Bio and Links
Bio Photo 2017 season is here in Ohio. I have plans on going to NC this July and working my Smith line in Greensboro, NC. Should be exciting. Here in Ohio, I am still working on my Ward family up in Westville, OH. I want to place flowers on every grave up there that are related to me. I hope to start next month. HAPPY SPRING!

McCarty Family Tree
From LaFollette/Campbell County, Tennessee:
Eddie McCarty and Pauline (Davis) McCarty are my paternal great grandparents and my dad is Phillip McCarty. I know my aunts/uncles from my dad's family but have lost touch from them for quite a few years and I know almost no one beyond that. I'm trying to do a family tree for McCarty/Davis. If anyone can help me with this, I would truly appreciate it and I would like to connect with you, too.
Thanks so much!

Ali Smith, Memorial# 105124807
Hi Helen,

Looking at my ancestor Ali Smith of Campbell Co., I’m finding it a bit difficult to tell exactly how Find A Grave operates. Most of the memorials show entries for the creator of the memorial and the manager, if these are different. For Ali Smith, you are given as the creator, but no separate manager is listed. I assume this means that Find A Grave still carries you as the manager of this memorial.

Since that appears to be the case, will you kindly transfer management of Memorial# 105124807 for Ali Smith to me since I am one of his direct descendants and seem to be the most active researcher on this particular Smith family? Now that DNA has become the newest standard of proof for our ancestors, it seems important that an actual descendant be listed as a contact for researchers who wish to know if they might descend from Ali Smith and Jane Denny. In addition to my online trees, I do have a DNA project set up to assist those researchers who need an answer to this question. As you certainly appreciate because of your own Smith lineage, research on a very common surname can be difficult – any concrete help that can be offered to newer researchers is a boon to genealogy.

Haven’t talked to you for a while – hard to believe that we’ve corresponded over our two Campbell Co. Smith families for 20+ years. Thanks for your attention, and here are my wishes for good luck with research on your Gulielmus Smith family.

A continued thanks for all of the work you do,

Leslie Smith McConachie

Do you have any family connection to the Randall Family? My g.g. grandmother was Margaret Gallion. Margaret was Chester Randall Mother. Any information you are willing to share would be great! Thank you in advance!

James H Miller
I believe that James Miller is my husband's great great grandfather. I see that he is buried in the Miller Cemetery in Campbell County, Tennessee. Can you tell me if this is a private family cemetery or if we were to travel to Tennessee that we would be able to visit his grave. We were recently in Marshall, Missouri where his son, Jesse C Miller (husband's great grandfather)and wife Nancy Narron Miller are buried. I research stops with James and I would like to find out if his parents are possibly buried there as well.

Thank you, Marsha Miller

The Smith family of tennessee
hello Helen,
I am trying to find information on the Smith family from Tennessee, primarily that of Jackson G Smith who married Malinda Terry and had a son Josiah Joseph Smith. I am interested in Jackson's parents and grandparents. I've been searching, but getting conflicting information, and would appreciate any help I can get.
Blessings to you in the New Year, KLC

Ransom Smith
Helen, I am a direct descendant of Ransoms father Gulielmus Smith and as I read the various messages from folks on find a grave many of them are names I have encountered in my genealogy search. I am in search of Gulielmus Smith's wife first name and any info on her family. The only thing I have found identifies his wife as "Indian Smith". I have also met members of the Hoke family from the Second Creek, Monroe,West Va. area, are you related to people in that area? Any info you or any of your contacts may provide will be deeply appreciated. Mike

RE: William King 6664950
I don't know what is involved with supporting an existing site. I am descended from William and Nancy's son, John, who with his brother Victor moved to Madison, Indiana in 1817.

Anyhow....I think you are doing a wonderful job, but if it is a lot of work, I would be happy to help....although I live in California (smile)

Hi Helen,
Can you please tell me where you found info on place of birth? If you can send me that data / scan of document, that would be great. I'll add it to the memorial when I get it and to my personal files. Thank you! I will decline the edit until I hear from you - then add it asap.
Enjoy your weekend!

Nancy Ann Kelly. This record was right so far on
the birth and death of John Moss. 1761-1835.
Nancy was born according to Ancestry in
Granville Co Nth Carolina. It pulled back John's
parents were Reuben Benjamin Eaton Moss Oct 10th
1738-Feb 10th 1819. And Martha Ann Jordan.
Feb 15th 1750-she passed in 1815 in Granville Co
Virginia. I would greatly appericate any help with info you might have I'm really flustrated with these pay geneology sites. for when you add information some of these contributors get really nasty. Thank-you
