Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been researching my families for over 30 years. Currently, I'm trying to scan & share a large collection of old family photographs and documents that have come to me from various relatives, mostly my late grandmother.

As I scan & prepare the photographs, I'm trying to post as many as possible to findagrave for others to enjoy. Especially the very old ones. Some that are labeled are not of known family connections so I'm also researching the names in an attempt to identify them.

One that I am very proud of is Jesse Elton McEwen, buried at Palms Woodland Cemetery, Miami-Dade Co FL. It took a fair amount of research to figure out that he is probably not related, but simply a neighbor of an ancestor in Carroll Co GA. I've created a memorial for him with the information I collected. Please visit his site and show him some love.

Another memorial that I'm very proud of is for my ancestor, William Francis Marion Nobles, who died as a prisoner of war at Camp Douglas IL. His final resting place is Oak Woods Cemetery, Chicago, Cook Co IL. Please visit him also.

I hope you enjoy visiting my paternal great grandfather, Hilborn Whit Hulsey. My maternal grandfather, Rev Virgil Sizemore, preached his funeral before there was a family connection. My parents were only 10 years old and I don't think they met until a few years later. If you know any of the people mentioned that aren't linked, please let me know.

Surnames I'm connected to include: Ashworth, Barnett, Beam, Black, Burks, Cates, Clore, Crow, Dickson, Dunson, Gilbert, Hendrix, Hulsey, Leathers, Lowe, Lyle, McBrayer, McGlathery, Meadors, Mobley, Mote/Motte, Nobles, Pate, Parr, Pinson, Reid, Sanders, Sizemore, Stanford, Steele, Stephens, Tomme, Vining, Waldrop, Williams, and others.

Places I'm particularly connected to include: Laurens Co SC, Henry & Clayton Co GA, Carroll & Haralson Co GA, and Blount & Cullman Co AL.

Thanks for the tip. I worked from a 2005 survey
of the Fairview West Missionary Baptist Church
Cemetery, and some times that would be late at
night, my eyes and fingers did not match some of
the time. If you find any more let me know.

RE: Headstone Photo
Hi Debbie,

I have added the requested photo. I usually add to both spouses graves but somehow I missed this one. Glad I could add this for you.

RE: Willodean Elliott Sizemore
OK, got him. Had two R.E. Sizemore's in my tree. one with wife, Willodean (Elliott) and second with his parents. Found the second ones mother's obit and the give away was a pallbearer named Rainey Burgess. Rainey is Willodean's brother-in-law. So we got photos and put them on Find a Grave and linked them all together. R.E. is Riley Edgar Sizemore #136040044. Son of Lemuel Clements Sizemore and Ollie (Dennis) Sizemore. Hope this helps

RE: Gahagan
I would love any information on Elsy (Elzy) her husband, her parents, or children what ever you have. If you know where her parents are buried could you get them linked to her?

RE: House
LOL. I know. I am always running into your name too but I have your name in my tree so I can see the relationship - sometimes. In this case, William Oscar House is my 2nd great uncle. His sister, Mary Jane House Martin, is my great-grandmother. I was working on that line because the last child of William Oscar House just died on Jul 31 - Reedie Hector House. I do have a relationship to the Burks line also, besides the Williams line, so we will probably continue to cross paths.
