Bio and Links
Bio Photo I became involved with family history when my mother broke down and cried because she didn't know where her mother was buried. My grandmother died when my mom was only 3 years old. I then set out to find my grandmother's burial place along with many other family members that mother had no idea where their graves were. Mother knew hardly anything about her mother's side of the family. All I knew from mother's details was we came from a long line of coal miners and moonshiners. Now after 20 years of research my tree is still growing and being refined. I have found out much more about mother's side of the family, but I hold a deep despair in my heart because I will never know my father's family history. My father lived under a false name and never revealed to my mother who he really was. I know how it feels to just have a little morsel of hope in finding out about who you are. I am here to help give someone some hope.

UPDATE: Since I wrote this Bio nearly two and half years ago my mother has passed. Lenora Attress Hoover Hawley b.Aug 12, 1927 Crummies Creek Ky, d. Sep. 12, 2012 Sylacauga,Al. I miss you momma so much and hold so dear to my heart the stories you would love to share. Your finally home! and with the mother you never knew...10/27/2012

Hey Catherine,

I just discovered Find a Grave and see that you posted the pic of my dad's gravestone: Lawrence Turner.

Thanks. Did you submit pics of the entire graveyard at New Home?

Crawford Graves memorial
Catherine, I certainly understand how this happened as I have almost made the same kind of mistake myself, so please don't feel you have to apologize as it was an honest mistake. Crawford is a special family friend and I didn't want there to be a memorial when he is still living. I am transfering the memorial back to you and I thank you for taking care of this.

Gilbert baby boys & Graves transfer
Thank you so very much for creating and transfering the two Gilbert baby boys' memorials to me.....I have just linked them with their parents. You also transfered Crawford Graves' memorial to me however, he is not deceased and therefore the memorial should be deleted. I cannot do this since you were the one who originally created it. Would you please do that?
Thank you so much.
