My Ancestry Tree
I've sent you an invite for my Ancestry tree. It probably doesn't have anything that you don't have. It's also a mess... I made the mistake of adding my entire family (including my daughter's fathers family) into one tree so 90% of my tree won't pertain to you! But I do find it helpful sometimes to look at relatives trees when I come across a record and would like to see how they relate to me. What I need to get from my mother is a photograph of her photo of Maud (Brown) Hill. It's a VERY large photo and it's oval shaped in a beveled frame. It used to hang in our living room when I was a child. It wouldn't fit into any home scanner I would need to take a photo of the photo.

Joseph Brock's 1809 will
I am not sure if you have ever seen this 1809 will for Joseph Brock. He only mentions "son Christopher" in one passage, where he leaves him $100. Most of what he has went to his wife and Martin Frank Brock. You can download it here if you don't already have it; "North Carolina, Probate Records, 1735-1970," images, FamilySearch (,169819201 : accessed 5 February 2015), Jones > Wills, 1778-1807, Vol. A > image 169 of 185; county courthouses, North Carolina.

I managed to get edit@findagrave to add the obit you left in the flower section of her memorial to her obit. I have also requested she be connected to her husband.

Fred Smith

Thank you for the edit of Fred Smith. Your work on Find a Grave is appreciated.

Just a thought in passing. I have a Hargrove branch in my tree. My maternal Great Grandmother was Emma L Hargrove (1857-1923) daughter of William T Hargrove (1833-1908). She married M. D. Byers on 21 Dec 1874.
They lived for many years in Elkmont, Alabama and are both buried in New Garden Cemetery. If there is any connection let me know. I'm always elated when I find a long lost cousin.

Best Regards,
Tim DeBoor

Zelda Hargrove Smith
Zelda Smith was my grandmother. I am interested in finding anything about Carter Smith's history. Orlenia Reed Smith would have been Carter Smiths' grandmother. Orlenia's husband was Willis McLemore Smith. My e-mail is

RE: DNA Match in Family Finder
My first Mead connection is through the marriage of Elizabeth Mead, b. 1775 to Abner Needham, b. 1771. Their daughter, Betsey, married Jeremiah Young.

My Gustavison/Gustavsen family came from Sweden to Norway. Will keep working on the connection.

RE: Doctor Joe Edd Magnusson
Hello Ms. Imogean,

I created Dr. Magnusson's memorial that day with you in mind. I want you to have it. I linked him to his parents as you requested, then transferred the memorial to you.

Browning Descendants

My name is Patrick Browning and I've been searching for Browning descendants who are within my family tree... My 3rd great grandfather was William L. Browning, brother of Robert Jonathan Browning... I noticed you had a picture of several descendants of Robert and I would love to visit this Browning cemetery in Harvest. In addition this would give me an opportunity to meet some long distant cousins if possible. I currently live in Prattville AL and would like to take this opportunity to visit... Please contact me so I can arrange a meeting.

Thank you for what you have done and I look forward to hearing from you...
