Bio and Links
When I was a little girl my Mother, Grandmothers & Great Aunts would take me with them to the grave yard to place flowers on family grave sites. We would go to the cemetery on birthdays and Memorial Day. It was on those trips I began learning my family history. I also realized that those trips to the cemetery keep our ancestors memories alive. I tell those same stories to my granddaughter Chloe. I hope one day she will pass our family stories onto her children and by that time there will be a few more stories to tell.

I was born in Bloomington Indiana and was raised in a the small community of Ellettsville just northwest of town. My paternal grandparents are Earl & Dorothy (Cook) Sexton and my maternal grandparents are Ted & Grace (Morrison) Rhodes.

My parents were both only children. But luckily my grandparents had plenty of brothers and sisters, so I had 38 great Aunts & Uncles.

I love history and doing research for my family tree.

Kathryn,
I would really like to do some research with you on Elizabeth Drake. She is my husbands 2nd Great Grandmother. I have a will of hers that leaves many questions, in my research. If you are interested, please contact me at: bstevicks@gwtc.net

Hi, I transferred William Cook to you.

Your story is very similar to mine. My father's family is from the Bloomfield area.

BTW, I think I ran across a picture from there recently, of a class from a school there. May be the one I saw of a bunch of the Galloways at an earlier age. Know which one I'm talking about?

BTW, I think I saw a picture of a class from a school there way back when. Now, just to REMEMBER where I saw it in my office.

Check out the one picture Amanda Clay added - I'M in it as a little girl - the Heckler that Aunt Mag is holding, and my grandmaw Dessie is right in back of her.

Since I'm now in touch with Scotty Galloway, would you like to share more of the Galloway history and pictures with us? I'm trying to put some things together for him and his family and take back up there, along with the pictures he's loaned me.

Let me finish my mother-in-law's 90th B/D bash, Bobby's 50th class reunion, and my Mickler get-together, and I'll be all ready to go. I knew a lot of Whopper's siblings, but just didn't know at the time they were all related.

Do you happen to have anything on the Bledsoe's?

Scotty's pictures are next of my list of to-dos, and Donnie Owens shared some things with me too. Can't wait to get them all going.

I told Scotty I'd fix him up with pics and history and an album. They're really getting enthused over this.

Ever heard of "Dark Star"???????

I'm going to call a Galloway in French Lick this week and talk to him about it. Looking forward to hearing from you!

Hi Kathryn,

You're welcome. Sorry it took so long to find it but I was glad to help. If you have a picture of Kimberly you would like to put on her memorial let me know and we can do that. :o)

RE: Dorothy Bassett Ford
I have linked Dorothy's parents but you will have to ask the person who posted the son's memorial to link to her through that memorial.

RE: Chattanooga National Cemetery
Kathryn---You need to call the office of the Chattanooga Natl. Cemetery at 423/855-6590 or 6591. They have an index card on file for this veteran and it may confirm death in Huntsville and the reinterment; if it does, you have a good case to change the name on the marker. Otherwise, I can transfer the marker to you and you can write your thoughts in the bio section.
Good luck!
John S.
