Bio and Links

I want to thank each of you for your thoughts
and prayers. Your kindness means a great deal
to me and my family.

I'm retired, doing genealogy work & enjoy helping on the website. I'm a proud Okie., born & raised in Oklahoma. I am of Cherokee decent, as my Great Grandfather and Grandfather signed the Dawes Rolls. I have been doing my 'Long' family tree for years and have found so many cousins online.
It has certainly been interesting and most enjoyable meeting and hearing from new distant family members. I have learned so much about
my ancestors and their lives down through the generations, I hope to perserve their memories for future generations to come. This is why I like working on the findagrave site, hoping to help others looking for their loved ones. I have found others to be very helpful and kind to share information.
My husband and I are enjoying our church, family & early retirement.
Aren't the Grands Fun?!!!
We have two beautiful granddaughters.
Madison, 10 and Gracie 8........

If I have made any mistakes, or
you would like to have your family
info added to their page, please contact
me and I'll be happy to add it for you.

Thank you...Phyllis

I want to also say thank you for taking the time to visit my loved ones memorial pages and leaving a note for them. God Bless You

RE: Checking w/you
Hello Phyllis & Don, it has been a long long time. I finally had a day for myself that I was able to do a little fowering, after 5 months. You know the old adage [everything happens in 3's] - I guess it changed for me that [everything happens in 4's]. I kept saying "this too shall pass" and it did.

Been going to Eye Doctor most all of April & oh, how tiresome.

So pleased to hear that Don has been completely cleared of his health problems & June will be here soon, for his check-up, which will also come out with wonderful results.

Take care my friend & hoping this message finds you doing fantastic. Probably won't be flowering much, maybe once a week, if lucky.

Thanks so much for your messages & will talk attcha later.

Bye for now, Ruth

Margaret Archdale
I am not a genealogist, but I've been trying to solve a puzzle for my family, by identifying Margaret, mother of Archdale (1625) in Virginia, and wife of John Combs (Jamestown John) as she was deceased (1632) by the time Archdale was born in 1641. Note: It is said that she married John of London in 1639 (England). The problem is that we can't prove that Archdale (1641) ever came to Virginia, but that an Archdale was in Virginia. John (1662) was the son of Archdale.

RE: Dawes Cemetery
I Photographed the entire cemetery and posted all of it on findagrave I don't recall anyone by that name but she may have an unmarked grave or it may be marked by a field stone with no lettering. Sorry I can't be of more assistance.

RE: Chelsea, Ok. cemetery
The Joseph in the photo, as I understand it, was a brother to Ephraim Moore Berry. Joseph married Jane Lockenour, daughter of Amos & Elizabeth Sides Lockenour. Ephraim married Elizabeth's sister Elimina Sides. Ephraim & Elimina are buried in the Louisville, Ky., Cave Hill Cemetery.
I am descended through both the Sides & Lockenour Families, but other than sharing
common ancestors I am not directly related to the Berry line. If Joseph M. was married to anyone else I am not aware of it.
The information I have said that Joseph M. came to Indiana with his wife Jane to help attend to Jane's mother Elizabeth, & died there unexpectedly, & the body was shipped back to Oklahoma, where they lived, for burial..

RE: Graves and research
I live in south FL and only go to TN every few years or so. Maybe ask user Robin Lee, she is a friend of mine. She lives up there and does a lot photographing of the cemeteries in Blount County.

RE: Pleasant Lafayette Atchley
I am in Va, but I did walk around the new Providence Church Cemetery when I was there probably 15 years ago and could not find a marked grave for Ben and Martha. My father who is now deceased, talked about the moving of the Graves from the time when he was a teenager living in the area. From his description of the effort, it is not surprising graves were lost in the process.

RE: permission
It's certainly OK with me, but it is not really my picture. Copyright on an 1892 picture has expired. The Newspaper might claim some right to their reproduction, but I am not a copyright expert.

RE: Pleasant Lafayette Atchley
I believe this is the Flat Creek home of Benjamin and Martha Atchley. The location is probably under the Lake. The newspaper clipping is from my grandmother's personal scrap book. I only had the clipping and it was not in very good shape. I am almost certain it is from the Sevierville Newspaper. I believe P.L and Anna lived in this home from 1875 up until at least after this 1892 photo was taken. P.L. and Anna later moved to the frame home (now demolished) that stood behind the Sexy Stuf store and Freedom Fireworks on Catlettsburg Road, just north of Douglas Dam Road. P.L and Anna were in the Catlettsburg home by 1903.

Charity Fowler Rainwater
Hello Phyllis,

I hope your husband is doing better!

I have questions in my mind regarding Charity's relation to James Rainwater, who supposedly died in "1805". It would have been impossible with this death date for him to have served in the "War of 1812", or to have been the father of Anne Wright, who was born in "1824". Could you possibly have him confused with a latter "James Rainwater"?

I, too, am of the Rainwater descent thru my maternal grandmother, and just trying to get my records correct. Let me know your thoughts on this at your convenience.
