Bio and Links
Bio Photo My family came from the Carolinas, Virginia, and Kentucky. What started here as a small memorial group, now as a full-time job ranges into research of many lines. We have fun preserving family history through the many grave markers and memorials of those who are our ancestors across this great nation of freedom. No longer will we allow our history to be destroyed, but rather be preserved here on Find-a-Grave.

With God as my protector, Jesus as my personal Saviour giving unconditional love, and the Holy Spirit as my adviser and guide, I have no fear of the deceiver. Jesus did not die so that we could have a religion, but so that he could have a personal relationship with us if we agree. Satan can do nothing to you without your consent and cooperation. Thank you to Jesus for the powerful strength through his love within me that brings me peace in my soul.

We are holding to the highest standards of research ethics to set the example. God Bless America!

....He looked beyond my fault and saw my need.

..The things that I love and hold dear to my heart
Are just borrowed they're not mine at all.
Jesus only let me use them to brighten my life
So remind me, remind me dear Lord
---Dottie Rambo

SUNSET: The sun has not gone down, it has just gone to the other side. ---Wayne

Here is a prayer I prayed on November 22, 2010, together with a little lady named Lydia that I used to work with whose house was destroyed by Katrina, and who has now gone on to an eternity in heaven:

"Thank you every day Jesus our Savior for favoring us so much with your love and care, but after all that is the main business you are in. We both fully received and soaked in your great miracle of salvation and we love you so much. Help us to see all the opportunities you have for us to show your love in this fallen world of the flesh. For we know, this too shall pass one day and we will be even closer by your side. Thank you for coming to live inside our hearts and lives, as that is a tall order......for the devil does try to make it rough for us at times. Thank you for your loving patience, as we know that it is our job to chase the devil away for he is a defeated foe. Jesus our Savior help us with getting rid of the unbelief which all too frequently can paralyze our faith and block us from receiving the healing and blessings you intend for us, for in Jesus' name we pray with great thanksgiving. Amen"

Jane Wiggins Sherouse
Hi Wayne - I have made the correction as you listed. I am not a close relation of the Sherouse family. There have been several marriages with my Leitner , Proctor and Thigpen families and this is why I follow the family. As you listed, you are a relative and I would be pleased to transfer any of the Sherouse memorial that I control. If you want a transfer, just give me the memorial number and your Find A Grave ident number and I would be pleased to handle. Thanks again for the correcting data. Bob

RE: Luther Ausbon Baxley
No, not related. I did visit the cemetery where he is laid to rest. The cemetery where he is buried is only 10 miles from my home.

Collier family members
Hello Wayne. I noticed that there have been some links made to some of the Collier family members in the Gilly/Gilley cemeteries of which I photographed their headstones. They are not my family members, at least not that I am aware of. I would be happy to transfer management to you if they are your family. Just let me know. I've been trying to find out who the family of Granny Ida Carter Gibson Collier. I don't know what Carter family she came from. I believe it was a Carter family from Scott County, VA. She was born after the 1880 census in 1886. In 1900 she was living with a family in Scott Co. as a servant. We have no idea who her parents were. She had a son named Ewing COllier. I believe her last husband's name was Ewing Collier as well or it was his middle name. From what we understand she did not marry well and was in and out of relationships even with the spouces she married. She was my husbands g-grandmother. Do you know of any Carter families from Scott County? She always told her grandchildren that June Carter was a cousin. But of course we don't really know but it's possible as June was from Scott Co. as well.

Kizzia Boone
Hi Wayne.. I have been doing research on my family off and on for a few years. My Mother is Maxine Cochran, daughter of Maxi Cochran. Maxi was the son of Benjamin E Cochran and Kizzia Boone. I have to James Herring Boone and Levina Lewis as the parents of Kizza Boone. Is this correct? Is James Herring Boone the son of John Boone and Sally Wilkins? I have been told that I am related to Daniel Boone.. But I believe that is not the case. Thank you for your consideration. Pamela Pickett

RE: re: Collie Sherouse
I appreciate that. I knew Collie and the entire family really well. Just talked to his son, Byron, who is my age . We grew up together.

RE: Thanks
Your welcome, I haven't seen John for many years. It made me very sad to hear of his passing. It was always a pleasure to talk with John, as he was one of the nicest fellows that you'd want to meet.
Thank you for being an active Find A Grave member.
