Bio Photo Ex-paratrooper. Graduate Student. Wife. Mommy.

I was working on my and my husband's family tree online and I had pretty much run into a dead end on my side when he showed me a headstone of one of my relatives in Alabama. I was so surprised and asked him where he got it. That was my introduction to

The happiest people I know are people who don't even think about being happy. They just think about being good neighbors, good people. And then happiness sort of sneaks in the back window while they are busy doing good. -Rabbi Harold Kushner

Thank you so much for the corrections you have sent recently. I normally try to add military prefixes but sometimes I do miss them. There are also a few who think that if they didn't actually die in service that the prefix should not be added. However as a title earned it does not need to be forgotten.
Also the miss spelled names were very welcome.
Names should always match the marker and the ones you sent me didn't.
PLEASE NEVER hesitate to send anything that needs to be sent.
Many thanks, Eliz

A question about your bio
Are your husband's Brown relatives in Randolph County, NC by chance?

RE: J W Childers
No, I think this is correct. The info I have is Tilvus Walter Childers 1892-1927 and the headstone looks like T W Childers to me even tho the Find A Grave info is under J W Childers. Appreciate your help. Find A Grave folks are the best.
