Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in Ardmore, Carter Co, OK where my husband jokingly says that I thought Noah's Ark had landed.

For thirty plus years I have been involved in genealogy. When my mother died, she left some notes about a few ancestors she had uncovered and hoped I would continue her research. That was the hook-in-the-jaw that changed my life. I only regret that I have missed out on so many years that I could have used. Alas, all those family stories that went in one ear and out the other, and all those family members who took so much information to the grave with them.

I am, however, thankful for the tools that are now available and for FindAGrave, a platform that I have spent many hours gaining from and contributing to.

If I have created a memorial for a member of your family, who isn't related to me, and you can add a biographical sketch I will be glad to transfer it to you. Many have received a transfer/transfers & have never added anything. This isn't fair to kin who may come along later who can do so. I will not transfer in mass numbers.

An exception to the above are my Bell, Dodson, Cagle, & Love ancestors & kin, most of whom have numerous descendants. Much of the information contained in their memorials is the result of many years of tedious research, and as new information comes to light, I would like to be able to make those changes. For these memorials please follow FindAGrave guidelines for transfers.

Instructions for ALL REQUESTS for corrections, additional information, or transfers:

1. Go to the memorial page, which has an "Edit" tab located on the upper right side of the memorial.
2. Click on the "Edit" tab, then click on the Suggest a correction or provide additional information link, which opens a message page.
3. Type in your message.

Making a request this way insures that no mistakes are made, because it takes me to the exact memorial.

Thanks for your understanding.

RE: Ezekiel Williams
Ella married Robert "Bob" Turpin December30, 1883 in Sherman, Grayson Co., Texas.
They had three children.
Daughter Willie Mae Turpin b Sept 1884 married Barlow Burton
Daughter Bobie Turpin d 1886 (pretty sure it was born and died right away)
One more baby that died and wasn't named.

Apparently they divorced because I found Robert Bob Turpin in census records married again with other children.

Ella and Ezekiel married in 1888 Sherman, Grayson Co., Texas.

Ella's Parents were:
Williamson Nevil Gee b. @1819 Lunenburg Co., Virginia d. After 1867 Grayson Co., Texas

Angus (Agnes) L. Johnson b. @1842 Kentucky (yes big age gap that carried through on census records I found)
All I can find are two daughters
Veal G Gee b. May 13, 1863 TX d. Nov 25. 1944 buried McMillan Cemetery, Marshall Co. OK. Married Thomas T Byrne.

Ella Priscilla Gee b Oct 22, 1867 Grayson Co., TX d. April 19, 1952 Hamlin, Jones Co., Texas
Married Ezekiel Williams Feb 2, 1888 Grayson Co., TX

I don't have an account with Ancestry but did use them for a couple of months. What is sad is that people used my pictures and they are not always listed with correct info or people. When I did use that site it said you were not to use anyone else's pictures without permission and someone recently told me they can click on a link and add any of the pictures from findagrave. I was told Billion Graves has it set up where you can't take others pictures. I don't care about the headstone pictures, but family pictures used incorrectly is another matter. When this site started it was different, then it was sold to Ancestry and the rules changed. Good luck with your searches and have a good week!

RE: Clarence
There are lots of William Brown's in my family tree. I'll look for Charity and see if I have one listed.

I transferred him to you. My maiden name is Brown but most of my ancestor's started out in Pennsylvania and moved to Ohio, Illinois, Iowa, Missouri and Washington. Do you have any Brown's from those areas?

Hi Virginia, we surely must have some relationship with all of the familial names you have. I descend from Alonzo Adolphus Jordan and Mary Amanda Welch, through their daughter Irene H Jordan m. George H Whitaker, and their daughter Mary Sue Whitaker Prewitt.

What is your relationship to the family? Would love to compare notes. I have quite a bit on the Jordan family and have added several pictures.

RE: Robert Franklin
Thanks so much for the transfer. Did 3 days of research for Cornell on Bob's ancestors and added and connected them for her, thanks to other find a grave volunteers like you. I will get it all sent to her tomorrow. Funny how the old saying" What goes around comes around." really happens. Years ago when I was first doing research Cornell sent me two books on our family she had purchased and wanted to share them with me. I will always be grateful as she was there to get me started in this great hobby. Thanks again for the transfers from all of my Mom's family.
