Bio and Links
Bio Photo in 2011~~ I became very interested in researching my dad's family HORNSBY & I started in Tallassee, Alabama for that is where he was originally from as I understood from him as he has led me to discover KIN I never knew I had. It also was amazing to watch my 5 sisters as I shared with them. As we grew up, we had very little contact with Hornsby's other than my dad's siblings & I will never forget what my baby sister said ''oh my I thought we were the only Hornsby's'' she was amazed at the cemeteries filled with relatives as we explored. It made me think about all the people who really did not know family from the past. How sad for that to be lost. I have come away with a desire to add what I can as I take photos & add to this site. I have also come away with this understanding: ask your relatives, especially the older ones for when they are gone unless they wrote it is lost. When we know our relatives it gives a sense of ''belonging'' a sense of ''completeness''. Yes, we may discover things we did not want to know yet it accomplishes our ''wholeness''that we belong to a family unit created by God Himself.. Even in the Bible geneologies are written for those who ''come behind'' may we do the same!
***please take note****all photos added by me of grave sites have been personally taken by me/people, events are photos owned by my family/I can only speak for myself and the photos that I have taken. I am giving my express permission for you to use my photos in any way you see fit in your family research on this site or other sites BUT they are not to be sold.... If you would like you may copy for your personal treasures of the family. Thank you :)
PLEASE BE KIND when making request of me. I will add, this is about memories of loved ones not trying to outdo the other or get someone in trouble. I am sure we all overlook things on FAG & make mistakes. I do not mind you asking for corrections either through the public, private email or the edit tab. I do not mind transferring your loved one to you. If I duplicate it was indeed an error & if you did yours first, please ask kindly for me to delete it. I am here, as you are, to honor & have a place of memory for others who have gone on before us. Thank you !!

RE: Herbert Hornsby
Ann, you're so welcome. Tell me the names of the ones you'd like transferred to you and I will do so. I have Edits that people send me, either on my Edit page or just an email asking that I add, link, etc the AL Hornsbys. I'd love to send them to you. Let me know. A list by regular email would be fine. Nancy

Moncus Family
Yes I am related to several Moncus. My great great grandmother, Martha Emily Fisher Hodge was sisters with Frances Ellen Fisher Moncus (my 2nd great grand aunt) who married James William Moncus, the son of James Moncus and Penelope Perry Moncus where many of the Moncus of Randolph and Clay Co., Alabama descend from. Opal McGill Moncus, (wife of nephew of wife of 3rd great grand uncle)the wife of Bruuner Mack Moncus, the son of Elick Mack Moncus is related also through my McGill family line. She is the daughter of George Edward McGill and Mollie Camp (another family line)He is 2nd cousin 3x removed)She was still living not long ago in Randolph Co., Alabama and has a book on the McGill and Moncus family. You might see if you can make contact.

Knighton/Hornsby connection
I loved your memorial to Thomas Hornsby. His mother, Elizabeth Knighton Hornsby was a sister to our Samuel Knighton who left Georgia and went on to settle in Lafayette County, Arkansas. Thank you for your notes!

RE: both Willie G & Paul are at prattville memorial gardens

LOL okay done. Just the numbers would have been fine.
Sorry! My bad! Senior moment? Didn't register! You were perfectly clear, my head wasn't.
I added the grave marker from Paul to Willie where it should have been since the beginning. If you get a better one or different one I will can and will gladly remove the one I moved to Willie.
I see I manage all 4 Rhodes memorials and they sound like important family members.
Would you like me to transfer to you?
