Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in Shelbina MO, as was my father before me. I grew up in Pittsfield IL and Danville IN during elementary school years. I graduated high school from Tuscola IL. Dad was a Teamster, and his job had us moving too often!

Jesus Christ is my Savior, my Lord and my reason to live. He has forgiven my sins, granted me eternal life, and rescued me from an aimless and empty existence.

Through these memorials my goal is to honor my forebears. Patriarch: Richards, Edward [1678-1755]
of Manchester, Lancashire England and later Hampstead, Maryland.

On my mother's side: the Long family of Frederick County VA.

I welcome any and all communication from "cousins" and fellow descendants.

Anyone's corrections, additions, or suggestions are also welcome. My goal is accuracy and completeness of information on these memorials.

Arnett FAG Memorial# 37996418
I was wondering where you got the info about Elizabeth Arnett's marriage to Valentine Sevier? I have that information in my Ancestry tree, but I have no marriage proof.

If you know someone who knows something about her Arnett family tree, that would be fantastic!

RE: Jones information
Your welcome. Yes, and I think maybe there may have been one or two with the middle name of Reuben.

RE: Edward P. Richards family
My hope in adding information I found to be accurate to any Find A Grave memorial, that someone who is out there hunting will benefit and be able to fill in their family tree with this information. Having grown up at the knees of my mother who has been known around the US teaching research techniques and helping people do their research since the early 1960s through her hundreds of books and publications - so naturally I grew up learning to do research and spend my days when I don't have to earn a living, doing research on my many FTM databases covering my different families and all those who intermarried with them too. I will strive to keep sharing with those who want to know what I find to be helpful. :)
