Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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.

Mesquite Cemetery - Ebrite Section
Dear Ed,

I may have already thanked you for posting the photographs of my infant uncle's headstone and footstone: Pinkney C. M. Wilson. My gr-gr-grandfather, also buried there with only a footstone left when I visited, purchased the plot for the family's use when Pinkney died - who was his first grandchild. There are several different surnames in the plot, but all are direct relatives:

Wilson, Brisendine, and Coats (thought the Coats headstone was not there anymore when I visited in the 1990's).

In plots scattered about the cemetery, are cousins:
Bennett, Paschall, Caldwell, Futrell and more

Sincerely and Gratefully yours, Lynn
