|Bio and Links|
|I've been doing genealogy research for about 35 years. I started before you could turn on your computer and do the research from your home. While I enjoy the convenience of using the internet to do research, I still enjoy the more "hands on" approach. I've taken many trips over the years to courthouses, cemeteries, to visit elderly family members, etc. along the way. For me, the online research just doesn't bring the same satisfaction that I feel when I am able to go dig up the information in person. I've enjoyed meeting cousins that I never knew I had, and I've also been able to reconnect with family members that I've lost contact with over the years. This has become a great hobby, and I've enjoyed learning all the interesting stories, both good and bad, about my family history. I hope I have and am playing some small part in getting younger members of my family interested in what came before them. |
I'm happy to share whatever information that I have. Feel free to use the grave photos that I've added without contacting me. I've uploaded them for your use. All I ask is that you list where you got the photo along with the cemetery, city, state so others can find the grave if they wish to visit it. I'm happy to take photos of graves in my area for other people and upload them to memorials here. I think of it as a kind of payment for those who have been kind enough to get photos for me. I try to take the kind of photos that I would like to have....well focused, as readable as possible, and a good angle.
As for the more PERSONAL PHOTOS, I'd like to be contacted before anyone adds them to another website or uses them in any other way. I love sharing, but I also like to know where and how my research and/or personal family photos will be used, and I like to know that credit is given to the proper individual(s) if my research or photos are used by others. I feel it's extremely important that future researchers be able to get to original sources of pictures and other documents the same way that I and others did. It's very frustrating to see a supposed photo of someone on the internet, but the person posting the photo doesn't have the original, can't tell you where the original is or any other information about it, and doesn't even know for sure that the photo is correctly identified.
I'm happy to transfer any memorials that don't belong to my family. Just let me know if I am managing a memorial which is of your family member, and I'll get it transferred to you ASAP if I'm not related. I like to see memorials in the hands of family or friends who can add to the memorial and make it the best it can be.

The franklin news paper you have posted must be for W.J Ringer Jr The William Jackson Ringer in asbury cemetery is my great great grandfather born in Sc in 1820. Someone shot him in the back while he was sitting on a log out by the barn on the Ringer Plantation they robbed him he had just sold a crop
One story told was he was robbed on his way back from a poker game and he had a bag of gold this story is not true
|Daniel Moran||INFANT HOLCOMB|
Sabrina: Could you confirm for me what this baby's mother's name may have been? I just made a trip into this cemetery for the first time; I only came across one Holcomb. There are graves on the right and left of this woman that are unmarked crosses (normally lost babies). Without these graves being marked with a name, I can't be one hundred percent certain. I took pictures of both graves right and left. Interesting these graves are encased in cement.
|Andrew Holstein||Greenwood Cemetary Request|
Please find out as much info as you can about the location of the stone. I was there today 12/23/2016 and it was tough to find stones. There wasn't an office or anyone on the property and for some reason all of the street/lot signs were painted over in black. I will try again another time.
I would like to contact you since I was a Combs before marriage and have been researching this family from Wilkes Co Ga for many years.
|D Jalbert||RE: Jesse Clay|
Hi Sabrina, Now I think this Jesse Clay was born in GA. Their is another Jesse that I came across that may have been his grand-father who was from VA. Sorry for the confusion.

|J Davis||RE: Beulah Combs Spacht|
Millie Griffin is my Great Aunt via her father William Henry Griffin, my Great Grandfather, and his first marriage to George Ann Wilhoit. My lineage is via his 2nd marriage with Rebecca Jane Cornwell, so Beulah Beryl Combs is my 1st cousin 1 x removed.
I never personally knew any of theses folks as I was born in 1951 and only heard a few stories about this family when I was very young. I started my research 5 years ago on Ancestry.com and gathered info from other folks along the way and posted photos from my Grandmother's limited collection.
If you look at William Henry Griffin here in Find A Grave, you will see a photo of him and who I believe to be Beulah Combs Spacht sitting next to him. Can you confirm if that is her?
Notes on the back of the photo indicate it was sent to my Grandmother Minnie May Griffin by George Ann (her half sister) and says "Dad with Beulah".
Millie and her half sister Peachie Griffin ran away to Crandon, Forest, Wisconsin when the family left Kentucky around 1904. Millie married Ephraim 16 Jan 1904 and Peachie married Mack Lewis 20 Feb 1904 and he was recorded as widowed in the June 1905 census and later married another.
I don't know if Peachie died or if they were divorced, but I can't find any record of her since that time. I'm assuming Peachie was her true legal name and I don't find her moving to Oregon with Millie and Bum. Do you by chance have any info on her life?
As for Ephraim, besides the story of his involvement in a shooting in W. Virginia before going to Wisconsin, I only know that he spent his life working in saw mills as a laborer and he worked at R&W Lumber Mill in 1940.
One last bit of info; I do have some photos of my Grandmother at the grave site of her father and I believe one other woman in the photo is Millie. I'd be happy to share that photo with you to confirm if it is Millie and her daughter Grace.
My prefered email is firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have access to Ancestry, my family tree is "The Davis Family Tree-3" and these photos are in the profile for Minnie May Griffin.
I must apologize for having more questions than answers for you, but I too would like to fill some gaps in the history of our family!
God bless you,
