Bio and Links
Bio Photo First of all let me start by thanking the findagrave members who are the boots on the ground who are logging data and creating memorials, your work is invaluable to us all and no words can express my appreciation. I've seen some of my ancestors added to this site I thought I would never ever see.
I am a retired business man living near San Antonio, TX. As my tree grows larger so do the names of families I never knew I was related too.
My primary family names are Echols,Brett,Butsch, and Keith.
Love to hear from you and am willing to help in anyway I can, this is a huge group effort! Findagrave is an incredible resource and will only continue to be so in comiing years.

RE: Memorial 132427866
Hi, I photographed the whole block and used the cemetery records and they had him as Oscar. If you go to and click on geneology, you can put Pitts in and see that that is what they have for him. If that isn't right, you can put in an edit for a correction. Kay

Harrison Peppers
Thank you for looking. Somehow my records indicate he played ball in 1894 so I would have been looking in the wrong place. Thank you.

Still...thank you VERY much for posting his portrait.

RE: Sketch of my Great Grandfather
Thank you so much Gordon. I've been searching for a photo of the team he played pro ball with in 1894 or 1895 (the name escapes me momentarily) - no such luck so far. Louisville Cardinals - Any ideas?

I appreciate this photo you posted very much.

Sketch of my Great Grandfather
You posted a sketch of my great grandfather William Harrison Pepper(s) on his findagrave memorial. He's buried at Webb City Cemetery. I am wondering where you obtained it and if you have any additional information about him.

Hope to hear from you.

How wonderful to read this! May I include your words on his Memorial? Another printer in the Dunlap Family! It is an ongoing theme. Please let me know if I can use your comments! They were so nice!

Curious re the providence of the photo of my relative, buried in Mt. Olivet cemetery in Illinois and welcome any information, especially re the baseball connection.

The 1900 census has him as a police officer.

Thank yo so much for the picture of my grandfather. We have been looking for a picture of him in his baseball uniform, but have not found one yet. Your photo is the closest we have come. There is an informal picture of the 1901 Baltimore Orioles but we are not able to identify him in it. Do you have any information you can share?
Thank you

Frank Eastley
Dear Mr. Echols,

Thank you so much for adding a poster of a baseball card of my great uncle Frank "Pat" Eastley. My father remembers his Dad playing catch with his brother-in-law Frank in the street in front of my Dad's house after Frank's baseball career ended. Frank worked as a policeman for the city of Pittsburgh after he left baseball but my Dad thought Frank always missed pitching.
