Wednesday, April 11, 2012


today with Kevin's help, I found Grandma & Grandpa's grave (right where I couldn't find it last time!) they had mowed the grass, but I don't like the marker flush with the ground. their flower vase was gone. Grandma's marker hadn't been updated yet. (3 days till the year anniversary of her passing.) But I am glad they are "found". for future reference, they are right next to the gravel lane, just a bit past the curve.


I have long looked up ancestors on here....but today I started adding them! got Grandma Grace Brown, Grandpa Vermal Brown, and Great Uncle Dean Shafer listed so far...was going to do more....but where did I put that album of cemetery pictures???

JoAnne Ilene Sloane Evans

from findagrave.com

Birth: May 4, 1930
Guthrie County
Iowa, USA
Death: Aug. 24, 2006
Pleasant Hill
Polk County
Iowa, USA

JoAnne had an inner spirit of full kindness, caring, and giving that touched everyone she knew. She was a loving mother of 4 children.
JoAnne's parents moved to Des Moines when she was about 12. It was then she met Conrad William Scott,(Bill). They enjoyed spending time together and became good friends. They dated as teens until Bill's family moved away to California.
JoAnne married Cecil Dean Shafer, a cook in the army. They had a son Roy Dean Shafer. JoAnne went to school to and became a beautician. Dean was stationed in Witchita Falls,Texas when Roy Dean was struck with polio. JoAnne's mother, Ethel SLoane, came to Texas to the hospital and helped care for the many sick children there. When Roy Dean recovered enough to come home, Ethel brought JoAnne and Roy Dean back to Des Moines. JoAnne and Roy Dean moved back with her parent's, Ethel & Roy Sloane. They helped her care for Roy Dean. Cecil and Joanne divorced and she went to work at Firestone Tire Factory in an effort to provide for Roy Deans medical needs.
Some time after returning to Des Moines JoAnne, her friend Bill contacted her and told her he would return to Iowa. Bill did come home and went to work at Maytag in newton. They rekindled their friendship and then fell in love. Bill made sure JoAnne made it safely to work and home(she worked nights), and would take Roy Dean and JoAnne to movies and out to eat. JoAnne and Roy Dean enjoyed the times they spent with Bill. Bill bought JoAnne a beautiful ring and asked her to marry him. It was very difficult when Bill was called to war and trained as a Marine to go to Korea. Bill wrote to JoAnne and her family nearly every chance he could. It was a heart break that would never truely mend when JoAnne received the letter from Bill's commanding officer. PFC Conrad William Scott was missing in action and would not come home to marry JoAnne. She decorated his memorial marker for 53 years. The last time she visited his grave, the cancer she was fighting made her unable to stand and place the wreath herself.
After loosing Bill JoAnne married and later had a daughter Tamarra Lynn Evans, another son, David Rene Evans, and another Daughter Elizabeth Anne Evans.
JoAnne continued to work the night shift in order to be thewre for her children and then retired from Firestone Tire & Rubber Co after 32 years of faithful service. In the 32 years none of JoAnne's co workers heard her swear or act unladylike. She never shared any of her grief only her pride in her 4 children.
JoAnne made friends easily as she loved people. JoAnne celebrated her 75th Birthday at a party with nearly 100 of her friends and family. She proudly introduced her children and the table of ladies who she became friends in elementary school and maintained life long friendships with. (The ladies still get together for breakfast once a month, after 70yrs of friendship)
JoAnne remained married to her children's abusive father for 47 years. Only in her last 6 months on this earth was she able to escape his control and be free of the heartless man who made her suffer greatly.
JoAnne loved to collect dolls and Moon & Star glassware. She enjoyed attending doll shows, auctions and flea markets, hoping to find her treasures. JoAnne truely enjoyed people and always had a smile. She had great sense of humor she shared once she got to know you. She was a proud member of the DAR,(Daughters of the American Revolution), Eastern Star and joined the Marine Corps Ladies Auxilary in Bill's honor.
JoAnne Evans is so terribly missed by so many. She is free at last to be loved and cherished by her true love, Bill. She said he was waiting for her, with her momma and dad, and her son Roy Dean. Heaven is now where she is waiting, and watching over us. Thank you God for giving us JoAnne ! 5/4/1930-8/24/2006 76 years of her giving of herself.

Life's labor done, as sinks the day
Light from it's load the spirit flies;
While heaven and earth combine to say,
"How blest the righteous, when he dies!"

