Bio Photo 💗One day I'll be in Christ's loving arms. Do you know where you'll be after you've drawn your last breath? In the Bible John 14:6, Jesus says, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father (God) except through me. If you put your faith in Jesus, and believe He died and rose again for the atonement of our sins, you can experience the eternal life that God has waiting for you in Heaven.✞

My name is Vanessa Lynn Porter and I am 30 years old. I am an artist and a poet. Being mixed white and black has made it interesting to see the differences in my many heritages. I enjoy researching my family's genealogy and I love to add family pictures so that those who come by their memorials can see who they were. I am always interested in meeting distant relatives. We used to have a Blaise family reunion but they stopped doing it when I was younger. Our family also had a Smith family reunion. If anyone is related to me please message me, I would love to exchange pictures and stories! I am related to all of my memorials except one. If you recognize a memorial as your kin let me know! I'm a mom to my sweet 2 year old and a wife to a wonderful man, my soulmate Eric.

I am proud to be German, French,
Polish, African, Cherokee, American,
Southern, and Texan! :)

RE: James Mayberry
Hi V.,
I attempted to send you the Mayberry photos. Please let me know if you do not get them.
Have a great weekend!

....ALSO, i noticed that James' birthday on the stone does NOT match the date on Find-A-Grave.

James Mayberry
Hi V., Today I visited the Highland cemetery and photographed James' stone for you. I have added the one photo to his memorial, but only one photo was allowed due to photo limits per memorial. I have a photo of his and Lois' stone, and another picture of their marriage date, which was also listed on the stone. if you'd like, i can email these to you and you can perhaps later add to his memorial when you'd like... or at least to have in your possession. ALSO, if there are any others in the Kaufman county area that i can help with, please feel free to ask. Have a great week!

RE: Lois L Earl Mayberry
have not forgotten you, or the photo i've promised. it's just been raining, raining, raining in this area ALL week long! and wouldn't you know it... during spring break. hopefully we'll get a break from the weather next week and i can see if the stone is "photographable", or requires some drying out. have a great weekend!

RE: Lois L Earl Mayberry
Hi V.,
I very much remember your grandparents stone, and even still remember it's location. When we had a rainy period in the area, your grandfather's portion of the stone became covered in dirt/mud. I carry a soft plastic scrapper in my car and it took me a couple of visits to scrape it clear. It was then that i realized his marker does not have a "passing" date listed on it, only his date of birth. That being the case, I did not photograph it, assuming he was still living. When there is a surviving spouse, I do not photograph the entire stone as i do not want to "advertise" any survivor (my concern with privacy).
However, on Find-A-Grave it lists his passing as 1991. I can go ahead and add the photo to his memorial for you, since you are requesting it. It is possible I MAY have a photo in my files and will check and see. If i do not, i will return to cemetery and photo the entirety for you.
Whichever the case, I will message you when I get it posted. :)

Thanks for the info! I've updated his page. Would you be able to obtain more birth month, birth and death place, obituary, etc? I like my memorials to be as complete as possible. THANKS!
