Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am retired from breeding and showing Balinese cats. I am a Christian - Republican - live in Georgia with husband, two cats, two sheltie dogs, and have two grown sons, and two grandchildren.

My most enjoyable interest are: Animals, Genealogy, Religion, Ancient History, Nature, Music (classical, Folk, 50's, Religious), Gardening, Walking, Cooking, and being with my family, pets, and friends.

I love looking up people I never knew and reading about their lives. When I am called to Heaven, I am sure it will take me hundreds of years to meet all of the wonderful people listed on FAG. Thank goodness Heaven is eternal!

FAG is such a wonderful and everlasting way to pay tribute to our families, friends, celebrities, and those we never meet in life.

I want to thank each and every one who have left flowers and tributes to my loved ones. It is deeply and sincerely appreciated. My heart is touched and I love you all.

Hi, I'm Renee Gibson. I came across your memorial for Gerret Van Swearingen. According to what I've found, he is my 11x great grandfather. I'm curious if you have any additional information about him or Barbarah deBarrette or could point me in the direction of where I might find additional information about them. Thank you!

RE: Sarah Ellen Bullard
After I mentioned that about Sarah Ellen I read a couple of articles and she was called "Sallie", I never knew that, Church records may be the way to go with the burial for Ella, or old newspaper articles, I mentioned I found an article dated 1883 for Dooly News, it was mentioned on the GaGenweb for a book named named Butts, Dooly and Pulaski News. Does the library have any old newspapers for Dooly? If at the city cem they may have records at the clerks office. The Washington Library in Macon has a treasure trove!! The Middle Georgia Historical Society? Just some ideas I'm sure you have probably hit them all! If I run across anything I'll let you know! Cat

RE: Sarah Ellen Bullard
Were you able to access any family bibles? This may be the only way we will find her if she is unmarked. Thank you for making Sarah's name change :), Cat

Hannah V. McDowell Rupert
The "V" in her maiden name is referenced in several U.S. Census records. I have never come across what it stands for, however, my educated guess is: Viola
Like the name "Hannah", the name "Viola" was quite popular in the early to mid-1800's, especially among the early settlers of Pennsylvania, a good number of whom emigrated from various parts of Germany.
But, the "V" could also represent her mother's maiden name, which was also a common practice in those days, particularly among Mennonite families.
However, I believe Hannah has carried the secret of the "V" to her grave!
Best regards,

Just sent you links for Leah, Philip, and Adam Rupert.
Tried to link Adam's wife, Hannah, but it said you already had a link request from "DJ" so it wouldn't let me do it.
Thanks for all of your help!

Please keep my family in your prayers following the loss of my uncle Franklin Rogers, who passed away yesterday from cancer. If you have time I would appreciate virtual flowers for his Find A Grave memorial 128627148. I am very blessed to have my friends on this site. Thank you,
