My wife, Melba nea Wright, and I began our genealogy quest in 1989 and to this day (odd as it sounds to others) one of most rewarding things to do is visit the grave of our ancestors. |
Now retired, we tend to our family and travel. Even in a foreign country we are drawn to the cemeteries and are rewarded to learn of the many various burial and cemetery practices.

I have taken the pictures you requested at the Chico Cemetery in Chico, Texas. I am having a difficult time downloading them, can I just send them to an e-mail address?
|Debbie Grider||Grave headstones from Chico Cemetery, Chico, Texas|
My name is Debbie Grider. I have photograph the headstones you requested in the Chico Cemetery in Chico Texas. I am having trouble getting them downloaded on the website. This is my first experience at doing that. How can i send them to you? Then perhaps you can get them fixed on the necessary pages. Sorry!
|Martha Westover||RE: Wiley Irby|
I don't remember what i was asking about Wiley Silas Irby but whatever it was, i'm sure it had to do with his dieing in between missouri and Tennessee and being buried on the praire, he is my 3rd time great grandfather. 5 times ggrandfather was Joseph Layfette Irby who died at Hayes station masacure at Laurens S. Carolina, 4times was Carter Irby who was said to be at the river getting water when the masacure happened, then his son 2nd times gggrandfather was Robert newton Irby, then 1st Joseph Payton Irby, my grandfather Herbert Guy Irby, and my mother Eva Geraldine Irby Brashers and Me Martha Sue Brashers Westover. so the Irby name ended with my grandfather on my side, I have 2 cousins with the Irby name

|Tex Wright||RE: Contact a cousin|
Les, Have tried the address a couple of times and each time the message fails.
Try sending me a message to my business address email@example.com I will add my message below
Les and Melba,
Have tried several times to make contact, but Have run into dead ends since I talked with your daughter(s) at their grandmothers funeral in Anson.
The wright web-site on Spokt is still up and running, although it doesn't get much usage. Maybe we are all getting to that age.
I started The Wright Place in the 80's on My Family. My Family was "bought out" by ancestry and was killed off so we moved to Spokt.com. We lost a lot of our good stuff, but still have a personal means of contact. If you would like, I will send you an invitation (user name and password).
Lots of old pictures and family information.
My research into the Wright history began not long after my dad (Thomas Doyle Wright) passed away in 1967. The doctor told us that daddy had a disease called PKD (Poly-cystic Kidney Disease). It is passed through the blood line (If a parent doesn't have it a child can't get it. It does not skip a generation and then show up. Once a child doesn't get the disease, it dies in that line.
IE - When Jessie Thomas Wright passed the disease down, Three of his 8 children passed the disease along, Joe and Zona did not pass it to their children. Obed nor Winnie had children so it is almost impossible to tell about them. Clara has some signs in her down line but even in modern day medicine, none have been diagnosed with the disease. Out of 4 children my dad had, three of us have the disease, Two of have had kidney transplants.
So much far PKD. I am still digging.
We lost all our trees when Ancestry moved all the information to their own site. I am slowly rebuilding my tree on Family Search. org. Smart of me to trust these computers to never lose anything, I didn't cover my other side by keeping a hard copy of information. Oh Well, the more we lose, the smarter we get.
When you guys get into this neighborhood, give me a call at the number below. In my line of work, I am often not at the house. My office is on main street, but as a property inspector, it's hard to get a rancher to bring his ranch into town for inspection.
By the way, Melba Jean might remember my sister. They played dolls in an old house that Clyde had for migrant labor ( I think this is PC)
Produce the most beautiful picture - And -
It will be turned down by those with different taste
Have Camera in Texas
By the way, Melba and I are kin also on her mothers Parson line. but that's a longer story.

Would you please respond or transfer (46975003 so I can add) info to the memorial:
Find A Grave Memorial# 115332902
Most intriguing is the grave of Simmons Owens, unmarked, but present.
Owens may be the reason behind the cemetery's name. Owens was a self-proclaimed professional cattle finder. When farmers or ranchers' cattle would go missing, for a fee, Owens would search and retrieve the cattle. It was later found that Owens himself was found stealing the cattle, then taking people's money when he returned the cattle. As law would have it back then, cattle thieves were hung. Owens was hung somewhere near the cemetery and laid to rest in it.

|D Varner||Looking for Parents/Grandparents of James R. Varner|
I am the grandson of James R. Varner who is buried in the Varner Cemetery in Knoxville, Th. He was born in the 1870's. I was trying to find out who his father and mother, and his grandfather and grandmother were? Do you have that information? I would also like to buy a genealogy book about the Varner family if you sell them. I guess you and I are kinfolks, but I'm not sure how.
Thanks for any information you can offer.
