Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've designated myself as the family genealogist and I joined FindAGrave.com after visiting my grandmother's grave in Covington, LA. Because I have access to Ancestry.com, I try to get information there to add to the pages I create.

If possible, I let other people on this website know of any additions or corrections I find to the profiles that they create. I hope I do not offend anyone (sometimes my wife says I'm too picky).

Unfortunately, I don't have as much free time as I would like to go around to the cemeteries around here; I am more than happy to avoid cemeteries others want to "claim" as theirs - there's more than enough to go around.

Any pictures and information I upload can be used by anyone on their own genealogy pages. Email me if you find any corrections on my stuff. I try to get the right information but occaisionally there are people of the same names at the same place during similar times.

If I add a memorial page and you're a relative and want to manage that page, let me know, I will be happy to transfer the management to you.

RE: Clyde Burns Campbell
Hey,Ron. I understand how you feel, with your having done research and put it so nicely on the memorial page. I have that information on my family tree at Ancestry.com. I wouldn't want to delete that, either! But I'm not tangling with Lin again on this. I have about ten edits I am hoping she will make. Her lengthy list of rules make it clear that she will not deal with bulk requests, transfers, or repeated requests. I've already violated all of these, but still have hope that the essential edits (I had to prioritize) will be accomplished eventually. I don't know about the higher ups at Findagrave, being a newbie contributor. I really don't want to go over someone's head. I have often seen duplicates (Lizzie Burns is the other one I'm aware of at Campbellsville Cemetery), and have decided it doesn't really matter. But thanks for hanging in there and explaining the options. I'm certainly learning a lot!

RE: Clyde Burns Campbell memorial
She already told me "no", so I've transferred back Clyde Burns Campbell to you to do as you see fit. No harm is done if the duplicates stand. Burns left no descendants, so it's unlikely people will be relying on the info you so faithfully researched. He was my grandmother's brother, and among the family, he is well-known and documented. Thanks for the conversation.

Clyde Burns Campbell memorial
Okay, Ron, I'm quite new to this management thing, so be patient. It turns out that Clyde Burns Campbell's memorial is a duplicate. The memorial for C. Burns Campbell at Campbellsville Cemetery is the same person and was created in 2008. I cannot delete the 2013 one created by you because it was not created by me. (I tried.) The creator of the 2008 one cannot or will not delete that one. So can you jump in here and solve the dilemma? (This is not urgent or earth-shaking; the world will not collapse if the duplicate memorials remain, but in the interest of tidy-ness, it would be better not to have duplicates.) I'm thinking I saw some other duplicates in this cemetery, but I'm not pursuing it. I'm tired of ruffling feathers! Beverly

I went there yesterday. It will be a shame if that ramp gets built there.

RE: Jones cemetery
The Norman , Derryberry , and Brown family there are family on my husbands side. So it is all worth it. Because when we get ready we are going back to Columbia to be laid to rest.

Do you know how many showed up? I seen a lot of people and cars there and more when I was on my way our.

Where is this cemetery? I did not think I would be in town today, but plans change. Tell me where it is located and I will go to sign the petition.
