Just trying to do my part basically. I've only recently gotten into genealogy on a more full time basis. But because I'm so terribly far from my home town and family I am required to rely on other people's generosity to help guide me. So in turn, I should do the same thing for the next person/people!
If I have a relative of yours that you'd like let me know and I will gladly transfer, assuming I'm not more closely related. I have found that some people on this website are all about numbers. That is not my forte', nor will it ever be.
I think this is a great resource and should be used as such. If you have any additions or corrections, please feel free to send them my way. I think those that have gone before us should not be forgotten. They had a purpose, just as we do.
I have a VERY large extended family. If I ask for a person you can bet your life I'm related. I'm unsure why there is animosity, when we were all brought to this site for one reason or another. We should be here to work together and in harmony. (I've had a few issues arise lately where I was insulted by a fellow contributor remarking that I "have a lot of aunts." My family is large and plentiful; and quite frankly I wouldn't have it any other way!!!! :)
**I have recently started adding additional people with whom I have no affiliation with. But they weren't listed here and I think everybody should be remembered. So I hope by adding these names, somebody somewhere will remember them and come searching for them.**
RE: Reginald Williams You are most welcome Adra. If your Grace L. Gist Williams #149596022 is the wife of Reginald A. Williams, let me know. On the back of Reginald's stone is Grace Williams. I would be happy to add her stone if this is the correct Grace.
RE: monday's Do you know if your grandma would've had any pictures of her sister Mary Josephine? I would love to have a picture of her or any of the family. I do know that you still have one cousin left on the Reynold side, Becky Wood. She is 89 years young. I still go by and see her but she dont't really know much about her family. I am making a scrapbook/ancestry book for my mom and would like to get pictures or any kind of information.
RE: monday's Josie Monday was my great grandma. my number is 706-618-2961, you can text me. I didn't know if you would have any information on the Reynolds. I do know that Josie went blind, not for sure when. I was hoping to find a picture of her somewhere. I showed my mom Lucy's picture and she said that looked just like Josie. I would like to talk more. Just text when you get time.
SHELBY MONDAY I AM RELATED TO SHELBY MONDAY THROUGH MY MOM'S SIDE OF THE FAMILY. HER DAD WAS CLAIBORN MONDAY AND HIS DAD WAS LEE W. MONDAY WHICH WAS SHELBY'S DAD. I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE A COPY OF THE PICTURE YOU HAVE POSTED ON FIND A GRAVE OR ANY OTHER PICTURES YOU MAY HAVE.
RE: Lucy Carter I'll e-mail you later but I'll write a public post first: Miss Lucy (that's what I called her back in the 1950s and 1960s when I was a child), was one of my favorites in all the world. I was a white child and she was a black school teacher in the days of segregation in the small town of Hastings, Florida. Among other issues during that time, there was a sizable discrepancy in pay between teachers in white schools compared to teachers in black schools in the State of Florida. Many of the black teachers had to work extra jobs to supplement their incomes. That's how I came to know and love Miss Lucy. After school and on Saturdays, she worked for an old Scottish widow-lady named Mrs. Vallance and her daughter who worked full-time named Mary Vallance. I loved Mrs. Vallance as a grandmother so I spent hours at her house. Miss Lucy did light cleaning and cooking for Mrs. Vallance but mostly ironing. That's when I remember our reading lessons. I would sit and talk to her while she ironed and she would go over phonics and the alphabet with me among other topics. She was a TEACHER! I later became a teacher and I modeled my teaching style and my love for children - any child - black or white, able or disabled - after Miss Lucy. I not only became a teacher but I became a professor at a university. Years later, one of her many adopted daughters was a student in one of my classes in the late 1990s. Unfortunately, I've forgotten her name but we had a wonderful time talking about Miss Lucy and her legacy. I'm sorry that your husband never met her. I am richer because I knew her.
