Bio and Links
Bio Photo Retired bean counter now tracking ancestors instead of numbers. Mother of three and grandmother of five fascinating grandchildren. Married to the same man for 50+ years.

Knew the names and cemeteries of all my grandparents and Ggrandparents before I could write. On one family trip we stopped at the Steekee Cemetery in Loudon,Tn. I transcribbed stones because my mother was so excited she couldn't write. Now 50+ years later I still use those notes!

Thank you so much for sending the obit which I added to his memorial Find A Grave Memorial# 120065593. He is in my family tree so I was so happy to be able to add it to my tree. Thanks.

James J. Grant
Hello, I am trying to find information on James J. Grant and his wife Irene M. Grant ( Litch). I believe that Irene would be my great grand aunt.

RE: Steeke Cemetery
Good to hear from you. My paternal grandparents all hail from Burton! I went on a genealogy trek to Brenham and Burton in 2008. I loved being there for the first time since my grandmother died in 1979. BTW, I can relate to you and your mother's enthusiasm at discovering so many past relatives. It is fun!

Good luck to you in all your genealogy digging. We are cut from the same cloth. I too have a bean-counter background.

Steeke Cemetery
Hi MH,

Couldn't resist contacting you. Thanks for updating a memorial for me (Eckardt in Brenham, Prairie Lea). I clicked on your name and read about your connection to Loudon. I live near there and have been down Steeke Road several times. If you ever need a picture from that cemetery, let me know! I'm wondering if you live near Brenham?

Vonore, TN

Meribah Littlefield
I entered your objection concerning the death of Meribah into the bio of her memorial.

I have not found ironclad evidence of her death, so her date of death has now been left blank.

Perhaps you're also a direct descendant and we're cousins. Thank you for your input.

RE: Rudolph Franklin Sewell
I am related to Rudolph Franklin Sewell Sr. through his wife, Lydia Marie Mings. She is my 1st cousin 1xremoved. So the Sewell side of the family is not in my direct lineage.

RE: William McKibben

You are welcome. I think that I have done my last supplemental. It is discouraging when it takes so long for approval.--Storres
