Bio and Links
Bio Photo I research many family lines>> They come from Pa to NC/TN, from KY to TX.Willing to take those of my family lines, extended families & those in our Smothers Tribe DNA project to manage when I run across them. I am glad to submit various family memorials as the info is gathered & given to me. It is my passion as a genial genealogist to assist others as much as possible.

..I like this from members pages "Let's make it a goal to add as much info, as we can possibly document, to these memorials."
.."I enjoy reading contributors Bio's but it's called that for a reason but Not, to use the space to reiterate guidelines by a contributor who feels the need to preach to others about how they should make their memorials. Believing we are all adults & know the guidelines most all do act accordingly & do not need preaching."
.."Any and all info or pics I have uploaded are meant for SHARING! I just don't understand anyone thinks different, if you don't want to share, than DON'T put them on a public site!"

Death certificates may be added via the "Add a photo" button on the memorial page. [that should end that discussion]Those who say not to add them are looking at them way too negative! Unlike many I appreciate DC's as I believe they help family understand why, for example, one might died so young or perhaps there was some hereditary disease involved, it's important to visitors and family, about inherited health issue. DNA test called 23and me helps families know inherited fatal issues; passed from generations down.
Also DCs help show parents, where born and has some good info 'guides' otherwise not known, so I for one, really like them posted and appreciate the effort. I see way too often where memorial folks assume a person dies where they are buried and often that is just not the case, if its a family plot and person died elsewhere, DC's really help distinguish that fact that family is more often than not, no matter where died, are buried with family, even being shipped there. I see no reason for DC's to be viewed as detrimental at all but enlightening.

"The Dash" based on little line on tombstone, between the dates of birth-death; ultimately, is a symbol represents each day spent alive on earth; how one spends the "dash" is what really matters; memorials hopefully give a glimpse into lives of that DASH!

Living on a working ranch, happily retired; heartfelt Passion for Genealogy; immensely enjoy working with members, helping folks connect with their ancestors; happy to make links, corrections & transfers. Esp appreciative of gravestone photographers; big Cudos!!Many kind thanks leaving flowers of ancestor memorials!
~Happy Trails!

PS-Not sure WHO deleted my pet peeve of going to my memorials, signing MY name and adding a forget me not flower I do NOT have in my scrapebook, but STOP IT! IT'S BEING DONE AGAIN PLUS DELETING SOME OF MY OWN SCRAPEBOOK FLOWERS! and JFYI I own our DNA flower token, no one else does, NO ONE, leave it ALONE and stop deleting it!!

Smothers in Decatur County, TN
Amanda Smothers Crawley was my 2nd great grandmother and I'm reaching out to you in hope that you have any information about her and her ancestry. She was born about 1860 in Tennessee, most likely in Decatur County. Her parents were E. Jerndin/Jourdin Smothers and Susan A. Smothers (possible maiden name Maness). I have located their 1860, 1870, and 1880 census records. In the 1880 census, Jerndin/Jourdin & Susan have relocated to New Madrid County, Missouri and I can find no trace of them after that. Their son Tom appears in the 1900 census in Pemiscot County, Missouri. I have not been able to find records of Jerndin/Jourdin Smothers prior to the 1860 census and I have not located a marriage record for him and Susan. Other people on show his parents as John Smothers (1814-1849) and Molly Benscoter Smothers (1815-1849) but I see no documentation for this - I do find a John and Molly Smothers in the 1850 census in LaPorte County, Indiana, but I don't have any indication that they had a son named Jerndin/Jourdin.

I have entered more information concerning Mary and Charles Busby. Find A Grave would not let me do any editing or make links because you may have editing pending. I did all I could do for now. Thanks

Thank you so much for the reminder that he is between the stones. I think I knew that years ago, but had forgotten it. Thanks again

Nena - Thank you for the requests, hope to work with you again. Also, I wanted to tell you that the "bell for John's grave" you mentioned on the John Huffman memorial is a photo of his urn for his cremains. His wife's are in a "book-style" urn, more common in this mausoleum.
Thanks again, Stephen
