many memorials as possible. Many old obits, I pull out of my scrap books. I feel the obits/bio's gives life to the person that we've lost, as well as gives us names to search for links. Sometimes I make mistakes so please do let me know so I can correct them.

Remember, "No one is truly gone, until they are forgotten".

RE: Bob Montgomery
I am kind of related to Gladys, she is the oldest daughter. She is my sisters mother in law and she has asked me to help her with her family. She has a pedigree chart with her grandparents on it and that is where I got the information. Thanks for adding it.

Shirley, I couldn't agree with you more. I have several memorials that need the obituary. It's just difficult to copy and paste it on with my phone. I need some time on one of my kids' laptops or some time on one at the library.

RE: Norma McCoy #156112407
In response to your Question Effie Layton Becker is my grandmother and Norma Jean McCoy is my Aunt. I have Effie's death certificate which shows Fred Becker as her husband. I have obituaries showing Fred Becker as husband and also Find a Grave Memorial 116405347 showing Fred Becker as her husband. Aunt Norma was 1 of 11 children. Charles Edward Becker was a brother to Norma and my mother was her sister. I can provide additional documents if needed.
Do you have info on Norma's children or other relative links?

Dove Creek/Peel
Thank you for bringing this to my attention. I deleted the memorial. Do you know if the Peel and Dove Creek Cemeteries are close to each other?

Walter Lee Nowlin
Hi Shirley,

I am curious why you did not delete your duplicate memorial of Walter "Lee" Nowlin. Changing or omitting the middle name is not the same as deleting.

It is still a duplicate of the same man.

When this becomes a paid position that I need to take orders from someone, please let me know. But until then....
