Bio and Links
I have worked on my Family Genealogy for about 25 years and have been to many many cemeteries through the years. My Mother and I put out flowers on many graves and liked to remember those that had "gone to Glory". Now that she is gone, I've taken it upon myself to follow in her footsteps by keeping the memories of our loved ones alive. I grew up in Tyler, TX and now live in Rockwall, TX. I will try to start taking pictures of the graves that I go to and add to this site.
I am not at all interested in numbers or seeing if I can get more graves than someone else - that is ridiculous! How could anyone do this to be competitive?
I am really only interested in my relatives, friends, and classmates, and their family connections - not just to reach a high number of graves.
If I make a suggestion or ask for a transfer it is someone I am connected to or related to and want to add information or correct information. I will do the same for you. Thank you for your help.

Sarah Hall Murchison
Gail, I appreciate all that you do. Your work in these matters is most valuable.
I am a descendant of William A. Murchison, born 1809 and after reading your entry on Mary Murchison Sadler, I wonder if you know who Sarah Hall Murchison's husband was.

Thanks Lee Hale

RE: Doak Capps Melear, Jr
Will do, Gail. I should be finished with the "Westlawn" section in less than a week. I found some Melears there and there might be more.

I still need to finish "Mt Moriah" and "Hillcrest." I expect that about 10% of the graves there have no Memorial. So stay tuned!

If you haven't called the cemetery office to confirm his grave location, you will find them helpful. When they tell you where he is buried, please let me know and I will check it for you.

RE: Daniel M'Kinzie/McKenzie
Opps...

I need to clarify this -

My direct line is Daniel's (1765-1850) brother, David. Then from David's (1763-1849)son John (1795-1852) to Daniel (1824-1876) who is my 3rd great grandfather.

I was so excited my words came out before my brain could think...lol

Anyway, please mail me!

RE: Daniel M'Kinzie/McKenzie
Hi Gail!!

YES, Daniel is my 3rd Great Grandfather!!

I would absolutely love to see the family history you have...I just (within the past month) broke through the McKenzie brick wall on my mother's side by guessing many birthdates, etc.

Here's my email: epitaph.seeker@yahoo.com

I am 'hondalily' on ancestry.com

Thanks so much for the reply!

Daniel M'Kinzie/McKenzie
Hello,

I believe we are cousins as Daniel (memorial 41135937) is my 5th great grand uncle and your 3rd great grandfather.

I am on Facebook and ancestry.com; are you?

I've seen your flowers posted on other McKenzie relatives as well. If you are interested in connecting with me and finding out how/through whom we are related, contact me!
I've just recently made a breakthrough on my mother's McKenzie branch within the past week and after 25+ years, I am very excited to find McKenzie cousins!
