Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been climbing around
on my Family Tree, swinging
on it's branches, and digging
at it's roots for over
30 years, (since 1975).
I have been widowed since 1991, retired in 2005.
I LOVE Find-A-Grave. It is a wonderful
asset to the genealogy world.
If I've created a record that someone
needs to correct, update or add
information, please let me know and
I'll be glad to add your information
for you;... or if the person is your
direct family member, and you would
like to have me transfer "ownership"
of that memorial page to you, please
let me know...If that person is not
related to me and they are directly
related to you; I will be glad to
transfer their memorial to you.
However, I want to note:
Nearly all of the memorials that I
have created are connected to my
family tree and are a result of a
lot of years hard work and research.

To all the members who have been
kind enough to transfer "ownership"
of my family members to me....
Find A Grave is one of my favorite
It has given me a place that I can
remember my loved ones and honor
their memory.

If you have time, please leave a flower
for my dear husband, Roy E. Hughes.

RE: Margaret A. Burleyson #23284553
Thanks, LoRetta. Found the record you cited & it certainly disproves the church records. Thanks again, Jim.

Thank you for the transfers!

Thank you so much for the transfer of the memorials for my 3rd great grandparents, William Pope Watkins and Mary Eveline McAdams Watkins. Also, a very special thank you for the transfer of the memorial for my great great grandmother, their oldest daughter, Mary Elizabeth Watkins Carroll.

I appreciate it more than you'll ever know.

Do you know where you got the first name Robert; source?

Very curious. Never saw his first name as Robert, only Thomas.

Thank you,

W. S. Childress
Hello Loretta.
I have been trying to trace the lineage of my grandfather Albert H Childress. From what I can tell his father was EGW Childress b.1849 TX, his grandfather was Wiet (Wyat) S Childress b.1815 TN. I have not been able to determine the parents of W.S. childress. I noted your name on the find a grave website and thought you might have those names.
Thank you for any help you can provide.

Memorial # 29818728

My name is Nancy Fisher. If you would be so kind, I would like to have the Christena Fisher Memorial #29818728 transferred to me. My FindAGrave #47213022.

Christenia is my husband Jim Fisher's 3rd great-grandmother. Several developments have taken place over the last few years. We have discovered through mtDNA that Christenia's maiden name was not House. She was not even remotely related to them. She was the daughter of Johan Jacob Diehm-Teem and Susanna Roos.

Secondly, her given name was spelled as Christenia. This was recently found in a pack of old Fisher family records and documents that were recently given to us by the son of a cousin who had refused to let anyone have access to them. In this packet was a letter from Christenia Teny Misenheimer living in IL. She was writing about the inheritance she was to receive from the estate of her mother. Numerous times in this letter she refers to her mother as Christenia Fisher and herself as Christenia Teny Misenheimer.

Thank you for all the time you spend helping others by posting these graves on FindAGrave
