I am a native Texan, born in Gainesville, Cooke, County, Texas on 3 March 1945. I enlisted in the U.S. Air Force and served from 1964-1968. I made my living as a mechanical engineer for Bell Helicopter for 41 years and am now enjoying retirement. My interest in genealogy was really kindled when my father died in 1978 and I inherited boxes and boxes of documents.
RE: PEARL YEAKLEY Don, My goodness, my source was Earl Yeakley and he stated that he was shot. The story was that Dad came home from hunting ans left his gun propped up by the door. A neighbors son came over, picked it up and pointed it at him, the gun went off. Looks like I got two different stories. Earl is gone now. He used to come to Arizona during the winter and I would see him. Not sure how I check this out but I will. Just give me a little time and I will get back to you. Don, you have worked hard on this too and provided a lot that I did not find. I thank you too.
RE: Lena Solomon Thank you, Donald, for taking and posting the photo of the gravestone for Lena Solomon. Did you take that today? I wonder why her date of death is not on there. Maybe she was buried somewhere else. Having been born in 1902, I doubt that she is still living. Bob
Geyer grave marker Thanks so much for the photo of Anne Geyer's grave marker. I had also requested a photo of her husband Hugh's grave marker, and since they are both on the same one, would you mind posting the same photo on his memorial? His memorial is #135075330.
RE: Norma Pauline Brooks Blount (Memorial #108895927) Since the lady in the office gave me such details I thought this would be an easy one!! Thank you so much for looking and for your time. I will contact the office again and see if she has a stone and if I can get the actual plot location. I REALLY DO appreciate your extra effort to fill my request!
