I enjoy visiting cemeteries, taking photos of the gravestones and statuary. I was so excited when I discovered the FIND A GRAVE website because I finally have a place to use the information I have been gathering. |
My special interests are my ancestors' families: McCorkle, Brandon, Locke, McLeod, Coleman, Yeomans/Youmans, Rountree, Gardner, Webb, Moore, Hanby, Smith, Holt, Gentry, Brashear, Pitts, Hall, Forney, Hoke, Bergner, Balfour, Abernethy, Givhan, Johnson, Mobberley, Potts, Pegram, Bumpass, Matthews, Dozier, Perry, Coats, Jenkins, Dorsey, Pope, Chapman, Dixon, Porter, Sandifer, Dickinson, Loughlin, Wallette, etc.
Recently I have begun research of my husband's family and am interested in the Landrum, Corbett, Carter, Copeland, Rentz, Pruitt, Redmond, Music, Wilkie and King families.
My profile photo is of the real "Little Marie." She was Marie Chapman Senyard, daughter of Mary Ethel Brashear and Dr. Oscar Chapman, sister of Elmo Mobley Chapman, and wife of Faye Senyard. She was my grandmother Alice McCorkle Coleman's first cousin, and, though I never knew her, I know that she, like many other members of our family, was very interested in preserving her family's history and heritage, as I am. I use her picture to honor her. This picture is courtesy of Moses M. Coleman, Jr., my father.
Much of the personal family info that I have been able to add to my family memorials comes from the book "Granny Bess" which contains historical info, letters, newspaper articles, and photos of the McCorkle, Brashear, Moore, Webb, Dorsey, Johnson and related families.
Two other excellent sources of information for Moore family research are the book "Rodeham Moore of Patrick County, Va - His Descendants and Known Kin" by Merle Moore, and The Association For The Descendants of Rodeham Moore. The Association is a national organization and has an internet web site.

Yes, he is my Mother's brother. My Mom is 91 and lives in New Jersey. She is the last remaining sibling or spouse in this family. I do have additional family information.

Greetings! Yes, he is my Mother's brother. My Mom is 91 this year. She is the only one remaining of her parents and 6 siblings, and their spouses. I am catching up on some family history this summer. I have some pictures to add as well. Have a great weekend! :)

I want to thank you for an entry you added in april for my husbands great grandmother, adelaide golden.. If i had not seen that on ancestry i may not have ordered the death certificate. It confirmed it is her.. I had lost track of her in 1935.. Some relatives thought she passed in 1937.. They were correct! Thanks again..sheila conroy
