Bio and Links
Bio Photo PHOTOS: Any photo I have posted on Find-a-Grave is intended to be used...please consider this your permission to copy and/or post any of my photos.

DUPLICATES: I try my best to do a thorough check before entering any memorials. I will never intentionally create a duplicate, although sometimes it just happens with the delay in the Find-a-Grave system at times. Even if my memorial was entered first, I will usually delete IF the other memorial is complete. My interest is not in numbers but in the precious souls who walked among us on this earth and their descendants who may search for them in the future.

CORRECTIONS: I'll be happy to make corrections on any of my entries if needed, or I will gladly transfer memorials to family members (at my discretion when it involves my kinfolks). I would appreciate your using the "Edit" function to request corrections.

ABOUT ME: I have lived in Sweetwater, Texas all but four years of my life. I love to help people find their family information through this volunteer work.

MY FAMILIES: (just to name a few)

HEALER
Cardwell * Hammond * Turner * Elam * Fry * Douglass

COOK
Hughes * Thomas * Kirkland * Lee * Beard * Willingham * Folmar

DAVIS

Always interested in hearing from anyone with any connections to my families.

MY CEMETERY TIES: I have strong family ties to the following cemeteries:

* Frankston City (Anderson County, TX)
* Roby (Fisher County, TX)

THE RECORDING OF A CEMETERY
By Thelma Greene Reagan

Today we walked where others walked
On a lonely, windswept hill;
Today we talked where other cried
For Loved Ones whose lives are stilled.

Today our hearts were touched
By graves of tiny babies;
Snatched from the arms of loving kin,
In the heartbreak of the ages.

Today we saw where the grandparents lay
In the last sleep of their time;
Lying under the trees and clouds -
Their beds kissed by the sun and wind.

Today we wondered about an unmarked spot;
Who lies beneath this hollowed ground?
Was it a babe, child, young or old?
No indication could be found.

Today we saw where Mom and Dad lay.
We had been here once before
On a day we'd all like to forget,
But will remember forever more.

Today we recorded for kith and kin
The graves of ancestors past;
To be preserved for generations hence,
A record we hope will last.

Cherish it, my friend; preserve it, my friend,
For stones sometimes crumble to dust
And generations of folks yet to come
Will be grateful for your trust.

Transfer memorial
IF not related to you would appreciate if you would transfer Herbert Yulee Gregg to me. He is my grandfather's brother.

Thank you

RE: Lula Viola Horton Lewers
Okay thank you. I just want to make sure that info is accurate. I normally don't tell people corrections but I am positive Mama would have told me if Granny and her siblings had been adopted. Just an fyi. Thanks again and have a blessed day.
I wish I knew how to input onto the graves. There is a lot of info that I have and sometimes I just get frustrated.
Find a Grave has become an amazing source for genealogy as well as for fun.
Have a blessed day. Nora

You are correct. Please do not delete them as spouses. The mistake was mine. I was trying to link her memorial to her parents memorial and the find a grave program wasn't letting me. The message said that there was already a link to her husband. So I deleted her husbands memorial number and kept her parents number. I didn't realize it would prompt you to delete them as a spouse. Anyway, thank you for taking the time to realize this and send me this message. So, no, do not delete him as her spouse. Thank You.

Lula Viola Horton Lewers
Hi. My Grandmother was Velma Guess Dansby. A sister to Lula. I am not sure who put Horton behind all of the sibling names but they were never officially Hortons. Just an FYI. Thank you for all the work you have obviously done. After becoming a Mamaw in 2014 I became a lot more interested in Granny's genealogy. Keep on doing what you do and again thanks for the info.

Jewell Welch Drake
Hello.

Per your request, I've added the parent link to Jewell's Find A Grave memorial.
I noticed that you were the one to create memorial accounts for her parents and her sibling. If Jewell is a part of your family tree, I would be happy to transfer her memorial care over to you. Just say the word.
Happy new year!

Sherri Rycroft Foster & Chip
I just wanted to tell you how appreciative I am for the extra care in providing the obituary for Sherri and your notes for Chip. Providing this information for a loved ones who have passed, without benefit of markers, is truly going the extra mile.

Thank you.

(Related by marriage to the Rycroft Family).
