Bio Photo ***A special thank you and hug goes to all the sweet people who have left tokens for my beloved daughter, Lauren Elizabeth Hafford. It means so much to me. Reading the messages and seeing the pretty tokens helps brighten my day when I've been feeling sad.***

Find A Grave is a wonderful resource, and I am so happy to have "found" this website. I have been doing family history research on and off since 1970. It is time consuming, as well as a labor of love, and extremely rewarding. Now that I have retired, I am able to spend more time on my favorite hobby.

I am researching these names (ancestors and descendants):
In TN and NC: Sharp/Sharpe, Cooper, Welch, Hatmaker, Duke, Hafford, Tinsley, Tucker, Farbridge, Burton, Mosier, Jarnagan/Jarnagon/possibly Jernigan.

In VA and GA: Watson, Halburt, Burdyne.

In Glamorgan, Wales, UK: Greenberry or Green Berry Hill.

In Kent, UK: John Stevens.

In UK: Thomas Fay/Faye; Margaret Maiter/Maher/Maier, Ellen Lynch, David Lynch, Bolling.

In NY: William Henry Stevens & Maggie/Mary/Mae Fay(e).

In Arkansas: Garrett, Wilson, Calhoun, Farbridge, Hamilton, Hafford.

In VA, GA & FL: Hill, Callahan, Cain, Bradford, Power, Sims, Caraway/Carraway/Cariway, Grisham/Gresham/Grissom.

In VA and OH: Moon.

In GA, AL, FL, TX and OK: Zellner.

I manage the memorial sites for several family members and ancestors, as well as some very dear family friends.

A special place in my heart is held for the FAG memorial # 26414618, that of my beloved daughter, Lauren Elizabeth Hafford .
If you visit her memorial, please leave a remembrance so I will know you have visited.

Here is a wonderful quote by a man I had the pleasure of hearing in person when I was a university student many moons ago: "I know for certain that we never lose the people we love, even to death. They continue to participate in every act, thought and decision we make. Their love leaves an indelible imprint in our memories. We find comfort in knowing that our lives have been enriched by having shared their love." Leo F. Buscaglia

I love my FAG friends, and have met some wonderful people associated with this website. I enjoy getting emails from fellow FAG members and visitors. You may want to leave a token at a memorial created in tribute to Fallen Gravers. These people have passed on, but were a part of our group when they were living.

One of my favorite things to do is leave flowers for infants, children or young adults who have been taken from us too soon. It makes me feel sad when I see a memorial that has been created and no one has left a flower for that person. I feel everyone should have a flower at their memorial site to show that someone remembers them.

If you see a memorial for one of your family members that I have created, please let me know how you are related to that person. I will happily transfer them to you, unless they are also a relative of mine. I feel the memorials should be with loved ones (family) whenever possible. Please use the Edit tab on the memorial for that relative to request a transfer.
I take great care with the memorials I create, and I like to include as much information as I have available. If you have a picture, information to add, or a correction, please let me know via the Edit tab. (Thanks.) I feel the memorials are not only a lasting tribute to the person, but they are a very valuale resource for fellow genealogists and family historians.

Caraway family
Hi Gwen, I found your grandmother's site on Findagrave. I am a direct descendant of John Caraway, 1, 2, and 3.
My great,grandfather was Elijah C. Caraway, my grandfather was Robert Franklin Caraway, my father was R.F.Caraway all of Wise County , Decatur, Texas.
Your grandmother looks so much like one of my father's sisters Etta Caraway Waits.
Thank you for posting Audrey . I am so glad to have found it. Yes, there was a lot of changes down through the years about the spelling of Caraway. Originally it had 2 'r"s and then when they came to Texas they dropped one of the "r"s.
