|Bio and Links|
I am married I have three children and one grandchild:I am the baby girl of eight children born to Ellis and Maxine Slavens Woods. While growing up family history was never spoken about. I never had the privilege of knowing my grandparents so it made me have a desire to know where I came from. My research started my senior year of high school when a secretary in the school gave me four family group sheet telling me to document as much history from family members as possible. I still have those pages after all these years. One of my main goals at the time was to find family who might have a picture of my grandfather James Jarrett Woods. I still have not found a picture but the many lines that I have connected and the family and distant cousins I have meet along the way has been priceless. I would like to thank those who have been so gracious to help me along my journey. ----------------|
My ancestors on my fathers Line is Woods, Davis, Bolinger, Hayes, Newberry, Terry, Newport My ancestors on my mothers line are Slavens, Ussery, Morrison, Taylor, Moore, Edwards, Holts, Campbell, Young, Ford, White, From my 1st marriage into Mashburn family and my oldest daughters lineage is Mashburn, Jay, Nutt, Landers and Mason , Robbirds- Robirds, Roberts , Ford, Friend, My sister marrried a Stockstill and Stockstill ties into my daughters heritage also. My oldest daughters heritage is just important to me as my other children. I may not be married into the family anymore but she is still a part of it, Sad that a family member of this line has forgotten. I will pass my daughters heritage to her some day. My 2nd husband's lineage is Montgomery, Chandler and Smith ================
Remember.........That which you share, multiplies and divides. That which you withhold, diminishes and dies. W. Clement Stone-----------
Do your best to share your time, your knowledge, your pictures, your entries. Hoarding names helps no one and they remain basically a naked name with hopefully some part of a date - nothing else ____________
There are many other names that I have researched and connected on FAG that are limbs off of my main line. All are family to me. -----
Romans 2:1-3 You, have no excuse, you who pass judgment on someone else, for at whatever point you judge the other, you are condemning yourself, because you who pass judgment do the same things. Now we know that God's judgment against those who do such things is based on truth. 3 So when you, a mere man, pass judgment on them and yet do the same things, do you think you will escape God's judgment?===============

"Those we love don't go away...They walk beside us every day...Unseen, unheard, but always near...Still loved, still missed and very dear."----------
Life has it's ups and downs, sometimes happiness and sometimes sorrow, but we must not ever forget the people who have gone before us. Their trails were more difficult and their losses many, but with out their efforts and struggles, you and I wouldn't be here.============
Your tombstone stands among the rest;neglected and aloneThe name and date are chiseled outon polished, marbled stoneIt reaches out to all who careIt is too late to mournYou did not know that I'd existYou died and I was born.Yet each of us are cells of youin flesh, in blood, in bone.Our blood contracts and beats a pulseentirely not our own.Dear Ancestor, the place you filledone hundred years agoSpreads out among the ones you leftwho would have loved you so.I wonder if you lived and loved,I wonder if you knewThat someday I would find this spot,and come to visit you.

Etta C Lowder Tackett Memorial# 66487837
PS: Thank you for the suggest a correction you sent me. I did know her husband spelled his name "Tackett" but what you did was cause me to re-examine her marriage certificate. Comparing all the E's in the court clerk's hand writing, what I thought was an I (eye) was yes, a E. So not only did the stone cutter mispell Married (Marred) he mispelled her name "tackitt"
I've made the corrections and posted a note.
|Rick ||RE: John Oliver|
You are welcome, I really don't mind, unless I get the same request again. Take care.

I saw where you had added a photo for George Washington Mullen and I wondered if this George is the same as one that I posted in Old Union Cemetery in Logan County, Arkansas. The dates are a little different, but they match ones on Ancestry.com as the son of James and Mary Shepherd Mullen. Here is a note that I left to the lady who manages James Mullen's memorial:
I have a memorial for George W Mullens/Mullen (63333040) and photo for his tombstone in Old Union Cemetery, Logan County, Arkansas. The dates are a little different than the son listed that you have for James Mullen, but on Ancestry.com, he is listed as the son of James Mullen and Mary Shepherd. Do you think this is the same person as your George W. Mullen?
Hello, the McKnight family that you maintain is also some of my husbands family. When my mother in law passed we found many old pictures with the McKnight name and other than the ones that are my husbands direct line I would like to see them go to some family. If there is any connection here you can contact me through Find A Grave Thanks Kayla D

I truly wish I could have found her stone. I believe that cemetery was in the path of a tornado a couple of years ago which caused most of the damage and flooding.
Peace for the new year!
