Bio Photo About Me
As a retired teacher, I've found a bit of time to get back into genealogy. I think I've become addicted to FindaGrave. What a fabulous site! I enjoy setting up and maintaining memorials for my loved ones, as well as others. I also enjoy being a volunteer and taking pictures of headstones to fulfill requests!

My photo shows what I love most -- visiting those little old cemeteries.

My People
My family trees include: Hill, Sells, Winningham, Wright, Ledbetter, McDonald, Cook, Hymers, Morton, Douglas, Murphy, Clayton, Flowers, Galloway, Schatz, Harris, Wallis, Baker, Kupilik.

Making Requests
Please remember to use the EDIT button on memorial pages to offer suggestions, corrections, and even questions regarding specific memorials. Also please remember that no one is perfect -- we all make mistakes.

My Photos
Please feel free to use any headstone photos that I take and upload to FindaGrave memorials for your personal non-commercial use.

Traci's Mom
Token you left for Traci Fields
Thank you very much for the token you left for my angel daughter Traci. She was a wonderful gift from GOD, and she's in my heart and mind every single day. Her passing has left major holes in the hearts of her family and friends.

I appreciate you helping to reach my goal of 5,000 tokens by her birthday, November 20th. Actually, thanks to you and other findagravers, so far today Traci has received 6,026 flowers/tokens. That makes my family and I extremely happy. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

I'm thankful and blessed for your kindness. GOD bless you for your heavenly heart.

I am so overwhelmed with all the findagrave friends requesting flowers/tokens for my Traci. Thank you ever so much!

This is something I wrote for Traci:

It was a cold, quiet night at the cemetery. The snow was falling gently to the ground. The only sound that could be heard was the whistling of the wind. Off in the distance I suddenly heard the tiny sound of jingling bells. I looked around and wondered where the life was in the stillness of this cemetery.

As I gazed around, I saw a ray of moonbeam shining down on a small Christmas tree.

I thought to myself, "This is where the life is in the cemetery!"

Ring the bells this holiday season in memory of those you love.

RE: Dates vary so will mileage
Thanks! I am the daughter of William Floyd Sells born in Byrdstown. His father was John Cato aka Johnnie Kato Sells buried down there somewhere too. His dad was Solomon Clayton and mother was Laura Ann Jones Sells. I have a great PDF I'd be happy to share with you if you'd send me your email. I'm :) I grew up with my mother's mother's people in Jackson County Alabama outside Stevenson, but my best fried up here is Becky Bilbrey whose dad was Clyde Lee and Mother was Betty June Ledbetter Bilbrey. We laughed because surely we are related and I know she is related to relatives as he aunt married a relation.

Thanks again,

Dates vary so will mileage
Hi. I think we must be distantly related. :) Thanks for keeping records and sharing them. The dates I have found in several sites had the birth years off by at least 10 years. It's humbling to see all the generations and touching to learn something personal about them. Thanks again.

I noticed that you have a death date of 1890. My previous information showed 1850. Can you please confirm the 1890 date with documentation? Cemetery record? I'm seeking for DAR status. Thanks

Sophronia Cannady

I think the gravestone for Sophronia is Mother. According to Death certificate ( #13778) dates 28 Sept 1844 18 Sept 1918.

RE: Gunter Cemetery
We have 3 grandkids we didn't have when we moved to TN and we get to see them maybe 3 times a year. Now they'll be 2 hours away. And we've got his son about 5 miles from where we'll be, so they can golf and get stupid together. Not looking forward to the gray, cold winters up there but...

RE: Gunter Cemetery
Thanks Sharyl - we hope so too. I'll still be doing some connect the dots on Tn memorials since it's too cold to work anywhere outside up there during the winter. Lots of things I'll miss here, but we're heading home to the kids.

I believe you have placed this photo on the wrong memorial. Middle initial, birth and death dates, wife do not match. Please transfer your photo to memorial #42152039. Thanks ~ Jo C
