I'm passionate about genealogy. I began researching my family history to know who I come from. Learning about their lives, beliefs, struggles, has left me deeply connected. I know my roots.

I'm 75% many, many generations Texan. My research focus is mainly on Texas. My Texas family lines are Lindley, Crisp, Bailey, Davis, Higginbotham, McMillan, Tate, and Rusk. — and Willbanks, Pulley, Gee.

I'm 25% Ohioan, courtesy of my wonderful grandmother. My Ohio family lines are Wholaver, Dunkle, Cassell, Ropes.

Genealogy, particularly DNA, research is not for the faint of heart. I uncovered what I didn't want to know. A DNA paradox. You don't know what you don't want to know until you know it. Life is forever changed.

Please do not use any photographs that I have uploaded without permission. These are pictures of my family members. I prefer that the only photos on the memorial page be the headstone, picture(s) of the deceased and/or with family (as many as you want), an obituary, and death or marriage certificate.

Obituaries must be sourced, provide the name of newspaper or funeral home, the newspaper date, and, if applicable, the online source such as or If you prefer to write your own obituary, I will include- provided by and your name.

When uploading a photo, please make sure the orientation is correct and verify that you are not uploading duplicates. You can send the picture to me if you need help.

Please do not leave biographical information that can be entered in the allowed fields, such as spouse, dates, or places, in flowers. Use the Find A Grave suggest edits button and add the information or you may send me an email.

I’m happy to transfer memorials that do not belong to my family.

Happy researching.
