Bio and Links
Just a guy that enjoys history and thinks that history and geneology are an important part of our lives. I was born and raised in Western Pennsylvania, and now I live outside of Houston, Texas. At home, I am trying to get as many local cemeteries listed as possible. I am currently focusing on "forgotten" and out of the way cemeteries in East Texas. I also travel quite a bit with my job, so in the evenings on the road, I visit local cemeteries and try to fulfill photo requests. I also travel back to Western PA frequently and try to get cemeteries there.

I try my best to try and find out as much as possible about each person using public records, obituaries, etc. However, I know that I will make mistakes. PLEASE let me know if there are any errors so that I can correct them.

Transfers: Please follow the FAG guidelines for transfers. If the person memorialized is not a direct relative - as defined by FAG - please do not ask for transfers.

The greatest thing about love is that no matter how many people you give it to or how much you give, you never have less than you started with.

Lorene Lyles
Hi, Rick,

Just wondering, since you have the memorial for Lorene Latishie Lyles, is you have any idea where her brother Homer Lyles Jr. is buried?

Thanks. Have a good evening.

Howell Edward Wright, Sr. #97763626
Hey Rick,
Would you please transfer my Uncle Howell to me. It would give me and my family great comfort. I would like to add his biography of his life and connect him to family members.
He is someone I've known my entire life and is my Aunt Charlotte's husband.

Thank You, Bill Ward

Correction for John Ed Stafford
Could you also make the following correction / addition for John's memorial? ( #61575205 )

Although his Texas death certificate says he was single, his widow was actually Violet J (née Campbell) of Manistee, Manistee County, Michigan (1885 - 1949).

I don't have a record for her grave, but I do have further documentation for John and her if you need it.

Thanks again,

Correction for Frank Stafford
Could you please make the following correction to the bio for Frank Stafford's memorial ( #61470612 )?

Frank was not married to Elnora, and her children listed in the bio are not his. (She was married to another Frank Stafford, who was born in Texas.)

The remainder of the bio is correct, but could you please remove the section about Elnora and her children?

(I tried to send this via the Edit button, but it didn't work. Either that, or the error message itself was an error, and you just got 6 or 7 copies of this via email... .)

Barbara Inez Tipton Voth
Hello from Tennessee! My husband is Max Nichols, Jr. Barbara is the daughter of Blanche Nichols and William Lee Tipton. Blanche is my husband's aunt, making Barbara his first cousin. Barbara disappeared from the family for many years. Through Find A Grave I found her. Are you a part of her family, or do you know her family?

Both Blanche and Lee led exciting lives. He grew up in Cades Cove and Blanche in Calderwood and ALCOA, all here in Tennessee.

If you are related, you might be very interested in the stories surrounding Barbara's parents and ancestors! Thank you! Tommie Moser Nichols, Powell, TN
