Find a Grave ID


I am working on family genealogy projects for both my family and my wife's family, as I gather family history information that I can pass down to my children, grandchildren, and future generations. So many of the cemeteries in my area are well-documented by other "gravers," but I do try to help add memorials and suggest corrections as I visit cemeteries along the way.

Some of my family surnames are Hill, Cook, Williamson, Carpenter, Carroll, Moore, Martin, Flemmons/Flemons/Fleming, Craig, Brunson, Corley, Lott, Bailey, Sheppard/Shepherd, Holland, Vance, Ellis, Fooks/Fookes, Taylor, Lindsey, Hunt, Redwine, Abrell, Martin, Ferguson, Pruitt, Franklin, Dixon/Dickson, Middleton, Briggs, Pate, Harper, King, Staten, Madden, Johnston, Jackson, Guess, Harris, Wofford, Causey, Duke, Moses, Ferguson, McDaniel, Flenniken, Woods, Walker, Cowan, Davidson, Waugh, Massey, Heath, Burnes, Adcock, Carr, Bennett, Watts, Richmond, Huntley, McDonald, Harbin, House, Noland, Miller, Burkhalter, Sutherland, Townsend, Partin, Brown, Fudge, Montgomery, Alexander, Long, Hall, White, Avent, Thomas, Cox, Rackley, Carter, Hare, and more.

Some of my wife's family surnames are Harman/Harmon, Simpson, Burrell/Burrel/Burell, Woods, Foster, Fowler, Cummins, Stingley, Hutchison, Payne, Holman/Holeman, Ousley/Owsley, Mabry, Frazure/Frazier, O'Briant, Sulton, Weiss/Wise, Jenkins, Darby, Hughes, Harrison, Baker, Nixon, Bailey, Gore, Bishop, Calahan, Turner, Luster, Kissinger, Graham, Calfee, Grady, Tubb, Jennings, Shepherd, Pierson, Russell, Turner, Eldridge, Dixon, Delano, Taliaferro, Campbell, Pierce, Mercer, Johnson, Norris, Kemp, Spell, Smith, Weeks, Stough, Daughtry, Reaves, Simmons, Murphy, Bates, Downen, Wilson, Barton, Oberholtzer, Ruff, Bickley, Walker, McGoffin, Wafer, Flinn, Findley, Rathbun, Bird, Carroll, Herbert, Portalis, Bobo, Potts, White, McFall, McCarty, Hamblen/Hamblin, Wilson, Watkins, and more.

It has been thoroughly interesting to see where our family lineages lead. I have been able to connect both my wife and myself to the Mayflower (Peter Browne for me; Richard Warren for her). I've found direct line connections to royalty, governors, presidents, and other historical figures. My wife is connected to several presidents (William Henry Harrison, Benjamin Harrison, and Franklin Delano Roosevelt so far), as well as Benjamin Harrison V (the father of Pres. William Henry Harrison and great-grandfather of Pres. Benjamin Harrison) who was the Governor of Virginia and one of the original signers of The Declaration of Independence. That particular line ties all the way back to the Emperor Charlemagne. I'm always excited and ready to find the next interesting connection.

If I am requesting to transfer management of one of your memorials, it's most likely because that person is my family or my wife's family and is part of our genealogy connection projects. I appreciate any help you can give to help us connect our relatives.
