Bio and Links
My name is Karen Palmer,
My decendents are the Morgan's, Stilley's, Bassett's, Altum/Altom's, Yeates, Sims, Pursley's, Allen's, and many others.
My goal is to submit as much info. on my family as I can, so that this info. will not be lost.
I hope that these interments I have entered will help many of the genealogist out there who are looking for information, on their family members. I have enjoyed this so much. If anyone see's additions or corrections that need to be made please feel free to contact me.
I dedicate these interments to the late Mrs. Amy Hafford Barron (Oct. 30, 1911 - September 24, 1999) of Gainesville, Texas, with whom I received much of the information on the Altum/Bassetts. She was an avid genealogist and a very nice lady. I think she would be pleased that her recorded information, will reach out to so many.
I also dedicate these to my late Uncle Bill Stilley for helping me to realize how important family is, past, present, & future. Thanks for taking me to all those cemeteries!!

Harrell's of Union County, AR
Hello,
I saw that you have added a couple of pictures of Harrell's buried in Rehobeth Cemetery in Union County, El Dorado, Arkansas.
Louisa Harrell Slaughter was my 3rd Great Grandmother. She married my 3rd great grandfather John Kimbrough Slaughter.
Would you happen to have anymore Harrell or Slaughter Pictures?
Are you related to the Harrell's? If so, How? If you don't mind.
