Bio and Links
Bio Photo At the young age of 34, I have quickly become a very experienced genealogist. I absolutely love findagrave. In my opinion, findagrave is in the top 3 most important genealogy websites on the internet. I love traveling to visit cemeteries, and am willing to help anyone who asks. Some of my direct ancestors include: William Horace Hobson (1817-1867) of Fayette Co. TN, Rev. Robert Venable Taylor (1822-1919) of Fayette Co. TN, J.D.C. Stark (1819-1895) of Greene Co. OH, Samuel A. McDermott (1841-1897) of Knoxville TN, James White (1747-1821) founder of Knoxville TN, Woodard Bardin (1800-1867) of Wayne Co. NC, Daniel Alexander (1800-1852) of Russell Co. VA, Benjamin Dawson (1785-1850) of Kershaw Co. SC, William Hardy Hill (1821-1867) of Neshoba Co. MS, Eli Monroe Martin (1821-1874) of Hinds Co. MS, James Monroe Ayers (1852-1915) of Lafayette Co. MS, Capt. James Waldrop (1734-1799) of Newberry SC, Edward Hughes of Charleston SC, Gen. Joseph Hutton of Abbeville SC, Moses Peden (1787-1855) of Kemper Co. MS, John Thorne (1828-c1880) of Smith Co. MS, Joseph Posey (1805-1898) of Smith Co. MS.
Please contact me if you have any of those in your family tree.

Memorial Park in Memphis

Earlier this year you requested a grave photo at Memorial Park Cemetery in Memphis. This cemetery is quite large and without a plot location it is near impossible to just stumble upon a requested grave.
I am happy to try to fulfill your request though if you will contact the office and ask for the plot location.
Just let me know, or post the plot on the memorial and I will try to fulfill it in the near future
The office can be reached at (901) 767-8930

Forever loved: Beatrice
I've never heard of a Joseph Hobson or that Grandma and Papa Newton ever adopting a son. They had ten of their own.
He could have been living with them and helping farm. In 1900 they only had three sons. Uncle M
Norman was born in 1900 and my Mother in 1902.
Sorry I can't help you.

Good searching...Beatrice Bennett.

Missing daughter's names
My grandmother Nola Preachers Henderson and another daughter Fay Henderson (had a second husband's name but I don't know it) were Amanda's daughters also.

I found the obituary at my mom's house this past weekend and posted it.

Eldon L. Sheldon
In attempting to fulfill a photo request for Mr. Sheldon (#83072161) I was informed by Lakewood that they have no record of him. I then did a state search on Find A Grave and found one Eldon L. Sheldon (same death date) buried at Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Newton, MS. Memorial # 93064715.

Thank you for all you do on this wonderful site!, Fran

Can you either transfer my aunt to me or can you at least link her to her mother Mary Sophia Heflin (111966245). Thanks,

Thank you for creating the page for my aunt - you are a fast worker! I intended to do this but this was up before I could do it! Danella R. Conway is my maternal aunt and I hope you will turn this page over to me. I take care of most of our family's pages and this would mean so much to me.

Louisa Anastacia "Gracy" Porter
Hi Bobby,

Just wondering if you have the source of Gracy Porter's (Find A Grave Memorial# 139688932) burial. I've seen this cemetery mentioned, but never with a source citation such as a cemetery record or book.

Gracy was my 4th g. grandmother by her daughter Mary Ann D. Lawson Stovall.

Many thanks,
