Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have always been interested in genealogy and loved walking through cemetery's. While doing my family tree I found this site.
My husband is a great help to me since my main cemetery interest is in Land Between the Lakes on the Southern end. People were forced out of the area by the government to make it a public recreation area. Most of the cemeteries in the area can be traced back to the 1800's. The cemeteries have been neglected and vandalized.
Interest in Briggs, Cox, Wilks, Amster,Purnell, Kent, Sykes,Sikes, Wofford, and Russell.

Any of my personal family photo's I have decided to share on this site are NOT to be downloaded for any reason.

If I take a photo for you, you don't need my permission to download it and use it however you see fit.

Thank you!

I just noticed that you sponsored my son's page. Thank you so very much! ❤

I see Cox as a name you research. My great grandparents are Cox.

Again, thank you! What an incredibly nice thing for you to do. God bless ❤

Lucy Neal Willis Balling
Lucy Neal Willis Balling is the daughter of Jessie Mead Wilks and Rhoda Catherine Hilton, as is Hattie B. and five other children. If you will send me your email address, I'll be happy to send you what I have on the Hilton line, as that's my area of interest. I have a short bio on Jessie which lists his parents, but I have not pursued the Wilks' line further back.

Purnell, Fred
I can't be sure but I believe he married Margaret around 1965 as her ssn record reflects a name change. Also there was a daughter, Helen R Purnell 1928-1955 to Ruth and Fred. I am not related, however have access to ancestry and a few Cook county records. Both confirm fred's dates and parents.

Thank you for the correction to Elizabeth's country of birth!
Do you happen to know what her maiden name was?

Best regards,
