|Bio and Links|
I began my research in 1977. I loved hearing about my family from my Granny who was from Jefferson Co., Ms.; my grandfather was from Copiah Co., Ms. |
She would invite us over when someone came to her house in Texas from Mississippi. I remembered the surnames; FURR, SMITH, PIERCE, SAXON and CALLENDER to name a few. I listened to her stories. When I began my research, she was still alive. I went back to Texas and visited her. My cousin Carl Pierce & I recorded her life story in 1979. We went through a box of old photos. All grandmother's have boxes of old photos! She was an inspiration. I will be forever greatful I listened to her & loved her. She died in 1985 at age 98. I visit my families' cemeteries and take photos when I can. One eventful trip to Mississippi in 2001 was very productive.
My maternal grandmother was of Spanish & Cajun families from Louisiana. Among those surnames are MIGUEZ, AMY, BROUSSARD, LOIGNON & ETIE.
She lived until 1995 & also died at age 98. She wrote and told me much as well. She married TURNER & FREDERICK, so those surnames also.
Lately, I have been prompted to post the additional grave locations of my deceased husband whose family surnames are KELLY, GREEN, GILSTRAP, ADCOX, LOCKABY & SHERIFF; all being from the Pickens County area of South Carolina.
My current spouse's names are among my newest include:ROYCE,ALEXANDER,CHALFANT,CASE,DOYLE,
BLASKA & GRIFFIN. Those families were from Minnesota, Iowa, Ohio, Connecticut, New Hampshire & Tennessee & Mississippi.
Most of the memorials you see are my ancestors. Please feel free to email me with any corrections. My goal is to leave a lasting legacy for future generations by passing on accurate information. You may copy any photos I contributed here to share with your family. If related to me; contact me. I have a large database with all my relatives in it. Over 30,000+.
My heartfelt appreciation to those who have created memorials or taken pictures of my family members.

I've transferred Wealtha's memorial over to your care. I figured that you'd also want John's. Family should be with family.

Just use the edit button to send info and I will add the desired info. Thx Janet
|Ellie's Grandma||Caroline Vosburg|
Well, I'm so glad that you found her and suggested this, because it would be a shame, I agree, for her to be alone without any parental links,
|Ellie's Grandma||RE: Caroline Cole Vosburg|
You are so very welcome! If this is your family, Leslie, I'd be happy to make a transfer.
|Mona Lasyone||Pierce (maiden name)|
Just a short note, My son and I will be seeking out family graves tomorrow in the cemetery your family members are in. We will look around for your names. Also wanted to ask,is Pierce your maiden or married name? I am a Pierce by birth. My dad was from Brockton Ma. and my mom was from here in Louisiana. I started my search only a few weeks ago and have uncovered some exciting things on my Pierce side. Have you looked into that area as yet? Hope to find your loved ones, will keep you posted. ML
|Ila Sosebee Lark||Mamie Adcox memorial|
I really appreciate your offering to transfer Mamie's memorial to me. Thank you very much.
|Ila Sosebee Lark||Adcock / Bradley|
I am searching for J.W. Adcock who was married to Mamie Bradley. Mamie died in Belton, S.C. about 1968.
I know you have more information about these families than I do and I would really appreciate your reply.
Thanks ever so much.
|Ron Mills||Elizabeth NEEL; daughter of Henry Neel|
Leslie, Do you have anymore info about Elizabeth's family? Please send it to me if you do. Thanks, Ron
She was Elizabeth NEEL; daughter of Henry Neel (1685-1835) of Barbados who died in Bladen, North Carolina. His father was Thomas Neel/Neal of England (1653-1732). Her mother was a Mrs. Susannah Simpson of North Carolina.
|Kerry Girolamo||Rhoda Mitchell|
Hi Leslie. I made the corrections and transferred Rhoda to you. Maybe you can add more to her memorial since you have some info on her already. Happy New Year and thanks! Kerry
|Jim Easom||George Kendall|
Leslie, I think this is the wrong George Kendall #81468766. I can't find this one. I think according to census records that this is not the George married to Carrie. Unless you have something I don't know about. The correct George Kendall is #75716759. Thank-you.
