Bio and Links
Bio Photo My adventure began about 25 years ago when the family stories just fascinated me so I was quickly bitten by the genealogy bug. It has been such an honor to be able to take photographs at the Veteran's Cemetery. My Father is there and that motivates me to reach out to all his fellow veterans. He was a huge part of AMVETS for many, many years as Exec. Director and past President State of Florida. AMVETS placed the Carillon in Florida National and it always seems to play while I'm there. After I finish taking my pictures Dad gets flowers. My Mom is also actively involved in Veteran's issues on a daily basis.

Through FindAGrave I've been able to find my great and great-great grandfathers in an unmarked grave in Virginia and have since ordered them a headstone after 96 years of not having one. Through a picture posting on here by a fabulous volunteer, I found my great-grandmother's headstone in Maryland sinking about 3/4 the way into the ground and just had it lifted and restored. Thank you volunteers!!! You help us "bond" to those we never had a chance to meet and make us feel closer to those we knew.

It's warmed my heart in the stories many of you have told me when I've taken a picture you've requested. I fight the heat, daily Florida rain storms, and still say "excuse me" as I walk over someone's plot, but everyone has a story and I do my best to get that for you. Feel free to use the pictures I take anyway you want to. Also, please use the edit key for any tranfer requests. Everyone on my page are family members, but if you see a memorial I've created or manage and you are more closely related then I am I would be more than happy to transfer.

Robin?
Thank you for helping me find some of my ancestors. Benson Kidwell was my grandfather. I wasn't even born yet when he died. I vaguely remember my grandmother. Last name was Torreyson.

My Father was Arthur William Kidwell and my Mother Bonnie Kidwell. Sadly doing a search I found my father had passed. I lost ties with that side of the family since I was a child.

I remember also when I was young hearing the name Robin. Are we related? Like I said I know little about this side of my family. And would love to know more. See pictures and hear stories. Learn my history.

I'm reaching out in hopes we are related. I look forward to hearing from you regardless. Again thank you!

Torreyson Window
Robin, As a boy I attended Dulin United Methodist Church in Falls Church Virginia. I grew up and moved away but recently visited the church, and took pictures of the stained glass windows which date back 100-150 years ago and I have started adding photos of the Memorial Windows to the church members memorials that are on Find A Grave. Please visit William and Mary Torreysons memorials at Oakwood Cemetery to see their window. Sincerely Kenneth Fawcett

Robin,

I just wanted to thank you for posting the picture of my grandfather's tombstone. I was never sure where he was buried. I loved my grandfather VERY much and he was a wonderful man. Glad to see that he was buried in a Vet Cemetery!!! Thank you again for posting his picture!

RE: Ruth A Welch
Thanks anyway! Do you know if the cemetery would have that info or would they even give it out?

Ruth A Welch
Hi, my name is Georgia Welch Craft. I was wondering if you knew Ruth or not? I was hoping to see if she was my Uncles second wife. They are buried in the same cemetery and they both loved to dance. Since her stone reads free to dance I just hoped it was her. I never met her. My Uncles name was Lawrence Welch, I think she called him Larry. Thanks so much!

G'Morning Robin,

You're very welcome for the photos. I uploaded Jean as well. That was my first time in that cemetery. It's a very nice place. I wish they were all as easy to navigate.

Have a great day..
Nora
