Bio and Links
Bio Photo My step mother started taking me to the cemetery when I was a teenager. All her family came from Patrick Co., Virginia, so they are buried up around Dry Pond or Holt Ridge. I've always loved history and found there was so much of it here in the cemetery.
My family names are:
Needham (Surry Co. NC),
Adams (Patrick Co. VA & Surry Co. NC),
Hunter (Surry Co. NC)
Wear (Blount Co. TN, Cherokee Co. AL, Bradley Co. AR, Bexar Co. TX )
Grant & Walker (SC to Habersham Co. GA)
Bowles (Green Co. GA)
Munson, Watts,Patton, Patty, Padier,Goins. (La, OK, Ato Co. TX Bexar Co. TX)
Holt, Goings, Goins, Bowman, Frye........
and many others that I do for friends and family. I have found wonderful cousins I never new I had.
I am currently working on the families of Gonzales Co. TX.
I've been adding the census records more for my benefit but also for those looking for family members. With so many families to research it helps to keep them straight in my head.
Please fell free to use any of the obits or picture I've posted, if it helps your research then I'm happy to share.
Some of the obits I've posted may be offensive to some but we have to look at them has a part of history and ignorance. I hope they will help someone in their research, to connect to a family member.
I live in Gonzales TX and I am documenting the City Cemeteries here in town. If you have any information on people buried here I would love to add it.
I will be happy to transfer any of your family over to you or take pictures for you. I'm not picky about how close a kin they were. Just that you maintain them.
I'm in Surry Co. NC and Patrick Co. VA once a year and will be happy to look for headstones for anyone while I'm up there. I also have the cemetery book for Patrick Co. VA, and the Surry Co. NC Heritage book 1 & 2 and the History of Gonzales Co. book.
Feel free to use any of my pictures or research. They are there for all to share.

Frank Ault Prather

There is a "Child Prather" buried in the Runge City cemetery. Born and died 1941. Trying to find the parents. I know from census records that Frank and Effie lived in Karnes County in 1940.

The headstone is hard to read, but believe it says child "DR & F???"

Do you know this is a child of this couple.
