Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am married and retired, probably have too much time on my hands, but would like to make any contributions I can to aid in the genealogy and ancestry searches of our family and anyone interested in their own searches. This has become a passion for me and I really have enjoyed those I have become acquainted with along the way.

I want to thank the folks who make Findagrave possible; this is such a worthwhile endeavor. God bless everyone involved.

Hi, Martha!
As per request,in regard to Lois B Pinegar #89782344, I have the following info on her father Thomas Jefferson Batsel (my 2nd great grandfather) He was b. abt 1867 in KY/ TN. He passed away 19 October 1928 in Oakville Sanitarium of TB in Oakville, Shelby, TN. Burial at Forest Hill Cemetery. I'm assuming Midtown location.

I have had no luck on Find A Grave, finding him.
Thank you, for transfer of Lois' memorial.

Lois B Pinegar
Hi, Martha!
Me, again... This is in reference to Memorial #89782344 Lois B Pinegar. She was my great grand aunt. I have add info for her. I don't think it would be appropriate to request management of her memorial.I'll trust your judgement on that.
Her parents were: Thomas Jefferson Batsel (I haven't found his memorial, yet) and Florence Myrtle Byars #89782230.
Lois "Nannie" Batsel Pinegar was born in Kentucky 14 July 1895. She died 13 July 1978 in Memphis, Shelby, TN.

RE: Adding family
It is correct, our parents divorced and she remarried. I wanted to link them but they weren't married when they died . Thank you so much for helping.

Adding family
I was trying to add my family that wasn't here and link to family that was here and for my sister, Michelle Lea Payne, it said that it was under review. I'm not sure who does this or how, but I was adding our parents. Just letting you know in case you review it since you added and her grave photo, and thank you so much for that.

I was updating my status of this individual and found two markers for the same individuals in the cemetery at Hillcrest. This Record was added: Feb 20, 2014 Find A Grave Memorial# 125396540 . Because yours was the first one entered is the reason I contacted you. If you need to contact me directly my email is macdiedrich(AT)
