Bio and Links
Just a guy that enjoys history and thinks that history and geneology are an important part of our lives. I was born and raised in Western Pennsylvania, and now I live outside of Houston, Texas. At home, I am trying to get as many local cemeteries listed as possible. I am currently focusing on "forgotten" and out of the way cemeteries in East Texas. I also travel quite a bit with my job, so in the evenings on the road, I visit local cemeteries and try to fulfill photo requests. I also travel back to Western PA frequently and try to get cemeteries there.

I try my best to try and find out as much as possible about each person using public records, obituaries, etc. However, I know that I will make mistakes. PLEASE let me know if there are any errors so that I can correct them.

Transfers: Please follow the FAG guidelines for transfers. If the person memorialized is not a direct relative - as defined by FAG - please do not ask for transfers.

=============================
The greatest thing about love is that no matter how many ways you divide it, it never gets smaller.

Margaret Lucille Cortes Stark
I am speaking to her daughter as I am typing this.

She has a brother Armand Cortes but legally changed his name in Harris County, Houston, Texas to His Mothers Maiden last name Ramsey.

He was known as Armand Ramsey and retired from the post office. He was a Veteran and belong to the Anerican Legion on Parker Road in Houston, Texas. He was know as Pete? Or something like that.

Armand (Cortes) Ramsey was married twice.

Second wife was Beulah Kidder Ramsey.from Beaux Bridge, La, was married the first time to a Landry. Her cousin is related to Policians. She was Spanish and German.and spoke French.

The year before Katrina I Found the entire Cortes/Kramer family in Bayou Beauf La. There is a book written by Martin Cotes and Armand was the Missing link due to the name change.

I put on the first Family reunion in 200 years there at the volunteer fire department.

His sons Glenn Allen and Wayne Ramsey are still alive along with Margarets children Wanda Reevs and Robert Stark.

Family Tree has the book on the Cortes/Kramer.

Thank you.

Your information on John is:

Son of John Riley Kelley & Martha Arabella (McCaskill) Kelley. Brother of John Riley Kelley. Mother of Mary Eunice Shilcutt, Malcolm Wesley Kelley, Eleanor Blasdell & Katherine Louise (Kelley) Richey. Husband of Bessie Kelley. Father of Ella Mae Kelley.

I Understand Son of, and Brother of.

But Mother of? You have Father of below.

I will do more research on my own and see if I can untangle the mistake.

RE: BOSTICK MEMORIAL # 61264215
Hello. His great great great granddad Matthew Denny Bostick (I believe his was great x 3) was my great great great granddaddy Nathaniel Alexander Bostick's brother. We were great cousins! I actually still have a letter Rhnea sent to me years ago, discussing our family history, and I met him several years ago when he came to Tennessee. He was very nice, and I was saddened to hear of his passing. Nathaniel is on Find-A-Grave if you want to read about him, as well as are brothers Matthew Denny, Chesley Butler, Alfred, and Ann Bostick Poteete.
