Bio and Links
I primarily create and manage memorials of persons related to me or my wife.

Please ask permission to use a photo I have posted. A number have been captured and posted on Ancestry family trees without permission.

Will gladly answer questions about any memorial I have created or on which I have posted photos.

Those of you who are serious about researching family history shoud be cautious about family links indicated on Findagrave or Ancestry family trees. There is a notable lack of scholarship and attention to detail among some who post information to both sites.

Sara Vivian Thomas information

I have been researching the Quillian Family and have discovered a connection to Dr. Clayton Causey Quillian. I found his third wifeís grave information that you provided on find-a-grave (Sarah Vivian Thomas). I have volunteered to photograph gravesites in the past but have recently moved and do not know the area well in which I currently live. I would very much like to use the photo of Sarah Vivian Thomas and her grandchildren on my ancestry Tuck Family Tree. Do you know the date and do you have the names of the granddaughters shown in the photo on find-a-grave? I also have a photo of Dr. Quillian when he was young with one of his four wives. Is this Sarah Vivian Thomas in the attached photo? Do you know who Sarah Vivian Thomas's parents were? Thank you so much for your

RE: Alvis Taylor, Memorial# 14445060
Martha's parents were Thomas and Susan (Holmes) Hodges. I last found them in 1870 Central Twp., Franklin Co, MO. Jacob Taylor, Alvis and Laura were enumerated next to them. Living with the Taylors was servant Fannie Wilson, Martha's sister.

While the 1870 census says 7 month old Laura was born in Illinois, subsequent censuses and her death certificate say Missouri. Therefore, I have assumed Martha died in Franklin Co., MO in 1870.

I've looked extensively for death/burial information on Thomas and Susan without results. Thomas' youngest son, John, married in Franklin Co., MO in 1872 and had his first child in MO in 1873. After that he went to Oklahoma where all his remaining children were born. That clan then went to Arizona by the early 1900ís.

Thomas' oldest son, William, had a child in MO in 1874, then one each in Texas, Kansas and Illinois. Fannie remarried in Franklin Co., MO in 1873 and I'm still looking for her after that. (She married a guy named William Evans Ė thereís a billion of them).

While I've looked for Thomas and Susan Hodges every place the sons went (Missouri, Oklahoma, Arizona, Kansas, Texas and Illinois), I suspect they died in Franklin Co., MO about the time the sons moved on (1873/74). The Franklin County historical society advertises books on burials. Iím going to ask them to research their files. Iíll let you know what I find. Iíd love to be able to link Alvis and Laura on Find-a-Grave.

Alvis Taylor, Memorial# 14445060
I believe Alvis Taylor's mother was Martha Hodges (with an "s"). On the 1870 Franklin Co., MO census Jacob Taylor and his children, Alvis and Laura, were enumerated next to the Thomas Hodges family. Thomas Hodges had a daughter Martha b. 1848 in Illinois who was last found in 1860 Lamar Co., TX.

Also, living with Jacob Taylor in 1870 was Fannie Wilson. I believe she was Frances Hodges, daughter of Thomas, widow of J. B. Wilson (I'm still working on that).

This Hodges family descends from Francis Cook of the original Mayflower.
