Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been interested in genealogy as far back as I can remember. I can remember looking at all the family names and birth and death dates that my Mother had listed in her bible. It always fascinated me from a child up.

Then as I got older I started my own records, of course my base I copied from Mom's bible. My data base is quite large now.

If you find errors, please let me know. Sometimes genealogy can really get confusing.

If you find errors, there is an edit button on each memorial, this makes it easy for you to leave me a note, so I can correct it. Just click there and leave the message or send me an email either way will work.

Be sure to click on photos for information on contributors and identification of people in photos as well.

Thank you for viewing the memorials I am working with. I appreciate you taking the time to view them. If you have anything to add please do. If you have time please feel free to add flowers too. Everyone needs lots of flowers.

I want to thank everyone who has helped supply photos, headstones, transfers and information. Without your help this could not be possible, I really appreciate everyones help and support.

I was born in Oneida, Tennessee, but have spent most of my life in Indiana, where I live now.

RE: Headstone photos.
You are welcome. I have photographed a lot of cemeteries the last few years and H.C. Smith was one of the easiest I have ever done. It was well kept and in rows.

Frances Creekmore

Thank you so much for posting photos of Frances Creekmore headstone back in 2009. He is my great grandfather. I can provide all the information on his life. I just joined findagrave.

Arvle and Georgia Byrd gravesite.
The stone at Mom and Dad's gravesite is the foot stone for Bonnie Lou Byrd Painter. When they buried Bonnie, they wanted it be known it was their daughter. While they had seven children together, this stone is actually a foot stone. It is not marking the grave of another daughter. I hope this helps solve the unmarked grave. You are doing a great job for all of us, especially for ones that live far away. Thank you very much, Beverly Jean Leonard {Their fifth child}.

Hello Dorothy. I received copies of Thomas Jefferson Sims pension records. I attached them to his memorial and also Eliza J Sims memorial if that is ok. It Tells his 1st wife is Caroline Tittle or Tuttle It is hard to read. Priscilla Lavender is his 2nd wife. Their marriage was Mar 1 1874 Fentress Tennessee. Priscilla Lavender is the mother of Eliza Jane Sims. The pension records list the children and their birth dates. Eliza memorial is 41944965. I am Happy to help with this memorial Eliza is my 2nd Great Grand mother. Have a wonderful day. Susan Phillips

RE: Headstone photos.
How about that? Does it go Abel, William Riley, William, James, Robert? It looks like the same family.

RE: Headstone photos.
My pleasure. I used Find A Grave to find my wife's ancestors' (surname Ellis) burial places, so I figured I could pitch in and fulfill the requests for the same cemetery if I could find them.
