|Bio and Links|
|I have been into research of family since the early 1960's. It is thrilling to know the family past. The more one knows about the past the more one knows about oneself.|
My father's family names are Millen, Hardin, Uncapher and Cunningham; and on my mother's side are Kemp, Fish, Taylor and Ward. (I have Great Grand-Grandfathers of the Civil War. A Union and a Confederate)---- In the Revolutionary War my Millen (1787) was a Ranger in Western Pennsylvania, and on my mother's side, the soldier "Butler" retired to Georgia where Butler/Kemp came together.
My original Millen had a deed to land (FIRST DEED) and died 1843 leaving it to his son who died 1844 leaving no Will. When I traveled to Pennsylvania I spent 3 days in the tomes of the Court House and discovered 20 years of probate as the court chiseled the land into pieces right out of our hands. This has to be the background of my dad's possessiveness of insurance, wills, etc. His father, at age 10, left Penn in 1886 going to the new land of Nebraska where they were wiped out by diphtheria. Before the dust settled my dad ended up being the only descendant... but he married my mom in the Panhandle of Texas, she a southerner who had lots of siblings, and a soldier (1812-15) in LA.
In Gage County, Nebraska, all I had to do was drive up to the cemetery. The names of the graves were posted on the wall in a very small building area. In this manner one does not even have to make a cemetery person contact. I discovered my ancestors failed to even put up a stone (year 1892 and 1915) Amazingly, from the board, I knew where to find their location, walked to it and starred at grass. Some how this hurt. But Nebraska's ways are good; and their library had further information waiting.
In PA I didn't have time for the cemeteries so wrote them and they did the cemetery walk which is all that Find-A-Grave is asking.
However in Tarrant County one must give the SECTION NUMBER of the grave.

|Sue Armstrong||RE: James & Ruth Cottrell-Laurel Land|
Thank you, but I'm not the mother of the twin boys, who are 72 years of age. Are the sons of James B Cottrell and his first wife.
Bill Cottrell contacted me as we are distance relatives and asked me to help him establish these memorial pages for his dad, step mom, mom, step dad & an aunt. I have kept him updated all the way on my progress and the photo progress. There is a sister that is a little older that lives in Arlington, TX.
My immediate family is buried in L Land and where I will be buried also. So I feel a kinship to Laurel Land. I have discovered a lot of my distant relatives there, plus Greenwood & Mt Olivet, the past couple of years. Thank you again - Sue Armstrong
Thank you very much. I really appreciate it

Thank you so much for these grave maker photo's. This will be a special thrill to his twin sons in Washington state, as they no longer can travel to this area. - Sue Armstrong
|Pat Moss||Leroy Goodnight and Jimmie Goodnight|
Thank you so much, Linda for the photo of Leroy Goodnight's head marker! I guess the family did not get a marker for Jimmie Goodnight.
