|Bio and Links|
I descend from two generations of funeral home accountants, so it was no surprise that I later married the funeral home owner's son, a widely known funeral director and mortician. At one time, his family owned five funeral homes in south Mississippi. |
When I was a small child, I remember walks with my Daddy in Rosehill Cemetery, as he took my hand and taught me the proper way to walk around the graves. Occasionally, he would stop at one of the graves and tell me about the life of the resident. To this day, I continue his tradition of placing flowers at the graves of the same family members we visited on holidays.
My mother taught me to love history and opened the world of genealogy to me. When I came across Find A Grave, I knew it was the perfect medium to capture my love of cemeteries, history, and genealogy. I particularly enjoy walking these cemeteries, taking pictures to preserve for the next generation, and sometimes feeling the same peace I felt when my Daddy took my hand and walked beside me.

Hi Caroline, you took a photo of Magnolia Strickland Carley who was my great great grandmother - https://secure.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSln=carley&GSfn=magnolia&GSbyrel=all&GSdyrel=all&GSob=n&GRid=54854734&df=all&
You mentioned that her parents were NJ Strickland and Mary F. Gray and that this information was provided by Martha Parker. I, and many others, have long searched for any information regarding NJ. Would you please share her contact information, or provide her my contact information? A great many of my family members are buried in that cemetery.
My contact info is:
If she is interested, I'm son of James O. Cox III, son of Mildred Carley Cox, daughter of Edmond Eugene Carley, son of Magnolia E. Strickland Carley.

|magadams||RE: William H. Becker, Jr.|
I just remember that from his dying. He and my grandmother Geneva Moreton Becker donated their bodies to the University of Missouri. They supposedly were in the same "class," having died somewhat close in time to one another. Once the university was done with their bodies, they gave the ashes to my mom and her siblings. My mother has Alzheimer's and couldn't fill me in, but I bet my aunt can. I'll see what I can find out.

You're very welcome!
|Hubert Knauff, Jr.||Patsy Wikins Pepper|
Thank-you. Years ago while digging through a huge collection of photos & newpaper clippings, I noticed my parents had several of Patsy's parents engagement announcement, news clippings, and photos. They told me they attended their wedding, and paid visits having recently married themselves. Dad's mother & Patsy, Lisa, Louana, and Lindy's maternal grandmother were indeed sisters. So indeed we share a common set of great-grandparents. Thanks again...
I stumbled across your name by accident and was stunned by the combination of your first and last name. You see, one of my family lines includes a noted Episcopal minister, The Reverend Doctor George Weller (1790 - 1841)& wife CAROLINE whose daughter Susan married a PASSMORE from Minnesota. Any chance this is your family also?

Caroline, I am so sorry. I surely wasn't expecting that. Keeping you and your family in my prayers.
I sure will. Thank you for all you do!