Crossing the Bar

Sunset and evening star, and one clear call for me,
And may there be no moaning at the bar, when I put out to sea,
Twilight and evening bell, and after that the dark,
And may there be no sadness of farewell, when I embark.
And though from out our borne of time and place, the flood may bear me far,
I hope to see my Pilot face to face, when I have crossed the bar.

I was a bit alarmed recently to accidently discover that I am a BABY BOOMER! this was distressing, because I thought my parents were also BABY BOOMERS! but looked it up today....baby boomers are 1946-1964 [according to one source]
but I could be a Tweener, also known as Generation Jones......
Tweener, also known as Generation Jones, is the generation born between the Baby Boomers and Generation X. Tweeners are primarily the offspring of the Silent Generation; mostly they were children in the 1960s, and teens in the 1970s.
OR I COULD BE GENERATION X! I am sooooooo confused!
* (born 1960-1979) Generation X is the generation born between approximately 1964 to 1981. Other names used interchangeably with Generation X are 13th Generation and Baby Busters.

so my parents belong to The Silent Generation (ages 63 to 81) ~~~~~~ my husband could be a different generation since he was born a few months later in 1965....Generation X is a term used to describe generations in many countries around the world born from 1965 to around 1982.[1] The term has been used in demography, the social sciences, and marketing, though it is most often used in popular culture.”
Koren & KJ are Generation Y, also known as the ‘Millennial Generation’, refers to a specific cohort of individuals born from about 1980 through and including the year 1994. However this is disputed by demographers and varies across countries; so the years 1988-2008 is also somewhat widely used. if you go till 2008, then Katie is also in this generation.

The Lost Generation was a term originally used to identify a group of American literary expatriates living in Paris in the 1920s and 1930s; it is now used more generally to describe the generation of young people who came of age in the United States during and shortly after World War I....this would be my great grandparents.
* The Greatest Generation is the worldwide generation of Allies that served in World War II. This group overlaps with the G.I. Generation, the generation of veterans that fought and won World War II, later to become the Establishment, and the parents of children who would later become the Baby Boomers.
* The Silent Generation was the generation born between the two World Wars, who were too young to join the service when World War II started. Many had fathers who served in World War I. (1925-1945)
* (born 1944-1960) The Baby Boomers were the generation born just after World War II, a time that included a 14-year increase in birthrate worldwide. Baby Boomers in their teen and college years were characteristically part of the 1960s counterculture, but later became more conservative, eventually gave birth to Generations X and Y. Most academic and demographic literature uses 1946 and 1960 as the cutoff years of the Baby Boom generation.[1]
* Tweener, also known as Generation Jones, is the generation born between the Baby Boomers and Generation X. Tweeners are primarily the offspring of the Silent Generation; mostly they were children in the 1960s, and teens in the 1970s.
* (born 1960-1979) Generation X is the generation born between approximately 1964 to 1981. Other names used interchangeably with Generation X are 13th Generation and Baby Busters. Most of this generation are children of The Baby Boomers and The Silent Generation. They tended to grow up with video games and MTV, and those born before 1973 spent most of their teen years in the 1980s.[2]
* (born 1975-1986) XY Cusp, also known as the MTV Generation, was caught between the end of Generation X and start of Generation Y, mainly living out their childhood through the 80s and teen years in the mid-90s. This generation was influenced by the launch of MTV, and the popularization of Web technology after 1995. Their peak is usually given as (1975-1986). This is also sometimes referred to as the Boomerang Generation.
* (born 1980-2001) Generation Y, also known as the Echo Boom although Millennials is becoming the more common parlance for this generation. They grew up with many world-changing events including the rise of mass communication, the Internet, and the 9/11 terrorist attacks. The Y Generation is known as a Culture War “battleground” with growing disagreements between conservative and progressive perspectives. 1981-2001 is the widest possible definition commonly cited, but generally speaking is the generation that was born in the 1980s.
* (after 1990) Generation Z, New Silent Generation or Homelander Generation is the youngest of generations thus far. These are the people that are born in the 1990s.
* (born after 1993) Generation I, is the generation born after the internet became mainstream (year 1993). This generation has also been referred to as “digital natives.”[3] as well as the “Net Generation.” They can come to be known as the Next-Net Generation or N2 Generation, having grown up in an era where the web/internet pervaded every aspect of their lives. These are generally the people that will be coming of age in the 2010s and the 2020s.

ok...now this other source I found puts baby boomers from 1944-1960. KJ says it is because these are just terms coined for statistics....nothing in concrete.
I am so confused!

Scarlett O'Hara was a four member post-hardcore band from McAllen, Texas currently on hiatus.

