I'm not sure where the best place is to put this...but it has been discussed some in other threads...like Trayvon Martin's.  Anyhow, two of the four suspects wanted for the beating of a military man have been arrested in Tampa.

But the question is, will they be charged with a hate crime?

Not sure where to put this.  The couple is the grandparents of a friend of mine (this comes from the FB support page for the Straits):  It sounds like they need to get the word out...things aren't happening fast enough in this case.  Sounds like some support for the killer and rapist too.  Anyhow, thought that more support could come from the Monkeys.  Such a sad sad tragedy.

"Not to much to update other than the usual, government officials ignoring questions and this case, any main stream media will ignore if not quickly delete any post in refrence to the Straits case. Nothing more has been done to further progress this case and nobody still wants to answer any questions. I wish I could tell you they have all been captured and will pay but I cant. I, WE need you all to not forget and spread the word of this crime. Its terrible how many people in this world just dont care but then theres you and I...PLEASE POST ABOUT THIS ALL OVER YOUR LOCAL AREA. BOB AND NANCY DESERVE NOTHING LESS! RAPE/BRUTAL ABUSE ON OUR ELDERLY IS NOT OK!!! WHERE THE HELL IS OUR JUSTICE SYSTEM AND MEDIA WILLING TO SPEAK UP FOR THEM!?!? There also is bickering amongst a rally held for the Straits locally which sincerely saddens me and breaks my heart. Any proceeds had already been discussed on where it should go. Sadly they changed their mind about monies under pressure. I do not agree with it but there is nothing I can do but pray the moral just thing is done and for senseless, needless bashing of the Strait family to stop. Their tragedy is not a form of enterainment or topic of social media for you to judge or talk nasty about. Until you have walked a day in that families shoes you have absolutely NO room to talk. Also there is a fb page "Tyrone Woodfork" supporting his actions and black hatred towards whites... when will this ever end?? How could anyone see this crime as "acceptable" please friends lets fight~!"  https://www.facebook.com/JusticeForBobNancyStrait

As you know I have been actively doing genealogy research on my mother's and fathers sides of their family.  This is my greatest achievement so far:

  and 


This is my GGGG Grandfather and his wife is buried beside him.  Her headstone is chipped piece of rock that (probably him) scratched her name and death date on the stone.  I think she died at 1805 (was born in 1751).

I have searched for this cemetery for over 15 years.  I almost cried today when I saw it.  It is in a "hollow" in Macon Co., TN, way back in the boonies.  I happen to look closely out into the field and there it was off in the distance.  We stopped and asked the old man who lived there if we could drive back there.  He said, Do you live around here?  No, I don't but my parents are both from this area.  Turns out he is a 3rd cousin to me.  He was so nice. We talked and talked.  Me and hubby drove back into the field (had to open an electric fence to get in there) and I just took pictures all around the cemetery.  I found my mothers half-brother there also.  Had to spray me and hubby down with "off" because of the deer ticks being so bad this year.  Also, had to watch where I walked as the copperheads are so thick in this area. My aunt would not come with me because of copperheads!!!!

I am so proud of my GGGG grandfather.  I have his military papers from that time period.  He came back home from fighting in North Carolina and the Tory's had burn his house down and his wife and kids were with neighbors hiding from the Tory's.  What a story to tell us so many years later!!

    Blue Moon!!   


How wonderful it is you've made your discovery after so much time and effort    One thing I was wondering about.  Do you have the GPS coordinates for the cemetery recorded?  That may be very useful in the future. 

You and your hubby were very determined folks to deal with deer ticks and especially the threat of copperheads.  Durned copperheads don't give any warning and they are hard to see.  I'm glad you were able to find the graves of your relatives and get back out unscathed.

Has anyone else heard that Robin Williams died on set in Austria early this morning?  Does anyone know a legitimate site to check?  I heard it through my local news station facebook page...but, it was not from the news it was from a person posting...there is one link that says it is true but not sure of it's reliability.

After more research...I believe that it is fake.  Looking at the only site that has it posted...it appears that people can type in fake news...who would do that?  Crazy!  I was concerned because I saw it on the news facebook, posted from a reader.  Now it's on Twitter and people everywhere are asking about it.  I really don't think that it is true.  Thanks for looking around though.

Hi Muffy.  I do have the GPS coordinates for the cemetery and that is how I found exactly where it was.  I googled maps using the coordinates and then I zoomed in.  I could not see the cemetery because it was hidden by trees but it did show me it was out in the middle of cow pasture surrounded by an electric fence.  I knew it was sitting above a creek on a little hillside but had no idea it was back in a field.  We had to stop at the house of the owner to get permission to go back to the cemetery.  Believe me, in an isolated area back in the boonies this is sometimes not a very wise thing to do.  I felt confident enough though that my parents were probably kin to almost anyone in the area and sure enough they were.  My hubby wasn't so confident, he stood back close to his truck and only came up to the house once I yelled at him.  He opened the electric fence and I drove the truck in and it was a little ways up to the cemetery. 

With this info I may apply now for the DAR designation for our family (Daughters of the American Revolution).  I really don't know why it is a Tennessee chapter of Historical Society because he was living and died in Kentucky.  His land is right on the border of Tennessee and Kentucky and originally a chapter of the Kentucky Historical society recognized him and found the grave site.  Back in those days there were disputes on which state that area was in.  I guess even today there is still a dispute about that.

Sneezing monkey highlights new species list


Thomas Geissmann / Fauna & Flora International
A previously unknown type of snub-nosed monkey, discovered in northern Myanmar and dubbed Rhinopithecus strykeri, has a nose so upturned that the animals sneeze when it rains. To avoid inhaling water, they sit with their heads tucked between their knees on drizzly days, local hunters say. The species is shown here in a Photoshop reconstruction based on a Yunnan snub-nosed monkey and a carcass of the newly discovered species.

No, he was born in Culpeper Co., VA and must have moved with his family to Chatham Co., NC at least by 1770.  I don't think he spent much time in Virginia.  I have GenealogyBank but haven't had much luck in finding a lot of the families in those newspaper.  It appears after his service in N.C. he moved his family to the land he is buried on and lived and died there.
