Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am happy to review SAC (edits) but if you send them I am not notified by findagrave, so please leave me a message that I have an edit and findagrave will send me an e-mail. Also please leave them there for a while. I saw a few but didn't have the time to research them and then they disappeared...

I am happy to share and meet new relatives. I work better behind the scenes. I have found that in trying to help others in one way or another I often help myself later.

In the 1990s I went to the LDS Salt Lake Library to make corrections (on my ancestors) to the Ancestral File which became FamilySearch. One had to reference the proof for the correction. I have other strengths, but I am not that great at finding the burial places...but I am working on that as I learn from other people on findagrave.

Most of the surname genealogies that I have ever seen do not list the burial place.

On My Barrett/Ferguson/Skaggs/Hoffman Line I have many unidentified photos that I would like to compare with other relatives family photos.

On the Jones/Frost/Lindsley/Brett side of my family there a few unidentified photos that I would like to compare with other relatives family photos.

RE: Bertha de Ferrers-Furnival Bigod
Hello Billie

Glad you like the photos of Greyfriars. I will probably go back there sometime and take some more photographs as it seems, from the research I've done of the area, that in about 50 years or so very little of the area will remain. Dunwich is on the Suffolk coast and in the 13th century a lot of the town disappeared under the sea after a three day storm! Over the years erosion has claimed more and more of the coastline. There is one gravestone left on the cliffs from the All Saints church - the church and the graves have all been claimed by the sea over the last 100 years. This gravestone is very near the cliff entrance to Greyfriars so who knows how long it will last. I will let you know when I go and pass on whatever photographs I take.

My husband is related to the de Ferrers by marriage. William who died 1190 in Acre was married to Goda DE TOENI and Sybilla DE BRAOSE we think - so many names the same it's quite difficult sometimes to make sure we have the right families - anyway Vic is related to Goda DE TOEN who was his 23 x great aunt.

I'll be in touch with you and Steve when I get more photos.

Linda

Regarding Lindsley Family
Hi Billie - I am emailing about the Lindsley Family. I am related.
I don't know much about Whiting Smith Lindsley - But I looked him up on Ancestry's Fold3 website, and found a bunch of documents from the widows pention files. Have you seen these? They list what and how he died from , etc. Just though You might be interested. I've read through them a little bit, but I wonder if it details what happened to his body after his death, as you have on his Findagrave page that there's no listing anywhere of his burial.
Thanks for your time! :)

RE: Mittie Chaney Jones
Hi Billie,

I am not related to Mittie. I just stopped by her memorial to pay my respects, when I was leaving additional information for someone else buried there. After learning the history of the Abilene State School, I always make a point to try and pass on any additional information that I run across for anyone buried in the cemetery.

Pirkles
Thank you for the Pirkle Memorials.

I am a frustrated "other Pirtle" descendants. Seeing days and days at a time, over and over sorting out all the Johns, Hans Johns, Hans John Jacobs and my 2 George Pirtles. in the maze of other George Pirtles. Good to see your site.

RE: Tabitha Barrett Hovis Miller parents
Billie,
I read your message about suggesting some corrections for me. But, I don't know where to access ir on this site. Help, please. Tabitha Barrett Hovis is my g-g-grandmother, so we are "kin" somewhere down the line.
After Wm. 'Bill' Hovis died, Tabitha married a man named Wiliam Miller from Poyner, MO on 18 Nov 1891. I know she passed away 29 Oct 1899 and from the obit, he must have still been alive. That is all the information I have on him.
Any help or information you have on the Barretts or Nevilles would be much appreciated. If I have any info you need please don't hesitate to ask

Ferguson Relatives
Hi Billie,
Looks like we share some Ferguson relatives. John Ferguson was my Great, Great Grandfather.
I have been working to find ancestors and family members for a year or so and would like to compare note with someone with the same interest. I have a few pictures on Ancestry.com and would love to see any that you would be willing to share. I look forward to hearing from you.
