Bio and Links
Bio Photo Genealogist for 50 years. Enjoyed every minute and have detailed records, extensive notes, links and four books covering 50,000 relatives. Currently being harassed by an overzealous but anonymous Find a Grave monitor. Regardless of that minor annoyance, I'll accommodate any request. Pet peeve is concocted cemeteries, non-specific interment sites and attempts to use Find a Grave as genealogical software.

Woddy Cannon
I have a friend named, Elaine Bay who would like to talk to you about Woddy Cannon. She is the mod of the Official Grayson County Historical website. She saw Woddy's Find-a-Grave. I told her that I talked to you a few years back about trying to find Woddy's sister's grave at Cannon Cemetery that is unmarked. I think it was Elizabeth Cannon Baker?

Buster Family
Hi Tom,
I'm contacting you to give you some information on some pictures on John Morgan Buster. The picture with John Morgan and Mary Francis Warren Buster, the woman in that picture is Dorie Warren Elkins, Marys sister.
The family picture of John, Mary and children..well Mamie Myrtle was not in that picture. That is Rose Minerva Buster Jones (my grandmother).
I have seen these pictures all my life and have heard my Grandma and her sister Retha (Campbell) talk of these pictures. Your Grandmother was my great aunt. But I never saw her or Mamie (died before my time). But heard of them both all my life. The rest of them I knew.
I have been going over family history with my dad before time is lost. As there are only 2 sons of Roses still living and both in their 80s. I thank you for your time.

Mary Marchbanks Scoggins
Hi Tom,
Been doing research on Tn.Scoggins who migrated
to Texas. Ran across your Mary Marchbanks Scoggins
memorial. Was her family line from Bradley Co Tn?
Tom, I just uploaded her Tx. death certificate
onto her memorial.
I tried to see the old, and new Tx.d.c. that you
have a link for. Old one shows "ooops", and the
new one links up to FamilySearch site.
Tom, One can download any death certificate found
on the FamilySearch site.
I have been instructed one should not download
a link to FamilySearch but one should go ahead
and download the death certificate itself for use.
(many people are not a signed up member of
FamilySearch site.)
I was not sure you knew you can download the
death certificate and upload it instead of posting
a link to FamilySearch site.

Grace Tatum
I received your update request on Grace. I wish I could help, but I cannot remove James Monroe Tatum as her husband. You are correct that he isn't her husband, but the link was made from his page and I have had no luck getting it removed when requesting an edit of that memorial.

Put out a photo request on Rev William and I will move the photo over there also.
Real sorry I couldn't get to your photo request sooner. You've heard of needle in a haystack-that's what it's like trying to find one name among thousands. A challenge.
Glad to have been of service even a little late.
