Born in northern Idaho, raised in Seattle & Nampa, married very, very young. I am the proud mother of two incredably talented sons. One an animated graphic design artist, the other a Chef - I've over heard both described in their unique talents as *BADASS*. And I could not be any prouder of either. My oldest son just gave me my very first grand child - SAGE - the product of two master cooks, ~wink~. I am a transplanted TEXAN, but a native *SPUD* (born in Lewiston, Idaho; raised in Parma, Idaho; Seattle, Washington; & Nampa, Idaho). My family had closed ranks around me as a child, I knew very little of any relatives that might exist outside my front door. I am so very glad to have met some of my wonderful cousins, that I would have never realized, even down the stretch of TEXAS road ~ with a Gibson name, to a Gibson Cemetery that is FULL of folks I never knew had any consanguinity. Thanks to every one of you...

Hi Debra,

We’ve made some exciting changes to the Global Cemeteries Project. The sub-projects have been merged into the Global Project to help with Leadership and to facilitate collaboration.

Some roles within the project have changed. From now on, there are Project Coordinators for each continent, and one for Welcome and Integration, plus Team Leaders for each individual Country etc.

Please let me know if you’d like to stay on in the new project, if you’d like to continue in an existing role, and which team(s) you’d like to be on. Please also give me your e-mail address so that I can get you added to the project’s Google Group.

Many thanks,


Leader, Global Cemeteries

Thanks for taking a second look at the merge of Doggett-313 and Doggett-16. This is an on going struggle over multiple genealogical sites to keep these two woman separate. People want to attribute Hannah Doggett (Doggett-313) as second wife of Samuel Sherman because he was married to her older sister Sarah (Doggett-15) but as you correctly point out this can not be the case because of the overlapping of child bearing. In fact, I don't think there is any clear evidence that the Hannah (Doggett-16) who married Samuel Sherman had the surname Doggett. All we have is records of her first name.

Hi Debra

From the work I have been doing this afternoon, I think you will have realised by now that you do not put and onto person profiles, as these are top level categories and should only be used on your freespace page.
