Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in Pittsburgh, Pa., and grew up just east of there in the small town of Murrysville. Through Army, college, and company transfers, I've retired to East Texas.

I was married to Janet Marie (Vogel) Hartley ,and have three children, Tim, Todd & Kari.

My genealogy interests are (Paternal): Hartley, Headlee(ey), Gass (my stone wall), Fordyce, Lemley, Shriver, Barrickman, Jones, Cunningham and Prickett. (Maternal): Green, Knox, Jackson, Scott (England), Heacox, Barton and Hawley.
I'm willing to take photos for anyone in and around the Tyler, Texas area. I would like to thank those that have taken photos for me. I've "met" some great friends that way.

Please email me with any additions and/or corrections and I'll gladly update.

Please note: Many thanks to Carolina Angel for sponsoring my wife's memorial page.

A very special thank you to my friend Diane Miller for sponsoring my great grandparents, Joseph & Margaret (Scott) Green and Albert Henry Knox. Please visit Diane's family.

RE: Morney Dawson Headlee
Hi, Olin,
There are lots of cemeteries in Tyler Co. Lucky for you, the Tyler Co. Historical Soc. about mid-1990's published their cemetery readings. I have four volumes of those.

Mornia D. Headley is buried at Walnut Fork Cemetery, aka Thompson. Info shown: w/o James; maiden name, Dawson; born April 17, 1852; died Feb. 14, 1897.

It appears James is buried next to her: s/o Elisha & Elizabeth. Marker is only a fieldstone - no dates available.

These readings were done 1983-86. The cemetery is in McElroy District. Description/location: On point above confluence of Headley Branch with mainstream Walnut Fork of Indian Creek, below churchouse, across run from road, western slope. 208 graves - 155 marked; 53 unmarked.

I chaired the families section of the WEST WILLIAMS Twp. history book that came out in 1999 (out of print now). Are you aware of an informative profile that we did for the DAWSON family that goes back to John Dawson and wife Eleanor Jackson coming from Scotland in 1850?

RE: James Manfred and Ida Mackey
INTERESTING! James Manfred Mackey was my maternal grandmother's brother!
THANKS for doing this as it will be easier to do all the adds and links.

RE: Samuel C. Hartley
Dear Olin,
My memory is much worse than yours so even if I did say that, a photo of the spot where a marker should be is still helpful as it shows where the remains are resting. Go ahead and request when the WEATHER is better.

James Manfred and Ida Mackey
Sorry - I named the children in my first e-mail. I meant to say their parents - James Manfred and Ida.

Mackeys in Sylvan Cemetery, Ontario
Interested in your interest in my close Mackey relatives in Sylvan Cemetery. Can't find you in our family tree and you live so far away from here. There are other Mackey relatives in the same cemetery but your interest was just in Dawson, Gordon and wives.
I am interested in linking and adding information for these family members. Are you willing to transfer and if not - to add what I have?

Mary Mandell
I just talked to the cemetery staff and they confirmed that her grave is to the right of Walter's, and does not have a marker.

Sorry this one was not a positive outcome! I have added a photo which shows the location next to Walter.

RE: Walter Crane Mandell
Hello! There were no other Mandells buried anywhere nearby. Are you sure she is buried there?

I have claimed the maximum amount of photo requests, but if no one else claims, I can still look for the wife. Maybe she is buried in another part of the cemetery. It is not common, but not unheard of. Let me know what yo find out.
