Bio and Links
Bio Photo My parents started my family tree when I was born in 1948. When I was born I had 4 great-grandparents and 4 grandparents. I lost 1 great-grandmother and 1 grandmother when I was 6 months old. I grew up knowing the other 6. Family has always been important to me. My Dad was interested in researching his family tree, but unfortunately, such tools were not readily available to him so I'm carrying on his search. My family has deep roots in Texas, Oklahoma (including Indian Territory), Arkansas, and Arizona.

The primary families I am researching include: McKillip, Jeffrey, Scott, Lovell, Cross, Wilson and for my husband: Thrift, Westmoreland, Morris -- all his people are from NC area.

I am happy to help anyone with their searches for family members I have listed. I'm in the process of putting my Family Tree Maker on Ancestry. It's a chore as I have "updated Version 3.0" which is really, really old. I'm having to make several jump thru the hoops to accomplish my goal. In the meantime, several other family members have been helping with connections. Many thanks!

When I'm taking photos of family markers, I also take photos of those near-by markers. So, if I have entered one of your family and you'd like to take over management, just let me know and I'll be happy to comply. My goal is to help reunite family members. Helping others as I have been helped. While I recognize the guidelines for transfer, I have no desire to keep families from their loved ones. Ask, if I'm not related, I'll be happy to transfer. I only ask you you follow the edit tab and list your number.

Some may question why I am managing more than I have originated. It's because I was asked to take some friends' sites since they were going to become inactive for one reason or another . . . Not because I'm "into numbers." Since a couple of folks have "blasted me" because of the o vs m numbers, I am posting my reason.

RE: Clarence Dow Atha
Yeah. :) Do you happen to have any photos of him that aren't on Ancestry? I have been searching for a while and would love to find some. Thanks!

Thank you for the correction. Are you related to Clarence, by chance?

Old obituaries
I've been doing Genealogy for myself and others in my family now for close to 30 years. I'm not sure of which obit you'er speaking about so it would be hard to say where I found it. If I can help you find an obit let me know and I'll see what I can do. Good luck

RE: Virginia Owings LaMar
I live in Wickenburg and was just creating memorials for the graves in the cemetery. I am not related and would much rather have a family member have ownership. Happy to do the transfer. Sharon
