Bio and Links
Bio Photo I love family reseach, have for the last 10 years or so. My mom started with most and I'm continuing from where she left off.

Family names of Coleman, Eddleman, Stanton, Sisson, Carroll, McCraw, & others.

I currently live in Abilene, Texas.

There's memorials that I have listed when I go to graves to get photo requests, I also get ones that don't have grave photos or not listed. I will transfer their memorial to you, if you want, as long as their not related to me.

I have a dog that goes ghouling (what my husband calls it) with me. I try very hard not to get him in the pic but every once in a while I do. If there is a pic with a part of him and if you don't like it please let me know and I will retake the pic. I try to edit him out and sometimes some part of him is still showing. Sorry, but he is my buddy that goes everywhere I go.

Please ask my permission before taking a screenshot of the memorial and adding it to another site, as this is a free site and should not be used on a site that someone has to pay for to be on to look at records, photos, etc.

Pettit - Forest Lawn Glendale
I believe the graves for Ralph and Nelle Pettit are unmarked and adjacent to a plot for Lessie L. Pettit (1881 - 1972). Let me know if you'd like me to send that photo or upload it.

RE: Douglas, Katherine
Hi again Rebecca,

After I uploaded the photos last night, I was bothered by the shadows on the headstones of both close-up shots. The sun was setting in the west at the time I took the photos, and long shadows from the grass were interfering with the beauty of the stones. So this morning I went out early and took both shots again. I have deleted the close-ups from yesterday and replaced them with the better shots I got this morning.

Here's the kind of funny part.... I didn't think a thing about this until I was uploading this morning's photos and read again the inscription on Katherine's marker. "Until the day break and the shadows flee away."

I just thought that was funny.

Hope you like the new shots. Take care!

RE: Douglas, Katherine
You're welcome, Rebecca. Glad I could help.

Isn't that funny -- Floyd, Lloyd. It's gotta be the same person, don't you think? Well, at any rate, I have uploaded the pictures to Katherine's memorial, and I also created a memorial for Lloyd and uploaded pictures there too. I also linked the two as mother and son. If you find out this is not right, hopefully you can delete the link yourself. If not, let me know and I will delete it from my side.

Douglas, Katherine
Hi Rebecca,

I located and photographed the resting place of Katherine Douglas at Forest Lawn Hollywood Hills today, per your request. Next to her was a stone for Lloyd A Douglas (1931 - 1998). His stone is marked 'beloved friend'. Do you know if Katherine and Lloyd are related, or are they next to each other coincidentally? I ask because I have shots that include both stones side by side, but I won't post those to the online memorial if they weren't related. (Often they are husband and wife, but I don't see a spouse listed on Katherine's Find a Grave memorial.) Anyway, let me know and I will upload the photos. Thanks!

Robert Vaught ( 141164840)
You sent an edit to link him to Henry Marton Vaught and Nancy E. Roy Vaught as his parents. His death certificate lists his parents as Stephen Vaught and Elizabeth (Gibson) Vaught.

The death certificate for a different Robert Vaught (141164779) lists his parents as Henry Vaught and Nancy (Roy) Vaught.

I believe they are linked correctly on Find a Grave. If you have additional information, please let me know.

Thank you.

RE: Mary Ellen Sisson Augustus
Hi Rebecca,
I'm having an awful time trying to get your email address into my contact list. It seems that the latest update changed my ability to do that. So here is my address, I think it'll work fine doing it this way. p

The info was from her very brief obituary in Variety.
