Bio and Links
Bio Photo In early 2011 following the death of my mother at age 95, as I was cleaning out drawers and boxes, I came across scads of family genealogy information and photos that had been accumulated by my father and maternal grandparents over the years. Since that time, I have become obsessed with continuing to trace my family's lineage in the hopes of passing the information down to my children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, and nieces and nephews.

When I became stuck trying to find the death location of one of my second great grandfathers, Josephus Morgan, I found it on Find A Grave. I was so impressed with this website and the volunteer who had taken photos of his grave, I decided to become a volunteer and give something back to what I had been given. While I signed up to volunteer earlier in 2012, it is only in June that I have taken the plunge and claimed/fulfilled my first missions. I have been bitten by the bug, and hope to complete many more. My wife Marsha has joined me in helping to find sites and trimming the grass and sweeping the leaves off markers. I will be happy to transfer management of memorials I have created to any relative.

Peter. Thank you so much for the photo for Alma. I have made a memorial for her husband, #134757136, if you still are able to input a photo. I still need to write up the bio, but it is ready for the photo. Again, thank you very much, Sandra

RE:Requests in Woodlawn
I requested a photo for Pauline Burns. No need to return to the cemetery and take a picture of half of the marker with only Virginia MacVane's name. Thank you for completing so many of my requests!

RE: Leighton Memorials in Woodlawn Cemetery
Thank You for the photos.
I see that there is a difference between a "memorial" and paying the $5.00 to eliminate ads.
As I have written previously I am 74, and not in great health, and now "slow" on understanding new things.
Is "creating a memorial", adding details, such as birth & death dates ?
I was able to secure photos of Vaughn Staples headstone.
I have requested that someone take & send photos of my great great grandfathers headstones, and my parents, but no answer as yet.
Some graves are in tiny, unkempt cemeteries

RE: Mary Leighton
Mr Peter Morgan:
I am 74 and just exist on SS in tax heavy central California.
If I could I would make a contribution for "memorials", but simply can not.
I would appreciate it if you could send me a photo of all three-
With great thanks Philip Nason

Abby Davis Brown

The pictures of Abby Brown and her family are perfect. I didn't see the other two views you mention but the one you have on findagrave is perfect. Thank you SO much. And the ones of Valentine and his family are perfect also. Seeing them all there together in a row just makes them more real to me. How nice. Thank you again SO much. I will add them all to my genealogy book.

I do have a question about the pictures you took of Valentine and Eva Davis 66467650 & 66467624. The large brown stone with Davis written on it, is that just a stone for all the Davis' ? Is Valentine and Eva buried on each side of the large brown stone? Do you know if Valentine is on the right of the stone as you look at the stone and Eva on the left or visa versa? I am figuring that the brown stone is just a stone for all the Davis' since I don't know who else would be buried in that section.

Thank you for all you have done for me. I really do appreciate it. Makes me feel more close to them now that I can picture them buried together. More personal than just a name on paper and just a tombstone all by itself. Thank you SO much.

Have a great weekend.

Sincerely, Candace
