Bio and Links
Bio Photo If I have added a family member or friend of yours and you want me to transfer it to you, just send me a note in a "Suggest a Correction." I do not have a sense of entitlement to the memorials I put on here. As volunteers we should be grateful for the memorials that family members are caretakers of. If you would, please let me know how you knew the deceased just for my own personal knowledge as well as your Contributor ID number.

I have four children of my own and another that I am raising as mine. They are the most amazing five children ever. My three "littles" are in 10th grade, 8th grade and 7th grade. My "bigs" are 24 and 23. My daughter who is 24 is recently married and a special needs assistant at an elementary school. My son who is 23 is currently a crew chief in the Air Force but will soon be training for TacP. They are my life wholly and completely.

I also had a FABULOUS granny that meant everything to me. She is bar none the most amazing woman I have ever known. She is the reason I do this. All my life my granny made sure that her family was never forgotten. She has made me feel as if I know family members I have never met. Keeping family memories and histories alive is what this is all about.

After all, we are nothing without our ancestors.

On February 9th, 2010, my Granny, Livvie Bilbrey McCowan, passed away. Her daughter Ina McCowan Blanch was my grandma. Please visit their memorials if you have the time. I miss them so much and they were both truly some of the greatest women who have ever lived.

Also, please visit my step-dad, Jack David McKenzie's memorial too. Anything you left would tremendously help my mother with the grieving process. I have just introduced her to this site and she finds it cathartic.

I lost my mother unexpectedly at age 59 on October 14, 2012. I will never be the same again. Please visit her, Bobbie Darlene McKenzie if you have the chance and read about her. I never knew anything could hurt so bad.

Some of my family names are Gregg, Bilbrey, Phipps, Brown, McCowan, Phillips, Crawford, Kennedy, Smart, Ingram, Meer, Shull and Harvey.

Connie S. Baldwin
Crystal, My high school class of 1959 is to have our 55th class reunion in September and we were searching for Connie Sue Worsham Hart and I was told by her son, Mike Hart, that she died in 1997 in Muncie (Delaware Co., IN)under the name of Baldwin. I was searching for an obit so that we can be absolutely sure that this is the correct Connie Baldwin. Is there an office connected with the grave yard that I might contact? It is terrible that we did not know that she had passed at such an early date. Thank you for doing the memorial.

Granville Cemetery
My wife has several ancestors in Granville Cemetery and you are right about its condition and location. Henry Dick, who you entered, is her great great grandfather, and his wife Emela is her great great grandmother. We have been to their monument. Her brother and his sister are nearby, James and Mercy Flinn. The Flinns and Dicks were early pioneers of the area. Several other Dick family members are buried in Union Cemetery and the Flinns are also buried in Marion and Wabash.

You're welcome. This Lady's bio makes her out to be one helluva woman and lady. Wish I had known her personally.

I do not have any idea who sent that link and i do not remember linking Nina to Savage, but he is not listed anymore. I do not know how to explain this but it is cleared up now.

RE: Nina Winget Cooper
I did not link Darby Savage some one else has, I created the memorial for Don and Nina, Someone else linked Darby Savage as a Spouse when he was born and died in 1963..

You need to contact the person who has the Darby Savage memorial to do this.

My brother, Charles Wesley Narrod, is buried in Dunlap, Tennessee. My middle name, Alastus, is for my maternal Grandfather, Alastus Bilbrey. My paternal grandfather was Dillard Norrod.
