Bio and Links
Bio Photo This is me MANY years ago. (Where has all the time gone?) I love family history and have met many new cousins in my investigations.

The lines I am doing the most work on are Carpenter, Moorman, Dunlap, Minafore, Frazier, Morman, and Caffey. My lines center in Mississippi and then scatter worldwide.

My Minafore line includes mafia from Cicily that settled in New Orleans.

I have a copy of the newspaper article that had his death on the front page (dated July 1872) and reads that they were glad to be rid of him! The article also included that he had killed at least 15 people and was heard to say that others would die!! Talk about skeletons in my closet....

Ok, that is all for now. Everyone keep up the good work. A failed hip surgery keeps me at home. I will help in anyway possible.

You can always submit edits to add the information to the remaining memorial.

RE: Zuk, Catherine
Her maiden name was Davis, but I'm afraid you'll throw something at me if I make another edit suggestion :)

RE: Zuk, Catherine
Thank you Linda. Her maiden name was Davis. Her mother's maiden name was McCabe.

Linda: Thank you for posting Mary's edit. Yesterday I attended the funeral of her brother John, my classmate. I remember Mary Beth as we called her back in the day. We lived about 1/2 block away. Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Bill Preston

RE: Robert Durr
I have no idea on Patricia. The two wife names are the only ones his sister Iris has given to me.

Robert Lee Frazier dates
Hello, Linda. I am a Frazier with roots in Duck Hill, MS; and my aunt (Mary Frazier) was married to a Minafore. I'm doing research and trying to sort out dates for Robert Lee Frazier (my great-great grandfather). The September 9, 1882 death date shown on his page here does not agree with the date on the tombstone (4/6/85). Do you have information indicating he died not in 1885 but in 1882? Any help greatly appreciated. Many thanks to you. Jan Frazier

Gravestone Photo Permission
I am happy to see that you photographed the gravestone of Mildred Alford in Enon Cumberland Presbyterian Church Cemetery (Memorial# 37719625).

I would like to add this gravestone photo to the (non-profit) Alford American Family Association's collection of Mississippi Obituaries, where her obituary is (or will be) included. You can see the current collection at

May I have your permission to include your gravestone photos? If so, the photo caption will say:

Photo from [cemetery name, city, county, state]—
Permission granted by the photographer, Linda [or your full name if you prefer]

And thanks so much for your gravestone photo work!

Best regards,
Pamela Alford Thompson (Find A Grave #47195155)

Earl K. Carpenter #97313610
Hi Linda,
I am NOT related to either this Carpenter family or the Carter family (Bess Marie Carter born 10/18/1925 & died 6/26/2012 Find A Grave #94182245) to which Earl K. Carpenter is linked as a spouse.***By chance I saw this mistake in linkage.***Sent public e-mail to Linda Cancilla (Contributor #47250781) on 1/23/15 advising she has confused the Mother-in-law Bessie "Bess" Marie Carter (#94182245)as stated in Mr. Carpenter's obituary on his Find A Grave memorial you created with Mr. Carpenter's wife, Rosemary, for whom I did not find an obituary.***Just wanted to apprise you and perhaps you will want to contact Ms. Cancilla and follow-up on correcting this error.
Best Regards,
Mary (Contributor #47792069)
