I have been fascinated, since I was very young, with how I came to be where I am. As I noted on my website:
The Southern author Shirley Abbott wrote, "We all grow up with the weight of history on us. Our ancestors dwell in the attics of our brains as they do in the spiraling chains of knowledge hidden in every cell of our bodies." This is how I have felt since I was a young girl and why this work will never be finished.
I am those who came before - with some "me" added in.
All of the photos I have uploaded are copyrighted as they have been restored and/or enhanced from the originals. I am glad to share ~ just ask and I will send you a copy but please dont take without asking.
Also, please do not post photos of death certs. I will be glad to put info in the bios.
Patricia Fanning I am looking for any further information on Patricia Fanning. Mainly her children. Her grandchild is searching for his birth father. Raymond Whitehead possibly. Thank you for taking the time to read this. ~Jeni
RE: photo of marker of William PARKER Absolutely you may! Looking back at the photo, I am now embarassed that I didn't make more of an effort to clear the grass away so you could see all the writing, but I seem to remember it being quite cold and windy:) Enjoy, Kim
Pearl Powell I'm just now putting up the image of Dean and Pearl Powell's marker. The request I saw was just for Dean; so, I can either just put the image up for him and let you take another for Pearl or I can use the same image for Pearl. Just let me know.
Lillian Jetty Roberts Thank you for having the memorial for Lillian Jetty Anderson Roberts. I saw your request for a photo for her, and I looked at the city's index... and she is not in it. As you are aware, her obituary and death certificate indicate she was buried in West End.
Mary Harriet Wagnon Hi - Yes I am related - at least I am related through her husband and descendants. I am making a big effort right now to getting all my Wagnon families linked together on findagrave. If you have photos, biography or anything about Mary, please feel free to put it on her memorial.
