Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in Memphis, TN, raised in Jackson, MS, and moved to Dallas in 1967.

I am addicted to FindaGrave and genealogy research in general. I have had the good fortune to connect with a number of cousins through this website.

Most of my research is tracing family members in Mississippi.... Panola, Quitman, Calhoun, Yalobusha and Hinds Counties.

My Family Names: White, Vanderberg, Vanderburg, Potts, Jenkins and Hupperich.

My wife's family: Pitt, Sapp, and Newcomer's, mostly from Oklahoma, and Baldridge from Tennessee.

"I have never met a cemetery I did not like", and
"I can not go to a cemetery and take just one picture".

I am also a volunteer photo taker at Grove Hill, Restland and Oakland Cemeteries in Dallas.

If I have added one of your family members or family friends, let me know and I will transfer them to you.


A number of the pictures added and memorials created in the Memphis and North Mississippi area have been contributed by my cousin, Becky Vanderburg Abbott.


Any photograph I have added to any memorial may be used by the general public, without credit to me.

Found Relatives
you so much Mr. White.i gave up searching a few years ago.Today,something said:"try Find A Grave site" I found a grand aunt who died in 2005, a grt-grt grandmother, and 3rd or 4th cousin at same church cemetery.
However, i've not been able to locate my grt-grt grandfathers' death certificate nor his grave. I know he is at Shiloh CME Church Cemetery because his wife was buried there in 1950.Their grandchild is my grand aunt Maud H. Handy memorial#93600865 at Shiloh(Ballentine)CME.
He was Barnie Harris.

RE: William T. Baldridge
Yes, I am related.

William T. Baldridge was my 2 great grandfather. My great grandfather was Alexander Baldridge - William Earl's brother. My grandmother was Mamie Baldridge Elam and my dad is Rudy Elam.

I am also "addicted" to genealogy research and Find a Grave! I appreciate the family links - I can't leave things alone when I notice "disconnects" like husbands and wives that are not connected. Even if there is no personal family connection with me - I still want to fix it!

Thank you, Tom!
