Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been working on family history for several years. I work is mainly with the lines of Mayo, Ogg, Leibfritz, Pemberton, Proctor, Hawkins, Hancock, Moore, Pigg, Blanton, Turney, Raney/Rainey, and Scott families and various other branches of the families. My in-laws are Powers, Simpkins, Everett, Jennings, Bass, Cook and Taylor Most of the relatives came from Ireland, Scotland, England and Germany.

Most of my research has been in Virginia, West Virginia, North Carolina, Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama and Texas.

If any of the memorials I have created are in your line (but not in mine) I will be happy to transfer same to your care. Any changes or corrections you have are welcomed.

I am working in Find A Grave to get most of the family listed there and asking the professional ancestry contributors that have made basic entries to transfer them to a family member or to me so that we can get the families linked and make sure the information is as correct as possible to make it possible for other members to find their loved ones. Pictures of markers or headstones have been a blessing for those of us who have been unable to travel to the cemetery. Also we find where members of past generations are buried when this information is lost.

Always interested in contact with anyone who is a relative and might have more information, pictures, etc. Verification of information is extremely important.

Removed items
Yes, I've removed about half of my contributions, due to the angry and nasty emails I've been getting for three years through this site.
It's not worth the trouble and heartburn people are giving me over a volunteer project when I'm transcribing what is on the grave markers, but people want to get nasty and report me for site violations. I'd rather exchange information privately with those who can be decent, such as yourself.

Hi Wanda,
You create two memorials for the same person. It happens sometimes when you use back after creating the memorial. There are actually three of him, two you created. The other one was created in March of this year so it had to be there when you created it. If you want I can request a merge but they go by the date of the memorial that is created first so his would remain in place after a merge. Kelly

Hello Wanda,
I took pictures of all head stones at the Pleasant View Church of Christ Cemetery and did not see him there. The next time I am out a the Methodist Church, I will look there for his head stone.

According to Robertson County Memorial Gardens records, Albert M. Jones (1933-2006) is buried beside Gladys Jones (1925-1989). The dates are taken from their headstones.
