Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started researching the Rock family in 1995 because my father died when I was very young and I needed to know more about him. Then I found that researching my families made them come alive for me. I am hooked on family research!

Thanks to all who contribute to Find-A-Grave. It is truly amazing how many people give of their time.

Please let me know if you see any mistakes.

The pictures I take are for friends and family to use and no need to ask to copy. If you publish or use on another site please give proper credit due. Thank you.

RE: Henry Allen #11550299
Thank you... I'm sorry I had to ask. All my memorials look quite boring and bare now. I wish I hadn't sponsored all these memorials now... it doesn't seem worth it since so many images are now prohibited.

Hello, can you please remove the article you posted on this memorial? I was almost kicked off Find-A-Grave today because of articles like this being posted. Apparently, they are prohibited here even when they fall within the public domain (as this one does). I was told it was not a legality issue; just a Find-A-Grave policy. As I do not want to lose my ability to post, I am removing all images of vital records (even if they are our family copies) and articles. Thanks for your help with this. ~Evey

Hi Jo,

Alice McCaleb "Mamaw" was the common law wife of my grandfather Dennis Paul Creely from 1940 until his death in 1960 and the only grandmother I knew on my mothers side.
I would enjoy knowing how you are related to Alice and if you transfer Find a Grave sites. I hope you enjoy the photos I've added, I have more...

RE: Ellis Cemetery
I was just looking at your message again and realized I'm not sure I ever replied. If I did, sorry for the repeat! I do this in spurts - I get absorbed in it for a while, then sometimes lay off of it for weeks or even months.

In any event, you're welcome! William Green Ellis is my great, great grandfather. When I first began my genealogy in earnest, about 10 years ago, I turned up some info regarding the old Ellis homestead area later being occupied by a family by the name of Tedder. If I remember correctly, I just did some searches in the area and found a concentration of Tedders on B.W. Johnson Road near Causeyville, Miss. I knocked on the door of a Tedder in the area and nobody was home, but spotted a neighbor who was somehow familiar with the history of the road and took me right to the graves. The homeowner was not home, and I really want to go back an introduce myself sometime. Apparently B.W. Johnson Road was once Ellis Road. The Texas Ellises, who have done so much family research and host a reunion each year, raised funds for the marker that is at the site. Four or five area buried there.

Sorry for the ramble!

It took a long time to to get to this point.
I have some update/correction info for you on one of the Memorials.
I have no real need to fix this error, but I know you folks like to get things right.
You can contact me at:
We need to establish communications before I spend any more time with this circuitous e-mail system.
