Bio and Links
Bio Photo In the early 1980's, I curiously began searching for my ancestors. It has gone from curiosity to a passion all consuming. There is always something new to discover!! I owe it all to my BFF, Geneva!!
For those of you who sit in front of a cemetery book or a newspaper obituary column copying deaths into a cemetery, I truly feel sorry for you. For those of you who complain about those of us who have "Unknown Burials". I believe the name of this program is "Find A Grave". The hopes of family researchers is that some one some where will FIND our lost ancestor and may even find a tombstone of that loved one. As for me, I am so proud that this site has come about where I can share my family with others and hopefully find long lost family that I would never have found otherwise. Thank you, FindAGrave.
If you come across someone I have entered in a cemetery that is your ancestor and you have pictures or a bio you would like to add, OR you would like a transfer, don't hesitate to contact me through the EDIT button. I will transfer if they are not related to me.
Please be advised that links and other data on memorials [other than those for my immediate family members] more often than not come from other Find A Grave members and/or guests and/or from Ancestry. It has come to my attention that edits/links are added within a matter of days, without my acceptance or denial. Please double check & verify all information before taking what you read as gospel.
LINKING NOTE: Too many errors have come up with people submitting "Edits". I will no longer change any memorial without a verifiable source being provided.
PLEASE-NO death certificates on memorials I have created or manage!! Personal information should be kept personal.
VOLUNTEER PHOTOGRAPHERS: I appreciate your enthusiasm in taking tombstone pictures in cemeteries, BUT I do not appreciate additional tombstone photos on memorials when there is already a clear tombstone picture for that memorial.
FAMILY PHOTOS: I invite you to enjoy the family pictures posted, but ask that they not be copied and placed on any other website without my written permission.

My grandmother is Mary Ellen (Haselden) Kincaid who is buried in Cherokee (Hanna) Cemetery. My dad oftened spoke of two uncles, brothers of Mary Ellen. One is Triz C, the other I cannot find. I don't know his name. I've tried census records from 1880 on up in San Saba County and surrounding counties. No luck. Any suggestions?

I have transferred this memorial to you. Do I have any others that you are interested in?

I don't know anything about the name change you mentioned and am not related to the family. Are you?

I put a note on Zula's memorial about the birth date discrepancy.

RE: #139540237
Thank you. How true it is on death certificates. My grandmothers is so messed up. I asked my mother why they didn't ask me but she said her older brother was the oldest and should have known. He didn't and it is a mess, using nick names rather than real names. Take care and thank you for your hard work

Elizabeth King (Jolly)
Hello Kay, You left a note on Elizabeth's page that her spouse was Alfred King. This note was left on March 25, 2015. Do you have any info on Alfred? He and Elizabeth are my 2 times great grandparents. I haven't been able to find Alfred's date or place of burial.
Thank you!

It's me again. I got the obit! They spelled his name as above and the obit says that Gertie was his 3rd wife. Wonder who was #2? I'll have to keep looking. It also said he had 15 children!!

RE: Ancestry takeover
Kay, It gets complicated sometimes. I knew, that Ancestry and FindaGrave were working together. I did want to let you know, that no one is supposed to leave information on the flowers they leave for a memorial. If, you read Findagrave's inscructions, they do not allow it. You are only supposed to leave your grievance and name if, you choose. So, I have gone through my memorials removing facts. Hope, I didn't miss any. I will leave my memorials as is and hopefully others will check closely since, I have added so much information and links. Let me know if, I can help. Connie

Clayborn Cook
Hi again. I talked with my father in law, the Loveless(Dye) family historian/genealogist. Martha was his cousin. Clayborn Cook left his wife and 9 children for Campbellsville Kentucky and another woman.(Gertie??)He said that Martha considered Clayborn DEAD to her so therefore the Widow title. I have contacted the Taylor County Public Library today for an obit. I've been doing research myself on ancestry. I'll keep you posted.

Clayborn Cook
While doing some Loveless family research I came across Clayborn Cook #118717069. The bio states that he is the husband of Martha Bell Tanner/Cook. Thought you might be interested since you have a memorial for the same man. He is listed in Pine grove church cemetery Casey County Kentucky. On ancestry I found the death certificate for this man. He has the same parents but there is a wife listed: Girtie Cook.??
