I've been researching my families for over 30 years. Currently, I'm trying to scan & share a large collection of old family photographs and documents that have come to me from various relatives, mostly my late grandmother.
As I scan & prepare the photographs, I'm trying to post as many as possible to findagrave for others to enjoy. Especially the very old ones. Some that are labeled are not of known family connections so I'm also researching the names in an attempt to identify them.
One that I am very proud of is Jesse Elton McEwen, buried at Palms Woodland Cemetery, Miami-Dade Co FL. It took a fair amount of research to figure out that he is probably not related, but simply a neighbor of an ancestor in Carroll Co GA. I've created a memorial for him with the information I collected. Please visit his site and show him some love.
Another memorial that I'm very proud of is for my ancestor, William Francis Marion Nobles, who died as a prisoner of war at Camp Douglas IL. His final resting place is Oak Woods Cemetery, Chicago, Cook Co IL. Please visit him also.
I hope you enjoy visiting my paternal great grandfather, Hilborn Whit Hulsey. My maternal grandfather, Rev Virgil Sizemore, preached his funeral before there was a family connection. My parents were only 10 years old and I don't think they met until a few years later. If you know any of the people mentioned that aren't linked, please let me know.
Thelma Jo Patterson Jones May I please copy & paste your lifestory about my 3rd cousin, Find-a-Grave Memorial # 127550068 and the accompanying picture into my ancestry tree? Love finding life stories & not just pictures of headstones. Thanks Linda Varner
RE: William Harrison Kennedy Thanks so much ,,do you know if they had a daughter Wanita? I was told but did not have a mother down or any other children, I am related on his mother's mother's Hendricks line,,his Grandfather died in the Civil War leaving behind his Mother and Aunt and an Uncle that no one knows what happened to him. California research is hard to do and really with births it the kids name and mother's maiden name so can't do much with that. Thanks so much for your help Adeana in Texas
