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!
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.
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?
Edmond Head Hello! So I wanted to write to you and tell you the situition I ecountered finding Edmond's grave.So I found Edmond's wife's grave, and two of her daughters, but separating the three of them are two unknown graves. I want to believe that one of these is Edmonds grave. But I don't want to post the picture of the unknown grave and say it is Edmond's. But if you would like me to post the picture please let me know.
Billy Joe Savell Obit 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.
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.
