For changes to any memorial I manage, please use the Suggest A Correction "SAC" feature on the memorial under the Edit tab on the top right hand side of each memorial. Messages for changes left here may not be made.

Please do not copy and post personal photographs of my family members to other websites such as without my permission. I do not have a problem with reusing my tombstone photos for your personal use, but credit would be a good idea as they are my photos. Also note that I did not take all of the photos on my memorials and can't give permission for the ones I didn't take to be reused.

My husband and I started trying to trace our roots back to Europe about 30 years ago. We were fortunate that several of our ancestors kept some records and created family books which were the start of our adventures. We were surprised to learn that both of our families had branches in this country since the 1700's. Most of the entries I've made have some connection to these families, although remote at times (cousins many times removed). A few are just made from photos taken as we walked a cemetery looking for our family members.

I do not intentionally link to burial unknowns for purposes of creating family trees. Please do not request such links. I will delete them if found.

Can you tell me if Windland Cem is known by any other name? Maybe Smith Cem or Old Hoffee Cem. Is Windland located way back behind a cattle pasture? I was down there any years ago looking.

Hello Airrow
I have a question about Dr Robert Frazier and his family, in particular his daughter Grace (Grace Frazier Brady). I don't know if this family is a close relation to you or not, so you may not know anything about them, but I thought I would try. I have acquired a small book of poetry written by Grace. According to census records, Grace did not have any children who survived. I am wondering if there are any living descendants of her siblings. You see, I have a website where I feature the poetry of primarily self-published women poets of the past, and I would like to make a page for Grace Frazier Brady. If there are any surviving family members I would, of course, like to contact them and get permission to post samples of her poems on my website. The book was published in 1920 and is entitled Picture Poems. My website is called The Obscure Poetess and can be found at

Sparling Thornton - Mt. Nebo
This request has come up three times during the last five years. I was at Mt. Nebo yesterday, Sparling still does not have a monument - only his son Richard. Lawrence Co. Archives had record of his burial. Sorry.

RE: McCullough
Thank you. Degraphney and Mary actually had 11 children.
Zachary T 04/25/1847 (possibly deceased before censes)
William M 12/10/1848 (guess the W could have been viewed as an M on family records)
Robert S 02/08/1851
Henry S 05/06/1854
Susan A 02/06/1855
John S 03/05/1857
Hugh C 02/08/1859 (my great-great grandfather)
Mary J 11/08/1863
Lucy L 12/18/1865
Degraphney 10/05/1867 (I would not have thought to look for D Graphney, I also submitted a correction to the birth date, it was listed as 10/02/1866 even though the headstone read 1867)
Joseph O 10/09/1870

I am new to this as you can tell and find this quite interesting and a bit fun. The cousins had a reunion several years back and compiled a book of family history with dates of birth but no dates of death. I have noticed that a lot of the children and siblings are missing and I am trying to get those added but there is not an easy process like for the parents or spouse.

Found on my father's side back to the 1600s.

thank you again. Martha L Walker
