Bio and Links
Bio Photo I like doing my families genealogy work and also like learning as much as I can about early ancestors graves and locations. Finding, documenting, cleaning, fixing, and restoring grave markers is extremely rewarding and important to me.
I am especially interested in the military services of any relative throughout our country`s past. I am an amature historian and collectibles dealer who also likes to reenact different periods of mainly military history.
My mother`s side came from England mostly through Virginia, Kentucky, and into Missouri starting in the 17th century. They settled in Howard county in the early 1800`s and eventually spread all over the country like many families. The family has recently fixed and restored the old Snoddy/Garner Homestead Cem. outside Armstrong, Mo. on the Willard Sanders farm. We hope to be able to keep it up for a time. Its on to others now as many of you understand. We are currently working on the Mason/Mott Cemetery west of Roanoke, Missouri.
My father`s side came from England and France mostly in the 17th century, as well, and first settled in Virginia and South Carolina. Many of his people eventually migrated to North Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, and then northwest Florida. My 3rd great grandmother on my father`s side was believed to be a 100% Coweta Muscogee(Creek)Indian woman. I am lucky enough to have a copy of an 1881 1/6 tint-type likeness of her and others a few years before she died.
I wish to share any information with folks I can and hope to learn new things from others as well.
I mainly only track relatives but I hope to have a few friends memorials eventually.
If you find any mistakes or discrepancies please don`t hesitate to bring them to my attention. Nobody is perfect. Please remember that many, many, mistakes are made in record keeping. Although human beings do the best they can it is inevitable that these mistakes occur for many reasons. In my searches I see wrong dates, numerous name spelling errors, wrong place names etc., etc.. When listing folks I try to make a determination based on various information and sources and even mention these problems when appropriate. Most all my listed memorials are a work in progress. Many will be corrected and updated as new information is available. Please help if you can. I want things and my posted information as accurate as it can be. For the record! No problems!

Hello Eli,
Dennis just confirmed what I posted on his home page - Thomas Parks b. 1751 Revolutionary Patriot #Ancestor #A087228 IS THOMAS III AND NOT IV.
There is NO Thomas IV.. not in this lineage. He is the son of Thomas Jr. 1726 and Priscilla Blanton ~ Thomas Jr. is the son of Thomas Parks Sr. 1670 and Sarah Miller ~ Thomas Sr. is the son of John PARKE - mother is unknown.

Yes, Uriah Parks and Charity Parks Chandler were brother and sister. Uriah is my 4th great grandfather - Charity is my 4th great grand aunt, so we are cousins! "Hi long time no see" LOL!

Our lineage is documented extensively and with DNA confirmation. UNFORTUNATLY however, too many have created their own trees on this site blindly copying what they find on the internet/Ancestry etc. without researching. They are connecting people without actually documenting what is fact - creating or perpetuating misinformation. I have been a court certified legal researcher and senior paralegal for 30+ years and this quite frankly drives me crazy!!

Would love to see your Bible Record or what else you may have. I have a ton of records I can provide if you would like to see them.

Dear Mr. Eli Chandler,

Thank you for all your doing, have done, and shall do . It is well.

In documentation it is the mainly the scribe which is mostly responsible for errors , as we think they are. Look at the Coptics as they are the only ones with actual dictation from Day ONE, of my Lord Jesus Christ of Nazzerth and his earthly family members as they traveled with him , Joseph, young Mary (mom), his step brothers two, and step sister one, and friends when they fled to what is Ethiopia now. On the maps then it ( Ethiopia ) is shown as vast lands in the continent. By the way the first usage of POPE is Coptic. I was at the Doctoral acceptance of his Holyness, last Pope, with some of my family.

Please add me as your friend. On Find A Grave too.

Jane Givens Morin Harvey, gravestone photo

Thank you for the stunning photo of Jane's gravestone. I see from your comments that the stone was in bad shape, in pieces, in the mud; nonetheless, your photo really is beautiful!

She is one of my 3rd ggrandmothers and the this means a lot to mean, as I'm sure it will be important to many other family members. your volunteer work makes a big difference to folks, I hope you know that.

Thanks to very much!

Here's hoping you have a beautiful New Year in 2014.

All the best!

RE: Chandler links
Hi. Sorry to be so slow answering your message. I'm related to the Chandlers. My ancestor was Ambrose Chandler (wife Jerusha White Chandler)of Carroll County, GA through their daughter Charity Chandler (husband Thomas Hiram King). Many years ago, I corresponded with another Chandler cousin, A.D. Chandler of Cullman, Alabama. I don't know if you knew him?? He was one who helped build my interest in genealogy. He hand wrote many long letters giving me information on our common lines.

Burial Records
While you are in Carroll County, go to Carrollton city hall and check records if they have them.

I have two books on the Carroll County Georgia Cemeteries. All the names are listed in the Horsley Cemetery that had headstones in June of 2004. There are nine to ten rows with 75-100 unmarked graves. Can you give me the names you are looking for? Maybe buried in different cemetery. There are only 7 headstones. I have listed a large portion of Carroll County graves from these books, and also I have been to most of the cemeteries. Ed