Scarlett O'Hara was a post-hardcore band from McAllen, Texas that was founded in 2007 by singer/guitarist Rene Lopez followed by screamer Eddie Cano. They soon recruited members Alex Samodouroff, Logan Burns, Andrew Mena, Morgan Vincent Hochstetler (departed in 2009 to go to college) and Edwin Chapa(who was replaced by current drummer Arnie Bernal in 2009) for the remaining spots in the band.[1] Their main musical influence is the metalcore band Underoath Their name is derived from the protagonist of the same name in the 1939 classic Gone With The Wind. They were signed to Rise Records.[2]

[edit] Self-Titled EP and Record Deal

In 2008, the band recorded an EP with local producer Charlie Vela. The Self-Titled EP contained just six songs. Among them were the popular songs "Where in the World is Earthworm Jim" and "Call it Reckless". In March 2009, Scarlett O'Hara was among a few local bands who were chosen to perform at the first annual Never Say Never Festival alongside bands such as Anberlin, A Skylit Drive, and Drop Dead Gorgeous. Over 300 copies of the band's self-titled ep were sold at the show. That was the start of the rise to fame. Soon after the Never Say Never show, Andrew Roesch, an artist manager with The Artery Foundation, came across the band's myspace page and contacted the band, offering to manage them for free until they were signed. It wasn't long before Scarlett O'Hara signed to Rise Records, which dropped them in 2011

[edit] Lost In Existence and Future Plans

After signing with Rise, the band took time to focus on finishing high school before completing their first full length album. The debut album, titled Lost In Existence took a little more than a month to complete and was released on September 13, 2010. The summer after graduation the band embarked on the pyknic partery tour alongside Woe, Is Me, Abandon All Ships, For All Those Sleeping, Attila, sleeping with sirens and headlining band drop dead, gorgeous. In November, Scarlett O'Hara joined Motionless In White, For All Those Sleeping, Woe Is Me, and headlining band A Skylit Drive for the Average Guys With Exceptional Hair Tour. It was recently stated that the band members have been writing new music for their second album. On January 8, Scarlett O'Hara embarked on "The Brodeo Tour" with the bands Hundreth, Lions!Tigers!Bears!, Letlive, and No Bragging Rights.[3] This is the first tour that they have headlined. The band released a music video for "Lost In Existence" on March 22, 2011. Scarlett O'Hara will soon be embarking on their 2nd headlining tour, The Metal East Tour, with fellow bands We Are Defiance, Casino Madrid, and Wolves Among Men. On July 19, shortly after Rene's(singer/guitarist)departure from the band because of creative differences/pursuit of his solo career, it was announced that scarlett had departed from the Metal East Tour due to unforeseen circumstances. It was also announced that Andrew Mena is no longer part of the band for many reasons.

"We apologize to all our fans for dropping The Metal East Tour. Due to unforeseen circumstances we had to drive home after the show in South Carolina. This should not stop anyone from attending the rest of the dates to check out our buds in We Are Defiance, Casino Madrid, and Wolves Among Men. We are NOT breaking up but we are taking a break from touring so we can write new material at home. We will have new songs posted as soon as possible. We can't thank you all enough for your love and support and we hope you all understand." The band was then no longer part of Rise Records because they dropped their second headlining tour.

Lead vocalist Eddie Cano has since announced on Facebook that Scarlett O'Hara is on hiatus and he is recording an EP with his new band, Chase the Lights, with Jace Thomas, formerly of Make Me Famous, on drums. Drummer Arnie Bernal has since joined hardcore/dubstep act Situations.

Throughout the month of February (2012), Scarlett has posted on Facebook about upcoming "big news" to be released on February 22, 2012. As of March 1, 2012, Eddie Cano released a statement through the Scarlett O'Hara facebook page, announcing his newest project, Miss Fortune, as well the Scarlett O'Hara's current state and future plans.

"As you all may know, Scarlett is on Hiatus due to other members pursuing other career options. I initially planned on keeping Scarlett alive and releasing a NEW song this week with a full EP for you guys. Although, I recently discovered I DO NOT have the legal rights or intentions to keep the name Scarlett O'Hara. (Hens our last status) Because I have been offered a deal to record a new Metal Ep for you guys. If I can get 1/4 OF YOU all to support me and "LIKE" our new page "Miss Fortune"! At 5k we will release a clip to our song "The Double Threat of Danger Ft. Tyler Carter" and I will continue making sweet sexual music for you.
As for a reunion, only time can tell but I will always be ready and waiting."

In cocktails

Southern Comfort is used in the creation of numerous cocktails, including the Alabama Slammer.

