Bio and Links
***These are my family surnames in order of significance. If any of them pertain to your own history then I'd definitely love to hear from you. Leave me a message and I'll promptly respond.***


I'm not going to list a bunch of ridiculous rules like some of the many grave collectors do on here.
Instead, I'm going to just tell you that I want to help as many people as I can while making these memorials as accurate as possible.

•I'll transfer ANY GRAVE that you're more related to than myself. Plain and simple. I don't care about silly rules.

•I'll pretty much add any edit or additional information you ask of me.

•I'll also gladly add any obituary that you want me to. This FAG rule annoys me deeply.

To PRESERVE & HONOR my deceased family & ancestors, while doing the same for others whenever I can.

• Please feel free to CONTACT ME on here at any time. I love interacting with others. I don't understand why some people IGNORE you. I always respond to messages.

About Me
I was born in St. Louis, Missouri. Home of my beloved St. Louis Cardinal's ⚾️. Both of my parents are of southern heritage. Our family history is full of amazing stories and old folklore's. I'm very proud of our ancestral journey.

My paternal great-grandfather John Henry Day was born in Tennessee in 1870. As a young farmer and in hope of improving his life, settled in southeast Missouri in 1900, making me a fourth generation Missourian. My paternal great-great-grandmothers, Mary E. Black was said to be a Native American Witch , living in the bootheel of Missouri (you gotta love family stories). Mary Black's legend is still shared amongst her descendants today.

My mother and her large family of 11 siblings come from Northeast Alabama. All 4 of her grandparents, Syrous and Rosie (Helton) Guffey and James "Pomp" and
Joanna (Willmon) Guthrie, can easily prove their roots trace back there as far as Two Centuries ago. Like my great-great-great-great-grandparents Ephraim Monroe and Sarah (Underwood) Guffey. Ephraim Guffey, a veteran of the War of 1812, was believed to be the first Guffey to settle in this part of Alabama. His son, Ephraim Underwood Guffey and grandson, Ephraim Berry Guffey are buried nearby in Guffey Cemetery.

RE: John Day (1779 - 1857) & his family
Hi there Mr. Day! Glad to see someone of interest in this Day family. I went there in search of the Gibson family and seen there were several not on the list, so I photographed the whole cemetery. Sad to say there are many broken tombstones. It was just too darn hot to dig any up...I added the cemetery transcripts as a photo on to John Day's grab a copy of that. It's 2 pages for the entire thing. Maybe you will see a connection that I have overlooked. I have been researching them, trying to locate obituaries or something. This little cemetery could use some help!

Never a problem. They are not related. We are the exemptions who want family to "have" their loved one's memorials. Thanks for what you do.

Alice Lucinda (Ewton) Keen
Alice Ewton Keen was a younger sister to my maternal grandmother, Emily Caroline (Ewton) Hazlewood, mem #5705607. She had two older brothers, Caswell Jefferson (Jeff) Ewton #128102663, and James (Jim) Madison Ewton, as well as the (younger) Joseph (Joe) Benjamin Ewton referred to in the Obit. She also had another younger sister Thea Docia Ewton.
This info plus some dates I can provide, can be added to your memorial if you are interested in doing so.

Mr. Day, thank you for your work. I'm the great-grandson of Lawrence B. Myers. I've noticed that his Son, Walter James Myers was left off the listing of children. Walter was born on December 18, 1904 and died on February 13, 1970. He is also buried at Dogwood.
