Bio and Links
Bio Photo ~*~~*~~*~~*~~*~~*~~*~~*~

~*~I don't blame some people for disabling their messages, they do some very RUDE things! They're in it for the numbers and nothing else.

~*~People should never change the traditional names of cemeteries! Old records, documents, newspaper articles, obituaries, older people in the community, records at courthouses and even Google maps have MANY variations to names of cemeteries.
~It makes it hard to find the proper cemetery to add memorials, creates duplicate cemeteries, etc. ~Ask SEVERAL people or find SEVERAL sources before changing the name, don't take one person's word for it.
~Don't rename a cemetery using the oldest person's surname in a cemetery, it may have been their in-laws or others with a different surname that donated the land for the cemetery that deserves to be recognized.
~And again, a family cemetery may have changed to a community cemetery, thus creating a new name and forgetting the original owners.

~*~I also find it very disturbing that people have new headstones made (and the information isn't valid, sometimes) and sometimes TAKE/STEAL the old original headstones.


~*~Info, obits, and photos welcome on any of my memorials! Just let me know so I can add info to my family tree if need be. And anyone is welcome to any of my photos!

~*~I'll transfer any memorial as long as they are not my relatives, unless you are closer related than me. And I don't bother with the 4 generation thing...And by the way for you sticklers out there----4th generation is up to Great-Great Grandparents, NOT Great Grandparents. That would be including yourself!!!

1. Parents
2. Grandparents
3. Great grandparents
4. Great-Great grandparents

Brother and sisters should not be included as 1st generation either. If you have no siblings it limits the limit!!


Were there no God, we would be in this glorious world with grateful hearts, and no one to thank.
~Christina Rossetti

All this belongs to the past now. The old homestead has fallen into other hands, the old people sleep in their quiet graves, and their descendants are scattered. The brave old days are like a dream of the night, scarcely to be remembered in the realities of to-day.
~Reuben Davis, Recollections of Mississippi and Mississippians

My mother's people, the people who captured my imagination when I was growing up, were of the Deep South - emotional, changeable, touched with charisma and given to histrionic flourishes. They were courageous under tension and unexpectedly tough beneath their wild eccentricities, for they had an unusually close working agreement with God. They also had an unusually high quota of bulls**t. ~Willie Morris

I like it. If it's all right with you, I'm going to add it to my page with your gen2003 & references.

RE: J M Fulton
Yes that would be great. or you can send it to me at He was not a relative of mine but he was like a brother to J.W. Ellis & his wife Lovey and looked over JWs kids after he died & lived on their land, Richland Hill. So he's still a very important part of our family. I wonder if Fulton & Ellis were in the Confederate army together--I wouldn't be surprised. Maybe this info you have will help me with JW's soldier life. Thanks, Robbie

RE: Calvin Robert
Thank you sooooo much. Thank you for working to get him famous. I appreciate you very much. My member page doesn't show a star in my list so I didn't know. Thanks again.

Thomas Dudley Brown
Makes sense. I have made a note in his bio and linked him to Elizabeth Young Brown. Since FindaGrave "owns" John Brown's memorial, it has to make the link to his father.
