|Bio and Links|
I began my research in 1977. I loved hearing about my family from my Granny who was from Jefferson Co., Ms.; my grandfather was from Copiah Co., Ms. |
She would invite us over when someone came to her house in Texas from Mississippi. I remembered the surnames; FURR, SMITH, PIERCE, SAXON and CALLENDER to name a few. I listened to her stories. When I began my research, she was still alive. I went back to Texas and visited her. My cousin Carl Pierce & I recorded her life story in 1979. We went through an box of old photos. All grandmother's have boxes of old photos! She was an inspiration. I will be forever greatful I listened to her & loved her. She died in 1985 at age 98. I visit my families' cemeteries and take photos when I can. One eventful trip to Mississippi in 2001 was very productive.
My maternal grandmother was of Spanish & Cajun families from Louisiana. Among those surnames are MIGUEZ, AMY, BROUSSARD, LOIGNON & ETIE.
She lived until 1995 & also died at age 98. She wrote and told me much as well. She married TURNER & FREDERICK, so those surnames also.
Lately, I have been prompted to post the additional grave locations of my deceased husband whose family surnames are KELLY, GREEN, GILSTRAP, ADCOX, LOCKABY & SHERIFF; all being from the Pickens County area of South Carolina.
My current spouse's names are among my newest include:ROYCE,ALEXANDER,CHALFANT,CASE,DOYLE,
BLASKA & GRIFFIN. Those families were from Minnesota, Iowa, Ohio, Connecticut, New Hampshire & Tennessee & Mississippi.
Most of the memorials you see are my ancestors. Please feel free to email me with any corrections. My goal is to leave a lasting legacy for future generations by passing on accurate information. You may copy any photos I contributed here to share with your family. If related to me; contact me. I have a large database with all my relatives in it. Over 30,000+.
My heartfelt appreciation to those who have created memorials or taken pictures of my family members.

|Jim Easom||George Kendall|
Leslie, I think this is the wrong George Kendall #81468766. I can't find this one. I think according to census records that this is not the George married to Carrie. Unless you have something I don't know about. The correct George Kendall is #75716759. Thank-you.

I saw your note on his memorial, was Marcus'
wife Nellie the daughter of Ellen Virginia Sorrels and Edgar Davis Boren? Nellie Boren was a distant relative of mine and I have been working on my family tree. I am from the Goza family line.

Just to let you know, find-a-grave is now allowing input/edits of the memorials in and around Claiborne Parish, Louisian, that were originally created by "Margaret" who sadly passed away in September of 2011. You just have to go through the edit tab and follow the instructions that come up.

Hi Leslie ~ Thank you so much for the handsome portrait that you added to the memorial for Noah E. Cloud. I was pleased to link Noah to his parents as you requested.
With appreciation for your kindness,
Susan J. Monaghan
Historian for USMC Squadron VMD-154
Thank you for the prayers and wishes for recovery. I keep and treasure them all. When I feel down, I go through my folders and re-read them for a spiritual rush.
My email is: email@example.com and I thought it always came through when I sent edits, so I may go into my account and see what could be wrong.
I did check your bio and didn't see 'Strohmeyer' listed and that is why I requested the transfer. I didn't mean to step on anyone's toes, but its possible I missed it somewhere along the line. Thanks for your response and your uplifting message.

I linked Evert to his parents Lot Smith and Melissa East Smith. They were my third great grandparents. I would like to find their graves to photograph, but the directions to the cemetery seemed like they had been written quite a while ago.

|Deb||RE: Bewer Cemeteries In Nacogdoches|
Cemetery has now been merged.
As you can see from the list of names, the duplicates are now much easier to spot. Whoever has a duplicated entry needs to delete it, or the names will be merged anyway, once they are turned into Administration ... that is painstaking since it has to be done one at a time. And they will only do it when THEY get ready to do so.
