Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been working extensively on my family history since the mid 1980's in conjunction with several of my relatives who have been working on our family history for over 40 years. I give credit to those who inspired me and provided me with a wealth of information to get started and the majority of information provided to me came from the research and tireless communications of my Aunt Ruth Fraze Adams, Aunt Sybil Fraze Victor, Cousins' Tommy Lois Hill and Euna Hill Long; all who have passed on. I also owe a great deal to several cousins amongst the living who continually assist me with putting the pieces of our family puzzle together.

I have alway thought of cemeteries not as dreary, scary places but, lovely resting places teaming with the quiet anticipation of all who have gone before us and are waiting for a day when a bell will toll and we'll all gather to be together in beautiful meadows, desert scenes, wide oceans, babbling brooks, swift rivers or mountain gorges.

My lines consist of the following surnames:

Neal Hale Taylor Glasscock Shaddox Fitzgerald Fraze Hill Counts Drake Hawk Hawkins
Wilson Mullins Drake Ledbetter Long
Barnhill Mitchell Ruddick Vukonich Miller Walk Bradshaw Locako Mailovich Greene Stanley

I want to thank all the contributors on Find A Grave for their dedication and tolerance. They provide a service that enables those of us who neither have the time nor the money to travel throughout the USA and World to find the gravesites of their ancestors. To provide this service out of the goodness of their soul is beyond my ability to compensate them with flowery words of gratitude.
Happy hunting and discoveries, Mary Louise Neal

Mary Ann Caroline Tate/Teeters
I was most likely told by someone else (through "suggest a correction") that her name was Teeters. Now I know why people leave the source names in the bio section.

Children of U.S. Fraze
Can you link Cala Fraze Walker #13534538 and Ora Lillian Fraze Creek #10399876 to show as children of U.S. Fraze?

I did not connect them. You need to contact the owner of the other memorial...

RE: Headstone photo for James Neal
Hi Mary,

Absolutely you may use the photo. Thank you for being so thoughtful to ask for permission. I can locate the original and email to you if you wish. Just let me know.

I'm not related to the NEALs, just photographed and created memorials from the burials in Drakes Creek cemetery in the hopes of helping others.

Best Regards,
