Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been working on my family tree since April of 2011, and so far have over 10,000 family members. I have learned a lot from doing this and have enjoyed every moment! I have traveled many miles to get photos, information, & many documents! I have met many of my living relatives and would love to bring them all home with me but that is impossible! I embrace each and every one of them as if I had known them my whole life, but have known them, or met SOME only once! My life has been enlightened and enriched by this journey. If you are able to physically do this, please do it before you become disabled. You might be surprised how friendly America really is by doing so. Lots of warm, friendly, helpful, & EXTREMELY nice people out there to help in your journey!

Please remember the rules for using photos that you didn't take yourself. Give credit where credit is due!

Any corrections or transfers will be gladly taken care of.

RE: Shirley Chaney
You're welcome. If I should come across it, I will post a photo if no one else has.

Shirley Chaney
The record book at the Childress Cemetery has Shirley Chaney listed, but the location is blank. Her memorial page says she was cremated and location of ashes unknown. I don't know why her name is listed in the cemetery record book if her ashes aren't buried there. Just thought I would let you know that I've checked for a location but no luck.

RE: Flavie
Hi Penny,

Assuming you are referring to Flavie (Phoebe) Bisaillion, 1827-1920, I have no idea where
the picture came from. She was my 3rd grandmother but she died before I was born. Good luck!

Ann(e) UNKNOWN Owsley
Hi Penny,

I looked over my notes to refresh my memory about Ann(e) UNKNOWN Owsley.

I used the Owsley Family Historical Society website for some of the information I entered on her memorial page.
http://owsleyfamily.tripod.com/thomas-owsley.html

Regarding Anne UNKNOWN Owsley:
The author of the article on this website states, "The notion that she was a member of the West family has been disproven" and then refers to another article posted on the website.

Anne UNKNOWN Owsley married Thomas Owsley, II about 1730, when she was about 23 years old.

Anne UNKNOWN Owsley probably had only the one child, Thomas Owsley, III, born about 1730/1731. Some suggest Thomas Owsley, III was born about 1731/1732.

Anne UNKNOWN Owsley is thought to have died after the birth of Thomas Owsley, III, perhaps in about 1731/1732, or a bit later.

Thomas Owsley, II married widow, Anne Hudson UNKNOWN about 1731/1733. She had a son from her first marriage.

Thomas Owsley, II and Anne Hudson UNKNOWN Owsley had 8 children.

Without actual dates to work with, we may never really know more than we think we know now.

If you have more or better information, please feel free to email me regarding these old Virginia families.

Hope this helps.
Keep diggin'

Photo requests/Oak Ridge Cemetery
The new photo requests you have for Moses Bledsoe (11569923) and Thomas (11570037)and Eliz. Condell (11570029) are unfillable because they have no stones in this large Condell plot. Moses' memorial has a photo of the overall Condell plot and I had added a caption stating that he has no marker. I photographed that large Condell plot as well and am positive there is also no individual stone for Thomas or Elizabeth. If you want me to add the same overall plot photo for Thomas and Elizabeth, please let me know. Otherwise, it would be helpful for you to delete your requests so that others don't spend time looking for stones that aren't there. You can contact me via the memorial for Moses Bledso Condell, 31504096, if you have questions. Thanks.

RE: Nixon Ousley
Penny, I see what you are saying. I don't have my listing for "Nixon" connected to anyone from his listing. I believe John Myer will have to fix it from his listings.

Whaley
Hello! I just saw where you had added a photo of Rev Henry Jackson Whaley to his memorial. He was the brother of my great, great grandfather, William Manley Whaley. I was wondering if they are also your family, and if you have any other photos of anyone from that line. Would love to see them if you do! Thanks so much...

M. Bittle, #131276889, Photo Request
I tried to find the burial marker, this morning, with no luck. It is possible it is buried under dirt and/or leaves and not obvious. If you would please contact the cemetery office to verify there actually is a marker for this lady, I would be happy to return and do a more diligent hunt. In 2014, I actually "worked" this particular section, documenting every burial that was not already recorded. Obviously, I did not find a marker at that time, either. If you do contact the office, I suggest you tell them you have an acquaintance who has offered to photograph your friend/relative's grave, but you need to know if there is anything there. Most of the cemeteries in the Dallas area are not anxious to assist Find A Grave volunteers. Otherwise, I would call them for you. The telephone number is 469) 708-2919. They have an eMail address, on their web site, but I do not know how quickly they respond.
