|Bio and Links|
My name is Sandra Johnson Witt and I have been involved with the wonderful Find-a-Grave organization for more than six years. |
I have been interested in researching my ancestry since I was a teenager. Like many Americans, my ancestry includes a variety of nationalities. Many of my ancestors arrived in America centuries ago (Huguenots from France who immigrated to South Carolina, Puritans and Quakers from Great Britain who came to New England, and Dutch and Danish immigrants who settled in New Amsterdam in the 1600s). Others arrived relatively recently (immigrants from Germany in the 1800s and Finland in the early 20th century).
The experiences of our early immigrant ancestors paralleled the events that culminated in the founding of America and contributed to what has resulted in our unique American traditions. As a nation of immigrants, our customs and way of life have been influenced in a significant way by our immigrant ancestors.
Thank you for contacting me if you have corrections or additional information about any of the persons listed in my Find-a-Grave memorials and family links.

Hi my name is Tim Horn and I went to findagrave to look at Frances and Allen Smith's tomb from Woodlawn cemetery WPB but the photo is unreadable. Any way you can update the photo so it can be read?

Hi Sandra, found this and thought you might be interested:
The Sardis Church was founded in 1838 or 1839 (records differ). What is often called the original Sardis Methodist Church building was erected on the current site in approximately 1853 by the late Mr. J.D. Morris. He financed the building and acquired the slaves from Turnbull plantation to build the Church.
After the death of Mr. Morris, his widow, Mrs. Katherine Morris, gave the Church to the Waukeenah Charge.
Here is the link to the complete history.

|Alton Christie||Frances & Florence Pinkston|
Hi. I saw your wonderful memorial of Mary Lee Hale Pinkston Green # 11620701. You have two daughters listed for children of T.A. Pinkston and his 1st wife, Holland (Peters) Pinkston as Frances Pinkston that married an Unk Smith and Florence Pinkston. I think that I have located them on findagrave. Frances Ila Pinkston is memorial # 69786500. She married Arthur Smith 69786474 and both are buried in the Woodlawn Cemetery in West Palm Beach, Palm Beach, Florida. Florence Leona Pinkston was married to Virgil Wesley Kennedy. Her memorial is 134755829. She and Virgil are buried in the Highland Park Cemetery in Knoxville, Knox, Tennessee. Florence L. Kennedy and Frances Ila (listed as Anderson) and two Smith Children; Frederick b. abt 1915 and Susie b. abt 1918 are living together in the 1920 census in Brunswick, Glynn, Georgia. I hope that this tid bit of information is helpful. God Bless. Alton P. Christie
|Shawn Hemond||John Victor Johnson|
Hello, my name is Shawn Hemond and I am certain that we share common ancestors. My great grandfather was John Victor Johnson, the little boy in the photo graph, I believe. Sadly, I knew very little about him other than his name and a few stories here and there. I know that my great mother and he parted ways and remarried (or maybe they never were), but I do know they had two daughters; Bonnie Lucille and Martha Victorine (my grandmother), both born in Sanford, Fl. I wasn't sure at first, but by researching your information, I am positive that I am correct. My grandmother passed recently and the obit listed her parents, John Victor Johnson and Rosalie Lightsey, and siblings, which included Hubert and David. I would love to chat with you more about this as I believe that I could learn much from your research, Thank you. You can find me on Facebook if you like and we can find a better way to chat.

We just moved to Monticello about 4 years ago and have not had the opportunity to meet any of the Morris Family. My husband and his family were friends with Louis Gramling Morris. They would hunt on the Morris property from time to time. I see from your memorials that he is the son of Louis Napoleon Morris.
I volunteered to help the City of Monticello update their Roseland Cemetery Listing and started working on the Morris family recently. It's been a challenge but it sure has been fun. I'm taking this opportunity to also create memorials on Find A Grave in hopes of helping family find family. I love genealogy.

Thank you so much for the wonderful memorials you created on the Morris family. Each photo is a treasure and the family history if from the hearts of the Morris family. I'm in the process of adding more Morris memorials from Monticello, Florida and have truly enjoyed reading your Morris Memorials.
What a wonderful gift you have given the Morris families and Find-A-Grave members. A great job...thank you again!
