Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello Everyone - I have been doing genealogy for 12 years-off/on. I found Find-A-Grave while doing research and think it a great indexing site for graves. And a great way to help families locate each other. I worked in the oil industries for about 22 years. Was a single mom raising two sons. I am biased but they turned out wonderful. Not only are they good looking but they have wonderful productive successful lives. Now I just recently married a wonderful retired marine and I do genealogy research. Happy Hunting Everyone - Gwen

Grace Mauldin
Hi! I was out at Prospect Baptist in Stanly County yesterday… looking for family and photo requests. I was not able to locate Grace but her husband is there with a single marker. There is some space beside him on either side that may have been her resting place but no marker… so I could not verify that she actually is there. Oddly enough, there is a contact for the cemetery that may could help… I have his phone number and name. Send me an email ( and I'll share it with you - He was helping another person on Find A Grave to locate their family members in the cemetery and I bet he could tell you for certain that she is buried there. Take care and hope to hear from you soon! Blessings, Dana

RE: Armstrong's at Rosehill
Generally speaking, I do not photograph in Chicago. If you provide me documentation that the cemetery says I can photograph there I would most likely go for you. Ace

RE: Lady Armstrong
Yes, I believe you should call them back.

The cemetery map is on the Forest Home Cemetery page and can be seen by clicking on "Click here to view all images ..." link at the lower right.

Perhaps you could print this out and ask what sections the grave is between while you are on the phone. Thank you! Ace

Hi! The location that you provided does not exist in this cemetery - Section "NIH."

Is it possible that you misheard the person on the phone and it is actually "Section IH"?

I just want to make sure I post a photo of the correct location.

Thank you for helping to clear this up.

Reminder for Lady Armstrong
Can you please call the cemetery and obtain the grave location (Section & Lot numbers) and ask them whether or not there is a grave marker?

Forest Home Cemetery: 708-366-1900 or 773-287-0772

This cemetery will not assist photo volunteers with finding the grave's location and the Find A Grave FAQs (Help File) states it is the photo requestors job to provide this information.

Thank you! Ace

Hi! Can you please call the cemetery and obtain the grave location (Section & Lot numbers) and ask them whether or not there is a grave marker? Please post this information to the memorial or send it to me.

Forest Home is a huge cemetery with well over 70,000 burials, and the information is needed in order to find someone there. I go here regularly, and since August I have found over 150 graves at Forest Home that had the location information provided. Thank you! Ace

Charles Adams/Amelia Reed

I am searching Native American History in my tree. Amelia Reed was married to her second husband William Neal Thompson. Charles Adams was killed in Indian Territory as you have posted at your memorial. I have also found this information on

How do we know that Amelia Reed was Cherokee or Choctaw? Is there proof? I know an email was sent to Barbara Kimber-Durr by Billy Brooks.

Did the Adams have Native American lineage? I know that John William Adams married Julia Proffitt in the Indian Territory also.

Need a little help if you have any information. Thanks so much...
