Bio and Links
Bio Photo I welcome information or a correction to a memorial. I do not double-check the auto edits, as I don't have time, plus, I think you would have.
I like to link families (and also women's maiden names) as that has sometimes been the only way I found a daughter, wife, or mother.
If you find an error, please notify me; AND, please use the white Edit tab at right top of the memorial, even if you have a question about a memorial, the suggestion email will take me to it. I will know exactly who and what you are writing about without entering names, and memorial numbers to look it up.

I will transfer a memorial if you are a relative, and I'm not related, but I'd expect you to transfer if someone else asks you and they are closer kin.
I honor veterans (all wars) with a flag, or floral tribute, especially if they don't have one.

With the "new edit" method, I don't always write a 'thank-you' nor do I expect one. We all have plenty to do to keep up. BUT, be assured that I do APPRECIATE any addition/correction, or PHOTO REQUEST you fulfill for me. Please accept this as my thanks for your efforts.

Rev. Samuel Newell at Mound Hill

In your note about Samuel you identify his wife as "Polly Erwin"- Erwin was Laura's (wife of Cyrus) maiden name. The name you want is Hack. Been studying the Newells (my maternal grandfather's line) to settle a dispute with a cousin, & otherwise to flesh out my mom's family tree (she was a foster kid).

Do you study the Newells in general or was this a fluke? If you have other sources/info to discuss I would be happy to collaborate. Need to confirm the Newell/Nute line- I have evidence suggesting that Samuel, Polly & Cyrus *Nute* had their names changed to *Newell* in 1823, for reasons yet unknown. Quite vexing.

Rev Fulton #58010711
I'm sometimes slow, but usually not THIS slow. Was going through some very old (2012) emails to try to get them out of my inbox and ran across the obit for Rev Fulton that I evidently overlooked and then had it get buried in my inbox. So better late than never! Added the obit and also your credit for providing the obit. Thanks. Just call me slow Donna! Good thing I at least still had some old emails.

Reece L Rainwater
Hello. I see a year ago you left a message on Jim Edgar profile with a question about Reece L. Rainwater that in a book of 1959 you had him listed as a minister. Reece L. Rainwater was my great Uncle. He was a preacher in Arkansas I believe. He and my great Aunt lived in Charleston and Bloomer Arkansas. He was my Dads Uncle Reece. He would be the son of Reason Rainwater the civil war veteran.My Grandfather was also the son of Reason. James Allen Rainwater.Is it possible to get a picture of the book you have with Uncle Reece Rainwater name in it?
my email is
Thank you.

Allen Jackson Birdwell #143736436
Hi there, you recently left some information about Allen Jackson Birdwell. You mention that his name appeared in a roll of Free Will Baptist preachers in 1912 but I've never seen this info. If you wouldn't mind pointing me in the right direction I'd greatly appreciate it!

Thanks so much,
Clayton Hollingsworth (3rd great-grandson of Allen Jackson Birdwell)
