Bio and Links
Bio Photo Note relating to Fannin County, Texas cemeteries: they have a very nice website that may immediately offer the photo you are looking for. I am trying to get them to transfer these to FindAGrave website. Find it here:
Photo Takers: please note flour and chalk and other previously accepted methods will actually damage old stone; please read these hints for using tin foil, and for flashlights to help light hard to read stones:

Please have compassion for others and if you cannot reply in a positive way, then don't reply at all.

My husband lost his battle with esophageal cancer Nov. 2014, his memorial # 139923728.

We are all fighting our own private battles and don't need the negativity. If I don't thank you promptly, please don't be harsh. I always thank volunteers as soon as I can.

Please be kind in your messages to everyone on the site.

I will put in a blanket THANK YOU here for all who do my edits/corrections; I submit too many edits and corrections to open and reply to each one, but that doesn't mean I don't appreciate your time and effort in doing them.

I am a member of and have had my DNA analysis completed, which connected me to many, many relatives, both close and distant cousins, and many I have made connections with. It also enabled me to find additional relatives on my tree because we are linked by our DNA. My personal heritage shows Great Britain and Ireland as my distinct lineages.

** From Wichita, Manhattan, and Wamego, Kansas, living in Dallas, TX area (Garland, Sachse, Caddo Mills, Celeste) since 1982. My paternal ancestors came from Ireland (Conley/Etchison/Loy/Grimes) and my maternal ancestors from Switzerland/Germany/England (Shoup/Brandon/Elledge/Boone) who migrated to Kentucky/Tennessee then to Kansas. Daniel Boone is connected in both my maternal Brandon (Edward 'Neddie') and also my paternal Conley line (Daniel & Edward's brother George W), and there is also a Lincoln connection I am sorting out because they all lived near to each other.

My husband's paternal ancestors (Siebert, Schmidt) were Russian Mennonites from Karolswalde region, Russia who migrated to Pawnee Rock, Kansas in 1875 to avoid religious persecution and brought with them the Turkey Red Winter Wheat to the U.S. His maternal ancestors immigrated from France (Breault, LeBlanc) to Kankakee, Illinois, then to Clyde-Clifton, Kansas, a French community.

Thank you for the "link" to Paul's father. We have added an obit to his memorial that might provide you with additional info to his siblings.

I'll be glad to make the edits for the Jenkins family in King cemetery and if you let me know if you're related I'll transfer management. I came across them when researching a couple of my ancestors buried there.

I couldn't open the link you sent -- it was a protected Ancestry account -- but if you want to copy and paste and send the obituary to me I'll be happy to post it.

You got me quite curious, though,and I did some research. Turns out water hemlock -- the plant, not the tree -- is the most toxic indigenous plant in North America. Back in the day people would mistake it for parsnip or even artichoke and end up poisoning themselves, often fatally. Still happens occasionally in places like Maine.

I guess that's probably what happened to young William -- makes it seem a little better than someone deliberately poisoning him.

Thank you for the information. I read with interest the story of her husband, Charles Goodnight which led me to look her up in the Park City, Montana High School Yearbook. The photo I posted was of her entire class, so I cropped her from the rest as best I could. I also found information on Ancestry which I included.

I also corrected the DOD for John Mullinix and added the cemetery to my account for both people.

Thanks and have a great New Year!

Re: Mabel Williams
I knew Mabel for years before she died and I remember hearing about the murder suicide of her three sons. There names are:
Donald Roe Etchison (1927 - 1938)*
Russell E Etchison (1930 - 1938)*
Max D Etchison (1934 - 1938)*

and husband:
Lester Etchison (1906-1938) Memorial# 70706729

I have there memorial on there and pic. I will add this info to Mabel's memorial as well. I have lived 50 years in Williams and I lived at the bottom of the hill. He stopped at the store at the top of the hill to get the boys ice cream and then made them roll the windows up and came down the hill into the so sad. Mabel was such a sweet lady. Don't know why this happened. Thanks for your interest. If there is anything else I can do please write.

RE: Anna Iwen
Iwens in Minden Cemetery
Well... I had to stop uploading pics yesterday because I was confused as all heck.
It seems there were TWO men named Iwen Iwen both married to women named Anna.
There are the mother - father small stones to each side of the beautiful tree monument with no other info and also mother and father stones behind the large IWEN marker which have dates but no names. I'm assuming each pair are an Iwen & Anna.
The memorial for the Anna Iwen on the tree looks to be linked to the wrong Iwen Iwen husband, the dates don't match.
(are you as confused as I am now?)
I'm guessing this is your ancestry? You might want to verify the info and also cross reference with the IWEN's listed on the Minden Township internment list as that's how I determined which Anna was on the tree that previously had no dates on the memorial.
It looks like a memorial needs to be created for the Iwen Iwen on the monument tree. I also have a picture of Dorothy Iwen's grave who also needs a memorial. I have a pic of Roy's but didn't see Olga & Henry's, I'll look for them again next time I'm there.

Thank you for your information. I'm sure they bought a double headstone never anticpating they would not be buried together, which is a shame. I deleted mine and sent edit requests for the Florida addition to be updated. Thank you for noticing this. Cindy

Just thought to pass along the Minden Township Cemetery in Minden, IA now has a plot map and internment list online if you would like to see ancestor graves in proximity to each other or include plot #'s with your photo request.
