Much more to come soon!


This page would not have been possible without the kindness of a stranger-turned-friend.  I contacted a gentleman who had signed up at Random Acts of Genealogical Kindness (Which, sadly, has since gone offline).  As you may know, I do all of my research on this Southern land of my fathers from my home in Connecticut--a sure disadvantage to say the least.  This page is dedicated to that volunteer, Lane Cockrell.  Thank you so much for your good deed!  I am so fortunate to be able to meet people like you.

Go out in the world and do a kindness for someone today!  I can tell you first hand it is a blessing to be cherished.  I will be sure to pass the kindness on...

Contact me to place flowers around the names of your ancestors.  
I would be happy to honor their memory...
