Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have used the Find-a-Grave website quite a bit in my genealogy research and think it is a wonderful resource for all who are interested in their family histories. I am happy to contribute in any way & delighted to hear from long-lost relatives who are pursuing the same ancestral lines as mine.

Feel free to use any headstone photos taken by me for genealogy or family history purposes (you can credit me if you wish but not necessary). If you choose to post photos of persons, families, etc. to other websites (like Ancestry.com), please credit me or the individuals I have credited on Find-a-Grave for the photos.

Schlesselman in Jim Wells Co.
Hello Jean,

I am trying to find out more about
# 73505670 Heinrich ‘Henry’ Schlesselman 1903-1949
# 73947637 Lena M Schlesselman Martens 1907-1981

And you seem to know about families in Jim Wells Co.

Do you happen to know any more about the Ancestors, or descendants of these two?

I found a rather sloppy census entry (from Chicago) that might include Lena

RE: Madison Harwell Cemetery
Jean,
It occurred to me after I emailed you last that this cemetery was probably on the "Old Harwell Place", as my relatives called it.
Several years ago, the owners left the house unlocked all the time, and the gate at the dirt road open--more or less a public road open to adjoining neighbors. My cousin, who lived very close, and my young children and I would take a Sunday afternoon walk and wander back there from time to time. The yard was kept clean for a house that wasn't occupied, yet I don't recall a cemetery near the house.
If it is, I don't think that would be where my Gr-Grandmother was buried, because my cousin said that her and the others' burial place was back more toward Agnew Road. She said that it had grown up badly all around it, and she died with dementia a couple of years ago, so I guess the graveyard's location passed on with her generation. However, I've enjoyed touching base with you, knowing that you were actually one of the "Harwell" family members. Happy Thanksgiving!

Madison Harwell Cemetery
Hi Jean,
I noticed that you have added pictures of graves from this cemetery, and I had to ask you some questions, as my Great-Grandmother, Luvenia Fry Willis, and two of her children are buried in a about this same location.
I was told several years ago, by an older relative, (who then lived on Mayfield road and has since passed on), that this cemetery had become very difficult to reach, because of woods and under-growth. I feel this is the same cemetery. Do you know of any others in that same locality between Mayfield and Agnew Rd? How difficult was it for you to get to graves?
Thanks for your help.
