Bio and Links
Bio Photo My wife and I live in Huntsville, Alabama and we both graduated from Lee High School in 1964. We have three adult sons, a grand daughter, a great grand son and one spoiled dog. I'm a dedicated fan of The University of Alabama football team; Roll Tide! I served in the United States Navy aboard the destroyer, USS Hopewell (DD-681) and am a Vietnam veteran (1966).

I've been working on my family tree off and on for some time now but, lost a lot of my info during a remodel on our home. I've just started recompiling a little bit at a time since I retired from the cable tv industry in 2010. I stumbled across in searching for ancestors and realized how much work all the contributors have put forth in compiling all this data into these memorials. I like to think of this as showing honor and respect in creating memorials to all the loving, gentle family and friends that have passed on before me. I LOVE REUNITING FAMILIES via the "FAMILY LINK" feature on here.

If one of my memorial creations is a close relative of yours (within four generations), I'll be more than happy to "transfer" it to you. If any of my memorials help anyone in the completion of their family tree, then so much the better. I just hope one of my sons or another family member will assume the management of my memorials after I leave this world to be with my Heavenly Father.

I truly appreciate all your memorial creations and hope I can be of some help to others that are searching for their ancestors. Please be patient with me if I make any mistakes; if so, I'll be happy to make any corrections necessary! May God bless each and every one of you...

RE: Frances Winona Brown Turner (Duplication)
These memorials need to be merged as information will be lost if I simply delete mine.

Please do not use flowers for comments. That is not what the flowers are for.

RE: Lizzie Sarah Sharp (Duplication)
Let me contact the person who uploaded the photo so he can attach it to the other memorial before I delete mine. Obvioiusly Find A Grave doesn't do a very good job of catching duplicates from spreadsheets. Oh well.

Lucy B Spray
Hello my name is Linda Wilder. I am currently researching Cobbs in the Madison County area. I was wondering if this Lucy was Lucy M Bragg? I know that the Lucy I am looking for was once married to Newman C Spray around 1928 and possibly had two sons. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks Linda

Johnny, Hello. As I was searching for family today, I see you have uploaded several photos of your/our family. I have been going back thru and looking to see if photos have been added from when I first discovered Find a Grave abt 8 yrs ago. Anyway, I would be happy to share with you what I have in my tree with you. I have tons of information and photos of the Brewer Family. If you would like an invite to my tree at Ancestry just let me know. I also have a pg on Facebook for all my family lines, it it private so by invite only.
Hope to hear from you.
