Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been a genealogist for 27 years. I was born in Kansas and grew up in Kansas until I was a sophomore in high school. We then moved to Des Moines, Iowa where I finished high school. I have lived all over the country and traveled in 43 states. I love the history of our country and studying my families along with their friends and neighbors. I keep a huge database of families because I track them as they travel westward. I have helped many people find their ancestors because I have a gift at tracking families, so I want to share that with others. I don't always find everyone, but my percentage rate is at least 95% of the time. They call me the sleuth!! One of my friends once told me "ya can't hide from you!"

My father was adopted in 1920 and I found our biological family in 1992 when he was 72 years old. I am willing to help adoptees try to find their families, especially the stolen children of Georgia Tann of the Tennessee Children's Home Society in Memphis, Tennessee.

I recently completed research for Hewitt Clarke's new book, "Money and Blood" and am currently doing research for another new book he's going to publish. The story features a section on the family of Filmore Johnson and his wife, Betty Levy and the self made million, Robert Johnson who started BET television, whom is a descendant of Filmore Johnson.

If you use any of my data all I asked is that you give me credit for my work.

Recent request for Hutchinson
Hello Carol. I have just fulfilled your request to update the parents of Mr. Hutchinson in Woodstock cemetery here in Champaign county, Ohio.
I am pleased to have been of help. If this gentleman and wife are related to you, I would be more than happy to transfer management of their memorials to you. That is the main reason I add names outside my family. You can let me know. Good luck on all your genealogical endeavors. Thank you for the work you do on FindAGrave.

RE: Buford D Good
Brother sounds better. I'm not sure who this person is, but they have a lot of their memorials messed up big time.

Thanks you and God Bless

Can you tell me where you found that funeral record for Martha Winifred Bonfils (Annie Laurie). I do not find the N. Gray records for that time period. Thank you.

I post an article to Sarahs memorial from August 19, 1880. It's about her being attacked by "an old sow". As always, I will remove if you want.

Hello, I am a decedent of this person through Sarah Ann Glaze. I notice there is no photo of his gravestone. I live about 14 miles from this cemetery and would be happy to find the grave and take the photo. I am working on my ancestry through and have much of it but need to verify it. I hope to hear from you, Thanks, Michael Kinner

I fulfilled your photo request, but the photo posted sideways. I removed it, and I'm trying to get it posted correctly. Any idea why this would happen? Any known issues with posting photos on here?
