Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired Pharmacist; I have been married 42 years and have 4 beautiful children. My wife and I look forward to traveling, antiquing and spending time with our families. I have lived in Tyler, Tx since 1952; originally from Hugo, Ok. Searching family history and going to cemeteries is a hobby my wife and I enjoy together.
Linking familes together from generation to generation is fascinating and challenging.
Remembering past generations seems to have become a lost art and helping others connect with their families is indeed a pleasure.
In addition to photo requests, I always try to take other pictures, especially those with same surnames as the requests. If these are not on FAG
I make a memorial for them.If any are your relatives I will gladly transfer them to you.

RE: Hickman family in Baxter county
Hi, Ira Thomas is my great great grandfather. He married Lizzie Fouts (Elizabeth) and Sarah is one of his sisters. I have been researching this part of my family and have found photos of them. Is your wife on ancestry,com ? If you give me your email, I can invite you to view my family tree. Amazing to think your wife is a distant relative of mine. They did indeed ice fri. Missouri and Baxter county.

Thank you for contacting me.

Hickman family in Baxter county
Thank you so much for the photos posted of some of my Hickman family in Baxter county, Arkansas. I live in England now and have started researching my family tree just today. I'm amazed to have found photos of tombs where my great grandparents and their parents lay to rest. Thank you!

Oral History by Edward M. Everidge

I was looking through some information on Choctaw freedmen and came across the name of Everidge which was familiar to me.

Edward Everidge mentioned the Everidge Cemetery in his oral history prepared for the Indian Pioneer Papers so I thought I would look for it in the database of Find A Grave and was pleasantly surprised to see it.

Thought I would pass this information along just in case you were not aware of the document.
