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 didn't 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 while researching the Hastings aka Hasten families from Southside, Virginia.
Except for two lines that came to America via the Port of New Orleans in the 1850's, all my ancestral lines were in America by early 1700's. Many were in Virginia several years before the Pilgrims' landing on a rock at Plymouth, Massachusetts.

Nancy Hargrove
Hi, thanks for the message about Nancy's father being linked to her as her husband as well. I signed in to edit the information and saw that I only had one spouse for her and that was the Thornton husband. I noted an asterist that indicated it was a calculated link. Then I searched further to find that after I created the Find A Grave memorial for Stephen Pleasant Hargrove on 2/9/13 another individual by the name of Ron Wade created a memorial for him, but used a prefix of "Pvt. in front of the name Stephen Pleasant Hargrove, on 4/9/ appears that the calculation comes from the memorial that he created. As soon as I have a chance to will see how this can be resolved. I did make a note on the memorial to clarify what you sent me.

Thank you so much. I actually created the memorial from notes from my dear mother-in-law's Bible, so I was inputting as much as I could without having any firsthand knowledge. There could be some misinformation so hopefully I can do some research to see what we need to do. I am assuming Stephen Hargrove is one of your ancestors! Again, thank you so much. Any suggestions always welcome. God bless.

Dama Dunnavant

Your email said that Dama's middle name was Ruth, but I have an edit from you changing it from Ruth to unknown. Which is it? The SSDI that you mentioned wasn't included in the email.

By the way, somewhere there'e a picture of me sitting on Santa's lap at Dunnavant's department store. A long time ago!!!

Dear Ruth:
I have transferred Ruth Sims to you as requested. I am certain you will take good care of her memory. She is buried in my "home church" cemetery. :) Peggy Winters
