Bio and Links
Bio Photo Retired bean counter now tracking ancestors instead of numbers. Mother of three and grandmother of five fascinating grandchildren. Married to the same man for 50+ years.

Knew the names and cemeteries of all my grandparents and Ggrandparents before I could write. On one family trip we stopped at the Steekee Cemetery in Loudon,Tn. I transcribbed stones because my mother was so excited she couldn't write. Now 50+ years later I still use those notes!

RE: Ernest Dillon
Mary, found several more of your WWI veterans at bryan city cemetery. There are a few you won't find because stones are gone or lost. One more to find there then we will move on to another cemetery. If I could get some flags we could be putting them on graves as we find them!

WWI soldiers
We were at several cemetery's yesterday hunting for soldiers and we found several of them. Pictures have been added to them. I will send you a list and gps readings when I get home. I will continue to hunt and help during the month. Some may be impossible! The cemeteries are so bad!

You're very welcome. All Aggies go to Heaven - I believe I have that right. There were no others with that name near him.

RE: 134365483 Eliza A McKibben
I thought I did add it as other. I just deleted it and re-added it as other. I usually always put any photo that isnt a picture of the person as other, so not sure what happened, but its under other now. THANKS so much.

I love the copy of the will that you put on Elizas memorial. However like death certificates the photo of the will & other types of documentation it needs to added as Other not as Person. Please see the Find a Graves rules. Thanks so much. Mary

I would like to pick up your photo request but Sparkman Hillcrest (SH) does not like to provide burial locations to volunteers, citing privacy issues. Your cooperation is needed in order for requests to be filled. The volunteers will need you to call SH and request the location. Their phone number is 214-363-5401. Once you have the location, please add it to your request. Thanks.

RE: 130289142 Elliott H Whitlock

RE: 130289142 Elliott H Whitlock
Hi friend. I found he was an "officer" in WWI, so must have attended college (didn't find where). My source:" Ohio Soldiers in WWI" says Elliott Howland Whitlock born May 5, 1867 in Brooklyn, NY. Maj. Engineers May 1, 1917 from Officers' Reserve Corps; Lt Col Engineers Dec 31, 1917; Officers' Training Corps Ft Harrison Ind to May 14, 1917; Prov. Training Reg. Engineers OTC Ft Leavenworth KS to Aug 31, 1917; Meuse-Argonne; Defensive Sector Feb 1918 to May 29, 1918. Disch. April 1919. Award MCC

This memorial bothers me - it seems more about his wives and step children than about him. Can you tell me if he graduated from Texas A&M College in 1886 and was he in WWI? Thanks. Mary

I've posted a transcript from the Salem Lutheran Cemetery in Lamartine that indicates Dr. GA Meeker's burial is there. I think this tends to confirm that the stone there is the correct location.

It's worth noting, though, that the transcriber had January, not March for the death month.

It's still on my list to check it out for myself the next time I'm up that way.
