Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am not a professional genealogist.


I have been doing family genealogy since 1981 after my dad died of lung cancer, his parents died when he was a child and he asked that I get to know them and their history and one of my mom's sister-in-laws was doing genealogy on her side of my family so we worked and learned together. That aunt in later years had a stroke and couldn't remember or help though when we started out we did all letters, queries and library and government searches manually (by hand) and then on typewriter. I've been able to learn much more when resources came online. I am NOT a professional genealogist though have helped many through the years and helped correct misread census records even for families I am not personally connected with.

I've not worked alone nor do I want to take credit for those friends and family members who have shared and researched with me. So I'd like to thank:

Aunt Doris Marie Leonard, Aunt Lizzie Holman, Aunt Audrey Cleek, Aunt Nancy Watkins, Great Grandma Effie O'Dell McClelland Hankins, Grandma Belle Hankins Leonard, Grandpa Earl Leonard, cousin Tammy Spring, Uncle Jack Leonard, uncle EJ Leonard, cousin Jo Dorais, cousin Kay Jamison Lane, cousin Ray Thompson on the Nancy Sherrill Rogers side, cousin Sandy Sharpy, cousin Terri Santiago, cousin J. Randall Houp, cousin Gene Hankins, Aunt Nancy Green, Aunt Mae Smith, Aunt Emma Penn, Aunt Audie Cobble, Uncle Buster, Uncle Jason (all Neelys), cousin Emma Mae Gilbert, My Dickson cousin who sent me so much Oakley/Kindley information, Aunt Rosa Underwood, cousin Warren Neely, Uncle George Neely, cousin Juanita Hill Leak, cousin John D. Little, Grace Parke Renshaw, cousin Leah Heiden, cousins David and Belle Myers, cousin Susan Dexter, cousins Carl & Cherry Fisher, cousins Bob & Lois Small, cousin Glen Leonard, cousin Doyle Loveland, Uncle Harry & Aunt Pearl Hayes, Aunt Marie Roberts, Aunt Lena Neely, cousins JB & Carl Holmes, cousin Jim Neely, the many Grammers met at the Springdale, AR Grammer family reunion, Maria Guadalupe Serrano Gomez, Merced Gomez, Michael Serrano, and that wonderful little lady who was the city or county clerk near Collin County, TX who passed away many years ago that went to all the cemeteries looking for my Neely's for me.

If those who helped me are not mentioned they are not forgotten, just too many to remember. Especially to my parents, thank you for instilling in me a sense of family and knowing that even when I/we experienced bad, trying and/or negative things we could always talk about it honestly and work through it.

Thank you for helping me to honor my family and friends and leave a bit of them behind reminding of the sacrifice and places of honor left in our hearts and minds.

RE: William Penn Little

We can trade, I just put it in because I had it. Do I have to do anything to change it?

Hi Jo Anne,
Terribly sorry for the delay in transfer and editing, for some reason the email went to my spam folder. I have transferred over Darlynn's page to you.
Regards, Sade

Mary Etta Little
Hi there,

I transferred Mary Etta Little to you but didn't make any changes to her profile. You had sent me two requests to link a husband to her but they were for different men, both with the last name of Little--and I'm not sure which husband it was. Since this is your family, I figured you can sort that out! Thanks! :) Sue
