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.
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.
RE: Henley Maddox-Turkey CreekBC Cemetery I just read the marker and realized I had the photo on the wrong memorial. I posted the photo on Jenett Maddox’s memorial. Her name is spelled Jinnett L. Maddox on my picture.
so indebted to find a grave A year ago or more I contacted find a grave to help me find my deceased love of my life grave side. He was buried many miles from my hometown and shocking to find out he had passed and buried for months before I even knew. How devastating for me. I was hurting in the worst way. I came upon tis site that was the answer to my prayers that I could know where my heart is resting.for a lot of reasons that gave me some peace. Thank you so much. I cherish this for I will never forget Tony. He was everything to me. And I miss him so so much. I love you Tony
RE: Sarah Elizabeth Sallie Orfield Jackson He talked about his maternal grandfather Marion Jackson and about his uncles Charlie, Horlsey, Ambrose, and Joe. He was closest to his grandfather and Joe. Uncle Ambrose and Uncle Joe were the only ones I ever met. Also his Aunt Mag Noonkester on his father's side married Bill Harmon, Marion Jackson's nephew. Which one are you descended from?
RE: Sarah Elizabeth Sallie Orfield Jackson Hi Penny, I've made the correction on Sallie's memorial page. It was a typo. I'm delighted to meet a new relative! Marion Jackson was my great-grandfather. I never met him, but my father loved him dearly. Carol
