Bio Photo We have been doing family Genealogy since the mid-1970's and have walked the ground and many cemeteries where our ancestors have been. Most of our ancestors were in Alabama, Georgia,Texas, Missouri, Mississippi, Ohio, the Carolinas, Tennessee, and Kentucky. We now reside in California and do most research via the inter-net.

Hello. Thank you so much for creating a memorial to my Aunt Avis # 74648146. I was curious if you could connect her memorial with her parents (my great grandparents). Her father was James Myers # 76938363 her mother Regina Myers # 76938658. Thank you.

Are you by any chance related to, William L. Barnes? I saw that you created his memorial for the Cannon Cemetery. I'm not, but he is buried next to my Uncle Frank Miller and I always heard that the funeral home got their headstones mixed up. Wanted to know if that was true.

I will go back and look again in a couple of weeks. I will ask the office for a map of the Section if I can.. It depends on what clerk is at the desk. Some are nice and some are not so nice..
