Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello from the middle of nowhere, Texas.

I first started using this site to research my family tree a couple years ago. Then I decided to sign up and actually help contribute. I've always liked going to the cemetery and looking at all the headstones. Some are so creative! I especially like the "Woodmen of the World" stones. I love doing volunteer photos in my area. It's kinda like a treasure hunt to see if you can actually find them.

Currently I am trying to work on my husband's family tree. He is from Mississippi so I can't just go look. So if anyone comes accross any Willards or Franklins in the Yazoo City area, please let me know. I am spcifically looking for Willie Franklin who died about 1965 and his wife Candance Bell Weaver Franklin. She was also married to an Overby at one time and she also died in the sixties.

***Please Note*** If you are requesting transfer or update to any memorial, PLEASE use the "Suggest A Correction" tab on the memorial. Please do not leave the information as a message as it makes it very difficult to do the update.

Do you know if Samuel's parents were Lewis Tolton Coffer and Amanda Elizabeth Henshaw Coffer?
If these are his parents, please reply to me. I have some information to share with you regarding his mother (if she is Amanda). The mother in question was also known as Martha Coffee.

Wanting to know if you would remove some of the grave stone photos from my auntie's memorial. It was transferred to me and I want to post some photo's. There are 2 of each of the same photo's in her memorial. I think her memorial was merged while the other contributor had it.

I would really appreciate it if you would remove some of the head stone photo's so I can post pictures.

Thank you,

Thank you so much! I was able to find info on my great-grandparents buried in Hubbard Texas. With the link of my great-grandmother I have found all types of family members linked to Compere also! My search just became easier!
