Bio and Links
My father got me interested in our family tree and it has become an enjoyable hobby. The search for old family graveyards and the creation of memorials on this web site by others has been an immeasurable help in this endeavor. I am a Georgia native.

My paternal family names include Stephens, Bussell/Bustle, Collins, Bowers, Osborn, Merritt, Cheek, Starrett, Baker, Glover, Kent, Guthrie, Colquitt, Pulliam, Holton, Hurst, Hawkins, Hodge, Lane, Tillman, and others.

My maternal family names include McConnell, Clauer, Stevenson, Crow, Brawner, Felton, Holladay(Holliday), Weitz, Wennemer, Gary, Richards, Spears, Worsham, Towns, Goolsby, Bowen, Baker, Harrold, Nesbitt, and others.

Knickerbocker Chapter DAR, New York, NY
RE: George W. Weitz
You're very welcome! It is a lovely non-sectarian, pastoral cemetery within a larger and very dense Jewish cemetery. Beautiful views of Manhattan as well.

I just want to let you know that I left a picture of Ezra on the memorial you created for him from a book in the public domain. Hope it's okay with you.

Hello Barry,

My family and I thank you so much for transferring this memorial to our care. Most members would not transfer because of F.A.G. guidelines. God Bless You. We appreciate all your hard work and dedication to this wonderful site.

Your friend, Glenn Massey

Thurman William Massey # 143008822
Hello BCStephens,

Would you please change my cousin's memorial to reflect cremation. I contacted Bill with Brookside Memorial Park in Houston, Harris, Texas # 1-281-449-6511. I informed him that Thurman William Massey was Cremated on 28 Jan 1974. Per their memorial records... stated ashes were scattered. Most likely on the grounds of Brookside Memorial Park, but cannot confirm this. I did find his wife Ethel Marie Bussell Legge Massey buried with her first husband: Eric Pervical Stanley Legge. She is buried with him at Earthman Resthaven Cemetery. Plot: Section 5. This cemetery is also located in Houston, Harris, Texas. I thank you so much for your time and assistance. God Bless.

Thanks, Glenn Massey

RE: Bussell
I transferred all of he ones in Mystic.
Any others I will be happy to do it. Love to see the whole Bussell Bunch in caring hands.
The "Very Best" to you and all of yours, Bud

RE: Bussell
Sure. Would you like all of the Bussells, if not, just give a list or use the "Edit". I am not related to any of them and saw you were working on them and I know that it is easier to make additions and changes when you have control.
Best regards, Bud.
PS. I got all of the info from books and notes at one of the many Historical Libraries around here. BB

Hi there.
Hope all is well down yonder in Southern Ga.
All links accepted.
I saw where you were doing this family so if you like I will transfer any or all to you.
I am Walter John Bussell now living in Stone Mountain, Ga the past 28 years. I gather every 'Bussell' I see just in case.
Lived in Tenn for 26 years and ran into three separate clans there, but no connection.
My great grandfather, Walter N. Bussell, came over in 1871 as a sixteen year old with his older brother and settled in New York. Older brother, Arthur, went on to San Francisco. Another, Edward, came over and settled in Philadelphia. So, that is us.
Best regards, Bud
