Simply enjoy genealogy and preserving history.|
I make mistakes if you tell me, I will fix them.
If they are family, I will gladly transfer.
My aim is to honor the past. Items added to biographies are typically information I receive via email from unknown contributors and post to memorial. I do NOT fact check so take it for what it's worth...further research.
THE STORY TELLERS by unknown
We are the chosen. My feelings are, in each family, there is one who seems
called to find the ancestors. To put flesh on their bones and make them live
again, to tell the family story and to feel that somehow they know and
approve. To me, doing genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts but,
instead, breathing life into all those who have gone before. We are the
storytellers of the tribe. All tribes have one.
We have been called, as it were, by our genes. Those who have gone before
cry out to us: Tell our story.

|Ruby Denton||Mary A. Davis, Memorial # 35824320, Grice Cemetery|
I would like to know if her maiden name is Penthouse.
|Ruby Denton||Mary A. Davis|
The other three siblings noted on the site are also children of J. W. and Mary A. Davis. (Infant son, 1893-1893; Otho B., 1894-1899; and Ina, 1903-1904. I did not have this information but it is correct.
|Ruby Denton||Mary A. Davis|
The tombstone inscription is Mary A., wife of J.W. Davis. My records show her as the first wife of John William (Will) Davis. They had the following children: Viola Mary Davis, 1896-1989;Zula Davis, b. 1897, Livie Davis, b. 1900; Rose Davis, b. 1902, and Vida Davis, b. 1904; and Annie May, b. 1908. Mary died in 1908 and J. W. subsequently married Opal Holder, and six more children were born to them.
I do not know Mary A.'s parents names.

I am a Vermont Civil War Buff and am presently working on a project to identify the last resting place of many of our "old soldiers". Hoit Charles Stevens is one of those patriots. May I use the photo you contributed to his Find A Grave memorial page, to post on the Vt.C.W. site? ( www.vermontcivilwar.org)
You would receive credit for this.
Thank you for your consideration.
|Iris Scott||Memorial# 35881929 incorrect maiden name|
Memorial# 35881929 for Bula Bell Barnett Brice has an incorrect maiden name. It should be Burnett. She was the daughter of Daniel Burnett Memorial# 35426539 and Ella David Moon Memorial# 35426559. She was my Grand Aunt.

William R Sneed Born 17 Aug 1888 and died 11 Apr 1905 Buried in Soules Chapel Cemetery Gilmer, Tx
Children: Myrtle and William R
There is another William Roland Snead born 17 Aug 1878 and died 11 Apr 1905 Buried in Clearwater Cemetery Clearwater, Tx
Children mentioned in notes are Myrtle and William R
These are too much alike to be two different people. I noticed that your Gilmer, Tx William Sneed has no photo of the tombstone where the other one does. Also there is a William R.Snead born 15 Aug 1905 (the son?) is buried in Soules Cemetery with photo of tombstone (Memorial 5552571)
Can you check them out and let me know what you think? These are distant cousins and am trying to put something together for my 1st cousin great grandmother who was a Snead.Sorry this is so long! bobbie

Carol, I have been looking for my G-grandfather Thomas Jefferson Wood for a very long time, he died in Lindale TX in 1891, I have no luck tracing him , so I started looking for my G-grandmother Rebecca she died after 1900. I think this Rebecca is mine, the DOB is not right (1832) the DOD would be right. Do you know who would be next to her? I am thinking if that is my Rebecca Thomas is probably next to her. Is there anyway I could check on that? I live in AZ and have written numbers letters and made calls. I just don't know what to do. I will be waiting to hear from you.
