Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a native Tennessean, relocated outside B'ham, AL from south GA. My roots are in Cherokee Co, NC, so I know the frustration of being away from the sources and places I would love to visit often. I have done genealogical research for 7 years, on my Adams and Deweese ancestors. I do a lot of volunteering for various states and sites, trying to pay forward the kindness I've been shown. I have adopted two US soldiers, and enjoy that entire program. I am a medical professional, have four dogs, and a Bombay cat, Hilary. I firmly believe that what you present to the Universe is what comes back to you, and that is how I want to live the rest of my life!

John B Rickles
Thank you very much. He was father of an amazing group of women from St Clair Co I call the Rickles girls. My GGM Ella and her sisters. I will be sharing some wonderful pics. A great memorial day gift. Thank you again for all you do.

Thank you kindly for the transfer of my GGM Mary Etta. - The John B and Mary Etta Rickles plot with Bradley and Steeles are my GGP's and I will be sharing much more that the Rickles Girls as I call them (Daughters of John B and Mary Etta) left from 100 years of Rickles and Pearsons in St Clair Co.

I photographed this Cemetery in 2004 and listed to share on St Clair Genweb for years and then Find A Grave caught on.

Thank you also, for all you do for others looking for ancestors.

Adams Family
Hello Sandra,

You are a descendant of Johnson Adams - s/o: William - s/o: Johnson Adams, Sr. My gg grandAunt Emaline Hill married Johnson Adams, Jr. (bro. to Wm., uncle to Johnson Knight).

It's nice to know there is a descendant working on the Adams Family other than me. Presently, I'm trying to finish the 3rd ed. on all my work, now continuing into a new yr.

Please email me.

Bell Franklin
Hi Sandra,

I noticed that you added the photo for Bell Franklin and was so grateful to find it! Thank you! She is my great great great grandmother. Her son, Ollie Franklin, was my great great grandfather, his daughter, Lena Mae Franklin, was my great grandmother, her son, Jack Franklin, was my grandfather and his daughter, Tracy Franklin Bergmann, is my mother. Whew!

I was wondering if you had any info on Bell's parents, her siblings and her three daughters. It looks like in her death record her parents were John and Martha Lavender (Lavendar?), but I can't find any records to confirm this on Also, I see in the obituary that she had three daughters, but I can't find their names. Also, did she have any siblings? I am struggling and any help you can provide would be wonderful!

Looking forward to learning more about you, too! You can email me at

Warm regards,
April Cain Wright

Hi Sandra,
I saw that you submitted a memorial for F. Hogsed in Ballew Memorial Cemetery in Gilmer Co., GA. I am hoping to take photos of the cemetery but am unable to find it or any info. on it. Could you possibly enlighten me as to it's location. Even general info. would be very helpful!! Any help is greatly appreciated.
God Bless,
