Bio and Links
Bio Photo Long a history buff, one of my grandmothers gave me her grandfather's letters, written during the Civil War while serving in the Confederate Army and as a prisoner of war. I've primarily concentrated on updating and listing direct ancestors, though I've added information, listings and links to some of their siblings as well. I have a copy of the late Jean Dryden Christian's detailed Dryden Genealogy 'Willey and Sarah,' which she distributed to extended family in 1988.

I also add listings and gravestone photos in cemeteries I visit. If you are a descendant of one of these people within findagrave guidelines (direct descendant, no more than three generations), I'll be happy to transfer administrator duties to you. Please do not create a second listing for the individual then ask me to delete my listing, such requests will be ignored.

Please understand that I can't fulfill photo requests in cemeteries with tens of thousands of graves without being given a specific location for the individuals.

If you have additional information, corrections, or just want to get in touch with me, email me rather than publicly posting your query. That way I'll see it faster.

Some of the surnames I'm searching include: Dryden (Kansas, Missouri, Indiana, Virginia, Scotland), Wilson (Florida, Georgia), Harmon (Kansas), Dyer (Kansas, West Virginia and Virginia), Spear (Georgia), Cook and Bartlett.

Happy hunting!

Correction of Parents
Concerning: Evergreen East Cemetery, El Paso TX, Wilburn O. Harmon. You have parents listed as Robert Lee Harmon and Sallie Delena Dyer Harmon. I have Wilburn O. Harmon's death certificate stating his parents were William (actual name is Wilburn) F. Harmon and Elisabeth Setliff. Thank you for your attention. I would be glad to provide a copy of the death certificate.

RE: Rev. Benjamin Newton Brooks
Thanks Ken, I would appreciate that. My great grandfather was a Baptist Minister. If he is not in Primitive Baptist Cemetery, he is probably buried in a Baptist Cemetery there.

RE: Seaborn Ware Photo
Thank you very much, Ken. This is a branch of my Ware line that left Lincoln County, NC and settled in Catoosa County, GA in the late 1820s.

RE: Helen Harmon
My pleasure. Personally I would love to have something given to me from my ancestors if someone came across it.

Helen Harmon
After attending an auction in Oklahoma. Wanting to add to my stamp collection. I found a letter from Roy to Miss Helen dated 1922 (before marriage) and 8th grade report card of her son Jimmie. I would like to pass these to any relative that would appreciate the items. Please contact me anytime.
