Bio and Links
Bio Photo it is because of my precious mother that I became interested in Family History, Family was most important to her. That passion was taken away from her. And we were framed.

Regarding Transfer Requests:

If you are NOT a family member within the Find A Grave guidelines and/or If you are a "collector" do not bother to request a transfer.

IF you are REQUESTing a transfer go to the memorial you wish to have transferred click on the edit tab
And make your request there.

Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents.

Explain your relationship in the request! Any non-direct relatives (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc) are not required to be transferred. Keep in mind that the original contributor may also be related to the memorial and may not make the transfer. Bulk surname requests should not be made.

Please use the edit feature within the memorial to let me know of any corrections/addition/transfer requests. Any requests made on this page will be deleted.

"The goal at Find A Grave should not be to manage all of your family members. If you have information to add, you should suggest it to the current manager and they should make the changes."
~Jim Tipton, creator of Find A Grave

I am more than happy to edit, add info and/or bio(s), and/or link family members.

RE: Glad to see your back!!
LOL...I just now found your message letting me know you were happy to see me back! So sorry I've missed seeing it all these years. Yes, I was taking care of an 88 year old cousin who passed away in October 2010.

RE: Twin Baby Byrum
Thank you, Carolyn. I am actually distantly connected with James Overton Hill's 3rd wife, Mary Parolee "Minnie" Woolley. (she was my 3rd cousin 3X removed! ha!) Anyway, I had stumbled on to Octa's story that you transcribed and put on Findagrave, and I was intrigued. She must have been a really interesting lady! Loved her story and it had so much info in it, love the way she described life back then.

I got involved in the Hill family search, trying to sort out James Overton Hill's many children ---and which ones belonged to each wife. I believe wife #1 died young, wife #2 died after giving birth to twins (Seems as though twins run in that family) and then my relative came along as wife #3.

Hope your hubby is recovering. I know how stressful that is. My hubby has had quad bypass surgery TWICE; I lost my mom, both in-laws and my youngest brother (he battled MS for 30 years) all 2011-2013. :(

Thanks for the info.

Thanks for the updates
Thanks for the updates to Homer Oliver Smith's memorial. Thanks also for adding him to find a grave!

I appreciate your hard work and dedication to helping us find our ancestors. It is so much fun to see virtual family groups and pedigrees of our kin start to link together at find a grave thanks to dedicated volunteers like you. I am sure that your precious mother would be proud of what you are doing.

your maiden name. I have a John Mackey who married
Mary Porter in the Augusta-Rockbridge area of Virginia. He was born around 1703 and died 1773 and

They were Scots-Irish.
