Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started genealogy in 1992 with my mother as a young boy researching her side of the family first. Then in 1998, I picked it back up again on my own researching not just my mother's line, but also my father's. Between 1998 and 2010, I would look at the information on and off. Starting the early part of 2010, after watching the hit NBC show "Who Do You Think You Are," I picked it up again and haven't stopped. What a difference a decade makes in technology, thank goodness for the Internet!

I came across FindAGrave while researching some ancestors and have fallen in love with it. It's a great way to honor your loved ones, and also help those who are not able to take a picture of the grave-site. This is also convenient as I visit several cemeteries each year.

Please feel free to drop me a message regarding the following surnames. I'm also looking for photo's of the people listed in my Virtual Cemeteries. Your help in advance is greatly appreciated!!

- McFarland (Ohio, Ireland)
- Ussery (Missouri, Tennessee, North Carolina)
- Erwin (Missouri, Pennsylvania, Ireland)
- Franklin (Missouri)
- Peavy (Georgia, Texas, Arkansas, Alabama)

Robards / Burch families
I am researching these families for a gentleman looking to join the Spirit of 76 chapter of SAR which I am genealogist.
We would appreciate any help finding documents on these families.
He is descended from George Lewis Robards.

Joseph Jefferson Cary
You have Kemp Cary and Rebecca Butler Cary named as parents of Joseph Jefferson Cary. None of my sources list them as having a son Joseph. However, they did have a son named Thomas Jefferson Cary with the approximate dates that you have listed for Joseph and who was known to have lived in Cass County. Maybe a little mix-up here? I am descended from Armenius Cary.

I see that you are related to "Jacqueline Marie "Jackie" (Hunter) Bothwell." I know Jackie has two children, Sara and Vernon. And Sara has three children, Joseph, Brandi and Sabrina.

Giles Bowers Sr. Mem #69556744
There is another memorial for this person. The mem # is 54790949.

The other one has a place of burial and the only difference is the year of birth 1706 vs 1715 and you have children, the other does not.

You might want to look into it. If it is the same person, at least you will know the burial site.
