Bio and Links
Bio Photo Within a few minutes of a friend telling me about Find A Grave, I found my great-great grandparents' gravestone in Hopedale Cemetery, Christian Co., MO. They were Gabriel and Talitha Reynolds McMullin. First I let out a shriek! then I sat looking at the picture, tears falling down my face. I never thought I'd see their final resting place. I've added old photos of their family to their pages. I'm still hoping to make contact with someone there. (Success!) Thank you to their visitors for honoring them with flowers and tokens, they are appreciated.

Since that day I have found other ancestors on Find A Grave. A special thank you to M. Correll and "jtf" for so many of the Wayne County, KY memorials and photos. The photos taken by Ronald Bicknese in Bills Creek Cemetery are also very special treasures. I will always be thankful for his effort to find my York 4th great-grandparents in that remote cemetery. Thanks to Robie Prater for his many photos and book HACKWORTHS AND RELATED FAMILIES in Floyd County KY.

Sincere appreciation to God's Special Angel for sponsoring our Mommaw and Poppaw Estes. They were sweet, gentle people. Thanks to all who have left flowers and tokens for them, and for other family and friends.

My friend's missing father:
Sgt. J.W. Davis. When his final resting place is found an 'in memory' marker will be placed with his parents in Lucedale, MS. Flowers and tokens will be appreciated.
Many thanks, for Linda's daddy.

May I use your lovely photo of Bessie Viola York for my tree, please? I will put "provided by D. Singleton Shell" as I always do with others.

RE: Emma Ely Riverside CA
Did I understand correctly that you believe that the Random Acts of Genealogical Kindness site is defunct? Or just that there were no volunteers in Riverside County registered yet? In any case, it appears that RAOGK is still operating. Good luck ~ Jan

Sorry, Bessie Lee was married to another of my dads brothers. Columbus Dewey Howard. Another Bessie married William Lester.

RE: Howard connections
I guess I'm related then. Seymour is my 2nd cousin 2x removed. His daughter, Bessie Lee was my aunt. She married my dads brother William Lester Howard. Small world isn't it?

RE: Eastern KY
A distant cousin married Carroll Adams. #78557438. My dad was from Magoffin County. I have ancestors all over eastern KY. g-grandparents and grandparents had a bus load of children. Most of them from Magoffin, but Rowan, Johnson, Pike and Madison. I think 75% of Magoffin are Howard's.
I have sent two requests to F.A.G. to delete the memorial in the wrong cemetery. Nothing seems to work.Creator was contacted too, but just ignored the message. I'll try another method soon. Anyway, thanks again. Barbara
