A.K.A. - DEE☼

Many, many thanks for visiting these mighty special people:

THE INVINCIBLE Phemie the Primal Force
MY Littlest Uncle, who lived only 11 days.

Our Beloved Fur Babies Special Love

I couldn't have gotten better in-laws if I'd tried. Please visit my mighty sweet mother-in-law, Naomi Varnell, and my great father-in-law, Jack Varnell - Jack was a veteran of WWI. Jack and Naomi raised 12 children and a whole lot of cotton on a farm in Oklahoma.

Robert George Jr. Our daughter-in-law's father & Korean War Vet.


My best friend: Regina Davidson

Regina was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, and friend. She worked for the State of Arkansas for 33 years. A lay preacher with the Methodist Church, she led the graveside services for David. Losing her was a staggering blow to her family, her myriad friends, and her church and community. She was Everybody's Best Friend, and I was, I am so honored and blessed to have known her!


There are two little boys buried out on the desert of Nevada, Clyde W. Hart and his brother Kenneth V. Hart . Do please pay them a visit. No kin of mine or anybody I know, just a pair of little boys out in the middle of noplace.

In my "**... Lonesome Places**" virtual cemetery will be found other children buried in abandoned graveyards, off by themselves, or beside a trail, such as Baby Catalina, who sleeps in an abandoned cemetery in Wyoming, where an animal has dug around her little headstone. I sure hope you can pay her a visit.

A little girl is buried in Mississippi, who over 90 years after her passing still has the ability to reach out and indelibly touch people, whether it is a young girl who saw the grave and never forgot it, or a grown man wandering a graveyard, and making special notice of it in a book. Her name is Fairy Jumper , and I hope you will visit her too.

Many, many thanks to my Find A Grave friend, rendovaJJ Coppinger, for introducing Fairy to me!

Many thanks to AngelWings for sponsoring our Fairy's memorial.

Gwynn genealogy
Hi Dorothy, I’m looking for information on the Gwynn family. It seems like we could be distant cousins. On your Find A Grave Memorial# 67847995 for Owen Gwynn, In the top half of the page, you have Owen’s wife as Grace Williams, but on the Family links her name is Grace Fielding Gwynn. I am wondering at the discrepancy. In my family tree I have Owin Gwynn and Grace Williams for the parents of Dollwyddellan Gwynn, my 7th g grandmother. But the years are too far apart. I’ve seen birthdates from 1680 to 1690 for Dolly.
I went looking for Dolly in your tree and am delighted to find her. Your tree is the first Gwynn tree I've seen with sources and a believable timeline. I see the sources you have for Owen. Do you have any sources for his descendents, particularly the Owen, Hugh, John, Dolly line? Dollwyddellan is my favorite ancestor name. =)
Thanks for any help.

RE: Comstocks
I have been absent far too long! Essie's Grankids and Great grandkids are searching for pictures of her. Do you have any? They started a family album on Facebook. If you are a member I will add you!!

RE: John Todd Comstock, 1873-1958
Okay, you will have to send email to c a k e m p a t y a h o o d o t c o m. I can send invite to my Ancestry Member Tree if you have either a free or paid account with Ancestry.

I feel fairly certain that the Isaac Comstock who md. Ann Curtis 1796 in Green Co, TN and then very soon after moved into Knox Co, KY where he raised his family until 1824 when he died apparently intestate. The Comstocks who came to MO came out of Knox Co, KY. Isaac known to be son of Joseph Comstock who died abt. Apr 1802 in Knox Co, KY and left a will. Isaac named along with two brothers and some sisters. Many children for Isaac's brothers have been identified except that no one has claimed Nehemiah, Hiram, and the other "leftover" children. The leftovers fit into the 1810 and 1820 census records for Isaac in Knox Co, KY.

For more info, please contact me. Thanks so much. Cheryl

RE: John Todd Comstock, 1873-1958
Dorothy, viewed your website with parents for Nehemiah, Hiram, Nancy, and Olive Comstock. You have Lyndon Comstock and Nancy Bush. Would you share your documentation for those parents? I have tentatively proposed Isaac Comstock and Anna Curtis. This fellow dies abt. 1824 in Knox Co, KY. It was in the very early 1830's that the Comstocks removed from Knox Co, KY to MO. Any help appreciated. Cheryl

Would like to know if John Todd had any descendants? Can locate him on 1910 census but none later. Please if you have the time and inkling contact me at c a k e m p at y a h o o d o t c o m
