Bio and Links
Bio Photo **PLEASE Note**
If you are requesting an edit or a transfer and I am not related, I will gladly do so, however, you must go to the memorial page and click on suggest/edit and request from there. I cannot hunt down the memorial and then hunt down your member number. I have had 2 requests that I cannot fulfill, since the person has their messages disabled and did not give me the wanted memorial numbers.
You have my permission to copy ANY of my photos for your genealogical and personal use.
I totally enjoy sharing :)
***Why Find-A-Grave***
I do this mainly for genealogy purposes and to dedicate memorials to the ones who have been lost. The information is of PUBLIC record, often found in newspapers, court reords or cemetery records or first hand knowledge from generation family members. This information and memorial will be put in by someone eventually, if not by me. If I have listed a family member of yours and is not related to me and you wish a transfer, please request the transfer by clicking the edit/suggestion button to the right of the memorial. I will transfer the memorial to you and if you wish removal, then you, yourself, may go through the removal process, as it has become difficult to remove them, per Find-A-Grave's new system. Even when a duplicate is made, the removal of the duplication now has to have a reason for it and get an approval before it will be automatically removed by the service. I apologize for the inconvenience this causes, but I am not the one who makes the rules & have no control over the process.****

I am Karen and I have, so far, traced my heritage to the year 1029, Flamsted, England, to my 26th great grandfather, Ralph De Toni and Isabel Montford.

Hi, Dr. H.W. Stigler married my aunt, Lula Pitts. I am trying to determine some positions in my family tree. The 1900 U.S. Census that shows the Klutts and Stiglers next to each other is interesting. It appears from your research that you know the families well. I would like to share information. My email is

Johnnie Mae Palmer
I went to the memorial page and requested an edit. My mother was Johnnie Mae Palmer. Her maiden name is incorrect on her page. It is listed as Whisenant (her mother's maiden name) and Johnnie Mae's maiden name was Brown. She is buried in White County, GA in the Shoal Creek Baptist Church Cemetery. Let me know if there is anything else I need to provide for this listing to be corrected.

Nancy Suddeth Cape
Thanks for making the updates. I read through your profile and saw you were interested in the Copes in Chester, PA. I don't think Nancy's husband's Capes are related (who knows) to the Chester PA Copes, but some of the Buffington's in Hall County, GA are. Thomas Buffington (b. 1680, Chester County, PA) married Ruth Cope (b. 1687, New Castle County, DE) around 1710. Their son Thomas (m. Mary Harlan, 1st m. Daniel Webb) eventually went to SC, but Thomas "Jr's" son Ezekiel was the patriarch of the Hall County GA Buffingtons.

Just wondering if you were related to Kinsey or McMahan thanks for all the time you spend doing this. I live in FL so your info is very important to me. Family trees is important to me. Thanks again for all your help.
