Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been a genealogist for 27 years. I was born in Kansas and grew up in Kansas until I was a sophomore in high school. We then moved to Des Moines, Iowa where I finished high school. I have lived all over the country and traveled in 43 states. I love the history of our country and studying my families along with their friends and neighbors. I keep a huge database of families because I track them as they travel westward. I have helped many people find their ancestors because I have a gift at tracking families, so I want to share that with others. I don't always find everyone, but my percentage rate is at least 95% of the time. They call me the sleuth!! One of my friends once told me "ya can't hide from you!"

My father was adopted in 1920 and I found our biological family in 1992 when he was 72 years old. I am willing to help adoptees try to find their families, especially the stolen children of Georgia Tann of the Tennessee Children's Home Society in Memphis, Tennessee.

I recently completed research for Hewitt Clarke's new book, "Money and Blood" and am currently doing research for another new book he's going to publish. The story features a section on the family of Filmore Johnson and his wife, Betty Levy and the self made million, Robert Johnson who started BET television, whom is a descendant of Filmore Johnson.

If you use any of my data all I asked is that you give me credit for my work.

Essie or Flessie Bowman
I am adding some information and pictures for Oakwood Cemetery in Hickory. I see your name on several of the Bowman entries. I have a picture of a headstone for a Flessie or Essie Bowman who may have been a spouse for Wade Bowman. Does that ring a bell in your family research? I haven't added the picture yet. I wanted to get the name correct.

Carolyn -

The reason I am asking about Isaac White is just this reason: I am working on a project to protect the integrity of the actual participants of the Battle of King's Mountain. One person in particular, Trish Carden, has done a great disservice to history in general by posting online her version of the Roster of the participants. She, however, has taken great liberties with reality. She has included many soldiers who fought with Sevier and Shelby in other battles and not specifically the Battle of King's Mountain.

I am trying to identify the correct parties.

Thank you for your help.

who is the correct Isaac White - do you know where he is buried? Is this your ancestor?

Hi Carolyn,
I just want to thank you again for all the Perkin Family transfers you have giving me. Maybe now I can fill in some of the holes in my family tree, and thanks to you I now have a lot of info. to start with.

Thank you so much for all your help with the memorial! I don't know how you did everything so fast, but I really appreciate the way you solved the problem. You're one of the nicest, most helpful contributors I've met on FindaGrave!
