Bio and Links
Bio Photo We live in a Gainesville, FL retirement community associated with the University of Florida. Family history research has been a passion for over 45 years.

I will gladly transfer any memorial not included in my research. If you see changes, corrections, or wish to add additional information, please use the edit tab to request these changes. If your information contradicts my research, please forward sources so I can correct research errors.

Please feel free to use my photographs for genealogy programs, however, I would prefer to upload my own photographs for Find A Grave memorials.

Most all of my memorials originate from tombstone pictures or credible burial records. Obituaries can prove inaccurate and I try to confirm them first.

Father's families: George, Blackmun, Briggs, Gardiner, Hardy, Kennedy (Canada), Lilley, McCallum, Paxton, Tindall, Thompson (England).

Mother's Families: Wilson, Andre, Blessing, Cochran, Cross, Fiscus, Jackson, McKinstry, Ross, Sober, and Stephens.

Carole's families: Gibson, Bechtel, Boling, Catron, Clark, (K)Coiner, Combs, Etheridge, Hattabaugh, Hurlbut, Misenheimer and Tarvin.

Hi, Done. Thank you. I added bits of records to some of the memorials in hopes that it might help others searching for family. Great photos you placed on the pages.

Thank you for the photos of the markers for Ralph. I love how legible they are. Well done! Thanks for taking the time to do this for me. Much appreciated! How are things in Florida? I've been getting some markers up north photographed and they show snow on the ground… I guess that you don't need to worry about that!

Best wishes,

Thanks for the info. I see you have taken photos...ty so much.
I see there are errors on the records I typed in. What I placed was from written record and apparently there were lots of error on dates.
I will go thru them when you have finished with photos and will make corrections to match info from photo.
