I have been working on my family genealogy since 1981 (before the internet) and I love all the interesting stories and photos I have found.My father was Palmer Burreson from Bosque County, TX and through him I have my Norwegian Heritage. My mother was Mabel Angeline Burroughs and her family history takes me through Oklahoma, Kansas, Connecticut and then back to England. I wish I had started genealogy before my father passed so that I could have recorded more of his stories. My mother was a good story teller and I have recorded many of her stories. I started school in Cranfills Gap, TX then on to Waco, TX. My working career has been with computers and computer software in Waco and the Dallas area. I am now retired and love to travel (still finding genealogy trips to take). The last genealogy trip I made with my mother was to Connecticut on the first flight after 9-11. She was 97 years young and was thrilled to see first hand where her Burroughs and Middlebrook families came from in Fairfield County, CT.
RE: Mary Martha Todd I was trying to find the cemetery in Nov of 2012, but we didn't find it this time. I'm hoping to find it the next time we are in Lawrence. Mary Martha is my great grandpa's sister. She died before he was born. I "would" like the other photo's if you wouldn't mind...If I use them I'll be sure & give you full credit, though I probably won't use them, I'd like to see them. Thanks Again Cora, I appreciate it.

Mary Martha Todd Thank you Cora for adding the headstone pictures for Mary Martha. We had looked for the cemetery but didn't find it. We will try again next time we get to Lawrence. Thanks again, I really appreciate it. Toni Snead
Ruthhelen and Samuel Vise -Restland Hello Ms. Wilson, I received notice that you had sponsered the memorials of your sister Ruthhelen Vise and her husband Samuel Vise who are both buried in Restland Cemetery. I have the privilege of maintaining their memorials so I wanted to thank you for your sponsership. I agree that the ads are a distraction on the memorials, just as I recognize the need for revenue to provide the webpage service. I took the liberty of updating your family memorials with obituaries and other family links. Please let me know if you would like to have other information added, or if you have any suggestions concerning the memorials. Sherry Lawrence
