Bio and Links
I am a late comer to the "Find a grave", and several people have been very generous in sharing their sites. I have been researching both sides of my family and both sides of my husband's family for many years, along with collateral lines. I have had the good fortune to be the recipient of old pictures, newspaper articles, and old obituaries. Very few of the obituaries were marked with the name of the newspaper they were printed in, but much of the information they contained was invaluable. Even though I have printed a number of family books the "Find a grave", site seemed a great place to insure that our ancestor's memory would be preserved.

RE: Mary Ryan Jones Sharp
Do you know who Mary Ellen Ryan (Jones) Sharp's parents were and where she grew up? I'm assuming she grew up in Scott County, but don't know for sure. Also, do you know anything about her first husband, Granderson Jones? If you don't mind, give me your email and I'll send you a message.

RE: Mary Ryan
Thanks for getting back with me. I seem to be having trouble getting to you on Find A Grave. You can reach me at Please provide your email so I can speak with you. The only thing I know about Mary Ellen Ryan is that she married my great-great-grandfather, Granderson Jones, when she was very young. I believe he was a widower before marrying her. Any information you have would be helpful. I'm not sure about her parents, other family members, etc. I do know that she re-married after Granderson died, however I can't find anything on Granderson either. Are you related to her?

Thanks for your help,
Beverly Miller

Mary Ellen Ryan Sharp photo
I just discovered the photograph of Mary Ellen Ryan (Jones) Sharp. She was my great great grandmother. My great grandfather was Marshal Jones, her son by her first marriage to Granderson Jones. This is the first and only photograph I have seen of her and know nothing about her, other than her two husbands names. Any information you could give me on her, her family or any photographs would be very much appreciated.

Thanks for any assistance you can give me.

Rebecca Pickett Curtis
Hi Frieda,

In Rebecca's bio you state it is not known what happened to James William "J.W." Dickey. He died during the Civil War. I can't say for sure since my old computer that has the info about it crashed a few years back, but I think I found that info while searching pension indices under Rebecca's name. But I do know I found it.

RE: Cottrell
I am happy to send you all I have but I will need an email address. Your profile page does not have one list, only the 'leave a message'. My email is if you would like to contact me via email so I can forward the info to you.....Linda

Re: Cottrell
I believe I goofed :-) I DO have some various newspaper article I found and I don't believe I sent those to you, although I am not related. There are a few birth announcements, death announcements, will being probated, Kathleen Cottrell Puckett dying in the fire (has a pic of her and the two that died in the fire), article with Kathleen's husbands pic, etc. Send me an email with Cottrell in the subject line and I'll email them to you. May take 2 or 3 emails.

RE: Cottrell
Hello, I'm not related to the family...just take photos. I did a little extra research to find out how Kathleen Cottrell Puckett (memorial #112962755) was related to Frances Farrow Cottrell due to being buried next to each other, and I added a grave photo.
I have sent you an edit request to add Thomas and Frances as Kathleen's parents. Their names are on her memorial page but not as the actual links.
I sometimes try to 'link' family members together. All I have is what I found in documents on Ancestry. Kathleen's obit, 1940 census, birth and death records. Wish I had more for you
