Bio and Links
Bio Photo I work primarily with my relatives memorials. Management of non-relatives' memorials may be transferred upon request. I welcome information and corrections, including cited source documents.
Memorials I post are from personal knowledge, death certificates, newspaper articles, obituaries, interviews of friends and family in some cases with the person himself. Sometimes the stories are funny sometimes they are just not pretty, but it is as factual as I can make it. We are all a product of our own personal family history. Some folks get a bit excited about what their family ancestors did or didn't do. We are not responsible for that nor does it determine that we are good or bad people because of it. It is how we live our life that determines that. What I learned from genealogy is how dam hard it was to survive. In a lot of cases survival was the only occupation.

To provide information or request a transfer, please use the "Suggest A Correction (SAC)" link, located on the Edit Tab (upper right corner) of the page in question. Using this procedure will send a message to my email that includes links to both the memorial page as well as your Contributor ID so I'll be sure to update or transfer the correct page. Don't forget to specify your relationship and to put Find a Grave in the subject line.

RE: Elizabeth R.
In our family she was always referred to as "Granny" and she had passed by the time I was born, so all I have is rememberances. I remember hearing about her raising baby turkeys, feeding them boiled eggs with a little mustard and s&p. As I child I liked my eggs like that and they said it was from her. She and my grandmother Mabel homesteaded in Roosevelt co. NM after they were both widowed with two children, my dad Bill and my aunt "Happy". I didn't realize for 50 years that she had a real name! Verna Lee.
Dad wrote a letter to his uncle Bill a time or two. And once visited Sweden and met Charles W. Graham and then later Charles sent him a "compote dish" that had belonged to his mother. (My sister Judy has it now).
GRanny wound up in Cortez Co. Near my Aunt, she had a gentleman friend "ol' man Howard" he lived next door, but they never married because she would have to give up her "widows pension" and she would never do that! Her two sons were sort of shiftless, and she had to take them and there families in time after time and make do on the pension.

RE: Age gap between Elizabeth R.
Thank you for your response, I have so many questions! First, what was her middle name? Our family never knew anything but "Eliza", there were a few letters, long since lost, but we thought she had a younger brother Charlie H Graham, but he was closer in age to her children. He said he was part if the "second batch" that she helped raise. Do you know if there was a second wife after Nancy Jane? Seemed like there might have been another named" Elmer"?

Freeland Graham
i really enjoyed your research on the Grahams, My dad always said there were some "renegades" but never elaborated! I am still a little puzzled about my G Grandmother Eliza Graham and how she was so much older than her siblings, but I am new at this and might have the whole thing wrong. Are the Grahams your family?

Delpha Wale
I am not able to add a head stone photo for Delpha either because there are too many photo's already on her memorial page. Let me know if you take one picture off and I can add the head stone photo. If I don't hear from you I won't worry about adding it. Thanks,, Kay

Hi, I have taken a picture of the head stone for Juanita but I'm not able to attach it to her memorial page because there are already 5 pictures on it. Would you want to take one picture off so I can add it? If not I won't worry about it. Thanks, Kay

Gregory Bain
I created the memorial for Gregory Bain after doing extensive research regarding Amylodosis. There is so little known about this disease most people who suffer from it are not diagnosed until they have passed. How do I know? When my husband was first and finally diagnosed with it he was given 3 months to live. Thankfully we found one of the top specialist in the country who teaches at Baylor medical school in Dallas, TX. After chemo and stem cell transplant five years later we travel to Texas once a month where Tim is tested to make sure the horrid disease has retuned. Tim has this incurable disease and always will. It attacked his heart and digestive system. Tim's is in Remission but we pay every month it hasn't returned. Tim's dr.
says it is rare Tim's hasn't returned.

Did you know Amylodosis is an inherited disease. There is a 50/50 chance family members will inherit this disease.

So, now you know why this memorial is important to me.

Hi,

Sorry, but I think you have the wrong person. I didn't add any of those memorials and I'm not sure which person you meant to post to.
