Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am researching Byrne/Byrn, Fifield/Pease/Smith, Cowden/Couden, Burtnett/Burnett, Coy/Champlin, Card, Cahoon and the Colquhoun Clan and also enjoy visiting cemeteries in different regions with my husband and fulfilling photo requests. If there is a memorial you would like updated or transferred, please let me know.

Feel free to use the tombstone photos my husband has taken that I have submitted or sent to you, in any way you choose, except for creating duplicate Find A Grave memorials or adding them to your own memorials for which you have asked me to delete mine, or which you have subsequently deleted after my transferring the memorials to you. Please contact me about using any cemetery profile photos or family photos. Thank you.

RE: John Bailey
Hi again: check your email. I sent you an "invitation" from ancestry.com so you can access the Joseph Bailey tree I was working on. Hope it helps you!

RE: John Bailey
If you want access to the tree, I'll be happy to let you get in there. If you're interested in info on others of that family... just let me know.

RE: John D. Kinser
YOU MENTIONED A FAMILY WHO RAN A SHOP AT THE CAMP. NO I DIDN'T KNOW THEM. BEING ONLY 10-11 YEARS OLD AT THE TIME I MET VERY FEW PEOPLE AT THAT CAMP AND AS YOU KNOW IT HAD A HUGE POPULATION. I KNOW WHERE BAYLOR ST. IS IN AUSTIN. IT IS A SMALL STREET ONE BLOCK NORTH OF SOUTH MAIN. MY ONLY ASSOCIATION WITH THAT STREET WAS IN 1991. THERE WAS A CELL PHONE COMPANY ON BAYLOR WHERE I BOUGHT MY FIRST CELL PHONE.I WONDER WHAT JOHN KINSER'S ASSOCIATION WAS WITH BAYLOR ST.IN EARLY 1940S. I HAVE ONE OTHER STORY ABOUT CAMP BARKELEY. MY MOTHER'S MAIDEN NAME WAS KINSER. SHE WORKED AS A HAIR STYLIST IN DOWNTOWN ABILENE DURING THE WAR YEARS. IN 1942 MRS. ROOSEVELT, THE FIRST LADY MADE A VISIT TO THE CAMP AND BEFORE HER VISIT ONE OF HER STAFF CALLED THE BEAUTY SHOP WHERE MY MOM WORKED AND MADE AN APPOINTMENT FOR MRS. ROOSEVELT. SURE ENOUGH MY MOM DID HER HAIR AND HAD A NICE VISIT WITH HER. MRS. ROOSEVELT TIPPED MY MOM AND MY SISTER AND I STILL HAVE THE COINS OF THAT TIP. MY MOTHER KEPT THEM FOR MANY YEARS AND WHEN SHE DIED IN 2007 WE FOUND THEM WITH HER BELONGINGS. SHE WAS VERY HAPPY TO HAVE MET MRS. ROOSEVELT.

RE: Charles Wheeler 23297806 photo request
Also, the memorial page shows his burial in section 12. That is where Charles 1994 is buried but section 12 was not open until 1946.

Charles Wheeler 23297806 photo request
I have posted a photo but the death date does not match the memorial page (1994 not 1944).The cemetery office confirms they have only one Charles Wheeler and their birth date agrees with Find A Grave. I think the posting contains a typographical error.
Please let me know if you think I am in error. Otherwise I will submit for an edit.
This is all assuming you have some historical knowledge of Charles Wheeler.
Thx
John

RE: John D. Kinser
HEY LBS, MANY THANKS FOR THE PHOTO OF JOHN DOUGLAS KINSER. SEVERAL PEOPLE WHO KNOW OF JOHN HAVE LOOKED FOR PHOTOS OF HIM, BUT WITH NO SUCCESS. ANOTHER TWIST OF FATE FOR ME. YOU SAID HE WAS AT CAMP BARKELEY, TEXAS IN OFFICERS CANDIDATE SCHOOL. I WAS BORN AND RAISED IN ABILENE, TEXAS WHERE THE CAMP WAS ONLY A FEW MILES FROM DOWNTOWN ABILENE. I LIVED NEXT DOOR TO ANOTHER BOY WHOSE FATHER WAS STATIONED AT THE CAMP. AS A RESULT I GOT SEVERAL INVITATIONS TO GO WITH HIS FAMILY TO HAVE LUNCH AT THE CAMP.
LITTLE DID I KNOW THAT DECADES LATER I WOULD BE WRITING A BIO OF JOHN DOUGLAS KINSER.TODAY THE WELL KNOWN AFB IN ABILENE USES SOME OF THE LAND THAT WAS THE CAMP. THERE ARE THREE REASONS I BECAME INVOLVED IN JOHN'S STORY. FIRST OF ALL MY MOTHER IS A KINSER AND I HAVE DONE EXTENSIVE GENEALOGY RESEARCH ON MY KINSER FAMILY. SECOND JOHN IS A DISTANT COUSIN OF MINE AS YOU MIGHT SUSPECT.THIRD WE HAVE AN INFORMAL KINSER RESEARCH GROUP AND I BEGAN TO GET QUERIES FROM MY FELLOW KINSER RESEARCHERS AS TO JOHN'S PLACE IN THE KINSER GENEALOGY. SO I WAS HARDLY PREPARED TO FIND OF HIS MURDER. I LIVED IN AUSTIN FOR 4 YEARS IN THE 1950S AS I WAS IN GRADUATE SCHOOL THERE. I MOVED TO AUSTIN IN 1954 AND JOHN WAS KILLED IN 1951. HOWEVER, I KNOW ALL ABOUT THE LITTLE PITCH AND PUTT GOLF COURSE HE OWNED AS THERE WAS A RESTAURANT I ATE AT MANY TIME WHICH WAS JUST NEXT DOOR TO THE COURSE. I DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT JOHN KINSER AT THE TIME AND I DON'T PLAY GOLF SO THE COURSE DIDN'T HAVE ANY MEANING FOR ME AT THE TIME. I UNDERSTAND NOW THAT THERE IS STILL A BULLET HOLE IN THE DOOR OF THE GLUB HOUSE FROM ONE OF THE ROUNDS THAT MISSED IT'S TARGET. ONE FACT WE HAVE NEVER SOLVED IS WEATHER JOHN WAS MARRIED OR NOT.
