I've been researching my family for about 25 years and love to visit cemeteries to experience the differences in their styles and overall *feel*. Some are vibrant, others peaceful and tranquil. A few feel sad, or worse. All are interesting.

I have an extensive, public family tree on Ancestry named Arkansas Generations. I research all of my own lines, as well as my children's, my husband and more. I'm happy to share all information I have.

Other researchers are welcome to use pictures I've posted for their private research, with my blessings. Credit is appreciated.

I'm particularly interested in families in the Ouachita Mountains in Arkansas. I also study the Salem witch trials. My aunt was Mary Ayer Parker who was convicted and hanged. Aunts of my husband and my former husband were Rebecca Towne Nurse and Mary Towne Easty who were convicted and hanged. We are related to multiple others who were accused and did the accusing.

I research hundreds of surnames, but am always looking for information on these:

Anderson (SC, TN, AR)
Ayers (MA, NJ, SC, TN, AR)
Denton (SC, AL, MS, AR)
Edwards (NC, GA, AR)
Lightfoot (NC, KY, AR)
Robinson (GA, AR)
Wilson (NC, SC, AL, AR)
Young (TN, AR)
