Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am from NE Louisiana and my husband is from Southern Arkansas.

After becoming a housewife in 2002, I have time to work on our family trees and as a Find A Grave volunteer.

My family tree: Chapman/Averett/Leggette/Toney (from Louisiana and Mississippi)

My husband's family tree: Yocom/Clift/Summerhill/Sweeney (from Arkansas and Alabama)


I live close to all of the cemeteries in the Ridgeland, MS. area (Jessamine, Parkway and Natchez Trace) and I try to take as many headstone photos as possible.


Few of Find A Grave rules, I have found helpful:

1) Transfer requests will be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

2) How do I enter all married names for a woman's memorial when she was married more than once?

The 'last name' is the name that is on the headstone. Include other married names as part of the biography section. The 'maiden name' is only for her maiden name.

3) Photos: ONLY post photos for which YOU hold the copyright.

RE: Fenner and Rosie Terral
It wasn't much to do it. I happened to have been driving by the cemetery with my findagrave app going on my phone and saw there were two requests. I also added a picture of the only thing I could find of their son. Oddly, his marker was placed in the middle of their grave. It made me wonder if he was buried there too or if they didn't know where his grave was.

I tried to locate the dupe 177782034 but it does not show active on Find A Grave - perhaps the person who had made that Unknown Burial deleted it? Usually the memorial which stays is the first one in the correct cemetery, though I wouldn't have minded removing mine if she had similar info on hers.

Anyway, if she removed, you could link into family using the memorial I created in correct cemetery 178751434. Thanks, Sandi

Thank You!

Thank you for transferring management of my Uncle Robert's memorial page to me. I have already started going through old family photos looking for ways I can update the memorial.

I am sure you will hear from me a lot in the future as I continue to look for memorials of relatives who are buried at the Hollandale (Mississippi) Cemetery. Both sides of my family are buried there -- I am at the age where I have more relatives in heaven than here on earth.
