Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi I'm Jay Follett.

I've been doing family history since about 1988. It's amazing what we can do know with digital technology and biology (DNA).

I'm researching my ancestors and their descendants:

Paternal: Kirby, Christoffersen, Follett, Niles, Morrill, Stokes, Hansen, Gibson, Woolf, Irons, Jorgensen, Sickles.

Maternal: Hamilton, Hester, Jones, Owens, Chandler, Copeland, Bartlett, Orr, Mitchell, Pond, Judd, Orr (among others).

I've also created many memorials for many unrelated people including many from local cemeteries in New Mexico and other places. If you want a transfer for any of these, let me know. Not really in it for the numbers or personal credit but more of a public service. It's not about me but them.

My fathers side of the family include pioneers and immigrants who joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Mom's side were southerners, mostly Baptists and Methodists, and include a few colorful characters.

I hope the legacy of my memorials will enable others to find and know their ancestors, to preserve our history and to honor those who have gone before us and made us who we are.

Thanks to the many photo volunteers, folks who have added details and links and others who have collaborated in this effort.

If you have corrections, additional information, pictures or would like to add links, let me know and your or I can add them to the memorials I have created.

You are free to use any photo or other data I have added for person use or for family history or for use on or other family history web sites.

I've tried to connect as may of my relatives as I can find in findagrave.

In addition to findagrave, also has my ancestors and their descendants in the tree jayfollett. I have around 12,000+ people in this tree (and growing).

Thanks and happy hunting.


P.S. When I started using findagrave there were less than 20 million names. Pretty amazing site.

I recently took DNA test and I would highly recommend this to anyone who needs a boost in identifying ancestors and their descendants.

Walter Calvin Barber
Buried in Rusk County Texas. I see that you posted a picture of Mr Barber on his memorial. Can you possibly give me any information as to Mr Barbers Occupation. I am asking because I have a photo taken in 1926 by my Grandfather in Henderson, TX and I am trying to find out if it might be a picture of Mr Barber.

This is my Mother. I was wondering if you would transfer management of this to me. There are a couple things I would like to add. Like My Father and my Mother's Children (all of them). Thanks

Please ignore my previous message! George Smothers is buried in Oakwood Cemetery - Lot 2, Block 496:

NOT in Oakwood Annex Cemetery. I'll go out and take the photo!

Hi - I'm the volunteer who claimed your photo request, but the only one close that I can find in Oakwood Annex Cemetery is:

Georgia Smothers B 1893, D 1957

Could this be the one you're looking for? Please let me know and I'll be glad to proceed.

RE: Follett Photos
Do you have obits for them? I have access to and if not there I could check local library microfilm. Let me know.

RE: Nova Giles
Thank you for your kind words. It means a lot to me to know that we have helped someone. Thank you for that. I went back and noticed that I had Byron listed as dying in 1915....where that came from I'll never know, but I did correct it thanks to the obit you posted. Thank you for letting me know about Nova. I appreciate it. I haven't been able to do much since my stroke, but still enjoy doing the research when I can. Thanks again, Nancy
