Bio and Links
Bio Photo I wrote the following few paragraphs when I first started researching my tree. They are as true today as they were back then. However, If there's one thing that has shown to be more important than anything else it's teamwork!! No one person can document all the information that needs to be made public. That's why the edit tab at the top of your profile page is so important. Please give a look at that list of entries as often as possible. As you process the entries, visiting the memorial pages and comparing them to your own work is crucial and informative. You'll find family members that you were never able to find before, because now,they've been linked. Genealogy is not fiction, its facts. Facts about every person listed. Check it out, you never know what may have been added since your last visit.

As far as genealogy is concerned, I guess I'm a "newbie" started in 2005. My mother died in April, my step father died in July, and my sister died in October all in 2005. It finally dawned on me that all my history was gone. I've found some great people out there willing to help me to put my "tree" together. I want to give back as much as I've gotten. I take pictures of headstones in cemeteries that I visit and intend to do more. I want to share those photos with anyone who wants to use them.

If I've input some of your family and they are not relatives of mine, I'll gladly transfer them to you. Please use the edit tab on the memorial page to make your suggestions and add your links. The common courtesy of asking for changes and links instead of demanding is appreciated.

I can't stress enough the importance of the edits tab. The edit tab contains a list of corrections or additions that someone else has found for established memorials. Please look at this tab and process the ones listed for you. This is one of best "team" projects for genealogy. Let's all contribute the little pieces of information that everyone else may not have. IT'S ALL IMPORTANT.

James Robert Moser
I am researching the Moser family from Pickens SC when I came upon this picture. I was wondering if anyone knows if this is Henrietta Moser's brother. Their father is James P and Mary Moser. My Great Grandmother is Florrie aka Florence Henrietta Reeves and her mom was Winifred Henrietta Moser Reeves.
Any help would be appreciated. I know they were from upstate SC and moved to Athens GA area.

RE: McCauslands in Indian Territory
Oh Dana, is my face red! I may have seen your flowers left on F.A.G. graves here in Oklahoma, but I do not personally manage any McCausland memorials. I should have checked before first contacting you. Sorry to be confusing!

McCauslands in Indian Territory
Good morning, Dana! I'm updating my research on my Ackleys who married some McCauslands in Mayes County, Oklahoma 110 years ago. I see you've put flowers on several of their graves. I'm only very distantly related via marriage and would be happy to transfer should they be closer "kin" to you.

Hi Dana,

Thanks for adding the bio & linking her to her father. Yes, I am related. She was the grand niece of my ancestor, Matilda Nelson McGlathery. I have located 3 of her 5 children but haven't found Seny Victoria who died in 1938 Tuscaloosa Co AL or William M who was born in Dec 1898.

Best regards,

Cowart Data Base
Hi! We are not connected to Mr. Cowart's data base whatsoever. We have no contact point for you to write or call.

Did not even know the site had been zapped. We have used it occasionally. Some genealogists have written in the past stating how much full of errors the data was, but I found it better than nothing, and a starting point to find parents/spouses/children.

The data base I find is more accurate is:
and None of the data bases are perfect--but here again, one can combine the "best" data from all the data bases to come up with some pretty accurate info.

Thanks for writing. If I hear what happened to Cowart, will let you know.

I was wondering if you are related my great-great grandfather was Davis Stafford Meek who married Elizabeth Moore, His family was from Johnson County, however thats not true since the county wasn't formed until after 1900.
Thanks and Have A great Day

Sorry don't know why I didn't think of that. Thank you so much. I want so much to find out who Ida's father is. It is frustrating.
