Bio and Links
Bio Photo 🎄🎄🎄
I lived and worked in the Dallas area over 35 years and now reside near Lake O The Pines in northeast Texas. I LOVE the older cemeteries in this area and have walked MANY of them, several times. If I can help, let me know.

THE PRIMARY PURPOSE OF FIND A GRAVE IS A GRAVES REGISTRATION WEBSITE. I will NOT link to "burial unknown" is called Find a GRAVE for a reason!

I will share any headstone photos for genealogy purposes.

Please DO NOT put obits or death certificates on memorials I manage! Please send me info for the bio section, do not just add a bio to the "flower" area.

ALL requests for links, bio's or any other information need to go thru the new EDIT button. I will verify any info sent. I may request you send me your sources and remember, "Trees" uploaded to, and various genealogy websites are NOT sources and are very often wrong! Always verify your information, don't just copy it as true!

If you have your messages disabled...and your email not available,.....DO NOT leave me an edit request. If I cannot contact you to verify sources, your edit will be declined.

RE: Census records and d/c
I'll send two census for you to see why I was sure this is the correct family. Cat

RE: Census records and d/c
The 1880 census list her as the daughter of Morris and Ann Birddim in the 1880 census, the death certificate shows her as the daughter of Morris and Ann Birdine. Did you add the memorial from the death certificate or from a gravestone? Both sources say the same thing.

If youthink it's a different person okey-dokey.

RE: Classie Birdine
I saw the death certificate also, but the information I have is from the census, she is actually in the household with morris and Ann but the last name is listed as Birddim in 1880.

Ann, (Classie's mother is still living in Camp Co TX in 1900 but cannot locate her after this. I was wondering whether you were close enough to survey that cemetery as there are many related to that family there. Death certificates are only as accurate as the person giving the information. I am so thrilled you found this family!!! Cat

RE: Classie Birdine
The census is not always correct this really is Classie who is the daughter of Morris and Ann Burdine her mother's maiden name was Mitchell, sometimes the dates are off, but this is her from Camp Co, Precinct 2, Texas, don't all her children match up?! Are you close enough to that area to get pictures? Cat

Thank you for trying to find my Great-Uncle's grave. He was divorced and had no children, so I guess a marker was never installed. Barbara

RE: Ida Strange
Hey Tricia, you're great. I agree with being as correct as possible. I cringe when I find a mistake I have made but I correct them as quickly as I can, and keep working. Thanks again, Mike

Samuel Newton Smith
Hi Tricia

You are absolutely correct. The birth date for this Samuel Newton Smith, is probably correct.

What is not correct though, is this Samuel Smith is not the son of Bryant Smith and Mary Jane Hanna. My bad for not checking this our earlier.

The Samuel B. Smith was the one that I was looking for. And with a couple of hours worth of work. I found him. From Birth, to death.

It is Samuel B. Smith Find A Grave #44526239

So, I would unlink him to the memorials for Bryant Smith, and Mary Jane Smith 'nee Hanna.

Have a great day!

RE: Mary Norman
The Norman family were residents of Washington County before and just after Mary married James Coffman in 1855. Her father died in 1865, her mother in 1887, both were buried in the same row. I have a copy of the cemetery listing from a board member. We will go to Elm Springs Cemetery and take a photo of the headstone, if it is still standing and post it to her memorial. Mary may have been here to see her mother or brother. Thomas lived around Elm Springs with his mother after his father died. Most of this information may be found at Ancestry US Census Records. Other family members also lived in the area. I am researching the Norman family as they relate to the Elm Springs area. - dennis

Yes she had remarried and died here in Mount Pleasant. I live here and she was in the nursing home for a few weeks before she died. She had fallen and broke her neck. Thanks so much and thanks for making her memorial.
