Bio and Links
Bio Photo Photo of 4 gen. my mother, my daughter, me, and my daughters, daughter,my granddaughter, sitting on Nana's lap. My name is Diana (Giddens) Shrum my husband is Dave Shrum, we live in Missouri.My fathers side of my family lived in Pulaski, Phelps, Dent, Shannon, and Texas, Co. Missouri. When I was a young child my dad would take me to the cemetery his family is all buried in he taught me to respect and love the history that lies in them along with the amazing people that once lived, and we call family. Most of the people who are buried in that cemetery are related, to me and each other one way or the other. I dont live near where a lot of my family have been laid to rest. Fine A Grave is the closest thing I have to be able to visit most of my loved one. The surnames I am related, to are, Giddens, Stark, Hensley, Morgan, Dye, Clark, Nickles, Buckner, Gale, Butler, Ireland, Dewitt, and many more. My Husband knew little about his family till I started working on his side of the family. The Shrum, Johnson & many more. If you have anything you would like me to add to a memorial, of a love one, family are just a friend. Please use the edit on the memorial, and I will get the info added as soon as I can. I have found that some people don't think, they need to add, the info, sent to them, for a memorial, that has been suggested. I think the more that is known about a person and the life they lived, the more, we get a understanding of who they were,and how they lived there life here on earth. We help, give them a voice, and keep there memory alive. It is sad that we have so many memorials with just a name and dates. They are all more then that, they were,the ones who paved the path we walk. When History about a family is lost, so will its children be lost. We never really know who we are till we know who and where we came from. No one should ever be forgotten are where they are buried be unknown. If,I am in care of one of your loved one's and they are not of my Family, are,if they are, and you are closer in relation,to them then me, I will be happy to transfer them to you.

John Redfern Tucker
Hi Diana
As you know I do dispute that John Redfern Tucker is my GG Grandfather. Just hope any family member's check the sources before they add him to their family tree. Debra

Hi Diana,

I have made the updates you suggested for Margaret Neely. If you are related and want to manage this memorial, I will transfer it to you. I am not related. I always prefer to have family manage family...

RE: JT Clark
Thank you for the Transfer of infant JT Clark. Son of Dr. Francis Marion Clark and Malinda Louanna Williams.
I have seen your name and contributions many times on my relatives memorials..
I am related to the Clark and Privitt families in Shirley, AR- grandparents on both sides- Large family and mst I have never met, my grandparents knew them and told me stories about them so I have always had an understanding of our family history and was familiar with most of the elder family members names from the 1850's through the 1900's.
I do discover and have met several new family members in my research. Would live to hear your relationship to the Clark's .
I hope your son has a quick recovery!
Best Regards

RE: Tucker family
I'm not sure. Based on census records Malissa Caroline Tucker was the sister of my Eliza or Louisa Jane Tucker. Her first husband William Hance was the brother of Eliza's husband Crow Hance.
Now, Mary Caroline Giddens born about 1836 married Francis Marion Tucker, the uncle of Malissa and Eliza/Louisa. Her obituary is in the J.J. Watts collection and it says her father was William G. Giddens. my email is if you want to contact me
