Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in Ardmore, Carter Co, OK where my husband jokingly says that I thought Noah's Ark had landed.

For thirty plus years I have been involved in genealogy. When my mother died, she left some notes about a few ancestors she had uncovered and hoped I would continue her research. That was the hook-in-the-jaw that changed my life. I only regret that I have missed out on so many years that I could have used. Alas, all those family stories that went in one ear and out the other, and all those family members who took so much information to the grave with them.

I am, however, thankful for the tools that are now available and for FindAGrave, a platform that I have spent many hours gaining from and contributing to.

If I have created a memorial for a member of your family, who isn't related to me, and you can add a biographical sketch I will be glad to transfer it to you. However, many have received a transfer/transfers & have never added anything. This isn't fair to kin who may come along later who can do so.

An exception to the above are my Pearson, Ward, Bell, Dodson, & Love ancestors & kin, most of whom have numerous descendants. Much of the information contained in their memorials is the result of many years of tedious research, and as new information comes to light, I would like to be able to make those changes. For these memorials please follow FindAGrave guidelines for transfers.

Instructions for ALL REQUESTS for corrections, additional information, or transfers:

1. Go to the memorial page, which has an "Edit" tab located on the upper right side of the memorial.
2. Click on the "Edit" tab, then click on the Suggest a correction or provide additional information link, which opens a message page.
3. Type in your message.

Making a request this way insures that no mistakes are made, because it takes me to the exact memorial.

Thanks for your understanding.

Pierce/Conn Families
Good morning Virginia,

Nancy E. Pierce was married to James Madison Conn who had a son by the name of James Howard Conn who married Beulah Mobley who had a daughter by the name of Stella Maxine Conn who married James Calvin Dodson, Jr.

If you have not gone back that far is there anyone that you know who has?

Nancy E. Pierce-Conn is my husband's great-aunt, who was a sister to my husband's great-grandmother.

Any help would be appreciated. Have a great day.

Dollie Richardson Edit
Hello Virginia,
Thanks so much for the speedy edit request to link Dollie to her hubby. Am trying to help a friend untangle the Richardsons in that area..some spread out and went West, so it helps to have the spouses linked so you are not chasing them too!! :) :)

Have a terrific week-end....and thank you again.

Pierce/Conn Families
Dear Virginia,

I am researching my husband's paternal side of the family which includes Nancy E. Pierce-Conn. I would like to communicate with you in a more private setting. Do you have a tree on Ancestry or a private e-mail address on Find A Grave?

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Susan and I drove over to Thompson and took several pictures of their stones with different settings. We finally gave up and used chalk, as it was the only way to be able to read the words. The stones had weathered a lot since we took the original pictures. You have at least a record of the stones as they continue to weather away. Hope the chalk was okay as We didn't know what else to do. Best wishes and live well, David and Susan Sharp
