Bio and Links
Bio Photo My wife Jean and I have been doing genealogy for about 32 years. We do it out of love for our families. My families are: Wallace, Owen,Rodgers, Farmer, Wood, Wilson, Steelman, Speer, Jacks, Hosier & Kimbrell.

Jean's families are: Hastings, Philpott, Wallace, Green, Bryant, Bateman, Simms, McBride

Update: I have started entering non-members of my family into Findagrave. If you have any correction or would like additional information added please contact me. I will also remove or transfer entry to a proven relative.

My Wife, Jean Bateman Wallace. My Lover, My Friend and the Mother of My Children.

Dear Ancestor

Your tombstone stands among the rest;
In this field of green.
The name and date are chiseled out
For all the world to see.

It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I'd exist,
You died long before I was born.

Yet we are of one, you and I,
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.

Dear Ancestor, the life you lived
One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.

I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.

RE: g g g grandfather
Thanks Bill,

I'm sorry that I wasn't clear on how many greats. I just didn't have my math turned on. I was correct on the 3 greats. William's son, Isaac, his son another William( my great GF are buried in my home cemetery as well as my GF, William Taylor Spear and my father, James Harrison Spear. The cemetery is Spear's Chapel Cemetery in Cumberland County, KY.

Sometime around William Taylor's time the name was corrupted to Spear and I guess in showing possession to Spears by some. Guess I'm somewhere in the middle.

Isaac's Find A Grave Memorial# 45454372

Thanks again, Dale

I have a question regarding Jim's appearance in the John Wayne Alamo film. Did Jim play the Sergeant discussing the remaining barrels of pork not contaminated with dysentery?
