Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm a retired Navy Master Chief with 22 years on active duty. After doing the nation's work for nearly a quarter century I returned home to southern Louisiana with my two young sons. When I'm not cooking cajun food for my kids, I spend some of my spare time researching genealogy.

My preference is to roam local and family cemeteries when I have time or opportunity; adding photographs to memorials that do not have one, and creating memorials for those not represented. I never intended to build a large number of memorials that I am responsible for and will be happy to transfer according to community guidelines. With that said, I am also happy to continue managing a profile for family members too.

Under the EDIT key: You can suggest a correction or provide additional information for any entry that I have made. I'm happy to add additional stories or obituaries and link family members.

Note: I hereby expressly grant permission to freely reuse photos of gravesites and grave markers that I have taken and uploaded to this website. They are your family members and I will not impose any kind of silly copyright on them. Attributing credit to me on those photo copies is appreciated.

Transfer request
Hey Kent,

I was wondering if you would mind transferring the Memorials of Gordy William Johnston #123638982 and Eleanor Ada Womack Johnston # 123637719 to me. I would like to link them to their other family members up in Franklin Parish.

Thanks!

Cynthia

Hardy Long
Absolutely, my email is on my profile. My Grandfather was Jessie Long, Hardy's brother. I never had the opportunity to be around any of his family growing up so only know what I remember him talking about (I wish I would have paid more attention when I was younger) I have a tree on ancestry, not sure ALL the info is correct but I'm working on it. I just uploaded more pictures of them to the tree. I even found one of Kenneth and Dianne as kids. Please stay in touch, I have been trying to find where Jessie Frank and Gracie are buried but no luck. I know where the bodies were sent but no ideal on which cemetery...I have been thinking about making a trip to LA this summer just to look.

Just wanted to tell you "YOU ROCK", serving our country and still Helping us find relatives. Hardy Long was my Grandfathers brother, Ive been searching for his families burials for a while and am thrilled you did these with the obits. It revealed children I didn't know existed, hopefully I can piece together where Hardy and my Grandfathers parents are buried. Funeral home and cemetery records are lacking in LA. but maybe with these names I can be in touch with some relatives that may know, Thanks again!

Thank Kent. You are a gentleman.

Thank you for your part in protecting our freedom. Sometimes we forget how fragile our freedom is and how costly. I often visit Memorial #88199194 to remind myself of the cost.

Thank you for searching the cemetery. It is an old grave, but I was praying there was a headstone for her. Thank you again.

Hi Kent, I wanted to thank you for providing the photo of my aunt Dorothy's grave, and obit. I was also surprised to find news clippings about the investigation of her death, as I've been wanting to learn more about that. I wonder how you came across those, and if you could possibly point me to more. Whatever the case, thanks for what you've done here.

You are most welcome
If you come across any others, that I have as memorials, please feel free to request a transfer of them. It is always nice to return these folks back to their friends/family.
