↫ I'm an architectural engineer who moved from the midwest to Georgia, after retirement.  Not long after my retirement in 2010, I became involved in researching family cemeteries in Arkansas.    which was my segue into researching family history. I've reconnected with family members I haven't seen in decades and have been introduced to "very distant cousins" with common interests. While my husband is a great sport and travels to family cemeteries with me; my greatest ally and one true enthusiast is my cousin Iver Jacobson.  When Roger and I went to Hawaii, I lured him into visiting the National Cemetery of the Pacific by pointing out it's location in a volcanic crater with an incredible view of Honolulu...... I certainly smiled when he asked "Well, who do we know buried here?", as if he missed our traditional search for a grave. ♪ ♪ ♪
CAUTION: The comments below are certainly tedious, I'm practicing "In Line" sources. ⭐ ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
I'm fortunate to have a personal copy of "Sisk; Book of Ages" and am willing to do look ups for anyone that contacts me.
Ellison Plunkett is still a brick wall  but I've broken the brickwall for Stephen McReynolds, who died in Arkansas.  and for Thomas Jefferson Hamilton who died in the same county. Success is be attributed to stubbornly searching census records with incredibly aggressive wildcards (for butchered names), and following the records of family groups migrating together.
Before the age of 18 I lived in:

CAUTION: This chart is for my ancestors through the 9th generation (6th Great Grandparents). The 10th and 11th generations are still about SJ Baty's ancestors. Due to coincidence, we seem to have the same pedigree collapse. THANKS FOR THE CHART SJ!!!
