Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have always been interested in family history, asking questions since I was a little girl. I took a genealogy class at church, and that was when my life changed forever. I was introduced to the computer, and the internet.
I have found people I didn't know. I found out their life stories, some of which really surprised and at times shocked me. I have also found living cousins who share my passion or a better word now is addiction.
I have also met some wonderful friends.

But, with the good comes the bad. I have also met some really mean people too. And, in this wonderful business of searching out and preserving our family history,this makes me sad.

I do want to point out, that I appreciate all of the volunteers who have created these memorials, and the volunteers who take and post photos on this site. As in anything worthwhile, it really does take a village. We cannot do all of this alone.

With that said, I am not interested in having memorials of people I am not in some way related to, or do not know. I only want to manage family, which includes extensions of my family, and a few friends.

If I have a duplicate, it was NOT created on purpose. If I am aware of one, I try to rectify that, and ask for cooperation, not a power struggle over "ownership". To me, that is either silly, or selfish.

I have added info and edited quite a few memorials, and I appreciate all the help I have received.
I always leave a flower on their memorials, out of love, respect, and as a reminder that I was there to provide correct information and family links.

My core family names are:
Paternal:White,Sarvis,Kay,Little, Heffner.
Maternal: Deicken, Hellweg, Walkenhorst, Kemner.

I am willing to share information with other family members within reason.
I have had people ask for a GEDCOM file or a copy of my tree, and I am not willing to do that.
I think if people are truly interested in their family history, they would want to experience the research to get a feel for the family, not just the info to transfer onto a file or tree.

If I can be of help to anyone, please ask.
Carol Lynn

RE: Grattan Jennings - 126197389
Thanks for changing the location. I didn't do an edit for his birth day, stone has 12th. I don't know what newspaper his obit was in to know if he was born on the 9th (like computer says) or like the tombstone says (12th). Even his name Gratten (I submitted an edit) might not be right since tombstones are not always correct on spelling. So if his name is supposed to be Grattan, deny my edit.

Again, thank you for changing the location.-Brenda

Clinton Eugene White- more info for you.
Bless your heart for this memorial! I joined to converse with you. Clinton Eugene White is my father. But I was born in Korea in 1960, my brother Edward Ralph White coming first in 1958. I was born Charles Clinton White but was later adopted by my stepdad.

Clinton married my mom, In Suk Yang. She was In Suk White when us kids came along. But Clinton passed when I was two, and my mom only mentioned a brother and ex-wife with children who lived in Utah. Because we kids were U.S. citizens, we all moved to Hawaii after his passing, where I grew up. I moved to Texas some time ago, and I consider myself a Houstonian now.

I'm 57 but knew nothing about my father. I visited his grave site for the first time last year. It was humbling. But he was also in the Air Force, stationed way north, like in Iceland or something. It's on my birth certificate. Might have been classified back then because it was a nuclear base.

I'm just starting to explore his life, thanks to you!

I only have one or two pics, one of my mom and us in Korea (still an aftermath of the war) and one with him and my big brother when he was an infant.

I'm new here but will attempt to upload them in the photos place.

Thanks again!

Dear Carol,
Sounds like a wonderful outcome, Carol. I am sure his page is in good hands, and how kind of you to make great additions to it.

I wish you and yours many blessings.

Hi Carol,
Thank you for your message - I just try to inform people about duplicates when I stumble on them, since there seem to be A LOT of duplicates on Find A Grave. I know what you mean, when people add memorials and don't put any burial information, it is especially easy to create a duplicate.

Since you are related to this dear one, I would encourage you to ask for a transfer. I am so happy to transfer pages that I have created to relatives, and I think that many on here feel the same way. Most often, memorial pages can be most lovingly and accurately maintained by relatives ~ at least that is what I think :)

I wish you a very blessed and beautiful day.

RE: William A Sarvis
I don't think it was a published book. It looks like 114 pages printed and bound, like they would, at a kinkos or Staples Store, but you probably already have most of the information.

William A Sarvis
I already have his military records and it list him as a sadler, but doesn't mention Bounty Hunter. Since we do have his picture which I spent 250.00 to reframe to protect it, I would love to know more about him

RE: Dixie Lee Majors
Thanks for your reply. I already have a book on the Sarvis Genealogy that my grandmother Juanita Sarvis handed down to me. It was put together by a Charles Mallot with the help of many Sarvis Family members and research. I was told that my great grandfather's dad William Sarvis, was a bounty hunter in the Civil War. I have a picture of him that my grandmother passed to me that is in the possession of my brother right now. It appears to be a chalk drawing of him. You might have seen it on my tree. If you have any knowledge of him I would love to know.

RE: Jospeh Atkins
Sorry I am just seeing the post you left about my mother Dixie. Do you have any information on the Sarvis' that I might not have.
