Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have done family research for over 30 years. I have 17,400+ names in my family tree database. Someone asked, "When will you be finished?" My answer, "The day I die." Then someone can post my memorial at Little River - Wilson Valley Cemetery.

Paternal Names: Tippit, Roberts, Brundrett, Collard, Cook, Cash, Stanford, Davis, and others.

Maternal Names: Henderson, Johnson, Marks, Pricer, Gallman, McGregor, Sanders, Thornton, Robertson, and more.

Wife's Family: Moseley, Crow, Grubbs, Adams, Veal, Mabry, Clinard, Baird, and more.

Cemeteries of Interest:
Little River - Wilson Valley, I have three sir-names that have five consecutive generations buried there. One of those sir-names has a 7th generation buried there. There will be the 6th generation buried there, but none of us have died yet.

Other Bell County Cemeteries have my kin buried there. Dyess Grove, Dyess Family, Holland, Bellwood, Hillcrest, Greathouse, North Belton, and others.

Milam County: Locklin, Walkers Creek, and others.

Houston Area: Woodlawn, Houston National, and others.

A great disappointment is the "Unmarked Grave". Too many times we have a strong idea were someone is buried, but how do we know for sure?

RE: Willie Walter Ballard
Your invitation is so kind! I have just returned home to Florida from the Ballard reunion on July 6th in Elgin. We had 5 generations, including Willie Walter's last living child, Viola. She is the last of her generation, I am sorry to say.

RE: Willie Walter Ballard
What a nice memory. My mother said that they called his wife "Aunt May" and that she was a nice lady. I don't know that they saw their grandfather all that much as kids, because his kids were angry that he divorced their mother. But I do know that he lived his last years with my mother's family, so I guess that some of the kids got over it! :)

Thank you for posting the picture of Willie. I had never seen a color picture of my great grandfather. Did Maurie go by May?
