Bio and Links
My name is Evelyn. I started researching my mothers' Pope Co., AR family after she died in 1990. I have met so many wonderfull people, talking with them over the phone and traveling to AR twice. Many of them remember my Mother "Geri" and it is so good to hear these stories as my mother died when she was 59. My tree has grown over the years and now it is time to become part of Findagrave and list all of her family and relatives in a virtual cemetery. I think I must be related to everyone in Pope Co. I have researched the Teague, Crites, Bradley, Virden, Bewley, Davis', Dixon, Dollar, Duvall, Gipson, Lay, Russell, Thompson names, and many, many more. I am proud of what I have done, only wish my mother was here to help me. She loved her roots with Atkins, Pope Co., AR. I hope she knows how much love and time has come from this. And I hope too that I am able to help others looking for their missing puzzle pieces.
I live in the central valley of Calif. I have been married to my husband for 40 years and we have 2 children. I have a married daughter but no grandchildren yet. Our son is single. My husband is a special person who doesn't mind the time I spend doing this as he knows how much I enjoy it. I love it, I am addicted. I just feel I need to find out all I can and as fast as I can. I know others feel the same way.

Earl Hice
Evelyn -

I saw your message about Earl and his family. I have found a record for an Earl Hice married to Myrtle Rose in 1942 in Franklin Co, Arkansas. Is this the same Earl?

John Chronister and Mary
I am a descendant of John's brother Adam Chronister. Thank you for your record on John and Mary in Find A Grave. I am a volunteer in Polk County,AR. I believe records of those that led the way before us are very important. Adam is supposed to be buried in Franklin Co., AR. I have not found his burial place but continue to search.

Aleta Moore
Got your message. Yes, I have a Facebook. Aleta Moore in Ocala, FL. I have no pics up right now. Or just look under my name, it is easier. You are welcome. I don't know if Shirley has one or not. Take care TTYL. My son is on my Facebook and so are the two other grandkids. My son is James Cohen. Neice and nephew are Brianne Moore and Joe Ruskin. I would not try to befriend them. They are not friendly like I am. They would probably get mad at me for giving their names.

To all
My mother, Earldean Moore, had a very extensive list of all relatives back past the Civil War. My Aunt Shirley Downing, of Jacksonville, FL has them now. Mama and Shirley worked very hard to keep the list up-to-date and complete. I can find out if my Aunt would mind if I left her address so, that you could write her for a copy or some kind of info.

Sierra Humphrey
My name is Sierra Humphrey and I came across my Great grandparents George w Bryan and Francis L Bryan and seen you left flowers. My Great grandma was Kathleen Vera Humphrey(their child) whom practically raised me along with my mother Shelly Humphrey and grandpa David Humphrey. I was curious to how you were related?(: my whole family is from Arkansas as well but my immediate family had moved from Arkansas to California after my great grandfather Alvie Humphrey went to war. -Sierra
