Bio and Links
Bio Photo Our names are David 'DJ' & Judi. We live in Northwest Tennessee but have a great amount of family from Tallahatchie County, Mississippi.

We have taken a great interest in finding out about family ancestors and preserving cemeteries digitally for future generations.

TRANSFERS: Please go to the memorial you wish to have transferred and request a transfer from there. If you want to manage a relatives memorial, please let us know and we will be glad to transfer it to you (except our own relatives). From the FAQ: Fourth, Explain your relationship in the request! While I do transfer out of guidelines, please let me know your relationship to the person in the memorial, not just "They're a relative."

Find A Grave rules on:

"Is it acceptable to add a memorial for someone who is still living?

Please try to avoid it. In general, we do not encourage adding memorials for individuals who are still living. We do realize, however, that when transcribing a cemetery, it is not always possible to determine if the person is living or not. Please do not add pre-need memorials from (1925-present) to Find A Grave. Memorials for individuals who are alive will be removed when requested (the exception being for 'famous' individuals who already have a burial location in place). You are always welcome to create a 'pre-need' memorial for yourself, if you would like, provided that you have a pre-need headstone already in place in a cemetery."

Ramona Martin
marriage place of Moses Cloninger and Isabelah McGinnis
Hi, The marriage place is listed as Lincoln County, TN, but should be Lincoln County, North Carolina. Also, on the marriage record it says Ebby. Is that a nickname for Isabella? Thanks, Ramona

Mattie E. Lovell Ellis 105591022
Dear Judi,

I have been without a computer for sometime & have just received an email you sent me back in April. Sorry for the delay.

If you would like, I would be happy to transfer her to you so that you can add the information you requested. I would much rather she be with someone who knows so much about her.

"Please add in the bio section that Mattie Estelle Lovell married William Joseph Ellis on January 12, 1898 in Haywood County, TN.

Also, she was the daughter of William Michael Lovell and Sarah L. Stanley

I Have found that her father was William Michael Lovell was born in 1846 in Crockett County, TN and died in Haywood County, TN. Haven't been able to find him in Find A Grave or what cemetery he is buried in.

Michael married Sarah "Sally" L. Stanley on February 24, 1868 in Haywood County, TN. She was born in 1853 in Haywood County, TN to Jonathan Stanley and ? She died in Tennessee.

She and William had seven children in 15 years.

Mattie and William had 3 children; Lee Elmer Lovell (11-6-1899-?), Bert Ellis Lovell (1902-?) and unknown 3rd child.

Thanks...not sure whether you want to add this information. I am trying to find the 2 boys to link to parents.

Childhood Memories
Hi,D Cloninger,
I ran across your name today while doing some work on Find A Grave. For some reason I remembered the name Cloninger. It seems I can remember people from my childhood but not the ones I met yesterday. lol My maiden name was Adams and I am from Memphis. My father was Ruben Adams (Memorial# 157328524). I remember that my parents had friends named David and Fay Cloninger and George and Evelyn Cloninger. Is that your family? I remember my Dad telling me that he was traveling up in Tennessee somewhere and got pulled over by a cop who recognized him. The cop was David Cloninger, Jr. Was that you? I would love to touch base and hear about your family. My email address is on my profile page, if you are interested.

Mary Ann Long wife of Valentine Cloninger
1837 Richard Long Sr of Lincoln Co NC - conveyance of land 70 acres on Buffaloe creek ( he originally purchased in 1814 from Samuel MCWhorter ) to Valentine Cloninger husband of Mary Ann Long . The additional 130 acres was conveyed in 1831 to son, James Long .

I noted your ancestors Mary Ann Long & Valentine Cloninger . I had contracted with a professional genealogist , Ms Kathy Gunter Sullivan to research my Long ancestors of Lincoln Co Nc , in doing so she found a record where Richard Long Sr b. abt 1765 gave 70 acres to Valentine Cloninger in 1837 who was the husband of Mary Ann Long . The other 130 acres of the original land tract on Buffaloe creek Lincoln Co NC was given by my Richard Long Sr to his son my ancestor, James R Long b. 1811 NC .
There is likely a relationship between my Richard Long Sr & James R Long and your Mary Ann Long Cloninger. I also note that your Mary Ann & Valentine Cloninger named their 2nd son John Richard Cloninger. My James R Long named his 1st son John Richard Long and his 1st daughter Mary Ann Long .
Just wanted to share info . By the way my family who are descendants of James R Long & Richard Long Sr have participated on Family Tree , Family Finder testing which is on sale now for $69 . This test identifies relationships such as cousins up to abt 5 generations.
