Bio and Links
Bio Photo As a woman with very deep Southern US roots, how can I not love genealogy? Most of my life I have enjoyed wandering in cemeteries, particularly old ones - pondering over descriptions, inscriptions, ages, etc.

I'm especially interested in these surnames:
Gibson, McCormick, Brown, Tucker, Wells, Riley, Halstead, Cheshire ...
Renfroe, Owens, Leonard, Hudson, Lobaugh ...

Melanie aka Mama, Dr, Bear, sister, daughter, daughter-in-law, cousin, Auntie, etc ...!

RE: Donald Junior Hamm
Thanks for the quick response and your work you have done. Without yours and others like you with the same interest in this I would not be this far in my research. Thanks again

Donald Junior Hamm
Hi, I'm questioning the grave site of Donald Junior Hamm, it is a double headstone the second person is Margaret A Boger who is Margaret Maurice Anderson Boger who I'm researching. I do not understand the relationship between these two. Margaret married Robert E. Lee Boger and was widowed in 1961. I have been unable to find any further evidence that she remarried and if she did marry Donald Hamm as the inscription insinuates "As I promised" Why is her name Boger and not Hamm? Also her obituary states she is the widow of Robert Boger with no mention of Donald Hamm. Do you have any additional information on this? Really appreciate your work, thanks for any additional help you might be able to provide.
