My passion is researching and writing family history. The saying "you can't make this stuff up" is true. FAG is one of the tools I use for my research so if I bug you with questions about one of your memorials please forgive me. I am just trying to make sure I have the right person that I am writing about. My family has lived here in Jasper Co, Mo. for about 165 Years, so we have some relatives in almost every local cemetery. As I walk thought them I sometimes take pictures of other stones. Headstones for babies seems to be hard for me to pass by. Most of my memorials are members of my own family and I would like to keep those, but if I have someone in your family I would be happy to transfer them to you. I try and match pictures of stones with infor from Mo. State Archives website. Family names I am researching is Fowlkes, Casey, Hendry, Smallwood, Purcell, and Gary.
William Reade I was wondering where you got the seath date for William Reade as Sept. 1798? His will was probated in Bedford Co., VA in 1790 and most researchers have his death date as 1789. I would appreciate any help you can give.
RE: Bradley family Hello, I sent this same email with some attached photos to the email shown in your profile with a link for my Bradley virtual cemetery which I'm not sure you can open but feel free to try such. Joe Jack Bradley had three wives and three families, two of which were very large so I'm not sure where Mary Dove falls in his tree. Joseph was one of 17 siblings himself. I do have a several page write up with several copied pictures from all the families of Joseph Jackson and how he came to Missouri from Fines Creek, North Carolina after his service in the Civil War which was compiled by my great aunt ( I have a double link to Bradley as two Garner siblings married two Bradley siblings ). If you have not seen such advise and I can mail it to you if of interest but I do not have it electronically available as of yet. I also have 1880 census for Joe's father and mother in Jonathan's Creek, NC and a copy of their 1835 marriage bond witnessed by Stanford's brother, Pleasant but that is as far back in the written documents as I have gone. I think I have found Stanford's parents buried together in northern Georgia but still somewhat speculative so I am very hesitant to post until I can substantiate if ever.
Yes, I am Joe Jack Bradley's great, great grandson via his son Andy Bradley and his grand-daughter Flora Ina Bradley and his great granddaughter Flora Nell Garner. By coincidence and perhaps of interest my brother will be up from New Orleans this weekend to tidy up Joe Jack's parents' Stanford and Liddy Bradleys cemetery (no apostrophe or you will never find such in Cove's Creek) North Carolina which is located on their old homestead at these coordinates...
Thompson Casper Smallwood Hey cousin, I don't suppose you would transfer him to me so that I can add my grandmother and children, would you? Louisa wasn't his only wife, as you know. I'd like to tie him to my line, too.
RE: Martin Family Hello Priscilla! Very exciting to hear from family I don't even know. :) I have been researching my family for more than 12 years now, but I am only able to do it during my spare time. Would love to exchange information with you! Thanks for contacting me. Teri
