Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been researching my family & my husbands (John William English) family for over 30 years. My parents were born & raised in Tennessee. They moved to Indiana when I was 3 weeks old & are buried in Indiana. Johns father is from Illinos & his mother from Indiana. I have a data base for my genealogy files with over 90,000 entries. I have over 20 file cabinets with obits, birth, wedding, etc. announcements that I have collected from newspapers for over 20 years. I clip everything hoping someday they will connect to someone in my data base.

On the first of each month I e-mail "IMPORTANT DATES" to my mothers family, my dads family, & both sides of John family. This encludes birthdays, anniversary, and In Memory Of. Each posting also shows name, birth date, parents, grandparents, great grandparents. My family really enjoys these each month. This also helps me to keep my records up to date & to make sure the information I have is correct. If I have missed someone or if something is incorrect I get an e-mail with a correction.

I also have files on facebook. Everyone enjoys these. I have connected to a lot of family members on facebook.

I love genealogy and collecting all the information I have. It's like a giant puzzle trying to find all the pieces.

My husband & I have been married for over 40 years and have one son & 2 grandchildren. For our retirement we started raising buffalo about 19 years ago. Our web site:

Thank you for your contributions to Find-a-Grave and especially for sending me the edit for the place of death for Madylene Anderson Mowery. I knew she died here, it was in her obit, but I must have been interrupted when I added it. I am sorry but glad you gave me the reminder to fix it (which I did.) Thanks again.

Addie Boles
Please send me the document you found her name in. She is my great-grandmother. I've heard Adeline, Adelaide, etc. but the only true documentation I've found just shows Addie. I assume it's a nickname but cannot find anything substantial to show her real name. I'll be happy to change it once I see what you've got or perhaps a link to where you found it.

Thanks a lot

RE: horace guffey
No , Your memorial is just below the one already in that cemetery. I am sure just checking each cemetery before adding anyone will solve the problem. The other one is dated just before the one you posted. And also, thank you for all your hard work.

I am sorry but you have made a double memorial of Horace Guffey in Morgan Co., Tn . Someone had already placed a memorial and you should add to their memorial not make a new one for yourself. Please reconsider your choice in this matter. Thank you.

On bio, Jo (Hensley), Brenda (Parsons) & Bill were Dorsey Scarbrough's children with Geraldine and not Harold's.
