Bio Photo My direct lineages include Collins, Cunningham, Hopkins and Robinson. My husband's families are Franks, Morgan, Reid, Taylor.
It's such a shame when loved ones resting places can not be found, but don't give up. In my quest to photograph local cemeteries, I have found many mistakes because some cemeteries have been entered using information taken from cemetery book in library, not by actually walking the cemetery. Many names are misspelled or entered wrong. A stone that appears to say one name can reveal something completely different if you have the luxury of returning when the sun is in a different position. I always do additional research for death certificate before I suggest an edit to the original creator of the memorial. So take heart, if you think your relative is in a cemetery, but you can not find them, try also searching their first name.
If I have entered your relative and you would like a transfer of their memorial, please send me a request. I have no desire to "own" a large number of memorials, I just want people to be able to find their relatives resting places. If you see a mistake I have made, or would like some addtional information added, just let me know, I will warn you that I probably will transfer the memorial to you if you have an interest in it. Please do not add obit information in flower section. You may send information or request using the message option, edit link or email with correct information, I will respond to all.
I have added some relatives that I have knowledge of but don't know where they are buried. If you have informaion of any of these, please let me know.

RE: Emily Myers Photo
I don't suppose you might have a section number or area? We were there 2 months ago and the cemetery is so large we just gave up.

Thanks, Pam

RE: Andrew Cochran
Hi, Kathy; so good to hear from you! YES, I am elated Jennie has been found though a photo of headstone would make me happier :)

Regarding Hazel and Andrew; not much in my book as it is geared more to family members the writer, Wynona Smith, would be related to; Fox, Crider, Robinson, Williams. HOWEVER, I did find Andrew was the son of John Cochran; John Cochran signed a census page in 1920 but did not list anyone living with him.

Hazel & Andrew had the following children;
Fern, Lucille, Jean, Ruth, Ann
but you probably already know that info.
Just fyi; I have a sister named Lucille! :)

Sorry not much help.
Good hunting!
