Bio and Links
Bio Photo ***Please note...I am still active! We have had health issues in the family and I am quite behind on my "work" with FAG! I am once again working on my corrections and additions. Please have patience, I will get everything taken care of ASAP! (dated 10/1/13)

While helping my aunt with the genealogy of our family, I became interested in Find A Grave. I decided to take my research one step further, and research the cemeteries where our family members are buried. In the process of doing this, I found that I can help others who are trying to locate photos of where their loved ones are buried. This has already proved to be a wonderful way to help others as well as a great way to spend my Saturdays.

I think most of all, my intrests have grown to include childrens memorials and the very old cemeteries that have so much character.

If I have entered any of your family or friends and you would like me to add additional information to their Bio's, just send me a message via the "Edit" button on the memorial page. I will be glad to make any necessary changes or additions.

Evergreen cemetery
Hi, I believe that Evergreen cemetery (San Patricio) may have been called "Odem" cemetery at one time because I found that an obit for Alfronia Vickers listed her in Odem cemetery and then one for her husband James also mentioned Odem cemetery.
Just thought someone might want to put it on the caption of the picture leading to the cemetery.
thanks, Diane
