|Bio and Links|
I began my genealogy "career" (hobby, avocation, obsession, "disease," whatever) in April 1974, when my older son was 3 months old. During that period, I have trekked through many a cemetery, always armed with my camera (and frequently with several yards of pellum and charcoal pencils for gravestone rubbings).|
I ended a somewhat dormant period of my genealogical pursuits a couple of summers ago when I subscribed to Ancestry.com and have been fairly active since then. Although I would love to have the international version to explore in Europe, especially some of my Irish roots, I subscribe to the domestic version only at present. Ancestry.com is really amazing.
Since becoming a contributor, I have come to learn what a wonderful resource the Find-A-Grave System really is. I will not be in the same league with those whose contributions number in the 6 figures, but I do plan to be a very regular contributor. I look forward to working with all parts of the system to further my own research but also to assist others who might request my assistance.
With Regard to Memorials which I may add on individuals not within my own family: I am happy to make appropriate corrections or add details via the "Suggest A Correction" button on the memorial. I will also be pleased to consider any appropriate transfers of management for such memorials. To document the date and reason for transfers, and hopefully prevent possible deletion of memorials and/or family squabbles, in requesting transfer of a memorial, please leave a message here including the memorial name & number, and your relationship, name & member ID.
I have no intent of commercial or financial gain from posting information on this site. I do this solely for my own enjoyment and for non-family additions I might make as a service to others searching for family burial locations for personal or genealogy purposes.
If I have created a memorial for a family member of yours, please feel free to request a transfer.
Any photo I have posted on Find a Grave is intended to be used.... Please feel free to use them for personal, non-commercial use and in the documentation of your loved ones.
Thank you! Gerald

Genealogy begins as an interest, becomes a hobby, continues as an avocation and in the last stages, is an incurable disease.

Thank you for the note. Larry was my brother and you would think I would have caught my typo. I am well aware of when he was born! I appreciate your diligence.

Her parents have been added

Correction done. Thank you.
|L Bruns||John E. Gannaway, III 78007504|
I received your message regarding Mr. Gannaway and his wife. I wish I knew the answer to your question. I am not the creator of this memorial, merely the one who maintains the memorials created by Stoneshooter, who has since become inactive. I see that the Gannaways are in her family line. If you are in the family line I'll be happy to transfer this memorial to you for maintenance.
kindest regards, LBruns

Hi Gerald, I wanted 2 let U know that I have come across more Cook family info. It is concerning John &Lucinda (Brunson) Cook. I got cemetery pics and dates and more. John had 2 marriages. His 2nd wife was Eliza C. Hicks. All of the info is on Find A Grave. I am adding it to my Cook tree now. I think I had a bunch of Brunson info also. I found it at Yalobusha, MS. The Cooks R in the Cook cemetery.
