Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a native of western NC, a retired educator, book and animal lover, gardener, collector of vintage children's books, artist, photographer, and proudly addicted to genealogical research.

"If you want to understand today, you have to search yesterday." - Pearl S. Buck

Our lineage includes the following family names, listed alphabetically: Black, Blount, Brickey, Brooke, Burnet, Cable, Caffee, Carringer, Chapman, Colt, Crisp, Dennis, Dewey, Fauntleroy, Folger, Fye, Gaylord, Gordon, Hardy, Henderson, Hickman, Hoffman (or Hoffmann), Hogle, Hogue, Hoyne, Irish, Jenkins, Keyser, Knott, Kreider, Leslie, Lovin (or Loving), Lull, Lynd, MacDonald, Macy, McCallum, McClure, McCray, Mease, Messer, Mosteller, Odom, Owenby, Peale, Penland, Phelps, Quinn, Robbins, Rogers, Schnebly, Snow, Staughton, Stuman, Swem, Temple, Williamson, and Wright.

I don't mind photographs I have posted here at FAG showing up at other genealogical locations such as Ancestry, but I do ask that they be properly cited. Thank you.

Many, many thanks to my fellow Gravers who have stopped by the memorials for my parents, my husband's parents, and any other members of our family and left flowers and notes. You are wonderful people!

"A people which takes no pride in noble achievements of remote ancestors will never achieve anything to be remembered by remote descendents." _McCauley

"Photographs don't discriminate between the living and the dead. In the fragments of time and shards of light that compose them, everyone is equal. Now you see us; now you don't. It doesn't matter whether you look through a camera lens and press the shutter. It doesn't even matter whether you open your eyes or close them. The pictures are always there. And so are the people in them." - Robert Goddard, one of my favorite authors.

I just saw that you have on the page that your husband is a descendant of the Keysers. Could you email me and tell me how. It would be great to know about someone else in the family. I am from John Keyser 1730. Thank You!!!

RE: Sending my loving wishes
ah...thanks Brenda for your kind thoughts. Yes today was a rough one, still can't believe my father is not here. The loss has made life very different, I'm still not fully focused and fixed on all the changes and the emptiness. I don't suppose I will ever get over it, and that time will allow me/us to manage it better. I hope you and your family have a happy holiday, I appreciate you Brenda. Hugs and thanks

Hi! There's nobody like a relative or friend to take care of these memorials! Have transferred him to you, as we are not related nor did we even know this gentleman. We trust you will be a better person to add information, than we are!

So sweet Brenda
I try to read all the memorials and leave behind something of significance if I can. Your friend's pictures had a warmth about them and I suddenly felt close....I also appreciate you Brenda for your visits to my dad and uncle's pages- I see your name all the time and I feel like I know you as it is always touching to see a familiar name that paid their respects. I'm taking each day as it comes, some days just seem unbearable but as I read so many touching memorials it exemplifies that life goes on while we still grieve. It never leaves us. Well thank you so much Brenda for thinking of me....and my beloved father and uncle. I will keep you close...
