Ever since I was twelve years old I have loved genealogy. I joined this site so I can create and find memorial sites for my close and distant relatives.
My background has been in newspapers, radio, and television; all forms of advertising; and telecommunications. Besides media jobs, I've owned several businesses too.
I am looking for the names of Alexander from Ohio and Canada, Conley (Connelly, Connely), Coyle, Fisher, Hackworth, Hahn, Hine, McDermott, and Robe. Most of my immediate family are from Ohio and Kentucky but they can also be found in New York, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Virginia, North Carolina and South Carolina.
My daughter is also interested in information about her father's family. His family is from Texas, Oklahoma, Indiana, Tennessee, Pennsylvania, North Carolina and South Carolina, and includes the names of Bryant, Dunlap, Gossett, Livermon, Peppers, Redding, Sexton, and Thornburg. Any information you can provide us is very much appreciated. Please send messages to my member page.
We offer this Irish blessing as comfort to you and your families:
Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there ..... I do not sleep.
I am the thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you waken in the morning's hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush
of gentle birds in circling flight,
I am the soft star that shines at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there ..... I did not die.
