Bio and Links
Bio Photo A precious one from us has gone,
A voice we loved is stilled,
A place is vacant in our home,
Which never can be filled.
In loving memory of my family and friends.

My daughters, their father, and I had our DNA tested at Together we have 191 DNA Circles. I'm entering the matches as I find them, and could possibly send some of you edits or updates. Hope I don't bug you too much. Thank you very much for your help in advance.

John Blancit Shacklett Gravestone
Hi Dixie - John Blancit Shacklett, buried in Laurel Hill Cemetery in Fayette County PA, is my fifth great-grandfather. I will be driving through Pennsylvania on Friday and would like to stop by to visit his grave. It's a large graveyard and the graveyard administration has no idea which plot is his. Assuming you've been there, can you give me some idea of where to look?

Error on Memorial# 43108449
Regarding Memorial # 43108449, Mary's birthplace is recorded as being in Maryland in both the 1850 and 1860 census records, not in Kentucky as it states on this memorial.

Thank you,
Laura Jones

Dixie, I am transferring 9 memorials over to your care. They are Yancey's and those whom they married (Duke's, Franklin's, and Algee's). These folks are totally unrelated to me. Perhaps, as you continue your research on your children's trees, you will find more information regarding these folks that you can add. Bless you in your efforts.

Regards from an "UN-official" Daughter of the American Revolution!

RE: Shacklette farm sold
She is in the 1900 Meade County Census but not 1910 census. So she either died or got married between 1900 and 1910, but I haven't found anything yet.

Thank-you so much I appreciate it very much.
I have to say I found the last sentence contributor profile seemingly humorous with Contributor's on here with over thousand's of
memorials. I had one tell me they couldn't transfer because they had been adopted I haven't read the guideline on that on yet.
Any whoo thank-you

Thanks for your message for it's always good to double check these dates. I agree her headstone appears to read 1858, so I double checked the 1900 census and it also gives 1856.
