Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in Texas during WWII to a Texan mother and Mississippi father. I have searched graves from Virginia to Texas exploring their families and those of my Claiborne/Taylor/Lyle husband from Tennessee. I'm currently active with my Tynes, Rogers, Pounds, Williams, Robison folks from Mississippi, Arkansas and Texas, and would like to learn more about the Weatherman and Guynn families in Virginia and North Carolina, (families of my daughter-in-law).

To me, the people I search are more than dates on stone - they are family waiting for someone to tell their stories. I enjoy linking them to their parents and children. Like a family reunion for the dead.

I am not able now to travel and search cemeteries myself, and therefore I am extremely pleased to see other volunteers finding my family. They are real heroes to me. I am always happy to transfer family members to more direct descendants. But I will not transfer to a "Society" for genealogical purposes only. They deserve to be honored by their own family.

I am currently seeking help to restore and preserve the LYLE CEMETERY north of Winder, Georgia, with the grave of Revolutionary War Pvt Maher Shallal Hashbaz Lyle. Too long neglected, this cemetery has trees growing up throught the broken vaults; saplings, seedlings and brush sprout between visits. It is too much for me and the two Lyle cousins who have been working because we are in our seventies with bad backs and knees etc. and the younger folks who are proud of their Lyle lineage should take this job over. Please contact me if you are interested.

Do you know if they were kin to the Williamsons, Craigs or greens or why they are buried there?

RE: Ellis LaVoyd Taylor
Barbara, thanks so much for your help!! The funeral home confirmed his remains will be buried this year during the Tabernacle Kinfolks Camp Meeting in July, and a marker will be placed. The rep told me she would let me know when the marker was placed so I could go and photograph it. Your help with family connections is much appreciated!! Jane

Ellis LaVoyd Taylor
Hi, Barbara.

Ellis LaVoyd Taylor has died. He is being cremated, and the family is having a memorial service out at Tabernacle Church.

His parents are George and Ins (Ina??) Dell Sanderson Taylor.

Ellis grew up in Memphis.

I have posted a Findagrave memorial page in the Tabernacle cemetery until I can find his parents, after which I will change his status to cremated and connect him to his parents.

Do you have any idea who Ellis is and where his parents are buried?

Thank you in advance for any help you can give me.

I updated the memorial. I added that he married in Roane County. If that is not correct let me know.

Thanks for the update. Louise

RE: John Sevier Compton
Hi Barbara - there's a book called The Heritage of Morgan County Alabama that has information about the Comptons. It says that John S. Compton was in the 28th Alabama Infantry. That book can be found on Worldcat. I've pulled his records from Fold3 and they say he was a private and a teamster in Co. F of the Ala. 28th. The history of the 28th has Co. F in the Battle of Ezra Church, then outside of Atlanta, on the date given for John S.'s death. According to reports, 4 men of the 28th were killed at that battle. I haven't been able find where the names of the 4 men were listed, but I haven't done anything other than a cursory look. In any event, I believe this information about John S. Compton, my ggg grandfather, to be correct. In any event, you may want to look at this possibility.
