Bio Photo About Me
As a retired teacher, I've found a bit of time to get back into genealogy. I think I've bcome addicted to FindaGrave. What a fabulous site! I enjoy setting up and maintaining memorials for my loved ones, as well as others. I also enjoy being a volunteer and taking pictures of headstones to fulfill requests!

My photo shows what I love most -- visiting those little old cemeteries. This is the old Baker Family Cemetery in Lewis County, Missouri, where some of my husband's people are buried.

My People
My family trees include: Hill, Sells, Winningham, Wright, Ledbetter, McDonald, Cook, Hymers, Morton, Douglas, Murphy, Clayton, Flowers, Galloway, Schatz, Harris, Wallis, Baker, Kupilik.

Making Requests
Please remember to use the EDIT button on memorial pages to offer suggestions, corrections, and even questions regarding specific memorials. Also please remember that no one is perfect -- we all make mistakes.

My Photos
Please feel free to use for your personal (non commercial) use any headstone photos that I take and upload to FindaGrave memorials.

One of the messages left below is threatening, and I will not remove it until I know that a FAG editor has had opportunity to read it. Two other messages are very aggressive. Bullying is not acceptable. I will not remove any of my memorials until I complete my own research to determine whether removal is warranted, and not because I am ordered to do so by another contributor.

RE: Eugene
Anytime. I have just taken about 11,000 photos of the markers at Valhalla and have started to upload them. Hopefully will have them done in a month.

RE: David Richards
Dear Sharyl,

Thanks so much for posting the photo of my 3rd-great-grandfather's tombstone. I was just at Rock Prairie for Decoration Day the day they had their annual meeting (May 24) and left flowers for the other set of 3rd-great-grandparents I have there (Mack and Mary Isabella Gilliland) but I am sorry to say I completely forgot that David and Rebecca were there. I'm not sure I have even seen their stones, in fact! That cemetery is large and it's not one on our usual "route."

I posted a note in David's bio highlighting the discrepancy with his birthdate, which I had taken from his MO death certificate (which I just reviewed this evening to reconfirm).

I have linked him to Rebecca and will send you a request through her posting to correct her birth year. By the way, are you also a Richard(s) descendant?

I see among your messages that you may also be a Robbins. Based on a DNA test on my uncle, we descend from the Scottish immigrant Daniel Robbins (originally Robinson, when he was brought over to Boston as a slave in 1652), who married Hope Potter of New Haven, CT, and moved to NJ in the late 1660s. We are missing several generations between him and my furthest-back documented Robbins, my 2nd-great-grandpa George Robbins (1834-1881) of Holmes and Sunflower Counties, MS, but the theory of others in the Robbins listserv is that George descends from Daniel's descendants who were in North Carolina in the 1700s. Please let me know if any of these names ring a bell - that would be quite a coincidence!

Best regards,

RE: Isack Walker's Grave

Thank you very much for the quick response. I look forward to receiving the directions to the Cemetery. Thank you again for posting Isaac's gravesite. It is greatly appreciated!

Isack Walker's Grave
My grandmother was the daughter of Isaac Walker and Nancy Jane Whittaker (Walker) and we were told the cemetery his was buried in was only assessable by a 4 wheel drive vehicle. We have been searching for information or location on his gravesite for many years. Any information you have would be greatly appreciated as he died when my grandmother was 1 year old (both he and his wife Nancy died from TB). My email is
Thank you

So you have no proven sources for these Robbins that you have graves for and if I questions your research you get A LITTLE MAD.

I know for a fact there are no Sources on Wales Robbins!!!!!!!!!!! made up research!!!!!!!!!!! without any proof of any kind.

You are doing e very injustice to new Robbins researchers as having a Memorial Grave for Ian Robbins of Wales This man never lived and died and never had a wife and never had a son Isaac who had a wife Mary McCRAY

This Isaac never had a son Richard you, are no one has, not one Source for any of these Robbins, This research is simple made up for reason I WILL NEVER UNDERSTAND. WHY WOULD ANYONE DOING FAMILY RESEARCH JUST MAKE UP FAKE PEOPLE AND PLACE IN A FAMILY TREE........ ITS CRAZY! AND THEN PLACE THEN A VERY RESPECTED WEB SITE Find-A

RE: David Reynolds
RE: #65976408

Dear Genealogy Lover,
Huge Find! Wonderful Work! Your picture of the headstone of David Reynolds lays to rest, forever, the question of whether he was a McReynolds or not. He wasn't [.].

[cmtry headstone photo by 'GenealogyLover' on find-a-grave]

I'll go back and made sure I have your screen name correct.

About the directions to the Reynolds Cmtry written as a caption to a picture:
I just had an experience where a genealogist did not happen to see a citation, because I had included it as a caption to a picture. When the picture fills the computer screen, then scrolling down some more doesn't seem to be our usual behavior.

Because of that I now will write out text, use screen shot, save it as a jpg, edit the picture, and save it to the Memorial Page that way. But, I'm talking about one at a time here.

For a picture that goes on many webpages, if the original is available, I think I'd edit the picture itself with a line at the bottom: "See directions in caption."

And, personally, I 'digitally sign' all my finished jpg(s).

Thank you!

Robbins Memorial
Please do all Robbins researchers and honor out ancestors and descendants and remove the Robbins Memorial that you have ownership to. There are no records that these folks ever lived and died and this is so very bad for new Robbin researchers looking for their Ancestors!

Richard Robbins was the son of Joseph Robbins and Anna Packe and had sons Isaac, Jacob, Wm, Elisha James, John , Richard Jr., Jonthan, Mathias, Nancy and Isabella.

The records are in Tax and Land Deeds and Wills in Rowan Co NC
