Bio and Links
Bio Photo I enjoy visiting cemeteries, taking photos of the gravestones and statuary. I was so excited when I discovered the FIND A GRAVE website because I finally have a place to use the information I have been gathering.
My special interests are my ancestors' families: McCorkle, Brandon, Locke, McLeod, Coleman, Yeomans/Youmans, Rountree, Gardner, Webb, Moore, Brashear, Pitts, Hall, Forney, Hoke, Bergner, Balfour, Abernethy, Givhan, Johnson, Mobberley, Potts, Pegram, Bumpass, Matthews, Perry, Coats, Jenkins, Dorsey, Pope, Chapman, Dixon, Porter, Sandifer, Dickinson, Loughlin, Wallette, etc.
Recently I have begun research of my husband's family and am interested in the Landrum, Carter, Pruitt, Redmond, Music, Wilkie and King families.
My profile photo is of the real "Little Marie." She was Marie Chapman Senyard, daughter of Mary Ethel Brashear and Dr. Oscar Chapman, sister of Elmo Mobley Chapman, and wife of Faye Senyard. She was my grandmother Alice McCorkle Coleman's first cousin, and, though I never knew her, I know that she, like many other members of our family, was very interested in preserving her family's history and heritage, as I am. I use her picture to honor her. This picture is courtesy of Moses M. Coleman, Jr., my father.
Much of the personal family info that I have been able to add to my family memorials comes from the book "Granny Bess" which contains historical info, letters, newspaper articles, and photos of the McCorkle, Brashear, Moore, Webb, Dorsey, Johnson and related families.
Two other excellent sources of information for Moore family research are the book "Rodeham Moore of Patrick County, Va - His Descendants and Known Kin" by Merle Moore, and The Association For The Descendants of Rodeham Moore. The Association is a national organization and has an internet web site.

Is Sheldon Perkins Smith (# 12272311) your relative? I was wondering if you would consider transferring management, but if you prefer to keep him that's fine too.
Thanks either way,

RE: Howell Family in Jacksonville City Cemetery
Thank you so much for the information. I went to Jacksonville City in April and found a few family members. It is very large and was just hoping to be able to find them quicker. Someone said I could possibly find some information at the library. I'll have to try that someday. I about a 2 hour drive so it would be a day trip to the library. Thanks again and hope you have a great week. Donna Wilson

RE: Howell Family in Jacksonville City Cemetery
Thank you so much for the information. I will try to contact the city hall and ask. My dad is getting up in years and is trying to visit all the relatives graves. Thank you for all the hard work you and your husband puts into this website. I know it is alot of time and I'm sure you enjoy doing this. Once again, Thank You.

Howell Family at Jacksonville City Cemetery
Hello, I was wondering if you knew the Section and Row that the Howell's are located. These are relatives and we have not been able to locate their graves yet. It looks like you have posted the pictures for all of them. They are Willie Mae Lester Howell, Lineous H. Howell, Melba Howell Hayward and Leonard Howell. Any help you can give me is greatly appreciated. We are planning on visiting Jacksonville City again in about a week. Thanks so much and have a great weekend. Donna Wilson Find A Grave #48230519

I never saw. Info was entered from books. Did they just check GOM or did they check Myrtle Hill also. There were many mistakes between these two cemeteries. They are next to each other.
