I became interested in genealogy about 1976 after my grandmother gave me two large oval framed portraits of her father and grandmother. I hung them on my wall and would sit for hours wondering about them. Who exactly were they, where did they come from. This curiosity has taken me from Lawrenceville, Illinois to Paris, Tennessee. From Hayti, Missouri to Ellistown, Mississippi. From Smithland, Kentucky to Graves County, Kentucky. I have met so many distant cousins. Cousins that had pictures of my ancestors which had been passed down to them. Thank you all. The search as been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. If you find errors on findagrave that I have entered, please message me and I will gladly make the necessary correction. If any of those that I have placed on findagrave are your ancestors, send me a message and I will gladly turn them over to you so you may add your information.|
TO THOSE WHO SLEEP IN UNMARKED GRAVES: We have searched diligently for your identity but too many times in vain. You have a right to a stone with your name and dates marking the six feet of earth where you sleep. Many of you once had stones, but time has taken its toll. Your descendants live in faraway places or are no more. The land has changed ownership many times. The fences are gone and livestock wander your graves. Grasping hands always wanting a few more feet of land, and now your gravesite is lost forever to a subdivision. We know you were placed there by loving hands and broken hearts many years ago. We know that you were happy; you were sad; you laughed; you cried; and that you loved. We gaze in admiration when we find the tall cedar trees, the yellow buttercups, the blue periwinkle and the white bridal wreath blooming each spring for you, and in loyalty to the one who planted them there on your grave.

Hi Robbie. Lucinda who married Lafayette A. Puckett was a daughter of Thomas Jackson Hall and his first wife Caroline Palmer.
(Lucinda's death certificate names him, not her.)
|Gary Wilkes||Joseph N.Phelps & Elizabeth Bettie Price|
Thanks Robbie I do not have original marriage licence. On LDS site they have 2 dates, thats why I used both.
|pcarney||RE: MARGARET JOYNER|
Wow Robbie, thanks so much for the info in Margaret's husband. Yes, he kinda dropped off the map. I'm so appreciative of all the work you did to find him. HS Joyner would have been his son Henry Stephen Joyner.

Thank you for posting the photo of her tombstone on Find-a-Grave.
The Organ Cemetery is the same as Black Island Cemetery north of Hayti, Mo. There is a mention of it in the Historial Society Map Book in Caruthersville, Mo.

|Nancy Jane Faulk White Adams||RE: Albert Birdwell|
Thank you so much.
|Mari Bishop||RE: Thank You|
More than happy to leave a tribute to your mom. I was on to post a new one. I had another cousin to pass away from cancer. I added her. I get very emotional doing this but I feel better after seeing it up there to honor her.
Wishing you a great week....Mari
|Mari Bishop||Thank You!|
Robbie, I am not sure if I ever thanked you for adding the cemetery photo to my dear aunts memorial. Her name is Bernice Geneva Hughes-Dunevant. I truly appreciate it! I have not been well and I feel bad that I haven't been able to attend my memorials on here as I want...but maybe better soon.
