Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've always been interested in family history... I had the wonderful opportunity to know all 4 of my grandparents and 5 of my great-grandparents, and I always liked to hear stories about the "old days." I got started doing actual family tree research when I was 13, and I've been going strong ever since!

I am interested in the Land, Plemmons, Parks, Reece, Buice, Whitley, Stroup, and Davis families.

Feel free to use any picture that I upload (unless I specifically state in the caption that I obtained the photo from someone else.) Genealogy is all about sharing.

Also, if you want a copy of any document that I reference in a biography that I have written (census records, family documents, etc.), email me and I'll be happy to send you a copy!

Jacob Decatur Stroup death place
Hi Michael--his death occurred in Warsaw, Hancock County, IL. There is no Warsaw County. Just thought I'd clearify that. Rosie II

RE: Buice family
Hi Michael:

I could not remember if I had answered you email or not. I am the great grandson of of Lillie Belle Buice Stonecypher, who was the daughter of Robert Grahmn Buice and Georgia Ann Lee. Robert Grahmn Buice was the son of Abrahman Buice and Harriett Buice---who were second cousins. I love the Buice family and our great Dutch heritage! I know the Buice reunion was held recently near Atlanta, Georgia. I plan to go one day!

Sincerely, Your cousin,

John Burnett
Brownsville, PA

Newton Bud Lee
Hello, I'm compiling a history of Shiloh Baptist Church in Gwinnett County . I believe the Newton Bud Lee you posted a picture of was a pastor at this church. Could you please send me a copy of this photo via email? The resolution from the Find a grave website is to low for publication. You assistance greatly appreciated.

Dale family
Miles and Martha Dale would be my great great grandparents on my father's side. Paralee Parks is my grandmother's aunt. Paralee's brother, Hershel Tabor Dale , was her father. The characteristics of Miles, Paralee and my grandmother (Geneva Pearl) that are still being passed on is unbelievable! My siblings, cousins, their children and mine as well all have the high cheek bones, square jaw and deep set eyes!

Mary Southern Reece
Thanks so much for all of the information around Mary Southern Reece and her family. I've just discovered this week that she is my 3rd great grandmother. The line from her to me goes through Lafayette Reece to Arvil Reece, to my grandfather, J.B. Reece, to my mother, to me. It's been great to learn the story around James Reece. The next time I'm back in Georgia, I plan on visiting all of these newly discovered ancestors. Plus, I hope to visit James' grave in Arkansas this summer.

Thanks again,

Hi Michael,
I am the Great Granddaughter of Alfred Burton Land. You can see his picture on my family tree, Land Turner-Thornton.
Alfred B. married Sarah Paralee Postell and had my Grandmother Katie Land. Her picture is there too.

Hi Michael,

My great-grandmother was Emma Caroline Reece McClure, daughter of Mary Linda Cox Reece. Do you mind if I share the photo of Zachariah and Sarah Cox? I have been unable to find photos of the Cox family and I'm thrilled you posted this.

RE: Abraham Buice
Hi Micheal:

I am working on that now. I don't know at present, but he had to have siblings. The key is spartanburg Co., SC. I keep seeing names, but no data of proof.
