|Bio and Links|
For almost twenty-five years I have been involved in genealogy. When my mother died, she left some notes about a few ancestors she had uncovered and hoped I would continue her research. That was the hook-in-the-jaw that changed my life. I only regret that I have missed out on so many years that I could have used. Alas, all those family stories that went in one ear and out the other, and all those family members who took so much information to the grave with them. |
I am, however, thankful for the tools that are now available and for FindAGrave, a platform that I have spent many hours gaining from and contributing to.
If I have created a memorial for your family member, and YOU CAN ADD MORE INFORMATION, I will be glad to transfer it to you. However, many have received a transfer & have never added anything. This isn't fair to kin who may come along later who can do so.
An exception to the above are my Bell, Dodson, & Love ancestors and kin, most of whom have numerous descendants. Much of the information contained in their memorials is the result of many years of tedious research, and as new information comes to light, I would like to be able to make those changes. For these memorials please follow FindAGrave guidelines for transfers.
Please use the Suggest a Correction feature to make any type of request.

|LampLighter62||RE: Death event of David and|
Virginia, thank you! I was hoping you would say that! I have been searching every source I can find in the Newspaper category in Arkansas. Surely, a death, maybe more, from a tornado would be news-worthy, but I have gotten nowhere. I would appreciate any input you can share.
My Mother lived with me for the last 18 months of her ninety-three years. I sat with her with a pad and pen and asked her pointedly about family members and their events. Her mind was clear, and she recalled what I had heard many times growing up, and she didn't falter in her memories of her family. She told me other tragic facts about some of them which I would not choose to make public. And, some things I have found out through Ancestry and affiliates I don't believe even she knew. I am thoroughly enjoying the research. She has given me another challenge -- she believed a Grandmother was a full-blood Cherokee Indian Maiden who married a "white" Grandfather. She described her in detail and remembered her name, but I can find absolutely no references to even suggest her existence.
(By the way -- my Maiden Name was Brown)
|Steve Trudgeon||RE: Blevins Links|
Glad we could help each other.
FYI, I'd be happy to help with your research more if I can. My line to the Blevins came from Albert's mother; Lula "Tinsley" Blevins 1888-1949, who married John Carlton Blevins 1878-1920.
I apologize, I left out the fifth Lizzy and James Alderson child, "Rosetta." Also Anna's married name was "Davis" and Minnie's was "Clark." LampLighter62.
|LampLighter62||Death event of David and "Lizzie" Gillian|
My Mother was Selma Alderson. She was the daughter of Jordanna (Kelly) and her second husband, Edgar Alderson. Jordanna's first husband was Charles L. Bacchus, Jr. His sister was Elizabeth "Lizzie" Bacchus. My Mother's memory remained very clear over the years. She never waivered in recalling family member names and events. Her recollection was that Lizzie married David Gillian. He was killed in a tornado that collapsed the house upon him and he died of suffocation. She never included Lizzie as being present or harmed in this event. On the contrary, Mama continued that Lizzie later married her father, Edgar's, brother, James H. Alderson. There were four children of this marriage, Annie, Minnie, Ida and Homer. This family-based knowledge is supported by Ancestry.com citations (1) Marriage: Lizzie "Gilliland(sp)" to J. H. Alderson, 1 May, 1892, Hagarville, Johnson, Arkansas, source: "Arkansas, County Marriages Index, 1837 - 1957." (2) U.S. Federal Census for years: 1900 (which shows James and Lizzie with three of the children living seven houses from Edgar and Jordanna and family. There is also the family of "Robert Gilliland" on the following page.); 1910 -- 1950 show Lizzie as a Widow and later living with daughter, Annie Clark. Also, (3)"web: Arkansas, Find A Grave Index" shows the Annie's Chapel, Hagarville, grave site for Elizabeth "Lizzie" Alderson with the date of death as 1951. These citations are consistent with first-hand family knowledge including married names of the children. For me, the question is; who is buried next to Dave?
I hope this comment can help clarify any unresolved issues for those researching Lizzie.
Please feel free to visit my "Brown: Alderson, Kelly Family Tree" at Ancestry.com or contact me as "LampLighter62."

COULD YOU PLEASE TRANSFER HIS PROFILE TO ME THANKS
Virginia, thank you for transferring the memorial to me.
|Harriet W. Berry||RE: Mollie James Lenning|
Thanks, Virginia. I hope to remember that the next time I feel stricken with the need to ask the question(s)! I appreciate your patience. --H
|Harriet W. Berry||Mollie James Lenning|
Duh. Death cert says she was buried at Knight Cemetery, with her parents. Makes sense to me. And we both know that means a mighty slim chance of finding a marker. Do you want to do the honors, or shall I? --H
|Harriet W. Berry||Rufus James, 106770407|
Hi, Virginia. Am still rooting around in little Wilson County cemeteries near the county line. I have probably asked you this, but forgotten the answer: Would you like for me to transfer this memorial to you? Not a problem, either way.
Also, FYI, I'm just now adding a memorial for an Enoch and Ellen James son-in-law, T. J. Lenning, #110881551. No stone recorded for his wife, Mollie James, so I was looking around to see where her parents were. If you have any ideas on Mollie (or anything else for that matter), please let me know. Good to "see" you again! --Harriet
|Rob Cook||RE: Kitty F Hart Culp|
Ok, just figured it out. C S and S J had a daughter born in 1881 and died. I am referring to C S sister, Kitty F Hart, b. 1864, who married John T Culp and had 4 surviving children.
