Bio and Links
Bio Photo Family surnames that interest me on my mother's side: EASTMAN, DOUGLASS and CUMMINGS from the New Hampshire, Massachusetts and Maine areas. One moved to Kansas. Also, from my mother's side, DURHAM, from Tennessee. From my mother's father's side, WILKERSON, from Illinois. A lot of the WILKERSONs moved to Indiana and that's where my mother's family lived.

Family surnames that interest me on my father's side: OAKES (from ??? - I have no idea), SIMPKINS and RICHARDSON from Georgia.

Of course, there are lots of other names associated with these. I'm trying to piece together more information about the Oakes and Simpkins names, for sure, because my father did not talk much about his childhood.

I'm not really sure why people list names here because I'm not looking for someone to search FOR me. But I'm adding it since it seems to be the tradition.

I have taken photos of headstones that are not in my family. If a memorial I have made is for someone in YOUR family, I will gladly transfer the memorial to you.

Do you know if this Mary Stanley is the daughter of Jesse Stanley & Mariah Stanley? Apparently she married a SIMPKINS and I'd like to know if it's the same one.

Let's try this again
Almeda Colby Eastman's stone reads 14 Dec 1864 - not 11 Dec 1861. You can read the 4s when you enlarge the picture.

I didn't get right on this because I am on vacation and am not checking my messages every day. I have transferred Connie to you.

RE: Minnie Valentine Frasurr
Minnie was my 4th cousin once removed. So related, but not closely.

RE: another Oakes name
I wonder if he is connected to the Tacoma Oakes which I understand there were quite a few. I am not related to the ones in Tacoma either.
