We became interested in the Findagrave site a couple of years ago when I was searching for my grandfather's grave. I knew approximately where he was buried but I had no memory of ever seeing his grave, as he died many years before I was born. We came across Findagrave and I found exactly what I was looking forů and much more! Since that time, graving has become a hobby for both of us.
This is a great website and a great way to preserve (and learn about) some of our family history! My wife has a passion for the older tombstones that seem to be forgotten. This interest was sparked by her grandmother and the many walks and conversations that the two of them had in the old cemeteries in Northwestern Tennessee where many ancestors were buried. The search still continues for a great-grandmother, LuLu (Lou?) Mefford Pettit who died in Clermont Co. Ohio about 1906. Her approximate age was 32 years.
We are certainly glad to share, add, or correct any family information that we have posted on this website. It is our hope that this website will continue to grow and provide historical family information for all... information which might not be otherwise available.
Jay Deshler Hello. I was out at Valley View Cemetery getting a pic very close to this stone and noticed that the dates on his memorial were unknown, so I went ahead and took a pic so his memorial can be updated.
Thomas Brundige Very impressed and would take the opportunity to say thanks for your efforts on the Brundige family. We have been working on the family to help our cousins by marriage. Respectfully request use of the photographs in the memorials to document the efforts on Ancestry and a book that we are compiling for future generations. Respectfully, Larry and Carole Morrison - Maumelle, Arkansas.
RE: T.B. Howard Thank you. That would be wonderful to share information. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. My mother's cousin, Royce Howard, has been doing genealogy on the Howard family for more years than I have, so you may have corresponded with him as well. I look forward to hearing from you.
T.B. Howard Below is some information for the bio of Thomas B. Howard. He was a brother to my g-g-grandfather, James Richard Howard. I don't know anything about his life other than what I have been able to glean from my genealogy searches.
If you are family, I would like to know more about him. Thanks.
My line of descendancy is James Richard to his son, William Amos, to his son, Casey Lois, to his daughter, Nannie Oleta Howard Stewart.
