Bio and Links
I am interested in Decker, Goodwin, Mehaffey, Ramstetter, Springall, Wright and Withers on my side and Connell, Higgins, Franklin and Bencini on my wife's side.

I will happily transfer memorials for those who are not my own family. In addition, I will be happy to add information to a memorial that is submitted using the Edit tab.

I'm using this area to provide permission to use any of my images on FindAGrave for personal family trees. I only ask that credit be given to me as the source. (I hope other folks will likewise give permissions for personal use of their images on here).

Gary Clark Ewell
I would like to give you some additional information on the Elwell family.

I grew up on the Youngblood chicken farm in Robinson and Gary's parents, Jack and Marylyn were neighbors. I was about 10 years old when Gary's brother, John Bryan was born back in 1953. As a 10 year old little boy I had a big crush on Marylyn. I was sad when Jack and Marylyn moved to Whitney where Jack operated a feed store. I remember going to Whitney for the grand opening of the feed store.

While in Robinson Marylyn had a nephew named Jerry who spent part of the summer with Jack and Marylyn. Jerry died about a year later from leukemia. When Jerry died I wanted to attend the funeral, but my parents would not allow me to miss school to go to the funeral. My guess is that Jerry is probably buried in the Kyle Cemetery. Jerry had an older sister that was closer to my age that was cute as a button. I had a crush on her too. I do not think that Marylyn minded. I do not remember Jerry's last name nor do I remember his sister's name. Seems like it might have been Jane.

I spoke to Marylyn a few years ago when my Aunt Dorothy Hague died. Jack and my Uncle HC Hague worked together on the hen farm.

A funny little story about Jerry. He and his sister were at my house, and we had been playing on the roof of our detached garage. The garage had an attached wash room with a shed roof on one side. We were using the garage roof like a slide. Poor little Jerry thought that there was a shed roof also on the other side of the garage. By the the time he realized there was no shed roof on the other side, it was too late. He slid of the roof and landed on his bottom knocking the breath out of him. We were just thankful that he was not injured.

If you know where Jerry is buried, I would really like to leave flowers on his Find A Grave memorial.

Thank you for listing to my story.

Remembering Vervia Mehaffey Everitt
Hi Will,

Some of the descendants have started putting together a descendant Facebook page called "Remembering Vervia Mehaffey Everitt"

Maybe you may find something interesting.

Hi, Will-
You're welcome!

I added the photos for Sotirios. When I went to check his memorial, I saw that you had submitted a photo request. I took the photos I posted on the same day as the ones I took for John but hadn't gotten around to posting them. The photo of the entire headstone is slightly different as I took one with my phone and the other with my camera. If you have a preference, I will be glad to post whichever you want on both of their memorials. Let me know.

Oops! Sorry foe the duplicates on Bessie & Herbert. I have deleted them and added photos to your memorials. If you are interested I will transfer the Springall's that I created when I walked that cemetery, to you. Please advise.

Appreciate to additional info you have shared with me.
And your contribution to findagrave.
