Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been working on my family tree for nearly 30 years. I am descended from the Daniel Boatwright family of Virginia, through John Daniel Boatwright, a son of John Joseph Boatwright, who moved to Kentucky in the mid 1820s and then purchased land in Illinois in 1839. A few of the surnames I am researching are: Boatright/Boatwright, Fields (of AL), Terry (MS and AL), McCartney, Allen, Brown, and Hayden.

I enjoy photographing cemeteries and will many times create a memorial for photos I have which are not relatives of mine. If any of the Memorials I have added are direct ancestors of yours but are not direct ancestors of mine, please let me know and I will happily transfer the Memorial to you.

RE: Landis markers
Thank you for finding Amy Pearl Landis. She is the person I was looking for. She was my grandmother's cousin. A little distant but she wrote my grandmother often and I have her letters.
I would like to maintain her site and get her linked up with her family.
Thank you for going out there and finding her.

Re: Basil Thomas grave in Hugo Cemetery
First, I would like to thank you for the time you took searching for his grave.

Is it possible he was buried in an unmarked grave? Do you know of any way I might check on that?

Once again, thank you for all of your time. I really appreciate it,
