Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in (born and raised) Lauderdale County, Alabama. My roots run deep as my ancestors were here before Lauderdale County became a County.
My interest in History and Heritage started at a very young age, when I would sit in my Aunt's lap and listen to all the stories about my relatives.
Before this internet technology, I spent many, many hours on rolls of unindexed microfilm at the library looking and tracing my roots.
My lines are, Favors, Springer, Thompson, Hillis, White, Howard, Williams, Newton, Powers, Belew, Belue, Shelton, Downs, McKinney, Harvey, Phillips,
Allen, Rice and Whitehead.

The memorials I do on FAG are in Lauderdale and Colbert County. As time permits, I photograph cemeteries in my area.

Thanks, Joy and please do me the favor of letting me know when I have made a duplicate, as well! It is often easy to make that kind of mistake. A difference in spelling can make ALL the difference!

Thomas Edward Smith - Obituary
Would you please add the newspaper publication information for his obituary, which you've so kindly listed. Also, through Ancestry.com I've found not only am I related to the Williams Family, but the Barnett & Springer families as well. Have you found these lines have crossed more than once? Also, you put me in touch with family who are related to the James C. Williams family buried in Hill Cemetery in Antioch. Could you give me the connection again? She knew my great-grandmother Sarah Magdelene Pauline (Williams) Miles.

James Thomas Favors
Hi, Joy,

This is Melonie (granddau of Bob & Eva Favors) and I have done quite a bit of research on the company that our ancestor served in while in the Civil war. I've created a timeline, with other info, and wondered if you have already done this. If not, I'll be happy to share it with you. Is the aol address here still a good address?

Thanks,
Melonie Hanson

RE: Betty Jean Mitchell Thigpen
No need for a transfer, I found Thigpen's in my family tree and haven't gotten to far into it yet to know if they are related. You can tell when I send the wrong obit, LOL. Thank you for letting me know.
