|Bio and Links|
I am retired from Federal Civil Service, where I worked for the Department of Defense for over twenty-seven years. Genealogy has been my number one hobby for thirty-four years and our daughters never missed an opportunity to comment that their mother was the only person they knew who took a vacation and came home with nothing but pictures of tombstones. |
Lineage societies keep me busy as I am a member of Daughters of the American Revolution, Colonial Dames of the 17th Century, United States Daughters of 1812 and Daughters of the Union Veterans of the Civil War. In Colonial Dames of the 17th Century I prove my descent from the royal lines of Europe through my ancestor John Throckmorton. I have a total of forty coats of arms approved, including eight barons who forced King John to sign the Magna Charta. In 2009 my membership into the National Society Magna Charta Dames and The Plantagenet Society was approved. In 2010 I have added The National Huguenot Society,First Families of New Hampshire and Descendants of Colonial Clergymen, to my approved lineage societies. Approved in August 2011 was my application as a Decendant of the Most Noble Order of Knights of the Garter. In August 2013 my membership was approved for Order of Washington, The Sovereign Colonial Society Americans of Royal Descent and Colonial Order of the Crown. I'm currently working on my application to a new lineage society: National Society of Descendants of Lady Godiva.
My genealogical research includes all collateral lines. Some of my direct lines include BARKER,BEVER,BLAIR, CHANDLER,COMPTON,DUFFORD, DOUGLASS,DUNN, DRAKE, HATT,HOLLINGSWORTH, ISAACKS, KINDER, LIFE, MARKER, MCELVAIN, MCKINSEY, MCMAHAN, NINE, SARBER,SCOTT, STEVENS, SIMMONS, SMITH, STOUT, and my husband's lineage including SHAWN, SHOUN, SHOWN, LOCKABY, HEAD, MOORE, BAKER, SLEMP, GREATHOUSE, AND JOHNSON.
This site is wonderful for bringing people together and giving us an opportunity to share our tombstone pictures and pictures of the cemeteries. IF YOU USE MY PICTURES AND/OR MY GENEALOGICAL INFORMATION PLEASE GIVE ME CREDIT FOR MY WORK; OTHERWISE YOU DO NOT HAVE MY PERMISSION TO POST IT TO ANY OTHER SITE.

Hi Darlene, I'm doing genealogical research about my ancestors in IN and I was thrilled to find the photo of William and Samantha Sarber that you posted. Samantha was the sister of my great-great grandfather, a Shields. I'm trying to find anyone who might have information about the Shields family in Indiana, particularly Samantha's father Robert R. Shields. Are you still in contact with any of her descendants who might be willing to share genealogical information? I would be very grateful for you help. Best wishes - SL

|Eileen M.||RE: Henry Douglas|
Darlene I wish I could tell you where it was, but I photographed the entire Cemetery and took over 1000 pictures. I happened to read what you had written on his memorial and sent the message that he really was there. Glad I made your day.
|Eileen M.||Henry Douglas|
I was photographing in Ebenezer Cemetery and found Henry's headstone. It is now on his memorial.

If you will look on your bio page and click on the word "edits" --up at the top-- you will see that I have responded to you little problem. It may, of course, come as an email. I am happy with this new system. However, we do learn everyday, I think. I had written, quite awhile back, a memorial for baby Velma Mae Simmons. And, the other day I added her family connection. In other words I added her PARENTS to the appropriate place. NOBODY can add siblings! Not you. Not me. This is done by findagrave!!! However, to get the siblings all as full siblings, you have to do your part which is really so simplistic. Simply go to EACH SIBLING for whom you have made a memorial. THEN---Add each child's PARENTS IN THE CORRECT PLACE! If you still do not understand, then, please know that I will be very happy to explain it again in simpler terms if you think I can be of help. Good luck in your endeavors on findagrave~
|Will Motsinger||RE: Margaret Ann Smith Adair|
Dsrlene, thanks for all the additional information & especially the photo of Harvey & Margaret. It's great to be able to put a face on a name..
|Jan Farrenburg||RE: Enoch Riley McMann|
Glad I was able to help with the addition of Enoch's parents.
|Eileen M.||RE: MINERVA JANE MCMAHAN GARRISON|
I will be happy to add the dates. Could you please give me the memorial number?
|DebStarrett||RE: JESSIE LUCILLE CLARK HEATON|
Thank you for the info on Aunt Jessie. As you had said her sister lives in West Palm Beach, Aunt Mary Ellen is still with us. She has Alheimer, sometimes she has her good days.
I am glad you provided the info on Jessie, I knew she passed away but never knew where she lived as I had not seen her since I was a little girl. My grandmother Ethyl Starrett was one of their sisters.
|Jerry D||RE: Veda Chandler|
Darlene, I changed it. Thanks for the correction! I always appreciate the information sent. Have a great day!
