Bio and Links
Bio Photo Sabine County Texas cemeteries were indexed by me and a couple of helpers in 2000-2002. There are 150 identified cemeteries/burial places with 25 of these being almost lost with only faint signs of burial, to being completely lost with only a general knowledge of where the cemetery was located. I personally walked and indexed more than 135 of these. Many thanks to others that are interested in Sabine Co., TX, because of them, much progress has been made in making these memorials available to others. I am adding pictures of the markers I have taken, corrections and links to family members.

I have many of the Sabine County cemeteries completely photographed and hope to someday complete all of them. I have completed photographing the following cemeteries:

Abney-Scurlock Cemetery
Alford Cemetery

I no longer live in Sabine County, but I have lots of Sabine County family information. I am continually researching Sabine County families and linking families. I would be honored to take care of any Sabine County memorial that you would like to transfer to me.

I am one of the "Find A Grave Keepers" for Sabine County, Texas.

I have walked where my ancestors walked, laughed where my ancestors laughed, and cried where my ancestors cried.

Kay, when you get a chance, check out Memorial # 26624212, Do you think someone needs to tell this person that she totally has the wrong parents? Kay

This was from you.

Their suggestion:
Please check....looks like you have made a duplicate memorial:

Greg Malone
Hello Kay -
Transferred Greg Malone's memorial to you. I just do not have words at this time. I left a line on it which you may remove if you wish. I have admired your cemetery work and dedication for years and know you will take excellent care of his memorial. Sincerely - skyquest

RE: Turners in Brookeland
Hi again Kay,
I had already added them, with pics, a couple of years ago.

Today, I added the death certificates and a disclaimer note in their Bio sections. See: Find A Grave#103893469 & Find A Grave#103893470.

I think our best solution is for you to reconnect yours both back to the Brookeland Cemetery and then I can add a crosslink to the originals there and you can do the same to Evergreen, if you wish, and perhaps a note in their Bio section.

Sorry to add to your extra work.

Levi Danie Peavy
I was wondering how you are related to Levi Daniel Peavy? He is my 4th great grandpa.. Via my maternal grandpas paternal line [my grandpa was Jerry Littleton Peavy, his dad was Clement [or Clemmie or Clem] Peavy, his dad was Pearl L. Peavy, his dad was Levi Daniel Peavy Jr., his dad was Levi Daniel Peavy Sr [born in the late 1700's].. I think that is my 4th grandpa. Or my 5th. I dunno. My brain has shut down. :)

Anyways, super curious.. Also, my grandpa, Jerry, hired the Utah Genealogy Research ppl back in like 1993.. They struggled to find info on the Peavy's.. But they eventually did find a bit of info. I have info on.. Martha Olivia Jane Castles, who married Pearl L. Peavy.. And I have info on.. I think it was her dad. Or his dad. I don't have the info in front of me. Just going on memory.

If you want, feel free to email me @ - I can provide you with whatever Peavy info I have.. It is not much, but it is something..

Thank you so much Kay for trying to help me Locate the grave site of My Great Grandmother. I guess it may remain a mystery for some time yet.

I really admire what you are doing. I is such a great comfort to others like myself who want to feel more connected to our past.
Thanks Again,

P.S. If you ever run across a Bula(sp.) Toney gravesite in Texas from about 1914-1915 please let me know!
