Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been working on genealogy since 1977, but only taking mass gravestone photos since about 2003. When I visit a cemetery, I take photos of all stones that catch my eye, and of course, any that I think might be even distantly connected to me or my friends. I enjoy helping other people with their gravestone requests, when I can. If I see a request for which I already have the photo, I will upload it. When I can find the time, between doing my own research, and volunteering at our humane society, I will go back to a cemetery and do lookups. If you have additional information or corrections for a memorial which I have posted, please let me know, via the "Edit" tab on the memorial.

Please support your local humane society, and rescue a dog rather than buy.

Dowell family of Jackson county Arkansas
Are you related to the Dowell family of Jackson County Arkansas. I noticed that you posted some of the memorials for the Dowell family in the Gracelawn Cemetery in Tuckerman Arkansas

Ralph G. Tucker
Bill Matheney (my husband) was Ralph's brother-in-law. Ralph married Ruth Matheney Tucker, Bill's sister. Ruth is still living in Tuckerman. Is there a way we can connect Ralph with the Matheneys. Alonzo and Minerva Hibarger Matheney family?
I look forward to hearing from you. I am Virginia Epperson Matheney.
Thank you!

Daisy Coe Photo request

You can't imagine how thrilled I was to see the photo of Daisy Athleen Coe's headstone on Find A Grave! Thank you SOOOO much for taking the time and effort to find, hunt out, take, upload and post these photos for us. If you have any requests in the Seattle area, please ask, and I'll see what this 63 plus year old can do!

RE: William and Eulalia Brock photo request
Hi Rita, thank you so much for the information. I'm in early research on some of these mystery lines that connected me by DNA on ancestry. I'm not sure how to add them to my tree as yet but working on my connections. I'll save this info to add to my tree when I figure out why and how I'm connected, I match several descendants of these people by DNA. You have a wonderful week! Tania
