Bio and Links
Bio Photo Genealogy has been a passion for years. Find A Grave is a way for me to "pay it forward". By helping others find their families, I can repay the many who helped me in my search. Find A Grave has been a wonderful tool for me.

This is a hobby. I have a full-time job and can't do this everyday. Therefore, my response times may vary. To ensure there are no misunderstandings, to reduce errors and to keep my participation manageable, here are my expectations.

TRANSFERS: I will transfer memorials within the Find A Grave four-generation rule. While I do believe memorials best belong with family members, I may in some cases choose to retain them. In those instances, I will be happy to add additional information or links. Certainly, I will not transfer my own relatives except in very rare instances.

REQUESTING TRANSFERS: Use the "Edit" button; I will not respond to email transfer requests. This helps ensure accuracy. Please do not request multiple transfers in one message; one person per request. Do not send requests like "transfer all Smiths in this cemetery". To comply with transfer policy, you must fully explain your relationship to the individual. You must include your Find A Grave name and contributor number; I will not search for you.

LINKS: While genealogy is a secondary function of Find A Grave, I think linking makes Find A Grave more informative and is a great genealogy tool. Again, use the "Edit" button. I will not respond to email requests. One person per request. For example, if you want to link all the children of a couple to the parents, send an individual request for each child. Be sure to include your name and contributor number.

PICTURES: My pictures are not in the "public domain". Do not copy or distribute them without my expressed written permission.

MORE ON PICTURES: I recently got a "complaint" that I didn't "straighten" the flowers in a picture. I don't go to the cemetery to take pictures of flowers. My goal is to record the family information on the stone. I may even "crop" the flowers out of a picture in order to get a better picture of the history. Plus, I DO NOT DISTURB the gravesite. At times, I've basically "stood on my head" to take a picture so as not to disturb the gravesite. It doesn't always make for perfect pictures but, just know, I did my best to preserve the history without disturbing anything. They all need to REST IN PEACE!

MY SON: I lost my son, Dustin, in 2009. Please visit his memorial 67376999. He is sorely missed every day.

IN CASE OF DEATH: I'm planning to become a very OLD lady! It's challenging to get links, transfers, corrections when a contributor is deceased. Therefore, Kathy Vanchieri or Amanda Ware will assume control of my memorials upon my demise. It's in my will!

I was in Glenwood Cemetery today and took a photo of Patsy's unmarked grave and the stone on the grave next to her grave. I'm no photographer, so please take a look at it when you have a minute and let me know if it's too ugly & not helpful enought to be on her memorial.

Best wishes, Samantha :)

Horton's in Wayne County
I was at Horton Cemetery 151 yesterday. Before I went - I did some research. Here is some info that may help you and maybe clear up some burial info on Horton's and Martin's.
1. The John Martin's, Rhoda Downing, Elizabeth Martin, and Minnie Stricklin are in fact buried elsewhere - on the Tom Helton farm west of Weatherford Creek. I got this info from:, Wayne Co. Gen Web and the Wayne Co. Historical Society.
2. There are Three Horton Cemeteries in Wayne Co. Horton #43 on west side of Weatherford Creek. According to records - John Martin-John Martin-Elizabeth Martin-Rhoda Downing-Minnie Stricklin, Samuel Martin & Rebecca Beckham are buried there on Private Property.
I have been going to Horton #151 for a few years now. The same names appear - when they are not buried at Horton #151. I also know how frustrating it is to not find them. I recently drove over 385 miles to get a pic of my gggg grandfather. Yesterday, I decided to return to Horton #151 and get pics of the Stooksbury's and others that do not have pics on Find A Grave. Last Month - I was by there and did not turn off - nor did I in spring. This time I decided to try and help find some of these Horton's and Martins.
Hope this info helps and we can reduce the requests on #151.
Blessings. If I can help - I will and in the fall when the leaves and weeds die - I will try and contact Mr. Henry Daniel - 6 miles south of Collinwood - on Butler Creek Rd. - where the third Horton Cemetery is.

Greenwood Cemetary, Parker Tx. He was my great grandfather. Stella was my aunt. Her sister was Ocia Louvica Stone, my grandmother. Thank you for keeping up records.

*4751967* You have requested a photo of Peggy. Went by there today. She does not have a marker. The cemetery has a map of where she is located. I can post that if you like even if it is temporary.

I was wondering if you know if Jerry Ward is the son of Houston Everett and Mabel Ward? They are buried in Sunset Memorial Gardens and Mausoleum.
Thank you,
