Bio and Links
I have been doing genealogy for since 2002. My husband is adopted and so I started by looking for his birth family and got hooked. Since then I have been locating his families headstones and posting my families, too.

If I have a memorial, that belongs to your family and it is not part of my family, please ask me and I will transfer that person to you.

Hi Joye,

I noticed you created a record for my great great grandmother Sarah Boone Ramsey. Her memorial number is 97282315. I visited the Mt. Joye cemetery in Rarden, OH over the weekend but was unable to locate her grave. I'm wondering if her stone is one that is unreadable. If you could assist me further in finding her grave I would greatly appreciate it.

RE: Petar and Ivana Car
Any time. You don't need to bother asking for locations yourself. Just email me the memorial numbers you need and I'll get them for you. I usually get them the same day or next day. If you request it, it may take a lot longer if someone else claims it.

It was a pleasure to find him. Hope the photo is good enough.

RE: Durrett
Oh we are not talking about moving bodies. We are talking about ignoring the cemetery and builDing a parking lot over it. We have spoken with an attorney, are aware of Texas law "protecting Historic cemeteries", have the city arborist involved because of the removal of 5 huge post oaks, a violation of Dallas city ordinances, applied for a Historic Designation with the state last August, have spoken with local media, etc.
The city tells us it is a civil dispute ($1000s of dollars in court costs). State law says disturbing a grave without a court order is a jail felony under state law. But no one appears interested yet in enforcing the law.

More later, Joe and Donna

RE: Thomas C Durrett

We are currently desperately trying to save this cemetery from being paved over by the current owner of the land surrounding the cemetery which could be very costly. We will get back to you with further discussions of why we believe that these people are buried here. BTW, we have spoken with descendants of Richard Haines Durrett who say he is buried in Grayson County, Texas. Rice lived in Aledo in Parker County when he died. We do not know where he is buried. He briefly owned the land surrounding the cemetery after buying it from Thomas Smith, Jr., before losing it in a Sheriff's sale for unpaid taxes. He could be buried here or with his dad. More about Thomas Durrett later.

I check the funeral home records for the parents of Henry Albert Hite and his parents are not listed.
Sorry I could not help you.

You are very welcome. My father is buried at SFNC, and it is always an honor to fulfill requests there.

Joy, Raulino & Mary already have memorials but the names are spelled differently. Rollin J Silveira is 23908008 and Mary F is 23908011. I think the photo I took is better, so I'll post it on those 2 memorials along with the one that's already there. If you're sure the names you have are correct, you can request edits which are now being handled quite quickly. Alternately, I can also add the photo here, but I'm sure these are the same memorials.
