Bio and Links
Bio Photo Family genealogy is my passion. I love doing the research and reading all the history that goes with it. Finding someone you've been looking for pop up out of the blue as if to say 'I've been here all a long' Connecting with family and friends sharing their memories is what it's all about. Keeping the family alive for generations to come. Putting their lineage down on paper so they can tell their children as I've told mine. Find a Grave is one of those places for families to connect and the memories stay alive.

Rachel Johnson
Looking for Realatives
Hi Dana, I am Rachel Johnson, married to Verle Johnson, who is the son of Leslie Johnson who was Mauritz Johnson's son. Making Sven Johnson our Great Great Grandfather also. Verle and his two brothers Dean and John are trying to find out about some of their relatives. Do you have any information about who Sophia, Ida, Millie, Stancie, Emma and Charley were married to and who their children are. If you have any information, we would sure appreciate hearing from you. My sister is into genealogy and she got me this far. Hoping to hear from you

RE: Alabama Faulkner
Dana, I understand the feeling as I'm a rural carrier associate for the post office. I'm only guaranteed work on Saturdays. The beginning of the year was slow and I mostly only worked that one day a week. Starting a couple weeks ago, I've been called in a lot (probably due to the career carriers taking summer vacations). It's ebb & flow, ya know?

Seriously though, the last couple months I would have gone out of my mind if I didn't get out of the house and go to Oxford Memorial! Helping do inexpensive genealogical favors for others helped me out in a few ways the past couple of months.

I guess we'll just keep touching base here. Eventually, you'll get some free time to share some news with me. LOL! Talk to ya later! ~Everett

P.S.- I also plan on sharing a copy of the death certificate with you once a copy has been obtained.

Alabama Faulkner Memorial Update
I just finished doing a write-up on Alabama's virtual memorial, explaining about her life and how her story was obtained. I will add confirmation about the family transportation as it becomes available. Let me know what you think of it so far. Planning on obtaining a copy of Alabama's death certificate in the next couple of months as well. Sent an e-mail off to the site's owners to see if the certificate can be posted once obtained. If not, I'll post a note stating that the death certificate can be obtained by e-mailing me. That's all for now. ~Everett

Faulkner/Caruthers Connections
Dana, thought I'd touch base to see how your family connection research is coming along. Have you done any further work to see what connection exist in your family lines since we were last in contact a few months ago? Not sure how much interest you have in pursuing the topic, but I figured I'd ask anyway. Do you live somewhere local to Oxford (MS)? If not, is there anything I can help you work on? Ya know, the prior manager for Alabama's virtual memorial voluntarily transferred management to me after I shared my story with her (just to assure her that I wasn't posting some random photos of the ground on the memorial page). That whole adventure took on a life of its own for a little bit there once the case was cracked. I still have to figure out a way to best honor the life and memory of Alabama on her memorial page. Was distracted by having my maternal grandmother visiting with us from Michigan the past 2 months. Just now getting back to figuring out what I wanna do with the memorial page. Say, what would your relation be to Alabama? Have you figured that out yet? ~Everett

RE: Alabama Faulkner Gravesite FOUND!
Dana, I have a St. Peter's family plot survey from 1940 that is still used today by the city and Waller Funeral Home. If you'd like a copy of the map, feel free to check out my profile and e-mail me. Larry Wells' home was actually owned by Maude, not by William's grandfather (according to the state historical sign in his yard). William's grandfather's house (which took up a whole city block) burned down, but Maude's house was on the grounds and still survives today. I've contacted a few sources to find the Alabama grave site, so I was pretty busy making sure that I'd kept everybody in the loop at the time. Since contacting you, I've gone and viewed the Rowan Oak grounds for the first time and gotten a photograph taken with Bill Griffith (the grounds curator), and Anna (his assistant). I've also returned to Larry Wells' home and asked him if I could take a picture with him. He was kind enough to allow me to do that. Larry and his wife both have graves already placed in Oxford Memorial which I've returned to photograph as well.

Additional News
Larry Wells also told me that some of the Caruthers family were servants for the Falkner family. So, in a humorous sense, I'm getting information on each source from the other source and learning all sorts of things! :-) Out of curiosity, are you part of that Caruthers family? If so, which relatives of yours knew the Falkners directly? Please feel free to e-mail me privately (see my profile) for additional photos, cemetery maps, etc. if you desire.
