The only relatives I have there are the Belcher's. Since I was alrady there I decided to take pictures of those who needed photos and also found many graves that were not posted. I enjoy helping others who might be seeking their ancestors.

RE: gilland cemetery
it is on private land but easy to access. Cattle gate unlocked but secured right by it. No animals in the pasture as of two weeks ago. I doubt anyone would mind though. Some people I know who do the grave dowsing thing said there must have been a church there long ago because they were getting "readings" of a few hundred people buried around there even out under the road to the next persons yard. Not sure of your feelings on dowsing but these three people at considered masters or as they have been trained and been doing it write some time. Just thought I would share that. Maria

RE: harris
Hi Tommy,

I was so glad you dropped me another line. I usually delete all but 1 or 2 of e-mails that I have when talking back and forth on the profile pages....I keep a couple so that I will be able to get back in contact with the contributer later on if I find something else or want to contact them to ask them a question.

I accidently deleted all the messages that I received from you and was sitting here trying to find a way to locate you again.

I was so happy when your last message came in...I meant to tell you in my last message that I will be getting back to your wife's family line in the short future and will continue to update where I left off last time. If I find something new ...I will leave you a note on your profile page. to see if you already have it or not...and, I may run into a question that only you can answer about your line...and hope it will be alright if I contact you about it at that time.

I'm updating all my family books to put on disk for Christmas Presents for my family. These will replace the ones I gave them a couple of years back. Right now, I'm more less jumping from one family surname to another, but will be returning back to my Harris line hopefully next month.

It is so wonderful to make contact with new cousins and be able to share family information wih each other.

Until Later........God Bless,

RE: w w harris
Hi Tommy,

Are you speaking of William M. "W.W." Harris (1836-1922)and wife, Sarah Jane "Sary" Ellis Harris (Apr 09, 1841-May 17, 1907)?

If so, which one of their children is your wife's ancestor?

I have most of his history on his memorial and his wife's and his children's memorials, but will be glad to answer any questions you may have if possible.

Until Later....God Bless,
Judith Nan Lewis
