Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in north-eastern Shelby County, outside of Memphis Tennessee, but make trips to other parts of the state fairly often.

I will be happy to provide a transfer or add additional info to a memorial. I love linking family members together and am currently in the process of linking all of my miscellaneous relatives together.

Also, feel free to use the headstone photos I've attached to memorials for your Tree or similar. What's the point of having a photo if you can't use it? Most of the portraits that I've put on here can be found on without much difficulty. If you want to use a picture that I've added—other than one of a headstone—just let me know.

Family lines include, but are not limited to:

Paternal—Collier, Heyman/Heymann, Hooker, Hoppers, Lawrence, Leak/Leake, Malone, Moore, Purcell, Schwan, Teagarden, and Yates.

Maternal— Addison, Bell, Byram, Damon, Fisk/Fiske, Goddard, Gorham, Porter, Raney/Riney, Reily, Smith, Whitney, and Wilcutt.

RE: Collier Cemeteries
I have been timid about requesting and maintaining memorials for family members because of uncertainty of commitment involved, but since I had to set up memorials for strangers when taking cemetery photographs I realized it is no big deal. Please transfer them to me. Thanks.
I get confused with all the Dabneys. My family referred to "Cousin Dabney" and I wonder if it was your ancestor. Did your Dabney live in New Orleans around 1856?
I would like to share information, but difficult in this Public forum. Are you related to those of surname of Dabney Charles' grandchildren, with farm of same name in county of cemetery, or with others in the small town?

RE: Collier Cemeteries
You are welcome. I would not suggest going to the cemetery at this time of year; you are likely to encounter snakes in the dense vegetation. Verbally directing you is also difficult since the cemetery is in the middle of a land-locked farm. I assume some of those in the cemetery are your ancestors? I am descended from Thomas Barksdale Collier/Catherine Page Nelson and Henry Barksdale Collier/Sallie Bettie Hine.

RE: Rev. Warner Moore
Thank you so much Mitch. Yes I am trying to get the book finished and don't have much left to do. I don't not have that much on Warner. Need parents names if you have, well in fact whatever you have I would appreciate. I didn't get very much from his much roll about his service. Anythin would be appreciated.

Arthur Jones Tombstone


Thank you for your update.

Did you get to closely examine the Arthur Jones tombstone, memorial # 121974090? The date at the bottom of the tombstone appears to end in "4," which I can't map to "Oct. 20, 1918" - or is that number ending in "4" relative to something else?

At any rate, thanks again for your pilgrimage to the cemetery in the name of the greater good of genealogy,

Gary Pace
