Bio and Links

I am 71 years old. At the age of 52 I became interested in family history because of my husband's daughter. She wanted some information about her family. Others had promised information but did not come thru with it so I told her I would help her. It was so much fun I have continued with my research. I am always happy to help in the search and photo taking of a monument. I have been helped many times in the past and hope to help others in the future. One outstanding person in Camden, Missouri, Janice Pennington, who is now my dear friend, is the main reason I became interested in Find A Grave. Through Genforum I requested one picture of a monument in a cemetery fairly close to her area. She saw my request, contacted me and told me she would get the picture for me. Not only did she get that picture but she sent me over 50 other pictures of my ancestors graves in the same cemetery. Because of her and also her husband Larry, I wanted to help others find graves of their families and take photo's of the headstones. That is when I found Find A Grave. Talk about getting your prayers answered, I did. Another lady, Roberta, who lives in Indiana, went to Kentucky and took over 70 pictures for me at 4 different cemeteries of my ancestors graves. The gratitude I have for these people makes me want to grab every photo request I can to help others.
If I can make a correction or add information to a memorial page, please let me know. If you would like to have one of my memorial pages transferred to you, (if they are not a member of my family), please let me know and I will do it. Please go thru the proper channels for any changes or transfers of a memorial page.

RE: Jamie Lee Dupuy's memorial on FAG
The name Nachtigall was misspelled on the
headstone. Thanks for adding the correct selling.

RE: Morris Scott McKenzie #53627143
You're welcome, Joyce. Morris Scott's dad, Gregg McKenzie, was my high school Biology teacher & his mother was my 8th grade history teacher. Gregg actually had us do a family tree in his class. So I guess he is responsible, as well as my maternal grandmother, for my interest in genealogy & preserving our heritage. It wasn't until about 8 years ago that I renewed my interest in genealogy. What is ironic is that recently I have discovered that through my paternal grandmother, that I am a 4th cousin to Morris Scott on his maternal side. And again via my P. grandmother, I'm related to Morris Scott on his paternal side by marriage of 2nd cousins 2x removed. Gregg's youngest daughter & I were in the same grade & have recently renewed our friendship. We both said that her dad, Gregg, would have loved the fact that we are related! Thanks again for all of your hard work!

Morris Scott McKenzie #53627143
Hello Joyce,

I wanted to give you an edit for Morris Scott McKenzie #53627143 at East Hills Cemetery in Fort Stockton. You have Barbara Fox McKenzie as his mother. This information is incorrect. His parents are Richard Gregg McKenzie #116899566 (East Hill) & Lou Ann Lowry McKenzie (living). Thanks, Dina

RE: Minerva Pounds Kellar # 35712698
Thank you for answering so quickly Joyce. I am trying to locate her parents graves, I found her brother Rev Isom Johnson Pounds #52380645. He married a Sarah Matilda Keller which I am guessing is a Kellar also.

The picture is fine this size. Thank you. I looked at my tree again and she is my 5th great Grandfathers 1/2 sister. So confusing sometimes. Specially when there are multiple spouses.

Minerva Pounds Kellar # 35712698
Hello Joyce,

I was working on my tree and came across my 5th Great Aunt Minerva Caroline Pounds Kellar I wanted to ask for your permission to add your pictures of her to my Ancestry tree And also to see if you annd I are related I kinda assume so, since you have her picture.

Thank you, Sherry
