|Bio and Links|
I began researching the family history of both myself and my wife Suzanna in July of 2010. Little did I realize how much this new hobby would be come so important to my life. It has been a gratifying challenge as well as a spiritual mission. Genealogy has allowed me to make connections with family members whom I might have otherwise found reason to connect with. For this reason alone, I am thankful for this journey.|
Over the past 5 years, I have moved from doing personal family research to focusing on regional cemetery & newspaper research. My most recent projects have been for cemeteries in Washington County, TN (Oak Hill & Monte Vista in Johnson City), obituaries in The Comet (Johnson City, TN), Old Lawrenceville Historic Cemetery in Lawrenceville, GA, Rensselaerville Cemetery (Rensselaerville, NY) & Onesquethaw Cemetery (New Scotland, NY).
I'm a firm believer in photographing headstones, as opposed to relying on second hand transcriptions. While including these surveys is quite valuable to our knowledge-base, it is important not to consider these sources as primary and infallible. It's best to consider all available sources when researching burials.

I'm thrilled that I helped solve a mystery for you. I have made the transfer. Please let me know if there is anything else.

|Cynthia Gaufin||Thank you!|
Thanks for taking the photo of Susannah Saylor's headstone too. You are so kind to volunteer for findagrave.com. I am so very grateful to you.
|Cynthia Gaufin||Thank you so much!|
Thank you so much for taking the photo of Dollie Saylor Sims headstone for me. I really appreciate you taking your time and energy to volunteer for findagrave.com and for taking and posting this photo. I live on the west coast and I don't know if I would ever be able to get to Tennessee.

Thanks for your help Rob!

Rob, I have requested David's(136050996) Mother to be deleted, as by his birth date I think he was a stepchild. Her first husband hadn't passed yet, and she had another child by him after David's birth. I think I probably requested she be added at one time because they are on the same stone. My mistake, and I'm sorry for the inconvenience.

I believe his father's last name was Wallen and his mother's maiden name was Latham.
Thank you for all you do to aid others in their research.
Hey Rob, I seen where you posted obit. for William J. Tanner (BILL), thank's for that, I'm curious are you maybe related.

Gertrude is my Great Great Grandmother and her birth date is from a family bible that was copied by her son who is my Great Grandfather.
|Renee Wright||Francis Sheffey|
I have added a memorial for Francis Sheffey which I think is the same as your memorial #140167944
Information is from cemetery records ..

Memorial# 99082193 - You sent an edit that she was born in VA. Could you tell me where you got that info? I only found her on the 1880 census, which says she was born in GA, but her parents were born in VA. Thanks.
