Bio and Links
Bio Photo 20 Jul 2013 - Thanks to the Contributors who work hard to link families together or add other information to the memorials and are not here to just add to their numbers (adding duplicates upon duplicates of memorials and not having the courtesy to remove them once they're detected). I have made a virtual cemetery to note those duplicates which I have come across (and many times let the duplicate contributor know of the error).


09 Nov 2011 - Awesome job the Houston County (Texas) Historical Commission is doing! I appreciate their labor of love!


26 May 2011 - There are so many wonderful people on this site! Thanks to everyone who takes the time to put someone else first.


Oct 2009 - I've been interested in genealogy since I was a preteen because my maternal grandfather's mother died giving birth to him and his twin brother (stillborn) in 1924 and he was raised by his maternal grandparents (his grandma was only 32 years old and already had 8 children and had another 7 children after taking Grandpa in). Grandpa Sonny Staggs was my rock throughout his life - he died in July 2008. He taught me many lessons in life including that nothing in this world is given to you, if you're not willing to work hard for it!

Fast forward a few years I meet my husband (by selecting him out of a yearbook from another high school and a mutual friend introduces us) and come to find out we're related by marriage, so we share many kin folks.

I'm not here to play the numbers game. What is more important to me is that what I have is correct. I will try to help others without hurting anyone.

Please let me know if you have any additions or corrections to the memorials I have added. Also I'll be more than happy to link to other family members or transfer a memorial.

Take Care and God Bless!

RE: Colette Garrity
I hope that you understand that it was not my intention that you remove your entry. I was a student of hers in high school. Yours is a very nice tribute to a very nice woman. I offered the information so that you could enhance your entry. Since most of her former students do not know her as FEDORA, your entry is great. Most of us would likely search find a grave using her chosen name. Actually, I happened upon the Sisters of Providence cemetery and her entry, quite by accident.

Thanks for the nice tribute to her!
