It seems that I've always been interested in genealogy. I remember my dad, Joe Lasater, answering all my questions like "who used to live there?" and "how are they related to each other?", about the Pea Ridge, Arkansas and Benton County area. His memory, up until the last 2 to 3 years of his 92 years he lived, was as sharp as it could be. (A lot sharper than mine has been, or ever will be.) For years we would drive his old truck, mostly on Sunday afternoons, and go to the local "graveyards" and he would reminisce about the people he had known who were buried there. Over 20 yrs ago, I persuaded both of my parents to go with me to mid Tennessee to do more researching for both sides of their families. One discovery was the old homeplace and the gravestones of my dad's maternal grandfather's grandparents'. All were on private land, and only a handful of local folks remembered where it was....I've enjoyed this website for several years, but am new to the memorial area...Since both my parents have passed on, I've found that doing this is good therapy......The family names I'm researching are:
Lasater, Murphy, Cable, Deason, Mount, Dean/Deans, Bonham, Baker, Ford, Arnold, Walker, Hammick, Patterson, Martin, just to name a few.
If I can help anyone else, please contact me.
