|Bio and Links|
|I've been doing genealogy research for about 35 years. I started before you could turn on your computer and do the research from your home. While I enjoy the convenience of using the internet to do research, I still enjoy the more "hands on" approach. I've taken many trips over the years to courthouses, cemeteries, to visit elderly family members, etc. along the way. For me, the online research just doesn't bring the same satisfaction that I feel when I am able to go dig up the information in person. I've enjoyed meeting cousins that I never knew I had, and I've also been able to reconnect with family members that I've lost contact with over the years. This has become a great hobby, and I've enjoyed learning all the interesting stories, both good and bad, about my family history. I hope I have and am playing some small part in getting younger members of my family interested in what came before them. |
I'm happy to share whatever information that I have. Feel free to use the grave photos that I've added without contacting me. I've uploaded them for your use. All I ask is that you list where you got the photo along with the cemetery, city, state so others can find the grave if they wish to visit it. I'm happy to take photos of graves in my area for other people and upload them to memorials here. I think of it as a kind of payment for those who have been kind enough to get photos for me. I try to take the kind of photos that I would like to have....well focused, as readable as possible, and a good angle.
As for the more PERSONAL PHOTOS, I'd like to be contacted before anyone adds them to another website or uses them in any other way. I love sharing, but I also like to know where and how my research and/or personal family photos will be used, and I like to know that credit is given to the proper individual(s) if my research or photos are used by others. I feel it's extremely important that future researchers be able to get to original sources of pictures and other documents the same way that I and others did. It's very frustrating to see a supposed photo of someone on the internet, but the person posting the photo doesn't have the original, can't tell you where the original is or any other information about it, and doesn't even know for sure that the photo is correctly identified.
I'm happy to transfer any memorials that don't belong to my family. Just let me know if I am managing a memorial which is of your family member, and I'll get it transferred to you ASAP if I'm not related. I like to see memorials in the hands of family or friends who can add to the memorial and make it the best it can be.

Sabrina: You no longer manage this memorial, find a grave does. They have their messages disabled. This lady, Saluda Richards would have been my father's great great aunt? Well, way back there. I would LOVE to manage her memorial. Any ideas on how to reach find a grave to get them to transfer? Thanks, Dorothy Richards Knight

I have added a photo of Elizabeth Downing Smith to this site. I thought you might be interested if you do not already have it. Joe

Thank You Sabrina for the transfer
|Faith Collins||James Clarence Brown or James C. Brown #78291177|
My cousin Thelma "Irene" Watts Brown was married on 8 Jan 1922 to Clarence Brown. I believe in assessing the census for 1900 - 1940 this same James C.(Clarence) Brown is the son of James R. Brown #81655001 and his wife Amanda Melvina Norton Brown #14928953. On James C. Brown's tombstone it is noted that his birth year is 1896. His military draft form states he was born Dec 28, 1895. Do you have any personal knowledge of this family relationship?
|Christine Jones||RE: Elizabeth Cole|
Thank you! That's very nice of you to do that. My husband and I stop and photograph any graves in cemeteries that we find when we are on vacation. This is one that we ran across but I am not related.

Thank you for the information on Elizabeth Cole you suggested. I have added it to her memorial. Is this an individual from your line? If so, I'd be happy to transfer the memorial to you. Thank you. Christine Jones

I would have emailed you at another email but only saw this one. I am helping someone with a genealogy search of looking for a William King that may have been married to a Fisher or she could have been his mother. Could you email me at email@example.com and let me know if you have a Fisher connection.
|Billy Drake||Lockie Ann Bethel Williams|
I am searching for my great-great grandmother Lockie Williams Stidham. She was born about 1856. She married my great-great grandfather Reuben J George Stidham (Find a grave #118830269) on Dec 31, 1872 in Haralson Co., Ga. My grandfather George Marion Stidham (179296725) is one of her sons. I found her father William Worthy Williams (91154504). She died abt 1892 in Georgia.
Do you have any information on Lockie that you can share with me.
Thank you for the death information for Ella Farden. It's been added. Much appreciated!
