Bio Photo OUR SON David Varnell


A.K.A. - DEE☼

Please visit a young murder victim, Kayleah Wilson
Please visit this little boy Jimmy Hash
Please visit my cousin Buddy Wardlaw who was killed in WWII.
Please visit our daughter-in-law's father & Korean War Vet Robert George Jr.

Many, many thanks for visiting these mighty special people:

THE INVINCIBLE Phemie the Primal Force
MY Littlest Uncle, who lived only 11 days.
I couldn't have gotten better in-laws if I'd tried. Please visit my mighty sweet mother-in-law, Naomi Varnell, and my great father-in-law, Jack Varnell - Jack was a veteran of WWI. Jack and Naomi raised 12 children and a whole lot of cotton on a farm in Oklahoma.

PLEASE VISIT ► ► ► ► Baby Yannis

My best friend: Regina Davidson

Regina was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, and friend. She worked for the State of Arkansas for 33 years. A lay preacher with the Methodist Church, she led the graveside services for David. Losing her was a staggering blow to her family, her myriad friends, and her church and community. She was Everybody's Best Friend, and I was, I am so honored and blessed to have known her!


There are two little boys buried out on the desert of Nevada, Clyde W. Hart and his brother Kenneth V. Hart . Do please pay them a visit. No kin of mine or anybody I know, just a pair of little boys out in the middle of noplace.

In my "**... Lonesome Places**" virtual cemetery will be found other children buried in abandoned graveyards, off by themselves, or beside a trail, such as Baby Catalina, who sleeps in an abandoned cemetery in Wyoming, where an animal has dug around her little headstone. I sure hope you can pay her a visit.

A little girl is buried in Mississippi, who over 90 years after her passing still has the ability to reach out and indelibly touch people, whether it is a young girl who saw the grave and never forgot it, or a grown man wandering a graveyard, and making special notice of it in a book. Her name is Fairy Jumper , and I hope you will visit her too.

Many, many thanks to my Find A Grave friend, rendovaJJ Coppinger, for introducing Fairy to me!

Many thanks to AngelWings for sponsoring our Fairy's memorial.

I've changed his burial site to Tennessee, with date still unknown. I have no knowledge of this family (inherited memorial) and do hope that some day we're able to put a date and place to his final resting site. Thank you.

Hi, Dorothy. I just read your memorial for your Uncle Bill, and it brought tears to my eyes. Bless him for his service.

Jeremiah Gwynn
Jeremiah is my great great grandfather.
His son, Martin is my great grandfather.
You do not show him listed.
The 1850 census Clinton Co., KY
shows Jeremiah and wife Nancy with
Mary, Mahala, David, Aleazor, Malissa
On the same page is:
James Guinn and wife Angelina with their 2 children

I don't know why old Martin doesn't show up on that one. But he is their baby boy.
I have a total of 9 children.

Gwynn questions
Edward Gwynn (b. 1621)
m. Lucy Bernard (b. Abt 1647 d. 1675) married 1645

Then there is Edmond Gwynn (b. 1643)
m Lucy Bernard (b.1647 d. 1675)
married 1669

Is this the same Lucy Bernard?

My other question is regarding Hugh Gwynn (1618-1699) Do you happened to know if he was a Col.?
There is a find a grave site showing a Col. Hugh Gwynne.

Thanks again

RE: 67847833
The fact that the other find a grave info is different is just why I am reaching out to you. I do not think they are correct. They have told me that they are not related and they put "burial unknown" in bio and plop them where they "should be". This drives me crazy. Good news is: they are transferring to me and I am trying to correct. I am so glad I found you. Of course, always more questions: On Richard Gwynn (1738-1777)- his daughter Elizabeth (1779-1842)- my Family Tree Maker told me that Elizabeth was born 2 years after her dad died. So, can you check on that?

Thank you for helping me.
I have never seen a page set up like yours. It is truly amazing.

RE: Mansel Varnell's Parents
Hi Dorothy,

I don't blame you for being confused. So am I. I have no idea what my intention was since I'm aware of who Mansel's parents are. Obviously an error.

Sorry about that.
