Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi I'm Jay Follett.

I've been doing family history since about 1988. It's amazing what we can do know with digital technology and biology (DNA).

I'm researching my ancestors and their descendants:

Paternal: Kirby, Christoffersen, Follett, Niles, Morrill, Stokes, Hansen, Gibson, Woolf, Irons, Jorgensen, Sickles.

Maternal: Hamilton, Hester, Jones, Owens, Chandler, Copeland, Bartlett, Orr, Mitchell, Pond, Judd, Orr (among others).

I've also created many memorials for many unrelated people including many from local cemeteries in New Mexico and other places. If you want a transfer for any of these, let me know. Not really in it for the numbers or personal credit but more of a public service. It's not about me but them.

My fathers side of the family include pioneers and immigrants who joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Mom's side were southerners, mostly Baptists and Methodists, and include a few colorful characters.

I hope the legacy of my memorials will enable others to find and know their ancestors, to preserve our history and to honor those who have gone before us and made us who we are.

Thanks to the many photo volunteers, folks who have added details and links and others who have collaborated in this effort.

If you have corrections, additional information, pictures or would like to add links, let me know and your or I can add them to the memorials I have created.

You are free to use any photo or other data I have added for person use or for family history or for use on or other family history web sites.

I've tried to connect as may of my relatives as I can find in findagrave.

In addition to findagrave, also has my ancestors and their descendants in the tree jayfollett. I have around 12,000+ people in this tree (and growing).

Thanks and happy hunting.


P.S. When I started using findagrave there were less than 20 million names. Pretty amazing site.

I recently took DNA test and I would highly recommend this to anyone who needs a boost in identifying ancestors and their descendants.

You are welcome. I wanted to mention that there are duplicates of Mccartney Find a Grave memorials in this cemetery, spelling of name differs; "Mccartney" vs. "McCartney".

RE: Harris Photo
Glad I could help. I also added the photo to the Clarence and Stanley Harris pages and created a page for Frances Harris and put the photo on it as well. William already had a photo of the whole stone on his page but it was fun finding the grave anyway.
If you know of a family member that would like to take over the Frances Harris page I will gladly transfer it.
I can also say that not even the cemetery records have any information about dates of birth or death for Norma Harris who is also on that stone. Tom

Nancy Pond Mitchell
Jay I spent this past weekend end seeking out our 5 times Grandmother, Nancy Pond and Grandfather, Cooney Mitchell. Nancy was the mom of Georgiana who was the mother of Scott Milam. He was the father of my grandmother Ruby Marthena Owens Trammell. With out the grace of God and several very generous people we would never have found Grandmother Nancy. The cemetery where she is completely over grown. It is now under new owner ship as of the last 8 months. But the foreman has given me permission to come any time, my goal is to clean up the area as best we can. He says that the graves will remain where they are. I am thinking of going back in the fall or early winter, to avoid the snacks and clean it up;

I believe we're related through Golda Christofferson! Pretty interesting, hoping to see if we could message to confirm and get more named added to my family tree on ancestry! I also did the DNA!
