Bio and Links
Bio Photo The photo image is of my paternal grandmother whose facial features came down to me through my father. I have to think some unfortunate personality traits came that way also, as I find some in me that my father also shared. The sharing of her genetically transmitted intelligence I gladly own, however. Thank you, Grandma.

Genealogy, learning about my family and my family tree, has become a passion for me.

I have Littrells, Searses, and Silverses from my father's side who lived in Harlan, Whitley, Pulaski, and other nearby Kentucky counties. Some farmed in Oklahoma and mined coal in Harlan, Kentucky; Fork Ridge, Tennessee; McAlester, Oklahoma, and in the Shirley Hill mine in Sullivan County, Indiana.

On my mother's side Prevetts and Blackwells came from North Carolina, first settling in Randolph and Lawrence Counties in northeast Arkansas, with some moving on to Okfuskee, Okmulgee, and other exotic-sounding areas in Oklahoma, where they thrived and multiplied.

There are Morrises and Whites who lived in Laclede County, Missouri, moving into Randolph County, Arkansas. They had previously resided in Texas, Iowa, and Tennessee.

My relatives include Shipps and Drivers, some of whom lived for a short while in the Choctaw Nation in Oklahoma, where my paternal grandmother was born.

Their stories fascinate me.

I love exchanging information with family and anyone else who has an interest in learning more about their ancestors.

The information provided on the Find A Grave site continues to be very helpful to me. I like being able to track down where family members are buried, putting a finishing touch to their stories. I enjoy writing about as many of their lives as I can. I am still learning more about the people who came before me.

If you want to manage a memorial I have entered, just ask. It's easiest if done through the Edit button on the memorial site. Also, please let me know of errors that need correcting or additions that need to be made. Thank you!

James Henry Amyett
James Henry Amyett is the father of James Lafayette Amyett and is related to virtually all the Amyetts whose memorials you created at Providence Cemetery in White County, AR. James was not present in the 1900 census - his widow Sophronia I. 'Frony' Singleton Amyett was in Cadron, White, AR and lived in or near Kentucky, White, AR in the 1920 census. She went to Okmulgee, Okmulgee, OK with her daughter Lorena Arabelle Amyett Ragan but was not alive in the 1930 census. Important to me because James Henry and Frony were likely the parents of my maternal grandmother, Lillie Mae Amyett (F/G Mem # 77230411). Any info on the burial sites for either will be most greatly appreciated. Contact:

William Hamilton Freeman

William Hamilton Freeman is my maternal grandfather. If you've visited his grave and have a photo of his and his wife's grave would you please post it. I noticed you posted a family photo that I posted some time ago on my family tree. Did you crop the photo I have or did you happen to have an exact copy?

Also, would like to know your connection to him and Grace. Grace was my step-grandmother.

Thanks for any help you can offer.

I gave you wrong info on his parents. Have corrected the "edit." His father was Bradford Dennis "Buddy" Payne, not what I gave you earlier. Am working on gaining access to his mother (Carrie Olive Middleton Payne). Please correct. Thanks!

Ervin G. Payne
Just sent you a correction on my cousin, Ervin. I'm looking at his funeral card and his death date was 26 Mar 1987. I don't know what his tombstone says, but according to the funeral card 26 Mar 1987 is the date.
