Bio Photo Note relating to Fannin County, Texas cemeteries: they have a very nice website that may immediately offer the photo you are looking for. I am trying to get them to transfer these to FindAGrave website. Find it here:
Photo Takers: please note flour and chalk and other previously accepted methods will actually damage old stone; please read these hints for using tin foil, and for flashlights to help light hard to read stones:

Please have compassion for others and if you cannot reply in a positive way, then don't reply at all.

My husband lost his battle with esophageal cancer Nov. 2014, his memorial # 139923728.

We are all fighting our own private battles and don't need the negativity. If I don't thank you promptly, please don't be harsh. I always thank volunteers as soon as I can.

Please be kind in your messages to everyone on the site.

I will put in a blanket THANK YOU here for all who do my edits/corrections; I submit too many edits and corrections to open and reply to each one, but that doesn't mean I don't appreciate your time and effort in doing them.

I am a member of and have had my DNA analysis completed, which connected me to many, many relatives, both close and distant cousins, and many I have made connections with. It also enabled me to find additional relatives on my tree because we are linked by our DNA. My personal heritage shows Great Britain and Ireland as my distinct lineages.

** From Wichita, Manhattan, and Wamego, Kansas, living in Dallas, TX area (Garland, Sachse, Caddo Mills, Celeste) since 1982. My paternal ancestors came from Ireland (Conley/Etchison/Loy/Grimes) and my maternal ancestors from Switzerland/Germany/England (Shoup/Brandon/Elledge/Boone) who migrated to Kentucky/Tennessee then to Kansas. Daniel Boone is connected in both my maternal Brandon (Edward 'Neddie') and also my paternal Conley line (Daniel & Edward's brother George W), and there is also a Lincoln connection I am sorting out because they all lived near to each other.

My husband's paternal ancestors (Siebert, Schmidt) were Russian Mennonites from Karolswalde region, Russia who migrated to Pawnee Rock, Kansas in 1875 to avoid religious persecution and brought with them the Turkey Red Winter Wheat to the U.S. His maternal ancestors immigrated from France (Breault, LeBlanc) to Kankakee, Illinois, then to Clyde-Clifton, Kansas, a French community.

Military connections: my father, a Purple Heart veteran injured in battle at Saipan, Northern Marianas, but back to battle a week later, was a Marine, 2nd Div., Pacific, in WWII in the Special Services/Intelligence team and was at all the island battles;
his father was in Army in WWI;
my brother in law, Timothy Siebert, was in Army, Ft. Campbell, KY, 101st Airborne, Desert Storm and Desert Shield.

Re: Kathryn Johnson #134105868
Hi Yellow Rose: I appreciate all the help but could you please tell me where you got the maiden name, Hilburn, for Kathryn? I try very hard to be accurate when making changes and like to check info before making changes. Again, I do appreciate all your work.

RE: William Summers # 89565588
Glad you liked it. I won't get back to Find A Grave for a while so you might want to send PRs as a reminder to me. I check them frequently.

HIS MILITARY RECORDS, DO record that he was born in 1837 on Valentine's Day. Other records agree. That's why I corrected it. I am his great granddaughter. He was married 4 times. 1) Mellisa Ann Riley. 2)Clorinda "Clarky" Ann Johnson; 3) Mariah 'Maria' E. Grist. Larkin wrote Monah Grise/t" on one of his Pension Requests. Not clear what was intended. Sad story about Mariah. Here is an excerpt
from his OBIT: "He was married four times. His first wife was Miss Melissa Riley - an own cousin of James Whitcomb Riley. To them was born one daughter who still lives - Mrs. Anna (Henry) Hunt of Kansas City, Missouri. His wife died before the out break of the war. The people who cared for the baby daughter through her father's service, concealed from her, her identity and she was reported to her father as having died! Through a singular stroke of good fortune, father and daughter were reunited about the time of her marriage.

The John Emerson Myler, Larkin's son, is my grandfather.

Virginia Lee Myler, now Cooper. I welcome any comments or questions.

RE: Lillian weaver
Lillian Weaver photo request
Hello - The Mountain View Cemetery records list Lillian as Lillian Weaver a female age 53 with a burial date of 20 December 1947. Her burial location is listed as Lot 27 East, Row 11, Space 5. The cemetery records show no other information. There is only one Weaver at this location, Valetta Adamson Weaver!! The birth & death dates on the stone do match those given for Lillian Weaver in the cemetery records. There are no other Weavers close by, so I believe this is Lillian.
Lillie’s maiden is Pharris the daughter of Frank & Martha Pharris. The 1920 census lists her as Velletta Adamson. The 1930 census lists her as Lillian V. Adamson.
Bill Doman created this memorial (#43136760) from the information listed above. There were no birth or death dates listed in the cemetery records, so he put 1900 for both. He has done this on many other memorials with the same problem. Bill has created the majority of memorials in this cemetery as well as most of the photos.
Bill created memorial #49520786 from one of the photos he took, not from the cemetery records, they are the same person.
