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 sprouted 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.

UPDATE: Several Lyle family members have volunteered to help clean up the Lyle Cemetery Saturday April 28, 2016! A wonderful granite stone has been erected by the land owner marking Lyle Cemetery.

I looked up the death certificate and understand what you are saying. Perhaps you would like to rewrite the bio. Just edit what is in findagrave and resend it. I am afraid I will just make things worse if I try to fix it.

Hi Barbara,

I appreciate your edits, but have just been mired down in things other than Find A Grave lately. Plan to catch up soon on adding the additional information you've been sending.

Thank you for the information on Annie Estelle Poe Moore Gilliam. Are you related to her. Her mother. Martha Jane Shaw Poe was a sister to my wife's great-grandfather, Charles Wilder Shaw.

Thank you for the kind words. The Castleberry Clan are relatives of my deceased sister-in-law. Genealogy research is addictive and like solving a puzzle at times. Wishing you great success with your research. Find A Grave members are nice friends and we all like helping fellow members.

RE: Frances Jane Houston Cornelius Smith
Barbara, You are most welcome. I am so sorry about not responding before now. I visit Find a Grave almost everyday but I never log in. Consequently I have messages all the way back to 2011 that I didn't know I had. I found them all today by accident and I wasn't loged in then either.
