Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been researching my families for over 30 years. Currently, I'm trying to scan & share a large collection of old family photographs and documents that have come to me from various relatives, mostly my late grandmother.

As I scan & prepare the photographs, I'm trying to post as many as possible to findagrave for others to enjoy. Especially the very old ones. Some that are labeled are not of known family connections so I'm also researching the names in an attempt to identify them.

One that I am very proud of is Jesse Elton McEwen, buried at Palms Woodland Cemetery, Miami-Dade Co FL. It took a fair amount of research to figure out that he is probably not related, but simply a neighbor of an ancestor in Carroll Co GA. I've created a memorial for him with the information I collected. Please visit his site and show him some love.

Another memorial that I'm very proud of is for my ancestor, William Francis Marion Nobles, who died as a prisoner of war at Camp Douglas IL. His final resting place is Oak Woods Cemetery, Chicago, Cook Co IL. Please visit him also.

I hope you enjoy visiting my paternal great grandfather, Hilborn Whit Hulsey. My maternal grandfather, Rev Virgil Sizemore, preached his funeral before there was a family connection. My parents were only 10 years old and I don't think they met until a few years later. If you know any of the people mentioned that aren't linked, please let me know.

Surnames I'm connected to include: Ashworth, Barnett, Beam, Black, Burks, Cates, Clore, Crow, Dickson, Dunson, Gilbert, Hendrix, Hulsey, Leathers, Lowe, Lyle, McBrayer, McGlathery, Meadors, Mobley, Mote/Motte, Nobles, Pate, Parr, Pinson, Reid, Sanders, Sizemore, Stanford, Steele, Stephens, Tomme, Vining, Waldrop, Williams, and others.

Places I'm particularly connected to include: Laurens Co SC, Henry & Clayton Co GA, Carroll & Haralson Co GA, and Blount & Cullman Co AL.

Re: Leland Schiller Dickson # 128241410
Greetings, Debbie
I'm Milton Wayne Hawkins ( # 48289279 ). I have sponsored Leland Schiller Dickson. He is closely and directly related to my Step-father & thus to me; both pioneer families are now deceased. I spent many summers with him in Marathon, Texas & recall attending his funeral. Again, his name is LeLAND SCHILLER DICKSON ( # 128241410 ). I would be most grateful if you would be kind enough to consider transferring his memorial to my safe keeping and for accurate updating. Thanking you in advance, I remain, Milton Hawkins

Token you left for Traci Fields
Because of you and other wonderful findagrave friends, Traci now has 5,673 flowers/tokens, and her birthday is still almost 3 weeks away. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! We appreciate you so much.

I'm in awe! To show you more of what Traci was like, I posted the following on her memorial page,

"Traci, my angel, I can see the big grin on your face for all the flowers you're receiving on your memorial page. You're telling me, "Mom, why are you so surprised there are so many good people in this world? You should have known that....." "You're right, sweetheart, I should have known".

Traci was a person of strong faith, and GOD took excellent care of her, and helped her through all her hardships! Her faith never waivered.

We've received an outpouring of so much love for Traci. You are all a blessing.

Sharon (Traci's mom)

Reids from Coweta and Haralson co. Ga
Hi Debbie, I was hoping you might have some info on My Reids..I read that you had been doing research for a while, and it never hurts to ask..My great-great grandmother was Rebecca Reid Payton, in 1880 she was in Coweta Co. Ga. by 1900 she was in Haralson Co Ga. We believe James Riley Reid, they called him Dink, was her brother..Have you ever heard of them? Thanks, Carol

RE: New Waldrop grave added
His legal name probably is Billy, I'd have to ask him. And I do believe that is the correct birthday

RE: New Waldrop grave added
Ok I'll change it when I get a chance.

Yes, PJ and Victoria's son Bill Waldrop is my grandfather, his daughter Tina is my mother. PJ and Victoria lived in a house just up the road from that cemetery. Taze Waldrop lived across the street from them.

I'm not sure if Bill will be listed under Bill or William. He is still living in Anniston, AL with his wife June Waldrop (nee Roach).

New Waldrop grave added
Hi Debbie, I am Preston James Waldrop's great grandson. I added his memorial with a gravestone photo, memorial # 138466947. I added the cemetery as Antioch Baptist Church cemetery in Oxford Al, but it appears that site is already listed as a cemetery in Talladega county. I believe it's actually Calhoun county, but I'll change it if it's incorrect.

RE: Water damaged photos
This is a black and white photo on a canvas. I bought it in 1969. The top part has some water damage. I could take a photo of it and email it to you. Thank you for offering..
