Bio and Links
Bio Photo I became interested in genealogy about 1976 after my grandmother gave me two large oval framed portraits of her father and grandmother. I hung them on my wall and would sit for hours wondering about them. Who exactly were they, where did they come from. This curiosity has taken me from Lawrenceville, Illinois to Paris, Tennessee. From Hayti, Missouri to Ellistown, Mississippi. From Smithland, Kentucky to Graves County, Kentucky. I have met so many distant cousins. Cousins that had pictures of my ancestors which had been passed down to them. Thank you all. The search as been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. If you find errors on findagrave that I have entered, please message me and I will gladly make the necessary correction. If any of those that I have placed on findagrave are your ancestors, send me a message and I will gladly turn them over to you so you may add your information.

TO THOSE WHO SLEEP IN UNMARKED GRAVES: We have searched diligently for your identity but too many times in vain. You have a right to a stone with your name and dates marking the six feet of earth where you sleep. Many of you once had stones, but time has taken its toll. Your descendants live in faraway places or are no more. The land has changed ownership many times. The fences are gone and livestock wander your graves. Grasping hands always wanting a few more feet of land, and now your gravesite is lost forever to a subdivision. We know you were placed there by loving hands and broken hearts many years ago. We know that you were happy; you were sad; you laughed; you cried; and that you loved. We gaze in admiration when we find the tall cedar trees, the yellow buttercups, the blue periwinkle and the white bridal wreath blooming each spring for you, and in loyalty to the one who planted them there on your grave.

Crews/Cruse descendants
Robbie, I appreciate the transfer of the Cruse/Crews ancestors in my direct line. I also appreciate all the hard work you have put into researching the Crews/Cruse family, through the years, and sharing your information with us. It is an honor to manage these, and continue learning facts, as to our ancestors and loved ones.

Thanks so much!
Jo Ann

RE: New Hope Cemetery
Robbie, I have added the dates you supplied in a separate notes section as the date of death (Nov. 1916) you sent me is very much in conflict with the inscribed date on the pictured tombstone. I cannot, in good conscience, change the memorial date from what can be clearly viewed on the tombstone. Best, SueB

RE: New Hope Cemetery
Robbie, I'll be happy to make the correction. Could you please provide me with the memorial number or link? Thanks.

RE: New Hope Cemetery (Yuma)
Hi Robbie,
It would be easiest for me to try to help you out on your questions if you could email me directly rather than post a question on the findagrave site. Giving me the individual's Find A Grave memorial # would be a HUGE help as well. Thanks!
