Bio and Links
Bio Photo My husband and I have been researching our family history since 1980 and learn something new every day. It is not easy and there's a lot of misinformation out there. Be sure of your records; get several verifications and have fun. Most of all be courteous - most of the people you will meet are volunteers and will go out of their way to help you.

Most of the entries are ancesters, close friends of my Mom and Dad or members of our parish family. I am happy to add bios, connect to other family members or assist with family lines. Because I have transferred some and have had them severely altered I would rather not transfer further.

I have no objection to use of pictures I have added.

Lillian Swift Biddison.
Thank you so much for the information. This is an odd coincidence that Lillian was my own mother's name, (Swift is from my father's side), she was also born Aug 22, and her mother's name was Gladys. It is all a tapestry!

RE: Rhoda Annie McGraw
I have not found a grave for your great grandmother. Yesterday I did find the grave of John T. Maddux. It is not close to his sister Rhoda. I have a picture of John's marker if you would like it.

RE: Sarah and Isaac Hall
Thank you so very much for making the effort to locate their graves. I really appreciate it. James Hall is not a relative so far as I know but, thanks for making the offer to send me a photo of his gravestone.

Thank You for the pictures of the beautiful beach in Chatham. I can see why some peoples would spread their ashes there. I will be spending two weeks in Chatham in August. Doing some family research there.

Thank You again!!!,

Reg Thompson
