Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm blessed to be married to the best husband in the world, am the mother of 2 wonderful daughters and grandmother of 8 beautiful grandchildren. I am also a RETIRED Professor of Nursing from a state university.

Genealogy is a hobby that began when I was a child and was allowed to explore the attic of my grandparents home (circa 1866). I found old pictures, store ledgers, Bibles, books, letters, etc., that dated back to the mid 1800's. My grandmother located the family history work by Bertha Sockwell Blackwood and from there, I was hooked! Whenever I get a spare minute (which doesn't happen often enough!) I grab a camera and head to a cemetery or I bury myself in family data on!

I am happy to make transfers to family members and to very close friends who can add personal stories or information to the memorial . I also try to make all edits requested but i do request your patience. It make take some time for me to do so.

Fredrick Walter Bradford 77883156
Hey Wendy, I have your listing with the obit for Fredrick Walter Bradford, and I had him in my Carpenter family history book. Well he fell out and now I can't find his connection. I do have some folks in the Colbert Co. area such as Chessley Bunn Carpenter. Can you help me?

John Blackstone Pouncey grave
Does he have a grave marker? I was told that none was found, although his brief newspaper obit said he would be buried there. Thank

RE: Sockwell family
Hi Wanda! Thank you for your kind words about my mom and me. I had no idea she sent a picture of me! If it was the one with my nursing cap on, that must be about 38 years ago, taken for the capping ceremony during my Sophomore year of college. She probably filled you in on our branch up to her grandkids. Since then, 2 of her grandkids have had kids, so she would have 3 great grandkids now. Both of my parents died way too young, as did my oldest brother Marc who passed away in 2011 at the age of 60. My 2 daughters are 24 and 29 years old with no kids yet. :-( They both live in Seattle and are very excited to learn about the family history; way more interested in it than I was at their age. I really am enjoying the process of discovery but have a couple questions for you: what would you say has been the most helpful website or software in your research and going way back, what year was George Lance Sockwell born? If there is a Sockwell family reunion, I know my girls would absolutely love to come. When I told them I had contacted you, they both asked "when can we go for a visit?" If there is one, where would it be? Needless to say, if you or your family are ever in the Seattle area, please do let me know! Please give my regards to your family, Jenny