One of the earliest Southern Comfort-based cocktails to be marketed was the Scarlett O'Hara, concocted in tribute to the release of the film adaptation of Gone with the Wind in 1939. The mixture includes Southern Comfort, cranberry juice, and fresh lime.[5]

In a recent advertising campaign, the company suggests mixing it with lime juice to make a Soco and lime.[6]

Target has an essie nail color Scarlett O'Hara.

born Katie Scarlett O'Hara; credited as Scarlett O' Hara – Hamilton – Kennedy – Butler) is the protagonist in Margaret Mitchell's 1936 novel Gone with the Wind and in the later film of the same name. She also is the main character in the 1970 musical Scarlett and the 1991 book Scarlett, a sequel to Gone with the Wind that was written by Alexandra Ripley and adapted for a television mini-series in 1994. During early drafts of the original novel, Mitchell referred to her heroine as "Pansy", and did not decide on the name "Scarlett" until just before the novel went to print.[1]
Personality of the Character

Katie Scarlett, or Scarlett as everyone but her father calls her (she is named for his mother, chapter 2, Gone With the Wind) has dark hair, and a slim face and frame. She is an atypical protagonist, especially as a female romantic lead in fiction. When the novel opens, Scarlett is sixteen. She is vain, self-centered, somewhat spoiled, can be insecure, and has an intelligent, bright mind. She stands out in that she is smarter than and very much unlike the typical party-going belles around her. She can be a high-strung busybody, but for someone so smart, with men she loves, she can go into a mode where she is both babyish and overthinks little things. On the outside she seems charming, busy, good, and smart; but on the inside she is insecure and just wants the affection of her neighbor, Ashley Wilkes. She makes surface efforts to live up to the expectations her culture demands, but fears discovery by society of her true self. Scarlett has deep affection for Ashley, and wishes to marry him, despite a tradition in his family to marry cousins. Scarlett's motivation in the early part of the novel center around her desire to win the affection of Ashley, despite the fact that both of them marry others. Rhett Butler, an older bachelor, overhears Scarlett expressing her true feelings to Ashley, during a barbecue at Ashley's home. Rhett admires and is interested in the willful Scarlett, and pursues her through a romantic friendship when she becomes widowed, helping her to ignore Southern conventions and become active in society again. The Civil War is ultimately blamed by disapproving society, and Scarlett finds friendship with Rhett liberating.

After the War, Scarlett's character hardens, when she is burdened by her family, servants, the Wilkes family, and the fear of homelessness and starvation. This causes her to become extremely money-conscious and materialistic. Her motivation is to assure that no one close to her faces the threat of starvation or being a burden to others outside the family. As such, she engages in controversial business practices and exploits convict labor in order to make her lumber business, bought and run in defiance of her seconds husband's wishes, have a higher profit margin. After she becomes widowed again, she marries her long-term friend, Rhett Butler, for "fun," and because he is very wealthy.

Unfortunately, Scarlett is too simultaneously insecure and vain to realize her pursuit of Ashley was misdirected until the climax of the novel. With the death of Melanie Wilkes, she realizes she should not have been pursuing Ashley, who didn't return her affection but also never understood her, and that she loves Rhett Butler. She pursues Rhett from Melanie's deathbed to their home in the neighborhood, only to discover he has given up on receiving a return of affection from Scarlett and is preparing to leave her. In a reminder of how important her homeland is to her, Scarlett decides to return to the family plantation, Tara, to rest and set her plans to attract Rhett anew. This echoes two interactions in the novel with Gerald O'Hara, where Scarlett was told how important land is to the Irish.

[edit] Searching for Scarlett
While the studio and the public agreed that the part of Rhett Butler should go to Clark Gable (except for Clark Gable himself), casting for the role of Scarlett was a little harder. The search for an actress to play Scarlett in the film version of the novel famously drew the biggest names in the history of cinema, such as Bette Davis (whose casting as a Southern belle in Jezebel in 1938 took her out of contention), and Katharine Hepburn, who went so far as demanding an appointment with producer David O. Selznick and saying, "I am Scarlett O'Hara! The role is practically written for me." David replied rather bluntly, "I can't imagine Rhett Butler chasing you for twelve years."[citation needed]Jean Arthur and Lucille Ball were also considered, as well as relatively unknown actress Doris Davenport. Susan Hayward was "discovered" when she tested for the part, and the career of Lana Turner developed quickly after her screen test. Tallulah Bankhead and Joan Bennett were widely considered to be the most likely choices until they were supplanted by Paulette Goddard.

