Bio

Originally from northern Illinois I'm stuck in the Southern part of the state - hopefully it's a temporary sitaution because it's definitely not my idea of a great place to live.

I've mainly been focusing on the Williams/Earl/ Wrenfrow/Bellah families of North-eastern Arkansas. The Williams have been my main focus lately and have been able to follow them from Alabama/Tennessee to Johnson County, Illinois to Oregon County, Missouri to Mammoth Spring, Arkansas. Several members also kept moving west and have been found in Kansas, New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado and California.


On my husband's side - it would be Swan, Shadowens, Jones, Edwards, Motsinger & Tanner. Most came from Tennessee and seem to have settled in southeast Williamson County and stayed in the area.

I have already had the great displeasure of running into someone who refused to transfer my great-grandfather over although she had no family connection and had typed in every person in the cemetery while sitting two states away. I finally retyped his memorial so his information would be complete, correct and family linked. I feel that Find A Grave should be used for family to honor their loved ones and keep memorials so that they are not forgotten - not to see how many names I can add. For that reason I do not add anyone that does not have a family relationship.
