|Bio and Links|
My white ancestors have Southern Roots traced to AR from GA, AL, NC, VA with names such as Gorham, Williamson, York, Murphy & McDade. We go back to the 1600s arriving in the colonies from England or Scotland. My northern Loomis line is equally long traced back to Indiana, Ohio, NY and CT also arriving before the American Revolution. I have Boyds in AR who arrived there from TX via Missouri, and Foxes back to England. Some fought for the Confederacy, others for the Union, they were on both sides of the Revolutionary War and some participated in the Indian Wars. Some had slaves, others did not. I'm interested in their history and creating a story to add to these names, dates, or tombstones. I want to provide this to my grandchildren. I also search for their African-American heritage and endeavor to trace their roots and slave history as far back as possible. Before finding FindAGrave, I have traveled around the world and even while at home always had an interest photographing tombstones. Now with great respect I have added memorials or photos to tell the stories of others. I appreciate those who have contributed and thru many links here I've solved puzzles or found missing ancestors. We are fortunate for this great site and the spirit of cooperation in which it encourages us all to share.|

|Kit and Morgan Benson||Joe O. Eggert memorial|
I came along about 3 months after you posted your memorial to Joe, and did some research on him, to include writing for his military personnel records. From that information, I wrote a short biography for him on the memorial site I posted at # 56303588. Please write me at email: email@example.com, so we can discuss Joe and other things.

You are very welcome. I thought that you may not have been aware that his wife was there also. Barb

You're very welcom for the photos, Bettye. Glad I could contribute to your searches. Mattie's gravesite also has one of the most beautifull views in the cemetery, being at a high, northern location. Hope someday you get a chance to visit.

|Carol STEVENS||Hi Bettye|
Are you a Loomis, now ? I'm a Loomis and I wonder how you are related to Joseph & Mary Loomis ? (I can help you, if you'd like.

|Iris Meshell||RE: William Porter Photo|
Hey, Bettye.......I'm glad to be able to make this "verification" for you with just a photo! Findagrave is a great tool for getting in touch with your DNA. The old stories that have been handed down thru the generations seem to be like glue on all the relatives. Some of us are actually surprised when the tales and dates prove to be true!
|Mr & Mrs||RE: Stephens Headstones|
Glad they were helpful.
