People call me many things, pastor, library clerk, professor and friend. The one I like the best is friend. I enjoy doing research, solving puzzles and helping people, if I can make a few new friends on the way it is worth it.
Friends, you may use any of my photos for your family trees. Glad to be of assistance.
Thank you for asking permission to use the photos, and yes, you may use them. A couple of the photos had been copied and placed online by a local genealogist when she borrowed them from me years ago, and unfortunately they've been mislabeled as they passed around over the years. My family still owns the originals, but I'm not sure which sibling has them since my parents died.
The book is a local genealogy society's collaboration, Cleveland County Arkansas, Our History and Heritage, published in 2006, and the Andrews family is covered in it, which was originally compiled by Robert H. "Tex" McClain, a grandson of Robert Burns Andrews' half-sister, Martha. I helped Tex with some of the information on the family for the book back then. I don't know if it's still being sold. I've placed most of the Andrews information that's covered in the book on WikiTree, at least of my direct Andrews line (Paschal/Robert B./Robert S. etc.) but I did my own research and made corrections where needed. There is more information on R. B.'s mother, siblings, and such in the book that I haven't added yet.
Thank you so very much for taking the time and making the effort to get a photo of Minnie Tooley's headstone. I would have had great difficulty traveling there myself to obtain the photo. I am so very grateful for your kind assistance! This photo helps me know I was on the right track!
Thank you so much. I recently bought his Purple Heart document and the Accolade that comes with the certificate for my claasroom. Thank you so much. I am going to try to keep researching him. Have a great weekend,
Virgie Van Ooyen Thank you for taking the time to do the photo of the memorial. May I suggest something else for Bessie VanOoyen's memorial? If you have a bokay of artificial flowers or a potted flower, could you take a photo of the flowers in the pauper part of the cemetery? This could be our way of remembering Bessie since we do not live there. We appreciate your time and efforts.
