Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been researching my family lines since 1995. My first mentor, and someone to whom I am much indebted, was the late Col. Ed Schott. Ed, a volunteer at the National Archives in Washington DC, was a certified professional genealogist. He took a keen interest in helping me develop my research skills. He introduced me to LCol. Patrick G Wardell, author of several Virginia genealogy research books. In the days before internet genealogy, both Ed and Pat provided much guidance and assistance in helping me find and document many of my ancestral lines. Both stressed that just because some hereditary society had approved a family tree it did NOT mean that tree accurately reflected an accounting of that family line. From 1995-1998 I consulted Loyd Bockstruck, the noted genealogist from Dallas, Texas, about newly found documents pertaining to the Hastings aka Hasten/Haisten families from Southside, Virginia.
Except for two (Zerr & Winkler), all my ancestral lines were in America by early 1700's. Most were in Virginia several years before the Pilgrims' landing on a rock at Plymouth, Massachusetts.

Memorial #40076329, M. Edger Meadows and Memorial #49052928, Marvin Edward Meadows are not duplicates. They are 2 different people. They were born 12 years apart.

Hi Ruth,
I was wondering if you could transfer maintenance of 34228189 to me. She is my grandmother and also her husband, my grandfather Rufus Valentine "Vol" Hargrove.
Thank you ever so much!

Obit for Florence Adams
The obit you sent me for "Florence Adams" buried in Sandlin Cemetery....see Find A Grave#22297514.
This obit belongs to that lady not the one buried in Athens City Cemetery.

Ruth, I had already transferred her memorial to you before I notices that you wanted me to approve linking her to her parents and husbands.
I don't want to cause a "double link" so I will refuse your request and you can then make the connections.

THANK YOU! I sent you a long email & it got kicked back. I just re-sent it. Probably TMI, just the same. Both updates have been completed. THANKS for the nudge :)

Thank you for contacting me. I have transferred Julia into your hands. It's always good to place someone with a family member.

I found a marriage record for Juanita and posted it to her Findagrave memorial. Her husband, Leroy Long Sweten is also buried in Holdenville Cemetery. I have made that link.
