Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Sonya A. Bayles, I was born in Bastrop, La on May 5, 1947. My parents were Ochoa Bayles and Mary Alice Day Bayles. My father was born in La, and my mother in Miami Florida. We moved to Miami when I was 6 years old and I pretty much grew up in Florida. Dad moved around quite a bit and I married a local guy from Gainesville, Ga. who it seems moved around a lot also, so for years I moved a lot. I have 2 sisters, Frances Mae and Amanda Lynn, and 2 brothers Vincent Ochoa and Mark Levi. I belong to The Chruch Of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints and have a great love for family history work, I spend many hours gathering srories, pictures and history of my family. I have 3 sons Enoch Shane Smith, Brannon Levi and Gerald Floyd.
I work in the medical field and also teach classes in CPR & First Aid for the American Red cross in my spare time. Thru the years I have worked at a lot of different things and it took along time for me to find my nitch in life.

I am now retired due to ill health. I spend my time doing phone and email support for newFamilySearch and am really learn a lot more about research and it is a joy to me. I also have more time now to spend time adding memorials to findagrave and also to take more pictures in cemetery.

I enjoy doing family history , working in the garden and long walks on the beach. I enjoy time with my family.

Andrew Daniel's memorial
Thank you ever so much. He was the pastor of the church I attended when I was about 13 years old.

RE: Billy Westmoreland
Thanks, Ms. Sonya

I'm getting old. Never realized I did it twice. And thank you for the photo. I am requesting a photo of his daughter. She is buried beside him. She died as a young girl and I just this minute remembered her name. Thank you.

Thank you for the photo!
Ms. Bayles, thank you so much for taking the time and effort to photograph (and add to her Find A Grave Memorial) Ollie Mae Arnold Johns' side of what was obviously a joint grave marker monument (with her husband, Elliot Felton Johns?). Did you, by any chance, seize the opportunity to take a photo of his side of the grave marker monument as well? If so, I would be even more grateful if you would add that photo to his Find A Grave Memorial # 64113048. Again, I can't begin to tell you how much I appreciate the great job that you did in answer to my request! Judi

RE: Basil Von Bayles
Hey Sonya,
I was just wondering why they buried him where they did since the rest of the family is buried at Ruggs Bluff? Is it because of the way he died! Such a sad fate! But there's a little girl buried next to him so now he's not all alone!
