Bio and Links
Bio Photo Lived in the house my grandfather built for 60 years. Very interested in Memphis TN history. Enjoy learning about my relatives of the past.
Happy & proud a few were in the Civil war.

I have enjoyed visiting cemeteries, photographing graves, and adding some people to FindAGrave. If you see someone that I manage that is a relative of yours and would like me to transfer the memorial, please let me know. Now if the person is a relative of mine, I may or may not transfer, but will consider.

My photos of headstones may be used in any way to promote genealogy. Please give me credit for taking them. Photos may not be used commercially.
Please do not post images of the death certificate to memorials. That information can be entered in the biography field; and it also takes up a picture slot that could be better used for actual images of headstones and/or family photographs.

Dena Marshall
Lavnia Farris Memorial
Are you related? This is my husband's daughter's family surname. If you are not would you transfer to me to maintain. I am in the process of building this family tree.

I also agree to not post images of the death certificate to memorials. That information can be entered in the biography field, and I will do that if you transfer to me.

I just posted a memorial for Lavinia's husband Williford. He is buried in Memorial Park #180021423. If you are closely related I will transfer his memorial to you. My husband's daughter does not have the time or interest at this point.

Frank Paul Robilio
Could you please add Rosanna Robilio Baldi #42875099
as his daughter? His son Frank Paul Robilio, Jr. was married to my aunt and Mrs. Baldi is listed as both a sister to Frank Jr. and a child of Frank Sr.

Thank you in advance.

Frederica Simon
Working from my Dad's records I show that Fredrica was married to Nathan Simon and that her maiden name was Harris. She had 5 children; Nathan 1868, Henry 1869, Benjamin 1872, Rosa 1875, and Abraham 1879. Is anyone working on this line? Does Minnie belong with this family? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for your help. Barbara

Now I am logged in correctly. I reconsidered what I said to you in January. Jack was obviously born in 1933, but did not die in 1959, which was the efit you submitted. I reverted that part of your edit, as a probable mistranscription, as it doesn't agree with the photograph you so kindly posted.

Did you possibly know this family? I did not know his mother well, and would like to expand and develop the biographical information. Or you ate welcome to submit it as an edit I'd be thrilled! Thanks for the photos, indeed.

Thanks ever so much for adding the bio!
I have been searching baptism records in order to determine that middle name. No luck so far!

I am working on the cemetery where Jacob Wood's parents are buried. Am trying to piece all of the family together as I progress through the cemetery.

DO appreciate tenfold your diligence and caring.

Thanks from the bottom of my heart!

oops! re: Jack Sossaman
I am using my friend's computer. You sent your message to the Ragityman. "ragityman(at)gmail". That's me. Sorry for the confusion. I am not Eyedigg, but if you wish to send info, you can send it to either of us. I will see that the info gets added. I didn't realize that Eyedigg had logged me off, and logged herself on. Sorry.

Jack Sossaman
Thank you so much for your input. The name is not so common, so i think it very likely that I have it misspelled, as you suggest, and that this is my friend's father, whom I never met, having lived far away in 1959. Do you have a copy of the record? Could you possibly email it to me, or simpy create a memorial for him? Or maybe you have already done that. My friend is buried at Elmwood. If this Jack is also there, then they are likely father and son.

Can you transfer this record to me? It is my Grandfather, and I would like to add stuff to it. It would mean a lot to me if you did.
