So many people have said to me "don't you have better things to do with your time then drag up the past?" I tell all of you now, I do, but I don't.
My father, Duel Glen Going, was only 5 years old when he lost his father, Alonzo Stubblefield Going, to Typhoid. My grandmother, Pearl Cathern Holt-Going Phillips, then took her 4 children and moved to Oklahoma and there was very little contact between her and the "Going" family. Therefore, I never knew this family and very little was ever spoken of them.
My feelings are, in each family, someone is called to find the ancestors. To put flesh on their bones and make them live again. To tell the family story and feel that somehow the "old ones" know and approve. To me, doing genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts but, instead, breathing life into all who have gone before me.
I feel I am the story teller of the "GOING"(plus many more surnames)tribe. I feel I have been called as if it were by my genes. Those who have gone before me cry out to me: "Tell our story." So, I'm trying. In finding them, I somehow find myself.
For me, it started on a beautiful November day in the 1980's. I stood in front of my Grandfather Alonzo Going's grave in the Masonic Cemetery, Pocahontas, Randolph County, Arkansas, and asked him, and all the other family gravestones around him, "Who were you? Where did you come from? Why didn't I get to know you?" With tears streaming down both of my eyes, I looked up into a cloudless sky of blue and vowed, at that very moment in time, I would not stop until those questions were answered.
If you have time to visit one of my family members, it would be greatly appreciated.

just because someone has placed a memorial to an individual and has spent time finding the info, and someone else finds more info on that person than was in the bio in the beginning and adds it to the original work, doesn't make a duplicate. It is just bringing that info on that person or famiuly up to date. They are adding to it, which makes it more in depth and interesting to somewone else thats looking for that person.

I am hoping that you will transfer two accounts to me, as James was my great-grandfather's brother and Josephine Maynard Matheny Hawkins was his wife. I ordered the Civil War Records for James so I have information about both of them.

Thanks for the photo, Shirley!
|robinkaspar||RE: Flora Rhodes photo request|
Ok, so since you have the photo, do I need to click the photo request button on Clarence's memorial, or can you just add it?
|robinkaspar||Flora Rhodes photo request|
Hi Shirley, thank you so much for taking care of Flora's photo request for me.
I have a question because I haven't done this before. Since it's a double stone with Flora's husband, is there a way I can add the photo to his memorial (#18683716)? Or is that something only you can do, or something the memorial owner has to do?
