Bio and Links
Bio Photo I cannot remember a time when I was not involved in family history. My mother and my paternal grandmother both spent a significant amount of time and energy researching their ancestry, and I grew up helping them. Both left records and files of their life's work with the responsibility to carry on.

I suppose I have been actively involved for myself since 2000, continuing where my mother left off when she passed. In 1992, my husband and I helped to publish (for extended-family use) my mother's research under her direction a book entitled "Blalock Beginnings" covering my maternal lines and centering on the southwest part of Mississippi but including the Plemmons line which led to Tennessee and North Carolina. Parts of this publication are available online with more soon to follow.

This site has been very helpful in linking generations of my ancestors from the Southern States (where my mother was born and spent her youth) to family in the West (where she married and spent most of her life). More than a researcher, I see my role as a bridge builder providing access to the records collected of the past through the efforts of many, to those who will come after seeking for answers.

Diane, I have made the links. Thanks for the info. I will be glad to transfer all of these and any others I posted to you. I go to Liberty a couple of time a year and post cemetery info and photos if they are not posted. Thanks again, Amos

I added her parents as you suggested. I remember trying to find her DOD and not having any luck. I normally don't like to leave a memorial with a blank DOD...David

Hi Diane,

I linked Harley to his parents. I would be glad to transfer management of his page to you, if you like, as I am not related to him.

Yes - date is a typo. I went on and changed Mary's when I did William. I really appreciate you bringing this to our attention.
This message coming from Berea, KY. :) Here a couple days to keep great niece - the freight train going through town with whistle blowing and oh there goes the college bells. As g-niece (6) says when we drive the Cades Cove loop - it doesn't get any better than this - and oh, I'm throwing this in exttra. :)

RE: Sarah Bright Case
Hi, I did some more investigating after work and posted more to Sarah Bright listing. The 1850 Census of Spartanburg SC shows her as 1 year old, I listed 1949 as "new" birthdate. I need to remember death certificates are only as accurate as the informant. Thanks for all your work and information. Debbie

Catherine Bright Price Plemmons
Hi, I posted Death Certificate for Catherine Bright Plemmons with her memorial. It shows her birth as November 23,1837 and death hard to read April 9, 1921. These two sisters it seems were closely born.

Sarah Elizabeth Bright Case
Hi, I have uploaded the death certificate for her as birth and death dates listed on the Mount Pleasant memorial to her. Her Parents Tobias and Rachael McElreath Bright as well as her husband are listed on this. Hope this helps to document the dates I had for her. Thank you,Debbie