The young English actress Vivien Leigh, virtually unknown in America, saw that several English actors, including Ronald Colman and Leslie Howard, were in consideration for the male leads in Gone with the Wind. Her agent happened to be the London representative of the Myron Selznick talent agency, headed by David Selznick's brother, Myron. Leigh asked Myron to put her name into consideration as Scarlett on the eve of the American release of her picture Fire Over England in February 1938. David Selznick watched both Fire Over England and her most recent picture, A Yank at Oxford, that month, and thought she was excellent but in no way a possible Scarlett, as she was "too British." But Myron Selznick arranged for David to first meet Leigh on the night in December 1938 when the burning of the Atlanta Depot was being filmed on the Forty Acres backlot that Selznick International and RKO shared. Leigh and her then lover Laurence Olivier (later to be her husband) were visiting as guests of Myron Selznick, who was also Olivier's agent, while Leigh was in Hollywood hoping for a part in Olivier's current movie, Wuthering Heights. In a letter to his wife two days later, David Selznick admitted that Leigh was "the Scarlett dark horse," and after a series of screen tests, her casting was announced on January 13, 1939. Just before the shooting of the film, Selznick informed Ed Sullivan: "Scarlett O'Hara's parents were French and Irish. Identically, Miss Leigh's parents are French and Irish."[2]

In any case, Leigh was cast—despite public protest that the role was too "American" for an English actress—and eventually won an Academy Award for her performance.

[edit] Other actresses considered for Scarlett
A great number of actresses were considered for the role of Scarlett. In fact, there were approximately 32 women who were considered and or tested for the role. The search for Scarlett began in 1936 (the year of the book's publication) and ended in December 1938.[3]

Between 1936 and 1938, the following actresses were considered:

Lucille Ball
Constance Bennett
Clara Bow
Mary Brian
Ruth Chatterton
Claudette Colbert
Joan Crawford
Frances Dee
Irene Dunne
Madge Evans
Glenda Farrell
Alice Faye
Joan Fontaine
Kay Francis
Janet Gaynor
Jean Harlow
Katharine Hepburn
Miriam Hopkins
Rochelle Hudson
Dorothy Lamour
Andrea Leeds[4]
Carole Lombard
Anita Louise
Myrna Loy
Maureen O'Sullivan
Merle Oberon
Ginger Rogers
Norma Shearer
Ann Sheridan
Gale Sondergaard
Barbara Stanwyck
Gloria Stuart
Margaret Sullavan
Linda Watkins
Mae West
Jane Wyman
Loretta Young

Between late 1937 and mid-1938, approximately 128 actresses were nominated for the role of Scarlett through letters of suggestion sent to Selznick International Pictures from the public.[5]

[edit] Adaptations

In 1980 a film about the search for Scarlett O'Hara was made entitled Moviola: The Scarlett O'Hara War with actress Morgan Brittany in the role of Vivien Leigh.

In the 1994 TV mini-series based on the sequel Scarlett, the character was played by English actress Joanne Whalley.

In the Margaret Martin musical Gone With The Wind, the role of Scarlett O'Hara was originated by Jill Paice

Historical sources for the character

While Margaret Mitchell used to say that her Gone with The Wind characters were not based on real people, modern researchers have found similarities to some of the people in Mitchell's own life as well as individuals she heard of. Rhett Butler is thought to be based on Mitchell's first husband, Red Upshaw, who reportedly raped her during their brief marriage. Scarlett's upbringing resembled that of Mitchell's maternal grandmother, Annie Fitzgerald Stephens (1845–1934), who was raised on a plantation in Clayton County, Georgia (where the fictional Tara was placed), and whose father was an Irish immigrant. Another source for Scarlett might have been Martha Bulloch Roosevelt, the mother of US president Theodore Roosevelt. Martha grew up in a beautiful southern mansion, Bulloch Hall, in Roswell, just north of Atlanta, Georgia. Her physical appearance, beauty, grace and intelligence were well known to Mitchell and the personality similarities (the positive ones) between Martha, who was also called Mittie, and Scarlett were striking. Some say that some of Scarlett's plotting and scheming aspects might have been drawn from Martha Bulloch Roosevelt's beautiful and vivacious, independently wealthy and grandparent-spoiled, rebellious and attention-seeking granddaughter, Alice Roosevelt Longworth.

these cookies are one of my favorite childhood memories, she'd bring them to picnics every summer. and they were SO good! I have never made them, though...the immense measurements and 10 dozen boggle my mind. I know it could be cut down....but I bet mine would never be as good as hers were....so chewy and soft and chocolately...and of course, healthy, since they contain cottage cheese! deb
