Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in Nebraska, raised in eastern North Carolina and after living in various parts of the U.S., I now live in northern Utah, just below the Idaho boarder.

Proud to be a Veteran of the United States Air Force during the Vietnam War(did not serve in Vietnam) and am married to a Veteran of United States Army.

The family names I'm researching the most are TEW, GODWIN, HAYES & JACKSON out of North Carolina, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Texas & Florida.

OBERMIER, FINKE, WEIMER & AGGEN out of Nebraska, Wisconsin & Germany.

I've been doing genealogy for 40+ years and it is one of the things that I love to do.

You have my permission to use any photos that I have added to the memorials and that includes the Death Certificates. This site along with are sites to be shared. To insist on ownership due to my efforts to search would be meaningless to why they were created. But I do understand why others might not feel this way and support how they manage their memorials.

Thank you to those who have helped me out with my requests.

A special thank you to Aleta Hobbs that has gone to Spring Branch Cemetery in Sampson County countless times to photo my requests and then to just photo all the headstones that needed to be added to the memorials there. And she has done the same in many of the cemeteries in the area. She has been simply amazing....

To those who get their britches in a bunch because I leave a Death Certificate on their memorials I say this. I am busy with a project, should one be left after it has been requested not to, don't take offense. There are many contributors and should your name beforegotten, just ask and it will be removed. Don't mean to offend and to receive demands that are mean and hurtful is not how I handle things. In over 9
years on there have been 5 people that have requested this. You can get further in life by being considerate and kind.

And I add this to those that want to sit in judgment of those of us who "Sit Around" on our computers adding memorials. You need to know this. The research put into these memorials are not done with a hap-hazard attitude. The research is done with going through oodles of records, cross-referencing and rechecking data. So get over it. It is our way of contributing and helping those that are not genealogy savvy to have somewhere to start. I do not apology for my memorials. I do not "Own" my memorials. I am a care taker until someone who is family asks for them. Wow, the judgmental sure chaps my hide...

Also, please remember that some of us might have a very good reason for not being able to go out to cemeteries in our areas to photograph headstone so, please be kind and honor our request on your end. I was a "Photo Volunteer" but for the time being it is not something I can easily do...

Many, many thanks to the findagravers that have been so kind and thoughtful over the years....

Cora Melverda Reed Roswell
I am doing some genealogy research for a friend, Kim Wilkinson. Cora Melverda Reed Roswell is Kim's great-grandmother. Kim is wondering if you have any info about this person. She is wondering if you or anyone else has any info on Cora's birth parents whom Kim believes are Native American. Any info about Cora would be appreciated. Thanks so much, Julia Griffith

Her crypt is at the very top of the wall in a dark corridor. This is the best shot I could get with a flash. James

Some of the memorials that are duplicates are listed in the wrong cemetery. They are listed in Pleasant Grove Cemetery, Paxton, Walton County, Florida. Not Pleasant Grove Cemetery, Walton County, Florida. I took the pictures at Pleasant Grove Cemetery, Walton County, Florida. I have never been to the cemetery in Paxton. Please ask the person that added the memorial to the Paxton cemetery to change the location and then let me know and I will delete mine and add the photos that I took to their memorials. I deleted Mary Laird's memorial that I added since it was in the right cemetery.
Thank you for your help.

If you are family we will delete ours. But if you check the memorial numbers you will see that yours is the duplicate instead of ours.

I would like to pick up your photo request but Sparkman Hillcrest (SH) does not like to provide burial locations to volunteers, citing privacy issues. Your cooperation is needed in order for requests to be filled. The volunteers will need you to call SH and request the location. Their phone number is 214-363-5401. Once you have the location, please add it to your request. Thanks.

Robert Hare/Martha Hare
Hello! I noticed that you posted information on Robert & Martha Hare. They are my husbands great grandparents. You mentioned that they are buried on the Old Hare farm. Is there any way you can possibly tell me where that is? I have Googled it & have come up with nothing. We would like to go out to the cemetery if it's possible. You can email me, please, at

Stephanie Hairr

-It should be spelled Hare but Robert's son, James Archie (my husband's grandfather), changed the spelling after a teacher told him he was spelling it wrong.
