Bio and Links
Bio Photo Our names are David 'DJ' & Judi. We live in Northwest Tennessee but have a great amount of family from Tallahatchie County, Mississippi.

We have taken a great interest in finding out about family ancestors and preserving cemeteries digitally for future generations.

TRANSFERS: Please go to the memorial you wish to have transferred and request a transfer from there. If you want to manage a relatives memorial, please let us know and we will be glad to transfer it to you (except our own relatives). From the FAQ: Fourth, Explain your relationship in the request! While I do transfer out of guidelines, please let me know your relationship to the person in the memorial, not just "They're a relative."

Find A Grave rules on:

"Is it acceptable to add a memorial for someone who is still living?

Please try to avoid it. In general, we do not encourage adding memorials for individuals who are still living. We do realize, however, that when transcribing a cemetery, it is not always possible to determine if the person is living or not. Please do not add pre-need memorials from (1925-present) to Find A Grave. Memorials for individuals who are alive will be removed when requested (the exception being for 'famous' individuals who already have a burial location in place). You are always welcome to create a 'pre-need' memorial for yourself, if you would like, provided that you have a pre-need headstone already in place in a cemetery."

Thank you very much for transferring Mary Fincher
As soon as I teach Mary's brother Walter, and his son how to do genealogy and work with memorials on Findagrave, and Family Search I will be transferring all the files I've created and linked over to them. I recently found info on Walter and Mary's grandparents and great-grandparents from Poland (passed away in Illinois) and just got finished linking them to Mary and Walters dad. I have a feeling though Walter's wife, my step-daughter, will be doing most of the work though. I'm teaching her too for her mom's side of her family as I already did her dad's side. Wonderful family and I love them very much. A lot of the relations reside in Tennessee and Walter is thinking of moving there. Hope spell-check didn't change my message.

Have a fabulous week and thank you so very much again.

Best Regards Sharon

Dear Judi
Hope you and yours are well ?
I need your help. To establish my connection to the Cloninger Family. Jane Bell, daughter of John Bell and Suzanne Bell [ nee Cloninger] Bruce has asked me to provide proof in relation to joining the sons of Confederate veterans. Any information you could provide would be most helpful.
I hope to hear from you soon.
thank you.

Kindest Regards,

Hi Judi.

Thank you so much for your help. As it turns out, we are related. John and Susan's daughter, Jane 1835 to 1893, married David Hay Snr, so So she is my great great great mother, so there fore john and Susan is my Great great great great great grand parents, so I am direct descendant of the Cloningers, your family. Which is fantastic !
Nice I have kin from the states. I have always wanted to go there, tour the civil war battlefields. I am sure you love it down under, though we are in winter at the moment . I look forward to finding out more about our family connection's . Now that I have something to go on. Seems soldiering is in the blood, as an ex infantry soldier, five generation here in Australia. I look forward to corresponding with more. I am very grateful to help you have given me.
Warm regards,

No problem on James Monroe Ashmore. Yes, I am a Ashmore descendant. My 3rd great grandmother is Margaret Ashmore, daughter of James Samuel & Elizabeth Balch Ashmore. If I can be of help let me know.

Mary Ann Long wife of Valentine Cloninger
1837 Richard Long Sr of Lincoln Co NC - conveyance of land 70 acres on Buffaloe creek ( he originally purchased in 1814 from Samuel MCWhorter ) to Valentine Cloninger husband of Mary Ann Long . The additional 130 acres was conveyed in 1831 to son, James Long .

I noted your ancestors Mary Ann Long & Valentine Cloninger . I had contracted with a professional genealogist , Ms Kathy Gunter Sullivan to research my Long ancestors of Lincoln Co Nc , in doing so she found a record where Richard Long Sr b. abt 1765 gave 70 acres to Valentine Cloninger in 1837 who was the husband of Mary Ann Long . The other 130 acres of the original land tract on Buffaloe creek Lincoln Co NC was given by my Richard Long Sr to his son my ancestor, James R Long b. 1811 NC .
There is likely a relationship between my Richard Long Sr & James R Long and your Mary Ann Long Cloninger. I also note that your Mary Ann & Valentine Cloninger named their 2nd son John Richard Cloninger. My James R Long named his 1st son John Richard Long and his 1st daughter Mary Ann Long .
Just wanted to share info . By the way my family who are descendants of James R Long & Richard Long Sr have participated on Family Tree , Family Finder testing which is on sale now for $69 . This test identifies relationships such as cousins up to abt 5 generations.
