Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello to all and thank you for stopping by my profile page at findagrave. My name is Elizabeth but I prefer to go by Beth. I Love my family and family history.

Right now I'm a full time nursing student and when class is in, I don't have the time to work on genealogy like I would like to.

I was the 3rd of three children born to Mickey Richard Green and Brinda Louise Shields in Modesto, California. We lived most of my life in Ceres, Ca. then moving to Sonora, Ca. my freshman year of high school, graduating from Sonora Union High School.

We moved several times to different parts of Missouri and back to California. I have become tired of trucks with the name U-Haul on them.

I married in 1989 in Sonora, Ca. to my three son's father, (divorced apx. in 2002). Our family made our final move six months after I married to Joplin, Jasper County, Mo., where we started a family and still today live in southwest Mo., in a small town called Carterville, a part of the Joplin, Missouri Metropolitan Statistical Area.

My father was born near Edna, Creek County
Oklahoma. He was the seventh child of seven born to Albert James Green and Mary Kathryn Brummett.

My mother was born in St. Louis, St. Louis County, Missouri. She was third child of four born to Silas Chubberry Shields and Opal Georganna Nelson.

My Grandmother Opal Nelson married a second time to Vernon Ray Henson, they had a son and they adopted a son.

I never knew either of my grandfathers. both passed away before my birth. My Grandfather Silas, passed away in 1965 and Vernon became a wonderful grandfather and Dad to all Opal's kids.

I am thankful I had Vernon as my Grandfather, he give me the love of a Grandfather and his knowledge of life, he was a great man. Sometimes blood don't make you family.

My family surnames:

Green, Cochran, Brummett, Wilson/Willson, Walker Smith

Nelson, Gray, Rye, Jefferys, Borden, Meadows, Langley, Shields, Nalley/Nally

I will help when I can with what I can.
If you choose to E-Mail me, please use all caps in the subject box so it will catch my eye, it is better to just personal message on facebook, I check it daily for family updates.

To those of you, if by chance I have a family memorial that belongs to you please ask for a transfer. Most of the memorials I have are a direct relative.
Per the Find-A-Grave policy: "Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations, this would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents."
But if you are of a direct relative I will gladly transfer a grave that I am not related to. Families should be with family and it would mean more to me to see them with family than if I kept them myself. So please ask, we may find that were related :)

Have a wonderful day!!

This is one of my sites I like to go to when searching for family in Missouri:
Missouri Digital Heritage:

This is an interesting site:
The State Historical Society of Missouri;
Historic Missourians:

The State Historical Society of Missouri Digital Collection‎


I do not give permission to any websites to use any of my personal pictures that I have added.

RE: Frederick Gray
Hey Beth. Sorry these Brummett's do not connect up with my Brummett's. If we could get back further, say in the 1600-1700, I might be able to find a connection. Sorry, I can't be more help. There might be a connection with the ones who lived in Kentucky. But can tell from the information you have.

RE: Add A Note
I am unable to do that because I no longer manage the memorial. You will need to contact them (Carolyn (#48411579).

No. Beth I am no kin to Mr. Gray. My hobby is putting grave memorials on Find A Grave so others like you can find their kin. The information that is included was provided by another person. However, I am interested about your Brummett heritage. If you are looking for some of them I my be able to help you there. Let me know.
