|Bio and Links|
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!

|KC Jayhawker||RE: Joe|
Thanks so much on the info on the DAR chapters. I will definitely contact you when we get ready to move down. I want to be in an active chapter.
I haven't went all the way back on my Shearer side, I do know the Virginia family came from PA and they were German.
My husband is Czech and we have photographed a lot of cemeteries in Texas for his genealogy, so decided that placing the photos on Find A Grave could help others with their research and I can count the time towards my volunteer hours for DAR.
No, Joe was not family, but Thank You very much for the offer.
|KC Jayhawker||RE: Joe|
Thanks for deleting it, I really hated to ask you to, but had already linked him before I realized that it was him. I know that per Find A Grave rules, I should have deleted mine, so I am transferring him back to you.
GREAT JOB getting at the Veterans marked!!!
I see that you are a Shearer. I am also a Shearer relation, my Shearer family is originally from Virginia, then moved to Kentucky. I have been trying to find out if James Shearer, married to Anna Lenna served in the Revolutionary War.
Eventually, we will be moving to the Temple, TX area and I will need to find a DAR Chapter here in TX.
Please let me know if your Shearer side crosses mine!
|Kerri Street-Manuel||RE: Auten|
Thank you Mary! The Autens are on my husband's side as well.
Thank you so much for the photo of Beulah Able Auten's headstone. I appreciate your time and effort to get this for me.
|Lawler Family||RE: Charles Ray|
Your so very welcome, Glad to be able to help people see something that is far away. The office has not help me at all. I tried once and they said that there was no one buried here by that name. The request was one of the oldest about 6 years. By chance I found him about 2 weeks later by just walking the rows. Others I've helped has been told the same thing and were happy to finally see them and know they were correct the entire time.
Hello, Mary. How are you related to the Pate's?
I've posted a transcript from the Salem Lutheran Cemetery in Lamartine that indicates Dr. GA Meeker's burial is there. I think this tends to confirm that the stone there is the correct location.
It's worth noting, though, that the transcriber had January, not March for the death month.
It's still on my list to check it out for myself the next time I'm up that way.
|Rick Platt||RE: George A Meeker|
I'm hoping you are happy about this find! It seems his stone was missing. I can see where you would be wanting to be sure, though.
He was the earliest doctor this west in the U.S. according to one source. That's pretty cool. Was he your relative?
Yes, the church does have records dating that far back even. My ancestor who died in 1861 was verified there. One can write to the Salem Cemetery Association.
My sources for this were multiple. For one, the gravestone itself reads "George A. Meeker M.D." which greatly narrows to whom this stone could refer. I also found a Findagrave.com memorial in WV (yours, I believe) that indicates he is believed to be buried in "Clarion or Armstrong" counties. Ancestry.com indicates he was living in Beaver Township, Clarion County in 1850 and his widow there in 1860.
I live many miles away from Salem, but find myself in that area once a year. I have tagged it to check more information the next time I'm there.
Good luck in your further research.
|Debbie Hilliard||RE: Reuben Criss|
You are welcome. I try to take advantage of these days of moderate temps - it will soon be too hot! This cemetery is not well cared for and many stones are broken or brush has grown up and taken over others. However, it was mostly shady and pretty wild flowers.
|Debbie Hilliard||Scott Cemetery|
I live near Millican, TX and have been trying to locate Scott Cemetery to fill a couple of photo requests you have posted. I cannot find any info on this cemetery. I noticed on one of the death certificates that the undertaker's name was Edd Scott - maybe a connection?
