|Bio and Links|
I have been actively searching for my elusive ancestors since 1974. What began all those years ago as an endeavor to help my daughter with a class project quickly turned into a major obsession. Here it is thirty four years later and I'm still obsessed and still spending most of my waking hours trying to break down those brick walls and piece together all the loose ends. I only began recently posting family Memorials on Find A Grave. A few of the family lines I am working on are:|
Heart/Hart (Brick Wall)
Busby (Brick Wall)
I also work on my husband's lines:

|James Shearin||Jesse Clinton Casey's son William E. Casey|
Hello, I keep seeing that on the Casey family links everyone is talking about the bible of Jesse Clinton Casey. I was wondering if you have any more information on his son William E. Casey born 06/22/1866. William E. Casey married Allie F. Marlin on 07/24/1887 in Taney County, Missouri. Allie was the daughter of Robert Emmett Marlin and Louisa Angelina Hogan. By the 1900 Census they were in Boone County, Arkansas with children Sarah Loella "Lou" Casey born 06/1893 and William E. Jr. born 03/1897. By 1910 they were living in Rogers County, Oklahoma. Allie died sometime after the 1920 Census. William E. Jr died sometime prior to 1930 as his children Edward L. Casey and Dewayne Casey are living with their aunt and grandfather William Elijah Casey (that's how he is listed in the census) shows born in Arkansas father born in Georgia and mother born in Tennessee. William Elijah Casey died sometime after the 1940 Census. I don't have a death date or location for either William Elijah Casey, Allie F. Marlin Casey, or William Elijah Casey Jr. Sarah Loella "Lou" Casey married a Louis Edward Smith. She was born on 06/21/1893 in Taney County, Missouri and died on 05/06/1973 in Tarrant County, Texas. She is buried in the Adair Cemetery, Adair, Mayes County, Oklahoma. She had no children but raised her 2 nephew's.
|Jan McKee||RE: Thank you for fulfilling photo request|
very happy to do it.
|Nancy ||Aaron Casey estate records|
Dear Ms. Dihm,
You mentioned that you had estate papers of both Aaron and Mary Polly Wayne. I am trying to help their 6xs ggrandaughter get in the DAR. She has the papers saying Aaron served in the Revolutionary War in SC, but finding documents linking him to Polly has been difficult.
Do you have that linkage? If so, would you be willing to email me a copy?

If you notice by the number of requests still pending for over a year with this cemetery that unless there is a location, volunteers are unable to get information from the cemetery. This cemetery is very unfriendly to volunteers and without a location, we are unable to fulfill your request. There are over 80,000 burials at this cemetery. If you would call the cemetery, they will help relatives in ascertaining locations. If you get the location, you can either place it on the memorial through the edit function or message me directly. Their number is 714-633-1442.

I would like to pick up your photo request but Sparkman Hillcrest (SH) does not like to provide burial locations to volunteers, citing privacy issues. Your cooperation is needed in order for requests to be filled. The volunteers will need you to call SH and request the location. Their phone number is 214-363-5401. Once you have the location, please add it to your request. Thanks.

You're welcome. I have found cemeteries to be very helpful with location information when I call, including several on Long Island. Mostly I have called for family folks. Good Luck, Bob

|Tish James||George W Snow|
I was hoping you might be able to create a findagrave for George W. Snow, son of Ebenezer and husband to Rebecca Beckham Snow. From the info I have read, his marker location is unknown but a site for him would be nice to link to his father's page #58611586.
Chet Snow has some great info on WikiTree that might be good to add for details about his life.
Thank you so much,
granddaughter to Burl Levi Snow, great-granddaughter to Willis Green Snow, GGgranddaughter to George W. Snow.
|kay berg||Cora Culp|
My name is (Melody) Kay Wilburn Berg. I am the granddaughter of Cora Culp, daughter of Nathan Culp. My father was Cora's son, William Delbert Wilburn. I have a hand written letter from my dad about his heritage. He mentions that my great grandfather, German Wilburn was German and Irish and my great grandmother was English and Indian. He often referred to his Indian heritage. He used to tease my mom and me and say, "I'm going to divorce your mother, put you in an orphanage, the dog in the dog pound and go back to the reservation where they know how to treat a man." We affectionatly referred to him as Chief Sock in the Wash. I think he was very proud to be of Indian Heritage. Do you have anything to document that heritage Vonda? I would love to hear from you. I would be glad to send you a copy of this letter he wrote as well. I look forward to hearing from you or any of my long lost cousins.

|Margaret M. Robinson||Thanks Vonda|
Keep on keeping on. God made some of us the family historians, and your research has been a big help to me. Thank You. Margaret Robinson
|tygerstinger||RE: George W. Flippo|
I wish I had known about the get together> I would have loved to have met you. Thank you for all the work you did. I know it took a lot of research and I have learned more about the George W Flippo side of the family because of it.
