Bio and Links
Bio Photo I began my genealogy researching after my father mentioned that he wanted to know what happened to one of his aunts on his father's side. He didn't know his father since he passed away in 1935 just after he was born. He didn't know a thing about his grandparents on his father's side either, so my search began. I wanted to locate information, any information that I could gather for him.

After I received marriage and death certificates for some of the relatives, names started fitting into place. I found it interesting and intriguing. The journey has taken so far 3 years and I still have a long way to go.

I am now searching for locations of graves/headstones for many of my relatives so that I can let my father know where they are resting.

I am hoping that this site can help me find the relatives long lost. Maybe some of the family headstones that I add can help others in their search, as well.

Family names include: Thompson, East, Roope, Roop, Rupe, Hudson, Wolfe, Loftis, Lewis, Wilbourne, Wilburn, Wilborn, Nance, White, Bond, and many others.

I am having difficulty in locating graves for many relatives. I know where they passed away but where they are resting is a mystery. Maybe some day they will no longer be mysteries.

Dora Cemetery
Hello, saw your name listed and was wondering if you knew of a page online that listed names in Dora or Oakwood Cemetery. So many are in find a grave and was searching. I was going to request a photo for Dora and decided must not be visible. Found Bert Lee Rudacell in Dora Cemetery. I don't remember how they spelled just a guess. He had infants buried. I found members in Oakwood Cemetery, Rudisell. Hoping to find a source online to search. Thank you for any help. Jan
