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.

Moses Maples in Union Cemetery
I am writing about the Civil War in Woodville, AL. I found your picture of Moses Maples and have seen him discussed prominently in Haunted Alabama Battlefields by Dale Langella. Have you heard any of these tales. Could we reproduced your photo (with credit) in a handout that accompanies the driving tour of jackson county that we are working on.

Nancy Maples (dau. of Josiah)
Does anyone know when Nancy Maples (married John Hammack) was born and died? I have her as the mother of Elizabeth Jane Hammack, who was born in 1787, but I can't find a reliable date of birth or death. She would have married John in Virginia before family moved to Tennessee. Josiah would be my 5th great grandfather.

RE: William Maples
Sorry it took so long to get back to you. Do you have an email that I could correspond with you instead of through this website? Mine is It might be easier. If you would prefer through here, I completely understand.

I think I meant your father ???

Your grandfather, Albert Stanley Thomas, is my eleventh cousin. Our closest common ancestors are James Avery (1620 - 18Apr1700) and Joanna Greenslade (1622 - 16Apr1693) They are my 10th Great Grandparents. Your Minor family connects back to our common ancestor at Walter Palmer and goes many more generations back into Europe.

William Maples
I was looking at family ancestry and was looking at Wm Maples' find a grave and noticed that he was also my 6th great grandfather. Small world. Maybe we can compare notes if you would like in reference to this family. Contact me through here if you are interested.

Thank you so much for the work you have put into your entries! I have been working on my geneaology for a couple of years now, but always seem to be drawing blanks in some areas. My grandfather was Francis Jean Sorensen.

Once again!

Thank you!
