Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am researching my family surnames on my Father's side (Galloway/Carter/Cook/Oliver (SC/AL/GA) and my Mother's side, Traffenstead/Traffanstedt/Garrett, Freeman (AL/GA/TN/SC) Hartsfield/Cross/Wilson/Moore (AR). I've been interested in geneaology since August 2006 when I started looking for my Mother's biological family whom I found within 2 weeks. From my Mother's side, I am Catawba Indian "People Of The River", German, and British. I'm still working on my Father's side.

Please take a moment and visit my family. Thank you so much.

This dear sweet woman has been part of our family since I was a little girl. She will never be forgotten. Love you Ms. Frances.

If I have offended anyone, please let me know and I will remove the memorial of your loved one. If you aren't a part of Find A Grave, you can still contact me through the edit tab of the memorial. I don't mean to offend anyone. All memorials are created out of respect. The purpose of me adding names is because I believe that people should never be forgotten, and also I like to help people who are searching for their ancestors. I am so thankful for Find A Grave because not only have I found many of my ancestors, I have found many related family members alive.

I will be happy to transfer memorials that are a part of your family with the exception of the ones of my family within Find A Grave's 4 generations guidelines. Any requests outside the 4 generations will be considered on an individual basis. You MUST state the relationship with your ID number. All RUDE requests will be ignored!

Duplicates - These are errors, and not created on purpose. I search before I create a memorial and after every time. Please bring any errors or duplicates to my attention so I can correct them. If I have created a memorial and you create a duplicate, do not send me a message that the one I created is a dupe and for me to delete. I will not delete any memorials if you created a dupe. Don't create a dupe memorial just because you're related. If you are family, kindly ask for a transfer or you can add photos and send me information to be added and I'll be glad to add it. If you are within the 4 generations, please ask for a transfer. Please read the FAQ's for this site on creating memorials.

Feel free to use my photos 📷 as long as you give me credit and do not make any money off them.

Hi, Dana.

I was searching the Internet learning about my paternal great grandparents (Fletcher and Minnie Garrett) and came across your name on a page for Lila Ferguson who was my grandfathers (Jim Garrett) sister. I had not heard the story of Lila having a daughter and was touched. So I guess that means we are distantly related and I'd love to hear from you and learn more from you!

My mom is Jennifer Mae Garrett Hart and she died in 2001 and I see that you maintain the page on this site for her. Thank you.

Thanks Dana. Hope your surgery goes well and I will appreciate that photo whenever you get the time and are recovered. It's pretty hot to go hunting for graves right now! Judy

T Todd has a photo of Tom Burton. Can you fix that? I am hoping you might have the right photo for Talmadge Todd who was the husband of Vera Harper Todd, but this isn't it. This is in the Alexander City Cemetery. Your help appreciated!

Name typo
Just wanted to let you know you have a typo on the name in Find A Grave Memorial# 88632602. It says "Gavin Albert Culp" but the headstone (and other sources) says "Garvin Albert Culp".

I hope I have previously answered you!? If not, No I don't know anything about Litha S. White's previous husband. She & Elver Champion didn't marry until 1943, have you tried finding her in the 1930 or 1940 census? Suspect she probably lived close by in Tallapoosa Co., AL. Sorry, If I haven't answered before or maybe you have double info now. Have fun with genie. Bobbye Varner

RE: Litha S White Champion
Hello, No, I know nothing about her 1st husband, Alvie White? Noticed you have put an Alvie White on Find A Grave, is he the one? If you find out, please let me know as well if you find her maiden name. Would appreciate being informed. Sorry, I can't help you with other info. Bobbye Varner
