Bio and Links
Bio Photo "It is said every person has three deaths.
The first is the actual physical death, when the spirit leaves the body.
The 2nd death is when the body is lowered into the grave,never again to be seen in the flesh.
The 3rd and final death comes much later,when all who knew that person have joined them in the afterlife,and the name, even existence of that person vanishes from knowledge."
For this reason I make myself available to do tombstone searches and take photos of same in my area. I have retired from active work and enjoy doing genealogy research on my family. I will attempt to locate and photograph any requests. I do not date nor watermark my photos. Permission is granted to use my photos for personal purposes only. Please contact me for other purposes.

I am going to add a pet peeve here. People who are only interested in numbers should at least wait a respectful time before posting a memorial to allow a family member to do just that. Posting a memorial a day prior to burial is very disrespectful of the family.

Schimmel Family
Finally home and looked at all the entries for the Schimmel Family. There are a few I don't know, but the key players in my family tree -- Joseph, Josephine and Charles are helpful. Thanks again for taking the photo and for the clarification as to why the headstone is on the ground. Elizabeth

Caton Springs in Henry Co, TN
You did alot of work at Caton Springs. Thanks for all the memorials & photos. Wayne Webb had recently gone out there & took all the headstone photos also. Some that were a bit clearer I posted & sent you an edit. Those stones that appear to have been stamped are VERY HARD to read. You did a great job transcribing those stone. And the different spelling of some of the last names will make it harder for relatives to query.
Also sent you some edits with more information than on the stones, i.e. complete dates, maiden name, family links. I appreciate your help.
Are you from Henry Co?

RE: Schimmel Family Headstones
Thanks for letting me know. I was wondering what happened so that the stone was laying on the ground. Glad it was not vandalism. I'll follow up with the cemetery. Thank you and thanks again for the photo.

thank you
Thank you so much for the photo you submitted for William Jackson Stanford! In his early days he and his wife were signing documents with this spelling of their surname: "Staniford". I have seen it several times, in their own penmanship. Genealogists, now you know he was the one who changed our family name's spelling to a more simplified form in his latter years. But look for them under "Staniford" in early census records. William's wife was Emma Daisy McClara.

Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts in the Stanford family!!
