Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a Georgia Tann (Black Market Baby seller) adoptee who searched for over 45+ years for my Birth Parents. In August 2011, with the help of Carolyn Whitaker, I found my birth Mother. I have since joined Ancestry and taken a DNA test in hopes of finding my Birth Father, who at some point in 1946-1947 was in Memphis, Tennessee where I was born. Unfortunately, my Mother (Frances Pauline "Cookie" Herring Robinette) died in 1981. I am still searching. My birth name was Herring (Mother's maiden name)no Father listed. My tree on Ancestry is now private as I have added DNA clues to my POSSIBLE birth Father. I believe he may have been a Powell from Mississippi (a Lieutenant in the Army Air Corp?). I am interested in Herring as well as Siskie/Siskey; Leahey; Phillips; Rumley; Leach & others. I believe Find A Grave provides a wonderful service to all who have ancestors who should be recognized.

Keep looking
I too, was adopted. I searched for many years and found my birth father first (thru my birth grandmother who was my first contact). After finding my birth father, I located two full siblings and 5 half siblings! It was an amazing journey I have never regretted. Found my birth mother 10 years after my birth father and found another 6 half siblings. KEEP LOOKING....its well worth it and good luck to you....

Hi and good Morning Karen.
Links and data added.
If they are family/friends and you would like to maintain their memorial I will be happy to transfer them to your caring hands.
Best regards, Bud

Thank you so much for sending the name of Fielding Harrison's wife. I appreciate your taking the time to write. I have placed a memorial for her, of course I do not know where either of them are buried. Again thank you for being a member of Find A Grave -- we can all help each other. Have a Merry and Blessed Christmas.

P.S. They also misspelled John Sullenger's name as Sullinger. See the Memorial for John Sullenger

Wilford Sullinger
I believe Wilford's last name should be spelled Sullenger as per the relationship to his mother and Father John and Catherine Lincoln Sullenger. See the death certificate I have posted on their memorial.

Adam Harvey M. Sellers
I noted that you left a memorial for Adam Harvey Sellers that noted you were a 4th cousin, 3x removed. Could you be more specific by providing some names? Adam Harvey Sellers is my great grandfather.
