|Bio and Links|
I live in Memphis, TN. Both my parents were born in the area around the very small town of Finger in McNairy County in West Tennessee. I became interested in my ancestors in January 2010, when a church friend sent me an old family photo which was taken about 1892. Her great grandmother was in the picture and she thought one of the younger brothers in the photo might be my grandfather. He was! |
The photo was my great-grandparents and their 10 children (before the 11th was born) and all the names had been written on that old photo! That photo really got my attention and I wanted to find more about each one of my grandfather's siblings. Sadly, I did not get to visit with my grandparents very often and I am the only OLD person left in my family : ) so there is no one to remember, no one left to ask questions. So I started researching. I am so thankful someone had the wisdom to write all the names on that old photo. Without those names I would have had no place to start.
It is so important to write names and dates on your photos!! I have tried to do this through the years – regretfully I have missed many and have had to estimate or guess about them. I am in the process of scanning all my pictures to make a ‘family photo journal' CD so each of my children and grandchildren can have a copy. Now I will add our family genealogy records so they will know about their ancestors.
I was excited to learn about Findagrave where I can make lasting memorials to my ancestors so they will not be lost and forever forgotten to the ages. I am thankful for Findagrave and Family Search especially, and all their wonderful volunteers who have helped so much in my research.

I just now figured out you were his cousin. He married Emma Barham, a cousin of mine. I'll try to update all the Jackson memorials when I can. I dont get on the internet much anymore.
I appreciate your willingness to move all the info to the original after transfer--but it's much easier for me to just delete, which I did. Since I had already transferred Parilee to you, I know you waould have requested Joseph's transfer, too, if you had seen it.

Thanks Shirley, it's good to have some extra proof of her name. If you find anything else let me know.
|Barbara Snead-Haar||RE: Photos in Oakwood and Salem Cemeteries|
Ms. Shirley, I really enjoy walking thru history. Now my nephew is grave hunting with me and he loves it too. I am happy to provide pictures in any of my local cemeteries. I try to photograph graves that were not requested also...just in case someone wants a picture at a later date. It was my pleasure....thank you & God Bless
