Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been searching for our families for many years and finally had success with "Find A Grave". Now that I'm a volunteer, I am enjoying helping others with their search. Hobbies include sewing, chair caning and searching cemeteries. My husband, Richard, and I have been married 45 years and are now enjoying retirement in Tennessee. We have 2 daughters, a wonderful son-in-law, and 3 grandchildren. I WILL GLADLY TRANSFER MAINTENANCE TO ANYONE RELATED TO THE POSTING I'VE MADE. Yes, you may copy any pictures I've posted.

RE: Transfers
Hello JudyAnne,
By all rights, you should have this couple for your care. I am also related to the good doctor, but only distantly. If you would chase some links to the Dr.'s siblings, you will note that I am responsible for many of the early postings, and our ancestory goes far back to our mutual ancestor, Revolutionary Soldier, Jesse White. Dr. A.A. Pearson, stated in a letter, that he was seeking the grave of Jesse White, looking from a bend in the river, to a huge wooded area, where Jesse was buried. Look for the burial in White Cemetery, Autauga Co.

One of Jesse's daughters married a Pearson. I am 84 and near the end of the road, but have studied this family for 48 years. I assume that you are much younger than I, since I have eleven grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren. I shall transfer this couple to you, but will be in the future, if you allow me to give you some of the family history. I have much to share.

Please go to the prefered method of transfer, using the "Edit" button, on the upper right. In the future, please, use my e-mail on my profile page. I dislike using "Leave a message" for chit chat and correspondence.

RE: Hopewell Cemetery
It wasn't very hard to find at all. If you are ever in the area my family and I would be glad to escort or even show you how to get there. But it would probably be a good idea to do so outside the time frame of any local hunting seasons,as the cemetery is located behind a gate on leased hunting club.

RE: Tyus Photos
Yes, I am related. My husband, Johnnie Tyus, is the great great great grandson of "Major" Lewis Tyus & Mary Tyus. We were home visiting his mother and I had planned to visit the cemetery anyway, so I was glad to get the photos for you. No one was home in the house. I'm not sure who owns the land. My husband's Aunt Ulrice said that a few years ago they had taken up a collection to fix up the cemetery and put some grave markers on some of the unmarked graves (specifically her grandparents, Clarence J. Tyus & Mary Aleia Golson Tyus, and her sister, Louise Tyus, that died as a baby). However, it was so overgrown when we went that I was unable to find those. We plan to go back the next time we are visiting. But next time we will be prepared (wearing jeans and tennis shoes instead of shorts & sandals!) and plan to clear away some of the briars. I hope to get pictures of all the graves that are there.

Are you related?

Bonneau family in Snow Cemetery
Judyanne - Would you mind transferring the Infant Bonneau Daughters (31449139) to me. They are my cousins and I am the Grand Niece of their father, William H. Bonneau, Jr.

Thanks you so much for all the work you've done!

The Shanks
You probably have more data on the Shanks than I do. I'm going to do some homework next week in an effort to fix the errors. You and my wife are most likely related. My wife's grandparents are George Silas Walls & Amanda E Shanks, daughter ofJames Alexander Shanks & Rebecca Shelton, so somewhere down the ancestral line the both of you are connected.

Mathew Shanks & Margaret Taylor are GGG Uncles to my wife.

Forgive me for any errors and I will try to clear them up. George Mosher/Ft Worth/TX
