Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am the ggrandson of Thomas P. Nelms and grandson of Newman Estus Nelms and son of Cecil Otto Nelms. I first got interested in researching the Nelms Family Tree back about 1990 while visiting cousin Creed Wesley Nelms and Frances Nelms Nall in Brookland. On visit back to NE Arkansas I used to take my mom out to Pine Log Cemetery to visit my dad's gravesite. It was hard not to notice all of the grave markers with the name Nelms etched on them. And while I had a copy of the Pine Log Cemetery Burial Map that listed all the the family, I found out about the "Find-a-Grave" website and my journey began in effort to list all of the family with as many photos that I could gather.

I was born and raised in the Lester Community, not to far from Brookland, left home after High School, worked for Delta Air Lines for 32 years, married to a Scotish Lass that I met while working in London from 1978-1980. We have one son and two granddaughters and presently reside in Monroe, GA.

If you have a chance to visit look for the Nelms Family.

Griggs Cwemetery - Wayne Co. TN
Re: the McClain's. I visited the site yesterday. All forest and tall weeds - not even a pull off - it is on a county road - blacktop. I will ck with Wayne Co. Historian and see if there are still any stones left.

Rebecca Patsy Lockridge Smith
Hello, I am a member of Ancestry and received a notice from Find-a-Grave about Patsy. I thought she died in Georgia then Allen Smith moved to Arkansas.
Did Patsy die right after they moved? Thanks for your efforts with Find-a-Grave.

I will keep your list handy and when I get back that way again, I will check with you first to get an update on all the ones you need.
We live in Texas and were on vacation visiting some relatives in Arkansas and I just happened to be at the cemetery that day so I took some pictures and checked them out on F.A.G. when I got back home and put pictures on the ones that were missing. I am glad I could be of help to you.
Happy Holidays,

RE: Brust Family
I don't remember seeing him at all BUT I have only looked at half that Cemetery. He may be there somewhere. If he has a headstone, I'll find him.
