Barb's Family Tree


The memories of all our yesterdays
live in the corners of my heart,
A time spent not so long ago,
where you will forever be a part.

I tell everyone I meet how very proud I am of you,
And how Hard it was to let you go
even though I knew you'd want me to.

But now somewhere, someone is smiling
because of the joy that you could bring,
And I know after listening more closely,
it's the song of unselfishness when I hear a bird sing.

And even though you can no longer be with me,
I still feel that you are there.
Perhaps, that's the bond that goes unbroken
when a love is truly shared.

So, I'll only say farewell because in good-byes I don't believe,
For I know that time will come again
when you'll be holding hands with me.

Lorrie Neal - 2003

My sweet George was even giving after death, he gave the gift of Life to others.

Diane Addington
Sharps in Claiborne TN
I noticed someone had mentioned you in a note on a Corum Sharp memorial. I was hoping you had info on this family. I am interested in finding memorials for Nancy Elizabeth "Nanny" White Sharp and spouse, Isaac Henderson Sharp. Their daughter Celia, (Find A Grave Memorial# 127530123) married a relative, H H Addington in 1918. I have the mems for both of them, although there is not much there. I have been sending edits to the contributor "camperpup", giving them links. If I knew where the parents are buried I would make the mems for them. Any help is appreciated.

I deleted Eva Feathers, so those edits won't go through.

Hi Barbara:

Thank you for visiting my 2 tabby cats. Your kind gesture to visit them means so much to me. I hope to see more of you in the future.

Have a great night!

Mary Joyce
You have Mary Elizabeth Fulton Joyce was the daughter of Lawson Rickman and Elizabeth Alford on her memorial site. She was the stepdaughter of Lawson Rickman and the daughter of his second wife, Mary Catherine Burns and James C. Fulton. Please remove the notation from her memorial. It causes some confusion. She is my husband's great grandmother. Thank you.

Hi! =)
Dear Barbara,
I want to stop with a big Thank You for continuing to visit my pages...I always tell my group that if they see a visitor on my own pages, then to return the favor for me because I'm not always on here...I hope that this sends a few folks your way. =) We're finally through a heatwave that seemed to be coming from the seventh circle of hades, and so all's good right now - Take Care and stay in touch. Hugs, RCP and Gannon Blue

Dutch Hilgers
Dear Barbara,
Thank You for the info on Dutch Hilgers' burial place - I have been working from very incomplete records that my mom started in the 1970s', and know nothing about my maternal side of family - I met my grandmother a few times and my step-grandfather once, and that was it. =( ...and so to be trying to put these pages together has been frustrating at times. Thank You again, hope we cross paths in the future - Hugs, RCP and Gannon Blue

I'm glad to hear that Elva is still going strong. I know that her sister, Doris, has died. Thanks for letting me know about Elva.
