Bio and Links
Bio Photo We have enjoyed dabbling in our family geneology for many years but have recently become seriously hooked (obsessed some might say) since our children are grown and we have gained an abundance of available "together" time!

My maternal grandmother researched many years before the internet came along as did my husband's aunt. I grew up visiting the family cemeteries and always anxious to hear the stories of the stones. Who? What? When? Where? It was during those times I learned the importance of remembrance, respect and preservation of the final resting places of those gone long before us.

During the past few years while searching for anything that would help piece together the puzzles we were ultimately led to numerous on-line resources to include FINDAGRAVE.COM - we are so appreciative to all of those involved in this awesome endeavor!

We encourage contact from all possible relations and welcome any family links, leads, additions or corrections to our input of information. We are researching the following surnames -

His surnames:
Gumbert - Watson - McGehee - Evers - Maples - West - Peacock - Carroll - Asmus (Assmus) - Eiffert - Cox - Levering - Maxwell
Wilder - West - Polk - Jeter - Poore - Carver - Edwards - Storey - Heine - Harris - Acuff - Solomon - Andrews - Johnson - Dement - Wilburn - Weeden - etc.

Her surnames:
Keisler - Crundwell - Webster - Sledge - Fitzgerald - Swann - Prince - Crouch - Franklow - Wade - Wilkinson - Capers - Wooten - Kent - Sims - Wilson - Mitchell - Overby - Grinstead - Holman - Preston - Bennett - Shannon - Mills - Montgomery - Baker - Hibbard - Broadwater - Adamson - Moore - Jarrell - etc.

Without this network of wonderful selfless people we would not have the opportunity to link to those who have the same desire in obtaining and honoring their family history and heritage. While traveling their own roads and paths many members are more than willing to take the time in assisting a perfect stranger's quest in arriving at similar destinations. We too hope to help in those pursuits while mapping our own courses!

Blessings to all who have given so many countless miles and hours from the heart! And happy hunting!

RE: Col Josiah Julius J.J. Peacock and Delilah Ann Jeanette McKeown Peacock duplicate memorials
Thank you for the transfers, but that does not solve the problem. There are still two memorials on this couple and there only needs to be one. I am kin to them. I asked twice for you to move the information to the original page, but that did not happen. Be rest assured that my memorials are not about "numbers" Yes, I have added a lot of names, but I pretty much research, add maiden names, link them to relatives, add death certificates and documents, etc. Mine are not just bare-bones names and a couple of dates. Many of mine have many pictures. This takes hours and hours of time, for which I am not compensated other than to help others. This has been an ongoing project for more than eleven years now and I pretty much work on findagrave each and every day at least for a few hours each day. Other people have said this same thing to me and... to me it is somewhat demeaning as if it is only about a list of names. I work very hard on this and as you know it is only about helping others to find their relatives. I will see what I can do about consolidating the information for the two pages. Then I must transfer them back to you, so that they can be deleted as they are duplicates. Because you added them, you must delete them. I am tied up at the moment as I have an at home business, but as soon as I get a chance, I will work on them.

Josiah Julius Peacock
I wrote to you about a month ago - you duplicated my memorial on Mr. Peacock. I asked you to remove your duplicate and my request seems to have been ignored. I am asking once again for you to blend your pictures, etc onto the original memorial which I added. If I do not hear from you on this, I will have to contact findagrave to remove it. Only one memorial page is allowed per person - please comply with the rules. Thank you.

Starling Sims
Hi Brenda,
I saw where you had left a post concerning Starling Sims. I believe my Gx4 grandfather may be a brother of Starling. If you would like to compare notes my email address is on my profile.

Webster pics
You are quite welcome. I sent a rather lengthy reg. email with three other pics so please let me know if you have a problem recieving them due to size and I will send them in several separate emails.

Have a great day.

RE: Webster Family Memorials
My husband's aunt married James Thad Lowe and his mother was a Webster. Always nice to be in contact with family members from all sides of the Clan.

RE: Idella Wilson Webster & John Wilson
Yes we are. I've been trying to get her brother John (Jack) H Wilson connected too. However, Benjamin F. Kivett IV (#47755066) controls Find A Grave Memorial# 86708027. He hasn't made the connection yet.

RE: Mariah Willoughby Hicks 64489800
Regarding your question of how I came about the name of McGehee for Mariah Hicks the short answer is, I don't know. I was in correspondence at the time with Alvis Duncan Hicks' great grandson. I possibly obtained the info from him. I you would like to get more info from him, his name is Don Hicks. As of my last contact with him, 9/2011, his email was:
gunny31 (at) cox (dot) net.

Hope this info is helpful.

RE: Hibbard cousins
I have been in contact with Rhonda. I wish I knew more about my 2nd great grandmother (Loran's daughter, Mollie (Polly). She died in childbirth in 1879. Loran had lots of children, didn't he? Glad we found each other, cousin!
