Bio and Links
Bio Photo I enjoy using various records (death certificates, funeral home records, obituaries, church records, family records, etc,) to determine burial location for graves that are no longer marked. I think that it is especially important to identify and document these individual's burial location, if at all possible... and to then connect them to their families.

I research many families from the Vale and Bruceton areas of Carroll CO, TN; the Mansfield area of Henry CO, TN, and also from Benton CO, TN. Main families researched: Presson, Turner, Crews, Watkins, Myrick, Cain, Flowers, and various associated lines.

I also research various lines from Hardeman/McNairy Counties of TN; Tishomingo and Alcorn Counties of MS, and Franklin, Lauderdale and Limestone Counties of Alabama. Main lines researched in these areas include: Isom, Hurley, Paysinger, Brown, and Arnold. Lastly, I research various families from Lauderdale CO, TN.

I am happy to make corrections or add details to any memorial via the "Suggest A Correction" button on the memorial.

I have no intent of commercial or financial gain from posting information on this site. I do this solely as a service to others searching for family burial locations for personal or genealogy purposes. I would greatly appreciate your cooperation in NOT COPYING my photos to other websites.

RE: Juanita Meloy
You're welcome. I had added her as Juanita Johnson but then spotted your site for Juanita Meloy when I was looking for her husband. And I don't need credit for it if you want to remove it.

I'm always in a quandary as to how to add ladies when they remarried and the obit has a different last name than her first husband's.

Happy to do the work on this site. It's fascinating and love to pay it forward. Found so many of my distant relatives on it.

You keep up the good work too.

Best regards,

klassikat - Andi

James A Turner
PPC, you added an obituary for James A. Turner on 8-30-2016. May I have your permission to use the obituary on, please? James was a brother of my 2-Great-grandfather, George F. Turner. Thank you. Mark Patterson

RE: Melissa Wallace Smith
Her parents were Evan Miles Wallace (aka Richard) and Elizabeth Jane Dark. They both died in the Hornbeak, Obion TN area. Often spelled Malissa in the family as well.
Malissa was born in Marshall County TN, and the family migrated after the civil war to Obion at some point before 1870. Malissa was my great grandmothers sister. Large family with 14 children. Thanks for the offer of editing the site, but though I search findagrave, I've not done much editing and posting and find it a challenge.
