Bio and Links
Bio Photo My family call me Billy Ray. I became involved in Family History after my Dad passed on. He stated that we are related to James Knox Polk, the 11th President of the United States. Through the paper trail and finally through DNA that has been proven to be true. I have worked for years on building over 30 family trees for family and friends. Find a grave has really helped me to locate family in other states, and obtain grave marker photos as well. Traveling each year to find family markers is great fun and rewarding too. Family History and research is the BEST Hobby I have ever had! Thanks to all here at F.A.G. for your help and your giving nature to help researchers find where their family have been laid to their final rest. May God Richly Bless You for your kindness and help!

Twedell Family
I am hoping I might have found a family member to my Step-Mother's family. Her name was Bramblett J Jolley. Some called her Bernadette. Her Mother was Beatrice J Twedell. Beatrice's parents were William Benjamin Twedell and Jenettia Birt. Williams parents were Benjamin Twedell Sr. and Sarah Pearpoint. This is all of her family that I know about. My Step-Mom has been gone since 1988, so I only have her Mother's Bible and the few papers that she left behind. She never talked about her family and I have no idea where any of them are. I am hoping you might be part of her Twedell family and I might actually find a connection. I want her to be remembered and I need to find her family to do so. She was special to me. She raised me and she and my Father had over 25 years together. They are buried here in Washington State. I do have two photos of William B Twedell and one photo of Jenettia Birt with a baby in Williams arms. Thank you for anything you might know. Sandra Nokes

I have transferred your grandfather to you. I am not related that I know of, and it is always my desire for a family member to care for memorials. I will enjoy looking to see what improvements you have made to personalize his page and hopefully make some family links. I love reuniting families on Find A Grave!!!

Old Brick Cemetery
Hi! I was trying to find this cemetery on the map, and I'm not seeing a road called "Old Brick Church Road." Am I just not seeing it or is it called something else?

The reason I ask, is because we go up to Carmack Cemetery a lot and this cemetery is right around the corner from there.
