Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am not ignoring photo requests that I have accepted and let lapse. It has been either really rainy or really hot here. And it is also the start of Cross Country season and JFL Cheerleading. And canning season!! I am busy chasing children around the country side when not putting up goodies for the winter! :D

It doesn't really matter what one puts in the bio section because 99% of the time, no one bothers to read it anyhow!! :D

But for the record,

I am pretty liberal with my transfers,

The majority of my memorials are made with 2nd hand information so please feel free to send me corrections (as long as they make sense that is),

Cite the source and I will add obituaries (but I will edit out living relatives if it is a recent death),


I don't mind checking to see if there is more information on said person at the local library (depends on where the funeral took place)...within reason...I have my own family to chase down (living and otherwise!).

Samuel & Louiza
Briefly, Samuel has three mother-in-laws. each being the spouse of John Shipley on paper.
Mary Rawlings marriage 24 May 1847,
Marry Rolland both from Ancestry and Illinois documents.

Mary Rollins as mother on State of Illinois Certificate of Marriage Samuel S. Hazlett and widow Mrs Louisa (Shipley) Davis. 30 Jan 1883

Would you consider removing Louiza's mother and father from her memorial.

Louiza is the mother of Melinda, plus four sons.
only 2 sons can be linked
I am glad the three mother-in-laws surfaced, there is work ahead for me any way. I need the documented line. I sorry this answer took so long. Should I ever find the right Mary I will try to update you. Jean

108346005 Louiza Shipley
Recently, I linked Hazlett/Hazelett/Haslet familys. The parents (John Shipley and Mary Rolland) on the above number for Louiza "Eliza" Shipley are not the same that I found years ago. The marriage records in "Illinois marriage to 1850" John Shipley married 24 May 1847 to Mary Rawlings in Illinois, Lawrence County.
I have Rollands in my tree but limited to Arkansas. Will you remove Mary Rolland and replace her with Mary Rawlings. Thank You.

Thornton Ford and Marie M Ford
Thornton and "Marie" are my Great Grandparents and it should be noted that while her name on the tombstone says Marie, her name was actually Isa she just didn't like that name, her full name was Isa Marie Menders Ford.

RE: James Murray
Hi Tori,
I am definitely fishing to see if James is there and will delete his memorial if he isn't on her memorial. Logic tells me since she lived all over with her children since his death in 1877, that she went BACK to Illinois to be buried with her husband. She also has a son who died in PA who is buried in that cemetery. Thanks for your help. Jill MacRae

RE: Manerva Adcox
I added the photos. Curious about the spelling of the last name - did it get changed from one generation to the next? I know that happens.

I needed to get out and walking after this horid winter. My family cemeteries are too far away, so I kind of adopted Oakland and Rosedale, since it's only a few blocks from my house. I've been trying to get as many photographed as have memorials.

I have corresponded with some very interesting people along the way. Lots of history in Oakland.
