I was born and raised in Memphis, Shelby Co., Tennessee, and still live in Memphis.
I am posting information on Find A Grave in order to honor and celebrate the lives of my ancestors and relatives, as well as others who have gone before me. I have even included postings and photos of tombstones of families who are not connected to me, but whose tombstones were of beauty and interest.
One of my favorite quotes regarding genealogy is the following:
"It is a revered thing to see an ancient castle not in decay. But how much more it is to behold an ancient family which has stood against the waves and weathers of time." --Francis Bacon
I am researching the following families: LOVE, WALLACE, SANFORD. AKERS, ROBERTS, GARDNER, ZEIGLER, & MARVEL. These are the family names of my eight great grandparents. I am also researching my husband's family: MAITLAND, HAMRICK (HAMBRICK), CRUM, ARCHER, LATHAM, GLENN, CATHEY, & POWELL.
Other families in my ancestry are: HARRISON, NORMENT, SHREWSBURY, DIBRELL, BURTON, NORMAN, GAGE, & LEE.
Other families in my husband's ancestry are: WYATT, BRILEY, MOORE, CHIPMAN, SKIFF, HOWLAND, SNOW, & HOPKINS.
Please feel free to visit my Public Tree at www.ancestry.com. The tree name is LOVE/MAITLAND FAMILY TREE.
Also, please feel free to use any of the photos that I have added to Find A Grave in any way you see fit. It is my wish to help others in their quest for more information on ancestors and relatives and to help them share that information wherever they wish. I do not feel that I 'own' the photos. I would not have placed them on the internet if I felt that way.
