|Bio and Links|
Feel free to use any of my photos in any way that you wish, especially the older ones. My only purpose in posting them is to share them with those who want them and to help preserve them for posterity, just as many of these were gifts which others (long dead, for the most) once shared so generously with me. History is not for hoarding or profit but for preserving and passing on.|
Attribution is not expected. With that said, however, the serious researcher/historian records the source for photos and rare documents. So while I don't need to be acknowledged or "thanked," I have tried (not always successfully) to list where most of my photos came from. If I have posted one that came from you, please let me know, or remind me, or suggest proper attribution.
Lastly, all of my memorials are works in progress, so I'm continually tinkering with them, researching, editing or expanding them. Additions, comments, corrections, criticisms and suggestions are welcome and always considered.
I have filled up many of my memorials, leaving little or no room for additional photos. If you have photos you would like to add, please just let me know.

|Sue (Bateman) Matthews||Barnes/Bateman/Farmer/Braswell families|
Thanks for adding the memorials for these families Ray.
I'm trying to learn as much as I can about these families that are ancestors on my fathers's side.
According to information I have found but not been able to document, Christian Barnes and Isaac Farmer had a daughter Kezia Farmer who married John T. Bateman of Edgecombe County, NC. I have a copy of "John Batmon's" will dated Aug 11, 1803 in which he names his wife Kezia as well as his daughter "Poley" (who I determined is Mary Elizabeth Bateman Batts) and his son Asahel Bateman (who is my 2x great grandfather).
I have not been able to find any other documentation for John and Kezia Bateman however, and would very much appreciate hearing from anyone else who is researching these families.

By the way, thank you so much for the work you have done. Connie
|Judith Nan Lewis||Jane Wallace Carson|
Thank you so much for the additional information you emailed to me. It was of great help in making a decision, as I agree with you.
I will be making the link to her mother in a few minutes.
Until Later.....God Bless,
|Terri Sitton||Thank you|
I just wanted to thank you for all the work you have done to record history. I have just recently become "seriously" interested in researching my history. I was never interested in history while in grade school or college; but now that I am older, I am fascinated by my roots. Thank you for all the information and photos that you have shared with all of us.
Like you, I am always tinkering with research and crossed paths with one of your memorials, and wondered if Ray was your first or last name. That being said, I enjoyed your bio immensely and may reshape my own bio to be a little more like yours. Thanks for all that you do,

Ray was that Knoxville, Tennessee or Knoxville, Georgia?
|John Simmons||photo of Sara Jane Yarbourgh|
Hello, I would like to know where you found the photo posted on this lady in Roxana Cemetery in Lee County, Alabama. Sara Jane was my ancestor's sister. Can you provide any additional information about the photo? Are the men and women her sons and daughters? Thanks John
|Nancy Cornelius||Gordon Provence|
Added pic to wife and requested dod to be added to her. Found on the row behind them a Christopher Reed Provence. Not sure if connected or has passed. If connected and know if I need to remove pic to Christopher let me know.
|Brandon Masters||Masters Family|
I noticed you have done a good bit of work on the Masters Family graves. I was wondering if you have done any with the Masters of Harpersville, Vincent, and St. Clair County. There is a Masters family cemetery in Harpersville, Al it's in ruins but still something to hold onto.
