Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was raised in a large extended family in the west Texas town of Balmorhea and have always loved knowing how we were related to people. My grandmother took me to the cemetery when I asked her to tell me about the family tree. I have been hooked ever since. That was in the late 1960's and I am still visiting cemeteries.

My children thougt we were on vacation when we would visit a cemetery... and we usually were!!

Of cousrse I could never have done my research alone and I owe many people for their assistance.
One of those is my very patient husband Bobby.
He has been following me around for 37 years. He is also my technical assistant since I don't know a thing about downloading photos and all that.

Dorothy S Field

You asked my sources. I pieced the story together from many sources. But a lot of information on her disappearance came from a book called "A Fate Worse Than Death: Indian Cavtivities in the West" by by Gregory and Susan Michno.

Go to google search engine enter terms like Field, Mckavett, Indians reward. There are many sources listed.

The book is listed and if you click on it the story about her is on pages 156 and 157.

RE: Stuart graves
That's OK Marty... mistakes happen. Still have to go out there anyway....have two other photos that I claimed. It's just down the road from my mother's house so it's no problem. I see that you list Cox's & Moore's in your family tree.... my husband's side has the same and wonder if we may be distant cousins. Will have to visit about that sometime.... do ya'll live near Buchanan? Hope to hear from you soon!

Thanks for taking the time and effort to take the photos of all the Stuarts for me. Thanks to you I now have all my grandmother's brothers and sisters located and documented. Roxie was the last but now she been found. Maybe I can repay the favor someday.

RE: Tombstone Nora Woods Crawford
Thank you so much. I replied to the email I received, but in case that didn't get to you I wanted you to know I appreciate what you do. I'm also looking for the mother of Nora Woods Crawford. Her name is Mary D. Sampson Woods Pierce. Her obit listed the cemetery the same as Nora's. If you could get that I will appreciate that also.

Tombstone Nora Woods Crawford
Thank you so much for the photo. I appreciate it very much. Do you have a listing for Mary D. Woods or Pierce? She is Nora Francis Crawford's mother. She passed away March 7, 2003 and buried in Wallace Creek Cemetery. Thank for any help you can give me.

Thanks for the headstone partial photo. Do you have a photo of the entire headstone that you can add to his memorial? Thanks.
