Bio and Links
My name is Evelyn. I started researching my mothers' Pope Co., AR family after she died in 1990. I have met so many wonderfull people, talking with them over the phone and traveling to AR twice. Many of them remember my Mother "Geri" and it is so good to hear these stories as my mother died when she was 59. My tree has grown over the years and now it is time to become part of Findagrave and list all of her family and relatives in a virtual cemetery. I think I must be related to everyone in Pope Co. I have researched the Teague, Crites, Bradley, Virden, Bewley, Davis', Dixon, Dollar, Duvall, Gipson, Lay, Russell, Thompson names, and many, many more. I am proud of what I have done, only wish my mother was here to help me. She loved her roots with Atkins, Pope Co., AR. I hope she knows how much love and time has come from this. And I hope too that I am able to help others looking for their missing puzzle pieces.
I live in the central valley of Calif. I have been married to my husband for 40 years and we have 2 children. I have a married daughter but no grandchildren yet. Our son is single. My husband is a special person who doesn't mind the time I spend doing this as he knows how much I enjoy it. I love it, I am addicted. I just feel I need to find out all I can and as fast as I can. I know others feel the same way.

I see that you are related to the Virdens here in Wendell, so I am transferring this memorial to you since she is no relation to me. Take care and Seasons Greetings to you and yours.

James Reason Jones
Hi Evelyn, My name is Debbie Sunday. James Reason Jones is my Great Grandfather on my mothers side. Her father was Chester Leon who was James R. son.I am trying to learn more about this side of the family and have a little info but not alot. James youngest daughter is still alive and living in Russellville,Ark. She is Bonnie Jones Hopkins and she is 83 yrs. old. I talked to her this past weekend and she told me that her grandparents on both sides were buried in Kinder and Forks of the creek cemetaries in pope county. I looked them up but they were not showing so I added them. I would love to see what kind of info you might have that can help me out on my end...I should have paid more attention when I went to Oklahoma and Arkansas in the summers with my grandparents, but I do remember going with my papa to see all his cousins that were in the area. I look forward to hearing back from you... Debbie

WJ Duvall at Rock Springs in Marshall Co. AL
I found you from your memorial on find a grave. Do you know much about the Duvall family posted at Rock Springs. Almost all of the stones are part buried sandstones that are badly worn. Trying to post stones to the right memorial. Will try to go back and try etching the stones with paper or foil... chalk will not work for these. I think I found WY's but can not make out the dates

Earl Hice
Evelyn -

I saw your message about Earl and his family. I have found a record for an Earl Hice married to Myrtle Rose in 1942 in Franklin Co, Arkansas. Is this the same Earl?

John Chronister and Mary
I am a descendant of John's brother Adam Chronister. Thank you for your record on John and Mary in Find A Grave. I am a volunteer in Polk County,AR. I believe records of those that led the way before us are very important. Adam is supposed to be buried in Franklin Co., AR. I have not found his burial place but continue to search.

Got your message. Yes, I have a Facebook. Aleta Moore in Ocala, FL. I have no pics up right now.
www.facebook.com/aleta.moore.5. Or just look under my name, it is easier. You are welcome. I don't know if Shirley has one or not. Take care TTYL. My son is on my Facebook and so are the two other grandkids. My son is James Cohen. Neice and nephew are Brianne Moore and Joe Ruskin. I would not try to befriend them. They are not friendly like I am. They would probably get mad at me for giving their names.
