|Bio and Links|
I live in Memphis, TN. Both my parents were born in the area around the very small town of Finger in McNairy County in West Tennessee. I became interested in my ancestors in January 2010, when a church friend sent me an old family photo which was taken about 1892. Her great grandmother was in the picture and she thought one of the younger brothers in the photo might be my grandfather. He was! |
The photo was my great-grandparents and their 10 children (before the 11th was born) and all the names had been written on that old photo! That photo really got my attention and I wanted to find more about each one of my grandfather's siblings. Sadly, I did not get to visit with my grandparents very often and I am the only OLD person left in my family : ) so there is no one to remember, no one left to ask questions. So I started researching. I am so thankful someone had the wisdom to write all the names on that old photo. Without those names I would have had no place to start.
It is so important to write names and dates on your photos!! I have tried to do this through the years – regretfully I have missed many and have had to estimate or guess about them. I am in the process of scanning all my pictures to make a ‘family photo journal' CD so each of my children and grandchildren can have a copy. Now I will add our family genealogy records so they will know about their ancestors.
I was excited to learn about Findagrave where I can make lasting memorials to my ancestors so they will not be lost and forever forgotten to the ages. I am thankful for Findagrave and Family Search especially, and all their wonderful volunteers who have helped so much in my research.

|Tom Owen||Memorial Park in Memphis|
Earlier this year you requested a grave photo at Memorial Park Cemetery in Memphis. This cemetery is quite large and without a plot location it is near impossible to just stumble upon a requested grave.
I am happy to try to fulfill your request though if you will contact the office and ask for the plot location.
Just let me know, or post the plot on the memorial and I will try to fulfill it in the near future
The office can be reached at (901) 767-8930

|Leslie Ashby||RE: Isaac and Julia Mae Ashby|
Sorry took a long time to respond, I don't know what happened to Charles "Jack" Ashby but I do know he has passed. I can't find out much about Julia's parents.
|melissa brown||RE: Mary Thompson|
You are very welcome Shirley. I have added the pic to James memorial as well like you asked.
|Robert Woolfolk||RE: Mary Woolfolk|
Wish I had a better picture. This came from a video I took in 1995. Are you related? Mary Woolfolk is my gg-grandmother.
|Donna Spears||RE: Thoughts on Divine Providence|
As I explained in a subsequent communication with you, I misread Stephan' bio. In each bio (Hosea and Stephan) the sentence referencing the book begins, "In his book...". The first time I read the bios, I missed "Hosea" in Stephan's bio. I am clear now that Hosea wrote the book.
Thank you, Joe
