Bio and Links
I have much larger pictures of all the stones, just let me know what name and cemetery, in a private email.

I have had many dna tests, the latest put my ancestral home as Scotland or England.
I am an R1b1a2a1a6e, R-P312+, DF-88+, DF19+.

I am finding that my male ancestors were a fighting bunch. My direct line has participated in every war including the revolution. I have applied for membership in the Sons of Confederate Veterans, thanks to my 2nd great grandfather, who served with the 65th Georgia Volunteer Army of Tennessee. My 4th great grandfather served in the Revolutionary War. My father was in Korea, Vietnam, and I was in the cold war and Desert Shield/Storm. I am a retired US Navy Electronics Technician Chief Petty Officer, I was stationed in Guam on the USS Proteus AS-19, I was a Cryptographic Electronics Instructor at Combat Systems Technical Schools Command at Mare Island, Vallejo CA, I wintered over in McMurdo, Antarctica 86-87, and was stationed onboard the USS Peleliu LHA-5 during Desert Shield and Desert Storm.

Interested in Gunn's everywhere. I seem to be finding them every place I look.

If I post a picture on your memorial and there's a picture already there from someone else, it's because some pictures are unreadable, the stone has changed, the stone has been cleaned or some other harmless reason. I'm not trying to out photograph anyone, I am trying to preserve the information. If you don't like the extra picture I will gladly remove it, just let me know.

If you use Family Tree Maker you can add a info block for Find a Grave memorial numbers, comes in handy when you get conflicting info. Not that a grave stone is always correct.

Bill - thanks for your message on the spelling (Yocum vs Yocom). What I think this comes down to is that the name evolved as the different lines of the family moved west. Personally I have seen this last name spelled as Jochem, Yoakum, Yocum, and Yocom. For names what I generally go with is what I have found on census or other records. In the case of the Yocum's around Coles county I have relied on census and military records, county histories, and correspondence with "Yocum" descendants (among others). Thanks again for your note!

Per your request I transferred all of the Yocom's to your. By the way, don't call me names again.

I'll remember your last name and omit any I find in the future.

RE: Yocum/Yocom
I manage over 45000 memorials. There are errors for many reasons:
1. OCR import errors
2. Human error (mine)
3. Human error (submitted by another researcher)
4. Multiple spellings for particular surnames (many people were illiterate until the 20th century, so cemetery records sometimes differ from headstone spellings)
5. Human error (stonecarver on headstone)

Please be assured that I am not intentionally targeting Yocoms for intentional misspelling. If you have corrections, please feel free to use the "Edit" functions on the memorials that are in error.

RE: Yocum/Yocom
I appreciate you correcting them....I think my slight case of dyslexia may have had something to do with it. I usually catch myself. Thanks again!!

RE: Yocum/Yocom
The Yocum family, spelled with many variations, included relates of the Yocum gang. I am sure we must be related. The closest Yocum related to me is Mary Yocum Allen.

I'll be sure to remember your name avoid your memorials from now on. I forgot you have your own way of doing things. As for my memorials, I can't find one that is entered incorrectly. I'd appreciate you pointing out the ones that need correcting.

RE: Thomas Odell Kennedy
I know it was in error because Robert and Willie Mae Kennedy are my parents and I only have 2 brothers and one sister. Only my brother and I are still alive. The dates do not add up either.

I contacted Faye and hope this gets resolved.
