I have been working on my own family tree since about the Fall of 1999. I started this project by doing transcripts of my own family's cemeteries and taking photos of the stones. I am sure this is how most folks get started doing this kind of thing.
On my father's side, I am researching these names; Campbell, Clouse, Donalson, Edwards, Elam, Engle, Faris/Farris, Gillum/Gilliam, Harris, Hodge/Hodges, Hutton, Keck, Owsley and Riddle at this time. These surnames are from Virginia, Kentucky, Tennessee and Texas, with ties to England, Germany and Scotland.
On my mother's side, I am researching these names; Cantley, Clay, Gibbs, Rorrer/Rohrer and Turner at this time. These surnames are from Kentucky, Pennsylvania, Virginia and West Virginia, with ties to Switzerland, Germany and England.
You have my permission to use any photos posted here as long as it used for research and not for profit.

Loma Pearl Bamburg headstone Ed - There is no picture of a headstone for Loma Pearl (Hobbs)Bamburg. Does she not have a headstone? There is a picture shown of several headstones with one centered, but I can't read it. Is that Loma Pearl's.
James P. Scoggins Correction Ed, Correction, the lady who also has a memorial of James P. Scoggins and Nancy Swafford has them buried in Rockwall, Texas. Not Sunnyvale, as you have your memorial. Which one is correct? The two memorials even show two different headstones with same birth/death dates?? Thanks, Wendell G. Walker
James P.Scoggins & Nancy Swafford Hi Ed, I noticed you have a memorial for James P. Scoggins and Nancy Swafford.(from Tn.) You have them buried in Sunnyvale, Dallas Co. Texas. Your memorial is dated 2006. There is another memorial posted for James P. Swafford and Nancy Swafford by a lady dated in 2014. She has them buried in Sunnyvale, Dallas Co. Texas. I do not know which memorial is correct, yours or the other person's. Please check and confirm where James P. Scoggins and Nancy Swafford is buried? Either your burial place or the other persons is incorrect. Thanks, Wendell G. Walker
