Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been interested in finding out more about family lines since I lost my Mother in 1977. She had started looking into the Chamberlain family so I wanted to add to what she had done.
I have only been connected to ancestery for the past few years.

Kelley relation to Hill lineage
I am trying to solve a mystery. Francis Patterson Hill is my 2 G-Grandfather through his daughter Melcena.

Through Ancestry DNA results, user name bkelley188 is showing as a 1st-2nd cousin relation. I cannot find the Kelley line through Ancestry. Might this be you, or would you know who that user may be? hat is a very close DNA result, but I don't know who that may be. Living persons cannot be seen.

Andrew Jackson Ivy, Jr.
My great-grandfather was James Perry Ivy (we can prove this through DNA and a census. His brother was Andrew Jackson Ivy, Jr. I saw the picture of Andrew Jackson Ivy, Jr. that you posted on findagrave, and I can see that it was cropped from a larger photograph. Do you happen to have the full photo? It would be wonderful if you do and it happens to show the siblings or parents.

Hi, Karen.

I'm new to this site but found a photo on the above site. My mother-in-law's mom is Zella Mae Cantwell pictured in the photo. Is there any way you could e-mail it to me at Thanks so much!

Hi Karen...I kind of stumbled across this site while looking for information about my uncle. In doing so, I decided to leave a flower for all of his fellow soldiers who were killed during the Kwajalein Island battle. So now I'm on your uncle's name and I see they were both in the 7th Infantry Division 184th Infantry Regiment. I don't know what happened to my uncle; I was born in 1973 and my mother in 1947 so neither of us ever met him. I just wanted to send a message to you to see if you knew yours or anything. I keep hoping I'll find something one day :)
