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.

Re Sarah Ann Kincaid
Sarah Ann Kincaid Born no later than 1843 in Kentucky (1880 abt 1841, 1900 Nov 1838, 1910 abt 1842, 1920 abt 1843 Censuses all in Denison Grayson County except 1880, Death Cert 12 Nov 1841), Died 7 Mar 1922 per DC. Father born in Kentucky. Married Rev. Andrew J Kincaid and buried with him, adopted Ida Daughtery in 1877.

Sarah Durrett Born 1845 in Tennessee (15 years old in 1860 Census per her mother), Died before 1885 (not alive to inherit when her mother died). Father born in Virginia.

Note several discrepancies between these two people. Pretty clear that they are not the same. Nothing personal here; just trying to keep the record straight. What info makes you so sure that they are the same. Also there are several family trees on that say her name is Hicks and father was Coleman Hicks and mother was Louisa Crutchfield.

I don't know any of these folks so someone must have sent me the wrong info. I have changed the wife to Blanche.

Sarah Boone Ramsey
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.

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.
