|Bio and Links|
I have been a genealogist for 27 years. I was born in Kansas and grew up in Kansas until I was a sophomore in high school. We then moved to Des Moines, Iowa where I finished high school. I have lived all over the country and traveled in 43 states. I love the history of our country and studying my families along with their friends and neighbors. I keep a huge database of families because I track them as they travel westward. I have helped many people find their ancestors because I have a gift at tracking families, so I want to share that with others. I don't always find everyone, but my percentage rate is at least 95% of the time. They call me the sleuth!! One of my friends once told me "ya can't hide from you!"|
My father was adopted in 1920 and I found our biological family in 1992 when he was 72 years old. I am willing to help adoptees try to find their families, especially the stolen children of Georgia Tann of the Tennessee Children's Home Society in Memphis, Tennessee.
I recently completed research for Hewitt Clarke's new book, "Money and Blood" and am currently doing research for another new book he's going to publish. The story features a section on the family of Filmore Johnson and his wife, Betty Levy and the self made million, Robert Johnson who started BET television, whom is a descendant of Filmore Johnson.
My paternal families
Due to people stealing my tombstone photos without permission and not so much as documentation and putting them on ancestry, I will not grant permission to use any of them. Only one Example arabianvoice Karen Sherrill Sanders, who refuses to take them down after numerous requests.

Dear Carolyn Whitaker,
I am a descendant of Joseph Whitaker and Obedience Perdue through their eldest son, James. Very little information on their son Thomas. Please email me at and I want to thank you for your contribution to Find-a-Grave.

You posted a memorial for Madge T. Smith. I was wondering if her husband's grave was nearby? I suspect that William H. Smith born in 1897 is her husband, but I am unable to verify. Thanks!

Many thanks for the information. Please check my additions and let me know if I need to add more.
Pay it Forward,

Thank you for the offer to transfer the memorial page, but it's not necessary. Only related by marriage.
I have been looking for a picture of my Grandfather and Grandmother John Sherman Gilliland and Malvina (Vinie) Valentine Gilliland but have not had any luck my email is Winston_gregg@yahoo.com.
|B Long||RE: Mary Grainger Blount|
Thanks for the alert! I had given her permission to use my Find A Grave photos. I did not know she was going to use them on duplicated memorials. Maybe she should contact Find A Grave about the inactive member not updating.
