Bio and Links
Bio Photo Even though I have lived in Austin, Texas, for nearly twenty years, I am still a Californian. I was born there and my grandmother and mother were as well. I gave birth to my daughter in California and lived in the state for the first 40 years of my life.

Sometimes you don't know where you came from until you move away or travel extensively. That has been true for me. Besides, I can never be a Texan anyway. Unlike Californians, they are a very proud people, unwilling to pollute their identity with any strangers. You must be born in Texas to be a Texan. They usually fly the Texas flag on a separate pole and at an equal height to the U.S. flag. In case you didn't know, Texas is the only state that was an independent nation before joining the United States of America.

I currently have four websites:
-http://wilsonmaudegiffin.pbworks.com
-http://www.grimshaworigin.org/snowfamily/
-http://www.kleingiffin.webs.com
-http://trees.ancestry.com/tree/47768838/family

So far I pull information from what other researchers have found, but I am usually very good at documenting sources and only using research done by those that are also good at documenting their sources.

My dad was born and raised in Missouri. His roots were there for at least three or four generations. Our Snow ancestors trace back to William Snow that married Rebecca Browne whose father was Peter Browne on the Mayflower. Atterberry traces back through Benjamin Caldwell Atterberry to Seaman Atterberry all the way back to William Atterbury, the 1733 English emigrant.

On my mother's side, her maternal roots trace back as many as eight to ten generations of Giffins and Morrows, while her paternal roots--the Kleins and Whittmans--were first generation immigrants from the Alsace Lorrain region of France.

Like most others in this endeavor, my purpose is to document and make public all the information I have collected for the benefit of future generations.

RE: How Do You Do IT?
You click on where it says "Help with Find A Grave" and scroll down to where it tells you how to link memorials together. There is a long list of numbers and letters that you can copy and paste in the bio. area. You must add the memorial number where the "X's" are and the name of the person where the word "Name" is. As far as I know you can only include them in the bio. area. I don't know if they will work when added with a photo and since this is bio. info. I don't think they should be included with a flower since only personal notes should be added that way. Hope this helps. Let me know if you cannot figure out all this.

Cora M. Davies Snow Park
No your are not suppose to include both of a womans' married names at the top of her memorial. Only her maiden name, Davies, and her last name at the time of death (or the name that appears on her stone) should be included in the name at the top of her memorial. The names of both of her husband's are included in the bio. area which is where they belong. See "Help with Find A Grave" for their suggestions on how to include married names.

Elijah Atterberry
Thank you for sponsoring the memorial. Normally I would offer to transfer, but on this one it is my direct lineage. I'm currently deep in research on another branch of my family (a huge and complex one), but my next major project is trying to trace Elijah's descendants. I'm guessing you and I are cousins on some distant level, and once I begin on the Atterberry line I would like to compare our different branches.

In the meantime, feel free to contact me through FindaGrave or the e-mail in my profile for anything about the branch of the family that only made it 40 miles from where he is buried.

Note: I'm currently trying to get permission to put up a fence to keep the cows off of the headstones and maybe stand them up and turn it back into a recognizable cemetery.

Online MO Death Certificates
Did you know that MO has its death records from 1910-1961 online? You can find Laura Snow, her husband, and other relatives there. http://www.sos.mo.gov/archives/resources/deathcertificates/
