|Bio and Links|
Sharlotte Kathleen Bridgette Neely Donnelly is Professor of Anthropology and Director of Native American Studies at Northern Kentucky University and is the author of the book Snowbird Cherokees and the science fiction novel Kasker. She received her college degrees from Georgia State University in Atlanta (BA) and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (MA and PhD). |
Sharlotte's ancestry is Irish, Scots, Scots-Irish, Welsh, English, Viking, Norman French, German, other European, both west and north African, southwest Asian, and Lumbee Native American. Like the prehistoric Ítzi the Iceman found in the Alps, she is a descendent of the matrilineal clan of "Katrine" (mtDNA haplogroup K, specifically K1a4a1b) who lived near present-day Venice, Italy about 15,000 years ago. Sharlotte also has a small amount of Neanderthal and Denisovan ancestry.
She is the only child of Joseph Bowden Neely and Kathleen Bell Neely, originally of Savannah, Georgia. Sharlotte is married to anthropologist, attorney, and high school athletic director Thomas Christian Christopher Donnelly, and they have one child, Mary Kathleen Bridgette Elisabeth Donnelly, and one grandchild, Mary Kathleen Quinn Donnelly. The family lives in Cincinnati, Ohio. Sharlotte's personal web page is at Sharlotte's Anthropology Page. Sharlotte's genealogy web page is at the Donnelly and Neely Family Page. She has been interested in genealogy since she was a small child working on her family history with her maternal grandmother, Nevada McClelland Bell. Her love of visiting cemeteries comes from her paternal grandmother, Nettie King Neely Riley.

|James Osborne||RE: Thanks!|
Your welcome! Another contributor had just taken a photo of one of my grave requests, so I was motivated to help someone else. I was interested in your Cherokee discussion on your page. My West Virginia relatives put on an outdoor drama most years called "Solomon's Secret." It's the story of my GG grandfather and a small family group who escaped the Trail of Tears and moved to Virginia and then to Clay County, WV. Anyway, I'll see if I can talk my wife into some more graveyard walking to find your relatives in Hillcrest Abbey East and Greenwich. Good luck with your research.

James Merk is my Great Grandfather, I am looking for any information anyone might have on him and his family. We have a family bible that belonged to my grandfather we think not sure if it is his or my maybe my grandmothers Madggie N Butler It has the births of a family by the name of Lovet Starting with Levew Lovet 1833 and ending with Martha Lovet born 1833
Along the side is written Hardy Lovet is a John B. Williams I have not been able to connect with either grandparent. If anyone has information on this family it would be greatly appreciated.
We are now doing grave searches for Find a grave thanks to you efforts, we hope we can help some
else in their search.
