|Bio and Links|
I was raised in Monticello, FL, where my parents and siblings currently reside. Following my retirement from the United States Navy (Submarines), I settled in Hansville, WA - which is rural community across the Puget Sound from Seattle. I enjoy seeing Seattle from a distance, but not actually going there. I suppose I'll always be a small town boy at heart.|
I have been researching my family roots, off-and-on, for the last 20 years. Find A Grave is a natural outlet for my interests in this area.
With regards to memorials I have posted, I do not want to be guilty of playing a numbers game. If you are a family member I will gladly transfer the memorial to you when I have completed posting information I have researched. I will also transfer memorials to anyone who has adopted a particular cemetery for research and upkeep. For instance, I recently surveyed the Lamont Walker Cemetery and cleaned most of the headstones before I photographed them. Maybe you are interested in doing the same.
Take time to seek out those small forgotten cemeteries. I know, in the southeastern US, most of the African American cemeteries are almost universally over looked. Since the maintenance of these cemeteries is not up to par with the white cemeteries (usually across the fence) many of the headstones will soon be unreadable.

|Vance Pollock||Tyus family|
Jim, Thanks for including memorials for this forgotten little family from Lamont, Jefferson Co., FL. I just happened to stumble across some records which indicated that Sallie Tyus, wife of Joshua Nicholson Tyus, was the daughter of Nancy Pollock, a previously "lost" cousin in my family who died while Sallie was just a young girl. Glad you're giving some attention to these little neglected plots. Merry Christmas! -Vance
|Tracie Crawford||Margaret Cross Shiver|
This is my gggrandmother - she is not buried as a Shiver. She is buried as Dorinda Beville in Sumter County. She divorced Isaac in 1869 and then married Dr. Robert Beville. She was the daughter of Dixon and Rachel McNeese Cross. Her daughters with Isaac were Emma Virginia (Jennie) and Lougenia. Jennie married John Crawford and lived in Leon County and Eugenia Lola who married Benjamin Franklin Zipperer. She is buried in Burnham cemetery. Jennie is most likely buried with John in Wakulla County - grave is unmarked. Thanks.

Could you direct me to this Cemetery?
|Arthur Hammond||Jeannette Johansson|
A little early? We just laid her to rest, yesterday, the 29th. Added photos, to the posting. I am her nephew, Art Hammond. Thanks for the posting.
|Epictetus||RE: Billy Hartsfield|
Thank you for your kindness. I'll take good care of Billy. He was our guide on the Aucilla River for many years and worked for my father at Po Boy's Truck Stop in Lamont. He was like an older brother to me. I was devastated when he was killed, esp. knowing that he could have DROS'd but wanted to OJT on Chinooks. I joined in 1974 and was stationed at Ft Lewis, across Puget Sound from you, w/ A Co. 2nd Ranger Bn.
Thank you for your service, as well.
But do you know who his parents were?
Could you please tell me who your grandfather's parents were? I'm trying to trace an Abraham (Ross) Branch, born Oct 1879 in Georgia. I found one on the Social Security Death Index and it said that he died in Jefferson County, FL 1967.
|Helen Strickland||Shout Out!|
Hi Jim, just saw your name on a memorial and thought about shouting out to say hello. It has been awhile. I am still adding information on the Palmer Cemetery in Jefferson that you transferred to me. I go over there about once a year to see it. Again, thank you for the transfer. I hope you are doing well.
Received through McCarty - Many thanks!
You may benefit by using Washington State Archives Online. Sadly, deaths prior to 1908 are largely undocumented. Happy hunting!
