I have been researching my family history for over 18 years and have found quite a few interesting characters along the way... :)
I spend a lot of free time in cemeteries, not only for my research, but because they are peaceful and very interesting.

My family names are: Nichols, Driggers, Dyess, Dias, Shipp, Lanier, Strawn, Henson, Bailey, Bradley, Williams, Peterson, Young, Pendarvis, Hiers, Post, and many more. I am related to everyone buried in Sand Pond Cemetery (Levy County, Florida), I have many relatives buried in Cedars of Lebanon (Levy County, Florida), Dog Ear (AKA Black Dirt) Cemetery (Marion County, Florida) and Red Level Cemetery (Citrus County, Florida).

I am willing to transfer any Memorials that I create, provided they are not my family members, but that depends on which of my family you are willing to claim. :)


With the exception of a few family members and the Florida State Hospital memorials, most of my memorials are created from the photographs that I take. I enjoy adding the photos more than anything. It's my belief that a family member who can't travel will find these memorials and be able to see their loved ones graves.


I have received the following message in regards to the Florida State Hospital memorials:

99060SSA writes on Feb 08, 2015 9:39 AM:


Why do you list all the people in the above cemeteries with a photo of the current in-use cemetery of today???? It's misleading. Cemeteries 1-4 are 4 separate cemeteries. The people buried there are lost, there is no way to know who is who and posting them with photo's of a clean maintained cemetery is just misleading. The people are not taken care of in cemeteries 1-4. There should be 5 separate cemeteries on Find A Grave for these cemeteries.

Since this member leaves no way for me to respond, I am compelled to add my reply here:

Yes, the cemeteries at Florida State Hospital are separate cemeteries and my entries for Cemetery #3 started as it's own cemetery. However, the decision was made to combine the cemeteries into 1 cemetery due to the fact that it's easier to search the FSH cemeteries as 1 entity rather than 5. The cemetery/grave locations are listed in the "plot" field for each entry I have done. As for the photo, the current photo is shown by default.


Due to me duplicating memorials because of several Burial Unknown's, I have been trying to double check every entry, but some may slip through. Please tell me if I've created a duplicate or if I am in error on any of the memorials I create. & PLEASE don't get upset if I duplicate a memorial that is spelled wrong, or has misinformation on the original, let me know I duplicated and contact the manager of the original for corrections. Since 95% of my memorials are from photos I take, if I duplicate a memorial that is not listed under the same name/information as in the photo of the headstone, please let me know and I will attach the photo to the correct memorial.

Thanks to all at Find A Grave!! Ya'll Rock!!!

RE: Eliza Jane Bauknight
Yes, I believe that is the case (somehow they parted and then she married John)--many times (in that day and age) people would say they are widowed when they were divorced. It has happened in my family alot! Divorce had a stigma to it. So that is what I think. Are you related to this family? :)

Eliza Jane Bauknight
I know that Eliza married John Wesley Bauknight in 1910. Before that, however, she married Silas W. Bauknight in 1896 in Citrus County. She and Silas are in the 1900 Census with their first child listed.

96839378 Transfer Complete
Hi - Thanks for transferring this Memorial to me. I'll work on it carefully.

Thanks, too, for offering to check on the Oak Ridge cemetery. I haven't been there, but family members have told me that the grave is marked only by a metal funeral home sign. A granddaughter plans to come in May and arrange for a proper marker. Once that's installed, I'll try to get a photo to add to the Memorial.

Memorial Transfer
Hi - Nice work you're doing!

Please transfer to me this Memorial of my 2nd-greatgranduncle:

96839378 Daniel G. GRAHAM

He's really Daniel Grised Graham (02/1842 Montgomery County, AL - 03/1917 Gadsden County, FL).

I've been following his large extended family for many years and would like to add information to his Memorial, especially his Civil War service (both Confederate and Union--he was a "Galvanized Yankee").

I too have burials in Levy County, FL, but they all seem to be TURNERs in Williston's Orange Hill Cemetery.

Thanks for your help--and keep up the good work!

Bill Caldwell
