Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm a mother, and cat person. I was a nurse for 30 years. I met and married my husband Dec. 19, 1981. Being his wife was wonderful but then I was widowed suddenly on April 26,2009, after my husband died suddenly of a heart attack while on a fishing trip in Arkansas. Every day now is a struggle. He got me started doing this a couple of years before he died and I enjoy it greatly. I do apologize about slacking off since his death. If I can help anyone find their ancestors then all the hard work is worth it.

RE: regarding the Red family
That's weird. The person who created the memorials in Fellowship-New Hope also took the pics so one would assume they have the correct location... but if you have pictures in Erin, that is a real mystery. Let me know what you discover - my curiosity is piqued now.

Kenneth Smith's obit
Laurie, I tried adding Kenneth obit, and it wouldn't let me. I found out why. A person is not suppose to copy a obit out of a paper, or list living relatives, without asking their permission. It has to do with copyrights. So, I am just going to type it in, as if I wrote it myself. I have already talk to the family, and they are fine with it. They appreciate you thinking of them, and wanting to add this to the memorial. Thank you, Laurie.

Mrs. Moore,
I can sympathize, but not totally understand, about your great loss. I saw my mother go through it, when my dad died. It was like someone pulled the plug on a computer. Mother just shut down, for over a year. It was good that she and daddy lived next door to me. I had to tend to her business; at times, she couldn't even hold much of a conversation, or remember who people were. She totally went into shock. I pray you have some kind of family support during this difficult time. Mother has told me many times, she wouldn't have made it, had it not been for me.
I want to say "Thank You" for allowing me to continue your kind memorial to Ken. His wife wanted me to ask you some questions, and she also wanted me to give you her phone number; she wanted to talk to you. Her name is Senita Bryant Smith. She lives in Meridian, and her number is, 1-601-485-3008. When I told her about the Smith reunion you attended, she told me, Ken's family, always met at Morton, Ms., at the Roseavelt State Park, in the month of August. Thank you again, and I pray for your peace, and the healing of your broken heart. Continue to do your good work for others. After mother came down with Alzheimers, I was busy, but even after I had to put her in a home, I lost my interest in her love of family history, but it is slowly coming back. I have just recently renewed family connections. Take care, Laura, and if you need someone to just listen, sent me an e-mail, and I will respond, as soon as possible. Brenda Bullock

Concerning: Tonya Smith, Shearon...
wanted me to ask you, "How you know her father, Kenneth Ray Smith?" She doesn't recognize your name, but she said to tell you, she appreciates what you did. I hope that you don't mind, that I sent Tonya a picture of your profile. She is a big animal lover too. She has a miniature collie, and three cats, and she had a cat to die. She and her husband have no children.
I'd like to give you my condolences on the loss of your husband. This is a nice thing that you do for people. I got into it, because my mother loved genealogy, but now suffers with Alzheimer's. I have tried to continue setting up memorials to our family members who've passed, since mother is no longer mentally able to continue.
Sincerely, Brenda Bullock

Kenneth Ray Snith
Dear Ms. Moore, my cousin's child, Tonya Smith, Shearon, wanted me to set up her father a tribute on "Find A Grave." When I was trying to set it up, I found she had given me some wrong information, but I changed some things, and found in the process, that YOU had already set up a nice tribute. I am not asking for you to let me take it over, unless you want me to, but I realized that you had put Kenny's last name as "Stevens", instead of "Smith." I don't think I am allowed to correct the information, because I am not the one who sponsored the tribute to Kenny. It doesn't matter who did it; I just promised Tonya, I would set one up, and take a picture to show her. Thank you on behalf of Tonya, and her mother, Senita.
Sincerely, Brenda Bullock
P.S. If you want to contact me, my e-mail address is:

Vance and Sessums

Thanks for your work.
John S. Sessums has been found at the Ego-Coleman Cemetery in Johnston County. He died in 1913.

Letitia died in 1928, but she is not listed on any of the current roles in Stephens Co. OK

They had 13 children and Letitia wound up living with her daughter Maggie Sessums Freeman near the end of her life.

Her burial place hasn't been found yet.

Are you in Oklahoma? My mother's whole family was there since it was Indian Territory and before.

RE: Re: The Vances

Thanks. I've got one couple that is running me ragged. Maybe they are part of the Vance tree you have.

Letitia Vance Sessums (1845-1928) and her husband John S. Sessums (1837-1913) both born in Mississippi and both died in Oklahoma. We've just about got John nailed down in the Ego-Coleman Cemetery in Johnston Co. OK, but Letitia has escaped all my efforts to find her grave.

Thanks a million. Letitia is my 2nd Great Grandmother and I have about 5 or 6 generations or more before her. Both of her parents were born in Ireland in the early 1800's.

Good luck.
