Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in Memphis, TN, raised in Jackson, MS, and moved to Dallas in 1967.

I am addicted to FindaGrave and genealogy research in general. I have had the good fortune to connect with a number of cousins through this website.

Most of my research is tracing family members in Mississippi.... Panola, Quitman, Calhoun, Yalobusha and Hinds Counties.

My Family Names: White, Vanderberg, Vanderburg, Potts, Jenkins and Hupperich.

My wife's family: Pitt, Sapp, and Newcomer's, mostly from Oklahoma, and Baldridge from Tennessee.

"I have never met a cemetery I did not like", and
"I can not go to a cemetery and take just one picture".

I am also a volunteer photo taker at Grove Hill, Restland and Oakland Cemeteries in Dallas.

If I have added one of your family members or family friends, let me know and I will transfer them to you.


A number of the pictures added and memorials created in the Memphis and North Mississippi area have been contributed by my cousin, Becky Vanderburg Abbott.


Any photograph I have added to any memorial may be used by the general public, without credit to me.

RE: Wright Family at Forest Hills-Midtown
Yes, everyone I try to connect is a family member, but they may be 2-3 cousins.

Been researching for 20 years but now I have been on a tear to connect everyone in my database who is on findagrave. I feel that findagrave is surpassing all other gen. sites because we can add so many other identifiers while joining family members together. It is also so much easier for novices to use & free!

Thank you for all of your submissions, Brenda in Memphis
