Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was already an avid genealogist, when I attended a family reunion in 1990. It was there I saw a photo over a century old of a distant relative, taken in the town I grew up in, in a state I had moved from ten years earlier.

While I had lived there, I had no idea any relatives had ever been in that area. That was really a catalyst for me. I soon discovered that several ancestors and many relatives were buried within thirty miles of my home town.

I am currently looking for the grave of a GG-Grandmother, who died within ten miles of another town, in another state, where I had lived prior to school age.

In this highly mobile day and age, we move around a lot. As a modern society, it's very easy to lose a sense of our roots. Yet, they are all around us. We need only to acknowledge them, and honor them.

I'll be going back to Evergreen in a few weeks to continue my project there. If you have a location/plot I can do yours sooner, but I'll get to it eventually. I'm proceeding counter clockwise from the SW corner and am about 25% completed. It may get finished this year, but I won't make any promises. Most of the stones need edging before I can take a photo.
