Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been doing genealogy for 36 years and have collected an enormous amount of material that I have made available on my numerous web pages and my rootsweb database.

Some of the names I'm researching are Willard, VonAllmen, Jolliff, Heral/Harrold, Colyott, Huddleston, Baty, Lindesmith, Pease, Johnson, Metcalf, Spurlock, Estes, Casey, Momenteller, Wright (in the US). And my husband's lines: Freeman, Webster, Mapp, Shaw (in Canada & England). I have most of the info I've found on these families at my website.

Just in the last few years I have gotten interested in Find-a-Grave and I love the possibilities it offers. I have been trying to get a lot of the information I have up on these pages, whether they are mine or not. I'm not trying to amass 30,000 memorials--though I genuinely appreciate those who have contributed so much in this way! Most of the time I spend on this site is helping other people make links, add information, and add pictures to their pages.

If you are more closely related to the people I have pages for, or have more information, I'm usually happy to transfer a memorial--UNLESS you are one who doesn't do transfers to other people, or who only transfers within FAG guidelines.

You are welcome to use any of my photos. I don't believe that old pictures "belong" to anyone.

According to the editor of the Muskogee Phoenix, obituaries are not the property of the newspaper because they are paid for by the family. Therefore, it is not a copyright Infringement to use them.

Hi, Mary Jo.
You were a big help to me when I was starting genealogy about 25 years ago. I'm still at it, and am glad to see that you are also.

Noted that the above is also your 4th Gr Grandfather.
Also noted the name Lindesmith.
There is a family by that name in Ohio.

Guess what Find A Grave is doing now. It is taking memorials that we create and transferring them to other without our knowledge or permission. Case in point, a memorial I created for my cousin in 2015 158408570

Hi Mary Jo,

I love the picture posted on Minnie/Jack's memorial of the 2 women(?)

Do you know which one if Minnie; if so, who is the other one?

This is the second hermaphrodite I have come across, but the other one was in a different family line.

Do you know when Minnie Beulah became Jack? Still listed as female in 1930 census.
Must have taken a long time for her/him to make up his mind.
