Bio and Links
Bio Photo I enjoy the outdoors and ancestry research. It was such a surprise to learn that I had several great great grandparents buried on the shores of the very lake I traveled in my kayak. My third great grandfather even farmed what is now the bottom of the lake I traverse.

Find A Grave has been like that, too. A very pleasant surprise. Who would have guessed that chasing after headstones could be so exciting?

My husband has joined me in the search for our ancestors. We enjoy posting biographies, posting pictures and linking families to each other.

Thanks to the many contributors who do such a great job on Find A Grave!

And, thank you, Lord, for all your tender mercies!

RE: Juliet Burkholder FAG 154352743
Yes, am even deleting her virtual site as Brenda Carringer Black descended from William Abraham Jenkins stated, "Juliette died in 1840 after delivering their last child, Isaac. Prior to his birth, Juliette had given birth to two daughters (whose identities are unknown to me), John, Philip, Elizabeth, Abraham, ( my paternal Great(2)Grandfather) and Patrick."
The indication was my ancestor, James Morgan, was not part of what was passed down to her. Both marriage records for Juliet say Jonis and Jones, Jr, so it is too confusing to leave in place.
Thanks for passing this along.

Thank you for the information. I linked Eula to her parents. I transferred her memorial to you and maybe you can add some additional information.

RE: Parents of Lucy Law Arrington
Since you posted in her bio who her adoptive parents were, couldn't you link them up? I mean when parents adopt, they become the official parents.
