Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been working on my family tree since April of 2011, and so far have over 10,000 family members. I have learned a lot from doing this and have enjoyed every moment! I have traveled many miles to get photos, information, & many documents! I have met many of my living relatives and would love to bring them all home with me but that is impossible! I embrace each and every one of them as if I had known them my whole life, but have known them, or met SOME only once! My life has been enlightened and enriched by this journey. If you are able to physically do this, please do it before you become disabled. You might be surprised how friendly America really is by doing so. Lots of warm, friendly, helpful, & EXTREMELY nice people out there to help in your journey!

Please remember the rules for using photos that you didn't take yourself. Give credit where credit is due!

Any corrections or transfers will be gladly taken care of.

RE: Robert E.
With more research, I believe Sam and Margaret McBee are the right parents. Another Find A Grave member sent me a edit, that Houston McBee was his dad. Houston had a son Robert, but he is about 2 years older. I get so many edits, that I don't check each one. Most are for links.

RE: James Jefferson Stuckey
I am not a relative, someone changed it through the edit process. If you feel the name is incorrect I will change it back to J. J. Stuckey. Let me know. Thanks, Jo Nelson

I had this one transferred to me, but haven't worked it yet. In my database I have that he died January 17, 1892 in Midlothian, Ellis Co., TX. Other sources have that is was 1882.

But looking at the headstone, it looks like 1892 to me. It is definitely not 1882.

What do you think?

Eliza Griffith dates
Corrected. FYI, had a grandmother who was "married to an old man, by her father at the age of 10. Fortunately the man died before he could consummate that marriage. If you dig into you family far enough, you may find the same occurrence. And "seriously?" is hurtful to some...

Edna G. Sledge Griffith, update
Edna Married John W. Murphy, June 3, 1900 in Bowie County, Texas.

She is in the 1920 Census in Bowie County as the wife of John B. Jones along with her 5 children from the Murphy marriage. There is no record of her and Mr. Jones marriage in Bowie County.

She married Edmond G Griffith, June 23, 1927 in Bowie County, Texas

I have updated her memorial if you want to review it. I also found that she was married to a John Jones for a short period. You will not be able to find any Bowie County, Texas marriage records on line between about 1908 and the early 1960's.
I will check the records next time we are at the courthouse.

Thanks so much for sending the information about no headstone for Christopher Columbus Cummings. I have updated his memorial (93181614) with more information and family links.

RE: Wright Cemetery
I added info from the 1860 & 1870 census forms of that area to the cemetery description, and it somewhat explains the presence of Mrs. Ellington (widow) and Mrs. Bittle in the family plot-they were both neighbors of the Wrights.

There do appear to be more burials there, sunken depressions and/or upright fieldstones, but those listed were all there were in the Upchurch reference. Elizabeth Bittles broken headstone was sunken and buried in leaf litter, but the portion remaining upright and her footstone leaning against a tree spoke of its hidden presence.

Fall is the best time for graving in the woods, leafless trees makes it easier to spot distant stones and it's not sauna hot & humid. Message me then and I'll be glad to act as a local guide if you want one.
