Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been working on my own family tree since about the Fall of 1999. I started this project by doing transcripts of my own family's cemeteries and taking photos of the stones. I am sure this is how most folks get started doing this kind of thing.

On my father's side, I am researching these names; Campbell, Clouse, Donalson, Edwards, Elam, Engle, Faris/Farris, Gillum/Gilliam, Harris, Hodge/Hodges, Hutton, Keck, Owsley and Riddle at this time. These surnames are from Virginia, Kentucky, Tennessee and Texas, with ties to England, Germany and Scotland.

On my mother's side, I am researching these names; Cantley, Clay, Gibbs, Rorrer/Rohrer and Turner at this time. These surnames are from Kentucky, Pennsylvania, Virginia and West Virginia, with ties to Switzerland, Germany and England.

You have my permission to use any photos posted here as long as it used for research and not for profit.

Thank you for catching the duplicate record for Peggy. I have deleted it. I am checking the Mesquite Cemetery records against Find A Grave and adding the ones I don't find. I gave you the plot location as a suggestion to add to your record for her. Again, thank you!

RE: Mary Green
You're welcome for the photos of Mary Keck Green's memorial. As I recall, I had to remove lichen from the stone to get a good picture. It should be good for another 10 years, now. I might be related to your mother's side of the family, particularly the Turner/Rohrer (Royer?) branches.

RE: McClellan Cemetery
not sure if this is McClellan Cemetery, we went to years ago looking at Higgins and McClellan. If you haven't already traveled, it is off the beaten path. Turn on to 229 off of 25E and you will go a short ways and there will be a red metal building on the right hand side of the road, we parked there and then walked past the end of the building a short distance and there was a logging road that we followed up the hill after a short hike we found it off to the right side, it was not taken care of but I believe there was a military marker for a McClellan very old one if I am remembering correctly can't access my cemetery photos due to they are on a disc and disc player on laptop has died.

RE: McClellan Cemetery
Still looking, I think I tried to find it and never could find it. You are probably correct on being off the beaten path
