Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Yakima, WA. I've been pursuing family history seriously for almost 30 years -- almost as long as I've been married to my wonderful husband. He is not so much into genealogy, but is a good sport about my "addiction", even to the point of helping me look for relatives in cemeteries when we travel. I love meeting cousins, too.

Main family names: Boone, Mayfield, Short, Tate, Savage, Hughes, Graham, Slater.

Dear Doy,
Thank You for the rapid reply.

What wonderful details you found.

I will reply to Carolina Grave Hunter and ask her to link them.

Yeh! We unearthed some Low Gap History. Thank You for helping piece it together.

Keep on findagrav-en.

William Martin Elder Memorial# 131258608
I just added another photo to William Martin Elder's memorial.

Please read the comment with the photo.

I am sending the same photo and words to the creator of Martha Elder's memorial. Hope we all agree.

I never heard anyone talk about William Martin Elder or multiple wives.

All I know is that is Great Grandfather Amery's headstone in the photo background with his 2 wives. One of those being Mary Elder who would be William Martin's sister.

William D. Black (#97848889)
Doy: The family has always assumed the middle name of William D. Black was "Dye" but to my knowledge no legal documentation has yet to be found with his full name on it.
I hope you understand my decline of your edit for his middle name.
Thank you.

RE: John W. Mayfield
You are very welcome. Glad to help. I enjoy searching cemeteries for elusive markers. It is the ultimate scavenger hunt. As you may have noticed, the stone is sinking into the ground and the face of the stone is almost abutting the stone border of another family plot. I could not dig down to see the death date.

RE: Jerry Myer Liebau
Doy, aorry for taking so long to get back with you. You are probably correct in assuming that Jerry was named for his uncle. But after discussing this with his granddaughter, we agreed to leave his name as 'Jerry Myer'. According to her, that was the only name he used.

Your photo request has been fulfilled, but for some reason it hasn't been taken off of the Photo Request list. Please address this when you can :)
