Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been pursuing genealogy for about fifty years researching numerous lines in Texas and all other southern states. My Smith family was located in Stephen F. Austin's 2nd colony and 4th colony. My Dyches/Dykes/Dikes line was located in Zavalla's colony.
If you find any mistakes, please advise and I will correct ASAP.
I've added certain memorials that I accidently took pictures of that are not my family or connection. If you find one, I would be more than happy to transfer them to you. Let me know. If I have added directs for you, I would be happy to transfer them no matter what generation if they are not directs for me.
The obits that I have been sending out are gems found in the old newspapers. Hope they add some background. Any picture that I have added to any memorial, you are welcome to copy.
Researching Whitmire, Dyches, Fish, Bennett, Smith, McWhorter, McClure, Ballew, Stribling, Farr, McGinty, Bowles.

PLEASE FEEL FREE TO ADD FAMILY PHOTOS, GRAVE PHOTOS, CEMETERY FHOTOS TO MY MEMORIALS BUT PLEASE do not ADD PICTURES OF DEATH RECORDS, WAR RECORDS OR OTHER RELATED GOVERNMENTAL RECORDS TO THE MEMORIALS. THIS INFORMATION BELONGS IN THE BIO SECTION.

RE: Family line for Dewitt Roberts and his parents
Hi, Patty

Sorry if I seem to be pestering you. I have contacted the other person now and hope this will be straightened out.

I only get a little upset when I see mistakes because these are so many people out there that just want to link information without verifying it. This leads to so many trees having criss-crossing errors, leading new members to the genealogy hunt to have a harder time figuring out what is right.

Thanks for all of your efforts. I depend on people like you, since I am disabled and cannot get out there to see these things for myself.

Best of luck
Marie S.

Family line for Dewitt Roberts and his parents
Patty,

I tried to send this in an email - sbc would not allow it for some reason.

Find A Grave Memorial# 16808372 for Eleanor Kathern "Tine" McWhorter Roberts shows her son Dewitt Roberts as her spouse, even though it correctly states Champion was her husband.

It also shows the same on her son's Find A Grave Memorial# 67016385, even though it states his father and mother's names correctly.

I do not know how to correct this, but I am sure you probably do.

Thanks,
Marie S.

Dyches/Dykes and Whitmire
Hi Patty,
I ran across you while searching for my Dyches family tree. Lucinda and Josiah are my 4th great grandparents. Their daughter Harriet Dyches married a Wesley Burgoyne Dyches (cousin?). I am trying to find info on Wesley's parents and Lucinda's maiden name.
I also notice you have family named Whitmire? I have Whitmire on my father's mothers side. Interested to know if the Whitmire and Dyches have a connection? If so then my father and mother have common relatives. LOL
You can send me a message to my email SEKerls@aol.com. or leave me a message on my profile, but I am not on here all that much.
Thanks

Solomon Ransom Tedder #54893745
This man is my husband's 3G great grandfather. I have my daddy's family, both maternal and paternal buried in the cemetery. Youngblood and Benson. We looked Sunday for the Teddar family but as you have said, they seem to be in the "stone headstones" area. Where did you get the information that this is the Tedder family? There is another Shady Grove Baptist Church over on McGinnis Ferry Road which is also Forsyth County. When I first started researching him, I thought he was at the McGinnis Ferry Road church and went to look and didn't find him there. We wonder why he was buried over at the Shady Grove Road church when the census shows them living last in the Big Creek Community which is on the opposite side of Forsyth County from Shady Grove Road church. I HAVE EVEN CONFUSED MYSELF! :)

did not die when you said. If you will look at the Census of the son you have listed- You will find her with him in 1860.

Duplicate Memorials - Susan Sheldon Stribling
Susan Stribling Memorial# 67513789 (Fairplay Presbyterian Church Cem.) and Memorial
58163426 (Beaverdam Presbyterian Church Cemetery).

Perhaps the name of the Church changed. Your memorial at Beaverdam has the most information on it. This person has nothing to do with my research - I just happened to see it when searching for my folks! The contributor for the Fairplay memorial has their messages disabled.
Thanks for all you do for FindaGrave.
Regards
