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.

Hay again Dana, are you from the Anniston area ? I may have already gave you these names, if so, just throw em out. My Dad was John F Cook, his dad, Arthur E Cook, his Dad, John Jasper cook, and then our brick wall was William Cook and I have his wife as Elizabeth Smith. If any of these names ring a bell, shout back, if not....oh well.

RE: Cook
Dana, there is one William Cook that I have found. George W. Cook, who was our third great grandfather, had one son named William Edward Cook b.1832 d.1908 in Laurens County, SC. His wife was Martha Elizabeth Franks. Hope this info helps.

Cathy Smith - I live in central Alabama and will look for others for you if you will let me know.

Hi Dana,I read in your bio there you are researching the names Cook, and Wilson, here in Alabama. Just so happens my Dad was Cook, and my Mom Wilson. I have been trying to reach relatives of William Cook of Georgia. Spouse Bettie Smith, and most of the Wilson,s are out of Tennessee. Drop me a line and maybe we can compare.

RE: Re: Clara Webb #124567067
Thanks for that information. I live in Dallas, Texas but was born in Jasper, Alabama and raised in Bessemer, Alabama. I moved to Dallas in 1968. I make the trip to Bessemer about twice a year and could probably go by the Coosa county seat, Rockford to get a copy of the COD. I'm not closely related to Clara Webb (3rd great aunt) but would like to get the correct information. Do you know if I would be allowed to share the COD on Ancestry and FindAGrave?
