Transfers of Managements
As you may have noticed. I moved a LOT out of my "Maintained" area. Except Sr Alice Muriel Larkin
I will keep her. I am VERY religious in my own way. I pray to MARY ..I have a stature of her in my living room. My Maintained area will only be LARRY'S family and Pieter and Harold and my Brother Gary Marsh. I feel very strongly along those lines. An how my Estate is set up. Thank You!!

Rachel Sisk Clark Yoakum
Greetings Ms. Vivian Yoakum
Thank you so much for the work you have done on our genealogy. I'm related as follows:
John Clark & Ellender Sisk
Isaac & Rachel Sisk Clark
Jess Franklin Yoakum & Martha Morrow
Simon T Yoakum & Nancy Annis Jones
Delphia Mae Yoakum & Dave Roberts
Maedeen Roberts & Julius High
My Father & My Mother

I am responding to the question of American Indian blood. My grandmother has always told stories of our Cherokee roots. I have cross checked the family names against the Western & Eastern Cherokee Rolls. Although, I have not found any Sisk or Yoakum surnames, there are many Clark and Jones surnames. I even found a John Clark on the Emigration Roll of 1817. At this time, I can not say if it is the same John Clark. However, I know that we can not assume that American Indian people didn't have 'white' surnames. I also know that many American Indian people claimed their 'white' blood in order to own property and attempt to escape persecution. Do not be discouraged in the process of your journey.

Doug Bodkin
Henry Gross/Groce
Hi Vivian:

My name is Doug Bodkin. My mother was Dora Fanchon Groce, and her grandparents were Henry Groce and his second wife, Nancy Caroline Cunningham, of Spartanburg County, SC. Henry's first wife was Susan Thomas, and he had children from both marriages.

Henry was b. 1827 in NC, and I believe he was related to the Henry L. Gross of Lincoln County. Henry b. 1827 was a neighbor (near Pauline, Spartanburg County, SC) to Joseph Groce, Findagrave #99850607, who was b. 1805 in NC as well.

I believe Joseph and my Henry were at least cousins, and possibly brothers, because one of Joseph's descendants and I are a DNA match.

I am hoping that you have information on my Henry and his neighbor and relative Joseph, and how they may be related to Henry L. Gross/Groce b. 1722 in Lincoln County. I am anxious to hear your reply.

Sincerely, Doug Bodkin

The "Watergate" ask ME if it was OKAY for them to publish Mr Yoakum's obit in there community paper. I said it was NOT up to ME to say YES OR NO. And that Vivian Yoakum would HAVE to APROVE. So would you please contact FirstService Residential at 703-370-7000. Priya Patel about the issue.

Hi Ms. Yoakum,

We are publishing a book on the history of the built environment in the Rio Grande Valley in South Texas and want to include a portrait photo of Yoakum in our chapter on the building of the 1904 railroad to Brownsville. We're interested in the portrait of Yoakum located at the top of your entry on him. We would need a digital scan of the actual print; it needs to be about 1MB to be of publishable quality. You can view our website at May we send you the relevant paperwork? You can reach me at

Many thanks,
Lori Vermaas

I was wondering if you would be willing to transfer the above person's memorial to me. This was my husband's aunt on his mother's side. Thank you. My number is Sharon (#47794520)

If an error was made in putting obit together, as in grave site location. I think I did it right.
