Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have always had a love for my family and our ancestors, who help to made us who we are. I have done genealogy research since 1995, and still enjoy finding new things about our ancestors today. The older I get the more I appreciate the price they paid to bring us to the day we now live. I was raised in the little cummunity of Elm Grove, Oklahoma, on what I call Webb's Hill. The bottom lands of the Arkansas River, two room school, George Shell's Corner Store and the church (Elm Grove Assembly of God)was where most of my time was spent growing up.

I enjoy visiting the cemeteries and graves, where I can find some of the history of my loved ones. I only hope that my posting pictures to the Find A Grave site will help someone else know a little more about their loveones in the future.

Sorry, I don't know where this cemetery is. I transcribed it from the Calloway Cemetery book and that was all that was listed.

Eliza Stout Smith
I think there is a mistake on the memorial for Eliza Stout Maddox Smith. Eliza was the daughter of James Stout and Elizabeth Rackley. I'm not sure how the Maddox fits in? Eliza A. Smith is a sister to my great grandmother Margaret Stout Mathews. My grandmother said Margaret Smith Melton is her cousin, which is on the same tombstone as Eliza Stout Smith. Can you correct this? I would appreciate it very much.

Thanks, Sherry Webb Jones

Please send the request via the edit field from the memorial as I have no idea who she is...

Thank you

RE: Stout & Matthews
No Kin just get a name and try to find as many as possible and connect as many as possible. If you are you are welcome to the memorials.

RE: Compton
oh after reading this message I am sure we are researching the same family I am so excited to have found anyone. Wayne Compton died when he was 28yrs old. Wayne was Daniel Jr's grandfather that he never knew. He was married to Dorma and had 3 children. Daniel Wayne Compton Sr.(still alive) Michael B. Compton (who was murdered this last Feb. in Orting , WA. while interrupting a break-in) and Laurie who is now a Blue. I would love to share what I have and allow you to correct me where needed. My email is pjlapine35@ yahoo . com. I have an Ancestry tree that I have been working on. I would love to "invite" you to see it.

RE: Compton Family
I do believe we are speaking of the same family. although I will verify deeper. Im excited and dont want to get ahead of my self, but it does appear to be the same family. My problem is that no one on that I have contact with remembers or knows anything. The names are matching I will check the birth dates too.

Thank you Sherry! I appreciate the pictures and information on William Marcus Newsome. I'm great granddaughter of Dovie Estelle Newsome. One time visting Kentucky, Boyce Newsome took me to a little Cemenrary in middle of the woods. I believe it could be where John Ambrose Newsome burried there but not sure been so long ago (35 years), only four graves with head stones, rest just crosses, by a very old odd looking tree. I wish I could find it again. Carol (Farmer) Cunningham, Michigan.
