Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in 1926. I started working on my family tree in 2000. I was learning what little I know about computers at the same time.Had never touched one until my children talked me into it in 1999 (Nov) For Christmas that year my Daughter and Son-in-law gave me the Family Tree Maker.I had a few notes that I had writen down from my Mother. Luck would have it that I found her family in Kentucky with a lot of help from Doug Moore. At this time I am working on the families from around Allen, Adair, Barren, Metcalfe, Warren and Monroe County, Kentucky, Warren County, Tennessee, and Caswell County, North Carolina.Hagan, Crisp, Goodman, Garman and Rowe in KY. Crisp, Warren, Anderson, Snipes, Masey and Henegar in Tennessee. Crisp, Warren, Cooper and many more in North Carolina.I Live in California. Seems that I have left the impression that I live in places where I am searching. I don't travel around anymore since 2005.Thanks to all who have posted memorials.

RE: Treva Bradshaw

Allie Zelma (Cunningham) and James Wesley Gilley are not on FindAGrave.

James A. Cunningham - 17790927
Mary Frances Mitchell-Cunningham - 17790931

My guess is that Allie and James are buried at the Caney Branch Cemetery in Morrison, TN. When I get out that way, I'll see if I can't find their graves and do a memorial.

I see you've left flowers at the memorial for my gg gf Francis Brandon & that you are cousin - I would love to know the link. There are so many of us who have corresponded thru the years, but I think I've missed you.

Would you like me to transfer him to your care? I am not related to him and would prefer he be with someone he is related to.

RE: Smartt Photos
You're welcome, Joy. No, not a relative, just passing through. Because of taking some extra photos, though, I hope to find a real, live relative for you pretty soon! --Harriet

Buford Comer Wood
You have a note in the flower section on the memorial page of Buford Comer Wood that he is your 1st cousin once removed. Just wanted to let you know that I posted photos of his headstone and footstone today :) His memorial number is 67516518. Also, I added photos to his 2nd wife and first wife's family the other day :)
