RE: Sarah Self
Hello, and thank you for your message. I don't have the burial information for Nathan Self or his wife Sarah. Yes, I have a Self connection, Nathan is my 2nd grt grandfather on my mother's side. His daughter Sarah Angeline Self was my 1st grt grandmother, she married John Ambrose Shropshire, their son: Opie Elmer Shropshire was my grandfather. I didn't know any of them except my grandfather Opie. As I live in California I've not been able to visit the cemetery where Sarah Angeline (Self) Shropshire and John Ambrose Shropshire are buried, the Carpenter Family Cem., but I understand it has been cleaned up and a marker placed for Sarah by the Carpenter family members, which I really appreciate. I would like o learn more about Nathan and Sarah.

RE: Update on Thomas Family
Sorry I could not access your e-mail. Andrew & Vincent were brothers and they married spiveys sisters Andrew married the younger one and vincent married the older one. Their mother was Elizabeth sometimes called "Betsey" who came with the boys and girls to Arkansas. Records show she married John Ira Wilson in Kentucky and I have copy of license. They had another son after andrew & Vincent. His name was Arnold. There is about 30 or so folks buried on Thomas creek and Elizabth and Arnold are buried down there. Also there is a marker for John Ira but don't know if he is buried there because in 1850 Kentucky census she reported being a widow. My father always said he didn't have cousins but double cousins. Three weeks ago I went to Patterson Springs declaration and met a lot of kinfolks and gained more history. I have traced thomas' back to Wales. My email address:

Hi Bev,
You've pulled at my heart strings. I loved visiting your Mommie & Daddys memorial page. Take you for letting me place a flower at their memorial page.

Hi Bev,
It's an honor to visit your parents. Don't feel you have to thank everyone. It's almost impossible to do that anyway. I just leave a "thank you" message on my bio page. Hope you get your computer fixed soon. Take care.

I also know how you feel. I lost my Mom on May 10th of last year. I miss her so much. May God give you comfort and peace.

Mom to angels Bo and Chris
God bless, keep and comfort you!
I share the way you feel about your Mom... only that is how I feel about my dad! He was out of my life here on Earth for 8 years due to divorce... but he and I met again as adults! He was with me in the most horrible days of my life... 3 open heart surgeries in less than a year... Even though he had arthritis so bad he could barely walk... he insisted on bringing me food to the hospital, as the doctors said that I wouldn't eat anything. He had chopped the BBQ HE cooked to make me sandwiches... he went to the store to bring me special drinks... whatever he could do ..he did... HE drove me home from the hospital, even though it was over a 6 hour drive there and back for him! He was amazing.... Just like your mom was... I miss him as much as you miss her! ONE DAY in God's time... we will all be together again!!!! Hugs, Cile

That is really a coincidence that you got an email with the animated coffee cup. I adore it and so would Gina.

8 Yr Unsolved Murder - Blake Dickus age 10
Hello Bev,
Thank you for stopping by to leave a token for my Grandson, Blake Dickus!

I appreciate it that you read the Memorial about Blake's very short lived life. Blake Dickus was my daughter's ONLY child and the brutal murder has devastated her. His death has taken a toll on our entire family - he had many devoted Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles, and Cousins. This Double Homicide - (STEP-Mom) Chynna & Blake Dickus, is now 8 Years UNsolved! It doesn't seem possible that anything this horrific could go that long without being solved.

The deck of playing cards that you inquired about (I have pictured on Blake's Memorial) is one example of "getting the word out" to the public. The Dept. of Corrections gives these decks of cards to each prisoner (here in Indiana) that is locked up in jail for them to pass their time. It also starts them talking if they would know any details. Each card features an unsolved murder or missing person. We also have a REWARD for Information to solve the crime up to $25,000.00. Every little bit we can do to keep this crime in the public's eye helps - one day someone will do the right thing and make that important call!

Thank you for your Prayers for the crimes to be solved, as they are much needed and DO GET ANSWERED!
I hope you have a marvelous Christmas holiday season!

A Southern Snow
From a Snow cousin

On this Boxing Day - Dec. 26 - I found your name and contributions completely by chance (or fate)... I saw that you say you descend from Solomon SNOW from NC and TN. Well, so do I, so we must be cousins somewhere on the great World Wide Tree... My pedigree is Solomon's son Stephen Coe Snow and his son Houston Calvin Snow and his son Walter Carroll Snow and his son, my Dad, Walter A. Snow, Sr.

I saw you mentioned the Mayflower connection too - yes, we DO descend from a Mayflower passanger but it was not a Snow - man, rather his wife, Constance Hopkins Snow - who married Nicholas Snow, who arrived in Plymouth on the Anne in 1623. Want to see my Family tree ? It is open and free at - I am "Snow-2128" - The exact URL is:

Are you a Wikitree member ? If not, it's free and easy to join. I love those two aspects of it and also that it is a cooperative Tree where we all work together to see how we relate on the World Wide Family Tree.

Right now I am with my wife's family in France - she is French - so must be brief. I will NOT have Internet for a week as we are up in the Alps and the chalet does not "do Internet" as they want a "rural atmosphere" - BUT I will see emails again about January 5 and so I hope to hear from you.

Must run now. Happy New Year 2015, dear cousin!
