Bio and Links
Bio Photo Within a few minutes of a friend telling me about Find A Grave, I found my great-great grandparents' gravestone in Hopedale Cemetery, Christian Co., MO. They were Gabriel and Talitha Reynolds McMullin. First I let out a shriek! then I sat looking at the picture, tears falling down my face. I never thought I'd see their final resting place. I've added old photos of their family to their pages. I'm still hoping to make contact with someone there. (Success!) Thank you to their visitors for honoring them with flowers and tokens, they are appreciated.

Since that day I have found other ancestors on Find A Grave. A special thank you to M. Correll and "jtf" for so many of the Wayne County, KY memorials and photos. The photos taken by Ronald Bicknese in Bills Creek Cemetery are also very special treasures. I will always be thankful for his effort to find my York 4th great-grandparents in that remote cemetery. Thanks to Robie Prater for his many photos and book HACKWORTHS AND RELATED FAMILIES in Floyd County KY.

Sincere appreciation to God's Special Angel for sponsoring our Mommaw and Poppaw Estes. They were sweet, gentle people. Thanks to all who have left flowers and tokens for them, and for other family and friends.

My friend's missing father:
Sgt. J.W. Davis. When his final resting place is found an 'in memory' marker will be placed with his parents in Lucedale, MS. Flowers and tokens will be appreciated.

Many thanks, for Linda's daddy.

RE: Eastern KY
A distant cousin married Carroll Adams. #78557438. My dad was from Magoffin County. I have ancestors all over eastern KY. g-grandparents and grandparents had a bus load of children. Most of them from Magoffin, but Rowan, Johnson, Pike and Madison. I think 75% of Magoffin are Howard's.
I have sent two requests to F.A.G. to delete the memorial in the wrong cemetery. Nothing seems to work.Creator was contacted too, but just ignored the message. I'll try another method soon. Anyway, thanks again. Barbara

Thank you for leaving a token on my ancestor's Memorial. It is much appreciated. Did you see his grave by any chance? Another person has him in the wrong cemetery.

Charles R. Hartz
#72912692 ~ has 2 different death dates on his profile. At the top under birth and death, the death date shows as June 20, 1925. At the bottom of his biography, there is a death date of 20 March 1925.
Which is correct? I am putting a profile on WikiTree, since Winklemans are a part of my "extended family."

I love the detail you have put into all of these profiles! You rock!!
