|Bio and Links|
|Since I was a youngster, I enjoyed listening to the stories the older relatives told. I did not realize that was the beginning of my genealogy interest. Shortly after my husband and I married in 1969, we went to his family reunion. The hostess had a beautiful book about 6 inches thick with family information. (That research is now in the local library in a separate collection.) At that moment, I decided I wanted to do what she did.|
Most of my family took the migration route from the Carolinas through Tennessee, Alabama, and Mississippi "for a spell" and then to Claiborne and Bienville Parishes in northern Louisiana. Major surnames include: Dobbins, Baker, Carter, Hays, Crossland, Caskey, Cantrell, Hammontree, Cox, Bassett, Kilpatrick, White, Harper, Pearson. To my surprise many Quaker families from Newberry, SC are in this line.
My husband's family started their migration from Patrick, Henry, and Pittsylvania Counties in southern Virginia southward through Georgia and Mississippi to the Felicianas in southern Louisiana. Major surnames include: Bennett, Lyons, Young, Mills, Hays, Lilley, Morris, Knight, Moore, Swoope, Hairston, Starnes, Rheams. The Quaker lines in this family orginated in Bucks County, PA.
My husband is very supportive of my hobby/compulsion. We routinely visit courthouses, cemeteries, and archives throughout the South. He is the photographer for the gravesites and headstones added to memorials.
I welcome corrections and additional information from cybercousins.

I am related to Wayne Athol Pearce and wondered if you are not related if you would consider transferring his memorial #19450156 to me so that I could write his biography and add photos.
My Find A Grave is Id#47357320 if you would like to see my work.
your Find A Grave friend,

I have added photos for Edsel & Jo Anne Thurman (37449221).
Jo Anne's photo shows a different DOB as Aug. 16, 1931.
Her Plot data is: The Garden of The Good Shepherd 100 B 2.
Edsel's plot data is: The Garden of The Good Shepherd 100 B 1.
Thanks, Ken Bosso

I believe Rosa Adelle Hays died in 1892- Could you take a look at the stone (there's a photo) and see if you had a typo. Thanks.

|S. Woods||Mays family|
I am related to the Mays family through my great, great grandmother Lucy Elizabeth Mays who married Raiford/Rayford Riley Rhodes. I am also related to the Garner family through my great grandmother, Cynthia Alice Garner who married Francis Barto Rhodes. Archellaus G. Mays and Lucy Elizabeth Mays were siblings. We think that Lucy Elizabeth Mays Rhodes is buried in an unmarked grave somewhere in the Mt. Lebanon Cemetery. Hopefully we will eventually located it so a grave marker can be place on it.
