Bio and Links
Bio Photo Some prominent names in my family tree are:

Barnes-Green-Sindle-Porter-Purvis-McNutt-Hall-Jones

I grew up in Arkansas, but I have spent 30 years in North Carolina. I began researching my family's history about 10 years ago after my Aunt requested I do it in her memory. She lived 90+ years and I thought I owed her that much, but it turned out that I really enjoyed it and love the discovery of family history I never knew existed. Feel free to use any of the photos or information that I have posted on the www.findagrave.com memorials.

I have received some very nasty messages from some of the gravers/historians that contribute here, and I will say upfront, I don’t like “mean” people. I consider bullies to be “mean” people, so you may want to be reflective.

www.findagrave.com is a database and is only as good as the information entered. Duplicates comprise the database and information keyed into the wrong fields will cause the memorial to sort improperly when being queried by users of the database.

I am a MS (multiple sclerosis) warrior and I fight the fight everyday. I have progressive MS and am unable to go out and research like I would if I were not ill, but I do what I can when I can. I have a huge family and hundreds of relatives so there is always something to work on.

I will help anyone in any way I can in their search, so if you have any suggestions or questions, please let me know. I am not a “historical glory hound” so I am not trying to amass as many memorials as I can. I will transfer or change as necessary unless they are my close family as well. My main goal is to preserve as much historical data as possible by populating the www.findagrave.com database with correct information. Once were gone, it may be lost forever unless we record it for prosperity.

www.findagrave.com developed the “edit” options in order for us to share corrections more easily. When someone asks for an edit, there is probably a very good reason for the request and it only requires the contributor to push a button to accept.


Happy Hunting!!!

There was a duplicate of Mr. Ray in Chapel Hill. I deleted mine.

If a person is not retired or KIA the rank is not to be used in the title. I was not aware of these government guidelines until recently.

Below is information regarding the government guidelines. I follow this. If they are retired I am happy to use the rank. Otherwise I don't.

The information below is what I go by as it is prohibited to use the military except for particular situations. "Use of rank/rating is reserved for those who retire. Officers and enlisted personnel who resign their rank/rating (discharged) are prohibited from using them as a part of their name after their service. If they are killed in action, of course, they would continue to use the rank as they were never discharged." If you Google the question there are many articles and protocol to review.

# 9908445 George Samuel Lamb
Hello, I am researching the Lamb family for a friend. The bio for this man says he is the son of George Arthur Lamb and Rosie House but I believe he is the son of Thomas Franklin Lamb and Clementine Hollowell and born in Lafayette Co. Mississippi. He lived in Van Zandt Co. Texas before marrying and moving to Arkansas.
I know you didn't create the original but hope you can help with this.
Thanks, Don Rubarts Find A Grave (#46951019)

Wright in Madden Cemetery, OK
I will accept your edit to add a period on D Wright, but I can't guarantee you that I won't get another edit from someone else asking me to delete it. I have been berated for doing it either way, some will be unhappy for the period being there, and others want it to be there. If you have a definitive quote as to "chapter and verse," it would come in useful for future reference, considering all the grief this issue seems to cause. Thank you.

William Orr
This is my first time to respond to a posting on Find A Grave. I am researching my Means family, also from the Hampton, Arkansas area. I found a William Orr (1795-1855) buried in the Spring Grove Cemetary in Cincinnati, Ohio, and wondered where and why this posting came from? There is also a photo of William Orr. While I would love to claim him as my gggrandfather, I think the William Orr buried in the Means Cemetary in Arkansas is the correct ancestor. Can you help me get this Cincinnati gravesite with photo straightened out?

I appreciate all the work you and the other volunteers do for us descendants.

RE: Memorial #9915569
Ms. Green-Starnes:

Thank you for answering my memo - Mattie Garner Sims, Memorial #9915569, in Stoney Point Cemetery, is one person, and my Mattie E. Williams, Memorial #7252777, Sparkman Cemetery, is not the same person. However, on the Find-a-grave site for #9915569, they have part of the information from my #7252777.
Parents, Thomas H. Garner and Annie Elizabeth Crouse Garner, and siblings listed, do not belong to Memorial 9915569.
Apparently, there were two Mattie Garner's in Dallas County. #9915569, married Robert Lee Sims, 29 June 1902.
#7252777, married James A. Williams, 03 July 1901.
I have documentation for my #7252777. My Mattie had the siblings as follows, Mary A., John Thomas, Liller Kate (my Grandmother), Annie Elizabeth, and Esker J.. If I can be of further help let me know. Shelby Lea Mayhew
