Bio and Links
Bio Photo I love genealogy and Findagrave is a BIG resource! I volunteered to take photos to help others locate their ancestors. When I look for the requests I try to take pictures of all graves with the same surname as the requests, plus I try to take as many pictures of others who don't have a picture on Findagrave. I have added a few memorials of pictures I have taken on my treks and will be adding more. I will be glad to transfer any who are not my relatives. If I have a relative of anyone's that is married to one of my relatives (unless they are aunts or uncles) , I will be glad to transfer them - just ask!

Family History:

As for my family, my grandparents on my dad's side are Oscar & Mollie (Alford) Faver, and my mom's parents are Alfred & Millie (Brown) Jackson. My Brown family was one of the first families to settle in Titus county - my 4th great-grandfather John Brown received head rights in the Republic of Texas. His son Alexander Brown (also my third great grandfather) was one of the first physicians in Titus County as well.

The Brown family came from South Carolina - John is thought to have come from Ireland, which is indicated on his censuses. The Browns moved first to Pettis County in Missouri and when John Brown moved to Titus County, Alexander and some of the other Brown family moved there also. Alexander married Sarah Marshall and her brother George married Alexander's sister Elizabeth. There is a website, www.pettiscountypioneers.com that has letters sent between the families in Titus county and in Pettis county.

Some of the Marshall family also moved to Titus county while some of the Brown clan stayed in Missouri.My great-grandparents were John Willis & Catherine (McMurrey) Faver, James & Mary Dean (Bethel) Alford, Bill & Susie (Kelly) Jackson, and Harmon Hughes & Nancy Ann (Stephens) Brown.

My Faver family settled in San Saba, TX, after leaving Alabama. My Alford family also settled in San Saba, TX after moving there from Illinois. San Saba is where my grandparents Oscar & Mollie Faver met and married in 1905. My Jackson family are from North Carolina - my great-great grandfather Alfred Jackson moved to Mississippi with his first wife and family. My great-grandfather Bill Jackson moved to Oklahoma with his family in the early 1900s including my grandfather Alfred Jackson where he met my grandmother Millie Brown who moved there to help a family with their children. My grandmother Millie had been married to R. S. Duke and they lost an infant daughter, Madie. When Alfred & Millie married, they adopted my uncle Kenneth Eugene Jackson and then my mother, Annie Faye Jackson was born in 1931. They would have three more children, Eleanor Clarene Jackson, Mary Dean Jackson & Donald Ray Jackson.

I have several ancestors who fought in both the Confederate & Union armies in the Civil War, and several who fought in the American Revolution and other wars such as WWI & WWII. I am working on virtual cemeteries for those ancestors who served their country and/or lost their lives fighting for it.

Durrill Cemetery in Pettis County
I also found this reg. the cemetery:

UPDATE: Oct. 5, 2007, from Vesta L. DeRiso
"The Durrill Cemetery has been destroyed. The farmer (not Sam Anderson) who
owns the land plowed it up and tossed the stones. There are 3 stones still in
the woods - and two of them are not on the list - probably because the woods
had already claimed them. One of them is Mary G., wife of M. Reed. The other
is Ruth, wife of Jacob Yankee (which would be significant). She is Ruth
Goodnight Yankee. The Goodnights have kept their cemetery in good order, and
they might want to know that the stone is there.

Durrill Cemetery in Pettis County
Hello,
I notice that you had some requests for this cemetery. I started researching to find a location to photograph the stones, but in the process, I found a message board from back in 2007 that was on Ancestry.com. Here are some of the comments that followed the thread about the cemetery:

Comment #1
The Durrill Cemetery has been destroyed, for anyone who is interested. It was plowed under and turned into a cornfield. The stones were tossed. Very, very disappointing.
Comment #2
The current landowner's father used some of the headstones for a sidewalk years ago and the current landowner wouldn't allow descendants to visit the cemetery. I'm just greatful that someone documented who was there.
It's a disgrace that some people have no better sense of history.
Comment #3
I photographed the 3 stones that remained. I don't know that two of them were recorded before - and they only remain because they're not at all visible (unless you know where to look). The third stone was pretty much washed clean. None of my family stones remained. Yes, it's a disgrace. These were the oldest residents of Pettis County, and they have been very badly treated. It's not just the landowner's fault, though. This cemetery should have been protected.

I just wanted to let you know so that you aren't waiting for the pictures. I'm very sorry....
