Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired woman who loves doing research. I found out about because one of my genealogy friends sent me the information that my mother's grave was listed here. I am researching the names Harrell, Randolph, Chisum, George, Robinson, Horn, Bailey, Shirley, Howell, Pilant, and related lines. The last three hundred years or so they have all been in the south, except a few distant lines migrated to Ohio and Indiana.

If I have made any mistakes or omissions, please use the edit tab with the appropriate information so I can correct them. If you are more closely related than I am to any of the memorials I have created, I'll be happy to transfer them to you upon request.

Frank Prentiss Chisum
I am the oldest granddaughter of Frank Chisum. I would love to learn more about his family. There are 4 of us grandchildren. Will keep checking this site for more info. We are all in Texas for now.

RE: Jett's of DeWitt Co., IL
Thank you for looking. There just does not seem to be much on them in DeWitt County at all. They married into my Byerly's is why I was searching.

RE: Harrells in Smyrna Cemetery
I was glad to do it. I had wanted to walk that cemetery for some time as we live close by, and this gave me the motivation to go do it and see some of the older headstones as well.

The headstone lists the birth year as 1917, not 1911 as is shown in the memorial record.

Jett's of DeWitt Co., IL
I was wondering if you could figure out how my Sarah A. Jett might be related to those in DeWitt Co., IL buried in Randolph & Crum Cemeteries. My Sarah A. Jett was born around 1847. She married James F. Hill in DeWitt County in 1863 and is on the 1870 and 1880 census there. I have no idea when or where she died. They had 2 children: Mary B. Hill and Estella Hill who both stayed in IL, one dying in Pontiac and one in Decatur. Did your Jett's come from Tennessee??

I think I got on the wrong memorial page but this 4383322 is correct . Our ancestry member sign on is jstewart03_2. I am looking for the more or less exact location of my Uncle Alger's gravestone.

We are in our mid seventies and we tried to walk the cemetery but it is large and the dates are totally mixed. Please help if you can-- GPS location or rows or any clue.

I think you added this picture to the wrong memorial.

RE: Vincent Bales
I am not related to any Randolphs that I know of. I know that mistakes are made on headstones, but if I change the middle initial to G, then someone else will come along and tell me that the headstone says "L" like it is a mistake. I could include both.
