Thank you for adding the obit for Mary and I am really glad there is a connection for you with her. I see Find A Grave as a big puzzle that thousands of us work on every day. Some people are real sticklers and will not add an obit. but I always take the chance and send it to them in hopes that it is added for a way of preserving our past and that it is the information that someone is looking for.

RE: Ona Hysinger Whitaker
I just read your Bio. I also taught College Courses - Business Law and Political Science. I went to College at age 39, UK Law School at age 43. Taught for UK Community Colleges and for Lindsey Wilson college in the Ky. prison system. Loved every minute of it. I was also Correctional Administrator for Lindsey Wilson for a while, until the Govt. pulled the funding for incarcerated persons. Sounds like you made a good life for yourself also.

RE: Ona Hysinger Whitaker
unless Ona died in the last 2 days, she is still living. I thought the family would have let me know if she had passed away. However, she has been very sick for a long time. Her daughters, Judy and Marcia both live really close to her now.
I talk with her nephew Ricky often and they will be sure and let me know

RE: Chasteen & Sellers
You are most welcome. I believe in sharing everything I know about a Ancestor. So much has been lost when people pass on, their relatives toss out precious information and pictures. I believe in making everything about Geneology public. Happy Hunting. Carol

Thank you so much, Paul. (I will learn how to create memorials and add pictures for other members of the family, soon I hope) It is so nice of you to honor Mom and Dad. Sincerely, Carolyn

The parental links are made through the children's memorials.
