Bio and Links
Bio Photo NOTE: I have included a number of photos with my memorials. They are my property or others have graciously granted me permission to use them here. I do not mind if you use them in your personal research, so long as you credit me (Ramona S. at as the owner. Also, I do not give my permission for anyone to post any picture from any of my memorials at any other website or in any other publication.

FindAGrave is a wonderful resource, and I am grateful to all those who have posted bios and provided photos.
My mother instilled in me a strong desire to learn more about my family roots. Her own mother died during my mother's infancy. Family circumstances were such that Mom knew very little about her mother's family or background and she always yearned to know more. Mom is in heaven now, yet I feel her guiding presence as I learn more about our family.

Ellen Goodpasture
Hi Ramona! It's been a while! I have been doing some digging with Ellen and her daughter Pearl. I have found that Ellen was married a total of 3 times. My Grandmother had told my Mom this before as well and the things I have found on confirm it. She was married to a Joshua M. West, like you said. Then to Herman Berg in 1888, and after Herman died she was married a third time to Ira G. Leonard. That is how I found her in 1940 census, and also in the Illinois Death and Still Birth Index, she died May 9, 1943 in Lincoln, Illinois. I thought this information would help you, man I was confused until I started digging! Hope you are well!!

RE: Martha E. Rodgers
This was a challenging but very interesting find. The first time I saw the stones they were heavily encrusted with a growth of lichen. The only reason I found them was because I could see the od of Rodgers from J.T.'s inscription.

It took a few hours of soaking with water and brushing the lichen away to reveal the inscriptions you see in the photos. I will try some lighting ideas I have to see if I can get the foot stone inscriptions to be readable.

That tree is a very large oak tree and even on a bright day it is somewhat dark under there.

I have not checked for memorials for J.T and Eliza to put those photos up. J.T. was a civil war veteran as well.

Mattie E. Rodgers

I have posted a few photos of Mattie's grave stones. Read the captions for burial info etc.

There is no inscription on these stones for Joseph S. Rodgers. He must not have made provision for completing the monuments after his death.

I have photographed the marker for the son Joey Dean McAlister at Mt. View Baptist Church here in Maiden, NC. If you like you add that photo to Betty Jane's page, or I can if you wish.

RE: Photo #28145304
Book has no source with the picture. Book has list of general sources not cited to individual facts. Picture was correctly placed in an article about Turner Gibson Jr and Caroline Boone.

Title Page has copyright 1995 and an address for the author:
Melvin P. Gibson
62 Rock Creek Lane
Whitesville, KY 42378

Author's preface has the author's high school graduation year -1965. About 65 years old. May still be contactable.

Memorial # 28145304 Photo
The photo provided for Ophelia Sims Cave Lively is the very same photo used for Caroline Boone Gibson - Wife of Turner Gibson Jr. on page 72 0f the book "History of the Gibson Family" written by Melvin P. Gibson a descendant of Turner Gibson.

I don't know the answer to this puzzle, but I felt I should call it to your attention.
