Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been climbing around
on my Family Tree, swinging
on it's branches, and digging
at it's roots for over
30 years, (since 1975).
I have been widowed since 1991, retired in 2005.
I LOVE Find-A-Grave. It is a wonderful
asset to the genealogy world.
If I've created a record that someone
needs to correct, update or add
information, please let me know and
I'll be glad to add your information
for you;... or if the person is your
direct family member, and you would
like to have me transfer "ownership"
of that memorial page to you, please
let me know...If that person is not
directly related to me and they are
directly related to you; I will be
glad to transfer their memorial to
you. However, I want to note:
Nearly all of the memorials that I
have created are connected to my
family tree and are a result of a
lot of years hard work and research.

To all the members who have been
kind enough to transfer "ownership"
of my family members to me....
Find A Grave is one of my favorite
It has given me a place that I can
remember my loved ones and honor
their memory.

If you have time, please leave a flower
for my dear husband, Roy E. Hughes.

I just lost my Daddy & Momma
within 3 weeks. Please be patient,
I am way behind in answering request.

transfer request
Thank you for all you do for the findagrave community--creating and managing memorials and helping people with genealogy queries.
Would you mind transferring my grandparents' and great grandparents' memorials to me? I am also curious about how we are related.

Prudence Amelia Baggett Moon
I saw your question about Prudence Baggett.
According to the Book "The History of Dark Corner" by John B. Bailey, Prudence WAS the sister of Jackson Baggett. She married John Willingham Moon in 1843.

Deviney Cemetary
LoRetta, is it possible to get permission to visit the Deviney Cemetary? I'm visiting from Florida & would like to visit John McFarland's grave. I've heard in the past that the cemetary is on private land but I don't know if that is correct.

RE: ancestry family tree
Thank you for sharing your tree with me. It's amazing. It will take me a long time to go through it.

Byars connection?
Hi Ms. Hughes,

There is a Danny Wayne Byars buried at Sharon Memorial Cemetery in Charlotte N.C., as well as the Dorothy Byars-Caldwell. Do you know of a family connection between the two? I'm trying to find the parents of Danny.

Thank you,
Christi Crawford-Partee

I love reading the stories that were handed down from our ancestors. My direct ancestor was Barbara, Maria's sister. I have just gotten back to researching this side of my family and am finding some things that I need more information before I can be sure I have the right people., so I will keep searching. Thanks again for posting this information. Debbie Bell
