Bio and Links
Hi, I AM 63 RETIRED,AND AN AVID GENEALOGIST. FAMILY HISTORY IS VERY IMPORTANT TO ME,AND IF BY TAKING PICTURES,I CAN IN SOME WAY SAVE A LITTLE PART OF PEOPLE'S HISTORY,THEN I FEEL LIKE I'VE ACCOMPLISHED SOMETHING. I LIVE IN ODESSA,TEXAS,
AND WILL GLADLY CHECK OUT CEMETERIES WITHIN A 200 MILE RADIUS, AND FARTHER IF I CAN. IF I HAVE MADE A MISTAKE OR IF I LIST SOMEONE THAT YOU WANT TRANSFERRED ,LET ME KNOW.
FEEL FREE TO USE MY PHOTO'S;JUST PLEASE GIVE ME CREDIT FOR TAKING THEM OR OWNING THEM.-- I have the only photo of one of my great grandmother's on here. Someone added it to their family tree on Ancestry.com with no mention of where they got it,or what family link it came from. Now it's being added from one tree to another,without anyone being aware of our link into that family.I don't think that is right.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
If anyone comes across "ANY" family of theirs I've listed and you would like to manage their memorial's,just let me know.I don't do this to build up numbers,but to try and save as much family history on these stones as I can.It doesn't matter to me how close or how far apart the family link may be.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Don't want to ruffle any feathers,but I would like to ask that when you are sending me death locations or other info, & if you are only going by the SSDI, please do further research before doing so. A lot of people are taking what the SSDI has listed as proof positive that what it has is the place they died.That's not always so.If you click on the SSDI link it states that the location listed is the last place of residence .I've had people send me death location on the new edit tab or other info,I'll add it,then have someone else get upset that I'm listing incorrect info.

RE: Mary Webb
Thanks for the reply! And again, thanks for everything you've done @ Find A Grave. (Thank goodness for digital cameras, at 55k+ photos that would be a lot of film!) :)

Maybe you can find out why they died on the same day.

Edith Altenbaumer
Hi there. I noticed on your memorial for Edith Altenbaumer 105029425, you have her maiden name as Laughlin. Can you change this? Laughlin is the surname of her first husband, Earl Henry Laughlin... I'm sending this as an un-automated request because I can never remember the rules for how these things are supposed to be written out. Perhaps her last name should just be Laughlin Altenbaumer? Her maiden name is Broege; also, her middle name is Rose. Thanks!

RE: Vera Lavelle (Moore) Pieper Memorial# 175643116
Thanks for the explanation of the name changes on cemeteries there and for all your help. I am going to revise the cemetery listing for Vera's memorial to show what Findagrave has listed as "Ector County Cemetery" (aka Odessa Cemetery).
When you obtained the plot information from the county, you (they) did not mention if there was a headstone (they may not know). I am going to submit a photo request from the revised memorial and see what happens.
Again, many thanks for your help. Lonnie

RE: siblings
This has happened on some of my memorials. I think if you contact the person directly that posted the picture or linked 2 memorials and ask them to remove it they will do so. I wish Ancestry/Findagrave would creat a link on the memorials we each create to remove duplicates that would be better. Or even create it where the person wanting to post the photo or linked memorials has to get permission from the owner of the memorial.

RE: Vera Lavelle (Moore) Pieper Memorial# 175643116
Thanks so much for taking the time to check on the location of Vera Pieper. Sorry to admit I am more confused - you said she is in "Odessa Gardens", the oldest cemetery on the south side of town.
I looked in Findagrave and the closest thing I find listed is called "Ector County Cemetery Peaceful Gardens" or just "Peaceful Gardens". https://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=cr&CRid=2494456 Do you know if that is the same one you are referring to?
I will "relocate" Vera's memorial to the correct cemetery, I just want to be sure I have the right one.
You are being extremely helpful and I greatly appreciate it.
