Sunday when preparing my weekly family events, I decided to do a search for Annis Mae GALLOWAY. I had a little information on her, but nothing that was verified. These are my brother-in-law's 3x great-grandparents, although I don't really have actual proof of that.

I came across this picture on Find-A-Grave and yesterday I received permission from the person who took the picture to post it here. I was thrilled to find that the person who took this picture is also a descendant of this couple and has taken a number of other pictures of family stones in the area. It's great to find not only pictures, but also someone who is researching the same family. I was so glad I took the time to contact them for permission to use this picture!

  1. I just commented on Flipside to the fact that we often need help from other researchers to get the information we need. How lucky you found someone too.

  2. I honestly don't know where my research would be without the support of others!

    As recent as this year I received my Father's Grandmother's family bible from a complete stranger via a 5 year old Ancestry post!

    Collaboration & Acts of Kindness are the back-bone of Genealogy research.

    How cool is it that you too are a beneficiary of such gifts!:-)

    Luckie.
