I've been doing genealogy for more years than I care to remember and all of my family knows that it has become an obsession. I love doing the research and finding new relatives. But I am not just a name collector I like to know if the person is related even if it is only distantly. My niece Jan Bean is helping me to add family members to this website. I really appreciate all of her help and support. I have added memorials that are not related and I am happy to do transfers of memorials that are not part of my family. PLEASE DO NOT ADD EXTRA HEADSTONE PHOTOS OR PHOTOS OF CERTIFICATES to my memorials, this leaves room for photos of the deceased within the five-photo limit on unsponsored memorials.
Unfortunately I didn't take a photo of Eva's grave, but we only live about 45 mins from the cemetery, so next time we're there I will take one and upload it.
Yes, Dad does remember Martha (she goes by the name Ann) quite well; she was still living at last check and Dad keeps in touch on an infrequent basis. Last time Dad talked to her was 4 or 5 years ago; she was living in the Columbia SC area at that time. Dad said she never got married or had any children that he knew of.
I am not a blood relative of the Vickerys (that I know of) but our family is related to them by marriage dozens of different ways. I would be happy to share the info Dad and I have on the Vickery family if you think it might be helpful. Let me know and I'll provide you with contact info, etc.
RE: Eva Vickery You're welcome, and thanks for updating it! Eva was my great-aunt. My father and I were looking at some family info on Findagrave a few days ago and he questioned her death date of 1933 since he remembered her well from his childhood (Dad was born in 1936.)We checked out her gravestone, and yes, it was difficult to read, so we cleaned it off as best we could...
James H. Boroughs Hi Sharon: I am trying to determine if James H. Boroughs is my great grandfather. I believe his 10th child with Sarah is my grandfather, William Welborn Burroughs. It appears my grandfather changed the spelling of his name to Burroughs. He married Rosa O'Brien and they had 3 children - one of which is my father. If you have any information to corroborate this finding please let me know. Thanks, Edna Rose Burroughs Beard
BTW, I knew a Joyce Bean Nelson from Rockingham. Do you know her by any chance?
RE: Obits I think he wrote on each obit the name of the newspaper & the date. McCurtain County had 3 or 4 different newspapers years ago. On the page that had the letter to Santa, was the other Holman related to Elizabeth? I thought the Santa letters were so neat. I think anyone would really like to add that to their family history records. You probably could add that to her memorial. I'm still looking through old obits and will send the ones you want as I find them. Talk Later And you are welcome--Glad to help
