Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started researching the Rock family in 1995 because my father died when I was very young and I needed to know more about him. Then I found that researching my families made them come alive for me. I am hooked on family research!

Thanks to all who contribute to Find-A-Grave. It is truly amazing how many people give of their time.

Please let me know if you see any mistakes.

The pictures I take are for friends and family to use and no need to ask to copy. If you publish or use on another site please give proper credit due. Thank you.

RE: Ellis Cemetery
I was just looking at your message again and realized I'm not sure I ever replied. If I did, sorry for the repeat! I do this in spurts - I get absorbed in it for a while, then sometimes lay off of it for weeks or even months.

In any event, you're welcome! William Green Ellis is my great, great grandfather. When I first began my genealogy in earnest, about 10 years ago, I turned up some info regarding the old Ellis homestead area later being occupied by a family by the name of Tedder. If I remember correctly, I just did some searches in the area and found a concentration of Tedders on B.W. Johnson Road near Causeyville, Miss. I knocked on the door of a Tedder in the area and nobody was home, but spotted a neighbor who was somehow familiar with the history of the road and took me right to the graves. The homeowner was not home, and I really want to go back an introduce myself sometime. Apparently B.W. Johnson Road was once Ellis Road. The Texas Ellises, who have done so much family research and host a reunion each year, raised funds for the marker that is at the site. Four or five area buried there.

Sorry for the ramble!

It took a long time to to get to this point.
I have some update/correction info for you on one of the Memorials.
I have no real need to fix this error, but I know you folks like to get things right.
You can contact me at:
We need to establish communications before I spend any more time with this circuitous e-mail system.

Thank you so much for making the corrections I suggested on her memorial and thank you for posting a picture of their marker. I never would have gotten to Tennessee from WV to get a picture.

Thank you so much for entering this memorial and taking this photo. Paul Evins Brooks was my great grandfather. If you wouldn't mind, can you transfer his memorial to me so I can manage it? Memorial# 125696084 Thanks again. :)

I just saw your note on Mr. Hubbard's memorial. He's been on findagrave for four years and we've been waiting for someone in his family to claim him. Would you like to care for his memorial? My goal is to transfer all of 'my' mariners to family before I get too old to care for them - and I'm getting there fast!! You can either merge the two memorials or leave as is (I've made a link on mine to yours as well). I tried to request a photo for your memorial but I've already reached my limit for the month and was turned down. It wouldn't be a bad idea for you to request one.
Anyway, if you want his memorial, let me know and I'll be only too glad to make the transfer. I'll be gone for a few days so it'll probably be next week before I can do it.

Happy Holidays to you and yours,

Patricia O'Neal
