Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired woman who loves doing research. I found out about because one of my genealogy friends sent me the information that my mother's grave was listed here. I am researching the names Harrell, Randolph, Chisum, George, Robinson, Horn, Bailey, Shirley, Howell, Pilant, and related lines. The last three hundred years or so they have all been in the south, except a few distant lines migrated to Ohio and Indiana.

I also love cats, and currently two of them own me!

If I have made any mistakes or omissions, please use the edit tab with the appropriate information so I can correct them. If you are more closely related than I am to any of the memorials I have created, I'll be happy to transfer them to you upon request.

William Daniel Busby
Hello Valita,

Thanks for your outstanding contributions to

There are 2 anomalies that you might consider changing for subject William Daniel Busby buried in Russell Cemetery, Greer County, OK.

1. His information in findagrave is listed twice, once with an excellent autobiography and one without. I suggest removing the listing that does not have the autobiography.

2. The listing with the autobiography has the vital born "1856" and the autobiography has born "1950". Just a typo error.

His wife, Mary Wilson was my g-aunt.

RE: 32080018 W N Lakins
I do not know them. My great grandfather moved east of Rogersville in 1934 but many of our relatives still live in Claiborne County.

Fist, thanks you, Valita, for allowing changes to Addie and Ivy Lakins. Addie's father was my great grandfather. His full name was William Nelson Lakins, but his memorial stone only has his initials: W. N. This is the only info that needs updating and I would appreciate either you making the edits or you allowing me to make them.
Thanks in advance.

Addie was my great grandmother's sister. Ivy was Addie's son.
I would like to add Addie's birthplace, death place, and death date.
I would like to add Ivy's birthplace and death place.
Thanks in advance.

RE: Abagail Robbins Cavender, Sugar Creek Baptist Cemetery
I see them now too. Thanks for making the updates. My original request included family links as well as a bio (slightly different from the one you just added). I didn't include the links to her parents in my second request because I had re-submitted them using the new system on 2/2/2015, so when you get a chance, please look in your list of edits sent to you for review and approve them. Thanks!
