I have been interested in genealogy since about 1995. I live in Mount Airy, North Carolina. I believe this website to be a valuable tool to amateur and professional genealogists if used with the "trust but verify" mentality.
I add memorials to cemeteries where I have personally walked and photographed each headstone/marker. If you find one of my memorials without a photo, please be patient. I am adding them as I can. If you would like for me to add it more quickly, please just go through the normal photo request option.
I do my best not to duplicate memorials. I index my photos and add the names as inscribed on the headstone/marker to the cemeteries in which I find them. I may edit that information later as I find additional data. I do not feel it necessary for me to arbitrarily delete a memorial that I created if you move a memorial into that cemetery after the fact and don't disclose that information. This is FIND a Grave.
If you have created a memorial and had it in a different cemetery or a virtual cemetery in lieu of finding the correct cemetery, simply say so and I will be happy to delete mine and add any photos I have to your memorial if needed.
My lines include the Killoughs (mostly Mississippi) and Wolfes (Tennessee and Texas) on my mother's side and Johnson's and Stancliff's (mostly from the Philadelphia/South Jersey areas).
My wife's lines include the Hiatt's that have been in the Surry County, NC area for about 200 years.
additions to memorial I would like to add the obituary for my mother, Mary Hilda Christian Moore to her memorial, especially since my father's memorial has his obituary (Audrey Thomas Moore). My mother's obituary was quite long and it may need to be edited due to length. Can you add an edited obit? Or point me to some directions on Find a Grave on how to complete this task. I have used Find A Grave for research and have registered now. Thank you, Kathryn M Hutchens
P.S. Thank you for photos of the vault fronts for each of my parents memorials.
