Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been researching my family tree for many many years now. I grew up in Memphis but haven't lived there in over 35 yrs.
I found this site in order to help me in my family tree research, it's been a great tool and in some ways, a nightmare...
I only do memorials for my family tree, my hubby's whose tree I research for he's not into genealogy and also my x's tree for our children together, ditto for him.
I want everyone out there to know that if I have a photo put on any memorial whether I manage the memorial or not then it is yours to share. I will not be so very selfish that I think I own the photos from my family trees, they belong to me and all who are connected to me via my family tree...
I don't know if many of you do family tree research, seems many are just into listing where people are buried, but that's a dead body and that person had a history. So I want my family tree listings, if you aren't connected to my family tree then they don't belong to you, they belong to me and my cousins.
I'm into the life before death and many photos were taken by the eldest children of the families. So many families split up after the Civil War to move North and West to make livings for their families that could no longer be done where they were born and raised in the South. So share your old photos, it won't hurt you...

About Eli Blakely
Hello, Eli Blakely is my 3rd Great Grandfather. Related through his second marriage to Susan Ann Tindall (1822-1910), and they had a daughter, Sarah Francis Blakely, born abt 1860/1861, in Choctaw, Mississippi; died 20 Jul 1949, in Pottawatomie, Oklahoma. Sarah is my second Great Grandmother.
Eli and Susan married about 1862, in Choctaw, Mississippi. It didn't last long, because as of
the 1870 Census, they were living apart. Susan was listed as head of household (1870 Census), with her and Eli's daughter, Sarah F. Blakely, and 3 of her kids from her 1st marriage and two small grandchildren. Susan's first husband was Jacob John Sparkman (1815-1860).
Sarah Francis Blakely married Frances Marcus Gentry
7 Oct 1878, in Webster, Mississippi. Their third child, Wister Allen Gentry, born 30 Dec 1881 in Webster, Mississippi, died 30 Jul 1945 in Los Angeles, California. Wister married(1st)
Tommie Della Nichols on 4 Jul 1907. Their first son, Elmer Fletcher Gentry, is my Grandfather. Elmer was born in 1908, in Shawnee, Oklahoma, and died in 1957 in Los Angeles, California. His second marriage was to my Grandma Dorothy. Their daughter was my mother (deceased). Their son (my uncle), is still living. My Grandma told me that Elmer had his name changed to Michael Elmer Gentry, because he hated his middle name, Fletcher.

I would like to connect with you, if that is possible!!! thank you,

Linda
