Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Sonya A. Bayles, I was born in Bastrop, La on May 5, 1947. My parents were Ochoa Bayles and Mary Alice Day Bayles. My father was born in La, and my mother in Miami Florida. We moved to Miami when I was 6 years old and I pretty much grew up in Florida. Dad moved around quite a bit and I married a local guy from Gainesville, Ga. who it seems moved around a lot also, so for years I moved a lot. I have 2 sisters, Frances Mae and Amanda Lynn, and 2 brothers Vincent Ochoa and Mark Levi. I belong to The Chruch Of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints and have a great love for family history work, I spend many hours gathering srories, pictures and history of my family. I have 3 sons Enoch Shane Smith, Brannon Levi and Gerald Floyd.
I work in the medical field and also teach classes in CPR & First Aid for the American Red cross in my spare time. Thru the years I have worked at a lot of different things and it took along time for me to find my nitch in life.

I am now retired due to ill health. I spend my time doing phone and email support for newFamilySearch and am really learn a lot more about research and it is a joy to me. I also have more time now to spend time adding memorials to findagrave and also to take more pictures in cemetery.

I enjoy doing family history , working in the garden and long walks on the beach. I enjoy time with my family.

Hello Sonya,
I am looking for information on a memorial that you manage. Do you know how I can find out who this person is? Her parents, etc? A possible obituary? She has the same name and year birth as a friend. Any help is greatly appreciated.
Thank you and Happy Thanksgiving!

Dear Sonya,

I am researching my paternal grandfather's WWI army unit, Company B, 355th Infantry, 89th Division. According to the National Directory of the 355th Infantry, your grandfather was a member of this same army unit. Perhaps are grandfathers knew each other?

I don't know exactly where I'm going with my project, but I'm collecting the photographs of the graves and any other photographs of the men who served with my grandfather in WWI. You posted two photographs under the findagrave post for your grandfather (Find A Grave Memorial# 31098016): the photograph of his grave and a portrait of him during WWI.

In case I ever publish anything, would it be permissible to use your photographs from findagrave? I would greatly appreciate it!

With warm regards,

Bryan Anderson
