MYSPACE: A Must Read for All
EVERYONE NEEDS TO READ ALL OF THIS and HAVE CHILDREN READ IT TOO!
After tossing her books on the sofa, she decided to grab a snack and get
on-line. She logged on under her screen name ByAngel213. She checked her Buddy
List and saw GoTo123 was on. She sent him an instant message:
Hi. I'm glad you are on! I thought someone was following me home today. It
was really weird!
LOL You watch too much TV. Why would someone be following you?
Don't you live in a safe neighborhood?
Of course I do. LOL I guess it was my imagination cuz' I didn't see anybody
when I looked out.
Unless you gave your name out on-line. You haven't done that have you?
Of course not. I'm not stupid you know.
Did you have a softball game after school today?
Yes and we won!!
That's great! Who did you play?
We played the Hornets. LOL. Their uniforms are so gross! They look like bees.
What is your team called?
We are the Canton Cats. We have tiger paws on our uniforms. They are really
Did you pitch?
No I play second base. I got to go. My homework has to be done before my
parents get home. I don't want them mad at me. Bye!
Catch you later. Bye
Meanwhile.......GoTo123 went to the member menu and began to search for her
profile. When it came up, he highlighted it and printed it out. He took out a
pen and began to write down what he knew about Angel so far.
Her name: Shannon
Birthday: Jan. 3, 1985
State where she lived: North Carolina
Hobbies: softball, chorus, skating and going to the mall. Besides this
information, he knew she lived in Canton because she had just told him. He knew she
stayed by herself until 6:30 p.m. every afternoon until her parents came home
from work. He knew she played softball on Thursday afternoons on the school
team, and the team was named the Canton Cats. Her favorite number 7 was printed
on her jersey. He knew she was in the eighth grade at the Canton Junior High
School . She had told him all this in the conversations they had on- line. He
had enough information to find her now.
Shannon didn't tell her parents about the incident on the way home from the
ballpark that day. She didn't want them to make a scene and stop her fr om
walking home from the softball games. Parents were always over re-acting and hers
were the worst. It made her wish she was not an only child. Maybe if she had
brothers and sisters, her parents wouldn't be so overprotective.
By Thursday, Shannon had forgotten about the footsteps following her.
Her game was in full swing when suddenly she felt someone staring at her. It
was then that the memory came back. She glanced up from her second base
position to see a man watching her closely.
He was leaning against the fence behind first base and he smiled when she
looked at him. He didn't look scary and she quickly dismissed the sudden fear she
After the game, he sat on a bleacher while she talked to the coach. She
noticed his smile once again as she walked past him. He nodded and she smiled back.
He noticed her name on the back of her shirt. He knew he had found her.
Quietly, he walked a safe distance behind her It was only a few blocks to
Shannon 's home, and once he saw where she lived he quickly returned to the park
to get his car.
Now he had to wait. He decided to get a bite to eat until the time came to go
to Shannon 's house. He drove to a fast food restaurant and sat there until
time to make his move.
Shannon was in her room later that evening when she heard voices in the
'Shannon, come here,' her father called. He sounded upset and she couldn't
imagine why. She went into the room to see the man from the ballpark sitting on
'Sit down,' her father began, 'this man has just told us a most interesting
story about you.'
Shannon sat back. How could he tell her parents anything? She had never seen
him before today!
'Do you know who I am, Shannon ?' the man asked.
' No,' Shannon answered.
'I am a police officer and your online friend, GoTo123.'
Shannon was stunned. 'That's impossible! GoTo is a kid my age! He's 14. And
he lives in Michigan !'
The man smiled. 'I know I told you all that, but it wasn't true. You see,
Shannon , there are people on-line who pretend to be kids; I was one of them. But
while others do it to injure kids and hurt them, I belong to a group of
parents who do it to protect kids from predators. I came here to find you to teach
you how dangerous it is to talk to people on-line. You told me enough about
yourself to make it easy for me to find you. You named the school you went to,
the name of your ball team and the position you played. The number and name on
your jersey just made finding you a breeze.'
Shannon was stunned. 'You mean you don't live in Michigan ?'
He laughed. 'No, I live in Raleigh . It made you feel safe to think I was so
far away, didn't it?'
'I had a friend whose daughter was like you. Only she wasn't as lucky. The
guy found her and murdered her while she was home alone. Kids are taught not to
tell anyone when they are alone, yet they do it all the time on-line. The
wrong people trick you into giving out information a little here and there
on-line. Before you know it, you have told them enough for them to find you without
even realizing you have done it. I hope you've learned a lesson from this and
won't do it again. Tell others about this so they will be safe too?'
'It's a promise!'
That night Shannon and her Dad and Mom all knelt down together and thanked
God for protecting Shannon from what could have been a tragic

Francis Campbell is another story - only because of the most recent
technology of DNA testing. While the Campbells listed above show up in what
County mainly in the 1760's, Francis first record is his land grant in 1794.
Just last year a descendent of Francis, Earl Campbell, was DNA tested and
apparently matched Cecil Campbell, a known descendent of ole George and Caty
revealing some sort of relationship.
I have Francis Campbell shown in the earliest Amherst County personal
property tax list which is 1782. He is also shown as a witness to a deed
September 1769 for John Miller selling 200 acres on the Rockfish to William
Oglesby. This Francis Campbell is the father of 3 sons, John, Francis and
I believe that he was in the vicinity in the 1760's/1770's since his son
John was born about 1770.
Since Earl and Cecil are 100% DNA matches we know that old George and old
Francis had a VERY close relationship. I agree that tests by a male
of Lawrence and Henry would be a great help to us. I would also like to see
male descendant of John Campbell and Amelia Coffey participate in the DNA
Has the Campbell DNA guru given any thoughts concerning the relationship of
old George and old Francis? If so, I've apparently missed them!
NOTE: Campbell Cousins through out America..
THESE Campbell's of OUR past were raised & Lived their lives in Amherst &
Nelson Counties Virginia.
I. CUZ A T Powell am a Descendant several generations Down the Lader
Though My Mother was an Amherst County Campbell.
The George & Cathy Campbell were MY 5th Grt Grand Parents
NOW the purpose of this request is hoping there will be a Descendant of
Francis Campbell And John Campbell & Amelia Coffey
NOW AGAIN: there must be some one that CAN trace your Family Connection
back to these Ancestors
COUSINS even though you can not connect to these TWO,
Campbell's BUT have traced your Campbell Family Back to Albemarle, Amherst
& Nelson Counties In Va THERE are som <D N A > Tests That with right < I. D>
could be Compared. PLEASE
