Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a native Texan, born in Gainesville, Cooke, County, Texas on 3 March 1945. I enlisted in the U.S. Air Force and served from 1964-1968. I made my living as a mechanical engineer for Bell Helicopter for 41 years and am now enjoying retirement. My interest in genealogy was really kindled when my father died in 1978 and I inherited boxes and boxes of documents.

RE: Tennessee Evans
I agree with you. I had trouble finding her memorial at first due to the way it was spelled. I can't understand why the family would have left it misspelled. It might have been a financial issue. Thanks for the work you do on find-a-grave. Her sister, Malinda Jane Baskin is my 3rd great-grandmother. Diane

Thank you for the news clipping I will keep it with family files. I will not post in Find A Grave for the pain it might cause to his living family. Rose

Antioch missionary baptist church cemetery
I got all my pictures added to that cemetery. I requested one death date be added and one maiden name be added that is kin to a friend and she told what it was, plus I got the 8 memorials I created deleted. I asked one person to move their memorial and they have. I am investigating 2 memorials that I think need to be deleted because the people are still alive. I'm pretty sure one is, if it is who I was told it was.

I thought that was a separate cemetery, but I didn't want to take the time to try to get over 200 memorials moved. So I just left it alone and fixed the way I knew how. I don't envy you this job. This is why I told my husband I wasn't doing any virtual cemeteries. If I don't physically walk in the cemetery and see the marker or find a death certificate saying that's where they are I'm leaving it alone. My part will be fixed soon.

I checked both memorials and they were the same person. The information came from a cemetery book and it may have been listed twice. Who knows. I deleted the more recent one. I have no information on this person. Thanks for the heads up. Janine

Looks like all the ones I did need to be deleted and pictures added to the other one. And I have to ask for a couple of updates on some and we'll be good. I have to wait until tomorrow though, since my pictures are now on my flash drive instead of phone. You sound like me, out trying to fix people's mistakes. When I first started I had 15 people to get moved from one cemetery into another. I believe you have a lot more than I did to get moved or deleted.
