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: http://txfannin.org/cemeteries.php 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: https://forgottenstoriesdotcom.files.wordpress.com/2012/05/tombstone-photography-dos-and-donts.pdf
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 Ancestory.com 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.
Crouch Family IN Mt. View Pueblo Ora, Nora and Mary Crouch have no headstone. All of the headstones in Blocks A-Q have been photographed and posted on Find A Grave. FYI: montgomerysteward.com has an online index to burials at Mt. View. You can search by surname and/or Block and Lot. pueblolibrary.org has an online index to Pueblo Chieftain obits. On home page, look under search, then look for obituaries. If you find your name there is a place to request a free digital copy of the obit. If you write me at firstname.lastname@example.org I can send you a map of Blocks A-Q. jpk
Do you know if Infant Parish was a boy or a girl? The directory says it was a still born, but didn't indicate sex.
There are three other Parish's buried in Oak Hill who may be brothers: Byrd (b. 1874), James Henry (b. 1880), and Charles (b. 1876). Each of these is listed as being born in Kentucky however. Charles is listed as being born in Edmonson County KY.
There are no burials in Oak Hill for Parish's who would be of the age of the parents of Infant Parish. There is a burial in Locust Hill for "Elder Parish" who died 4/26/1924, with no age or birth date given, who could possibly be the father of Infant Parish.
Infant Parish photo I would like to fulfill the photo request for Infant Parish, b. & d. April 30, 1872 and is buried in Oak Hill Cemetery. The directory doesn't give the grave location. I see the note that someone checked two other Parish grave plots and didn't see a marker for Infant Parish.
There are a couple of old sections in Oak Hill Cemetery that are almost entirely infants. I have uploaded pretty much all the gravestones in those sections and none match that name - but there are many unmarked graves, especially those dating to the 1870's. If you like, I can take a photo of the most likely "infant section" and add it to the Child Parish memorial. Else, if you know the name of the parent(s) I could add a photo of their family plots. Let me know what you would like to do.
RE: Baby Boy Conley Did you check the caption? I'm sure this is correct. Babies rarely have inscriptions and if the parents are not at this cemetery, it could be a related family member. If you think it is another Conley (common name at Cavalry), I'll take it down.
Nancy Alford not found i saw where you searched the entire oakwood cemetery, louisburg, nc, and did not find nancy alford's grave. i am going there in the morning but i am thinking i will have no luck. that cemetery does not have an office where you can go and ask for the location of interments or does it? I will see what I can find out.
