RE: obits
You are most welcome!

I didn't have any particular reason for sponsoring. Something just struck me about his story. :)

RE: a huge thank you!!
You are welcome!

"Out of Africa" is a favorite book and movie for me. I visited Kenya and went to the home of Isak Dinesen/Karen Blixen. It was a very special journey for me. I fell in love with Kenya and its wonderful people and saw how she became enchanted with that area.

RE: Sarah Self
Sarah Self was my grt-grandmother, through my mother Velma Irene Shropshire, daughter of Opie ElmerShropshire, son of Sarah and John Ambrose Shropshire. Sarah, was the 2nd wife of John and their children were: Rosa, Oscar, Pearl, Marion, Opie, and Tessie. I knew my grandfather Opie who lived in Oklahoma. He made one trip to California, where I lived, and at that time we were able to take a pic. of Him, my Mom, myself and my first daughter. That was a wonderful visit and an opportunity for him to be with his first daughter, first granddaughter (me) and first grt granddaughter (my daughter). He died not long after that. I had only my mother's memory of her grandmother Sarah, which was not much to go on as she did not see her many times but did remember he long hair (once black, turned grey) that she brushed out, wearing it in a bun usually. As for Nathan, Sarah's father I don't have his burial location. I've just been replacing my records recently as I lost all of the originals in a home fire in 2009. I also knew Grt Uncle Oscar and his wife Rosie, we visited on their farm when I was a child, I knew she had a lot of pictures and I loved looking at them, I don't know what happened to them at her death as by that time my Aunt Lorene (my mother's sister) was looking after her, and she is also deceased. I also knew Uncle Marion, he lived in Arkansas on the "home place" and showed me a partially burnt cabin which he said was where my grandpa was born on the farm he lived on. He had to sell the property and moved to Calif. with his adopted daughter, Bobbie Ruth (my mother's youngest sister). She was adopted as she was a newborn when the mother (my grandmother) Ruth died. I don't remember ever meeting the sisters of my grandfather. As I am 80 that was a long time ago! It was always indicated that Sarah was part Native American and I've tried to make that connection with the Self line. A cousin in AR, filled me in on a lot of the Shropshire family, she has been to the grave site of Sarah and John, it was called Carpenter Cem. and is located in Ozark,AR.

RE: Dobbs
Hi Beverly, I just saw your message on my profile. I don't have any pictures of Margaret but I do have some of my great-grandfather, Charles E. Dobbs and my great-grandmother, Elsie V. Caudle.

I have yet to link my lineage to the Mayflower but I'll let you know when I do. Since it's been three months since you posted your message on my profile, were you finally able to link your great-great-grandfather to his parents?

Also, I've seen other relatives talk about one of our Snow ancestors possibly being full blooded Chicasaw or Cherokee. What all do you know about that if anything? I'm right now trying to find out if I do descend from Native American ancestors and I keep coming up empty handed. If you can help me with that, that would be great!

I look forward to hearing from you.

William Joseph Youngblood
I have a question -- What do you have for William Joseph Youngblood's parents? I have a death date for William J. Youngblood as June 21, 1889 Eureka Springs Arkansas but if this is correct, Martha Jane Loftis & William J. Youngblood must have divorced because Martha goes on and marries for the 2nd time to John Wesley Garrison in 1875. She marries a 3rd time to Wm H.D. Thomas.
Thanks, Shirley :)

William Joseph Youngblood
Hey, Cousin!! Yes, I am related through Wm Joseph Youngblood's mother Martha Jane (Loftis). She is my direct ancestor. This is my mother's side of the family - the Conners. The only picture I have of Wm & Julie is the B&W photo from Ancestry.
Thanks, Shirley :)

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.

Added by Barb J "John 3:16" on Apr 28, 2015 6:47 AM

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
