|Bio and Links|
I began my research in 1977. I loved hearing about my family from my Granny who was from Jefferson Co., Ms.; my grandfather was from Copiah Co., Ms.She would invite us over when someone came to her house in Texas from Mississippi. I remembered the surnames; FURR, SMITH, PIERCE, SAXON and CALLENDER to name a few. I listened to her stories. When I began my research, she was still alive. I went back to Texas & visited her. My cousin Carl Pierce & I recorded her life story in 1979. We went through a box of old photos. All grandmother's have boxes of old photos! She was an inspiration. I will be forever grateful. She died in 1985 at age 98. I visit my families' cemeteries and take photos when I can. One eventful trip to Mississippi in 2001 was very productive.|
My maternal grandmother was of Spanish & Cajun families from Louisiana. Among those surnames are MIGUEZ, ROMERO, AMY, BROUSSARD, LOIGNON, ETIE & DARTES. She lived until 1995 & also died at age 98. She wrote and told me much as well. She married TURNER & FREDERICK, so those surnames also.
Lately, I have been prompted to post the additional grave locations of my deceased husband whose family surnames are KELLY, GREEN, GILSTRAP, ADCOX, LOCKABY & SHERIFF; all being from the Pickens County area of South Carolina.
My current spouse's names are among my newest include:ROYCE,ALEXANDER,CHALFANT,CASE,DOYLE,
BLASKA & GRIFFIN. Those families were from Minnesota, Iowa, Ohio, Connecticut, New Hampshire & Tennessee & Mississippi.
Most of the memorials you see are my ancestors. Please feel free to email me with any corrections. My goal is to leave a lasting legacy for future generations by passing on accurate information. You may copy any photos I contributed here to share with your family. If related to me; contact me. I have a large database with all my relatives in it. Over 30,000+.
My heartfelt appreciation to those who have created memorials or taken pictures of my family members.

|DE Sundeen||RE: # Graves in Christian Furr Cemetery|
Thank you for writing. I love hearing from researchers.
Bill Furr told me Jacob Furr was buried in the Jacob Furr Cemetery. I wrote him back letting him know that it was listed as the Christian Furr Cemetery. This morning I sent a message to Diane Flynn, manager of Christian Furr's memorial, asking if she created the cemetery file on Findagrave, and if she could edit and change it to it's proper name.
I have not heard back from her at this time.
I was planning, if I didn't hear from her within a couple weeks, to write directly to the Findagrave forum:
If I can be of further help let me know.
Thank you so very much for the transfer of Mary Gaddis, Find A Grave Memorial# 73752816.

|Elizabeth Libiez Hailey||Isaac Ambrose Smith|
Hi! I am looking for information on Isaac Ambrose Smith. I am actually looking for the grandfather of the IA Smith of your memorial. He lived 1789-1831 and was president of the Louisiana Senate in 1831. His son was IA Smith, whose son was your IA Smith who married your Miguez ancestor. I am looking for any grave information. I"ve been hunting and can't find anything! Anything you know is greatly appreciated!

Amand Broussard is my 5th great grand father. Do you know where his wife Heleine Landry and Anne Benoit are buried?
|Richard Juhl||Steven Blaska, Mem # 74661505|
Hi Leslie...Steven/Steve has a permanent grave and marker at Calvary Cemetery, Los Angeles County, CA. I hope you can move him there. Click on the photos attached to his memorial and read the photographer's notes. That will explain everything. Additionally, I created a memorial for his wife (Anna). I've asked the photographer to add her photo to this new memorial. Thanks... Richard.
