Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm an avid "amateur" genealogist, living in the Great Northwest. I enjoy the history that is written on tombstones and the beautiful inscriptions left by families. I would like to help anyone that I can with researching tombstones and cemeteries. To preserve family histories is so rewarding. My family is from all over this country and I know how important it is to me to "find" them.

I've recently completed 30 years of research for my mother and presented her with her Family Tree this year in 2013. What a rewarding experience seeing the beautiful smile upon her face! I enjoy bringing loved ones, family & friends together.

RE: Thomas & Mary Ann Park
I've only made contact with a couple of other family members in my 35+ years of working on genealogy. Exciting to hear that your husband is part of this family too. If you use I have my tree there, it's called "Fadness, Jensen, Okins, Shortt Tree". It has been a very fun line to research. I just retired two months ago, so I'm looking forward to having more time to work on it. Juelette Fadness

Thomas & Mary Ann Park
Thanks for the information on Thomas & Mary Ann Park. I have updated their memorials. You have set up memorials for two small boys, Elmot and William Parke, who are also buried at Freidlein cemetery. They are grandsons of Thomas & Mary Ann. I will send you a request to link them to their parents, Thomas Leslie Combs Parke and Harriet Adeline Sims Parke. Regards, Juelette Fadness

William L. Page
Hello! I am trying to confirm the information regarding William L. Page who died in 1883 according to the following link and shows he is buried at Mount Holly Cemetery, Smithville, DeKalb County, Tennessee.

I have contradicting information that indicates he moved to Texas and and then to Oregon, changed his name to Charles Henry Allen, and died in Oregon in 1955.

Since there is no tombstone showing on the Find-a-Grave memorial 98341337 can you confirm that this information is correct?

Thank you for your help.

I sent an e-mail but received no response so I am trying the public message.

Nancy Ann Patton d/o Samuel Donnell Patton
Hello Stone,

I notice that Samuel Donnell Patton is missing a daughter in the list of his children. She was from his second marriage.

Her name was Nancy Ann Patton. She married Monroe Wilson ALEXANDER, s/o Samuel Houston ALEXANDER and Manerva Catherine ABBETTS/ABBOTTS/ABBOTT ALEXANDER. Nancy and Monroe Wilson, their son Nelson Gray Alexander, Samuel Houston & Manerva Catherine Alexander are all buried in the I.O.O.F. Cemetery in Norman, Cleveland County, Oklahoma. (You have documentation for Samuel Houston and Manerva Catherine's wedding on her findagrave listing. The writing on the marriage certificate is not legible, which explains the various spellings of her last name, as well as the misspellings of her first name and his middle name on records everywhere.) I recently learned, (on PBS Genealogy Roadshow, that Samuel Houston Alexander was born when Sam Houston was governor of Tennessee. That had been a puzzle to me!)

Anyway, I wanted to let you know about Nancy Ann being Samuel Donnell's daughter and her connection to the Alexanders.

I'm the ggggranddaughter of Samuel Donnell and Samuel Houston through their children John Calvin Patton and Ella Belle Alexander Patton.

RE: Ella I Hysell (Keepers) 15171577
Sorry, I don't have any further info. I do know that in the 70s I knew Leslie keepers, son of Vern and he told me we were related through the Powers that his grandfather was married to Ella, but later divorced after Vern was born. My other family members told me that Ella was married to Vern, but I later found out that Vern was her son, not husband.I wish I knew more myself.This is the first I have heard of a Isabel Powers. I do know that Ella's middle name is Isobel though. May be a conflict of names there, I don't know.

My Aunt walked the cemetery back in 1983. At the time the grave was unmarked. I had wanted to rewalk the cemetery this summer. Just have not had the chance yet. You might try to contact the cemetery office. If they have more information, I would be happy to add it to the memorial.

RE: Starnes Graveyard
Yes, two Starnes cemeteries in the right area for your folks. One was bulldozed, one was removed to Mt Holly with the dam, neither had any mention of your person, both had a lot of unreadable fieldstones. I'll ask John if he'll check his book for you.

Nothing on your Hayes headstone hostages yet, I assume?
