Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been climbing around
on my Family Tree, swinging
on it's branches, and digging
at it's roots for over
30 years, (since 1975).
I have been widowed since 1991, retired in 2005.
I LOVE Find-A-Grave. It is a wonderful
asset to the genealogy world.
If I've created a record that someone
needs to correct, update or add
information, please let me know and
I'll be glad to add your information
for you;... or if the person is your
direct family member, and you would
like to have me transfer "ownership"
of that memorial page to you, please
let me know...If that person is not
related to me and they are directly
related to you; I will be glad to
transfer their memorial to you.
However, I want to note:
Nearly all of the memorials that I
have created are connected to my
family tree and are a result of a
lot of years hard work and research.

To all the members who have been
kind enough to transfer "ownership"
of my family members to me....
Find A Grave is one of my favorite
It has given me a place that I can
remember my loved ones and honor
their memory.

If you have time, please leave a flower
for my dear husband, Roy E. Hughes.

I want to thank you for the transfer of Nathaniel Erwin to me. He is my 6th great grandfather.

I was not really asking for a transfer. Just thought you could put my info in the note section. However, I will accept it.

Double Cousins
Come to think of it. It's probably why Uncle Wood hauled butt to California. Too darn confusing and heavy on the grocery bill. A continent of separation probably did the trick.

Double Cousins
Have you ever noticed that in the Ritchie/Overcash Clans that two brothers married two sisters and created double cousins?
# 102960769 Uncle Perry was cousins with everybody on BOTH sides of his family. It's a Overcash sense of pride thing. A family legend so to speak.

just wanted to drop a note to say thanks so much for all your hard work on the Ashby family memorials in Indiana. Tracking them all down is quite a task all in itself.

RE: Adam Watson #147174534
Thank you for all your help, Loretta. I found a book online: The History of the Watson Family. My grandmother had the book, but it was lost when she died, so I am ecstatic to find it. I could not find an Adam Hyder Watson (that should be Hyder - not Hyden) in the book, but the book did clarify many of the Watson relationships.

I have been trying to link the Watsons in the Buffalo Cemetery in Pike County to those Watsons who relocated from York County, SC. I have used much of your work to correlate with the book. I really appreciate all your hard work and your willingness to consider, research,and double check the information send you so we can reunite families.

Adam Watson #147174534
If David Watson & Elizabeth Hannah [Hughes] Watson
did not have a son named Adam..., then who are this Adam's parents please?

I have Adam's parents as such, because of the info obtained from the Facets of Fannin genealogy book.

RE: Catherine [Cress] Brown #31377207
All is good. I have been posting a cemetery here in town. I took the pictures with my phone, but sometimes they won't go through to email. Back to the camera..

RE: Catherine [Cress] Brown #31377207
I am supposing you saw that I transferred the memorial and David to John Justice. David and Catherine are his gr-gr-gr-grandparents.. He has been working hard on his ancestors for a while now..
