I began my interest in genealogy in 2008 when three genealogists entrusted their many hours of research on the Dove family tree to me. Adding the names of my ancestors and my relatives to Find A Grave is my personal way of honoring their lives and securing each family member their rightful place in the annals of history until their graves are finally opened by the Almighty God who gave them life. Surely on that blessed day, the "Doves" shall again stand together as one family before our God and His Son, Jesus Christ, who came in the flesh and redeemed us, so that we should not taste death no more! To Him, be the Praise and Glory, Forever!
My Dove family immigrated to America in 1764 from Germany. You will find my family well documented on ancestry.com. There are now well over one hundred descendants of Thomas Dove who have have taken the ancestry DNA test. If you are a descendant of Thomas Dove, we invite you to take the ancestry DNA test and join us in our on going efforts to learn more about our Dove Family.
All of the memorials I have added to Find A Grave are somehow related to my family. If you happen to be related to me, I would love to hear from you.
