Bio and Links
Bio Photo This is a great site and I have found many friends, and cousins that I didn't know I had and I cherish each one.
Thank you all for the beautiful tokens on my family & friends sites. I appreciate them all.

I am looking for any Sanders contacts/family from Blount County Alabama or any of the Graves family from Blount County Alabama.

You may notice from my sponsorship that I have a very warm soft spot for all animals. I believe that our Lord gave each and every dog, cat, ferret
and your choice of pet for us all to take care of and cherish until they take the trip to to Rainbow Bridge. I asked a good friend of mine, a good ole Baptist preacher what happened when a pet passed away, where did they go. He replied "they are all waiting for us, what else would a forgiving Lord do". I cried, just remembering how may pets I have had during my lifetime and how wonderful it will be to hug them and play with them again.(thank you Alan, I needed to hear that) Of course I miss my family that have gone before me, but I know I will be with them soon and knowing all the animals I have loved will be there too just makes it that much more comfortable.

If you have time, please visit my husband,
Vincent D. Dawson,
my Mom, Billie Jo Graves and
my Dad, George W. Graves.

Thank you all for the tokens from everyone they are very much appreciated.

Thank you,

RE: Thomas Graves
I did send you a message yesterday. I don't know if you saw it or not. But something else I know about Thomas is that he lived near the Alabama line for several years near Ranburne. My grandmother was born in Bowdon, Georgia. But his father was named Augustus whose father was named John whose father was named John born in 1763 and arriving in Fayette County, Georgia around 1830. Although Thomas did not have many brothers, Augustus was the eldest son in a large family in Fayetteville.

Thomas Graves
He was my granmother's Uncle. His Dad named Augustus was killed in the Civil War and left his wife with only three children to raise. One was my great-grandmother named Roxie and her brother named Thomas. I don't know much about the other child but think his name was Judson Hubbard. Augustus was born into the Graves family in Fayette county, Georgia, the first ancestor being John Graves who was born in 1763 and he has a DAR marker on his brave. That's about all I know about Uncle Tom accept that he was married two times. I have 7 generations of relatives buried in this cemetery and I plan on being there one day myself. I think that John born in 1763 had two brothers who came with him to Fayette County and I guess it's possible that your Graves line may come from one of them. I don't know. Well take care and I hope I have help you some in your search.

Just Passing Through
Your bio. reminded me of the following poem...

"Do not weep for me when I am gone
For I have friends in the great beyond.
All the little ones I used to feed
Will come to me in my time of need.
They will purr and bark in great delight,
And I will hold and hug them tight.
Oh what a great day that will be
When my furry friends all welcome me."
