Bio and Links
Bio Photo Her passion was genealogy, she loved it! For years my mother researched; wrote letters; purchased b/m/d certificates. She was known as a great genealogists by our entire family. The computer was intimidating to her, but daddy always said "There's never been a computer built that could match your mamma's memory." He was right! We kids thought her passion for the dead was silly. Then when my mother-in-law passed away, I realized that my husband's family history went to the grave with her. I started searching for info on my grandfather & an uncle...I got hooked, BIG TIME! Needless to say, mother was thrilled that I was finally interested in genealogy. We'd talk for hours on the phone about this one & that one. Mother wanted me to get everything she had gleaned, entered on the computer. Then 2 months ago I found this website & started entering everyone's data. I'd print the pages & mail them to mother for her proofing & approval. I never dreamed that just two months later I'd be memorializing my mother here. What little bit of work I'd done on FAG before mother passed away was rewarding. However, I found it healing to enter her biography & honor her memory. I'd be thrilled to have you visit my mother's (Wynona Thomas) memorial. Thank you, FAG for this forum to honor our loved ones. In the 2 months I've been entering data here, I've had several volunteers take photos of my loved one's tombstones & share them with me. Thank you all for this wonderful gift. If I can assist anyone with photos, please let me know.

PLEASE do not copy or upload my photos to any other websites. Its copyright infringement, and I do not want my volunteer work given to any for profit sites.

Would you have any information about Elizabeth Laird, the half sister of Robert Franklin Laird's father, Robert Samuel? I have a friend whose DNA is matching the Laird line from MS.

Thomas Family Reunion
I've enjoyed using your Find A Grave info for our upcoming Thomas family. I'm a descendant of (1)Laban Gilbert Thomas/Rachel Helen Maples, (2) Laban Henry 'Bud' Thomas, (3) Levi Burton Thomas, (4) Wilson Calvin Thomas. The 'cousins' of Levi's children are getting together in 2 weeks, along with his only surviving child, Betty Gene Thomas Chiles, in Sulphur Springs. We visited the Maples graves (and others) in April and all were in good condition. Any ideas, hints or other info that you might like to share would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
