Bio and Links
I was raised in the Texas panhandle and finally made it back in 2005. Have been interested in genealogy for about 20 years. Hate the opportunities that were missed before when I tuned out the old folks when they told the family stories and spoke of earlier relatives. I was introduced to Find A Grave by a friend and was instantly hooked.

Families I research are Beck, Brothers, Cogdell, McComas, Poage, Spicer and Walker.

I will gladly transfer memorials if you let me know your connection. Corrections are welcome.

How we wish we'd asked more questions!
Thank you for adding Eliza B Smith Doyle, the sister of my grandmother, Anna Ruth Smith Thomas, to your memorial. There were 9 children and I've managed to track down findagrave memorials for 6 of them so far. I feel like I'm re-uniting the family :)

I'm writing to let you know I loved your bio and totally agree. So many opportunities missed that we would now give anything to go back and ask questions and listen to our older relatives! :(

Jim, thank you so very much. I just found the missing link for my departed grandmother. Now I have so more insight into her sadness. Thank you.
