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. Looking for Ashley and Allender for the mother of his children. 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, also. But I will not transfer to a "Society" for genealogical purposes only. They deserve to be honored by their own family.

I've linked him to the people you suggested. If he's a relative of yours, I'd be happy to transfer him to you.

I transferred Margaret Kilby and her children to you.

I also sent you an e-mail with numerous great cemetery/genealogy links in Suffolk, Nansemond, Isle of Wight and Southampton County, VA. You may want to check your e-mail since I received an automatic reply that you direct all your e-mail to a spam account.

I have transferred them over to you to add what you have found. They are no relation to me, just happened to take a picture of their stones when I was there looking for some kin.

Hi Barbara,

Thank you for the additional information on the subject memorials. I think that I made all your requested changes but, if you find that I missed anything or added something incorrectly, please let me know.

I am not related to any of these people so, if you are related and you would like a transfer, please let me know. Cedar Hill is my favorite cemetery and whenever I do a request there I always end up coming home with a few hundred pictures. I'm always glad, however, to turn over any memorials that I create to family members.

Best Wishes,
Jeff (Jake Dog)

RE: Frank James Neal Whisenant family
Do you know WHERE he died?
Added by Deb on Dec 10, 2013 11:55 AM
Your scenario on the Whisenant names sounds about right - what exactly was it you wanted added to his pg, or perhaps the other names?
