Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm a preservationist and historian descended from many generations in Texas.

I was so happy to find some "lost" ancestors through Find A Grave. I joined the Find A Grave community as a volunteer, to help other people find where their ancestors and loved ones are buried, and to see photographs of markers in cemeteries they will never be able to visit personally. So many wonderful, dedicated people have volunteered time and money to make this website a success. I am disappointed it is now owned by a for-profit company, using the time and efforts of numerous volunteers.

Please give credit to the volunteers who have created memorials, and ask permission to use photographs. I will be happy to add information to memorials, with proper documentation, and to transfer memorials, following the guidelines of Find A Grave.

Find A Grave Memorial# 24842865

Robert is the son of my husband's ggggrandfather and we would love to be responsible for his memorial. If you could please transfer him to me, I would greatly appreciate it. We want to make the memorial ad-free, as we've done all of our memorials.

Thank you for your hard work and may God bless you always.

RE: John Davis memorial
Hi Sheron,

Your transferring the memorial to me came as a bit of a surprise, but okay. I'm not directly related to him, but I have stumbled across a bit of information on him. I admire your volunteerism in this project. If my contribution can help anyone, it's worth my effort.

Best wishes,

Information Needed
Dear Sheron Smith-Savage, I tried to provide information for Rear Jackson, 1888, Hemphill, Texas. You requested information on his wife (Mable Polley) and child (Thomas Owen Jackson). However I went through a lot of trouble to get an account. After I got and account and tried to log on to give you the information I could not! How do I get to add information. I also tried to search for Rear Jackson and was told "no record available for Rear Jackson." What is up with that? Rear also had a second wife; her name was Lorraine Edna Smith, I don't think she had any children. Thomas had a wife named Olivette Fleming. The lived in Oakland, Alameda, California and Lorraine lived in Berkeley, Alameda, California.

Caroline Harrington Chambers
Please forgive me for not getting to your edit for Caroline Harrington Chambers until this morning. I had a death in the family and have been dealing with other matters. I gave up trying to sleep last night and got up about 4 am and took care of about 50 edits including yours. I hope you were not offended by my tardiness.
