|Bio and Links|
I was born in a two room tar-papered house that was built of raw pine lumber inside the edge of my grandads' cornfield in the 'Big Thicket' area of South-East Texas. At that time there were six kids plus Mom & Dad. Mom heated our two room home and cooked our meals on a pot-belly stove after washing our clothes with a scrub board until about 1950. In 1952 we moved to Louisiana. Mom & Dad had seven children, at the time of this entry five are living.|
I enlisted (RA) and served in the US Army for three years (1965-1968,the last 20 months was in South East Asia without leave) and had a Joint MACTHAI assignment (all four services on the same compound). Honorable Discharge, SP5.....
I later completed a five year in-house apprenticeship under Ray Walker (Board Certified Questioned Document Examiner), which qualified me to become a "Questioned Document Investigator" and prove forgery in court to free the innocent and to hang the guilty. My mentor (Raymond "Ray" Walker) passed away in 1994 ending my five year apprenticeship, I am grateful to have had the only five year in-house apprenticeship that he had ever given.
I have been certified by Ray Walker, and formally qualified in handwritng analysis since 1990 and given a diploma. I earned my Questioned Document certification (Diploma) in 1991. The first case to testify in court as an expert was in Ft. Worth, Texas in Tarrant County in 1995 shortly after Ray Walker's death, which was a continuation of Ray Walker's case.
One of my most important (voluminous) cases was in Lea County, New Mexico. It is with cases like this when I have abandoned my safety for a client.
I have been formally qualified as a Questioned Document Investigator since 1991. A most recent major case to testify was in 2009, was before the Louisiana State Supreme Court (which is the Louisiana State Bar Association "Attorney Diciplinary Committee", my client was an attorney) where my qualifications as a Questioned Document Investigator were accepted and entered into the record. I kept my client from being disciplined for something he didn't do.
I have never caused any of my clients to lose their case by making either a wrongful conclusion or a dishonest conclusion, and have never been disqualified in any Court as a professional Questioned Document Investigator.
It must be understood by any reader of my Bio, that all my past clients could be represented by me only if I could present truthful, factual evidence in their favor. You see, If my findings were not in their favor, they would not want to retain me. My mentor taught me that "The Truth does not diminish with time" and remains the same.
I am not associated/affiliated with anyone that is related to Handwriting Services International now or in the past.
I was introduced to findagrave.com by Carolyn Byrum (from New Mexico) over four years ago so I could begin a search for the family I never knew. Please visit my Virtual Family links and see a very wide family history....
It's a pity when a blood relative has to steal my professional identity and forge my name & then profit from that forgery while representing themselves to be me, even if they didn't qualify or deserve to hold such a title. Such person(s) have been disqualified not less than four times in the Federal Court's (Maine, Illinois, Georgia & Hawaii) yet continued to wrongfully advertise themselves to be ethical and have the highest standards. It's been found that if someone is not Qualified in 'one' court then they are not Qualified in 'any' court, must less the 'Four' Federal Courts where they have been disqualified. I have taken a polygraph examination in my own defense regarding my qualifications and ethical practices, and the results were "No Deceit Indicated" . The relatives refused to take one.
This person/relative has also been dis-qualified in several district courts in several states. His son's unqualified/unprofessional opinion has also been 'over-ruled' in Judge Judith Scheindlin's (Judge Judy) court on T.V. because he didn't follow procedure/protocol in making his unqualified decision (She ruled against his unqualified opinion). You should notice that he has never taken the time to 'brag' about this instance!!!
This person(s) also tried several times to have statements of several knowledgeable authors that had been printed, removed, and to prevent them from making further statements. The only time that demands such as this are made is "When there is evidence of fraud" and they don't want the rest of the world to know the truth.
It has been shown by these relatives that they would not hesitate to "Throw their own Mother under the Bus" and use unfortunate situations to cover their wrongful actions. I deeply regret these deeds.....
I have worked with law enforcement (State & Federal) in my job of defending myself & my clients and refuse to allow such gregarious and pernicious deeds to hurt me.
I have had to remind some on occasion, that "My expertise is for sale, my opinion is not".

IF YOU WANT A TRANSFER or make Corrections, READ THE FOLLOWING:
Because of a recent abuse of a fellow contributor by someone who was obviously confused about the Find A Grave guidelines and or transfers, I suggest the following for anyone who asks me for a transfer:
1) Please use "Suggest a Correction" for transfer requests or corrections. It is found under the edit tab on the upper right corner (in the memorial of the one you want transfered). I will respond only to those who do.
2) If you ask for a transfer please include your relationship to the memorial and your contributor I.D. You must be a member of Find A Grave and have a contributor ID in order to request a transfer and/or manage memorials on Find A Grave. If you use the "Suggest a Correction" you won't have to identify yourself, your Find a Grave I.D. will already be there.
3) If you have a problem with something I have posted, please Email me or click on "suggest a correction" instead of posting it on my contributor page where it would use important space that can be used for more important things. I will address the issue as quickly as I possibly can.
Please keep this in mind: Those of us who contribute to Find A Grave, do so voluntarily and free of charge. This is a part time hobby of mine, and began purely as a search for the relatives I never knew (both those I have appreciated and a few I didn't). It is now also done for the purpose of freely assisting people interested in doing research of their family history or their geneology.

I really appreciate the census information for James Irvin and Amanda Jane Garland along with the transfers. It's really great to see people like yourself take the time to help others find their roots. If you ever need any look ups from the upstate of SC please don't hesitate to ask!
