Bio and Links

In peace our relatives rest and in resting they provide clues for living relatives to find our way to each other. Please feel free to contact me at

I have a wonderful husband, four sons and four grandchildren. I took an early retirement from law enforcement to assist two of my precious grandchildren who are Autistic. They love helping my husband and I locate grave sites for others to complete their family history. My grandchildren refer to it as a "Treasure Hunt". And that it is exactly what it is. Our families are the biggest treasure anyone will ever have. Peace be with you and yours.

Traci Fields
Thank you for your very kind words. They are much appreciated.

Thank you very much for the token you left for my angel daughter Traci. She was a wonderful gift from GOD, and she's in my heart and mind every single day. Her passing has left major holes in the hearts of her family and friends.

I appreciate you helping to reach my goal of 5,000 tokens by her birthday, November 20th. Actually, thanks to you and other findagravers, so far today Traci has received 6,026 flowers/tokens. That makes my family and I extremely happy. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

I'm thankful and blessed for your kindness. GOD bless you for your heavenly heart.

I am so overwhelmed with all the findagrave friends requesting flowers/tokens for my Traci. Thank you ever so much!

This is something I wrote for Traci:

It was a cold, quiet night at the cemetery. The snow was falling gently to the ground. The only sound that could be heard was the whistling of the wind. Off in the distance I suddenly heard the tiny sound of jingling bells. I looked around and wondered where the life was in the stillness of this cemetery.

As I gazed around, I saw a ray of moonbeam shining down on a small Christmas tree.

I thought to myself, "This is where the life is in the cemetery!"

Ring the bells this holiday season in memory of those you love.

James Caudy
I am a descendant of James Caudy, the famous Indian fighter of Hampshire CO WV. My cousin has put together a tree and I would love to exchange information with you. I've been going through Find A Grave and picking out Caudy's from WV that I think would be related.
I was recently in WV and climbed Caudy's Castle. What an experience to be where your gggg grandfather was.

James C. Skaggs

I am a great-great grandson of Margaret Skaggs and Thomas Cravens from Marion County (created from Taylor and Green counties), so we may be "shirt tail" relatives.

I don't see James C. in my direct line, but I did find him with Emma and six children -- including Virgil -- in the 1900 census. You may already have the same information. If not, I can send it to you as a PDF attachment if you call or email me. If you are interested, I can also send you our Skaggs lineage.

RE: Sarah Newby
I may be incorrect in John and Sarah. There may have been 2 people named Sarah Kay.
I do manage the memorial for James Arthur Moore.
Here is what I have so far. If you let me know what you know about the family, maybe I can add to the info.
James Arthur Moore-son of W B Moore and Ida Long
Married first Susie Head. I just made a memorial for her. She is buried with him and has her name on his stone. After her death he remarried
to Charity R Baker. She has her own stone in the same plot as James Arthur and Susie Head
I know of two children one is Carroll son of James and Susie
Another is a daughter Maxine. They are both on findagrave and I have asked the makers of the memorials to link to the parents. It may be after the holidays before I have time to explore further.
I have all the cemetery books from Washington co as well as death records 1882-1950 and the Washington Co census for 1850 and 1900.

Sarah Newby
Thank you for the message. I have been doing hours of research and find that William Bass Moore is actually the SON of Sarah (nee Kay) Newby by her first husband John Moore. I have made the link. Thanks again

RE: # 29349918
While I am distantly related to the Barnett families of Warrick County, Indiana through the marriage of Celia & David Andrew Barnett, I have yet been able to find any connection between this family & your husband's Great Grandfather, William Jasper Barnett, although it is interesting to note that W. J. shares the same name as Celia's brother William Jasper Greer, my Great Great Grandfather.
I did find on Marsha's Warrick Web in the Barnett Chapel Cemetery index, where it gives his parents as George & Martha(Taylor) Barnett. I haven't been able to find any other information on them as of yet. Anyway, since W. J. is your husband's Great Grandfather, I have decided to transfer his memorial into your care. It was really nice hearing from you & if I do find any additional info on W. J. I'll be sure to let you know. TexRose
