My name is Jamie Ellis and I live in the Texas Metroplex. I have two children and have been married for almost 17 years. I started researching my family when I was 12 years old. I could spend all day walking around a cemetery especially when the weather is cool (if only it was cooler more often)and there is a nice breeze.
My husbands ggg grandfather donated the land that Bethesda Cemetery is located on.
I am currently photographing several cemeteries.
My family names I am researching are Amick, Corya, McCoskey, Northcutt, Hawkins, Coffman, Williamson, Lumley, Routh, Raber, Guthrie, Moore, Rodgers and Dunham.
Husband's family names I am researching are Owens, Owen, Ellis, Royse, Rainwater, White, Trapp, Caudill, Maggard, Cagle, Stisher, Shook, Martin and House.
If I have incorrect information or you would like me to transfer a family member to you just let me know, I am not really into how many memorial's I can add I just do this to help people find their loved ones.
I am currently having computer problems. As soon as I am back up and running, I will try and fill everyone's request. Sorry for any inconveniences I may be causing. Thanks for your patience.
I am looking for the information concerning Mrs.Linda Sue Ellis, who was born in 1939 in New York. Her parents were Abraham (Arthur) and Molly Ellis. She had a sister Sonia. Do you know something about it?

RE: Day family Jamie, I am the gr-gr-grandson of William Byrd Day(49375563), and the great grandson of William Bryd Day, Jr. who married Josephine Whitson Day. Please look though the links you helped create to see my connection.
You descend thougth Lutitia Ellen Day, who married Pleasant Inaman in 1861: Their children were Francis Marion, Franklin Pleasant, and Nancy Ellen Inman Day (Jobe). That's what I have on record. Francis Marion, daughter, was your descendant?
After the Civil War Lutitia's brother, David Maion Day, traveled to Texas, Tarrent County by wagon train. When his first wife, Mary, died David Marion Day went back to Alabama. Mary and David had one son, Samuel Byrd Day. David remarried and had many more children. All these similar names confuse us all.
"Still hunting" for 3 of WBDay's children. Thanks, Paul and Alice
Nancy Harbison Day Please link Nancy # 49376566 to her husband, Willim Byrd Day, Sr. # 49375563. They were both buried in the Day Cemetery. I found out that my grandfather, William Byrd Day, Jr. was buried in the Day Cemetery, so far, no headstone has been found.
