Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am married I have three children and one grandchild:I am the baby girl of eight children born to Ellis and Maxine Slavens Woods. While growing up family history was never spoken about. I never had the privilege of knowing my grandparents so it made me have a desire to know where I came from. My research started my senior year of high school when a secretary in the school gave me four family group sheet telling me to document as much history from family members as possible. I still have those pages after all these years. One of my main goals at the time was to find family who might have a picture of my grandfather James Jarrett Woods. I still have not found a picture but the many lines that I have connected and the family and distant cousins I have meet along the way has been priceless. I would like to thank those who have been so gracious to help me along my journey. ----------------
My ancestors on my fathers Line is Woods, Davis, Bolinger, Hayes, Newberry, Terry, Newport My ancestors on my mothers line are Slavens, Ussery, Morrison, Taylor, Moore, Edwards, Holts, Campbell, Young, Ford, White, From my 1st marriage into Mashburn family and my oldest daughters lineage is Mashburn, Jay, Nutt, Landers and Mason , Robbirds- Robirds, Roberts , Ford, Friend, My sister marrried a Stockstill and Stockstill ties into my daughters heritage also. My oldest daughters heritage is just important to me as my other children. I may not be married into the family anymore but she is still a part of it, Sad that a family member of this line has forgotten. I will pass my daughters heritage to her some day. My 2nd husband's lineage is Montgomery, Chandler and Smith ================

Remember.........That which you share, multiplies and divides. That which you withhold, diminishes and dies. W. Clement Stone-----------

Do your best to share your time, your knowledge, your pictures, your entries. Hoarding names helps no one and they remain basically a naked name with hopefully some part of a date - nothing else ____________

There are many other names that I have researched and connected on FAG that are limbs off of my main line. All are family to me. -----

Romans 2:1-3 You, have no excuse, you who pass judgment on someone else, for at whatever point you judge the other, you are condemning yourself, because you who pass judgment do the same things. Now we know that God's judgment against those who do such things is based on truth. 3 So when you, a mere man, pass judgment on them and yet do the same things, do you think you will escape God's judgment?===============

Warning---Searching for Family Tree information can be addictive. -- Always wonder about where you are going, but NEVER forget where you came from?? -- "Let US before WE die, gather up OUR heritage and offer it to OUR children" Unknown Author===================

"Those we love don't go away...They walk beside us every day...Unseen, unheard, but always near...Still loved, still missed and very dear."----------

Life has it's ups and downs, sometimes happiness and sometimes sorrow, but we must not ever forget the people who have gone before us. Their trails were more difficult and their losses many, but with out their efforts and struggles, you and I wouldn't be here.============

Your tombstone stands among the rest;neglected and aloneThe name and date are chiseled outon polished, marbled stoneIt reaches out to all who careIt is too late to mournYou did not know that I'd existYou died and I was born.Yet each of us are cells of youin flesh, in blood, in bone.Our blood contracts and beats a pulseentirely not our own.Dear Ancestor, the place you filledone hundred years agoSpreads out among the ones you leftwho would have loved you so.I wonder if you lived and loved,I wonder if you knewThat someday I would find this spot,and come to visit you.

Dear P. Do you by any chance have any information about the Rogers that married the Rev. Asa Newport of Rhea? County, TN? I am working on that family line in East Tn (some of my Rogers were in Blount in the early 1800 years). Thank you.

Henry Clay Allen
Thank you for adding Henry Clay Allen's WW1 draft card and other information to his memorial. He married my great great grandmother Addie Eubanks after her husband Samuel Porter passed. Some family members say Henry and Addie married each other twice but I'm not sure if that is true. Do you happen to be related?

Etta C Lowder Tackett
Etta C Lowder Tackett Memorial# 66487837

PS: Thank you for the suggest a correction you sent me. I did know her husband spelled his name "Tackett" but what you did was cause me to re-examine her marriage certificate. Comparing all the E's in the court clerk's hand writing, what I thought was an I (eye) was yes, a E. So not only did the stone cutter mispell Married (Marred) he mispelled her name "tackitt"

I've made the corrections and posted a note.
