***These are my family surnames in order of significance. If any of them pertain to your own history then I'd definitely love to hear from you. Leave me a message and I'll promptly respond.***
Saying I love doing family research is probably an understatement. Borderline obsessed probably better describes it. I suppose genealogy suits me because of my huge interest in American History. Whether I'm watching the History Channel or just casually conversing about some obscure fact involving the red, white and blue, I'm at one of my happiest of times.
WHY I LOVE GENEALOGY
I'm a proud American. Most of my ancestors arrived here long before our great forefathers even envisioned the Declaration of Independence in 1776. Many of them also served our nation honorably in it's most darkest hours on the battlefield. From the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812, The Civil War, WWI, WWII, Vietnam to the Global War on Terrorism, you can find a relative of mine. My gratitude and pride for them will be with me until my last day.
MY GOAL here on findagrave.com is to:
PRESERVE & HONOR my own ancestors and as many others as possible along the way.
Please feel free to CONTACT ME on here at any time. I love interacting with others. I don't understand why some people IGNORE you. I always respond to messages.
If any of my memorial's need: LINKS, UPDATES, IMPROVEMENTS...PLEADE SEND THEM TO ME. I definitely want to know. ***As a genealogy geek myself, I'll probably check the accuracy of some suggestions, so please give them to me straight.
Like so many on here, I AM NOT a GRAVE COLLECTOR, I WILL TRANSFER MANY MEMORIALS. I'm not going for any kind of record on here. If I have a memorial of your relative (OTHER THAN MY OWN), I will gladly give it to you. Shame on the people who don't.
I was born in St. Louis County, Missouri in 1978 and raised close to the same area. Like so many of the people living near the Gateway to the West, our friends, family and the St. Louis Cardinal's Baseball has always been a way of life.
Proudly, both of my parents have a southern heritage. Their history and family folklore's are rich. My dad's grandfather John Henry Day was born in Tennessee in 1870. As a young farmer and in hope of improving his life, settled in southeast Missouri around the Twentieth century, making me a fourth generation Missourian. One of my paternal great-great-grandmothers, Mary E. Black was said to be a Native American Witch , living in the bootheel of Missouri (you gotta love family stories). Mary's legend is still talked about amongst numerous descendants of hers.
My mother and her large family of 11 siblings come from Northeast Alabama. All 4 of her grandparents, Syrous and Rosie (Helton) Guffey and James "Pomp" and
Joanna (Willmon) Guthrie, can easily prove their roots trace back there as far as Two Centuries ago. Like my great-great-great-great-grandparents Ephraim Monroe and Sarah (Underwood) Guffey. Ephraim Guffey, a veteran of the War of 1812, was believed to be the first Guffey to settle in this part of Alabama. His son, Ephraim Underwood Guffey and grandson, Ephraim Berry Guffey are buried nearby in Guffey Cemetery.

|Bill carter||Thomas Jefferson Carter mem # 125562233|
Thomas J. Carter is my 2nd Cousin 2x removed.
He was born near Keonville in Union County, Mississippi. His Parents were Taylor Monroe Carter and Eliza (Wildmon) Carter. When Eliza Died Thomas was a small child. The family broke up and Thomas was raised by a Williams family. He left the area sometime after WW1 and no one heard fro m him for years until Owen Carter found him by accident in Missouri before Cordelia (his sister) died. He wouldn't come back to Mississippi and didn't come when Hugh Carter died!
I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW IF HE HAD A WIFE AND FAMILY.
William T. "Bill" Carter
