Bio and Links
Bio Photo First of all let me start by thanking the findagrave members who are the boots on the ground who are logging data and creating memorials, your work is invaluable to us all and no words can express my appreciation. I've seen some of my ancestors added to this site I thought I would never ever see.
I am a retired business man living near San Antonio, TX. As my tree grows larger so do the names of families I never knew I was related too.
My primary family names are Echols,Brett,Butsch, and Keith.
Love to hear from you and am willing to help in anyway I can, this is a huge group effort! Findagrave is an incredible resource and will only continue to be so in comiing years.

Myron Smith Allen
Find a grave memorial number 46884452 for Myron Smith Allen contains a great photo of Mr. Allen which was added by you. I am writing an article for the Friends of Rhinebeck Cemetery about Allen and wondering if I could use your photo?

Find A Grave Memorial #67544712 has a picture of my uncle in a Pilots baseball uniform. Is there any info on when this picture was taken, where and what city did this team play in?
I am a new member. I hope you can help.

duplicate photos
Charles Bunn Bunny Hearn 5/1891-10/1959 and Elmer Lafayette Bunny Hearn 1/1904 - 3/31/1974 have the same photo. Which one is the correct one? Thank you. Carol Tessein

Dolly Gray
Greetings Mr. Echols -
I'm (slowly) working on a biography of William "Dolly" Gray (1878-1956), American League and PCL pitcher. I'm wondering if you can direct me to where I might obtain a high-resolution version of the wonderful photo you've posted of Mr. Gray. I'd very much like to include it in my book.
Many thanks! - John

Hi Gordon,
My wife's Aunt was married to John Byrne from Silver Bow, Montana. But we found out that there are many many Byrne (s) from Montana and we thought we had narrowed it down to who it was, but was mistaken. Our John married Mary Lacey in Boone, Iowa in 1908 and they were divorced the same year. We assumed he went back to Montana, but can't find any record of him (since there were many Byrne (s) with the name John. But we do know he mother was Esther Kinsella. Do you any source's on Esther and Thomas Byrne and their children. Could we swap data via email. my email address is

John Douglas Taitt Memorial 47041794
Saw the photo you posted on Memorial 47041794 for professional baseball player John Douglas "Poco" Taitt. Wondering if you are related to him in some way?
If so, do you know of any wives other than my grandmother or do you know if he ever had any children?

John was the 2nd husband of my grandmother Mary Frances Eddins (1st married name Hill). She was a singer and Nashville, TN radio personality known as "Fanny Hill". See Find A Grave Memorial 28720621. John was married to her 1935-1937, during the years he worked for the TN Vols.

I have Linked them on his Memorial and added a photo of them.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
