I try to research my findagrave memorials and add maiden names to the married females. Extra information is gathered from death certificates and census records when time permits.

My genealogy research is on my SHEW, CALL, COMER & DAVIS families of NC and my husband's LANDERS, ROPER & HUME families.

Please use the EDIT button on the memorial page when you suggest family links or updates! Requests for transfers outside of findagrave guidelines will be disregarded (ignored).

Please be aware that all photos are copyrighted. If you wish to use one of my photos you must send me a request and you must credit my work.

I know there's some controversy over chalking. I go by the Association of Gravestone Studies recommendation that no chalk should be used. Check out their page of Do's and Don'ts here: Gravestone Rubbings Dos and Don'ts. Check out on their Aluminum Foil Method. It works really well!

Can you tell me who gave you the info for this memorial? I have Woodrow Bottoms buried in Coweta Co GA and have a Active Duty Officer in Belgium asking if Woodrow may have been in the 101st Airborn Veteran. Any info you can help with will be great. dianne

Celsus Brower
My name is Lynda and I am a member of the Daughters Of The Union Veterans Of The Civil War, Tent 93 in Bakersfield, California. We have a project where we are putting together profiles and researching the men who fought in the Civil War buried at Historic Union Cemetery. As you know Celsus is buried in this cemetery. I noticed you have a photo of Celsus Brower and am hoping you will give us permission to use. We have a site on Facebook where we profile and we would like to add to the information we have this photo. We have many newspaper articles and it would be nice to have a photo to go with the information obtained from these article. Thank you, Lynda

Sarah Hunter Speer

I am beginning to search my family tree and came across some information you had entered online. My Great Grandmother was Viola Speer Willard, one of the daughters of Sarah Hunter Speer and my Grandfather was John H. Willard, Sr., one of Viola's sons.

I am specifically looking for our link to the Eastern Band of the Cherokee Indians which I believe begins with Sarah Hunter Speer. If you have any information, even if it is just names I can research, I would appreciate it so much! My father, Mickey Steven Willard (born 7/9/1955) spent his early childhood on the reservation in Cherokee with relatives and I'd love to find out who they are. I am wanting to apply for tribal citizenship for myself and my children with the Cherokee Nation and this is much-needed information.

Thank you for any help you can give and thanks as well for keeping the history of my family alive.

rex ellis (#47189176)
Hi Lynn;
RE: Rex Bradley Ellis @ Find A Grave Memorial# 119208082

Rex was my only sibling and brother. Rex died on Oct. 21, 2013 - Rex is now a Fallen Graver, and I wish to invite others to leave a memorial for him. Read about his life long contribution. Can you help me to get this out the gravers.

Also, you transferred a memorial to Rex that I would love to have of my father Lynn Eugene Ellis @ #39232524

Rex is graver; rex ellis (#47189176)

Thank You,

william Rufus
Hi Lynn,
Love the photos!
William Rufus is my husbands great grand uncle. I was looking in Family Search and there is a marriage record for a Rufus McCall parents William and Nancy marring a Harrett Mcalister in 1919. Did Rufus have a third wife? Also do you know the heritage of this line of Call's?
DNA tests of my husband shows he has 94% DNA from Great Britain.
I would really appreciate any help.
thanks Alice

Have been doing some research on family member Livinah "vina" Edwards and would very much like to use the tombstone picture of her daughter Christina Faye Johnson, who is married to Theodore Mercury Edwards. I have the large PATTERSON/BARRICK public tree and Bob Carter has editorship rights to my tree as we strive to make it as accurate as possible. I ALWAYS GIVE PROPER credit to whom performs the land survey and provides the picture to assist with the research of our family member and love for their history. Because yours appears to be copyrighted, I simply wanted to request your permission.
