Bio and Links
Bio Photo The photograph to the left is the Abraham Lincoln Tomb at Oak Ridge Cemetery in Springfield, Illinois. Come to Springfield to see it.

I am relatively new to genealogy research, but I have always had an interest in genealogy. I am exploring my Sykes, Settle, Wofford and McGee lines in Stewart County, Tennessee.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Find A Grave is a great help in my genealogy research. I want to "pay it forward" by documenting local cemeteries.

I am working on biographies for all the memorials under my management. A photograph of the marker and name and dates seems incomplete in summarizing and honoring a person's life. Some life stories are inspiring; some are sad; and some are bad.

Most of the biographies on the memorials were created from information published in newspaper articles and/or obituaries. However, the newspaper sometimes has misspellings and errors. Some of the bio are transcribed as published, and misspellings are noted when known. Some misspelled names and places may have been missed.

The names of living relatives in recent obituaries have been omitted to protect the privacy of the descendants per Find A Grave rules.

Please contact me if you have more information on any of my entries or if you have corrections. Errors and typos happen. Incorrect information is worse than no information in genealogy work.

I am glad to update the memorial and link to family members. Please use the 'edit' tab on the memorial to suggest a correction.

Feel free to use photographs I posted on the site for personal use only. That is why they are posted. Please add credit, such as "Used with the permission of photographer, Darrin Moore." Contact me if there is a photo you would like removed from a memorial.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The following is a poem by Vachel Lindsay.

A PRAYER TO ALL THE DEAD AMONG MINE OWN PEOPLE

Are these your presences, my clan from Heaven?
Are these your hands upon my wounded soul?
Mine own, mine own, blood of my blood be with me,
Fly by my path till you have made me whole!

Wow! You found 7 of my family members at Roselawn Memorial Park. Thank you so much for taking the time to locate them, photograph their markers, and add them to the memorial pages.

You time and effort is very much appreciated!

re: Alice Wagy Dyson
Hi Darrin, thanks for adding a grave picture for Alice Dyson. I appreciate it. I was working on Whites which led to Wards which led to Wagys..I don't know if you heard the story that some of the Wagys go back to Whites (Peregrine White) of the Mayflower, but the Mayflower society has proven with Y DNA of male Whites on this line that Alexander White Sr.'s father was not the expected Jonathan White (Peregrine White's son). donna

RE: William Richards # 156872532 duplicate
Awesome Darrin. Thank you. I never knew that. I'll probably find a bunch more records switching the name around. I'll have to talk to my Dad about this, and see if he knew his uncle's first name was William. One of Charlie's uncles (his dad's oldest brother )was also William Charles.

RE: William Richards # 156872532 duplicate
Thanks. I haven't been able to find a record where it is William C. Richards, so I am very interested to see what you find. I wasn't able to find a military record under either. The birth certificate just says Charles. Thanks much.

Humphries and Smiddy
Could you advise me as to why Edna Smiddy shares a stone with Wm and Marjorie Humphries. I am helping a friend do research and Edna is in her line.

Thank you in advance

RE: Louise Graser edits
Not much info on Charles. I did find a 'Directory of Deceased American Physicians, 1804-1929' that lists his Birth Date as 1872.

I find a lot of death certificates and memorials don't match the birth records. I guess in those days of no records they had to rely on memory. What's a year one way or another.
