Bio and Links
Bio Photo I joined Find A Grave because I was researching my family tree. Then I signed up as a volunteer to take photos for others because I wanted to help others as well. Now it's my goal to find my ancestors and link all of them to their family members. ALL of my virtual cemeteries are my family through my direct lines! I have listed my lineage below back to my third g-grandparents but some of those are missing and I am trying diligently to find who they were and where they are laid to rest. The missing ones on my mom's side are both parents of my 2g-grandfather Alfred Jackson and my 3g-grandmother who was married to my 3g-grandfather Lewis Wynn. On my dad's side I haven't found the parents of my 2g-grandmother Nancy Seymore. The ones whose names are underlined are links to their memorials, I'm still searching for the burial places of the ones who are not linked.

I have not listed grandparents beyond 3G but have extensive research on If you need help researching your family tree, I would be happy to help, I have helped lots of people find their ancestry!

With that being said, if I have a memorial that you are directly linked to I have no problem transferring it to you, unless it is one of my direct lines, unless they are closer to you by generation. Please leave me a message on here if you are requesting a transferral.

RE: Faver Family
John Darwin Faver Sr. fought in revolutionary war, born 1748 in Culpeper County, Virginia. Death in Wilkes County, Georgia, May 8, 1818. He was Nettie's 2nd great grand father. John Benjamin was Nettie's father. He was orphaned and was located in the 1850 census living with the Hancock family. John Benjamin, born abt. 1830, father John B. Faver MD., died in Limestone, Alabama in 1838. John Benjamin lived in Trinity County, Texas. My tree on Ancestry is Susan Lott Family Tree. You can access my tree on Ancestry but you have to get a membership which is free for 1 days. I have information tracing back to Luke Faver in 1640. Some records are from books,census and family. If you need more information, I will be glad to help. Nice to meet you. Susan Polk

I usually check the memorial page first but did not this time. I will remove the photo I did if you would like for me to.

RE: Boyett/Boyte/Boyt Family
Just found Shadrack Jr. had a son named Thomas who was born about 1820 (actually a brother to my GGGF Ellis). Shadrack Jr. moved his family from North Carolina to Lincoln County,Mississippi. This Thomas married a Betsy Green. Way too many Thomas's!

RE: Boyett/Boyte/Boyt Family
Dear Ms.Sharp
There were 4 Thomas Boytes that I can find. Thomas Boyte #2 born about 1735 and died 11 Nov. 1786 was the father of Shadrack #1. I believe this is the fellow your looking for as he's the only Thomas having a son named Shadrack.

None of the Thomas Boyte's I can find listed in the "B to B" book is shown moving to Alabama. Thomas Boyte #4 born in Wayne County in 1802 moved his family to Hardemen County Tennessee in 1825. Seems the rest stayed put in Wayne County, N.C..

RE: Boyett/Boyte/Boyt Family
Dr. Mrs. Sharp. I checked my "From Boyt to Boyette" book by Windy Elliott but did not find the information you were looking for. I have quiet a bit about Shadrack Sr. regarding land sales and doing business with his brother in law William Langston. I have the location of his land and assume from that he was buried there (Wayne County,North Carolina) as it stayed in the family. The location is in "leaps and Bounds" and would be hard to find today I imagine.
I know his son Shadrack Jr. (my line) moved to Mississippi about 1815 and he and his wife Sarah are buried in Busby Cemetery near Wellman Baptist church in Lincoln County. I'm not into genealogy but would be glad to give you what I have if it would help you.

Polly Hall Stephens
Very nice update to the Bio section of Polly's memorial. What a tragic life, losing her mother at the age of 3, having to support two children apparently born out of wedlock and then dying when her daughter was only 2 years of age. The Alabama marriage records are now on-line at and one is able to search an entire county between two dates and get a list of all marriages for any given surname. Searching Marengo County for Stephens and again for Hall produced no marriage record for Polly.
