Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi I'm Tammy. I have been doing my family genealogy for about number of years now. I am a researcher at heart. My major in college was history, particularly Early American.

In my spare time I do genealogy, in my spare-spare time I run 10ks and 1/2 marathons. I find running to be daunting, arduous and, at times, painful but there is nothing like a 10-15 mile run at 5am on a Sunday morning to clear your mind and ready it for the coming week. I have even solved some genealogy roadblocks while running. :)

When I visit cemeteries I am generally there to take pictures of family members or family friends but try to also take pictures of anyone located near by to upload to the site in hopes to help others in their research quests.

My direct family lines are Jenkins, Hammond, Pate, Powell, Dake, Capehart, Hays, Jump, Billings, Zumwalt, Pumphrey, Fussell & Carr

I have really enjoyed this site. It has helped me out in big ways with piecing together missing information in my family tree. I hope some of my entries are just as helpful to other researchers.

If anyone has any questions about any of my entries or pictures/document uploads I am always happy to discuss and make necessary changes.


I have decided to go thru all the memorials I manage and do a detailed search of each and try to provide as much accurate information as possible. At this point I have COMPLETED all the memorials (under my management) in the following cemeteries:

Fountain Cemetery (116 of 571) - Dewey County, OK [March 2014]

Currently working on:

Brumfield Cemetery - Dewey County, OK
Baptist Cemetery (4 or 7) - Halifax County, NC

John Early Fussell

John Early Fussell is my 2nd great grandfather. You mentioned something about a link with information about the marriage between John Early Fussell and Martha J Turner. I was wondering if you could send me this link?

Ulyster Embree
Hi Tammy,

Ulyster's death certificate states he was buried at Roselawn Cemetery. I created a memorial for him in 2012 at this cemetery. I noticed you have also made a memorial but have him at Mount Olivet. Do you have knowledge that he was buried there?

Thanks so much,

You are absolutely right and Thank you for catching my error. Can't keep all the John Henry Jumps clear in this family. Gets confusing at times.

RE: Caswell
Thank you. I appreciate your timely response to making the changes. I got into this yesterday as a result of a conversation with a fellow classmate. She and I were both classmates of Donna Caswell who died when we were in High School. I recall Donna being a very nice person and thought it would be nice to get her connected to her family. I was not able to find her mother but found several other relatives. I noticed that very few of the Caswells were connected and there was a lot of missing information so I decided to clean it up as much as possible.

RE: Towler - 136724299
Oh Tammy that's much better! I'm glad you agree with me. You know, if you read about it under "Help" it really doesn't give a specific definition of "graphic" but I think a good rule of thumb would be, if it is from a news article rather than an obituary, it tends to be a lot more insensitive to the feelings of family members. Also, the "Help" section tells us to remove the names of surviving family members, but what if the obit is 50 years old? There is no way of being 100% on that, but here is what I think (judging on what I've read on the Discussion Forums) if the decedent's 3 closest generations are possibly of the age to still be among the living, then leave their names out. On very old obituaries, I wouldn't worry about it.

Thanks for getting back to me.

Best regards,
