Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been doing genealogy for almost 20 years and know the value in finding family information at cemeteries.

I'm retired -- hobbies are genealogy, travel and photography. Most of my travel includes visits to lighthouses -- I've seen over 1100 of them around the world. My email address relates to my interest in lighthouses... 'wickie' is the term given to lighthouse keepers of the past whose duties included trimming the wicks in the oil lamps atop the tower. This small flame was magnified either via reflectors or lenses creating a powerful beam of light.

If I have posted a photo to Find-a-Grave that you would like to use in your family tree or other genealogical records, feel free to copy it.

RE: Gracie Vinson Johns
I am not related either but live in the county where she was born and posted most of her family.
You can transfer if you wish since I am trying to put the family together, then if a family member contacts me, I can transfer all of them. Thanks for your help.

Hello again,
I just saw our uncle is buried at Oak Hill (the name confusion). Wondering if you could transfer? Again, as with my other relatives that you transferred, he had two names after arriving through Ellis Island. Thank you for your help...Constance #47191246

Would you happen to know who her children or siblings were? I am searching for my grandfather's sister her name is Lula /Luella Cole unknown spelling/birth date/death etc. My grandfather was orphaned in 1938 (or about) at Judson Center for Boys in Royal Oak Michigan

RE: 87136205
Thank you so much. My grandparents changed names at Ellis Island so they had two different last names. Thank you!

Thanks for the photo and the obit. Just curious; what part of the cemetery is she buried in?

She was a good friend of my mother.
