Bio and Links
Bio Photo Please do not place Death Certificates on memorials I have created. I find it distasteful and disrespectful to the family.

Most of the people I have entered into Find A Grave are not my relatives nor did I know them. If you would like any of the memorials I have created let me know and I'll probably transfer them to you if they aren't my relatives.

A proud member of One Foot In The Grave.

The following link will display all of the cemeteries in Find A Grave that are in Harris County, Texas. From there you can get to any county and state to see their cemeteries.

Hi Bruce,
I'm attempting to locate the grave of my GGF who was the older brother of Matilda Baledge Hicks. He passed in 1941 in Mississippi Co., Arkansas and, according to family lore, was taken to KY for burial.

J. O's first wife, my GGM, was Ora Brame (1880-1923) whose mother was a Mary Dismukes (and I notice a few "Dismukes" in the same cemetery where Matilda is buried). Ora passed in Arkansas in 1923 but I can't locate her burial location.

Anyway, if by chance you are related to Matilda Hicks I thought you might have some idea on how to pursue this fellow and/or his wife.
Thanks,
Les Baledge

RE: Sally Evans
When Sally was born in 1902 Alice was in Nueces county. Since March 1911 Alice has been in Jim Wells county, which was created from a part of Nueces Co. The drop-down menu at FindaGrave did not offer Alice as an option for Nueces Co, only for Jim Wells.
Thanks for all you do at FindaGrave and for being so careful before editing information.

Hi Bruce,
I see that you have a page for Leona Schaefer Anderson Mathis and she was a Find A Grave contributor. She had a page for one of my ancestors. Do you know if there is any way in which that ancestor's page could be transferred to me?

Hi Bruce,

I would be honored to take this memorial. This is my Mom, who died when I was 11 y/o. I have spent many hours at this graveside.
