Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a native Texan, born and reared in Northeast Texas. I have been researching my families for about thirty years, making me the family historian.
I have spent weeks, days, and hours in many states researching the courthouses and walking the cemeteries looking for my family.
Just recently I began placing memorials to my family members on findagrave; a wonderful website. The majority of my postings are my family.
I try to acquire photographs of my relatives; this makes me feel as if I actually know them.
I am a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution, the Daughters of the Republic of Texas and genealogy is my passion.

Your tombstone stands among the rest
Neglected and alone
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished marble stone
It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn
You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born
Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood and bone
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
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

Gordon Ferrell Duke was my husband's father. He noticed you maintain the memorial (#81504260), and that your last name is Duke, and would like to ask how you are related to Gordon? Thank you!

Just found out that I'm actually a Hamilton. Jeremiah Jay Hamilton is my grandfathers granda. This is amazing information you have put out there. So I'm guessing we are some how related.

I enjoy reading old newspapers at the Library of Congress website. I ran across a little wedding announcement for W. E. Sipes and Lena Mills in the McNairy County Independent of 11/10/1916. I thought you might like to see it.
