Bio and Links
Bio Photo While descended from three railroad men, I served 4 years in the Navy during the Vietnam War, after graduating with a B.S. in Industrial Technology from Miss. State University. Was stationed with NATO, just outside Oslo, Norway, in Kolsas, Norway working at a communications complex. After mustering out in 1974, I went to work in the Automotive Aftermarket with a automotive parts manufacturer as a Sales & Marketing Representative for almost 20 years, then with a local Automotive Aftermarket Distributor for 15 years, then retired.

My Aunt Juanita Reed in Oklahoma was an inspiration to me when she researched the Reed side of my family, who resided in Warrick Co., IN and Barry Co., Missouri, where most of my father's descendants also ended up from Burkesville, Cumberland Co., KY.

I began assemblying information on my families after I retired, then joined, and proceeded with research into my Akin, Reed, Greer, and Stab immediate and extended families.

My Stab side of the family immigrated in 1892 to Wheeling, WV from Hottweiler, Germany / Hottviller, France, where their descendants lived for over 300 years. I have this part of my family fully documented on

If you are on, I can be found with the Robert Carl Akin Family Tree.

I welcome contacts and am open with any information, photo's, or documents I may have, regarding my research.

RE: Martha Lee Meyer (Staggers)
Hello there! Martha Lee is the grandaughter of James Lawrence Staggers. She is the daughter of Bert Staggers and you also took his gravestone photo at Croft. My computer is messing up so I haven't been able to check on her husband.

I don't know if you remember all the time and help you gave to me when I was searching for my grandmother, Sudie Bailey Lee. We coudln't find a marker for her, but finally decided that she's buried in the empty space beside my grandfather, Thomas Jefferson Lee at Croft.

Thank you for making the memorial page for Martha Lee.

Really nice to hear from you,

James Calloway Triplett
On James memorial you have him listed as the son of Lewis Triplett and Prudence Roberts. ON ancestry he is listed as the son of Joel Triplett and Jane Jones. He is listed with the same birth and death date and all the information about Mahala being his wife. Is there any proof that you have that list him as the son of Lewis and Prudence. I would really appreciate a reply. If I can help you with anything I would be happy to.
Thank you Joanne
