Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been a genealogist for 27 years. I was born in Kansas and grew up in Kansas until I was a sophomore in high school. We then moved to Des Moines, Iowa where I finished high school. I have lived all over the country and traveled in 43 states. I love the history of our country and studying my families along with their friends and neighbors. I keep a huge database of families because I track them as they travel westward. I have helped many people find their ancestors because I have a gift at tracking families, so I want to share that with others. I don't always find everyone, but my percentage rate is at least 95% of the time. They call me the sleuth!! One of my friends once told me "ya can't hide from you!"

My father was adopted in 1920 and I found our biological family in 1992 when he was 72 years old. I am willing to help adoptees try to find their families, especially the stolen children of Georgia Tann of the Tennessee Children's Home Society in Memphis, Tennessee.

I recently completed research for Hewitt Clarke's new book, "Money and Blood" and am currently doing research for another new book he's going to publish. The story features a section on the family of Filmore Johnson and his wife, Betty Levy and the self made million, Robert Johnson who started BET television, whom is a descendant of Filmore Johnson.

Richie Family-Ellis County, Texas
Please contact me about your research on the Richie Family in Ellis County, Texas. I am particularly concerned about the graves you are attributing to "Buzzard Roosts" near Italy, Texas. I,too, am researching the Richie family as I have an ancestral connection. Since you are a professional researcher, I am sure you want your sources to be accurate. At the present time, I reside in Ellis County, and have active membership in both the Historical Commissions and Genealogical Society. I don't necessarily want to manage these graves; I do, however, wish that all that is recorded to be as accurate as possible. Thank you, in advance, for your reply.

Eliza Ann Templin Reagor
Hello I am the GGG Granddaughter of Eliza Ann Reagor. You added her Memorial to the site. I was wondering where you obtained the information for her memorial? I have been researching my history and I would love to have a photo of her grave site. Her daughter Georgie Reagor/Coleman/Davis was my GG Grandmother. She married Walter Coleman SR and moved from Ellis, TX after the 1889 land run. I was told that she was buried in the Boren Cemetery, but you have her listed in the Ennis Memorial Cemetery. How did you obtain that information? I would like to visit the area but I am not sure where she is located. I would also like to know how you found out her maiden name of Templin? I understand that my grandmother was a slave and was trying to find her on the 1870 census under the Templin family around that time, but can't find her listed. Any additional information that you have would be great. I can be reached at
