Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a native of western NC, a semi-retired educator, book, nature, and animal lover, gardener, collector of vintage children's books, artist, photographer, and proudly addicted to genealogical research.

Our lineage includes the following family names, listed alphabetically: Black, Blount, Brickey, Brooke, Burnet, Cable, Caffee, Carringer, Chapman, Colt, Crisp, Dennis, Dewey, Fauntleroy, Folger, Fye, Gaylord, Gordon, Hardy, Henderson, Hickman, Hoffman (or Hoffmann), Hogle, Hogue, Hoyne, Irish, Jenkins, Keyser, Knott, Kreider, Leslie, Lovin (or Loving), Lull, Lynd, MacDonald, Macy, McCallum, McClure, McCray, Mease, Messer, Mosteller, Odom, Owenby, Peale, Penland, Phelps, Quinn, Robbins, Rogers, Schnebly, Snow, Staughton, Stuman, Swem, Temple, Williamson, and Wright.

I don't mind photographs I have posted showing up at other genealogical locations such as Ancestry, but I do ask that they be properly cited. Thank you.

Many, many thanks to my fellow Gravers who have stopped by the memorials for my parents, my husband's parents, and any other members of our family and left flowers and notes. You are wonderful people!

RE: Robert Bruce Carringer
It is always an honor to leave a flower for my friends family, loved ones and friends. I know how you feel. My Daddy's birthday is this coming Wednesday. It seems like there is always a Birthday or Angel Day of a loved one. But I am glad we have this site to pay tribute to them.

Brenda, Your message "a Place in Time" by your cousin C. G. Williamson, with Chapter on Gribble Trek to Colorado. Where can I obtain a copy of this Chapter? I have researched the Gribble family for over 35 years. I was the first to prove lineage to Thomas Gribble for DAR membership. John G. Gribble was a special brother to my 3rd great grandmother Sarah Gribble wife of Thomas S. Monteith. I have copies of letters Sarah and Thomas and their son John wrote to John G. Gribble in 1844 in MO and 1852 and 1866 in OR. Betty Andrews

RE: Your Beloved Dooney
Hi Brenda, Thank You for your kind thoughts and message. My two other cats look for Doonbug. My Dusty actually sounds like he's crying at times. It's so pitiful. I almost cry myself. I know animals grieve. It will take time and the pain will lessen. I do thank god he didn't suffer the vet said he died from old age. I had had all 3 cats at the vets 6 weeks prior for rabie shots and their annual exams and everyone was in good health. I guess that's why it shocked me to find him gone I didn't expect it. Thanks again your friend Diana.
