Bio

When my dad died in 2016, I really got started on this wild genealogy trip. Mom died in 1977 when I was just 13 years old and I knew even less about her family. Find A Grave.com has been an important part of figuring out my extended family tree.

Dad's family is from the Mississippi Delta. Family names are Green-Dickey, Green-Jacks, and Dickey-Taylor. Mom's family is from the Pee Dee region of South Carolina. Her family names are Manship-Tart, Manship-Gibson, and Tart-Bethea.

Part of the reason that I go graving is to pay back into the Find A Grave database, but in truth I have frequently wandered through cemeteries especially small country cemeteries that I spot while on day trips from my home or on longer road trips across the country. Now my wandering is more systemic as I look for people to memorialize in Find A Grave.

Current ongoing projects:

• Rosewood Cemetery in Humble, Texas -- Nov 2021 to Present -- Mowing the rows in Rosewood Cemetery in Humble, Texas. Rosewood has a grave for the mother of a friend of a friend. She was murdered in 1974 and I've not found her grave yet nor I have I figured out any of her family connections.

• Scott County, Missouri – Nov 2021 to Present – Documenting African American burials in Scott County, Missouri. Scott County is a place I recently visited when I stopped in Sikeston, Missouri for the night on a road trip. There was a small African American cemetery in Sikeston that had no grave site photos recorded in Find A Grave. I spent a couple of hours photographing about half the cemetery, and now I've been scouring the Scott County death certificates in Ancestry dot Com for all the other African American burials I can find.
