Bio and Links
Bio Photo In the early 1980's, I curiously began searching for my ancestors. It has gone from curiosity to a passion all consuming. There is always something new to discover!! I owe it all to my BFF, Geneva!!
For those of you who sit in front of a cemetery book or a newspaper obituary column copying deaths into a cemetery, I truly feel sorry for you. For those of you who complain about those of us who have "Unknown Burials". I believe the name of this program is "Find A Grave". The hopes of family researchers is that some one some where will FIND our lost ancestor and may even find a tombstone of that loved one. As for me, I am so proud that this site has come about where I can share my family with others and hopefully find long lost family that I would never have found otherwise. Thank you, FindAGrave.
If you come across someone I have entered in a cemetery that is your ancestor and you have pictures or a bio you would like to add, OR you would like a transfer, don't hesitate to contact me through the EDIT button.
PLEASE-NO death certificates on my memorials without first contacting me and getting my permission!!
Personal information should be kept personal.
VOLUNTEER PHOTOGRAPHERS: I appreciate your enthusiasm in taking pictures of cemeteries, BUT I do not appreciate additional tombstone photos on memorials when there is already a clear tombstone picture for that memorial.
FAMILY PHOTOS: I invite you to enjoy the family pictures posted, but ask that they not be copied and placed on any other website.

Era Brister
Rats, no I didn't know that I had added a duplicate memorial for Era. Sorry, I must have had a brain dump. I am deleting the memorial I created. Thanks for bringing this to my attention.

RE: Memorial #128050686
haha. whoops I see you posted it. I was 12 last time I was out at the cemetery, and I don't remember seeing one for him, but I could be mistaken. I know that Granny Willie doesn't have a headstone, but when we head out there, I'll get a picture of both the West plot & where she is as well. I have a really great picture of her when she was young that I'll post soon too.
Here's what I have found on ancestry about Margaret: in 1870 she's listed near Hearne in Robertson county with David with David Jr, Taylor, Isaac, Jasper & John. 1860, as Margaret Fairchild in Homer, Angelina county with William, Elizabeth, Henry J, Ruben J, Emily C, Martha, & Eliza C. They were married in 1863 in Angelina county right? Says she was 15 in 1860 and born in Louisiana. In 1850, in Tyler, TX as Fairchilds with William, Jane A, Henry J, George W, Ruben, Louisa & Emily. Also a group of Franks in the same house as well. Also says Louisiana as birthplace for her. Another tree says her parents were William Henry Fairchild (1803-1867) & Louisa Elizabeth Lee (1803-1847) siblings: Jane A, William Lee, Samuel Abraham, James Benjamin, George Washington, Henry J, Ruben J & Louisa J.

RE: Memorial #128050686
Hmmm. I don't think there is one there. Last time we were out there was 1997 when my Uncle Billie Joe was buried. My Uncle bobby didn't have one at the time either, but his wife has since gotten one for him & Billie Joe has his VA stone. We're going out there soon, and I'll recheck because I know they are all in the same plot. If not, we're going to make sure that he gets his headstone. Mom & I were actually discussing the need for them both to have one. Is there any way you could send me that application? I have her death certificate, I don't know why I didn't check the burial part. Thanks!!!

RE: Margaret West (#52746068)
Your welcome. Yes ma'am I am. My great-great grandfather was David & Margaret's son Jasper. Haven't had any luck locating his grave, and probably won't. My grandma thinks he was buried on their farm in Jesse, Oklahoma. I know that the farm was an oilfield later on. Jasper's wife Sarah is buried in Jesse Cemetery, but by the time of Jasper's death (we think around 1940, haven't found any records pertaining to his death, but my Grandma remembers him and she would've been 4 in 1940) the family had a lot more kids and probably couldn't afford to put him in a plot. Either that or he is beside her & there is no record.

Hello Kay, I work about a mile from there and I'll double check just to make sure, but when I photographed it I don't recall them but there are some sites marked with bricks and unreadable funeral home markers, maybe I can get the funeral home name off of one. The only funeral homes around there I know of is Dorman funeral home and Claybar funeral home.

RE: Photo
I was happy to be able to find and photograph her marker for you. It is a joy for me to be outside in a cemetery on a sunny day.

Thomas Willie Jackson"
I'll have to wait till I go to Luling again. The headstone is imposable to read once it's down sized. Sorry
