|Bio and Links|
My name is Sherry Jo Childress,the daughter of Jimmy Norman Childress & Cynthia Ellen McClain Childress. Granddaughter of David L. McClain and Joann McClain of Mt. pleasant Tennessee and Jack Norman Childress and Betty Evelyn Bible Childress of Columbia Tennessee. I dabble in genealogy from time to time not as much as I would like to though, my profession keeps me pretty busy. I started it in 1999 when I began my search for my father's great grandmother Lula Childress Fitzgerald. I love and am pround of my family hertage both the McClain and Childress side. I only wish I had more time to spend with them. When I first discovered this site it brought so much comfort to me to be able to virtually visit the graves of my loved ones seeing how my profession keeps me so far away from my home. I have always had a fascination for grave yards even as a small child I could spend hours reading the headstones taking it all in and wandering about the people that are buried underneath them. I guess it's just the peacefulness of it all and just letting those that have passed know that someone cares and remembers that they were once here in this world.I love living and hope that my time on earth is a long journey but when I pass I hope that I am remembered they way I try to remember and honor those before me. |
