Bio and Links
Bio Photo In the early 1980's, I curiously began searching for my ancestors. It has gone from curiosity to a passion all consuming. There is always something new to discover!! I owe it all to my BFF, Geneva!!
***********************
For those of you who sit in front of a cemetery book or a newspaper obituary column copying deaths into a cemetery, I truly feel sorry for you. For those of you who complain about those of us who have "Unknown Burials". I believe the name of this program is "Find A Grave". The hopes of family researchers is that some one some where will FIND our lost ancestor and may even find a tombstone of that loved one. As for me, I am so proud that this site has come about where I can share my family with others and hopefully find long lost family that I would never have found otherwise. Thank you, FindAGrave.
**********************
SURNAMES I AM RESEARCHING:
DYE --- JOHNSON.
WILLIAMS --- PARKINSON.
WEST --- SCOTT.
THOMPSON --- JIMMERSON.
FENWICK --- THOMPSON.
LANTOW --- RIVES.
********************************
If you come across someone I have entered in a cemetery that is your ancestor and you have pictures or a bio you would like to add, OR you would like a transfer, don't hesitate to contact me through the EDIT button. I will transfer if they are not related to me.
************************************
Please be advised that links and other data on memorials [other than those for my immediate family members] more often than not come from other Find A Grave members and/or guests and/or from Ancestry. It has come to my attention that edits/links that you don't approve within 21 days will automatically be added to the memorial. Please double check & verify all information before taking what you read as gospel.
LINKING NOTE: Too many errors have come up with people submitting "Edits". I will no longer change any memorials without a verifiable source being provided.
*************************************
PLEASE-NO DEATH CERTIFICATES on memorials I have created or manage!!
*************************************
VOLUNTEER PHOTOGRAPHERS: I appreciate your enthusiasm in taking tombstone pictures in cemeteries, BUT I do not appreciate additional tombstone photos on memorials when there is already a clear tombstone picture for that memorial.
*******************************
FAMILY PHOTOS: I invite you to enjoy the family pictures posted, but ask that they not be copied and placed on any other website without my written permission.

RE: Tombstone photos
You are more than welcome. We found a POC for Luling but they haven't returned our phone call. We are going back soon because we have a listing for those before 1970.

RE: Memorial 48781174
Hello, Kay - Yes, you are "singing to the choir"! I know exactly what you are saying since I've been researching for several years. It is amazing to me how some people copy information over without really even thinking about it. Also, my tree on Ancestry was originally public, but changed to private because of inaccurate copy-overs to other trees. Which, of course, means that over time they are sure to have tons of mistakes in their trees. But apparently, they just don't really care that much about being exact. But, more than likely, my tree still contains mistakes - it's always a work in progress. Sarah Jane is my 3XGAunt; her brother George Washington Robinson is my 2XGFather. Yes, I know the name was also Roberson. The story my grandmother told me [and there is room for error here] is that when GW homesteaded in KS, his war pension documents had the name as Robinson. Since it was too much trouble to try to communicate with Washington DC, he used that name. However, I have visited his grave and taken pictures of his Civil War marker and the name there is...Robison! I haven't been able to get back past GW's and Sarah Jane's parents. This family is dear to me since my grandmother's cousin who lived in Erie KS gave me an old album full of photos. That is where I found Sarah Jane - my grandmother was able to identify her for me. She looks very noble and sweet in the photo you have. Is she an ancestor of yours? I would love to know. Please visit GW's Find A Grave memorial #29007174 if you haven't already. Thank you, again for posting such a great photo! Deborah

Memorial 48781174
Kay - I'm sorry, I didn't ready your page before adding a photo to this memorial for Sarah Jane Robinson Wikle. In case you have not noticed, I thought I would let you know. She was the sister to my ancestor George Washington Robinson and I had this photo in my possession. I did enjoy seeing the photo you placed there of Sarah as an older lady. May I capture that photo and add to my family tree? Thank you - Deborah Clements

Willie M Jackson is in plot 51 not the potters field. The picture I took of her headstone didnt come out well and I just haven had a good day to take another put I will go by today and do that. And can take a picture of the plot that the Jackson child is buried in and maybe one day Ill come across her obituary.

Jackson child
The Jackson Child is in the Potters field and has no marker. Golda V Jackson is on the other side of the cemetery. Two different children.
