Bio and Links
Bio Photo My wife Jean and I have been doing genealogy for about 32 years. We do it out of love for our families. My families are: Wallace, Owen,Rodgers, Farmer, Wood, Wilson, Steelman, Speer, Jacks, Hosier & Kimbrell.

Jean's families are: Hastings, Philpott, Wallace, Green, Bryant, Bateman, Simms, McBride

Update: I have started entering non-members of my family into Findagrave. If you have any correction or would like additional information added please contact me. I will also remove or transfer entry to a proven relative.

My Wife, Jean Bateman Wallace. My Lover, My Friend and the Mother of My Children.

Dear Ancestor

Your tombstone stands among the rest;
In this field of green.
The name and date are chiseled out
For all the world to see.

It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I'd exist,
You died long before I was born.

Yet we are of one, you and I,
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.

Dear Ancestor, the life you lived
One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.

I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.

Cousins ?
I'm Raymond's daughter so I guess somewhere in the lineage were cousins. I have good memories to hang on to. just hard to believe so many of my generation is gone. Janice "Jan" Franklin Goade

Edward H. Nettleton
Hi, I was in an antique shop and saw a photo of
Harmon Nettleton in his army uniform (WWII). The store was in Texarkana. Not sure if this is the same person but if you are interested in the picture I can e-mail you a copy.

It sad that these old photos end up in antique stores.

Nannie Isabelle Farmer
Thank You! for putting that photo in Find A Grave! I have that also, but it was not identified. I think I have several other photos of the Farmer family. My grandfather was Thomas William Collins, Nannie's brother in Abilene. There is a baby's grave in the family plot in City Cemetery in Abilene "Infant of Alfred Farmer 1906" [buried 5 Apr 1906] Is this one of your lines? We might share info???

RE: Wallace and Marsh and Hayes Family
I have a few Owens in my family tree. I will check and see if they are from Morgan Co., Al. if so I will let you know. Most of my family lines in AL. is the Bush and Smith and Dunlap family. And there isn't much on them in AL. Janet Piearcy Collum

There is a memorial for S. M. Woods #55430091 that has the picture that is on Spruce Wood memorial. I will contact the person who took the picture and ask them to delete the picture on yours. Please do not accept the edits I sent you for Spruce Woods. I wish we could find his stone.
