Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a genealogy junkie! I am not as "owner" of graves, nor am I a "Collector" of names. I am a retired lady who has the time to comb records and record names that are not yet on this site. Recently, I had the joy of adding 2 small cemeteries to Findagrave. Something pulled at my heart as I listed babies, families and individuals that I could find NOTHING about. How I hope someone finds their loved ones because of the few hours I spent typing.

I discovered Find A Grave when I was doing a web search looking for information my great great grandfather. Imagine my delight when I found his grave listed by a kind gentleman who was not even related. I decided then, if I visited a cemetery, I would write every grave down, just in case someone else was looking for their relative. I did not ask for a transfer of that grave, I just thanked him for giving of his time to list my families graves.

I have had the joy of meeting many wonderful people who use this site.

TRANSFERS: I will transfer managements of graves UNLESS I AM DIRECTLY RELATED. Please send your request by edit and I will check my family tree. If your requested name is not in my tree, I will gladly transfer it. If it is there, I will explain my relationship to that person and why I do not wish to transfer. Please understand my wish to keep my family grave listings. I am if you had taken the time to walk the cemeteries, search the records and list the names, you would feel the same.

I appreciate all the kind additional information and corrections. (Sometimes we all suffer from fat-finger syndrome and miss the right key!) Forgive me if I have made an error on your loved ones grave. Let me know and I WILL CORRECT IT.

The main names I am researching in my family: Knowles-Sandlin, Patterson - Brown, Gornto-Allen, Delaney-Roebuck, Entrekin- Martin, Beall-Watts and Holcombe -Watson.

And my husband's family, Miner-Hughes, Nail-Bibb, Freeman-Gantt and Rimel- Headrick.

Ezekiel Brown
Sorry I have my dates wrong about Florida~
If Hugh Brown had four children as of 1782, the last two children I have listed (Hugh Brown, Jr. and David Brown) weren't born yet. Who are the other children? I believe Ezekiel is one of the older children. I also think Hugh, Sr.'s wife was Elizabeth Crawford (no real proof as yet).

Ezekiel Brown
I have a break through! While I was looking into my great-grandmother's 2nd husband's family, the Nebekers, I came across my great-grandmother's son by Wiley Nebeker. His name was "Hugh Brown Nebeker!" I believe this is a major clue as to who Ezekiel Brown's father was....Hugh Brown, Sr. Ezekiel must be one of the two older children who went with the family to Florida but whose names are not listed on the census. Hugh, Sr. went to Florida with four children, but only two of them were named. I knew that my great-grandmother had a son named Hugh, but I didn't know his middle name was "Brown" until I did more research. Good grief! Right in front of my nose! I don't have a birth certificate for Ezekiel but military records indicate that he was 21 or 23 in 1815. It just makes so much sense. In fact, Marguerite Mathews thought that Hugh Brown, Sr. might be his father. What are your thoughts? Kathi

Your Bio
I was impressed with your bio and guess we think alike. I really hate the numbers game and believe info belongs to us all and I'll always transfer (well except for that one really rude snotty demand I had anyway). I know there is a Pvt. Thomas Knowles from TN in the Confederate Cem. at Huntersville, WV, thought he may be a connection to you. And my kids (on their dad's side) have a GGgrandpa Headrick in WV. Do yours go up that far? I'm the genealogist in the county library and a reenactor so I get to do history all the time. Just wanted to say hello.

My paternal Grandmother is Hess SPRADLING Find A Grave # 109739731.
My great Grandfather was Judge James Matthew Spradling Find A Grave # 81229364.

I knew them both well.

Please explain your relationship to the SPRADLING family here so it is accessible to Find a Grave Administrators.

Best wishes,
Betty Sheely
