|Bio and Links|
Originaly from Greenville, Hunt County, Texas, I was somewhat nomadic for a while. Growing up I lived in the Philippines, Italy, Washington State, Syracuse, N.Y., and eventually back to Texas, where I lived in Paris for a while, then Greenville, moved to Oakland, California for a short time, then back to Paris. I enlisted in the Army and spent time at Ft. Knox, KY, and in South Korea. After the Army I spent another short period of time in the Bay Area, then I moved to Commerce, Texas. I was there for four years and had a great time and made a lot of life long friends. I eventually moved on and have found a fairly firm rooting in Portland, Oregon and have been here since 1995, with the exception of a three month stay in Japan in 1999. I am a proud member of the Sons of Confederate Veterans (please checkout on this site, John Tyler Jacobs, my great, great grandfather) and am actively involved in the research and documentation of Confederate veterans that moved West after the war and lived out their days in the Pacific Northwest. (please checkout the page on this site for Col. Isaac W. Smith, our Camp namesake) It has been the most exciting and rewarding experience. Before the Jacobs moved to Texas, they were in Missouri (where my GGGrandfather was in the Confederate service), and before Missouri, they were from Nelson County/ Amherst County, Virginia. I have been to most of the cemeteries in and around Portland, so if you have any questions or need a photo, etc, I can help. Confederate veteran or not! :)|

I was reading your bio and saw that you hailed from Greenville. It's always so neat to see someone that is from your area. I lived in Greenville for 5 months, and now am in Lone Oak (for the last 8.5 years).
One of the (many) great things about Find A Grave is that you can do it anywhere you go.

Thanks for the photos of my grandfather. I noticed that you are new to the Find a Grave site.
In future you might want to take close ups of just the headstone as a lot of us use the dates and info to verify our research.
This one didn't matter because it was such a close relative.
Thanks again, and welcome to the Find a Grave family.
