Bio and Links
Bio Photo As a young girl, my parents would vacation our family on genealogy quests. We would visit relatives, research courthouse records, send out mailings, type out church books, memograph pages to family books, and more. Genealogy is instilled in my blood. I've come to appreciate the lives of my grandparents, grandaunts, granduncles, and cousins; the joys and the hardships. I've seen the records of announcing births, to the celebration of weddings, to the tragedy of death during a war, to the agony of illness, and to the rest of a peaceful death.

I believe that family members should share information and photos that they have about mutual ancestors without hesitation. We don't own our grandparents, ancestors, or their information. I will gladly share information and/or pictures that I have about our mutual ancestors and I hope that you will do the same. I enjoy the kindred spirit of enthusiastic family history conversations and research.

I do not research family records beyond my personal hobby for my family. I do not visit and record bulk grave location information.

* * * * * * * * * IMAGES * * * * * * * * *

As outlined in the Find A Grave guidelines, I do NOT add, 'Non-personal' images include animated GIFS, MIDI files, images of flowers, angels, flags, banners, coats of arms, etc.

As directed in the Find A Grave guidelines, I only add images that are, "... because it is an image that IS PERSONALLY attached to the deceased." If I add "what is meant to be a TEMPORARY image" detailing personal family link information, I will gladly remove the temporary personal family link image once the memorial links and bios are updated. I will typically upload a temporary personal link image when:

> the Contributor's bio details delays,
> I've made a request older than 30 days,
> the Contributor is non-active,
> or I have a bulk to follow-up.

As directed by Find A Grave, I will, "Please allow thirty days from your original request before contacting Find A Grave about the lack of activity."

"Find A Grave memorials should be viewed as works in progress. There is always the potential for someone to send you a correction or additional information. As the manager of the memorial, we hope that YOU WILL BE EXCITED to receive and POST new information as it is presented to you."

You may wish to review the image guidelines in the "Help with Find A Grave" link.

I remember my grade school teacher's etiquette lesson, "Curt comments are unattractive and unnecessary."

Like any hobby, genealogy is suppose to be fun and encouraging. I agree to be kind and respectful to you. I hope that you will do the same to me.

Kristal Ruiter
Jarrett family line
Hi it's me Kristal Ruiter again, whose biological maternal side of my family were the Jarretts.
From my 5x great grandfather John Jarrett, I can now go back four more generations all the way to Robert Jarrett who was born in 1630 in England.
That's all the further back I can go though with the help I was given via the Missouri Genealogy group on Facebook.
Please help me in my research of my biological maternal family line!
I still have to verify all this new information and I'm not too sure how to do this, without any help.

RE: Plott-Jarrett Side of the Family
I put a post on the group page saying how I'm related to the Jarretts.

John and Sophia Jarrett were my 5x great grandfather and grandmother.

Jarrett family
Hi my name is Kristal Ruiter, but at birth it was Kristal Abney.

My great grandmother on my birth mother's side was Dalice Easter Kales, whose maiden name was Jarrett.

Kenneth Jarrett told me to contact you because he said that you know a lot about the Harry family history.

If you could please help me in my quest to learn more about my Jarrett side of my family, I'd really appreciate it a lot.

The genealogy information that you added to the memorials for Elizabeth Sherrill and Baily Kirby are the best I have ever found. I descend from the Sherrill and Durham families. My 3rd great grandmother's Celia Sherrill Watson and Mary Sherrill Greene both look like Cherokee Indians, and their grandchildren said that they had Cherokee ancestors. I read another public message to you which also mentioned Cherokee blood. If anyone can help prove this Cherokee connection I would really appreciate knowing about it. I had a DNA test hopefully to prove that I had a Cherokee ancestor, but it was so many generations ago the test could not prove it.

Suzannah Hil Cook
Previously Chuck Garland had listed Suzannah as member of the Cherokee Family of Union Co, GA. Do you have any details regarding this? Sorry about the duplication---I hit the wrong key. Thanks for your help. I agree with your position about genealogy.
