I believe we need to share our family history and pictures. It leaves a legacy for future generations. No ONE PERSON should keep all the family photos and information. SHARE SHARE SHARE!!|
Findagrave is great forum for doing so.
I have added several hundred findagrave sites from census done by others and shared with me.
If you find errors please let me know and I will make every attempt to verify the information and correct it or transfer to you for correction.
I will almost always transfer a site unless I am more closely related to the subject than the requestor (findagrave guidelines say 4 generations) or unless it is part of a special project. ( I enter information for others and would ask them before transferring )
I am a resident of Colorado but I have many relatives in Mississippi, Yazoo, Neshoba, Warren, Hinds, Jones & Madison Counties.
I was born in Mississippi. I try to keep up with my elderly relatives. I try to copy available obituaries and will record grave information as it becomes available. I consider Findagrave a shortcut to creating family History.

|Cathie Bailey||Lemly Cook Riddle|
Hi Marilyn! I don't know this family. I did, however, search ancestry.com to see what I could find. There are a number of people that have trees with her married to William Emmette Riddle as well as Robbins Cortez Riddle. Thanks for helping to keep the records as accurate as we can humanly manage. Be blessed! =0)
|Beverly Clark||RE: 75966387 Clark|
Yes, please transfer to me. Thanks!
|Cille McHenry Litchfield||RE: Aikman|
I have seen that. I am making some good progress using notes from my Aunt's files (who was more interested in her Dad's side than her Mom's) that included, among other things research of Melton Price Meek, MD, the great grandson of Lewis Henry/Mary Ann Aikman Jones through his grandfather William Price Jones (brother of Mary Eunice, my great grandmother).
I want this branch to have as much documented as possible before it is all lost. I appreciate your help.
|suzanne sears||RE: Smith Sears Connection|
The DNA report is available to be seen at Family Tree DNA: Sears project. There you can see a living male "Smith" whose DNA is identical to a "Sears". This Smith traces his lineage back to Benjamin Franklin Smith. The Sears he matches seems to track back to at least Kentucky. Kentucky was the destination most likely to be chosen for those farming in NC who had exhausted their land tobacco farming. NC was home to a strong pool of Sears men. Identical DNA means these two testers absolutely shared a common ancestor at some point.
|Cille McHenry Litchfield||RE: Albert Jones|
Thank you - this is great. I am hoping making these connections will help lead me to some additional info on my great grandmother Mary Eunice Jones and her husband Joseph Henry Benton (5 Jun 1867 - after 1916).
|suzanne sears||Smith/Sears connection|
It may interest you to know that this gentlemans decendents alive today carry the idential DNA of the SEARS family of Kentucky. It is entirely possible "Smith" is not his original surname but an assumed one. As the origins of the SEARS clan in Kentucky is unknown, however seems to generate many links back to North Carolina, and Sears did live in North Carolina, your mystery may be solved as to who he really way.
|Shelly Girl||Robert Dilley Photo|
Hello, I noticed you posted a photo on Pvt. Dilley's memorial #62469786. Is that part of a larger picture of soldiers from the 12th? If it is, would love to have a copy of it. I'm doing some research on the 12th, putting together a complete roster. If you can help, please let me know. My email is: firstname.lastname@example.org. thank you.

I've transferred her to you. I found her through a Tabernacle Cemetery Listings book found on archive.org book section if it helps :)
