I started researching my genealogy in the late 1960's. Have come a long way since than. When I started it was mailing off request and including a self addressed, stamped envelope and waiting days, even weeks for an answer. Now I just boot up the computer and it's there. (all most). I enjoy going to the court house's where my ancestors lived and going through all the files they have. I try to take a trip at least once a or twice a year.
RE: Jesse Fraizer Ok. I think there's a mix of two families here. Samuel and Sarah Frazier are probably very common names. I've only listed the ones born in Tennessee, as there is a census record for Samuel Frazier there.
Yes, Rebecca Williams Dodson was my 2nd great grandmother. Her parents were Charles and Elizabeth Colbert Williams. My Great-Grandparents were William and Ida Flack Dodson. William was the son of Rebecca and Andrew Dodson. My grandparents were James Joseph and Helen Elizabeth Demuling Dodson. James was the son of William and Ida.
RE: C and F Bailey Hi Linda, I'm going to make a page for a headstone I have. It reads Infant Daughter of C. & F Bailey. The only Bailey that I have that may be the parents are Clyde Earl Bailey and his wife Freda. Their graves are in Section VI, Row 14. The infant daughter is buried in Section III, Row 23. Next to Lova Bailey and Virginia Ann Bailey, Daughter of Mack & Hazel Bailey (b. 6-6-1936 to 4-6-1936). I'll make a page and let me know if you want to connect it to Clyde and Freda. Your Cuz Joanne
Sidebottom and Bowen I am distantly related at best through the Ridgway line. However, once I get started I like to take the lines out as far as I can. I really am a genealogy buff and have been working on family history for nearly 30 years. I see you've done alot of work on findagrave.com. I just started more recently. I add pictures and stories when I can to leave for others. I love it. You'll find me on familysearch.org under Tclark0755 and ancestry under Clark-Day Tree. Turia Clark Day
