I am more than happy to make corrections to any of the memorials I have entered; however, I would really appreciate your giving me a way to communicate with you if you have messages blocked and no email address on your profile. I try to let you know when I have completed the correction or if I have a question.

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. However, I would appreciate your using "the Golden Rule" when asking me to delete a memorial. Most people already do and don't have to be reminded. Just want you to know that I will never intentionally be rude to anyone. God bless!

I have lived in Sweetwater, Texas all but four years of my life.

A geneology nut, I love to help people find their family information through this volunteer work.

I am the Find-A-Grave coordinator for the Nolan County Cemeteries. The Sweetwater Cemetery is my favorite (my daughter, father & grandparents are buried there). Outlying Nolan County cemetery photos can be made as time and travel permits.

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)

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).

My families are (to name a few):

HEALER
Cardwell * Hammond * Turner * Elam * Fry * Douglass

COOK
Hughes * Thomas * Beard * Willingham * Folmar

DAVIS
Free * Wyly * Bates * Stewart * Powell

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

THE RECORDING OF A CEMETERY
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.

Thanks for making the edits for me!
Thank you so much for taking time to make the edits for my kin. I just sent you another edit to link a husband and wife. I will wait on the bio information, though, until I ask some other cousins. :)

I sent you an email without all of the subject line.
I just sent you an email but forgot to put all the words in the subject line. The subject is "Opinion about linking". That makes it sound like a spam email, but it is not.

I wanted to ask your opinion about whether to have you link a husband to his wife. There were some tragic circumstances that made me wonder if they should be linked. But they are buried in the same plot, so perhaps they should be linked.

I like having my family linked at find a grave--but I am not sure about this one.

The email explains more about it and who I am talking about, but I don't want to post the information here.

Thanks for adding their memorials to find a grave as well as their photos.

No worries....:) Davis is a real common name and I didn't want to assume anything.

Thank you for look in the newspaper archives. Jesse is my husband's grandmother's brother. So I guess you would say great uncle.

I would love it if you could transfer his memorial to me. Once again thank you so very much for all your time and efforts.

Blessings
Teresa

Good evening,
I am doing family history and I (my husband) have a Jesse Davis in my family. He was born June 21, 1935 and died at age nine June 30,1944, in Nolan, Sweetwater Texas.

Just curious if this is the same Jesse Davis.....How did your Jesse die?

Sincerely,

Teresa Gover

Janie,
Thank you so much for looking for her grave. I understand tha she has no marker. I appreciate all you did to get a photo, but we just can't work a miracle, when there is no marker.
Thanks again for your effort.

cATHERINE ELIABETH COULTER
I found Robert Coulter and his daugther Nancy in the Roby Cemetery, I believe Uncle Tom Coulter is there also-- Thomas Jefferson COULTER(Jan 1, 1849 - Jul 8, 1934)but I don't find Catherine Elizabeth Coulter (married name Luttrell which she did not use at the end) is not buried there even though the death certificate is not there, nor do I find her in the Balch Cemetery with her mother America Clift Coulter. I am curious is she there without a headstone?? The rest of the family was:
Nancy Rebecca , F (1845-1900)
William Clift , M (1848-)
Thomas Jefferson , M (1849-1934)
James Warren , M (1851-)
Catherine Elizabeth , F (1853-1922)
M. S. Robert , M
Moses Brooks , M (~1860-)
Joseph Johnson , M (1862-1944)
Margaret Ann , F (1864-1901)
Charles B. , M (1867-1870)
