Bio and Links
Bio Photo O.K. I admit it. I am a Genealogy Junkie. I began researching mine and my husband's family history 10 years ago. What started out as a mild curiosity has developed into an obsession that seems to have taken over my life. What could be more fun than a trip to a courthouse, library or cemetery?
You see......It's a sickness.

I love to visit cemeteries and read the epitaphs inscribed on tombstones. I think it is so sad to see so many unmarked graves, everyone should have a tombstone to mark their life after they are gone.

Our most prominent surnames are: Miller, Burnette, Bates, Hood, Gibson, Thomas, Mathews, Evans, Charles, and Stover. Our ancestors lived in the North Georgia mountains. They migrated to this area from North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, Pennsylvania and other states across the U. S.

Thank you for posting Cornelius Bowman (D:

Thank you!

RE: John Burnett of Aberdeen Scotland
You're welcome. I want every descendent of 1610 John Burnett to have it without going through the time consuming process I did to get it. By the way, It looks really nice printed out on an 11x17 white vellum broadside. Take care.

Hello, my husband is descended from John Robert Ray Jr, and Sarah Elizabeth Evans. I noticed you had a memorial for him. Do you happen to know where she is buried? Joe A Ray is my husbands grandfather (son of John Robert Ray Jr). Looking forward to hearing from you.

Shellhorse
I found Ila Hood Shellhorse. While I was at another cemetery, Memory Hill, today I saw another Shellhorse. That person is listed on find a grave. I did not take a picture but if need just request and I'll be glad to go back. This is where my dad is buried.
