Bio and Links
Bio Photo PHOTOS: Any photo I have posted on Find-a-Grave is intended to be used...please consider this your permission to copy and/or post any of my photos.

DUPLICATES: I try my best to do a thorough check before entering any memorials. I will never intentionally create a duplicate, although sometimes it just happens with the delay in the Find-a-Grave system at times. Even if my memorial was entered first, I will usually delete IF the other memorial is complete. My interest is not in numbers but in the precious souls who walked among us on this earth and their descendants who may search for them in the future.

CORRECTIONS: I'll be happy to make corrections on any of my entries if needed, or I will gladly transfer memorials to family members (at my discretion when it involves my kinfolks). I would appreciate your using the "Edit" function to request corrections.

ABOUT ME: I have lived in Sweetwater, Texas all but four years of my life. I love to help people find their family information through this volunteer work.

MY FAMILIES: (just to name a few)

Cardwell * Hammond * Turner * Elam * Fry * Douglass

Hughes * Thomas * Kirkland * Lee * Beard * Willingham * Folmar

Free * Wyly * Bates * Stewart * Powell

Always interested in hearing from anyone with any connections to my families.

MY CEMETERY TIES: I have strong family ties to the following cemeteries:

* Sweetwater (Nolan County, TX)
* Old Bethel (Anderson County, TX)
* Frankston City (Anderson County, TX)
* Roby (Fisher County, TX)
* Rose Hill (Taylor County, TX)

By Thelma Greene Reagan

Today we walked where others walked
On a lonely, windswept hill;
Today we talked where other cried
For Loved Ones whose lives are stilled.

Today our hearts were touched
By graves of tiny babies;
Snatched from the arms of loving kin,
In the heartbreak of the ages.

Today we saw where the grandparents lay
In the last sleep of their time;
Lying under the trees and clouds -
Their beds kissed by the sun and wind.

Today we wondered about an unmarked spot;
Who lies beneath this hollowed ground?
Was it a babe, child, young or old?
No indication could be found.

Today we saw where Mom and Dad lay.
We had been here once before
On a day we'd all like to forget,
But will remember forever more.

Today we recorded for kith and kin
The graves of ancestors past;
To be preserved for generations hence,
A record we hope will last.

Cherish it, my friend; preserve it, my friend,
For stones sometimes crumble to dust
And generations of folks yet to come
Will be grateful for your trust.

Hello Janie,

Can you please transfer this memorial to me? This is my Aunt. My Father is Charles Bosarge and this is his Sister. I am trying to link them all to my Grandparents. Thank you.

Could you be so kind as to transfer my gr uncle and his wife to me. Henry and Bessie Morris: 15517077 & 15517071. Otherwise I sent you the links to Henry's parents Findagrave memorials for both. I have no idea where FamilySearch came up with the name Martha Graves for his mother. Indeed she is not and I never heard of her. His mom was nancy Louise Brady. Nancy's mother was named Anna Amelia Graves but that's the only "graves" link I know. When I was a child, my mom would take us from Lamesa to Sweetwater to visit Uncle Henry. I remember the tub of cool water beside his house from which we all drank.

Joe Sam Van Ness
Well, as I dig further I see you have Joe Sam Van Ness memorial 16122754, I know he is Aunt Edna's brother, so I bet I am right on her parents.
I will be in touch.

Edna Vanness Baucum
Janie, I think aunt Edna's (16489626) parents were William Van Ness 100957430 & Virginia Van Ness 100957430 buried in Mount Hope Cemetery here in Anson. I will drink coffee this morning with a man who I think can tell me for sure.
I was thinking the Vanness was originally separated.
The reason I am using the message instead of the edit, I just wanted to let you know but not add just yet until I make sure.
I think Sarah Hampton, aunt Edna's daughter, will know for sure, so if the man here doesn't know I will contact her.
