Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been into genealogy for some 50 years and have never lost interest in helping myself and others find their roots. I find it a huge mystery game with many surprising discoveries.

TRANSFER REQUESTS: Please request if you are really a relative and will do something constructive with the memorial. If you are just a close friend, etc., the same goes for you. I will never refuse a request for valid reasons.

CORRECTIONS: additions, & family links when asked but no promises if you just send me an email instead of using the edit link. Use the Edit tab at the top right of memorial, then the Suggest A Correction option. Now we have the auto edit request and permission ability so that makes it easier. You can upload your pictures directly to the memorials, but PLEASE take pride on what you enter. Photos should be carefully composed and submitted with the highest resolution that FAG will accept.

RE: Burial: Unknown
Thank you! That worked. The only thing was that the choice of "unknown burial" was not available. I chose the closest option and explained further on the second category.
Thank you again for your prompt response.

Burial: Unknown
Hi. I have seen several memorials with "Burial: unknown" and today ran across yours for James Sidney Bonham, #63016943. I have looked, but haven't found, instructions for how to set up such a memorial. It would be a nice thing to for certain relatives when it's clear the burial hasn't been located and probably won't be located. Can you direct me to a tutorial or instruct me how it's done?

RE: Help: Tom C. Thompson
The 1920 Federal Census shows (note arrows):

Birth Year: abt 1897
Birthplace: Texas

Prior to that the 1900 Federal Census shows:

The 1930 and 1940 Federal Census reflects more of the same, with children added. I wont clutter this message unless you want them.

The 1910 Federal Census for Thomas C Thompson shows:
Name: Thomas C Thompson
Age in 1910: 35
Birth Year: abt 1875
Birthplace: Texas
Home in 1910: Canyon Ward 3, Randall, Texas
Race: White
Gender: Male
Relation to Head of House: Head
Marital Status: Married
Spouse's Name: Anna L Thompson
Father's Birthplace: Denmark
Mother's Birthplace: Denmark
Neighbors: View others on page
Household Members:
Name Age
Thomas C Thompson 35
Anna L Thompson 34
Clarence L Thompson 13 <---
Ora E Thompson 10
Lillian C Thompson 6
John W Leonard 78
Note that, While Clarence is shown, there is no Tom C Thompson.

That pretty much constitutes my case. Please let me know what you think. Again, I appreciate your consideration,

RE: Burial site?
No, I wish I did. Andrew could very well be at Timmons or even Central Valley unmarked, or even cremated and scattered. I don't know what became of Melissa. I believe she may have remarried. Shasta County Births record Andrew having another child by Luemalia (Freitas) later in 1941. I have checked with the Shasta County Historical Society. They have nothing, unless he is in their Obituary Books, in which case I would have to look upon my next visit (August). Happy Hunting!

Help: Tom C. Thompson
I was researching my grand aunt Tom Beck Cook 1896-1968 (yes, that was the name her parents gave her) who married Clarence Leonard Thompson. They lived and died in Canyon, Randall County, Texas.

Looking for Tom Beck Cook Thompson's grave, I came across memorial 71941501 for Thomas C Thompson, which list both of the above as children.

Is it possible that the Tom C Thompson was actually Clarence's wife and not a sibling? I think it is probable but I'm not certain, given the puzzling names.

Thanks for your consideration,

Grave Locations
Did the person who walked the cemetery happen to give the locations for the graves? Or is there an indication of those who are buried nearby? I still want to find the locations for Thompson and Collins. Did this person supply a copy to the cemetery office? I realize it's a possibility that the manager doesn't have a strong desire to make sure every single grave is on record for anyone to find. That is why I was thinking of doing something to remedy that because of my frustrations when trying to fulfill photo requests.

RE: Dreamland Cemetery
Okay, I have gone back and looked at comments about two people - Thompson and Collins. I thought I put that info on the photo requests. Looks like I also sent you the comments. However, my intent was not for you to remove those memorials, but to indicate my findings, nothing more. If this is what you are referring to, I apologize for the confusion. Perhaps, I should make an explanation rather than being so brief in my statements. Lesson learned. If there is anything else, please let me know. I apologize if I have gotten in your business inappropriately. I in no way want to disrespect you or the hard work you have put into this. SherralB

RE: Dreamland Cemetery
Cordell let's me look in his notebook to locate the graves. The help I get may be answering my questions about certain ones but really not much more. For those not in the book, I have researched looking for relatives that they may be buried with. I have found several just by doung that. I then give him that info to add to his book. Which ones have I done something with that you didn't agree on? Where are the records of the person who has already walked the cemetery? If this has already been done, then I won't do it as planned. By the way, I don't have a problem with what you have done. In fact, just recently I thought about asking you how you got a lot of your info for creating the memorials. The only ones I found a mistake on was the Money family, which I had to stay focused on just to get it straight. Thanks for all the work you have done there. SherralB

Anna Lou Johnston Price
Find A Grave has Anna Lou's husband to be James E Price. My research has her married to Hubert O Price (Census of 1940 and 1930). Her death certificate shows her as divorced. James E Price was her brother in law and his death certificate shows his as a widower and he died nine years prior to Anna. I can not find marriage records for James and Anna. The only death records I can find for Hubert is in Reading Ma. which is a long way from Canyon City. Sometimes in researching my family I seam to be chasing my tail.
