Bio and Links
Bio Photo The most important thing about me is that it's by God's grace and his constant discipline I'm where I am in my Christian walk. I can claim nothing good of myself... because I know that left to myself, I would walk the way of the world, or become a self-centered pharisee (of the worst kind). God keeps reminding me of who I was before He saved me and that helps me keep the right perspective. I live in Missouri, but was born and raised in Texas. My husband and I have seven grown children. My husband went to be with our Lord on Feb. 18th, 2014. With the help of God, our children, grandchildren, family and friends, I'm adjusting to being a widow. God's tender care has been my lifeline.

I love searching for family and greatly appreciate all those whose hard work has helped myself, and others locate our families.

I agree with my friend, Carolyn (#47303208), who said:

"My pictures are your pictures. Feel free to beg, borrow, steal with no intent to return. I take pictures of headstones out of kindness ... not for my ego, or for the "numbers."

PET PEEVE: Find A Grave "number" collectors who have no interest in genealogy or family links and refuse to transfer to relatives unless they meet so-called "findagrave guidelines". Shame on you!"

Well said, Carolyn!

I've just started taking photos of headstones for others and am willing to help anyone whose relative is buried in my area - Stella, McDonald County, Missouri - (Extreme Southwest part of Missouri)

RE: Wywias
My grandfather (Dennis Earl) would've been maybe a great-nephew?? to Pop. He was the son of Ernest Carl (Jr.), and grandson of Ernest Carl (Sr.).

I noticed that in some of my ancestors pages, you had left a photo. Do you happen to be a part of the Wywias genealogy and/or have any more photos? My granddad/dad/I are Wywias, however I don't have any photos from that side of the family. Thank you!

RE: Martha Whitfield Morris
I went to the Old Tate Cemetery and found the graves of Joseph B. Morris and Mahala Morris; there is indeed a third grave next to them... it is marked by stones but none are legible (I suspect the actual headstone is long gone). I've added a photo to Martha's memorial page that shows all three graves (see caption underneath the photo). If you don't want this photo on her page, just let me know and I'll be glad to delete it. I just thought it might help you see all three graves at once.
Best Regards,

RE: Pvt Samuel Cox
It was no trouble. It was my first time visiting Oakland and I had been wanting to go for a long time. I took a list of photo requests with me and he was one of the few that I was able to locate. It was right where it was supposed to be. If you have any future requests for Oakland, just let me know.
