Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been researching my family tree for about 12 years now, and the more I find out, the more fascinated I become! I am amazed with, as I have been able to find many of my missing pieces.

I was born in Texas and have lived in New Mexico all but a few years of my early life. I live in Las Cruces, New Mexico. One branch of my family were pioneers in the New Mexico Territory. My Great Grandfather, Robert Florence Love, is the founder of Lovington in Lea County, New Mexico. I am proud of my New Mexico ancestors. In tracing my ancestry back, I've found that my roots originated in North Carolina, Georgia and other southern states. I'm now making an effort to study US Hitory more thoroughly so that I may understand these people, how they lived, and what the world was like in their times.

Findagrave is an amazing resource, and I hope to be able to start photographing remote New Mexico Cemeteries in the near future, so that I may give back.

John Wesley Williams
My ancestor, Nehemiah Williams, was born 16 Jan. 1815, in N. Carolina, & died 14 Feb. 1885, Jackson Co., KS. His father was named John Wesley Williams who was born in VA.

I was wondering if the John Wesley Williams (1856-1930)on Find A Grave could be connected to my Williams family?

6th cousin??
Hello Nancy, Just wanted to drop you a short line and introduce myself. My name is Anthony Clayton and it looks like you and I are cousins. 6th cousin 1x removed if all my research is correct. Mine and your first common grand parents are Stephen Clayton Jr. b-1735 NC d-1819 NC and Mary Dennum b-1738 NC d-1821 TN. I was born in Ga in 1962 moved to SC in 1990. I come home….. Anyway if you would like to know more just ask.

BTW, I lived just over the mountain pass from you in White Sands Missile Range for 2 years while I was in the Army.

The wife and I used to make a run to LC every once in awhile when we could afford a night on the town and a What-A-Burger!

I suspect his mother's given is NANCY. 1870 Huntsville, Rockingham Co., NC, census pg 10, shows NANCY living next door to brother, DALTON. CATHERINE is shown living with NANCY. This is most likely ROBERT'S sister.

RE: William James Amerson
Dear Nancy, although I don't have a specific record for it, I have never been to Jack Co. Tx. I live in Beckham Co. Ok. I looked up the memorial and saw I had added the caption "This is in Wellington, Texas / South Fairview Cemetery, Collingsworth county" so I assume the original request may have been for a different location because I don't normally add a caption unless it is to say what the inscription says because it badly worn or that it can't be read. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Amazing information. I am fourth generation grandaughter of Martha V (Patti) Banner. My mother grew up in Elk Park and I have been t this cemetery several times and will certainly pay more close attention the next time I visit.

Nancy, thank you for the work you contributed. What an interesting family!!

RE: Robert F. Love
I think I got everyone transfered over, if I missed anyone let me know.
The Beauchamps lived across the street from us and they were such a joy to be neighbors with. My kids probably played with you while you were here.
Take care
