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.

Stella C. Scott Riley
Hi Kathryn,

I noticed that you have Stella C. Scott correctly entered on Ancestry as married to William Lafayette Wright and her correct date of death as 15 Jan 1990; but on Find-A-Grave you have her linked to Stella C. Scott Riley (Find A Grave Memorial# 125564517), from her father Lewis G. Scott. Stella Riley who died 26 Jan 1981 in NM, was married to Earl B. Riley. I know you are busy doing a lot on Find-A-Grave but I thought you might want to correct the entries. You have an entry for her as Stella Charity Wright (Find A Grave Memorial# 23147194) but she isn't linked to her parents Lewis G. and Willie Alma McLaughlin Scott (Memorial# 102509995 & Memorial# 102509985).

I just thought this might help you out as you have helped me with a lot of information and photos in the past. Thank you for that.

RE: Jeffrey
My husband was from Kansas. His Great grandfather was from Indiana. Does Indiana play into your family tree? Almost all Jeffrey's spelled that way, have been related. So this has peeked my interest!😊 Thank you, Cheryl

Re:James Lovell(1883)
James is my ggggrandfather through James(1809), James Madison, and James Walter. You have listed that his parents are John and Susanna. I have searched for parents for years. Any information you would share will be much appreciated. I have that Reuben was his youngest son. Thanks! Love and Prayers---Etta Marie.
