Bio Photo The following memorial is for a dear child abandoned and could use TLC from visitors : Baby Girl April

I've been working on my family's "tree" for several years now and since most of my family burials are nowhere near where I live, Find A Grave has been very helpful to me. I was born in Arkansas but ended up in Texas before I turned one! Family names I am working on are: BLACK, THOMPSON, ALFORD, ELMORE, MARTIN, BOLLS, JESTER, and others. Many of these folks are in Arkansas with some being in Alabama, Texas, Oklahoma and Louisiana (and the occasional drifter out to CA!)

As for the photos I have taken and added to memorials, you are welcome to use them for your personal family trees, on, etc. No need to ask me first.

And a BIG thank you to all the wonderful volunteers out there who claim my photo requests, inform me of problems and generally just help the whole FindaGrave community!

I am not a direct descendant either, so would you like management of this memorial?

RE: Jake Thompson

There's a story behind that picture.

We went to Clarksville, Arkansas for Memorial Day weekend. It was a quiet Sunday afternoon so I decided to find some graves from Find-A-Grave.

The ones I searched for were obscure and I could not find any of them. So, I decided to find a larger one and ended up in the middle of Clarksville where Jake is buried.

I looked up the photo requests on Find A Grave, looked around a bit and nothing. I pulled up Jake's name, turned myself around (about 180 degrees) and there was Jake's headstone! I was excited.

You be good.

I also have a photo of this lady's marker if you would like me to post that as well. Thanks

Transfer requested for Clifford!
I just requested that the person who manages Clifford's memorial, transfer his memorial to you.
"macso" is their name. There are only a small handful of people who have created memorials over at Pacific Crest and thankfully, everyone is willing to transfer memorials to the rightful family members.
You should get it soon. If not "Request" it on your end.

RE: Arlen Alford
You're welcome.
I hope you noticed what I wrote in the photo transcription on the 3rd image.
I put a large pine cone on his brother's grave straight up and about 3 rows up in the image. I did the same for Clifford. It should give you an idea of lay of the land and how close they are to one another. You may need to click on the image to see it clearly.
These two men are part of your family. I'm going to transfer them to you. They should be with family.
Have a great research day.
