Bio and Links
Bio Photo My husband and I live in Houston, TX. I Became interested in genealogy back in the early 80S, corresponding with a cousin of my father's in Indiana. Our home flooded in 1989 and I guess I lost interest because so many of my records were destroyed. I did have most of it typed and printed and that was saved. Because of my brother-in-law's interest in what I had gathered on the Matchett family, my interest has been renewed and now I'm doing more research on my own family genealogy - Dunlap.

I posted Sarah's photo at Graceland, Knoxville, along with husband, George W., also Mamie, Arthur, & Mary Josie. There is already a photo for Rasty at Pleasantville, or are you looking for a closer picture?

Newman, George & Barbara
Thank you for sharing the photos of George & Barbara. They are my 4th great grandparents and it is a treasure to know what they looked like.

RE: Keeler Family
From everything I've read, there's only the few stones at the Keeler cemetery. I've tried tirelessly to find out where Emma & Harriet are buried and have yet to had any luck. My guess is that they are buried @ Lewis Creek or Keeler without headstones or perhaps headstones that are no longer ledgible. If I ever run across them I'll let you know :)

I was also wondering if the added photo is of Samuel Jones or Mr. Benson.

If this is Samuel, could I possibly get a copy for my MOL?

Ora & Nancy Jones
I see you added the names of their children, and I'm wondering if their female child is Zora Etta, or is this two different children (Zora and Etta?

Ora C Jones is my Mother-in-Law's great-great grandfather, and he married a lady named Ora Gillespie.

Odd that they both had the same first name.
