Bio and Links
Bio Photo Last year was rough and I was very sick that is a lifetime problem. I am getting better and I'm trying to get back into searching and my genealogy again.

I love genealogy and history. I am a bit new at this but I will try anything I can do to help. I think this is a great website because there are so many cemeteries that date far back and information is being lost every year due to weathering, etc. This is site has helped me find some of my relatives so I would like to do the same for someone else. I came across this site through my own personal search for my and my husband's ancestors.

Shelly(self)- Dad's side-Witter,White,Neill, Lee,Robinson,Tippett,Caldwell,Crockett,Blount, Fulton, Thomas.
(My aunt's genealogy has led us to David Thomas, signer of the TX Declaration of Independence)

-Mom's side-Axline,Britain,Rice, Kennedy, etc.

Cody(hubby)- Dad's side-Rhodes, Biggs, King,and
Thomas Jefferson Rusk.

Mom's side-Bauman, Bilton

Our family joke is that we were destined to be together generations ago because of our historical connections.

RE: Elizabeth Witter
No problem. I'm a direct descendent of her also. I'm pretty sure this is it and her husband is there somewhere. It is a very old and odd cemetery with multiple headstones hard to read.

Thank you so much for placing the photographs on these memorials. I am researching them for any Civil War service that may have, to put in the U.D.C. database. I appreciate your time to fulfill these photo requests.

Thanks again.

Charles E. Witter and Laura J.Witter
Hi Shelly, I need to delete that former note to you.

I had Charles in the wrong cemetery and didn't have much information on him, so I simply deleted the memorial I had for him.

Laura, however, was not buried in Rhode Island. She is buried in Alfred, New York. So, in that case, my memorial is correct (#120878277). Go ahead and delete your memorial (#118581576)and let me know when you've done it and I will transfer my memorial over to you.

Am I making any sense? We need the photo of Laura's stone in Alfred, NY.
