Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello, and welcome to my page. I am a Kister by birth, I live in Virginia, with my Husband & a granddaughter that we are raising.
We have two daughters and a total of 4 granddaughters and 1 grandson.
I have lived in Utah, Idaho, California, Washington, Oregon, Alabama and Virginia. We have settled and will stay put here in the Appalachian Mountains, it is just wonderful here.
I discovered the fascinating world of Genealogy and have been researching family history since 1995.
My family on my father's side is originally from Walter, Saratov, Russia. I am part of the second generation born in the States.
I am interested in the Sir names of Kister, Kaufmann, Babcock, Widup, Macbeth, Gettman on my father's side, and Wright, Sweet, Jones, Brady, Cox; Hale; Paulson on my mother's side.
Hubby's side is Morris, Elam, Lightfoot, Coffey, Jeffrey, Koehl.
Also interested in Worley, Barnett, Chaney, Smith, LaMon, Umstead, Cho, Iliff, & Galardo.
When I found the web site, I realized I had to be a part of it all. We actually find graves as a family hobby, we all participate, it's great!
My hubby is interested in the Revolution and Civil wars.
I like to search and add names in local grave yards that are not presently on the database, and finding old obits on the net that hasn't been added as yet.
If anyone finds info that I have submitted wrong, please bring it to my attention and I will correct it right away. Comments and suggestions are welcome. If you can suggest changes or additions to any memorial that I've posted, please don't hesitate to let me know.
If you see a family member or loved one, and wish to have ownership, please don't hesitate to ask.

Your's in grave finding, Barbie :)

RE: Elizabeth McConnell
Yes, Elizabeth Willoughby McConnell is on my husband's line. That would be so sweet of you if you transferred her over. Her memorial is 38445493

Captain Thomas McConnell is really an Ensign - not a captain. I believe I sent you a photo of his military headstone application. They scratched out the word captain and replaced it with Ensign. If I didn't, let me know and I'll email it again.

She was the 3rd wife of Thomas McConnell. They were married December 25, 1835 in Washington county, Virginia.

Thank you,

Steve & Catherine Shelton
Hi! We spent the first 10 years of our marriage near the Blue Ridge Parkway, which we loved- and still love so much. Now we are in New Hanover County, NC, which we are enjoying as well.

Emma Johnson

Find A Grave Memorial# 79704843

Are you related? there is a marker for a Emma Johnson with no dates, but with a relative Willis Teal. Could this be the correct Emma? She is located in the section that is the late 40's and 50's mostly.

Again, many thanks for the transfers,

John and Elizabeth Minnick
Hi Barbie,

You have done a wonderful job of getting memorials made for those of us still searching for our ancestors.

I am a direct descendant of John Minnick
Find A Grave Memorial# 38449258
and his wife Elizabeth Minnick
Find A Grave Memorial# 38448430

Would you please consider transferring them to me as I have quite a bit of history on this Minnick line and could add some more information on the history of this family.

Thanking you for considering this,

Nancy~ (#46892655)

Find A Grave Changes
A friend told me about this change a couple days after this was deployed. I have sent an edit/s to you so I thought maybe you didn't know about it. You might want to pass it on to your friends. thanks!!! ~Peggy

New "Automated" system for "Suggest a Correction/Submit an Edit"

******Please Note******
New System for Memorial Edits deployed by FindAGrave on 12/5/2013

Go to your Contributor/Profile page.
Look in the upper right corner. You should now see a tab called "Edits" - check there to see if any have been submitted to you. Then just review and accept.

Way easier for doing updates to names/dates/places/plot numbers/links. If you don't approve within 21 days it will automatically accept it.

You still will get e-mails to add info to bio section.
