Well I haven't been doing this very long, but I became interested in genealogy after hearing family stories and gossip, mostly from my grandparents. I worked with my paternal grandparents the longest out of all the grandkids, so I heard a *lot* of stories. They passed away within 20 days of each other in 01/2005.
I've made trips to the valley to visit the cemetery their ashes are buried at, and also to Karnes City TX to look for my maternal grandmothers family (no luck there). I made the first trip out there only to be told the woman who would have known where to look had passed away only a few years earlier, and that they hadn't started taking records until after she passed away.
I hate long road trips, and don't wish one through TX emptiness on anyone (hey it takes nearly all day to get from one end of the state to the other) so I love the idea of a site where people can request a photo from a local.
If anyone wants a photo, info from the Corpus Christi TX library or to correct anything I posted, feel free to email me!
George Clifton Hatch Dear Lora Monsevas, I see that you created the Memorial (# 32954054) for George Clifton Hatch on 16 Jan 2009. George is my Paternal 2nd Great Grandfather. Would you consider transferring Management to me (Contributor # 48648684)? I would sincerely appreciate it, and thank you for your effort in bringing his Memorial to life. John Mack Hatch
My relatives, Sullivan Ross Snyder and his wife Sylvia seem to be buried in 2 different cemeteries--Aberdeen and Seaside. Sullivan's death certificate says 'Seaside". Funny part is there are pictures of headstones in both. Can you figure this out?
W. M. McClure #19841656 Hi- I was out taking pictures and got a nice close up of the this headstone. I have submitted an edit and added another photo. Interesting to see how time changes the condition. Thanks for you work. Peggy
I certainly hope that you are still active. Could you please contact me at email@example.com? Is this lady in your family? I hope that you contact me because I believe there is a duplicate and I would like to get this lady properly linked to her parents and spouse. Her maiden name was Howard. Thank you, Tess Beshara
Carl Becher (Find A Grave Memorial# 21702455) and his wife, Ida Cohen Becher (Find A Grave Memorial# 133929932), are buried at Hebrew Rest Cemetery in Corpus Christi. I am pretty sure Carl's parents are buried there also, as well as a brother, and maybe a sister. I can't find them listed at Hebrew Rest. I have copies of newspaper obituaries that say they were buried in Corpus Christi. One says the Jewish Cemetery in Corpus Christi, another just says Corpus Christi, and a third says Beth El Cemetery in Corpus Christi. Have you seen their graves at Hebrew Rest? I would think they are all buried at the same cemetery.
They are: Father: Abraham Becher (August 25, 1857 Austria-October 21, 1933 San Antonio, Bexar, Texas)
Mother: Lena Schneiderman Becher (February 3, 1854 Germany-May 6, 1939 San Antonio, Bexar, Texas)
Brother: Harry Becher (January 23, 1886 Texas-July 28, 1966 San Antonio, Bexar, Texas)
Corpus Christi Library Lora, Thanks for your offer to look things up. I heard there was a nice article and other papers donated by Father Michael Howell, about Stanley Osborne Welch. S. O. Welch was my great grandmother's brother. They had another brother, Mark, who (according to Father Howell) died while Stanley was present....and he told the story of being there when his brother died. I do not have a death date for Mark, but he was born in 1866, was on the 1870 and 1880 censuses with his parents in New Orleans, then I can find no records.
Hebrew Rest Cemetery I did find out there are more Goodman's buried in this cemetery and would like it if you or someone could find them and post them...I am all the way up in Lubbock and have only been there when I was 13. Thanks.
I would really appreciate a message from you, please. I would really like to know how you got all this information and can you forward your contacts to me? I just would like to have the same thing done for my mom. This was very touching. I couldn't believe that this was up. My son found it by accident and forwarded the site to me. Please call or contact me. I would love to hear from you.
