Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am no longer working at the local community college in Disability Services, and I miss my job and the boss who hired me, she was wonderful. My job was eliminated, I assume because of all the cuts to education. Right now I am looking for a paying job.

I love doing ancestry research. I have been working on my family tree & visiting graveyards since the 70's. I welcome any 'cousins' who contact me, especially with family photos, I believe "a picture is worth a thousand words".

My family research is mostly centered in Spartanburg County, SC, but I have branches scattered all over the country (as most people do).

I have been working to put family pictures on FindAGrave memorials. Sometimes I write & ask to manage a relative's memorial because I know more about them than the creator does, but if a closer relative wants to take one I have over, please do not hesitate to ask.

I strive for accuracy in my memorials, but I do not guarantee it. Please feel free to correct me.

I have lately been adding memorials for my cousin J Richard Gosnell, whose research is concerned with his Gosnell family and related lines in Madison County, NC, Spartanburg, SC, Greenville, SC and connected areas. Richard lives in Spartanburg and is listed in the local phone book, he welcomes being contacted by anyone who is interested in adding details to his family tree and learning from his research.

RE: Cudds, Lawsons, many NC & SC names
Jeni, I am afraid I do not know much about the Cudds. They are my husbands family and he died in 1987 and most of his family that could have helped me were already gone. I have tried to build this on my own. I know facts from census, cemetery records, and I visited some of the older members of the family when I first started searching. They lived around in Union County, SC. I know that my husbands grandmother was Nancy Fannie Cudd who married Edward Lawson. I know where they are both buried. Fannie was from the first marriage of Johnathan Lake Cudd and Amanda Burgess. He married a second time. I have never found out what happened to Amanda, where she is buried or anything. In later years he lived near Whitmire and several of her family wound up here. He was the son of William and Nancy Bailey and William was the son of Carter C and Martha Palmer. Are any of these your Cudds?

Cudds, Lawsons, many NC & SC names
Jeni, I want to commend you for all that you are doing for others through Find a Grave. Thank you.
You are making it possible for people like me who because of age and health can no longer visit the cemeteries. Now I can go to Find A Grave. I have been on my genealogy journey since the 80's and now have a lot of my info on Ancestry and Family Tree Maker. I am trying hard to get as much as I can on Ancestry for my descendants and others to know their heritage. I hope you won't mind my copying your photos for my family files. May God bless you in all you do to help others.

Just a question
Hello again Jeni. Have you heard from Kelly Jane O lately. I have tried to send several messages and no answer. She helped me a lot with Findagrave and I was just concerned she might be sick. My wife has had the flu for 10 days, thank God she is getting better, thanks and regards.
