Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am interested in researching JETT/GARRISON families mainly in Iowa/Tennessee/Kentucky/Oklahoma/Missouri/Arkansas/Texas and Virginia and Murphy/Organ/Gorvin families

I WOULD BE HAPPY TO TRANSFER ANY MEMORIAL! Just ask

"Dear Ancestor"

Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished, marbled stone.

It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born.

Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.

Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.

I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.

BOBBY:

Me again... could you add dates to Kirk Fairall's listing?

Birth: Jul 1882

Kirk and another young boy died tragically in a fire that was accidentally started in the family barn while playing with friends. His father is Herbert Snowden Fairall, Sr (1854-1907); his mother is Lillian S. Adams Fairall (1856-1927); his siblings are: Herbert Snowden Fairall, MD (1878-1914) and Henrietta Adams Fairall (1879-1977).

BOBBY:

THANKS SO MUCH for revising the listing for Mae Eveline Fairall... SO QUICKLY !!
Is it possible to add dates?

Birth: Jan 1850
Death: Mar 1924

Also... could you revise the word 'spinster' to 'devoted' music teacher (piano)

I did not know that you would add my comments to her listing... probably my use of the word 'spinster' was not kind.

THANKS... ALIX

Mae Heard (Oakland Cemetery)

Mem: 94886981 Mae Heard (Oakland Cemetery..Iowa)

FANTASTIC to find Mae's headstone. (I discovered the listing while researching her sister, Anna Rachel Fairall Heard). Is it possible to revise the listing for Mae to 'Mae Eveline Fairall'? Mae was a spinster music teacher and was the last living member of her 'Fairall' family in Iowa City IA. Her father was Truman Fairall (1799-1869); her mother was Mary Pusey Husband Fairall (1810-1892); her siblings were: Anna Rachel Fairall Heard (1828-1910; Martha 'Mattie I. Fairall Fickey (1832-1911); Samuel Husband Fairall (1835-1909); Herman Harrison Fairall (1840-1912); Herbert Snowden Fairall (1854-1907).
FIND-A-GRAVE has been so very helpful in my research. Your work is very much appreciated. In many cases, the only photos that I have of past relatives are from FIND-A-GRAVE.

THANKS... ALIX

Correction Of Names
Hi Bobby, Thank you for all your hard work in preserving the family history. I just saw #81935667, James Bynum page, his correct name is"James Monroe Bynum" not Mae, and his wife is"Etta Dona Jett Bynum" only one n in Dona. You have really done an outstanding job in all you have gathered, thank you, Diane Bynum

RE: Selden Jett Cemetery
Hey Bobby, just give me a few weeks to start again on the family tree - had to put my mom's house up for sale so she can move in with me so everything is crazy right now. I will be glad to help any way I can. There are if I remember correctly 7 graves on the Beach Farm cemetery. My dad's brother and sister are buried there. Just give me a little time to get my mom settled and I will figure it out for you. And this spring if you want me to take you up there will be glad too. Also to the Sid Jett one and the Seldon Jett one. Take care and will talk to you soon.
