Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am always happy to transfer a memorial to a family member closer in relationship than I am. Just let me know which ones, using the edit tab in the upper right and then under "suggest a correction" ask for the transfer of the memorial and include how you are related.

I have been doing genealogy for 47 years and have published family history books for my parents, my husband's parents, my daughter-in-law's family and my son-in-law's family. I am a retired librarian and have traveled with my husband as we volunteered to help build Habitat for Humanity homes all over the country. We have visited all of the cemeteries of known direct ancestors for all our families; I have loved adding them all to this wonderful website.

My genealogy is downloaded to the World Connect Projects link at I have 7 gedcom databases, accessed by typing in the database name in the "jump to specific database" box or by searching by name and looking for my entry with one of the database names below:
gravleesellers, druinlewis, macyblair, barchliger, lewisadams, rudisilltrigg or fieldmasser.

RE: Louis, Cornelia & Milledge Brown
the brown family members I took photos of are on a corner as you come into the cemetery under the double arched entry there are only four graves the elder Louis and wife have a standing headstone, the son Milledge and his wife as do the parent haave slabs of gray granite if the jr louis was cremated he could be buried here however I didn't add this photo to his memorial as there are many graves not yet photographed yet in this vast cemetery. I will keep looking and pass this along to another I know takes photos in this cemetery frequently. Happy Hunting ! Bren

Thank you so very much for the great, clear photo of my g.g.g.g.grandfather's headstone! Living in California, I haven't been able to make the trip to Kentucky, so I sincerely appreciate your gift.

RE: New Leipzig Baptist Cem in Grant Co, ND.
I will try to find out who is buried where through church records etc. It will take some time to sort this out but I am sure we can do it. I would love to do site visits and will try to do so.
Thankyou and Take care!!!!!!!!!!!!

RE: Emmett Y. Dishman Headstone Photo
Diane, I really appreciate all you have done to support Find A Grave and all the researchers that count on you and others like you to provide information that supports their research. While I have genealogical interest in the Dishman family and have many as aunts, uncles, and cousins, I really don't want to take over the memorials. If it is important to you to get rid of a few I will be happy to take them. A review of your contributor page shows you have done your share and a couple other people's also. Thanks again Diane. You are a jewel.

RE: Walton Cem & Eells burials
Thank you for the Eells photos, Diane. I didn't really expect anything so readable given that Hannah died before 1820. Fantastic! Samuel and Hannah are my 3rd great grandparents. And thanks for adding the other photos and memorials. You've filled in a lot of holes! Thanks again.

Bio photo
Love your bio photo . . .wish more people (including Find A Grave members) would take the time to uncover hidden or partially hidden graves. I keep tools in my car for this very purpose and have pulled many weeds with my hands to preserve them.
