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

I'm researching my ancestors and their descendants:

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

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. Its 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 11,000+ 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.

William Turner Moore update
Hello Jay: thanks for the prompt attention you gave our request to add a note regarding Victoria McMullan being William's first wife. It was important as our link is through their child Ora "Montie" Moore.

Thanks too for all your efforts to date - the volunteers on this sight and everyone who contributes links, photos, or walks the cemeteries are much appreciated.

RE: Edith L. Mitchell McElrath - 132395986
You are quite welcome. I am glad you were interested in what I found out. I was not sure rather to send the information and let you know. You might want to know that her family is part of the Belle Plain Cemetery group and she will always be part of the cemetery, even though she is not buried there.

Edith L. Mitchell McElrath - 132395986
Hi, my name is Pat Collins and I have fallen onto some information about Edith that I was not sure you knew about. I found a request for a picture on a Miller this past week or so and in getting ready to go out to Belle Plain cemetery, I checked the list to see if there were any other Miller's out there. I like to do all of the family when going out and not just one headstone. Anyway, I saw that Edith has find a grave site for Belle Plain, but is not in our list of people buried there. So I checked it out while I was out there and could not find one for her. As we do have a lot of unmarked graves, I asked her uncle this week-end at the Fish Fry the cemetery has every Halloween night.
I was told that Edith is not buried in the cemetery. When she died her body was cremated. Then there was a memorial service out at Belle Plain Cemetery. After the service, her ashes were taken to the place she loved at San Saba River and put into the river.
I did not want to change your memorial site with an edit, but I thought you might want to know what happen to Edith.

I appreciate you transferring my parents memorials to me. I see in your bio that you list an "Owens" in your ancestry. My maternal grandmother was Ruby (Owens) Trammell (46141806). Do you know how you are related to her and to me? Feel free to email me directly @

Thanks again,

Terry Strickland

Transfer Ownership
Hello. Would you be willing to transfer the ownership of memorial #75728180 to me? This is my brother-in-law's grandfather and I am helping him with his family history. Thank you so much! Have a blessed day!

Melvin S. Follette
Hi Jay,
The cemetery office said Melvin S. Follette 125125812 is not buried in Hillcrest Cemetery as you have listed. He is buried in Prospect Hill Cemetery in Norfolk, Madison county, Nebraska, which I have verified. I have taken photos which I will add to your memorial and add a bit more to it once you can transfer the memorial to the correct cemetery.

photo request: Henry Follett
Hi Jay,

I'm hoping I have the right person. I believe I claimed one of your photo requests for a Charles Follett in the South Gibson Cemetery. It wasn't until I uploaded the photo that I realized I had the photo for a different Charles Follett. I deleted the photos and created a new entry for the one I had, but unfortunately, it removed your photo request, so you ay want to add it back in> My sincere apology for the confusion

Thank you for contacting me about the validity of my memorial page.

Although the names are quite similar, you may have noticed the dates are different. The person buried in Lubbock died there in 1993. She was the daughter of William T Gentry. (

The person who died in Austin, Texas in 1962 and is buried in San Antonio was the daughter of Virgil Gentry. (

I hope this clears up the confusion.
