Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired Pharmacist; I have been married 43 years and have 4 beautiful children. My wife and I look forward to traveling, antiquing and spending time with our families. I have lived in Tyler, Tx since 1952; originally from Hugo, Ok. Searching family history and going to cemeteries is a hobby my wife and I enjoy together.
Linking familes together from generation to generation is fascinating and challenging.
Remembering past generations seems to have become a lost art and helping others connect with their families is indeed a pleasure.
In addition to photo requests, I always try to take other pictures, especially those with same surnames as the requests. If these are not on FAG
I make a memorial for them.If any are your relatives I will gladly transfer them to you.

Melanie Ward
Memorial addition
Hello, can you please make the following change to:

Lela V Yarbrough, memorial #169952992?

Please add her parents. She is my granny's 1/2 sister. If you add her parents, she will automatically show-up as my grandmother's sister.

Her father is memorial #19727898 John D White
Her mother is memorial #30834747 Ida Nancy Tolett White

Thank you very much. If you do this, it will automatically add Lela to my grandmother's memorial.
sincerely,
Melanie Ward Meeker
granddaughter of Odaysel Faye White

Can a note be attached to this grave. This is just a marker. Don is interned in Scotland. I can't find him on Findagrave.

Duplicate Find A Grave Memorial
When I was new to Find A Grave, I inadvertently created a memorial # 163762602 for my Uncle Billie. Then I found you had already created #145096497...AND you had a picture of the grave marker. If we can get the edits to 145096497, then I'll delete the other one. Thanks!

Thank you!
Hi Jim, I wanted to thank you for posting the photo of the marker for my father's aunt, Virginia Turner Carlat. We knew where she was buried, but didn't have a photo of the marker. Thank you very much.

RE: Lula Acker
Jim, The death certificate plainly states she is buried Rock Spring but guess could be wrong
If I read you correctly you have seen her marker at Providence proving the the death certificate is wrong. Not the 1st time I have experienced that. Thanks for your help and please let me know SEM-SC

Leila Spear
Thank you for such a pleasant surprise in placing Leila's memorial into my care. Find-A-Grave is such a great success only because of people like yourselves that dedicate many hours and money out of pocket transcribing and creating all of these memorials. Thank you and your wife for all of your contributions.
My mother was born and raised 8 miles east of Henderson, Texas and I spent many summers as a kid there....oh what great memories. What a surprise to find some of my former Mississippi relatives right there in Rusk County, Texas.
Thank you so much,
Thomas

Purple Heart for Kenneth B Scoggins
There is a Facebook post going around and it is the Purple Heart of Kenneth B Scoggins. The gentleman I'm sure listed in the grave you posted at Hope Cemetery in Henderson Texas. Do you have information on any family member to contact to return the Purple Heart to?
