Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been researching the families of my wife and mine for about thirty years. It is great to learn about family and their migrations.
If anyone finds mistakes on my entries or would like to add information, please contact me. I have been going to cemeteries in my area and have been entering photos and info so many of my entries aren't family. It is always great to meet new family and friends.

Genealogy Research
My family
Barton/Lambert/Goforth/Schooley/White/Miller/ Dunn/Massie/Eggers research is in IL, IA, IN, KY, ENG, MA, DE.

My wife's family
Gibson/McCandless/Turner/Dunn/Ramsey/Brammer/McCully/Wilson genealogy research is in MO, TN, PA, IN.

My wife and I have four children and nine grandchildren which makes our life very enjoyable and now we are blessed with seven great grandchildren. Besides searching for our family, I enjoy wood carving.
The Good Lord has blessed me in many ways!

Remember, "No one is truly gone, until they are forgotten".

With the memorials I have set up, if you find any mistakes, please let me know so I can get them corrected. I'm not perfect, but I strive for perfection in all that I try to do on Find A Grave.

When requesting links, please give me the name of the person plus the ID number. This insures I link the correct person, mother, father or spouse.

On ADDITIONS, CORRECTIONS, LINKS or TRANSFERS for any Memorial, PLEASE USE THE EDIT BUTTON and Suggest A Correction or provide additional information. Any of the above posted on my message board will be ignored and deleted.

IN OTHER WORDS, SEND A SAC! Please, no bulk transfer requests!

I will be happy to transfer to a relative if it is within the Find A Grave guidelines, otherwise it will be at my discretion. Please state your relationship of the memorial you want transferred. Just saying they are family is not acceptable.

We want the memorials of those we loved to be as nice as possible.

Thank you!

RE: Merle R
That makes sense. Thanks for checking on it. It takes all of us "detectives" to try to keep this family information logical for families looking for genealogy info. It just caught my eye, and I'm glad we looked into it. Thanks for all you do to promote family genealogies!

Hello Mr. Barton!

I just left a lengthy note for Mr. Art Dowell on how to EDIT TAB a relationsonship link request for children to their parents.

This way, he can request an EDIT TAB link for Ralph Hobson Graham to his parents Minnie and Asher.

Hopefully, this will also help him know how to do various other links, for future memorial updates, via the EDIT TAB system.

I wanted you to know I appreciate your findAgrave work and how you've kindly assisted many researching their families history.

Have a wonderful day, sir.

I am sorry I didn't separate the siblings from the sister:
Hattie A Mayo, Sister: Memorial# 33616590 is a sister, not a sibling.
