Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been researching my family history since I was in junior high school, and was very fortunate to have access to a lot of family records. As a child I was extremely scared of cemeteries, but as I grew in to my teenage years and became more intensely involved in my research, I found myself tromping through a lot of cemeteries. Unfortunately, I found so many monuments that were barely legible, and thought then I should try to transcribe as many as possible so that others could find their family members too. Though I have been researching for over 30 years now, I am fortunate that I still find new cousins quite regularly. I hope that some of my postings will help others to find their relatives.

I want to thank my family who have helped me transcribe in the early days, then assist with photos in more recent years. Not many spouses and/or siblings are willing to go to a cemetery on a freezing cold Thanksgiving day to help transcribe and/or take pictures but mine do.

If you find anything that needs to be corrected, please let me know, and we will resolve this together. If you are a family member of one I have transcribed, and I am not, I will be happy to transfer your family member to you. I believe family members should be able to take care of their family memorials here, just as if you were taking care of the actual cemetery regardless of how closely you are related.

If you are a "cousin" I would love to hear from you and exchange information. Some of my direct family surnames are: Borders, Botner, Harman/Harmon, Houchin, Jackson, Pearman, Peery, Short, Smith, Taylor, and Thorne on my father's side and Benke, Clark, Denisiuk and Piper on my mother's side. And my husband's side include Matuse, Privette, Davis, and Boykin.

And lastly, if you would like to copy any pictures, please let me know, and if you add it to a family tree, please note it came from me. I have seen many of my photos on with no mention that the photo was mine. Thanks.

Ben Harper
After going through my family info, I found that Ben and Fred each had a daughter named Evelyn, both born in 1911. Ben's daughter was Evelyn Lyndoll Harper and Fred's daughter was Evelyn Mae Harper. I am the granddaughter of Ben and Fred's sister, Lyndoll P. Harper Hinman.

Levi Jackson
You have the memorial for Susan Jackson, wife Levi Jackson, in Spangler Cemetery, my great grandmother & grandfather. Could you please add the maiden name of his wife Susan, which was Humphreys? I often see it with an "s" at the end. When she passed (wish date had been added), he married her sister Emiline Humphreys, whose stone is next to his. Thanks so much for any & all help. I know that we exchanged emails some time back. I hope there is not some info we were supposed to send to you or question we should have answered.

Hi Cindy, The bio info you have for Daniel Pearman is backwards. Daniel & Vonna Mayfield were married in 1968 not sure what month but sure on the year. Jamie is the son of Daniel & Vonna. Please correct.

Thank You,
