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.

Sarah Elliott
Hello Doy, I enjoyed reading how your husband tolerates your "addiction". My husband has no interest either. In regards to Sarah Elliott, thank you for her birth date. I found it extremely sad that she lost three of her children, then she herself, passed shortly after. I had to have help to move the stone to read the inscriptions. This cemetery is in pretty good shape, but there are a few stones that are in ill state, and Sarah and her children is one of them. Are you related? Each Day Counts, Loretta

John & Mary Howard
Hi Doy,
Thank you for catching that necessary marriage year correction for the Howards. I have made the change and added the children you suggested to Mary's biography. I am not related, so if you would like me to transfer ownership, I would be happy to do so.

Isaac Surber memorial
There seems to be some confusion in the list of siblings for Isaac Surber (b. 1782, d 1847). I would like to discuss this with you privately. Elvina Hiatt

Ida Pearl (Savage) Lamirand
No death cert. for Ida Pearl. I really don't know who her parents are then. So sorry.

Ida Pearl Savage Lamirand
On family trees there are two different possibilities. Not sure which is correct:

Father: Giles Monroe Savage (1849-1941)
Mother: Laura Robertson (1851-1940)

Father: Andrew Jackson Savage (1865-1939)
Mother: Maud O Atchley (1867-1918)

I vote No. 2 because if you look at her siblings (Virgil, Willie Martin & Edgar) death cert's. They give Andrew & Maud. TN death cert's are online

Good day Doy
In our Bybee Cousin Finder Org. db we have her as Mary Elizabeth. I wonder if the L might have been for Lizzy or Libby. My g-grandmothers name was Elizabeth but everyone called her Libby.
I did not create her FG memorial and did not catch the name listed after it was transferred to me. I have changed the name and added some notation.
I hope that helps.

I know that her headstone shows her with middle initial L, but on her death certificate, her name is shown as Mary Elizabeth. In 1870, she is shown as Mary E. Help?

Thanks! Doy (Rank cousin/researcher)
