Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have just seriously started researching my family tree in 2010. Surnames included in the AL/TN/OH/NC/SC/WV/PA areas, Craig/Norris/Gatlin/Edwards/ Noble/Hendrix/Sanderson and more. From my sister-in-law's side in the WV/TN areas, Wiley/Frye/Dingess/Nelson/Amburgey and more.

I wish I had realized when I was a youngster the importance of just sitting down awhile and listening to my grandparents and family speak of previous generations. Now, working with my family's genealogy brings a sweet and calming peace to my life. Just walking in the cemeteries does the same.

I consider my work with Find-A-Grave, a tribute to my loved ones, family and friends, from long ago to the near present. I love them all dearly, whether I knew them or not. I can thank each and every one of them for playing a part of my existence and for that I am grateful. My work now is a small price to pay for that gift...

As for any photographs that I have taken during my many trips through various cemeteries... any may be used, downloaded, and/or shared in any POSITIVE way, shape or form. I know how excited I get when I find a photo I haven't seen. I DO NOT invoke any copyright restrictions on mine and am so happy to share. That's what life is all about. I do however ask that you please use my name as your source if you choose to copy a photo that I have taken.

I can be contacted at:

RE: Picture (JOHN NELSON GREGG SR. #96248482)
Hi Sherry, On the John Nelson Gregg Sr. Memorial I must have missed typed John Junior is in Blacks Chapel for sure. John Sr seems to be in question some say Tennessee I've been told Mississippi. In all truth I doubt there is any certainty. But to correct what must have been my previous mistake it is Definitely John Nelson Gregg Jr. in the Blacks Chapel Cementery. Thanks for all that you do.

Margaret Cansada Foster
Margaret Foster married my ggg grandfather, William Coggin, in 1849. They were married in Lauderdale County, Alabama. Does anyone have any information on this family?

Wrong birthdate
At the bottom of the information about Uncle Franklin, the date of his birth is listed as 1933 instead of 1913. That should be corrected.

Samuel Scott
This Samuel Scott is not the one that married Christina.
This one lived in Amelia County later. His father, George died in 1814.

Hi Sherry:
Since I did not know them and you were friends, felt you should have them.

Hi, The picture you posted on John Nelson Gregg in Liberty Cemetery is actually John jr. not Sr.there is another photo of him attached to Mason Mannasa Gregg if you would like to see it. John Sr. was killed in Mississippi during the war and only a marker not his actual grave is at Liberty. John jr. is buried at Blacks Chapel. Thanks for the work you are doing though.

RE: Photo Request for ALLEN
I was informed from LeRoy Ellis that there were no memorial stone in the cemetery for either of the ALLEN's. He told me there was a section for unmarked graves and it was possible there were in there. So I removed the request as he had searched the cemetery two times. Thank you for your interest and your time.
