Bio and Links
Bio Photo Married to Ben. Hobbies are genealogy, photography, scrapbooking, reading. I'm a retired social worker so believe strongly in family connections and enjoy meeting new cousins or helping people new to genealogy get started. I feel that finding the final resting place of our ancestors gives some closure to our searches. Because my husband and I are both retired we are free to travel around and take photos, but with current gas prices would need to limit our territory at times. Will be glad to make transfers to relatives of those memorials I've posted.

photo Arthur Pennington III
You have added a photo of the tombstone of Arthur Pennington Jr. to the memorial of Arthur Pennington III. I have added the correct photo but thought you might want to remove the incorrect one.

Sarah Jane Whatley Story
Saw that you could possibly be a descendant of Sarah Jane Whatley Story. Sara Jane is the sister to my 2nd Great Grandfather Byrd Woodward Whatley. B.1852 d. 1933.

Interested in making these connections as asking if you have any other information regarding Sara Jane and Byrd's parents and earlier. I have some of my greataunts bible records that list their Mother as NANCY JANE LOYD (as does Sara Janes death record) but all links on ancestry point to a MARTHA STRONG or NANCY STRONG. Wondering if I am following this line correctly. Thank you for your work in adding this memorial and look forward to hearing from you!

Higginbotham's in Blount County
Laura, I saw the photo you added with some information on Melissa Alabama Gentle Higginbotham, wife of P.W. Higginbotham, buried in Remalap, Alabama. In your notes it lists their adopted son, Albert Preston, biological son of Malissa's brother Clint. I am a direct descendant of Albert, and am looking for information to verify his parentage as Clint and ???? Would you have any information on that?

Lucinda Wyatt and Wm Meredith
Hi Laura, You are listed as the one who maintains Lucinda Wyatt's grave posting. How do we list her as the sister of Rev. William Hoge Meredith? If I recall Lucinda had 15 children.

Hi Laura,

I will be happy to transfer any memorials that I have that you are interested in. The only ones I want to keep are those that are my own family. So just let me know if I have any others you would like.

RE: Shentha, Annette, Nolan

Thanks for the quick reply. Annette and Shenetha were on their way to see us (my family) as we had just returned from 3 years of living in Europe, Dad was in the Army and we were in West Germany for the 3 years. Shenetha was pregnant with her first child, and they might have had to change and go to the way to the hospital as she was due to deliver, we will never know, for the were killed in a head on accident on the way to town, on the road out of Sipsey to Jasper Al, which could have been to see us, which was their original plan.

I have been doing some family research which is how I found Find a Grave, and then their information. Oh, a really big thank you for the work, it was a happy yet sad thing to find their information, but as I was 18 when it happened, and we moved to Illinois right after the funeral, I never knew where they were buried.

I have some info on the Mauldin's, not as much as I would like, I have not researched their side as much as I should, they are on my list of people to get too, so far my tree has about 3,000 folks in it, and I still have a lot to look into.

I would be glad to send you copies of my data, and keep you advise of any from my future searches. My direct email address is dan_perry (at) bellsouth (dot)net.

As to your offer to transfer I would be very happy and honored if you would, I would like to link as many of them as I can.

Kindest regards,
