Like a tiny seed That fell to earth. When no one cared Or knew it's worth.
Through wind and rain Sleet and snow. It sprouted roots. And began to grow.
Now Whoever thought That you and me. Would be one branch Of that mighty tree.

WELL HERE WE GO AGAIN...I HAVE LOST TWO MORE OF MY MEMORIAL IN THE PAST FEW DAYS. DOSEN'T SEEM FAIR AFTER ALL THE WORK I'VE PUT INTO THEM AND THEY ARE MY FAMILY, THAT THEY ARE GIVEN TO SOMEONE ELSE..I HOPE HOWEVER GOT THEM ARE HAPPY!
THEY ARE NOT REALLY GONE. UNTIL WE STOP THINKING ABOUT THEM...
I DON'T KNOW WHAT IS GOING ON WITH MY MEMORIALS BUT I HAVE LOST A LOT OF THEM IN THE PAST FEW MONTHS, MY HOWARD MEMORIALS. LAST WEEK I HAD 1,352 NOW I HAVE 1,350 SO NOW I'VE LOST 2 MORE. OVER 90% OF MY MEMORIALS ARE MY ANCESTORS, FAMILY AND FRIENDS. I HAVE WORKED HARD ON THESE FOR MANY YEARS SO FAMILY MEMBERS WILL BE ABLE TO TRACE THEIR ANCESTORS, PLUS I HAVE TRIED TO HELP OTHERS TO THE POINT OF LONG PHONE CONVERSATIONS WITH THEM. I DO NOT ASK ANYONE TO TRANSFER ANY OF THEIR MEMORIAL TO ME, THEY MADE THEM AN I THINK THEY DESERVE TO KEEP THEM. I DO NOT GO AROUND AND COLLECT MEMORIALS FROM OTHERS, IF SOMEONE ALREADY POSTED A FAMILY MEMBER OF MINE AND POSTED IT FIRST THEY SHOULD KEEP IT. I HAVE HAD A LOT OF DUPLICATES OF MY MEMORIALS, SOME WERE GIVEN TO THE OTHER PERSON OR PERSONS WHO JUST POSTED LAST YEARS OR SOONER, WHEN MINE WAS POSTED 7 0R 8 YEARS AGO.
***DO NOT TAKE MY PERSONAL PHOTOS OF MY FAMILY AND PLACE THEM ON ANCESTRY OR ANY OTHER WEBSITES***

Memorial #23241466 This memorial for Polina Jane Mullins Howard is now a duplicate since her actual burial place has been determined to be in the James Howard Cemetery off Pricey Creek Road. Could you please remove this duplicate? Thank You! Manton Ray
Frances Jane Lemaster Tackett Sherry, Franky as she was called was my Great Grandmother. Her son Warren Harvey Lemaster by Richard M. Lemaster was my Grandfather. Do you have any information on Ward, Della, James (Jesse) etc.??? I like your findagrave memorial and I've research all you have posted and it's right on. My brick wall right now is whether James or Jesse Tackett is correct. Would appreciate any info.
Lewis Tackett and Lucy Smith hi Sherry, I too am descended from Lewis Tackett and Lucy Smith, my ancestor is a daughter of theirs...Rebecca Tackett, that married Lewis Jefferson Keaton. Im curious if you know the parents or siblings, or anything about our Smiths?????
