Bio and Links
While it has often times been a challenge to research the unknown, it has been so rewarding to work with cousins who share the same passion and the celebration of knocking down many brick walls, one at a time, over years of collaborated research. The collection of memorials that have come into my care, are from the research of cousins and the many volunteers who have come before me to create memorials to honor our ancestors, and to them we thank and appreciate those transfers.

Researching my southern roots:

Casady & Davis: William Casady & Amias Davis both of GA, married in Harris Co., GA. Traveled to AL early 1800. Their son John Jurdan Casady married Missouri Jane Weldon, daughter of Baily & Sarah (Martin) of GA. The Family moved on to AL then MS.

Shelton: 1702 Ralph Shelton Sr and Mary ???, of Middlesex, VA, through their son Ralph Jr. & Mary Daniel. By 1850 The Shelton's settled in Sumner/Webster Co., MS. In appreciation of Joyce Shelton McFarland for putting her 30+ years of travel and research together in the book of Ralph Shelton of Middlesex County, VA.

Mitchell: Thomas Landreth & Sarah (Kennedy)both of GA settled in the Western Division of Choctaw Co., MS by 1850. They had 5 sons.

Woods.Wood.Fowler: Harvey Woods & Elizabeth Fowler married 1831 Marion Co., AL. Census records indicate that Harvey was born in North or South Carolina and Elizabeth was born in GA. They settled in Choctaw Co., MS to raise their 8 Children. When Harvey died, Elizabeth remarried James Blackmon Wood. We honor Henry Bernard Campbell of Eupora, Webster Co., MS for his leadership in research and bringing so many cousins together. Thank you to Lavelle Sutton Davis for her contributions to the Woods and Faulkner lines. A huge "Thank You" to Charmane Campbell for her "Wooden Seeds" website. To Verna Woods Stone for her determination to follow every lead, no matter how trivial in her "hands on" research to identify "Harvey Woods" as Husband to Elizabeth Fowler's and Father of those 8 youngens.

Jordan: Isaac Caswell 1826 - 1863 and Sophia (Siler) Jordan. Isaac was a Confederate Soldier of SC during the Civil War, was captured and died in Libby Prison. They had 5 children.

To all the Family of Cousins who work so well together it is a pleasure to be part of your team.

Researching my Husbands Family:
Chacon: 1884 Morley, Las Animas Co., CO; to 1942 CA
Romero: 1893 Wagon Mound, Mora Co., NM; 1920 to Morley, Trinidad Co., CO to 1942 CA

Researching my Azorean roots:

RE: Willie B McCain
no problem, guess they belong to another family. Did you check the Hitchcock memorials?
Added by B J on Dec 27, 2015 5:00 PM
No confusion, I was just letting you know who I had photos of. Posted three Hitchcock memorials, however do not think they are who you are looking for. Plus posted one for Willie who you mentioned.

I have not made those memorials yet. Will make them and then you can check for Hitchcock's (Mary, Ellen, Sarah and your Sara) .and for the other family members.

Opps, wrong Sara but did find your Sara 1947 and a couple other Hitchcock's also.

RE: Sarah
Did Sarah pass in 1976? I do have a photo for a Sarah Hitchcock also and notice she does not have a memorial yet. Will you make it or should I?

RE: Mattie Woods
Shelton, YES, I have Mattie, Willie and Dollie. Not sure if they are related but for sure you mentioned Mattie.

If you have not made a memorial for Mattie, I can. Let me know.

Abb Woods
Shelton, posted a marker photo today for Abb from Evergreen in Oakland.
Hesitated to post it since you did have a photo of the devotion signage If you want it removed please do so.

Hi Shelton,

I am sorry about the mix-up on Sidney. I did and edit to add her maiden name of Faulkner, but added it in caps by mistake. I then did an edit to change FAULKER to Faulkner. It now shows up correctly as Sidney Faulkner Woods.
I hope this is correct. I am sorry about the caps. I did not intend to do that.....

Merged Elizabeth
Great job! I got home from SLC and dumped my stuff on the dining room table. Haven't tried to get anything straight. I did see a record at the end of Monday that said many came into the US with the last name Wood and converted it to Woods. Some were Atwood and change their names. I was looking at the MA. records for Daniel Wood. Do we have any idea bout Harvey Woods family? Bev
