Bio and Links
Bio Photo I recently read on another bio, "our ancestors can't tell us where they are buried, we have to find them." So true. I'm so thankful to all the volunteers that have registered the graves in their areas. My personal goal is to help register graves in my area that will hopefully help others locate the final resting places of their loved ones.

Please remember that while FindAGrave is a great tool to use in genealogy research, the clear mission of FindAGrave is to register the graves. If you are new to FindAGrave, please click on the "Help with FindAGrave" menu selection and read the FAQ before starting.

Yellow daffodils I've placed on a memorial usually signifies a connection to me in some way.

I'm happy to transfer memorials within the FindAGrave guidelines found in the FAQ (and I'm somewhat flexible on that). To request a transfer, click the "Edit" tab on the top right of the memorial and then "Suggest a Correction" tab to send me a note requesting the transfer, indicate HOW you are related, and don't forget to provide your Member ID. I'll consider all requests, but you might want to consider building a Virtual Cemetery (see FAQ).

I'm also more than happy to provide links where the final disposition is known or add additional information. Again, click the "Edit" tab and "suggest a correction" to send this information.

A word about photos I've placed on memorials. I'll gladly give you permission to use my photos if you ask me, indicate that I have granted you permission, and provide a link to their FindAGrave memorial. I have found several of my photos posted in family trees on the web without my permission and without a source to FindAGrave. This is a copyright violation and poor research sourcing. Again, please just do the right thing and ask if you'd like to use anything I have posted on any of the FindAGrave memorials.

To all the volunteers that walk through long forgotten, overgrown, tick and snake infested cemeteries, taking photos of all gravestones (even broken or half buried ones), and create memorials, thank you. Those gravestones may disappear or become completely unreadable in the future. For your efforts in registering the graves, thank you for all you do.

Happy hunting!

Reece Cemetery
The Reece Cemetery that says it is located at Hicks(not sure what that means) in Washington, Co, Arkansas is spelled with a C not an S. This is very confusing because there is a Reese Cemetery in Washington, Co. Arkansas that is located near Prairie Grove. If you will check on the picture associated with the cemetery, you will see that it is a C, not an S. Thanks so much for all the work you do.
The reason I know this is it is near our home and we are going to be buried there. Want my family to be able to "find my grave"!!! Thanks. Jackie Beall

Benoni Caldwell, Memorial# 85107857
Hi Sheryl, you're right, it does show his middle name as Francis on their memorials in the bio, I've sent a message to Heavenbound to ask where she got that info from so I can document it.

Thanks for all your help!! I think you might not be related, since you had posted that you put a yellow flower on memorials that you're related to, theirs don't have yellow flowers.... pretty clever!!!

Hi!! Do you know how I could find information about his Civil War service? I've found a pension application that shows F.1 Ark Cav, but that's all.

Also, you created the Memorial for his parents with the story of how they died. Can you help me provide documentation for that story? Memorial# 93908484

I'm trying to apply for DAR.

Thank you so much!!!
