Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing genealogy for 40 years or more, started out with my mother and looking in the Seattle Libraries for information on my mother's family. My father knew mostly about his Morse family, where they came from and how they got to the USA. My mother on the other hand didn't know much except for the maiden names of her mother's people. Needless to say it has been a great journey and adventure in not only the history of both sides but a great pleasure in finding out where our people are from and where their final resting places are. I never would have found out or had been able to see where they are had it not of been for other's kindness and love for the same reasoning of being able to find a loved one lost so many years before. Credit is due to others who have helped in this journey, thanks to all of you who have added a picture or information, very much appreciated!

RE: Pheobe French/Allye
I have the records from 1994. There is only one French, William, 1791-1869 but I also have the DAR records which show no marker. What was the other name you were looking for???

I see the other is gone. It had a pic of her marker. I notified both parties.

RE: Elijah and David Fortson
Hi Melody,

I wish that I could help you more with your search but, I am not familiar with the Fortson family in LA. I did find this info but I presume that you probably already have this.

Mary J. Forston
Born 1837 in Green Co., AL
Died Nov 8, 1928 in Shreveport, Caddo Ph., LA.
Father: Berry Hill
Mother: Elizabeth Rich
Spouse: M. J. Fortson

Good Luck!

Warm regards,

Melody, I will have to confess, I didn't know there was a request for the photo. I went to take photos of the Zeiglers, Pullens, Finchers, Haynes, etc that were connected to one of my family trees. Are you related to any of the Zeiglers, Edwards or Haynes family? Pat

Anne Powers McMullen Memorial# 10673591
Hello. I just read your suggested edits for this memorial. I can assume that Sumner is her death location because she lived there in the 1930 census. Do you have information that proves she died in Sumner? As for the suggested birth location, I cannot change what I have unless you can prove to me Glasgow, Scotland. All census records seem to indicate that she was born in Georgia and parents born in Carolinas.

RE: Eudora Powell
I keep hoping the gate will be open to the pasture where the Powell Cemetery is so I can get in there but they keep it locked up. I drive by there several times a week hoping. I will keep trying. I have also tried to get into the All Saints Cemetery but it is also locked tight. That place is surrounded by woods so if I were to jump the fence there is no telling how far I would have to walk to find the cemetery. It can't be seen from the road. I am actually headed that way today and will drive by to look again.
