Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born and raised in Memphis, Shelby Co., Tennessee, and still live in Memphis.

I am posting information on Find A Grave in order to honor and celebrate the lives of my ancestors and relatives, as well as others who have gone before me. I have even included postings and photos of tombstones of families who are not connected to me, but whose tombstones were of beauty and interest.

One of my favorite quotes regarding genealogy is the following:

"It is a revered thing to see an ancient castle not in decay. But how much more it is to behold an ancient family which has stood against the waves and weathers of time." --Francis Bacon

I am researching the following families: LOVE, WALLACE, SANFORD. AKERS, ROBERTS, GARDNER, ZEIGLER, & MARVEL. These are the family names of my eight great grandparents. I am also researching my husband's family: MAITLAND, HAMRICK (HAMBRICK), CRUM, ARCHER, LATHAM, GLENN, CATHEY, & POWELL.


Other families in my husband's ancestry are: WYATT, BRILEY, MOORE, CHIPMAN, SKIFF, HOWLAND, SNOW, & HOPKINS.

Please feel free to visit my Public Tree at The tree name is LOVE/MAITLAND FAMILY TREE.

Also, please feel free to use any of the photos that I have added to Find A Grave in any way you see fit. It is my wish to help others in their quest for more information on ancestors and relatives and to help them share that information wherever they wish. I do not feel that I 'own' the photos. I would not have placed them on the internet if I felt that way.

Daniel Stark
Thanks for bringing to my attention that the date was added on wrong. Yet why did you think you have the right to be rude, while letting me know the date was wrong? Your rudeness,most Stark researchers have this and if you have proof let me know. There was no need for that. People make mistakes, while adding info.Daniel is my 6th great grandfather, and also his brother James. I never said I was a Stark researcher. Just my family of Stark's and we don't leave rude message but politely let someone know that the date was add on wrong. Maybe you were having a bad day and took it out on a date, did it make you feel soooooo big? Well I am calling you out and taking you back down to size.

Thomas Akers
My records show that Thomas Akers, Sr. is my 5th great grandfather. I descend from his son Thomas Akers (Acker), Jr through his daughter Tabitha who married Isaiah Vermillion.

I am trying to find information on Thomas Akers/Acker, Jr. Can you help me?

Thank you! :)

RE: Claude Giles - Willow Mount Cemetery in TN
Thanks for the feedback.
It should have been the cemetery in Bedford county.
Changes have been made.

Cecelia Lee Love Armistead
Hi Carla

I am doing some historical research on the Armistead family and those who married into the family. I know that Cecelia died in Mobile, AL (or near about that location). I was trying to find her grave. Do you know if she was buried in Mobile? I have had trouble finding any information on her.

I appreciate any information you can help me with.

Photo request
I have no recollection whatsoever of asking for a photo request. But, since I do a tremendous amount of research it is possible. Thanks.
