Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in Nebraska, raised in eastern North Carolina and after living in various parts of the U.S., I now live in northern Utah, just below the Idaho boarder.
Can't remember when I didn't enjoy going through graveyards. So being a part of Find A Grave is perfect for me.
The first joke I can remember being told was by my father who died in 1961.
He'd pull up to a cemetery and say "Kids, this is the most popular place in town. Yep! People are just dying to get inside." And he and Mom would just chuckle as we drove away.
Being young at the time, it didn't hit me for
years what he meant so, that is how my curiosity
got the better of me. I just had to find out
about all those people who were "Dying" to get inside those graveyards.
The family names I'm researching the most are TEW, GODWIN, HAYES & JACKSON out of North Carolina, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Texas & Flroida.
OBERMIER, FINKE, WEIMER & AGGEN out of Nebraska, Wisconsin & Germany.
I've been doing genealogy for 40+ years and it is one of things that I love to do.
Thank you to those who have helped me out with my requests.

Byrd family information

I am a descendant of John Haywood Byrd, and I am looking for more source material for his life. His son James F. Byrd was my great grandfather. My grandfather was John William Walter Byrd and my grandmother was Willie Mae Coleman, a descendant of another Confederate veteran, Henry James Coleman. Her mother was Mary B. Wallace, the daughter of another Confederate veteran John Mack Wallace.

If you could help with any information on the Byrds of Harnett and Durham Counties, it would be a great help.

Beth Sarah Knowles
Beth Sarah was 1st married to James Alderman Crumpler & 2nd to James Elbert Hollingsworth. On her memorial page someone added the name of her father as John Tyler HOLLINGSWORTH -- shouldn't that be John Knowles?

Thank you so very much for all of the time & effort that you put into your memorial pages -- they have been greatly appreciated as I attempt to trace my family! Keep up the great work!!

I'm sorry. I should have at least looked at the name and questioned you. Thank for the correction. An easy fix.

RE: Daniel Jackson Coleman
Please send me his full name date of birth and where - date of death and where. You can add things to Daniel Jackson Coleman's memorial by adding a flower or do you want to maintain it?
