Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been interested in my family heritage since I was a young child. I remember asking my grandmothers to "write down the names" Thankfully, they did and I had no idea just how many names there would be :-) I have been compiling and researching all those names for years. I am so thankful for this website. I now have a place to put all the pictures and newspaper clippings my grandmothers saved. I hope they can benefit other family members who may be searching their roots.

Mary Ann Riddlespurger Yancey
Hello, I have Mary Ann's surname as Smith on my tree - I got this info from other trees. Do you know if she was married previous to marrying Wesley Yancey? Wesley is a direct ancestor of mine and would love to know more about Mary Ann. Thanks very much and kudos to you for all your wonderful findagrave work!

Mary Dooly Gann
I may be wrong, but I think you have the cemetery wrong. Rose Hill is north of Wapanucka. The story is said that she was buried south of Wapanucka in a freshly plowed field. I went 3 miles south and there is an unmarked Brown Cemetery (sadly very unkept and probably on private property) on the left hand side. I checked it out and they have some markers around the 1900's. Just wanted to see what ya thought... I am her GGG Granddaughter through Dicie.

RE: sarah dozier thornton
Hello Cathy, thanks so much for your reply. In a phone conversation with her grandson (now deceased) he said she was a tall thin woman who gathered her home remedies in the woods as well as basket making materials. She sat on her barn floor and wove baskets amd that she was 1/4
Indian. He spent a lot of time with her as a child. I will keep searching and if I find verification I will pass it on to you. Thank you again, Maryann

Re Gerena Curl
Hi Cathy,

I would think Gerena would be buried with her spouse, Remembrance Hughes Curl jr at the Highland Cemetery, Mystic in Appanoose County.
I've requested a photo of his memorial marker, but it has not been filled on Find A Grave.

Have you checked to see if she is at his site?

I would really like to solve this mystery of my great grand uncle & aunt.

Thanks for adding her to Find A Grave.

sarah dozier thornton
Hi Cathy, do you have any information in regard to Sarah being of Indian heritage? Her grandson told me she was 1/4 Indian. Haven't found any verification of this. She was the mother of Sarah Thornton Shettleworth I think and my GGG grandmother. Thank you, Maryann Griggs
