Bio and Links
Bio Photo Deeply interested in genealogy and found out about FAG through my Uncle Tom. I am researching the surnames Smith from eastern Ky as well as southern IL. Millers from the Clay and Bell County areas of Ky. Rapiers from Whitley, Knox, and Harlin Counties in Ky. Sumners and Futrells from Trigg County, Ky and southern IL. Reeders, Caseys, and Jenkins from southern IL. Harman-Harmon from North Carolina, especially Watauga County, and Missouri. Riddle, Tharp, and Tyrees from Missouri.

My mind is like a bolt of lightening, one brilliant flash and then it's gone.

If I have created a memorial that you have information on, please email me as I do not pay attention to the messages left on my page.

Felix Allen
Im working on my family tree and come across a conundrum. Find A Grave Memorial # 31510365, is there a stone or cemetery record that shows his (Felix Allen) Birth: Aug. 11, 1810 and Death: Dec. 16, 1878 ?
His wife Martha J Skinner married my 3rd great grandpa Mar 23,1878 in Jacksboro, Campbell, Tennessee. But Felix didn't die till December 1878 ? Also it seems odd to have a 27 year difference in age between Felix and Martha?
Thanks for your time,

Peyton Thomas Cemetery
There have been several duplications for the Marquess family that I noticed while doing some 'cleaning' today. You might want to check these and contact the person making the duplicates and ask for their removal. (Yours seem to be earlier that hers)

Thank you so much for adding these memorials....surely does help as we 'chase' these ancestors.

He died on 06 October 2004 at his home in Evansvlle, Randolph County, Illinois.

William and Ruth Price
Mr. Smith,
Would you consider transferring William E. and Ruth Price to me? Mrs. Price was my Great Aunt. I have created a memorial for them but I believe I have listed the wrong cemetery and if you will transfer their memorials to me, I will delete mine but add the pictures I have posted. I will also link Mrs. Price to her parents (my great grandparents).
Thanks for the consideration,

George S. Allen - correction
I ran across a discrepancy while following up on some information on George Suggs Allen's daughter Thursa/Thurdy/Theresa.

I see you have George S(uggs) Allen as buried in the House cemetery in Linton, Trigg Co., KY, but you have noted that neither he nor his wife "Phareby Russell Allen" have headstones. I believe this is because this couple is not buried at this cemetery, but rather they are buried (with headstones and the same birth/death dates) at the Allen cemetery in Cheatham County, TN. Here is the findagrave link for this information:

Happy Hunting.

Would like to obtain your permission to attach a copy of the headstone photo that you posted for Henry Quincy Offutt Sr. to my genealogical records for the Offutt Family. I would of course credit you as the photographer. Thanks for taking and posting the photo.
