|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.

Carolyn, thank you so much for all your hard work. Without you I wouldn't have all this great genealogy. Could you put me in contact with Gary Brooks? I would like to know more about my family tree.
|Mark Kleypas||Amelia Richmond Cox Deisher|
Nice updates, thank you!
|Mountain Traveler||Frances Eliz. Waddell/Oak Grove|
Thanks for pointing out the duplicate memorial. I sent them in to Find A Grave to have them merged, therefore the obit will be merged from the other memorial. I, myself, cannot merge or delete memorials unless I am the one who "created" them. A maintainer cannot delete unless they are the creator. I think Bookgoddess was the creator of one and James Brent the other one.
|Carolyn Mason||RE: Lieut. Thomas Jefferson Denton, Sr|
Lieut. Thomas J. Denton Sr., before his death was married to my great grand aunt, Ann Amelia Beal who was the mother of Thomas Jefferson Denton Jr.
|Mary Jane Haight-Eckert||Myron/Jane Boughton|
Thank so much for the correct cemetery info on Jane and Myron Boughton.
Hi..I sponsored it so you would have more room for photos. You're allowed 20 photos on a sponsored memorial. I sorry for your loss.

Thank you for accepting the updates for the memorial of Paula Meade #113136913
Interestingly, her paternal grandmother was a Whitaker from Pulaski Co., VA (a member of my family tree)
I would be pleased if you would read my Bio and visit my parents' memorials by clicking on their links.

I have looked at the above memorial and find that a name in the bio is incorrect and there are other sibling's to be added, The name of the first child should read Thomas Edward Martin. He was my father-in-law.

The information and photo were taken from a website that I did ask permission from to use the photo. If that was your photo, I apologize, as I always ask permission prior to using.
|Sandra Scott||Michael F. and Sarah W. Kern|
I wonder if I may have your permission to use your grave marker photos on my family website. Check it out at www.freienmuth-shortridge.com/shortridge/cemeteries.html. This is how I'd be using the photos and obituaries I find on Find A Grave, with 'used with permission' in the caption.
My website is being updated and these photos would not be used without your permission.
