Bio and Links
Bio Photo First and foremost I want to thank Diehard (#46809256) for sponsoring my mother's memorial. I know not who you are, but I do know you are a wonderful person.

My American ancestors include the families of Arnold, Bennett, Berrisford, Black, Branham, Bryant, Butler, Campbell, Cardwell, Dailey, Dickey, Finney, Fraser, Haas, Hales/Hale, Hawkins, Hieatt, Hughes, Jackson, Kendall, Lapsley, Lindsay, Litten, Littrell, Lloyd, Lutz, McBride, McQueen, Meffert/Mefford, Muir, Neal/O'Neal, Pace, Parsons, Perrin, Philips, Pierce, Powers, Pulliam, Redman/Redmon, Roberts, Rucker, Rush, Samms/Sams, Scott, Sheets, Shirley, Sudduth, Stewart, Stuart, Tuley/Tooley, Trout, Vallandingham, Ward, Williams, Wirt, Witt, Woods, and Woolums. I have traced many of these back to their Europeon roots as well. I will gladly share with you any information I have on their births or deaths. Feel free to ask.

I live in Kentucky, where I have spent the majority of my life, and have been doing genealogy for 42 years. As a young girl of 10, I was out walking graveyards, and scouring through court house records while most kids were playing with toys. I remember even before that, I would sit and read the papers my mother had on our family and go through old family albums over and over. I learned all the names of those in the pictures. I have always loved learning new things about my ancestors and their families.

Redmon Baby.
Thank you so much Deb for your work on finding the child of Charles and Ruby Redmon. My grandmother all ways said she was on of 11 siblings.

Re: Elizabeth Honnaker
Hi Deb,

Thanks for your note. I have changed Eliza's maiden name to correspond with your wishes. While I did add some information to her memorial, I don't believe that I specifically removed anything that you had already written. Granted, I did add a little bit of formatting (i.e. bold face type "Additional Information:") to your stuff, but I think that was the only real change. If I am mistaken, however, please know that it was not my intent to erase your work.

My main contribution to the page was the addition of the information pertaining to her guardianship and marriage to Isaac Honnaker. We research archivists tend to let the records speak for themselves, and in this particular case, the records clearly state that her name was Bryan and not Bryant. If you need proof, I have attached copies of the originals to her page. That being said, I can understand why you feel it's important to stick with the 'Bryant' spelling, so I will do just that. (Although, don't you find it interesting that Isaac's surname is spelled differently, yet Eliza's surname is spelled the same way—with the 'Bryan' spelling—in both of these primary sources? It does certainly make one wonder...)

Regardless, I appreciate your holding me to the Find-a-Grave standard of doing things. As you can tell, I'm a relatively new member of the Find-a-Grave community, so I'm still learning how things work around here.

Re: Honnaker Family

I apologize for the delay in my response! If your offer to transfer the rest of the Honnakers my way still stands, I will gladly take you up on it.

Lt. John Van Swearingen

I am a 4 great-grandson of "Van" Swearingen, and have researched the family for 40 years and spent several hundreds of dollars purchasing genealogical books on the family written in the 1800's, his will, his military pension, censuses, et al., and every thing lists his first name as "Van" and he had a brother named "John." These othere people have possibly confused him with his dad.
