Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am researching my family surnames on my Father's side (Galloway/Carter/Cook/Oliver (SC/AL/GA) and my Mother's side, Traffenstead/Traffanstedt/Garrett, Freeman (AL/GA/TN/SC) Hartsfield/Cross/Wilson/Moore (AR). I've been interested in geneaology since August 2006 when I started looking for my Mother's biological family whom I found within 2 weeks. From my Mother's side, I am Catawba Indian "People Of The River", German, and British. I'm still working on my Father's side.

Please take a moment and visit my family. Thank you so much.

This dear sweet woman has been part of our family since I was a little girl. She will never be forgotten. Love you Ms. Frances.

If I have offended anyone, please let me know and I will remove the memorial of your loved one. If you aren't a part of Find A Grave, you can still contact me through the edit tab of the memorial. I don't mean to offend anyone. All memorials are created out of respect. The purpose of me adding names is because I believe that people should never be forgotten, and also I like to help people who are searching for their ancestors. I am so thankful for Find A Grave because not only have I found many of my ancestors, I have found many related family members alive.

I will be happy to transfer memorials that are a part of your family with the exception of the ones of my family within Find A Grave's 4 generations guidelines. Any requests outside the 4 generations will be considered on an individual basis. You MUST state the relationship with your ID number. All RUDE requests will be ignored!

Duplicates - These are errors, and not created on purpose. I search before I create a memorial and after every time. Please bring any errors or duplicates to my attention so I can correct them. If I have created a memorial and you create a duplicate, do not send me a message that the one I created is a dupe and for me to delete. I will not delete any memorials if you created a dupe. Don't create a dupe memorial just because you're related. If you are family, kindly ask for a transfer or you can add photos and send me information to be added and I'll be glad to add it. If you are within the 4 generations, please ask for a transfer. Please read the FAQ's for this site on creating memorials.

Feel free to use my photos 📷 as long as you give me credit and do not make any money off them.

RE: Litha S White Champion
27 May 2016
I hope I have previously answered you!? If not, No I don't know anything about Litha S. White's previous husband. She & Elver Champion didn't marry until 1943, have you tried finding her in the 1930 or 1940 census? Suspect she probably lived close by in Tallapoosa Co., AL. Sorry, If I haven't answered before or maybe you have double info now. Have fun with genie. Bobbye Varner

RE: Litha S White Champion
Hello, No, I know nothing about her 1st husband, Alvie White? Noticed you have put an Alvie White on Find A Grave, is he the one? If you find out, please let me know as well if you find her maiden name. Would appreciate being informed. Sorry, I can't help you with other info. Bobbye Varner

Westbrook error
Under Elizabeth Ann Westbrook Neese, Alex City AL
you have included info: Siblings:
William Hardy Westbrook (1926 - 1992)*
Elizabeth Ann Westbrook Neese (1934 - 2011)
Garrett Ewell Westbrook (1940 - 1940)**
Gary Newell Westbrook (1940 - 1940)**

*Calculated relationship

The twins are not related to either William or Elizabeth. Elizabeth moved to Alex City after 1952 & her mother Lillian moved in with her in
about 1975. I do not know who the twins belong to. Can you remove them? Thanks

Duplicate cemetery
I talked to the wonderful staff at Armour's Funeral Home and confirmed with them that Elam II
Is actually New Elam Cemetery No. 2, in Coosa County, Alabama.
I've e requested a cemetery merge and will delete my duplicate memorial once that's complete. I was unable to fulfill your othe photo requests in the cemetery when I looked--I suspect the markers haven't been placed yet.
