Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello, and welcome to my page. I am a Kister by birth, I live in Virginia, with my Husband & a granddaughter that we are raising.
We have two daughters and a total of 4 granddaughters and 1 grandson.
I have lived in Utah, Idaho, California, Washington, Oregon, Alabama and Virginia. We have settled and will stay put here in the Appalachian Mountains, it is just wonderful here.
I discovered the fascinating world of Genealogy and have been researching family history since 1995.
My family on my father's side is originally from Walter & Frank, Saratov, Russia. I am part of the second generation born in the States.
On my father's side of the family, I am interested in the Sir names of Kister, Kaufmann, Babcock, Widup, Macbeth, Gettman.
On my mother's side of the family are Wright, Sweet, Jones, Brady, Cox; Hale; Paulson.
Hubby's side is Morris, Elam, Lightfoot, Coffey, Jeffrey, Koehl.
For other family memebers I'm searching Worley, Barnett, Chaney, Smith, LaMon, Umstead, Cho, Iliff, & Galardo.
When I found the web site, I realized I had to be a part of it all. We actually find graves as a family hobby, we all participate, it's great!
My hubby is interested in the Revolution and Civil wars.
I like to search and add names in local grave yards that are not presently on the database, and finding old obits on the net that hasn't been added as yet.
If anyone finds info that I have submitted wrong, please bring it to my attention and I will correct it right away. Comments and suggestions are welcome. If you can suggest changes or additions to any memorial that I've posted, please don't hesitate to let me know.
If you see a family member or loved one, and wish to have ownership, please don't hesitate to ask.

Your's in grave finding, Barbie :)

RE: Re: James Blevins
Thanks for your reply. I know part of Saltville is in Smyth and part in Washington. Same problem with Carroll, Wythe, Grayson Counties in Va.
Depends on who is writing the info down as to what county they think they are working in.
Very confusing when I was researching in those counties.

RE: Re: George Gamble 66451287
That is a very generous offer. I am not a family member, but I would honor the memorial. My goal is to ascertain that each Patriot that I can find who fought at BKM have a memorial and have his service acknowledged as you have done so conscientiously.

Thank you for your generosity!

RE: Elizabeth McConnell
Yes, Elizabeth Willoughby McConnell is on my husband's line. That would be so sweet of you if you transferred her over. Her memorial is 38445493

Captain Thomas McConnell is really an Ensign - not a captain. I believe I sent you a photo of his military headstone application. They scratched out the word captain and replaced it with Ensign. If I didn't, let me know and I'll email it again.

She was the 3rd wife of Thomas McConnell. They were married December 25, 1835 in Washington county, Virginia.

Thank you,
