Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am 66 years old and love doing family research. I live in Alvin, TX and love to fish. I have 3 little dogs that I adore. I believe in God and Country and the men & women who defend it.

I want everything to be as correct as I can make it. I do this out of respect for them and who they were. As I am also researching family I try to have the same consideration for others as I expect from them. Even with my own family if someone see's something they think is wrong I'd like to know it and then I may or may not change it according to what I have and what I know. I've learned not even gov documents are always correct nor name spellings on them. So good thing I like fishing because in some cases it takes a lot of it to find out anything or another family member in this up to their necks with lots of resources. I have two of those in my family.... God Bless all those dedicated to obtaining correct information and supporting and working together on sites like Find A Grave and Ancestry.

One thing that bothers me is people who add photo's of stones at such an angle or distance that it can not be read or with flowers obstructing the information on the stone. To me if the stone can't be read DON'T PUT IT ON THE MEMORIAL. The stone has important information on it that we need as verification of information. To me take flowers off and get over the stone and close enough to be able to read it in the photo. The stone is the most important thing, not the flowers on it.

Thanks for the correction of William's birth date. I had the correct date in my records--just didn't hit the right key!

re: photograph of Houston /ycock
I don't know if you have posted this photograph for someone else, or if it is from your family. Either way, I am interested in finding out if you or someone else has additional photographs of him or other relatives. He is my great-great grandfather.

You're very welcome! That does make a lot more sense. I don't think I've come across that census yet, but grandma has told me she was living with Aunt Carrie. When I can get to those pictures I will add them to her memorial. Thanks Roanna!

Sippie Ann
Hi Roanna! I can send over a copy of Sippie's death certificate if it helps? It lists the cemetery and has their son Harrison as the informant. Your son-in-law may like to speak with my grandmother as well, she is Carter & Sippie's oldest child and one of only two surviving. Sippie married a man with the last name of Douglass, then a man by the name of Tommie Brown, she outlived all three of her husbands.

Joshaway & Sippie Ann
Roanna, I finally figured it all out. The Sippie listed as Joshaway's wife is not the correct Sippie. Sippie Goins outlived him by about 30 years. She was remarried twice. I spoke with my grandmother who told me Sippie (her grandmother) is buried in Boydston Cemetery in Tiftonia, TN. So I tracked down her memorial: #5963283. I thought you may want to update the spouse part on Joshaway's memorial. Also, in regards to your notes on his page, I think that his name may have originally been Joshaway, as many other members of his family with the same name had the same spelling. I just wanted to say thank you for all the work you've done on my family pages.
