Bio and Links
Bio Photo Ever since I was a small kid, I've always been interested in my ancestors. I'm sure I drove the older members of my family nuts by always asking who was married to whom and who their kids were.
As an adult I've traced my lineage back four to seven generations and still enjoy working on filling in the blanks.
I also love to roam around in cemeteries and look for odd and different headstones. I have a scrapbook of photos of these stones that I started years ago and still add to it every chance I get.
My favorite is a stone that I found in a local cemetery in Bentonville, Arkansas... it's a man's headstone and carved by the monument company is this phrase, "I told you I was sick". I literally had to walk up to the stone and touch it to believe it was really there.
I first started using find-a-grave to look up famous people's gravestones, such as Bruce and Brandon Lee, those have to be two of my favorites, they are beautiful.
I finally, just in the last couple of weeks started working on adding information on the cemeteries where I have relatives buried. It's a great way to save and share information.
If you would like to either correct or add to a bio, or contribute any information regarding any memorial I have placed, please feel free to contact me. I welcome all information. Or I'll be more than happy to transfer any memorial page to friends or family. Please put "Find A Grave" in the subject field. Thank you!

If you have a minute please visit daddy and mommie's memorial pages. Joe W. Vaughn., Rhoda V. Vaughn.
and for my gramps, he was/is my special human. Will Vaughn.
...and for all of my FAG friends out there, I want to thank you for all the flowers left on my loved ones pages and all the sponsorships.
Only a member of this awesome family here on Find a Grave could know how much all of this is appreciated! :)

This is a link to some great pics of some of the military elite & medal of honor recipients buried in Arlington National Cemetery.

This link will take you to the official Arlington Cemetery site.

I also contribute to a site that focuses on just gravestone in Arkansas. There are so many older cemeteries and the stones are fast fading away. If you have pics of any stones from a cemetery in Arkansas feel free to enter the stone and or the cemetery. It's a relatively new site so everyone with Arkansas gravestones is welcome, the more the merrier! Here is the link.

Enjoy! Bev :)

I just added the dog that 'owned' me for a few blessed years, visit my beloved boy if you get a chance, Sandy Myers.



THE STONE SEEKER

Wandering among the stones I see
The stones so weathered and worn
ĎTis difficult to find the date
On which the babe was born

I stare at the stone and am struck with awe
At the life that I knew was gone
This was someone's child, a babe so sweet
With loved ones to carry on

So I take a photo for all to see
For the family that remains
An everlasting memory of
A child of God's domain

I brush the weeds back from the stone
And say a silent prayer
For the babes that had no chance to live
And for mothers everywhere

The dove calls out it's mourning song
Among the stones so still
Echoes of the woes, through time
The choirs of despair

The stone will someday perish
The flowers will be gone
But a photo now remains of this
Their memory lives on!

And so my friend, don't hesitate
To film the weathered stone
Those who live within your hearts
Are never truly gone

RE: Elton Fallon
Hello Beverly, you are very welcome for the photos. I noticed last night that I didn't see Elton Fallon's wife Bernadette who apparently is buried next to him. I always check the reverse side of the marker for spouses, but I missed it in this case.
You may want to post a photo request for Bernadette--Memorial# 41098298.

I loved the pix you did for my father. Thank you so much. It is neat that my grandmother's first name was Vaughn and even more neat to me that I got to help out a Vaughn. How would of thought. Thank you so much.

Hello,

I uploaded an image of George A. Smith's temporary marker today.

It may take as long as six months for the stone to arrive. Since I am quite close to this cemetery, I can check back in a few months and take another picture.

(If you want to send me a reminder, that's ok, too.)

Hello!

I have a off the wall question for you. You may know 0% of this but I thought it doesnít hurt to ask! Martha Snow Taylor (Find A Grave 16785274). Do you by chance know how Reuben Harley Snow (Find A Grave 19983685) is related? You made his memorial and it seems you know quite a bit about him! If not Martha do you have any Taylorís related?? Again I understand you may not know but you donít know till you ask!

Thank you,

Joey Snow

RE: Mossvile Cemetery
Hi Beverly, this is Don Thomas, thanks for replying. Let me help you, Kimber & Elizabeth "Carlton" Thomas Kimber is the oldest son of Andrew Jackson Thomas and Patsy. He is the older brother of my great grandpa Sidney. Andrew Jackson and Vincent were brothers that married Spivey sisters. Andrew the older brother of Vincent married Patsy the younger Spivey girl and Vincent married Sally the older sister. Andrew, Vincent, Arnold, and their mother Elizabeth "Betsey" came to Arkansas. Elizabeth and John Ira Wilson had Andrew and Vincent before they were married and then they married and had Arnold. The boys went by the Thomas name instead of Wilson.
Elizabeth's "Betsey" father was Marchant Thomas in Kentucky. I don't believe anyone knows for sure when John Ira was supposed to come to Arkansas. Yet someone reports that he is buried down on the Thomas Creek along with Betsey and Arnold, and many others in unmarked graves. So Vincent is one generation closer to you. My dad always said he had not cousins but double cousins everywhere. Check our site, I have run out of room. Repsond soon.
