|Bio and Links|
The life of a person is more than the dash between two dates. It is my hope that the memorials which I create or manage can make the individuals life fuller, even if just linking to family members or adding a few tidbits of information. Researching and including other family information makes them more than graves, they are people. Suggestions are welcome but please submit them using the edit button at the upper right corner of each memorial.|
Even when transcribing cemeteries I work hard to link other family members.
I live in the northwestern mountains of North Carolina and have work primarily in cemeteries there. A focus in the past was Carolina Memorial Park in Concord, North Carolina. There are 30,000 graves but only about 19,000+ documented. I've done more than 4,000 of those. Much of my family is buried there.
My current focus is a Jewish cemetery in Maryland and documenting a Concentration Camp in Germany. This will be a two year project.
I'm not about numbers. For seven years I cared for my elderly mother who had Alzheimer's. She wanted to go out but I could not trust a Mall or other public places, so we went to cemeteries where I took pictures. During the evenings, when I could not leave the house, I would upload the pictures to my computer and fill out spreadsheets. Since her passing two years ago I am not as active and have given a lot of time to upload my backlog of pictures, which I have reduced from over 4,000 to about 1,000. It's time consuming as I edit ever picture I upload. I am not related to most of my memorials.

My family can be traced back 46 generations to County Leichester, England. The family is English/Norman. They came to England with William after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The photo above is my ancestor, Sir Nicholas Purefoy, buried in The Church of St. Michael and all Angels in Fenny Drayton, Co. Leicestershire, England. The spelling of my name is the most rare of the three family groups: Purefoy, Purifoy and Peurifoy. The early Purefoys came to Jamestown, VA in 1621.
On my paternal side I am interested in the Peurifoy, Purifoy, Purefoy, Scott and Suther families.
For my maternal side are Statons, Stiller's,and Moores (from Stanly Co, NC).
My wife is from the Byrd and Carr families of Duplin County, NC.

Not sure if I sent two edits for Daisy, but the same spouse is listed twice. So sorry if it was my error. EEW
|Paula Boutwell Kerr||RE: Dell Robertson|
You are welcome!
|Paula Boutwell Kerr||Dell Robertson|
I was submitting photos for the Mississippi Veterans Memorial Cemetery, and I noticed that the photo you submitted for Dell Robertson (#163759981) is not of her marker. I thought you might want to delete it. I am planning to go back to the cemetery this week, and I will get a photo of her marker to submit. Thank you for all of the beautiful photos of markers that you have taken and submitted. It is obvious that your goal is to get a good, clear photo.

He's actually buried in Old Providence Presbyterian Church Cemetery. His DC lists Providence Lutheran Church Cemetery, but his headstone is in the other cemetery. Is there a list of burials for this cemetery? Or was this taken from the DC?

Thank you so much for agreeing to transfer my dad's first cousin, Joseph William Duke Jr., to me since you're not related to him. I have information to add to his memorial. In case you've lost the number for his memorial, it's 55934096.
If you've changed your mind about transferring Joseph just drop me a line and I'll send you the information for his bio, etc. I already added a photo of him.
My guess is you're still not getting your mail like you mentioned in your email of a week ago.

|Beverly Lanning Poole||Nathaniel Purifoy|
I added the information in Nathaniel's biography. Would you like me to transfer the memorial page to your care?
|Liz Whitley||Baxter Whitley|
Hi Robert, Thanks for answering me. You said you can not remove sister that I need to ask Cindy. Who is that? How do I write her. I thought since you were the owner, you had to remove things. Baxter's parents were not married, so he did not have any brothers or sisters. He was Grace's only child.Thanks for your help. Liz
|Tina||RE: Henriette Behrendt|
