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:

FLORIDA STATE HOSPITAL CEMETERIES 1-4

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!!!

The credit for this photo should go to Marguerite Gay Ham who is his 2nd Great Grandfather.

According to the obituary that some one posted on the memorial it list brothers who should have been her maiden name as Reyes. She possibly could have been married before her marriage to Charles. She died a year prior to him.

RE: Vader Stone # 35656363
Since you are family would you like me to transfer Vader's and the Chesser memorials I have created over to you. I will be glad to do so.

Vader Stone
Thanks for sending the note re Vader Stone. I have added the information to her memorial. Hopefully that is ok with you.

Do you happen to know her date of birth. I would like to add it to her memorial.
