Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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.

If you use any of my data all I asked is that you give me credit for my work.

Julia Yeager Cummins, Memorial# 125470160, is my wife's 2g grandfather. Would you consider transferring her memorial to me?
Thank you,

I post an article to Sarahs memorial from August 19, 1880. It's about her being attacked by "an old sow". As always, I will remove if you want.

Sgt Arthur Kinnett Glaze
Hello, I am a decedent of this person through Sarah Ann Glaze. I notice there is no photo of his gravestone. I live about 14 miles from this cemetery and would be happy to find the grave and take the photo. I am working on my ancestry through and have much of it but need to verify it. I hope to hear from you, Thanks, Michael Kinner

I fulfilled your photo request, but the photo posted sideways. I removed it, and I'm trying to get it posted correctly. Any idea why this would happen? Any known issues with posting photos on here?

Essie or Flessie Bowman
I am adding some information and pictures for Oakwood Cemetery in Hickory. I see your name on several of the Bowman entries. I have a picture of a headstone for a Flessie or Essie Bowman who may have been a spouse for Wade Bowman. Does that ring a bell in your family research? I haven't added the picture yet. I wanted to get the name correct.

Carolyn -

The reason I am asking about Isaac White is just this reason: I am working on a project to protect the integrity of the actual participants of the Battle of King's Mountain. One person in particular, Trish Carden, has done a great disservice to history in general by posting online her version of the Roster of the participants. She, however, has taken great liberties with reality. She has included many soldiers who fought with Sevier and Shelby in other battles and not specifically the Battle of King's Mountain.

I am trying to identify the correct parties.

Thank you for your help.
