Bio and Links
Bio Photo "It is said every person has three deaths.
The first is the actual physical death, when the spirit leaves the body.
The 2nd death is when the body is lowered into the grave,never again to be seen in the flesh.
The 3rd and final death comes much later,when all who knew that person have joined them in the afterlife,and the name, even existence of that person vanishes from knowledge."
For this reason I make myself available to do tombstone searches and take photos of same in my area. I have retired from active work and enjoy doing genealogy research on my family. I will attempt to locate and photograph any requests. I do not date nor watermark my photos. Permission is granted to use my photos for personal purposes only. Please contact me for other purposes.

Old Proverb
I am going to add a pet peeve here. People who are only interested in numbers should at least wait a respectful time before posting a memorial to allow a family member to do just that. Posting a memorial a day prior to burial is very disrespectful of the family.

The Smiley's
Thank you so much for your time in taking the Smiley's grave photo's. It is sad, Rev. Thomas Smiley committed suicide by hanging. He had a history of depression. He could not handle it anymore after the death of his wife and he could not minister at the church he wanted to in North Carolina. He left his only child a orphan who ended up living with her grandparents.

I have been trying to find their daughter. The last I found her was in a 1930 census. She was a patient in Indiana State Sanatorium located in Adams, Parke, Indiana. Her name Leah Marian Smiley b. April 1900 in Indiana. She lived with her grandparents for some time in Missouri, after her parents death. And then she lived at her aunt and uncles house in Indiana.

Do you think you might be able to help me find her? If not that is o.k. I just thought I would ask. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks again for the pictures.

Thanks much for finding Louise Lee's grave site!
Thanks so much for finding Louise Eckert Lee's grave site and entering it on Find a Grave. The picture of the headstone confirmed her birth and death dates for my genealogy records. She would be my great Aunt, I guess. She was the sister of my grandfather Jesse J Little.
Thanks again!
