Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi everyone who is a serious family tree researcher as me. 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've lived outside Nashville, TN for well over 20 yrs. now, so much better a place to live.
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'm glad Ancestry took over Find A Grave for they've made it so much simpler in many ways, maybe they will stop the memorial hoarders too.
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 would like to have any memorials connected to us that are kept by people who aren't any kin to them because I will do personal updates for them mostly trying to link them with their parents and children. I find most of the memorial pages on Find A Grave have only what people who have went in and listed from a marker in a cemetery. I sometimes find where a marker was put down yrs. later with guessed at info. for birth and death dates that is often wrong. If the person has a death cert. then that's usually from a close relative such as a parent or spouse and is often more correct. If the person died in a hospital its often info. they gave theirselves when they went into that hospital before their death.
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 who are also into researching their trees.
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...

RE: transferred memorials
I knew where and when Sherwood Jr died but not where he is buried. As for the others you know more than I do. Perhaps more will turn up in time.

RE: Bedford Franklin Lawley # 40177787
There are. I had forgotten about Bedford Franklin. Edwin Bedford was born in 1880. Bedford Franklin in abt 1891? 92? I think Edwin died between 1880 and 1890. We don't have the 1890 census to prove he was gone though and no death record I can find.

RE: Florence & Bedford Lawley
And I'm assuming you know that Edwin and Bedford are the same person, right?

RE: Florence & Bedford Lawley
According to the online directory of the cemetery he is not. Bedford and Julia Lawley are the only Lawleys buried there.

RE: Jennie McBride Lawley
They had family around Wichita County Texas which probably accounts for his dying in that area. I have moved to searching Oklahoma Cemeteries. Perhaps between us we can track him down. There is one family tree on Ancestry with that date and location of death, and I found a post on RootsWeb that matches it, and that is the date my Dad has. (Dad's doesn't give a location nor does he leave a source, it is probably something he read while at the Mormon facility in Utah doing research.) I'm still not entirely convinced and would really like to find a death notice of not a certificate.

RE: Sarah Kuykendall McBride
Absolutely. It is a rewrite/paraphrase of the obituary written by Sterling Price Clement, husband of Stella McBride. I will send that to you when I get finished going through all the documents.
