Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm a native Californian, but I've lived in Maryland and now live in Broomfield, Colorado (since 2006) which is between Boulder and Denver. I'm married, have four grown sons, a dog and a cat. Genealogy research has been my obsess--I mean, HOBBY, since 2008.

My paternal "Yankee" lines are: Wilcox, Harry, Charlton, Kent,Sykes, Arnold, Winslow, Purvis, Berry,etc.

My maternal Southern lines are Pickett, Gazaway, Mitchell, Fowler, Strickland, Ellington, George, Langston, White, Biffle, Ingram, etc.

My husband's (mostly midwest) lines are Jenkins, McCoy, Norton, Ott, Deyo, Ashbaugh, Judkins, Rice, Taylor, Simpson, Gilpin, Artz, etc.

Please don't hesitate to either post publicly or send me a message privately, if you think we might share ancestors and wish to compare notes.

Cozart Collier Smith
Thank you so much for the picture of Cozart Smith and the info about "Uncle Zoo". If you have additional information and would like to write a brief bio on him, will put it on the memorial with credit to you.

Marguerite Elizabeth Gazaway Gorbandt
The material you sent has been added to the memorial and I transferred it to you. Marguerite's first husband, Cozart Smith, is a descendent of Dr. John Mayson and his first wife, Ozella. Dr. Mayson's second wife, Clifford Zachry Mayson, was my paternal grandmother's sister.

Kyseth, Mary Faye
Greetings Laura,

Me & my mom are volunteers with Find A Grave. You mentioned that you were looking for the grave of Kyseth, Mary Faye. I found her on the Forest Lawn database.She is buried at the Forest Lawn Cemetery in Hollywood Hills. It reads that the DOB is May 23,1916 & the DOD is May 08,1990 the Section she is laid to rest is Tenderness, Lot #2806 Space #2.

Would you do the honor of creating a memorial for your loved one on Find A Grave. Or do you want me to create a memorial for Mary Faye Kyseth?

Glad to be of service.
Michelle & Betty Allaire
