Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been researching my family for several years beginning with not much information as no one else in my family lives in the past as much as I do. My father was from Ohio and my mother from Florida. The families are so spread apart we seem to have lost track of the old ones. I don't want them to be forgotten. I know where many are buried and I visit when I can. I am interested in Teners, McGovneys, Wickerhams, Collins, Copelands, and Platters from Adams County Ohio. Williams, Prescott, Kersey, and Deen from Appling County Georgia; Howards in Macon County, NC and Georgia.

Please add your stories if you know anyone I have listed. If you have any corrections or additions please let me know. Let's make our ancestors live again.

Please use any photograph I've posted. If you are looking for a grave in a cemetery in north Florida or south Georgia I will try to help. I have created memorials for people who are not my family and I will be happy to transfer them.

I find that cemeteries are pleasant places to visit, peaceful, and usually I can browse the graves without seeing anyone else. I would have taken a lot more pictures of headstones over the years if findagrave had been around.

Tammie (Pomeroy) Elwell
Hello Gail, thank you for the edit, I must list her given name as it appears on the headstone "Tammie", despite that being a nickname naturally for Tamesin. If you could revise your edit so that you aren't changing that part I will accept it right away. Any discrepancies from headstone to actual must be discussed in the bio area. Thanks so much! Jim

You are correct, this is a cenotaph. I will change the memorial on my end. Thanks for the information!

Mary Thomas
So you said you found some clippings in your grandfather's papers. So how is he related to Capt. John B. Thomas?
Capt. was my gg grandfather, Julia was his first wife and not related to me. He remarried and his 2nd wife, Martha was my gg grandmother.
Mary was my gg Aunt on Capt. side.

Gail, are you related to James McGovney, Sr. of Lisburn, Ireland? His father's name was Thomas. He married Agnes Nancy Crockett. They had ten known children; five sons and five daughters. Descendants lived in Virginia, West Virginia, Ohio (many stayed in this state), Indiana and Illinois. They have entwined several times with my ancestors from Adams County, Ohio area. Let me know if have brick walls, perhaps I can assist you in breaking them down. God Bless. Mary

John Tener
If you study this John Tener family as long and hard as I have, you will see that John Tener was not born in Germany. None of his family were born in Germany. They are the Turner family of Prince Georges Co., MD. His family is closely related to the Turners of Anne Arundel Co., MD. The names Danner, Tanner & Tener are simply variations of the French name "Turner". My Tanner family comes from the true German "Huguenot" Danners from southern Germany and Switzerland. John Tener's family comes from the English "Walloon" Turners from Belgium or Luxemberg. This is exactly where Walloons get confused with Huguenots. Although the Turners came to America from England, this is the only possible explanation (other than simple error) for the 1880 census entry mentioning Germany. John Sr. Tener was probably born in Prince Georges Co., Maryland, USA, a son of William Turner & wife Ann Maynard. Sincerely, Landon Doyle Tanner

Battle of Natural Bridge
Gail, You asked me if B. A. Morris was at the Battle of Natural Bridge. I do not know, but it is possible because he lived very close to Tallahassee. I will let you know if I find out that he was there.
