Bio and Links
Bio Photo Simply enjoy genealogy and preserving history.

I make mistakes if you tell me, I will fix them.

If they are family, I will gladly transfer.

My aim is to honor the past. Items added to biographies are typically information I receive via email from unknown contributors and post to memorial. I do NOT fact check so take it for what it's worth...further research.

We are the chosen. My feelings are, in each family, there is one who seems
called to find the ancestors. To put flesh on their bones and make them live
again, to tell the family story and to feel that somehow they know and
approve. To me, doing genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts but,
instead, breathing life into all those who have gone before. We are the
storytellers of the tribe. All tribes have one.
We have been called, as it were, by our genes. Those who have gone before
cry out to us: Tell our story.

RE: Margaret Hanley
Michael and Margaret are buried together at St. Andrews. The DAR ladies came through in 1930 and recorded their headstones.

Elizabeth Blain Brown spelling error
Hi Carol,

Im a descendant of Elizabeth Blair Brown, Find A Grave Memorial# 85980907, married to Vernon King Brown, her father was Pvt. Jessee Blair of the Texas Rangers died during duty in White County, Texas in 1837. The marriage certificate written in cursive looks like Blain, buy I assure you it's Blair. There is many written down documentation in family bible and online bios. Please advise correction please. Thank you,
C Ros

Carol: Thank you so much for the transfer of our great grandfather's memorial. We are so thankful that you found him!

His family was kind of the "back woods" type & my husband was raised on ranches & forest camps, so didn't get much schooling, nor time for things like family research.

In fact, he didn't know much more about their names except for "Granny & Grampa Gates"; but, when his mother died a couple of years ago, I was fortunate to find a funeral card for his grandfather and since then have traced their records to find nearly 200 of his kin.

Thanks again for helping with the search.
Cheers~ Shirleen

Percy and Eula Ghent
Are you related to Percy Granvil Ghent Find A Grave Memorial# 37132359? A picture was added by you of a couple. Do you know the names of the persons in the picture? Are you related to his wife, Eula Clark Ghent Find A Grave Memorial# 37132404? There is a slightly different picture but seems to be the same two people. Iím related to Eula Clark Ghent. You can find my email on my contributor page. I would like to hear from you. Thanks.

Colonel William McGehee headstone photos
Im pretty sure you have photos of the wrong headstones attached to Colonel William McGehee b. 1771, Person County, North Carolina, d. 8 Aug 1852, Alexandria, Calhoun County, Alabama.

Your photos are of a different William McGehee b. 1782, Virginia, d. 3 May 1809, Alabama. You can clearly read March 1782 and 4 May on the headstone, and that doesn't jive with the Colonel

This is a URL for the McGehees and you'll find both Williams referenced.
