Bio and Links
Bio Photo in 2011~~ I became very interested in researching my dad's family HORNSBY & I started in Tallassee, Alabama for that is where much of his family is from as I understood from him as he has led me to discover KIN I never knew I had. It also was amazing to watch my 5 sisters as I shared with them. As we grew up, we had very little contact with Hornsby's other than my dad's siblings & I will never forget what my baby sister said ''oh my I thought we were the only Hornsby's'' she was amazed at the cemeteries filled with relatives as we explored. It made me think about all the people who really did not know family from the past. How sad for that to be lost. I have come away with a desire to add what I can as I take photos & add to this site. I have also come away with this understanding: ask your relatives, especially the older ones for when they are gone unless they wrote it is lost. When we know our relatives it gives a sense of ''belonging'' a sense of ''completeness''. Yes, we may discover things we did not want to know yet it accomplishes our ''wholeness''that we belong to a family unit created by God Himself.. Even in the Bible geneologies are written for those who ''come behind'' may we do the same!
***please take note****all photos added by me of grave sites that have been personally taken by me/people, events are photos owned by my family/I can only speak for myself and the photos that I have taken. I am giving my express permission for you to use MY photos in any way you see fit in your family research on this site or other sites BUT they are not to be sold.... If you would like you may copy for your personal treasures of the family. Thank you :)
PLEASE BE KIND when making request of me. I will add, this is about memories of loved ones not trying to outdo the other or get someone in trouble. I am sure we all overlook things on FAG & make mistakes. I do not mind you asking for corrections either through the public, private email or the edit tab. I do not mind transferring your loved one to you. If I duplicate it was indeed an error & if you did yours first, please ask kindly for me to delete it. I am here, as you are, to honor & have a place of memory for others who have gone on before us. Thank you !!

Terrell Golden & Marilyn Crenshaw edits
Thank you for the updates to these (2) memorials. I did not know for certain the wife link for Terrell Golden, so I left it for someone who knew the relationship to recommend! Thank you for pointing out the parents for Mrs. Crenshaw too. I appreciate your help and work for Find-a-Grave!

RE: photos
I deleted the photos under Joseph Dunaway, and looking at the dates, it appears to be same person as Joel Dunaway, just incorrect name. I didn't try to reload to Joel Dunaway as there was already a pic of grave on that one. Please advise if I am incorrect on my thinking on this one.

Gary Parrish
Thank you Ann. I have not tried to create any other memorials but Gary's and it is very important to me to maintain his since he is our son. The other memorials I maintain were transferred to me when I kept sending info on my ancestors to the people who created them. However since most of what I do is either Parrish or Wingard I am happy to have them and will do my best to find out who their kin is and add them to their memorial. I have enjoyed searching for Wingard ancestors and it has kind of become a mission for me.

Thank you for understanding.
Will see you at the celebration for Gary.
In Him, Linda

Dear Ann, I thank you so much for the memorial you created for Gary and the precious words on it. I hope you won't mind if I ask you to please delete it. I also created a memorial to him yesterday and I would like to maintain his memorial myself. Please don't be offended at me but I would like to take care of any additions to it in the future instead of anyone else. I only had time to add the memorial but will go back and add family info in a few days. If your memorial was already created I didn't see it and I don't want to cause any hard feelings.
Our son is at rest now with Jesus. Over the last 13 years he has struggled every day to keep going but all the medicine he had to take over the years took a tremendous toll on his body. We wanted him healed but God knew he had all he could take and took him on home. Our prayer is that some of Gary's unsaved friends will be at his funeral and hear about Gary's testimony and come to know our Lord. I know Gary has prayed for some of them for many years. Please pray along that line because we know it would make Gary so happy if just one of them came to know Jesus.
Thank you Ann for your prayers for Gary.
In Christ, Linda Wingard Parrish

William CCC Smith
Hi Gloria,
I have been back tracking on my husbands Smith family and found William C Smith on find a grave. William C Smith is my husbands great Uncle. His father is Soloman C Smith a Senator from DeKalb County, Alabama. He died in office in 1846 leaving a wife and five children. They are listed in the 1850 and 1860 Census of DeKalb County, Alabama. He married Sarah Jane Norman in Madison County, Alabama February 9 1830. He left a will in DeKalb County, Alabama naming his wife, children, and father.
I noticed you tried to get in touch with me in 2014. I am sorry if I didn't respond to your message. I don't remember getting your e-mail. I lost my husband in August of 2013 and have been pretty much out of pocket.
If you need more information please feel free to e-mail me.

RE: Herbert Hornsby
Ann, you're so welcome. Tell me the names of the ones you'd like transferred to you and I will do so. I have Edits that people send me, either on my Edit page or just an email asking that I add, link, etc the AL Hornsbys. I'd love to send them to you. Let me know. A list by regular email would be fine. Nancy
