Bio and Links
Bio Photo Most of my family ancestors are buried in and around McNairy and Hardeman counties in TN and Tishomingo County, MS.
I was raised in Ramer, TN which is McNairy County.
My relatives and I clean the McAlpin cemetery in Ramer, TN the first weekend of August every year. It is nice to reflect on our ancestors and hear stories about them from living relatives. I really enjoying this website and sharing my heritage.

I just saw your message on my Find a Grave page. I have not received a message from you. I have searched my mailbox and can find nothing. I am sorry, but do not know what else to say except to ask if you would please resend it. Sincerely, Gay Morton

Doug: You're very welcome & thank you for the kind words. Every time I do a F.A.G. photo request I go ahead and try to photograph any veterans grave sites that I discover and Paul Blakely was one of those.
thx, Mike

RE: Deming
Yes Doug I have heard of your family name through many of my cousins (Ray,Roberts,Herbek) and of course my grandmother Ida Byrd knew many in your family line. I discovered Sadie Blankenship-Deming because she was married to my other grandmother's Brother (James Bradford Deming). Then her siblings I found easily because her father had such an unusal name. I had information on Frances Evelyn Blankenship-Boyett but I did not have anything done yet on Virginia. So thanks so much for your contribution about her life. It is cool she was married to Charles Franklin Byrd.I did not know that. I am sure at some point I would have found out the information you shared with me but you sure saved me time by telling me now. You mentioned watching them play ROOK. I always played that with my family too and I never thought about Rook being someone's last name until I found some in my own family tree. It is amazing how many people you remember vaguely as you start working your family line. Thanks so much for messaging me and I appreciate all the help. Pass on anything you see I have missed because I truly do want to make sure I do the best job I can.After all it is much easier for us to compare notes and get it right now than someone else to try to figure it all out in fifty years.
