Bio Photo Genealogy has become one of my favorite obsessions. I've found it sometimes frustrating but mostly rewarding. It's been especially rewarding to meet other people with similar motivation. Thanks to one and all! You more experienced folk have been gracious and have helped me continue. When I make mistakes, please don't be afraid to tell me. If you have a family member you're looking for in the Nashville area, please let me know!

RE: Dad

Great to hear back and, yes, I can send you quite a bit of information as we go along.

For now can you write me direct at

To begin, Dad had 4 children: Jack Speir Armstrong 1935 -

Joan Armstrong Moody......and you had something about her 1937 - 2003?

MaryAnn Armstrong Webster 1944 -

Leslie Harold Armstrong, Jr 1946 -

Hope to hear back at my personal email. I had a heck of a time figuring out my email and password here......hehehehe

So glad you are still this side of the soil and I do hope you are in great health and great spirits.

I had a dream about Dad and a former student last night.......then your response....Amazing

I remember you so clearly.....Didn't your parents move to a brick home just off Capitol Way??

Even as a younger teen I went to the concerts and remember you accompanying and I saw you outside that role many times.

Best and thanks,

In reference to #59177045.
I have reviewed land records signed by this man and his middle name signed by him is Gillington not Gerdner. Several years ago I posted Gerdner as an unproven possible middle name, and now everyone posts it as his name. I can get no one to change it even showing proof. Sullivan county Indiana land records.

RE: Doris Brown photo
SO pleased that I could help! I don't even know what a person has to go through/fill out in order to request a photo, just what I do on my end. I do know that the Mountain View Cemetery in Walla Walla has a database through the City that I can use to search for anyone buried there, regardless of whether there is a memorial on Find A Grave. It is what I utilize to better try and pinpoint the exact location in the cemetery, (which houses the remains of more than 30,000 people). In the case of Doris, and many other wives that I have seen, sometimes it is just the husband's name that has a memorial set up and the wife just "falls through the cracks" sometimes. But the computerized database "knows everything", I would say!!

Addendum to previous message:

Make that "kin" in Tennessee.

Also, this may or may not be of help to you:

Have a great evening!

RE: Doris Brown photo
Hey Dan! I found C Vernon Brown's memorial here on Find-A-Grave (Find A Grave Memorial# 58612248) with Doris E buried beside him on a double stone that is pictured on HIS memorial page. Is that at all helpful to you, or do you need more?

Let me know if I there is something else regarding this family branch I can help with.

P.S. Never been to Tennessee, although I probably have some kind there I never met!

RE: Netti Swan
Your very welcome Dan. I was happy to get the photos for you. I love the bench as the grave marker too. Very sweet idea. Have a blessed day!

J. David McFarland
Also, on my last trip to Nevada, I found an article from the Nevada Daily Mail death files: 'A man named McFarland whose home is in the vicinity of Walker, died at the home of Mr. Denton, in the north part of this city, Thursday evening, Nov 9, 1887, of heart disease. The deceased had been to Arkansas on a hunting expedition and was enroute home." Any thoughts on this being J. David McFarland?
