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

RE: Thomas - 81084947
Totally understandable. Putting Johnnie as the nickname is what I should have suggested. However, I didn't notice until just now that you have him and his wife in the wrong cemetery. I took the photos at Resthaven West and you have them in Resthaven East. Could you please move them? Thanks!

RE: Slaughter
Tammy I tried sending you the obit, but guess I don't have your e mail address to scan it to.

RE: Chittick
Hi Tammy - Yes, sometimes you get on a slippery slope when the data doesn't have documentation to back it up. I myself need to do a better job of at least noting reasons for what I put out to the public if it's not substantiated. Unfortunately I'm not close to the Chitticks and don't know much about them beyond my grandmother. I'm always looking for some tidbit of information that may come along. My father (still alive at 94) thinks James' wife was named Fanny Van Doren. There is one that lived about the same time in Ohio. When I showed that to him he said that wasn't her. I believe I have the census records for the right family on Ancestry though. My main project is to establish that Fredrick Guy Chittick is James Chittick's son. So far I have no proof that he connects to my family. Thanks for taking some time to help me tie up loose ends.

RE: Chittick
Hi Tammy - So if I understand, you haven't been to the cemetery, but created Find A Grave memorials for them per the information here?:
I didn't see the death cert on Find A Grave, but that's OK as I already have it. In fact, you may have found it while searching because it's in my public tree there (user "cmartinsen_1"). I noticed some additional information has been added to Find A Grave. Specifically James' middle name (Clinton, not Cinton) and Frances' middle and maiden names. Did you also get those from searching If so, those are in my tree as well, but I believe them to be unverified as they were in a family tree by user "jimholderfield1". I have tried to contact him for verification, but he's not responding. I keep the information in my tree in case documents pop up that may prove or disprove the information.

John Newton Yardley is my maternal Great-Great-Great Grandpa. His findagrave# is 132436644. I was wondering if you would consider transferring his memorial to me?

We have to be very distant cousins

Marincy Knowles was my 1st cousin, 3 x removed.
And although I am related to many other Fussells, I am not related to George.

I have linked Marincy to her parents and thank you for finding her for me.

With gratitude,
Robin Knowles Miner in Alabama
